Rare candies in Pokémon GO are an important resource, used mainly to complete upgrades and for the evolution of the Pokémon.

They are often easy to find and there are various ways to do it, although most players find that they run out of candies faster than they want to and therefore are always in need of more.

If you’ve exhausted all the common hacks to find rare candies in Pokémon, Go, the following guide will share with you some of the additional options you may not know you have.

Use a GPS Changer

As you may already know, the easiest way to get candy is by hatching eggs and you can only hatch eggs by walking.

But sometimes, you just don’t have the time or energy to walk 5KM to get the rare candies you need. This is where a GPS spoofer can come in handy.

One of the best spoofing tools to use is MockGo. This tool allows you to pick a location or route on a map, set a specific speed and begin the simulated movement or teleport the device in a matter of minutes without having to jailbreak the device.

  • Choose a route for simulated walking so you can hatch eggs a lot faster
  • Teleport the device to any location with rare Pokémon to catch
  • Adjust the walking speed at any time to make the movement more natural and avoid a soft ban
  • Import GPX files to help pinpoint the locations with the best Pokémon and PokéStops
  • It is fully compatible with all apps that require GPS spoofing

Here’s how to use MockGo:

Step 1: Download and install the program on to your computer. Open it.

Step 2: Connect the iPhone to the computer and then click “Start” in the main window to begin the process.

Step 3: You will see a map appear on the screen with the current location of the device. If the location you see is not accurate, click on the “Center On” icon to get a more precise location.

You should also see a slider at the bottom that you can use to adjust the speed as desired. We recommend not exceeding a top speed of 10km/h.

Step 4: Click on the multi-spot icon and then enter the location you would like to use in the search bar. Select a location from the search results and the click “Search.”

Multi-stop mode

Step 5: Set a number of pins that will make up your simulated route and click “Move Here” in the popup that appears to begin the simulated movement. Click “Start” again when you’re ready to begin the movement.

Apply Game Accessories for Pokémon GO

There are a lot of Pokémon GO accessories that you could use to find rare candies. Poké Ball Plus and Pokémon GO Plus or even Go-Tcha are a few of the legitimate ones, even though Go-Tcha isn’t made by Nintendo.

But there are some accessories that are a little questionable. Step Counters is one that tries to capitalize on the Adventure Sync feature.

Players use it by shaking their phones for hours at a time, tricking Adventure Sync into thinking that the player has taken 8000 to 10,000 steps every hour.

You should also be on the lookout for countless Pokémon GO Plus knockoffs that claim to offer you better battery life, better connectivity or even allow you to manage more than one account at the same time.

You should be very careful of these devices, but according to their reviews some of them seem to work just as well as the official ones.

Engage in the Raid Battles

The easiest way to get rare candy in Pokémon GO is by defeating a raid boss. But getting rare candy from a raid battle is not always guaranteed, although the number of rare candy that you can get from a single battle can rage from 0 -12.

You therefore, might want to participate in raid battles as often as you can to get rare candy.

The game will provide Trainers with a free raid pass once every day, as long as the player spins for items at the Gym.

The most difficult raid battles give out more rare candies.

Make the Most of a Candy Event

Another way to get rare candies in Pokémon GO is to make the most of candy events. Pokémon GO events are quite common and happen almost every week.

They are advantageous in that they offer a lot of rewards including rare candy. You can choose the events you would like to participate in at any given time.

But since it can be very hard to figure out when these events are taking place, it is necessary to find a good source of information, one that provides details on upcoming Pokémon GO events so you can be better prepared.

1. Can You Buy Rare Candy in Pokémon GO?

No. Rare candies are not an item that can be purchased in Pokémon GO. The only way to get then is to get the premium raid passes and then win battle raids.

Unlike other items, rare candies are not available for purchase in the Pokémon GO shop.

2. How to Use Rare Candy?

Once you have your rare Candy, here’s how you can use it:

  • Step 1: Tap on the “Menu” item in the game (it looks like a Poké Ball)
  • Step 2: Tap on “Items” and then scroll down to find “Rare Candy.”
  • Step 3: Look for the Pokémon that you want to use the rare candy on
  • Step 4: Click on “+” or “-“ button to adjust the number of rare candies you want to use.
  • Step 5: Tap “Yes” to transfer the candies.

3. When Should I Use Rare Candy in Pokémon GO?

This will depend on how you play the game. If you raid a lot, bringing in over 100 rare candies a week, then you always want to have the top counters for every Legendary Raid Boss.

In this case, you may want to find a resource that provides detailed information on raids and offers guides on how to make the most of a particular raid.


Every Pokémon GO player requires a little bit of help every now and then. It is our hope that you can put all the information in this guide to good use and get all the rare candy that you need to progress in the game.

To hatch eggs more quickly, consider using a spoofing tool like MockGo. But the only way to get rare candies is to participate in as many raids as you can.
