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.

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))
