Pokémon GO is a free to play game for iOS and Android mobiles that allows us to play without spending real money, although it also offers micropayments in exchange for the so-called Pokecoins, the virtual currency of the game, so that we can accelerate certain game mechanics or acquire all kinds of objects that will help us in our games, from Pokéballs to Potions or Incubators, as well as expand our Pokémon storage space, among many other advantages. But is it possible to purchase free coins in Pokémon GO? Here’s all about Pokecoins and how to get free coins in Pokémon GO.
What are Pokecoins?
Pokémon GO coins or Pokecoins represent the virtual currency of the Niantic game and can be obtained in two different ways. The fastest way is through the video game store itself in exchange for real money; the second way is by interacting with the Gyms that you’ll find on the streets while you play.

How to get free coins in Pokémon GO
The only valid and legal method to get free Pokecoins in Pokémon GO is through the Gyms that you will find on the streets, specific places to fight with your Pokémon and that we can only access from level 5.
To get free coins in the Gyms we must leave one of our Pokémon there; we’ll get 1 free coin for every 10 minutes our Pokémon can hold in a Gym. With this method, we can get a maximum of 50 coins per day, that is, it will be of no use placing stacks of Pokémon in several Gyms to get more than 50 coins per day.
As we said, the maximum number of Pokécoins you can get in a single day will be 50; We recommend leaving our best Pokémon in several Gyms to recover them periodically while getting coins.
In this sense, if we want to obtain large amounts of coins in a short time (remember, 50 coins maximum per day), we must locate between 5 and 10 gyms distant from each other and little crowds of medium difficulty and leave our best Pokémon defending them, better if they are creatures with great defensive attributes like Snorlax, Umbreon, Vaporeon, Lapras or Blissey, for example; We also recommend taking gyms at unusual times, eitherat night or during business or school hours.
Thanks to these tips you can get a good handful of Pokémonedas in no time and without great effort.
Alert! Don’t use hacks to get free coins
There are many hacks that assure us a good amount of free coins for Pokémon GO; don’t use them, they are fake and in case it works, you risk being banned forever from Pokémon GO.
Such “miraculous” websites, applications, and files are nothing more than scams to obtain our sensitive personal information; If we accept any kind of hack we risk being scammed (for example via spam-type SMS that will take money from our mobile balance for every message received). On the other hand, such hacks are usually accompanied by malicious applications that will try to access our data stored on our terminal. Avoid such fraudulent solutions at all costs.
