How to get special items in Pokémon GO

The six special in-game items can be achieved in the same way, so there is no way to search for a specific item. If you need an Up Grade, for example, you should try the shapes listed below until the item appears.


Although it is the standard way to get special items, it is also the most difficult. It is possible to get special items from PokeStops, but the odds are very low, so many players don't even know it's possible. Generally, you will need to visit MANY PokeStops to get a special item, unless you are very lucky.

Weekly Rewards

The safest way to get special items. If you visit PokeStops every day for a week, you will receive a reward containing a special guaranteed item.


Gifts have a chance, however small, to contain special items. Try to exchange them with friends whenever possible.

Field research

Completing field searches can also yield special items. Keep an eye on each one's reward list for your desired items.

Coach battles

Coach battles offer rewards that may contain special items. Battles against other players can yield up to three rewards per day, while dueling against non-player characters (NPCs ) is limited to one reward per day.
