The coins are golden and they feature a picture of the profile side of a Pikachu.

Defender Bonus

See: Gym → Defender Bonus

Defender Bonus allows play to gather up to PokeCoin.png 50 free PokéCoins in a day for keeping Pokémon in Gyms.

The longer the Pokémon stay on the Gym, the more PokéCoins will be earned. For every 10 minutes a Pokémon occupies a gym, PokeCoin.png 1 will be added to the Trainers' potential defender bonus which is given to Trainer once Pokémon returns from the gym.

Daily Research
