Is incense working for everyone?

    I don't know if this is me not using incense properly, or some recent update has caused the issue, but every time I decide to use an incense I end up not seeing any incense spawned pokemon.

    I'm not activating it in the middle of who knows where, but in the centre of town; just to maximise the potential amount of pokemon spawns while I have a stardust going too.

    Has anyone noticed/has this an issue?

    I had to wait every five minutes before a Pokémon showed up.

    I believe there is currently a glitch where incense spawned Pokémon don't have the pink cloud swirling around them. I know that was a thing a couple months ago, but I haven't checked recently. If it is still the case, then anything spawned by incense would just look like a regular spawn.

    i've noticed this too ! not only am i not seeing pink clouds, pokes are spawning very rarely (sometimes not at all). i've just started playing again this past week, so i probably missed an update or two affecting it. maybe this is pretty normal ?

    Ran into this too. It seems as if Pokemon don't spawn that often during it. It's a bit frustrating sometimes.

    Does Incense only work if you are walking?

    It works either if you're walking or not. But while walking makes Incense more effective. If you are standing still, Incense provides a Pokémon to spawn near you every five minutes. If you are walking, however, Incense provides a Pokémon to spawn near you every minute.

    Maybe that's just a minor issue with the Pokemon. Because in the process of seeing the Pokemon appear more, lay more eggs but sometimes not.

    I had this same issue recently. Found a reddit post that pointed me to the Time/Date function on my phone.
    If it is not set to AUTO, some of the functions (such as Incense) don't work correctly.
    Make sure you Date/Time is set to auto and hopefully this will sort the issue for you too.
