How to get PokéCoins after the latest update
This is how Coins work following the 2017 Gym rework:
- For every 10 minutes you have a Pokémon in the Gym, you gain 1 PokéCoin.
- Your earnings will be delivered to you automatically when your Pokémon has been removed from the Gym.
- There is a cap of 50 Coins per day you can receive across all Pokémon and Gyms.
Most Pokemon won’t last longer than 2-3 hours depending on your area, this is usually due to how many Players are around the town that actually use gyms. If your Pokémon has been in a Gym for several days (accruing more than 50 coins), they will only provide 50 coins in total when they come back to you. It also means that, if other Pokémon come back to you on that same day, you won’t receive any more Coins – as you’ve already hit the cap for that day.
