Pokémon Incense

The Pokémon Incense is a kind of incense used to attract Pokémon. Pokémon incenses have a specific Pokémon that it can attract, as indicated by its name and sprite. When used, a Pokémon incense will lure the Pokémon to Snorlax's side, regardless of the player's sleep style. A Pokémon incense cannot be used if the Pokémon does not appear in the area (for example, a Pikachu Incense cannot be used in Taupe Hollow, as Pikachu does not appear there).

Pokémon incenses cannot be bought, and are only obtainable by completing weekly missions. All Pokémon incenses are named "<Pokémon> Incense" and share the following item description:

The appearance of Pokémon incenses match the type of the Pokémon it lures, as follows.
