What Are Pokemon Go Levels?

Like in other role-playing games Pokemon Go trainers must level-up their avatar. By leveling-up, users are able to catch more destructive and highly evolved Pokemon to use in battle. In order to level-up, a player must collect the number of experience points (XP) stated on the player information screen (pictured). Trainers gather XP by completing tasks within the game. Tasks that receive an XP reward include battling at gyms, visiting PokeStops and evolving or catching a Pokemon. For almost every new level the player reaches, a cache of items is received for their troubles.

As the player begins to level-up, so too do the Pokemon found in the wild. This means the maximum combat power of a Pidgey caught at level 2 will be significantly less than one caught at level 12. As combat power increases within your squad, naturally so too do your chances of victory when facing opponents in battle.

However, it’s not just a tougher team that the higher level player can enjoy. Trainers will also find that certain items only become available to them as they level up more. These include upgraded Pokemon and PokeBalls.

 

Below is a list of XP rewards for performing various tasks in Pokemon Go

  • 500 XP – Catch new Pokemonpokemon go levels
  • 500 XP – Evolve Pokemon
  • 200 XP – Hatch Pokemon
  • 150 XP – Beat Pokemon trainer at gym
  • 100 XP – Catch Pokemon
  • 100 XP – Excellent Throw
  • 100 XP – Battling at gym
  • 50 XP – Battle training at a gym
  • 50 XP – Checking in at a PokeStop
  • 50 XP – Great Throw
  • 10 XP – Nice Throw
  • 10 XP – Curve Ball

 

What you receive at each level

Leveling up in Pokemon Go rewards you with essential items designed to help you gain a competitive edge in the game. Some of these items will get upgraded as you reach the higher levels. For example, once you reach level 12, you are able to find and use Great Balls as well as normal PokeBalls. Pokemonpokemon go levels caught within a Great Ball are much less likely to escape and run away. Once you reach the required Pokemon Go level you can switch to using Great Balls during encounters with Pokemon in the wild. If you happen upon an incredibly rare or strong Pokemon, it would obviously be wise to use the most powerful ball available to you.

 

Leveling up with a full backpack?

A player is only able to carry three hundred and fifty items in their backpack. Although this sounds like a lot, its not long before the limit is reached. Luckily, when you receive a leveling up reward with a full backpack, the items are still added – you just won’t be able to collect any more until you discard or use some of them.

 

 

While some players have reported that they have reached level 30 now, the level cap remains unclear. According to some speculators, the maximum Pokemon Go level may be level 40. However, the fact that the XP required to trigger the next level increases dramatically the higher up you go makes leveling up past level 20 time consuming and progress is very slow.
