How to get Golden Lures in Pokémon GO

Ooh, shiny!

Pokémon GO fans have a lot to look forward to with the game's latest feature: connectivity with Pokémon Scarlet and Violet and the Nintendo Switch. This exciting development opens up a whole new world of possibilities for players, including the appearance of Golden PokéStops and the elusive Gimmighoul. Gimmighoul was introduced in Violet and Scarlet as Pokémon 999, followed by its evolution, Gholdengo. With the new Golden PokéStops comes the chance to collect Gimmighoul Coins, a currency that can unlock rare and valuable items in the game. But to find these special PokéStops, players must first acquire Golden Lures.

Where to find golden lures in Pokemon GO

Golden Lures are essential for any serious Pokémon GO player looking to catch Gimmighoul and collect Gimmighoul Coins. These lures can turn regular PokéStops into Golden ones, making them prime locations for collecting these elusive coins.

But how do you get your hands on Golden Lure? The only confirmed way to obtain them is by connecting Pokémon GO with Scarlet or Violet and sending postcards through this connectivity. The more postcards you send, the more Golden Lures you'll receive.

It's worth noting that the first time you send a postcard, you'll receive a Coin Bag instead of a Golden Lure But after that, you'll start receiving these valuable items, making it well worth the effort to collect and send postcards.
