It may have been months since Pokémon GO hit iOS and Android devices across the globe, but the fever is subsiding any soon. If you are already hooked to catch them all, you will soon find yourself the need to get free PokeCoins in Pokémon GO.

While you can always show some love to the developers and buy PokeCoins with in-app purchases, but that can get expensive. There are plenty of shady websites online that offer a way to get free PokeCoins and buy all the stuff you need to be the very best at Pokémon GO.

DID YOU KNOW: Updato offers seamless and guaranteed phone unlocking for any device, carrier and region! It's quick and easy - try it now.

Note: Earning free PokeCoins is directly related to using the gyms around you to earn some rewards. However, you will need to reach level 5 in Pokémon GO to start earning free PokeCoins.

Method 1: Raise the prestige level at a friendly gym

Once you have reached level 5 in Pokémon GO, you can start using the friendly gyms from your team around you. Not only can you practice and challenge fellow teammates, you can also use your Pokémon to guard the gym and get free PokeCoins in return.

By protecting the friendly gym, you can raise the prestige level to get free PokeCoins, but you will have to leave your Pokémon there. The higher the level of your friendly gym, the same number of Pokémon you can leave there to earn even more PokeCoins.

Method 2: Defeat and secure an enemy gym

If the idea of waiting to get free PokeCoins seems to boring, you can always put your Pokémon to the test and defeat enemy gyms. By taking down a gym that belongs to your rival team, you can then defend that gym against future attacks to earn PokeCoins.

If you choose to defeat and secure an enemy gym for some sweet PokeCoins, start off with the easy ones. A gym with low prestige level will always be easier to take over and have fewer Pokémon for you to fight and defeat.
