Part 3. Fastest Way to Level Up in Pokémon Go 2022

Leveling up in Pokémon Go is simple and strategic simultaneously. Below I will tell you a few ways you can level up quickly.

1Make as many friends as possible

Making more friends and improving the quality of your friends will earn you XP. Friendship levels from "Good" to "Best" will earn you different levels of XP. Once your friendship level reaches "Best", you will earn 100,000 XP. You can also double your XP through lucky eggs!

2Battle

Battling is an effective way to gain XP quickly. Taking down a Gym with a Lucky Egg on will net you 2,000 XP, plus more for defeating each Pokémon. If you have the ability to fight long-range raids, then I suggest you take advantage of it. Defeating a legendary raid boss will award you 10,000 XP.

3Eolve Pokemon

Massive Evolution Pokémon is a way to get XP fast. You get a lot of candy in the process of catching Pokémon, which can be used to provide evolution for your Pokémon. You can stack evolvable Pokémon in your roster and evolve them all at once after using a lucky egg.

4Double XP Events

Pokémon Go holds a double XP event every year. During the Double XP event you can get double experience by catching, hatching, evolving Pokémon and battle. By taking advantage of this event, you will gain XP much faster.

5Catch Every Pokémon

The more Pokémon you can catch, the more XP you'll earn. A good curveball throw will bring you more XP, and if you make a good throw every time, the XP you earn will increase rapidly over time.
