For the first four and a half years of its release Pokémon GO has had the same level cap. Players who reached level 40 typically took months or years to do so, as it required such a large amount of XP that it required a huge effort on their part. Once you hit it though, XP mostly became worthless and players found endgame activities a bit stagnant until more options were added. And now, the level cap is finally increasing for the first time. But how does it work? Here’s how to level up to 50, showing all tasks, rewards, and XP requirements in Pokémon GO.

How to Level Up to 50, All Tasks, Rewards, and XP Requirements

We don’t yet have all the requirements, but we’ll be updating this list as they come in (This is currently testing in Australia only). Below are all the tasks players need to accomplish to level up from 40 to 50. Some tasks will count previous accomplishements, like which Pokémon you’ve caught, while others will not. If you want to power through these, try to save up tasks for after you have them available, rather than finishing them before you hit that particular level. Some tasks, rewards, and XP requirements haven’t been discovered yet, so we’ll be updating this guide as we find them. For those that we don’t know we have included the flavor text from Niantic, which gives a good idea of what you’ll need to be doing. Note that all individual quests so far seem to reward 500 XP.
