If, the player uses single wish and doesn’t get a 4-star or above item in 9 consecutive pulls. He is guaranteed to get a 4-star or above item in the 10th pull. Similarly, if a player doesn’t get a 5-star item with 89 wishes, then the 90th wish is guaranteed to be a 5-star item. This is the pity system in action.
Pity System in promotional character wishes
For Genshin Impact promotional character wishes, when players get a 4-star item, they have a 50% chance to get a 4-star promotional character(characters shown on banner). If, they don’t get a 4-star promotional playable character(instead they get a 4-star weapon). Then the next 4-star item is guaranteed to be a 4-star featured character.

So, the next big question players have, is “How does the pity system gets reset in Genshin Impact?”. The answer to that is quite a simple one. When a player gets a 4-star or 5-star item, the pity system gets a reset. In simple words, suppose a player gets a 4-star in-game item in his/her 5th wish. Then the pity counter will reset to ‘0’ i.e now he is not guaranteed to get a 4-star item in the next 5-wish( 10th wish).
