Are you tired of spending too much time catching Pokémon in Pokémon GO? With the catch screen and Pokéball animation, it can be time-consuming, especially during events like GO Fest and Community Day. Every second counts, especially when encountering Shiny Pokémon. Luckily, there’s an effective technique called quick catch that allows you to catch Pokémon faster and save precious seconds by skipping the catch animation. In this guide, we’ll show you how to use the quick catch technique.

Follow these steps to quick catch Pokémon and skip the Pokéball animation in Pokémon GO:

  • Tap on the Pokémon you want to catch.
  • Place one of your fingers on the Pokéball or Berry icon.
  • Choose the hand that feels most comfortable for you.
  • While in the encounter, drag the icon to the opposite side of the screen, but don’t let go yet.
  • Use your other hand to throw the Pokéball accurately.
  • Once the Pokémon is inside the Pokéball, release the finger holding one of the icons.
  • This will open the dedicated Pokéball or Berry menu. Tap on the screen to exit.
  • Look for the run icon at the top left corner of the screen.
  • Tap on it to return to the main screen.
  • It may take some practice and trial and error to get used to this technique.

After performing the quick catch, you can check your Pokémon menu to see if you successfully caught the Pokémon. Keep in mind that the game determines whether or not you caught it as soon as you throw the Pokéball, although there may be a slight delay. Remember, this method doesn’t guarantee catching every Pokémon and you may miss out on those with a low catch rate. If needed, consider using an Ultra Ball or Great Ball to increase your chances of quick catching Pokémon in Pokémon GO.
