Pokemon GO Walkthrough and Guide

Harvesting XP


If you're looking to gain as much XP as humanly possible to level your Trainer up in Pokemon GO, then follow these helpful tips:

1) Lucky Eggs Are A Must. They double all experience you gain in a thirty minute timespan, which can see your Trainer ascend the rankings pretty darn fast. Whether you Purchase or obtain PokeCoins on your own, you should always think about buying some of these. Also, try to hold off evolving as many of your Pokemon as you can, as well as using both Incenses and Lure Modules, until you have a Lucky Egg going so you can double the experience you gain.

2) Hatch As Many Eggs As You Can... Then Hatch Some More! These suckers hold a ton of experience for each hatch - depending on how many kilometers you had to walk to do so - and they can help your Trainer soar with XP. Also, if you know your eggs are about to hatch, you can even use a Lucky Egg to double those experience points too!

3) Catch Pokemon. Simple enough, right? The more Pokemon you catch, the more experience you'll gain. You even gain additional points for the way you throw your PokeBalls and if the Pokemon is a new registration to your Pokedex!

4) Battle Gyms Your Team Doesn't Own. This can gain you more experience than most things in Pokemon GO, depending just how good you do at the Gym. The more Pokemon you defeat, the more XP your Trainer will earn. Also, did we mention the Lucky Eggs work on this too? So awesome.

5) Visit Plenty Of PokeStops. They don't give you much experience, but those smaller increments definitely add up if you visit enough of them.

6) Evolve Pokemon, ESPECIALLY Those Pokemon Needing Only 12 Pokemon Candies To Do So. Every time you evolve a Pokemon, you will gain 500 XP, which can easily be doubled to a 1000 XP if using a Lucky Egg. This can easily be abused on Pidgeys, Caterpies, and Weedles, all common Pokemon that only need the small amount of 12 Candies to Evolve. Get ready for some easy leveling-up.
