Pokemon Go XP levels chart - What gets the most XP?

Pokemon Go XP levels chart - What gets the most XP?

Pokemon Go trainers will know the importance of XP but a lot of you might not be aware of how much XP is required to go up a level or how much each activity gains.

Each level you go through on Pokemon Go, the more XP is needed. This means it is exponentially harder to increase your rank as you get closer to the final level of 40.

For example, to go from Level 1 to 2 it takes 1,000 XP, 10 to 11 you'll need 10,000 XP and 30 to 31 will require a massive 500,000 XP. Naturally, this system allows new Pokemon Go players to ascend the levels relatively quickly while providing experienced players a challenge to reach the summit of level 40.

How to get XP fast?

Nothing stands out as a way to gain XP at a particularly fast rate but to go through the levels quickly, regularly hatching eggs, spinning PokeStops and winning raid battles offers generous XP.

It is also important to note that lucky eggs double all XP while they are active. For example, if you hatch 10km egg with a lucky egg activated you will get 2,000 XP instead of 1,000.

Your friends may offer the best route to get the quickest XP in Pokemon Go...

One way to get a lot of XP is through friends, though. Sharing friend codes and becoming ultra friends is an excellent way to gain levels quickly.

The following XP is earned for each friend stage:

  • Good Friend: 3,000 XP
  • Great Friend: 10,000 XP
  • Ultra Friend: 50,000 XP
  • Best Friend: 100,000 XP

Getting to these stages takes time, literally, as it is based on days but if you're disciplined with the process it seems to be the consensus quickest way to reach the Everest that is Level 40. Lucky eggs also apply to this bonus - so, if you can remember, make sure you've used a lucky egg when reaching a new friend stage!
