Gimmighoul’s debut in Pokemon GO took place on February 27, 2023, marking the platform’s link with Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. Players connected their Poke GO accounts to the latest two titles to make the creature appear, just like they obtained Meltan by connecting to Let’s Go.

Trainers can now find a new item called the Golden Lure Module, which allows them to collect Gimmighoul coins when spun for a limited time. It is a PokeStop component that turns any Stop into gold and rewards players with the resource for each Photo Disc spin. The Golden Lure Module also increases the chance of encountering Roaming Form Gimmighoul. For more information on how to get and use it, read below.

Pokemon GO guide: Steps to get a Golden Lure Module in 2023

Many players are currently looking for the item as it provides Gimmighoul Coins and fortifies the probability of encountering the Roaming Form Gimmighoul. This is a huge boost for collectors looking to complete their Pokedex. While that is the case, getting a Golden Lure Module is not a hard task, but it does demand consistency.

If trainers send five Postcards from Pokemon GO to Scarlet or Violet on Nintendo Switch, they can receive a Golden Lure Module as a fifth-day bonus. This reward is given to those who send multiple Postcards to Scarlet or Violet players, mostly developed to promote both games. While one might think there is more to it, that is all it takes to acquire this amazing item.

The usage and effects of Golden Lure Module in Pokemon GO 2023

To activate a Golden Lure Module on a PokeStop, drag and drop it onto the Stop. Once activated, spin the Photo Disc every five minutes to receive prizes. Essentially, it transforms the location into a Gimmighoul Coin vending machine for a period of 30 minutes.

Gimmighoul Coins are earned in sets of five, while a Golden Lure Module can be spun up to six times but cannot be stacked. The Module attracts regular wild Pokemon for a 30-minute duration during the Festival of Colors event and does not attract Shiny ones. Trainers can earn Gimmighoul Coins by spinning other players’ Golden PokeStops.

That’s all for the Golden Lure Modules in Pokemon GO. Seize the opportunity to catch ’em all. Are you prepared for the latest season, Season 10: Rising Heroes?
