A new update for Pokémon GO has just been shipped by Niantic, and it turns the level cap of the title up a notch.
Previously, Pokémon GO players could only get their in-game characters to a maximum of level 40. However, from now on, the level cap has been increased by 10 levels and players can get to level 50.
It goes without saying that players would have to grind a lot for the ten extra levels, but they’ll also be rewarded upon leveling up. Other than the exp requirement, leveling up will also require the completion of a new level-up quest on every level.
If you manage to hit level 40 in Pokémon GO before December 31, 2020, you’ll also receive the Legacy Level 40 badge in the game. Becoming level 40 before then will also unlock a Legacy Level 40 quest which is set to arrive in 2021.
