The cost of PokeCoins is set to increase for Pokemon GO players in many regions. Here’s the full list of locations where the prices will be increasing.
PokeCoins are an integral part of Pokemon GO. Not only is spending PokeCoins the only way to increase your Pokemon Storage and Item Bag capacity, but you’ll also need to spend coins to get powerful items like Raid Passes and Lure Modules.
However, there are only two ways of getting PokeCoins in Pokemon GO. This is by placing your Pokemon in Gyms or by purchasing them with real-world money.
Unfortunately for many Pokemon GO players around the world, the cost of PokeCoins will be going up, starting on October 5!
Every Region With a Pokemon GO PokeCoin Price Increase
Starting on October 5, 2022, the price of PokeCoins in the following regions will be increased:
- Territories that use the Euro currency
- South Korea
At the moment, the exact prices of PokeCoins in these regions after the increase have not been revealed.
Following the increase in PokeCoin prices, there’s no better time to find out the fastest ways to earn PokeCoins in Pokemon GO.
Why is the PokeCoin Cost Rising?
The cost of PokeCoins in the above regions is rising because of a change in App Store price tiers. This is a global change that will affect many mobile games, not just Pokemon GO.
In response to the pricing changes in the App Store, Niantic Said:
“While we will not be taking any immediate action in response to this change, we’ll be monitoring its impact and discussing how to navigate changing conditions globally.”Niantic
Hopefully, for players in regions with a PokeCoin price increase, Niantic will find a solution to lessen the blow for Pokemon GO players.
This is the latest in a series of disappointments for Pokemon GO players this year. First, complaints flooded in following a huge nerf to Incense, and then Niantic made Remote Raid Passes much harder to get!
