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.

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