Pokémon Go Coins is the game's premium currency to buy new items in the game - some you can get from regular play, and others such as permanent upgrades which exclusively from the shop.
There are two ways to get PokéCoins. One is through paying real-world money (the means of which the game is monitised) and the other is by interacting with Gyms.
With the substantial summer 2017 Gym rework, the way you earn and received Coins has changed - for the better and worse.
Pokémon Go Gyms are towering, spinning monuments found out in the wild, which can be captured from other Teams with gym battles, and defended by adding your own Pokémon to their roster. You'll need to join a Team to take part - you can join a team once your Trainer level hits 5 - and when you next interact with a Gym, Professor Willow invites you to join one of the game's three teams - Team Instinct, Team Mystic, or Team Valor.
The differences between the teams are purely cosmetic, but it's worth siding with the same team as a friend, allowing you to tackle Gyms easier. Once you have joined a team, you can help defend or challenge Gyms at your leisure.
Things have changed since Gyms first launched though; gone is the Prestige system and the 10 Pokémon limit, and in comes a new system focused on Motivation, some new items, and even some Gym Medals, too.
Once you've started collecting enough Pokémon, you'll want to turn your attention to evolving and Powering Up to discover new creatures and make them strong enough to defend and capture Gyms.

While Pokémon Go is at its core a very sociable game, it lacks the usual connected features - such as friends lists or leaderboards - you come to expect from a mobile game. There is, however, one way to show your Trainer to others, as depositing your Pokémon at a Gym displays nickname and Trainer's appearance for everyone nearby to see.
Once you have found your Pokémon - whether it was by finding the Pokémon Type by location, or from using the in-game radar or a tracker like Pokevision - you then have to then catch it inside a Pokéball.
Thanks to its immense popularity and the app still rolling out in new regions worldwide, Pokémon Go has had its share of server issues and server stability. Waves of new users can take its toll on the online-only game, seeing occasional bouts of server downtime and instability that presents users with error messages and crashes.
