A PokéCoin

PokéCoins (Japanese: ポケコイン PokéCoin) are the in-app currency used in Pokémon GO. There are two ways of obtaining PokéCoins: the Defender bonus from a Gym, or by purchasing them with real money.

PokéCoins can be redeemed for several different kinds of items and upgrades in the Shop or for clothing in the style menu.

Defender bonus

When the defender is knocked out of a gym, the player will receive PokéCoins, the formula below is being used to calculate how PokéCoins are gained:

PokéCoins=min(50 , 50 - PokéCoins_earned_today , floor(minutes_defended / 10))

As seen in the formula, a player can only earn up to PokéCoin.png50 per day. Calculations towards the daily limit apply to the day the defender Pokémon is knocked out of the gym, not the day it was put in. If a Pokémon was placed in the Gym on Monday night, and it was knocked out Tuesday morning, the PokéCoins earned will count towards Tuesday's daily limit.
