Trainers, New ways to earn PokeCoins is coming in Pokemon GO. This new method is currently being rolled out and tested in a specific area. Currently, it is being tested in Australia.

Here’s the official statement from Niantic:

Right now, the only way to earn PokéCoins is to defend Gyms. But since Pokémon GO’s release, we’ve added features that have vastly changed the way you play. In addition, with more Trainers playing at home, we’re looking to provide more ways for you to earn PokéCoins while playing in one place. So, in the future, we’ll be rewarding you with PokéCoins for activities besides defending Gyms. We’ll soon be testing this update only with Trainers in Australia, and it’ll be coming to all Trainers after this testing phase.


Along with this Niantic is also going to increase the daily limit of earning coins from 50 coins to 55 coins per day.

Here are some of the daily activities you might see in Today’s view once the feature goes live.

  • Make an Excellent Throw
  • Make a Great Throw
  • Evolve a Pokémon
  • Use a Berry to help catch a Pokémon
  • Take a snapshot of your buddy
  • Make a Nice Throw
  • Catch a Pokémon
  • Transfer a Pokémon
  • Win a raid

You can earn 5 PokéCoins total after completing all the featured activities for the day!

To balance out the new method of earning PokeCoins there will be a reduction to the number of coins earned from defending gyms- Right now you can earn 6 coins per hour. Once this feature is live, the number will be reduced to 2 coins per hour.
