Stardust is essential in Pokémon GO for players to make their Pokémon more powerful and trade them with friends. See how to get more.

Of all the resources in Pokémon GO for players to collect, Stardust is one of the most important. While normally a useless item, only good for sale in mainline games, Stardust in Pokémon GO has many uses to help players get even stronger. Considering the importance of Stardust, there are many different ways for players to obtain it. Some methods are more fruitful in others, separating the clueless Pokemon GO players from the veterans.



The biggest use of Stardust is to increase the power and CP of players' Pokémon. This can only be done to a certain extent, which depends on the player's level. Other uses include being a currency to trade with other players, unlocking a second Charged Attack for certain Pokémon, and purifying Shadow Pokémon.

If players are trying to get as much Stardust as possible in one session, the best thing to do is use a Star Piece. This item increases the amount of Stardust players receive by 50% for 30 minutes after use. Players can obtain Star Pieces from various timed and special research tasks. Additionally, they can be purchased directly from the in-game Pokémon GO store.

The most common way to get Stardust is by just catching a Pokemon. A Basic Pokemon will give players 100 Stardust when caught, while an Evolved Pokemon will give players 300 Stardust. If a Pokémon is in its third evolutionary stage, it will give a base amount of 500 Stardust. All of these amounts are increased if the Pokémon is affected by increased weather, with the first stage giving 125, the second giving 375, and the third giving 625 if the weather conditions are right.


When a player catches their first Pokémon of the day, they receive an extra 1.800 Stardust. If players catch a Pokémon seven days in a row, this reward will increase to 9.000 on the seventh day before returning to the original 1.800.


More methods of collecting Stardust include hatching Pokémon eggs, completing Raid Battles, and opening gifts from friends. Completing field and special research tasks also provides players with Stardust rewards that can quickly increase.

Battle can also help players get more Stardust, with many Stardust rewards available in the GO Battle League. Defeating Team GO Rocket members also helps to provide good amounts of Stardust, depending on how powerful the enemy is. If players defeat a Team GO Rocket Grunt, they will receive 500 Stardust, a leader will give 1.000 Stardust, and Giovanni will give players 5.000 Stardust.
