Pokemon Go: Orange Incense Explained
Why does Incense turn orange?
Incense is one of the most helpful tools in Pokemon Go, as it allows trainers to attract wild Pokemon to their current location for a limited time, regardless of where they may be in the real world. This means players who don’t live near PokeStops or Gyms can still catch Pokemon even if they never leave the house!
Typically, Incense is a mint green color. But at certain times, it turns orange. If you’ve ever wondered why this happens, here’s what you need to know.
Green Incense and orange Incense function in the same way: They both attract wild Pokemon to your location for a limited time. While green Incense has the potential to attract a wide variety of Pokemon to your location, orange Incense will only attract certain kinds of Pokemon during in-game events.
For instance, during Pokemon Go’s 2021 Kanto Celebration event, which is taking place from February 21 to February 27, 2021, Incense will attract a specific group of Pokemon from the Kanto region (Caterpie, Pidgey, Spearow, and Poliwag, among others). During this event, Incense is orange to indicate it will attract specific kinds of Pokemon.
If you ever see orange Incense in your inventory, that’s a good indication that an in-game event is currently taking place! You can learn more about Pokemon Go’s events by following us here at SuperParent, or by checking out the game’s Today menu.
