The Daily Adventure Incense was introduced to Pokemon Go in July 2022. It works similarly to regular Incense, a tool used to lure Pokemon to your location, but with a unique twist. Adventure Incense attracts not only more Pokemon, but some of the coolest ones available.
Daily Adventure Incense works in a similar way to regular Incense in Pokémon Go, but with some key differences. When activated, Adventure Incense attracts Pokemon that you won’t normally see out in the wild. These Pokémon are more likely to appear near PokéStops, making it easier for trainers to catch them.
Adventure Incense can be used to increase the likelihood of encountering regional exclusive Pokémon, which are usually only available in specific parts of the world. Trainers who activate Adventure Incense will also have a chance to encounter Pokémon that are not typically found in their area, providing an exciting opportunity to catch new and unique creatures.
Another difference between Adventure Incense and regular Incense is that Adventure Incense has a shorter duration of 15 minutes (except during special events) instead of the regular Incense’s 60-minute duration. Although the adventure incense’s duration is significantly shorter than that of the regular incense, you can still catch a lot of awesome Pokemon that the regular incense typically will not attract.
The effects of Daily Adventure Incense can be amplified by walking around while the incense is active. This will attract more Pokemon to your location. Staying put in one place, like at home or a restaurant, will often not yield much spawns.
This feature was designed to entice players and trainers to go outside, to explore, and to interact with others. This helps trainers like me and you get in at least 15 minutes of walk time a day.
How Do I Get The Daily Adventure Incense?
It’s FREE. You simply have to log in every day and your Daily Adventure Incense will be available for use. You will see an icon for a blue colored incense to the right side of your screen. Simply tap it, and it will activate your Daily Adventure Incense.
If you do not use yours, it will not stack onto the following day. Rather, you are given one use per day and to only be used on that day.
Can I use the Daily Adventure Incense with Regular Incense?
Unfortunately, no. For the first week that the Daily Adventure Incense was introduced, you were able to stack the two. However, it is not believed that those were Niantic’s intentions, so it was quickly patched so that you could only use one or the other.
Rare Pokemon from Daily Adventure Incense
Aside from the higher level Pokemon that you will encounter, you can also some legendary Pokemon that you will not find anywhere else. These Pokemon include Galarian Articuno, Galarian Moltres, and Galarian Zapdos.
Although you won’t encounter them often, the more you use your Adventure Incense, the more you will begin to see them – and let me tell you, they are a sight to see.
They are very difficult to catch and will often run away after your first throw. Be sure to use your Golden Razzberries as well as Ultra Balls to give yourself the best chance of catching one of these rare birds.
It is said that they have a capture rate of 0.3% and an astronomically high flee rate of 90%.
To give yourself the best opportunity of catching one, use your Daily Adventure Incense daily and be sure to walk around when using it.
Other Notable Rare & Cool Pokemon
There are plenty of Pokemon you will find through using the Daily Adventure Incense. Here are some cool and strong ones that you may encounter:
These are just some of the possibilities with many more out there. So be sure to use your Adventure Incense every day to catch powerful and rare Pokemon. And perhaps if you’re lucky enough, one of the Galarian legendary birds.
I Don’t See My Daily Adventure Incense
If you don’t see your Daily Adventure Incense, sometimes simply restarting the game will bring the little icon back. This often happens if you stay logged in and a new day has started. If you do not want to restart your game, you can also go into your Item Bag and you should find your Adventure Incense there.
