How to prepare for Incense Day in Pokémon Go

If you plan to participate in Incense Day in Pokémon Go, you should make sure you are prepared for it.

First things first: you need to make sure you actually have incense. If you don’t, you can easily purchase them from the in-game store or earn them by completing special research tasks, such as Let’s Go Meltan.

Having a lucky egg or two to double your XP is also a good idea, especially if you plan on catching a lot of Pokémon.

Lastly, you should also make sure you are stocked up on Poké Balls and berries of all varieties. The worst thing that can happen to you on Incense Day is that when that rare Pokémon you’ve been hunting shows up, you discover that you’re out of Poké Balls.
