The Mossy Lure is one of the many lures you can use in Pokémon Go. These are items you can place on a Poké Stop to bring over specific Pokémon to its location. If you’re hunting a particular type of Pokémon for an event, this is a must-have item that you want to make sure you use whenever possible. The mossy lure will attract Bug, Grass, and Poison-type Pokémon to your area. These lures are difficult to acquire, so we recommend making sure you know you want to use this item and you have a back-up in case you want to use another again in the future.

To use your mossy lure, click on the Poké Stop you want to use it on, and click at the top plus icon. It should look like the lure module icon. You’ll see a list of the lure modules you have in your inventory. You need to be in the range of the Poké Stop to use it.

It’s also important to note that when one player uses any of the lures, all players in the immediate area can take advantage of it. If you use a lure, your friend, and any other trainer who is nearby, you can also take advantage of it when in the vicinity of the Poké Stop the mossy lure was placed on.

You can also use the mossy lure to evolve your Eevee into a Leafeon. This is the only way to obtain Leafeon, the Grass-type evolution for Eevee. If you’re looking for a reliable Grass-type Pokémon in Pokémon Go, Leafeon is a decent choice. It won’t be stronger than a Venusaur or Tangrowth, but if you want a single type of every Eevee in your collection, that’s how you get it. We wouldn’t Leafeon as the best Eevee evolution, that would be Umbreon, but it’s not bad.

You can always obtain more lure modules by purchasing them in the Pokémon Go store for 200 Poké Coins.
