If you feed the Cram-o-matic 4 coloured Apricorns, you’ll receive one of many Poké Ball items–the ball you get will be random. To determine what balls you may get, first you need to know that each of the 7 Apricorns has its own list of possible balls. Please refer to the tables below.
|Red Apricorn||Blue Apricorn||Yellow Apricorn||Green Apricorn||Rate|
|Poké Ball||Poké Ball||Poké Ball||Poké Ball||24.7%|
|Great Ball||Great Ball||Great Ball||Great Ball||24.7%|
|Ultra Ball||Dive Ball||Ultra Ball||Ultra Ball||24.7%|
|Repeat Ball||Net Ball||Quick Ball||Nest Ball||24.7%|
|Level Ball||Lure Ball||Moon Ball||Friend Ball||1%|
|Safari Ball||Safari Ball||Safari Ball||Safari Ball||0.1%|
|Sport Ball||Sport Ball||Sport Ball||Sport Ball||0.1%|
|Pink Apricorn||White Apricorn||Black Apricorn||Rate|
|Poké Ball||Poké Ball||Poké Ball||24.7%|
|Great Ball||Great Ball||Great Ball||24.7%|
|Ultra Ball||Premier Ball||Dusk Ball||24.7%|
|Heal Ball||Timer Ball||Luxury Ball||24.7%|
|Love Ball||Fast Ball||Heavy Ball||1%|
|Safari Ball||Safari Ball||Safari Ball||0.1%|

If you use the same Apricorn 4 times, you’ll only get the Poké Balls listed for that specific Apricorn. Meanwhile, if you mix and match different Apricorns, the game will randomly choose one of the lists–proportional to the ratio of Apricorns.
For example, if you combine 3 Red Apricorns and 1 Yellow Apricorn, there’s a 75% (3 in 4) chance of getting a ball from the red list and a 25% (1 in 4) chance of getting one from the yellow list. Your chance of getting a 1% rate item is still 1%, but you’re 3 times more likely to get a Level Ball (red), rather than a Moon Ball (yellow).
Shall we go again?
After using the Cram-o-matic to create a Poké Ball, you’ll be asked if you want to use it again with the same recipe (so long as you have enough of each Apricorn). This is helpful if you’re trying to gun for an elusive Poké Ball.
Note that giving the Cram-o-matic anything less than 4 Apricorns (eg. 3 Apricorns) will generate an item from the General Recipes instead.
