There is a Pokestop near me with a lure module periodically available from another player. If I were to go there, and then activate an incense would that improve the amount of Pokemon that I see?

Incense and Lure Modules will stack to increase the effect rate of that area.

However, the Incense will only benefit you and not other players.

    Another answer contradicts this. Do you have research/evidence to support this claim? Jul 9, 2016 at 1:43
  • Beta and actual gameplay.

    @AnthonyStringer I guess gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/272681/… is the answer that contradicts it? I assume the answerer didn't take into account using an incense. I commented on the answer to ask for clarification

    @Andrew Multiple lures do stack, but they can't be on the same PokeStop.

I asked my friend this, and he says he's confirmed that lures and incense stack with actual gameplay -- he continues to do it, and he's gotten a lot of good Pokémon.
