Star Pieces are a valuable item that every Pokemon Go player should have in their bags, but they are a scarce resource. Here’s a guide on how to get Star Pieces and how they work in Pokemon Go.

Star Pieces were introduced in Pokemon Gold and Silver as valuable items that players can sell for money. However, in Pokemon Go, they have an entirely different role. Star Pieces are items that will help boost your chances of obtaining Stardust in Pokemon Go.

Stardust is a key currency that helps you boost your Pokemon team’s power, trade Pokemon with your friends, and more. Therefore, farming Stardust is essential, especially when your Pokemon reach higher tiers and levels.

Here’s a guide on how to obtain Star Pieces and use them in Pokemon Go.

How to obtain Star Pieces in Pokemon Go

In Pokemon Go, Star Pieces can be obtained in certain circumstances, but you can also find them in the in-game store. These valuable items can be found as the final reward of most Researches, and the completion of Special Research Tasks.

For example, Step 6 of the From A to Zygarde Research grants players 1 Star Piece as a reward.

You can find Star Pieces for a price of 100 PokeCoins in the shop. You can also purchase a package that contains 8 Star Pieces for 640 PokeCoins. The maximum amount of this item you can carry in your bag is 200 units.

Always check if there are Box Offers before you purchase Star Piece bundles in the store.

Occasionally, Trainer Boxes can be found in the store, and they are special offers that contain several different items, including Star Pieces. They can be obtained that way too. For example, the Apprentice Box contains 1 Star Piece, 1 Lucky Egg, and 1 Poffin, for the price of 85 PokeCoins.

If you pay close attention to the store Box offers, you might get Star Pieces at a greatly discounted price, among several other useful items.

How to use Star Pieces in Pokemon Go

In Pokemon Go, Star Pieces activate a buff that increases the Stardust yield you obtain by 50% and lasts for 30 minutes upon activation. Like other buff items, you cannot stack its effect. You cannot activate another one to add time to the counter until the counter reaches 0.

To activate Star Pieces, follow these steps:

  1. Open your bag and browse until you find a Star Piece.
  2. Taping into it will close the bag and open the map screen.
  3. Tap again to drop the Star Piece and activate the buff. Remember, you have 30 minutes from its activation until the buff expires, so make good use of your time.

On certain occasions, like during Community Events, Star Pieces, and other buff items will last longer. So pay attention to those events to get the maximum benefit from your Star Pieces.
