Pokemon GO: How to Use Lucky Eggs, Lure Modules, and Incense Efficiently

Have you been playing Pokemon GO recently just like everyone else? If yes, then you must have definitely been in situations when you cannot walk around but still want to play the game. If you want to sit in one place and want to catch Pokemon, then you should use various items like Incense, Lucky Eggs, Lure Modules, etc. In this post, we are going to tell you how to efficiently use these items to their full capabilities.

Let’s talk about Incense first. This item, when used, attracts Pokemon to your location for 30 minutes. The Pokemon spawn near you even if you do not walk. So you can expect to get around 5-6 Pokemon when you use an Incense. But you should remember that unstable servers will only waste your Incense. For instance, if the servers go down within a couple of minutes of you activating Incense, you will lose the remain minutes. So use Incense only when you are sure that the servers are stable.

Lure Modules are similar to Incense and attract Pokemon. However, unlike Incense that attracts Pokemon to your location, a Lure Module has to be placed at a PokeStop. When activated, the Lure Module will lure Pokemon to only that particular PokeStop for 30 minutes. So even if you leave within a few minutes, other players can benefit from your Lure Module. Similarly, you can get lucky if a generous player leaves a few minutes of Lure Module at a PokeStop you reached.

Coming to Lucky Eggs, these are the special items that help you gain double the XP for 30 minutes. You only get a few free Lucky Eggs and the rest you either need to buy from the in-game shop or win as rewards after gym battles. When used, Lucky Eggs boost the XP that you earn for a period of half an hour. The timer will keep running even if you are not playing, so make sure you use every second of that time.

How to Use Incense, Lucky Eggs, and Lure Modules Very Efficiently?

Here’s the best way to utilize the special items in Pokemon GO to their full potential:

  1. Look at the map and go to an area that has got a lot of PokeStops nearby.
  2. Then activate an Incense. If you are going to use a Lure Module, make sure you stay on that PokeStop for full 30 minutes.
  3. After activating the Lure Module or Incense, also activate a Lucky Egg immediately.
  4. Now start catching Pokemon.

If you follow this method, you will catch a larger number of Pokemon and will earn double the XP in the process. Those 30 minutes will be very beneficial as they will earn you lots and lots of XP that will further help you level up and progress in the game.
