How to Get a Golden Lure in Pokémon GO

Niantic, Pokémon Company

Players can now connect their Pokémon GO accounts to their Pokémon Scarlet and Violet save files in order to get a new item in Pokémon GO, the Golden Lure Module.

Official announcements for the game have stated that connecting the two games together will allow players to obtain a Golden Lure Module. What makes this Lure different from others is the ability to turn a Poké Stop golden, and when spun, will get players very good items, as well as Gimmighoul coins to get a Gholdengo, after collecting enough.

However, these Lures will act similarly to other Lures in one regard; they will only last 30 minutes. This means once used, players will have to make the most of these Golden Lures in order to keep collecting those rare items and Gimmighoul coins.

How to Get a Golden Lure in Pokémon GO

First, players will need to connect their Pokémon GO to their Pokémon Scarlet and/or Violet game, this can be done by:

  1. Opening Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
  2. Going to the Poké Portal and clicking Mystery Gift
  3. Pressing "Connect to Pokémon GO"
  4. Selecting the "pair with a Pokémon Go account" option

Then, they must conduct a similar set of steps on their Pokémon GO application, which is done by:

  1. Opening the Pokémon GO app
  2. Finding the settings
  3. Going to "Nintendo Switch" and selecting "Connect to Nintendo Switch"
  4. Press the "yes" button when prompted

After connecting the two games, players can send one Postcard to their Pokémon Scarlet and Violet files a day, and after sending five, they'll receive a Golden Lure Module in their Pokémon GO app.

The official announcement for the celebration of connecting the two games was made last month.
