The fastest way to level up in Pokemon GO

Pokemon Go header

Those of you have been playing Pokemon GO since it’s (unofficial) release will know that the game can turn into a bit of a grind once you’ve caught your first few Pokemon.

Thanks to a new report by The Verge however, we now have the fastest way to make you a true Pokemon GO master.

Check out the step-by-step instructions below:

  1. You grab as many weak pokémon as you can, particularly those that take the fewest candies to evolve, then you crack open a Lucky Egg (which doubles your XP for half an hour), and go crazy with the evolutions.
  2. Each evolution animation takes about 30 seconds, so ideally you’re aiming to evolve 60 pokémon during your half-hour XP fest. The best pokémon for this are Weedles, Caterpies, and Pidgey.
  3. The tricky part is working out how many of your pokémon to transfer to the farm in exchange for the candies without giving away so many that you’re missing out on potential evolutions.
  4. The best tool for working this out is PidgeyCalc — a website where you can just punch in the number of candies and pokémon you have, and it’ll do all the math for you.
