How to Get Coins in Pokémon GO 2022

The best way to get coins by far in Pokémon GO is by taking over gyms. To do so, go to a gym that another team currently is controlling, and click the battle icon. Once you do that, make sure you bring your best team and battle all the Pokémon that are there. After you do that, you will have the opportunity to leave a Pokémon in that gym to defend it. That Pokémon there will earn you coins.

After that Pokémon gets knocked out of the gym you placed it in, you will get up to 50 coins from the time spent defending the gym. The amount of coins a Pokémon can earn maxes out after 8 hours. Additionally, you can only earn 50 coins per day, so if two Pokémon get knocked out of different gyms within the same day, you can only earn a maximum of 50 coins total between the two Pokémon.

You also do have the opportunity to buy coins with money from the store as well, but if you are an active player you should reach your coin goal in no time.
