In Pokemon Go, Stardust is one of the most valuable assets out there. This in-game currency is used to help level up your Pokemon, but it’s not especially easy to come by. Equally, you can’t buy it, like you can with coins. As such, we’re here to show you how to get Stardust quickly and easily.
How to Get Stardust in Pokemon Go
Getting Stardust in Pokemon Go is quite an easy feat. To get it, all you need to do is catch a Pokemon. Depending on its Combat Power level and the current weather, you can get varying amounts of Stardust.
Yes, earning this resource really is as simple as throwing Pokeballs to catch Pokemon. That’s the base way to get it, but generally, the amounts of Stardust are quite low, just for catching. If you use a Star Piece item, that will double the amount of Stardust you earn for a half-hour period.
You can also earn Stardust in a few other ways. You’ll get it from hatching Pokemon, participating in battles, opening gifts, and completing research. It’s also available by fighting Team GO Rocket members, like the leaders and Giovanni. These boss battles unsurprisingly garner the highest amount of rewards, but equally are toughest. As you can see, there are so many ways to get Stardust, meaning you’ll end up saving up tens of thousands just through playing the game.
You’ll then have plenty to spend on upgrading your Pokemon’s Combat Power. It generally costs quite a lot to get your Pokemon to their max CP, so it’s important to save up. However, if you have plenty in your inventory, you’ll be able to get your team to their maximum possible CP, and will likely win more battles, too.
