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 you can 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.

How to earn and buy PokeCoins

You can access the store by clicking the main menu (the PokeBall in the center) and then clicking shop. The amount of PokeCoins you have available to spend is shown at the very top.

PokeCoins can be earned by defending gyms. You can one PokeCoin for every 10 minutes you are defending one, 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.

Special offers – Limited time only boxes

There are always limited only boxes in the Pokemon Go Shop. There are several items that you can buy in one box, which work out a lot cheaper than buying them individually.

You can just buy PokeCoins with real money…

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:

      • 550 PokeCoins – $4.99 (£4.99)
