Tricks and Tips Pokemon Go

The more you play Pokémon Go, the more XP you will earn. After earning a certain amount of XP you'll level up, and each level brings new rewards.

Up to level 10 you need to gain an increasing number of XP points to level up, and the amount increases by 1000 XP each time. So, for level 1 you need 1000 XP, level 2 needs 2000 XP and so on.

The first couple of levels give you extra Poké Balls when you level up, but certain levels give you more exciting things.

When you reach level 5 you unlock Gyms, Potions and Revives, and you get 10 Potions, 1 Incense and 10 Revives as well.

Level 8 unlocks the Razz Berry, along with 15 Poké Balls, 10 Potions, 5 Revives, 10 Razz Berry, 1 Lure Modulator.

Level 10 unlocks Super Potions, Level 12 unlocks Great Balls, Level 15 unlocks Hyper Potions, and level 20 unlocks Ultra Balls.

Pokémon Go is a real phenomenon, and many companies are getting in on the Pokémon Go frenzy.

While a lot of companies are just jumping on the Pokémon Go bandwagon, many are releasing tools that can be genuinely helpful for budding Pokémon catchers.

For example, in the UK the mobile network giffgaff has teamed up with what3words to create a map called find.catch.share which highlight on a map where Pokémon sightings are, as well as Gyms, battles and places to charge your phone.

Yelp has also got into the act by including a filter where you can find nearby PokéStops while you play Pokémon Go. PokéStops turn special landmarks in your town into interactive events, and you can use the Yelp app to find them.
