    You can create whatever you want, but in order to deploy it, you'll need some ether. – goodvibration Jul 29 '19 at 13:49

To deploy and to interact with a smart contract on the Ethereum mainnet you will need Ether to pay the transaction fees.

You can develop on a local testnet (e.g. ganache-cli) and/or public testnets: Ropsten, Rinkeby, Kovan, Goerli. For public testnets there are faucets which will give you testnet Ether to use. There are also mobile wallets that will connect to public testnets.

For learning and development, a public testnet may meet your needs.
