How to get coins in Pokémon GO

There are two ways to get coins in Pokémon Go:

  • Defending Gyms: You can earn 1 coin for every 10 minutes that one of your Pokémon defends a gym. However, you can only earn up to 50 coins per day.
  • Purchasing them from the Shop: You can purchase coins in the Shop for real money. The cost of coins varies depending on how many you purchase.

Here are some tips for earning coins from defending gyms:

  • Choose a strong Pokémon: The stronger your Pokémon, the longer it will be able to defend a gym.
  • Place your Pokémon in a high-traffic area: Gyms that are located in high-traffic areas are more likely to be attacked, which will give you more opportunities to earn coins.
  • Be patient: It can take some time to earn enough coins to purchase items from the Shop. Don’t get discouraged if you don’t earn a lot of coins right away.
