Pokémon Go Coins – How to get free daily PokéCoins from Gyms

Pokémon Go Coins are the premium in-game currency for purchasing new in-game items and upgrades.

Although you can earn many consumable items by playing regularly, some things, such as clothing items for your Trainer and permanent storage upgrades, are only possible by acquiring Pokémon Go Coins.

There are two ways to get PokéCoins. One is by paying real-world money (means by which the game is monitored) and the other is by interacting with gyms.

In May 2020, it was announced that there would be changes to the way PokéCoins would be earned: giving them out for completing activities and defending gyms daily. This has seen several updates throughout the year as it was rolled out to more regions, before being canceled in October 2020, meaning Gyms are currently the only way to get coins for free.

How to get free PokéCoins in Pokémon Go

To get PokéCoins without paying real-world money, you must interact with Gyms, which are available starting at Trainer level 5.

These are towering, rotating monuments (not to be confused with regular PokéStops) that one of the game’s three teams can take over and defend by placing Pokémon inside them.

Since 2017, this is how the Gym defense works:

  • You earn six PokéCoins per hour by defending a Gym (at a rate of 1 PokéCoin every 10 minutes).
  • There is a limit of 50 coins per day, regardless of which gyms you defend.
  • Your winnings will come to you automatically when your Pokémon has been eliminated from the Gym. If your Pokémon remains in the Gym at the end of the day, you will not earn PokéCoins.

This is different from how gyms worked in the first year of the game, where placing a Pokémon in a gym would give you a flat rate of 10 coins per creature (with a 21-hour cooldown every time you cashed out), so which, in theory, you can now easily earn 50 PokéCoins in the same period.

Of course, you can pay if you prefer not to mess with gyms at all…

In short, the longer your Pokémon is in a Gym, the more PokéCoins you will earn. However, you can only earn a maximum of 50 PokéCoins per day, even if all Pokémon are eliminated from all Gyms you are defending at once.

Additionally, if your Pokémon has been in a gym for several days, it will only give you 50 coins total when it returns to you. This also means that if other Pokémon return to you that same day, you will not receive any more Coins since you have already reached the limit for that day.

As such, it’s probably best to have your Pokémon return from gyms on a regular, staggered basis, rather than over long periods all at once to maximize your gains.

It’s also worth noting that you can only have one of your Pokémon in a Gym at a time. Although you can still have Pokémon in multiple Gyms, there is a limit of 20 Gyms in which you can place creatures.

How the Pokémon Go Coins update was supposed to work

In May 2020, Niantic announced that earning PokéCoins will be adjusted to stop defending gyms and move on to other activities. This was modified again in June and August 2020 in response to community feedback and general testing, before being canceled in October 2020, reverting to the existing gym system.

“We appreciate Trainers’ participation in the test and will continue to look for ways to improve how players can earn PokéCoins,” Niantic said.

So how did it work? The following ways to obtain coins were tested in Australia, Germany, New Zealand and Taiwan as part of an initial phase, before being discarded. It is unknown if Niantic will accept some of these for possible renewal in the future, but for now, gyms remain the only way to earn free in-game coins:

  • The limit on the amount of free PokéCoins you can earn is 50 per day (initial testing raised this to 55 per day).
  • There is a limit on the number of PokéCoins you can earn from various sources: 30 from Gyms per day, 20 from Featured Activities per day.
  • PokéCoins earned from defending Gyms will remain at six PokéCoins per hour (up from two per hour in previous testing).
  • Featured activities include:
    • Make a great pitch
    • Evolve a Pokémon
    • Make a great pitch
    • Use a berry to help catch a Pokémon
    • Take a snapshot of your friend
    • catch a pokemon
    • Power up a Pokémon
    • Make a good throw
    • Transfer a Pokémon
    • Win a raid
    • Tasks related to Team Go Rocket

To clarify how this worked, you could still earn PokéCoins by defending Gyms like before, but they were capped at 30 per day instead of 50 currently. From there, you can increase your daily total of PokéCoins by completing featured activities, up to a total of 20.

This was better than when the coin changed the first limit (which significantly slowed down the gym’s profits). Ultimately, the goal seemed to be to diversify the source of PokéCoins for players, giving them more freedom depending on their circumstances (useful for those not near gyms, for example), but for some reason, Niantic has scrapped the system.

The Season of Adventure Abundance is here! The Detective Pikachu Returns event is currently underway. You can also work on the Timed Investigation: Master Ball mission and compete in Go Battle League. Be sure to compete in Shadow Raids, complete routes, use Daily Adventure Incense for a chance to encounter Galarian Articuno, Galarian Zapdos, and Galarian Moltres. This incense can also give you encounters with other rare Pokémon in Pokémon Go.
