Incenses (Japanese: おこう Incense) are a special class of held items that help Pokémon to breed differently. This allows Pokémon to produce Eggs containing baby Pokémon that were introduced beyond Generation II if the baby Pokémon was introduced after its evolutionary relatives.

Notably, most baby Pokémon which result from Incense breeding have different Egg Move lists than their evolved forms. For example, Azurill can learn Fake Tears through breeding while Marill cannot, and Marill can learn Aqua Jet through breeding while Azurill cannot.

Pokémon GO

Incense is an item in Pokémon GO that, upon activation, draws wild Pokémon towards the player at an accelerated rate for thirty minutes in real time. It spawns approximately one Pokémon every five minutes if standing still, or one Pokémon every minute if walking.

The player starts the game with two Incenses in their inventory and will obtain more at every fifth level starting at level 5, as well as at level 7. They can also be purchased with PokéCoins at the Shop.
