Pokemon Go Reduce the XL Candy Level Requirement

Trainers, Niantic and Pokemon Go announced that they will be reducing the XL Candy level requirement from 40 and above, to 31 and above.

The new Season of GO starts on June 1, 2022, at 10 PM and you’ll have a chance to enjoy all bonuses, features, shiny Pokemon, and much more until September 1, 2022. Just like every previous season, the Season of GO will last for three months full of cool stuff, new events, different Pokemon in Raids, and many bonuses.

Now, one of the very cool things they announced during the Season of GO, is the lowering of the XL Candy level. Only players who are level 40 and above can earn this type of Candy, but with this change players who are level 31 and above will be able to get XL Candy.

Here is the announcement:

“Earlier Candy XL Access

Starting with the Season of GO and continuing beyond, we are reducing the level at which Trainers can begin earning Candy XL. Now, all Trainers level 31 and above will be able to earn Candy XL!”

The XL Candy was introduced in Pokemon Go back when they launched the GO Beyond feature in the game. The XL Candy allows Trainers to power up their Pokemon beyond level 40. Only Trainers that have reached level 40 can start using this type of Candy. Now, things are changing, and Trainers who reach level 31 or above will be able to get XL Candy.
