They can also be purchased at a rate of 100 per $1, becoming better value the more that you buy. In North America, 550 PokeCoins cost $4.99, while in the UK the same amount currently costs £4.49.

How to access the Pokemon Go Shop

You can access the store by selecting the main menu, which is the PokeBall in the bottom-center of your screen, and then choosing ‘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?

Before being able to buy the items listed above, you’ll need PokeCoins. These are in the in-game currency for the Pokemon Go Shop.

As mentioned earlier, you can currently only earn these in the game by defending gyms, which can be time-consuming when trying to build up a large stash. Alternatively, you can buy them with real money. Let’s take a look at the cost:
