All Pokemon GO Level Requirements and Rewards

If you want to reach the highest level in Pokemon GO, here's everything you need to know

Once you enter the upper levels in Pokemon GO, you’ll need more than just XP to reach the next level. From levels 40 to 50, trainers will have a list of tasks to tick off before they can advance to the next stage. If you want to plan ahead, we’re breaking down what you’ll need to level up and what each new level will reward.

Pokemon GO Levels and Rewards For Levels 2-40

New players picking up Pokemon GO begin at level 1, which means there are no level requirements or rewards to reach that rank. From then on, it’s a grind for XP to reach the next level until you hit Level 40. Here is the required XP you’ll need to hit each new level, as well as what you’ll get for leveling up.

Keep in mind that when you level up, you’ll get your rewards even if your bag is full. However, an overfull bag means you won’t be able to spin PokeStops or Gym discs, so you may want to invest your PokeCoins in bag expansions as you reach these higher levels to make space for your level-up goodies.

Players continue to accrue XP once they reach Level 50, but as of now, you cannot level up beyond this point. Once upon a time, the level cap was Level 40, with 10 additional levels added in 2020. This suggests that we might see higher levels available in the game eventually, and they’ll likely come with more challenges to beat.
