Coins without gyms or money?

My friend claims that he got poké coins without buying them or attacking or defending a gym. All he does is catch pokemon, evolve them, and gather items.
Is this even possible?

Nope, you must buy them or defend gyms. That’s how it works buddy.

Does your friend tell lots of questionable stories?
That ones a beauty.

Don’t they give you some when you start playing the game? It’s been so long I can’t remember

Quite sure you start at 0 coins
