Pokemon Go has introduced a new type of Lure Module alongside the debut of Roaming Form Gimmighoul. The new Golden Lure has certain requirements to be obtained and works differently during events.

Pokemon Go players can now find Roaming Form Gimmighoul lurking in the mobile app. The debut of the new Paldea species comes alongside a curious new item: the Golden Lure Module. Unlike other Lures used in the game, this Module allows players to collect Gimmighoul coins when spun for a limited time.

How to use a Golden Lure in Pokemon Go

Players who have obtained and would like to activate a Golden Lure Module can do so by selecting the desired module while inside the ‘lure’ option of a PokeStop. Like standard PokeStops, these Lures last 30 minutes.

According to the PokemonGoLive website, these modules will drop more items than usual, alongside the Gimmighoul coins.

Golden Lure Modules do not get event bonuses

At this time, it does not appear that Golden Lure Modules will be extended to the three-hour duration of other Lures during events. According to a Twitter post shared by PokemonGoHub, Niantic has confirmed that for the upcoming event Festival of Colors, the special Lures will not get the bonus.

It is likely this also applies to Community Days and other in-game celebrations.
