Pokémon GO: Maya is the easiest way to get PokéCoins

There are a lot of perks in Pokémon GO that you’re going to miss if you’re making slow progress. While you can earn in-game coins by occupying and defending gyms, it can be an incredibly slow process too. Luckily, you can buy PokéCoins using Maya!




How to buy PokeCoins using Maya

App stores will require you to link a credit card to buy PokéCoins. If you don’t have a credit card, just use Maya.

1. Download the free Maya app on the Google Play Store/App Store.

2. Load up your account with P60 to cover the app store verification fee + the amount you need to buy the Pokecoins. (Read: How to reload my Maya account)

You can load up at any of the over 15,000 Maya reloading stations nationwide: SM Malls Business Centers, Robinson’s Department Stores, Bayad Centers, 7-Eleven stores with Cliqq kiosks, TouchPay Kiosks, Smart Padala Centers, and online banking via BDO.

3. Link your Maya virtual VISA account to your app store account. (Read: Getting to know my Maya details)

    a. Go to your Google Play account.

    c. Follow the onscreen instructions

    d. The new payment method will be added to your Google account.

4. Open Pokemon Go> Tap the Pokeball on your screen> Tap Shop

5. Buy PokeCoins to enjoy more of Pokemon Go!

Maya Tip: You can track your purchases with the Maya app so you can also manage your spending!

What you should buy with your PokéCoins

Here are some tips for those who are searching far and wide to be the very best:




1. Poke Balls: for those who don’t have a lot of PokeStops nearby or who end up using all their PokeBalls due to lack of aiming skills.

2. Lucky Egg: doubles your earned XP for about 30 minutes. Complaining about having a bunch of common Pokemon? The trick is to evolve as many of these as you can by using the respective candy for each. If you send the duplicates away, you’ll earn more candy, and more XP. Have your Lucky Egg active, and you can double that XP! (Recommended buy: Hard to find at Pokestops!)

3. Egg Incubator: your eggs will hatch according to the distance you accumulate when you walk with the game open. But sometimes you’ll play hours and hours, your egg inventory’s full, and you still won’t get a special 10km egg. Incubators will help eggs hatch quicker than usual, grant you that free Pokémon, and make you very happy.

4. Incense: this lures any nearby Pokémon to your location for as long as 30 minutes. This is best for people who want to get some action but are stuck in their office chairs, meetings, or inside the house on a rainy day. (Recommended buy: Hard to find at Pokestops! Best used with Lucky Egg!)

5. Bag Upgrade: very important! It increases the number of items you can carry for when you need to get a lot of Pokéballs.

6. Pokémon Storage Upgrade: also super important for catching all the Pokémon you need to store. The last thing you want is to come across a rare Pokémon and miss it because your storage is full!

Buying PokéCoins is now more convenient with Maya. Players can easily load up at any of the over 15,000 Maya reloading stations nationwide which includes SM Malls Business Centers, Robinson’s Department Stores, Bayad Centers, 7-Eleven stores with Cliqq kiosks, TouchPay Kiosks, and Smart Padala Centers, on top of online banking via BDO.

So what are you waiting for? Gotta Catch ‘Em All!
