XL Candy is a resource that enables you to level your Pokemon even further than before in Pokemon Go. It is available for players who hit Level 40 and allows them to level their Pokemon to an even higher CP level.
The XL Candy helps you with the new level trainer level cap increase and taking it all the way to level 50. It works as soon as you hit Level 40, you can level up a Pokemon all the way to 50 if you have the XL Candy available. You need to have the exact XL candy for that particular Pokemon you want to upgrade.

FASTEST WAY TO GET XL CANDY
One of the fastest ways to get XL Candy is to catch a Pokemon especially if they are evolved, Legendary or Mythical where your XL Candy will be guaranteed. If you catch an unevolved Pokemon, there is still a decent chance from 15%-25% that each catch will give you one to three XL Candy for that particular Pokemon.
The Raid hours can help you to get your Pokemon past level 41 if they are evolved, Legendary or Mythical and for unevolved creatures, the game itself gives rewards including Go Battle League rewards which include Poliwhirl, Pupitar, Scraggy, Galvantuala, and Stunfisk which will give you more XL Candy.
