Hello fellow trainers!
If you have played the game for a while, you might have realized that items like Incense and incubators can get really costly. Sure, they are well-worth their price, but at its core, Pokemon GO is a free to play game. Here I’ll show you how to get the most out of game, without spending a single penny!
Be sure to stack up on any lucky eggs you get and don’t use them right away!
I’m able to collect 100 coins per day from gyms. You don’t need to be in a dominant team, just find a place where there are plenty of players of your color. You can actually collect the bonus every 21h, for a maximum of 200 coins per day. That’s a lot, isn’t it?
USE EACH INCUBATOR ONLY TWICE AND ONLY ON 5 OR 10k EGGS
By using each Incubator twice you will be left over time with a number of Incubators with one use each still left on them. Should you happen across a 10k egg, which is more common now, you’ll always have an Incubator ready to pop it into. But more importantly over time you will eventually have 8 Incubators with one use each left + the Infinite Incubator. When you do, you can then coordinate a mass evolution (with a Lucky Egg running) to take place while also hatching 9 eggs at once.
For players who spend money on the game hatching 9 eggs at once is not a big deal but for free players it’s almost impossible without proper planning and therefor even more important to do so with a Lucky Egg to maximize the XP. Ideally, my sequence will be Start Lucky Egg -> Seven Day Catch Streak Bonus -> Seven Day Pokestop Spin Bonus -> Beginning Evolutions (While Walking) -> 9 Eggs Hatch -> Finish Evolutions.
Doing this will generate much more XP over time than just hatching eggs at random. Furthermore, besides being both exhilarating and rewarding, it comes with the added benefit that if you happen to hatch something new out of the 9 eggs you will double the New Pokemon Bonus with the Lucky Egg. Some will argue that these bonuses are only a drop in the bucket when facing 1,500,000 XP to the next level. I argue that the only way to climb a mountain is one step at at time and these bonuses are like one extra step up.
