If you are an avid Pokémon Go player, you know how great lures can be when posted up at a stop. Lures draw in Pokémon approximately every five minutes and can be a great way to bolster your stardust count or possibly find a shiny. But what about special lures? What makes them actually special? What can each of them spawn?
In Pokémon Go there are a variety of special lures that players can use to spawn specific types of Pokémon. This can be great if you are hunting a certain Pokémon or just bored with the current pool of local spawns in your area.
Additionally, special lures are important for another reason. Specific lures are sometimes required to evolve Pokémon. In these instances, players must place a special lure on a PokéStop and then evolve the Pokémon while in range of the stop.
Ok, now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s discuss what each special lure does in Pokémon Go.
What types of special lures are available in Pokémon Go?
When it comes to special lures in Pokémon Go, players have the option of four different lures. There are Glacial, Mossy, Magnetic, and Rainy lures.
Each of these will cause different types of Pokémon to spawn. If you want to know the spawn pools, keep reading below.
