Pokemon GO Magnetic Lure Guide: Where and How To Find Them?
In-game purchase using real currency
You can purchase the item from the in-game shop for 180-200 Pokecoins. The in-game currency can be bought with real-world currency. You can purchase 100 coins for $0.99, so your total purchase would cost you just under $2. However, the price to pay for evolving a single Pokémon may seem too much overtime if one makes the purchase with real-world currency.
Controlling the gyms to earn coins
There is an alternative method to obtain the Magnetic lures without using real money. Although it may take some time to collect the coins, it is completely worth waiting for. You can earn coins for free by controlling gyms. For that the trainers who control the gym has to be defeated. Once that is done, you can place your own Pokémon there to defend it. Trainers can earn six coins per hour and up to 50 a day through this method. So you need to maintain a gym for at least 4 to 5 days without fail to earn the amount of coins required to buy the Magnetic Lure.
Special research task
You can also get this lure by participating in the Jirachi special research task ‘A Thousand-Year Slumber’. This special task consists of grinding through the challenges to catch Jirachi which is a mythical Pokémon and can only be caught by completing a seven stage set of challenges.
