The Pokemon Go Shop sells various items, upgrades, boxes of bundled goods – even cosmetics. The prices and items themselves are always changing and you can find the updated list below.

How to earn and buy PokeCoins

Firstly, for those who don’t know, you can access by clicking the main menu (the PokeBall in the center) and then clicking shop. The amount of PokeCoins you have 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 rate of 100 per $1. They also become better value the more you buy, which is shown in the list below. North America have a better deal here though, as, for example, 550 PokeCoins cost $4.99 but also £4.99 in the UK. Sorry to break that to you, UK trainers.

Pokemon Go Money
Nintendo Life
You can just buy PokeCoins with real money…


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)

A Pokemon Sword & Shield cosplayer made waves on TikTok after sharing her mind-blowing transformation in Gen 8’s Water-type Gym Leader, Nessa.

The Pokemon franchise entered its eighth generation with the release of Sword & Shield on the Nintendo Switch. The 2019 RPG introduced players to a whole new cast of characters and was the debut of the Galar region.

A talented cosplayer celebrated the game by bringing popular character Nessa to life with an insanely accurate portrayal. The artist’s stunning video transformation into the Gym Leader will leave fans of the Water-type Trainer in awe.

The Sword & Shield Gym Leader has already become a fan-favorite.

Pokemon cosplayer transforms into Gym Leader Nessa

At the start of the Gen 8 title, the protagonist receives an invitation to the Pokemon League by reigning Champion Leon. On the player’s quest to become the very best, they face off against a host of new Gym Leaders – including Nessa of Hulbury.

Cosplayer ‘nerdtasticmel’ made a splash on Instagram after sharing her incredible true-to-life take on the Trainer. The artist faithfully recreated the heroine’s signature two-piece white and blue Galar league uniform.

Mel’s re-creation of the attire is full of little details, such as the water drop logo on her crop top and the number 049 on her swim shorts. She also faithfully included the character’s belly button chain accessory which wraps around her stomach.

Despite only releasing at the end of 2019, the eighth gen RPG is already the third-highest selling game in the entire franchise. Proof that Pokemon’s addicting “Gotta Catch ‘Em All” design is more popular than it’s ever been.

In October, the title got its second major DLC expansion, The Crown Tundra. While it’s unclear if the add-on will be the last content the Switch release gets, the update closed out the Galar region with an epic finale.
