Incense is the most useful tool in Pokemon Go that spawns Pokemons near the user’s locations for an hour.

Due to the effect of the incense, the users can catch one pokemon per minute or 200 meters if they are moving, and one pokemon every five minutes if they are standing still. 

Whenever you enable the incense feature you will see a pink-colored aura created around the trainer and the Pokemon who are lured by the incense. Users cannot obtain this powerful tool from a PokeStop rather they can get it after reaching certain levels or purchase them from the shop option available on the app in return for Pokecoins. Here you will find various options, you can choose the one according to the Pokecoins available with you, 80 Pokecoins for one incense, 500 Pokecoins for a set of 8, or 1250 Pokecoins for a pack of 25 incense sticks. 

Types of Incense

Niantic offers two types of Incense Sticks, i.e., Green and Orange. The job of both the incense is to attract Pokemon to the user’s location but, the Orange Incense attracts special or rare Pokemons.
