How Pokémon coins currency works:
The Pokémon Dollar is the main currency used in most known regions of the Pokémon world.
Pokémon coins currency is the premium currency that you can use to buy egg incubators, lucky eggs, lure modules, bag upgrades etc.
If you want Poke coins, you’re going to have to pay for them. If you’re playing Pokémon Go, you can use the gym system to get the coins for free.
How to get Pokémon coins currency:
Essentially, there are three main methods to earn Pokecoins:
- Visiting as many Pokestops as possible
- Defending a gym
- Purchasing with real-life cash
You can take over a gym and station a Pokémon there to defend it against other attacking players. Keep in mind that teamwork is important and you can then earn a daily “defender bonus” which amounts to 10 Pokecoins about every 21 hours.
These gyms can be stationed anywhere from local statues to park benches.
Pokestops are usually located in public places that are frequented by many people. As you spin the image, items will appear on your screen. Tap the items to add to your inventory.
To collect your Pokémon coins currency, go to the shop within the app and tap on the shield icon.
Another option available to only Android users is to download the Google Opinion Rewards app. You can earn credit in the Google Play store by answering surveys. You can then use those credits to purchase Pokecoins.
