New or returning players jumping into the world of Pokemon Go are going to need a tonne of items to aid them on their journey through the real world to catch ’em all. Here, you’ll find all of the current items such as Lures, Boxes, and Remote Raid Passes to get your hands on as you venture out to fill up your Pokedex.

The Pokemon Go game shop sells various items, upgrades, boxes of bundled goods – even cosmetics. The store is often updated, with new items being added to boxes to offer players fantastic deals to add into their arsenal.

Pokemon Go shop upgrades

Upgrades are different from items, whereby you retain the benefit of them consistently, going forward. There are currently three upgrades in Pokemon Go which are as follows:

Item Cost (in PokeCoins) What it does
Item Bag 200 Permanently increases the maximum number of items you can carry by 50.
Pokemon Storage 200 Increases the maximum number of Pokemon you can store by 50.
Team Medallion 1,000 Allows you to change team (Instinct, Mystic or Valor) – can only be purchased once every 365 days

How to earn and buy PokeCoins

Before you buy anything from the shop, though, you’ll need PokeCoins. These can be earned in-game, for free, by defending gyms. You earn one PokeCoin for every 10 minutes you are defending it, at a maximum rate of 50 in a 24 hour period.

They can also be purchased at a rate of 100 per $1. They also become better value the more you buy, which is shown in the list below. North America has a better deal here, though, as 550 PokeCoins cost $4.99, but also £4.99 in the UK.

The “Limited Time Only” boxes are frequently changing.

How to access the Pokemon Go shop

You can access the store by clicking the main menu, which is the PokeBall in the bottom-center of your screen, and then clicking shop. The amount of PokeCoins you have available to spend is shown at the very top, displayed in the image above.

How much do PokeCoins cost?

To buy any of the above you need PokeCoins. These are in the in-game currency for the Pokemon Go Shop.

You can currently only earn these in the game by defending gyms and even when doing that it can be time-consuming to build up a large stash. Alternatively, you can buy them with real money, though. Let’s take a look at the cost:


      • 100 PokeCoins – $0.99 (£0.79)
      • 550 PokeCoins – $4.99 (£4.99)
      • 1,200 PokeCoins – $9.99 (£9.99)
      • 2,500 PokeCoins – $19.99 (£19.99)
      • 5,200 PokeCoins – $39.99 (£38.99)
      • 14,500 PokeCoins – $99.99 (£99.99)

*All prices have been obtained directly from the Pokemon Go app. 

There you have it – everything in the Pokemon Go shop for August 2021.  This page will be updated as and when prices change or new items arrive in the shop.
