While there is such a lot being written and reviewed about Pokémon go, and how the easily downloadable on the android as well as iOS platforms pseudo reality game has managed to keep millions of subscribers hooked on.
The game has also received much flak with regards to the need for making several in-app purchases to gain pokecoins.
Probably, what has been missed is the fact that you can actually acquire pokecoins, without having to pay for it.
All you need to do is place a Pokémon through hack from your collection, at a gym and have him defend the gym. What’s more, you don’t have to be any kind of a gym leader or something. You only have to assign one Pokémon from your troupe to stand guard.
Once you have put one of your Pokémon on duty, you can proceed to your shop page. Here, on the top right hand corner, you can view a shield with a number. This number is an indicator of how many of your Pokémon are at gyms, standing in defense. You tap on this, and a timer for 21hours gets activated. 21 hours is the time frame for redemption.
What’s more, you also have bonus features such as 10 pokecoins for every Pokémon assigned up to 10. Which implies, you can actually earn 100 poke coins every 21hours.
Turns out, not such an expensive option at all. Quite a sensible way to gain unlimited poke coins, of course a little time consuming.
