PokeCoins are the chief currency in Pokemon GO. Below is a short guide to getting free PokeCoins.
Trainers can use PokeCoins to purchase various items – Lure Modules that can be attached to PokeStops, PokeBalls, Potions and Revives to name a few. As you’d expect, with micro-transactions implemented in the game, the easiest way to get PokeCoins is by paying real world money for them. However, there are also ways to get free PokeCoins.
How To Get Free PokeCoins
In three words – Battling and Gyms
To maintain a steady stream of PokeCoins, what you would want to do is take over enemy gyms. This will see players battling the number of trainers stationed at the gym to defend it. The higher the prestige level of the gym, the higher the number of trainers you need to beat. Taking over a gym as a team is the preferred option here, as you would want as many trainers as possible defending it against attacks.
Leaving a Pokemon to defend the gym, not only enhances the ability to defend it, but also earns the player a daily “defender bonus” which lands 10 PokeCoins every 21 hours. Quick calculation gives 10×10=100 PokeCoins in 21 hours for defending ten gyms.
In conclusion, teamwork can’t be stressed enough. It is the key to free PokeCoins.
