Help Desk - My little birds dont bring Pokecoins to papa anymore

Ok, so i know that:

  • Theres a maximum 50 PokeCoins total for the day.
    (No matter how many pokemon return from a gym in a 24 hour period)

  • the rate is 1 coin every 10 minutes

  • there is a 1 hour defending minimum requirement to bring coins

  • the coins are integrated only when the defender pokemon returns

But the problem is that in the last 3 days I didnt recived coins, considering that I defended several gyms for long periods of time, with a bunch of pokemons, and not even a single one coin…
sooooooooo… there is a coin ban or something like that??? My app works perfectly, I can raid, get items, catch rare pokes, and no problem…

P.S.: I already notified the problem to niantic, and they answered me the information I already know: 50 coins cap and stuff…

Just check your journal. After the 0:00 you must have got 1 pĂłkemon back.
That one got the 50 coins. All the others (even if you got the 49 more back) won´t get you coins. Only after 23:59:59 of that day, when a gym is defeated, your pókemon will bring coins.


Your point no3 is false.
You dont need to defend for 1 hour to get coins. 10 minutes is enough to get 1.

And yeah do what @songohan says. Except its your news tab. Coins dont show up in the journal anymore.


Coins now show in the news tap, upper right hand corner

Did any Pokemon return home during the last 3 days? The answer to that question is the same answer to the question to if everything is working as intended.P.s this is the best topic name I’ve ever seen


I returned home so yes, @Pokemon returned home



Thanks, i didnt know that !

Well, thank you all for the help.
Yesterday, after a couple of days without having pokecoin returns, i get 50 …and today another 50. Aleluia. Thanks Mew1, Mapman42, Pokemon, songohan, Robdebobrob. I dont know if it was Niantinc, or the app that I re-installed or what… but problem solved for now!
