Every game has some mechanic to divide players, and who gets do to what depends on, in our case, levels.
Pokemon Go is one of the games that “limits” their players, in terms of what they can do. For example, Trainers in Pokemon Go can join Raids or Gym Battles only if they are level 5 or above. While it is easier to reach that level, you still need to work and earn XP.
XP is what the Pokemon Go community calls the Experience Points. XP is needed for levelling up, and as you progress through the levels, you get access to Raids, Gyms, Items, Research tasks, Evolution Items and more. You can see that levelling up is important in Pokemon Go.
Each level has its amount of XP, so it is crucial to play the game as much as you can to earn XP. There are others ways of earning XP, but the most efficient way of getting XP is through playing.
Everything you do in Pokemon Go gives you XP. Make sure to throw Curve Balls, and aim for either a Nice Throw, a Great Throw or an Excellent Throw. Do not miss your Daily Catch Streaks and catch every Pokemon you see on your map.
Hatching Eggs and spinning PokeStops or Gyms is another way of earning XP. Evolve Pokemon, battle at Gyms and/or Raids, send Gifts to friends and make sure to beat a Legendary Raid Boss, for which you can get a whopping 10,000 XP.
The amount of XP you will earn can be doubled if there is an in-game event, where there is an active XP bonus. Or you can use a Lucky Egg, which doubles the XP you earn for 30 minutes after activating the Lucky Egg.
If you have the time, place and patience, and a desire to level up faster, you should Raid a lot, catch a lot of Pokemon, evolve even more and use the most out of Lucky Eggs and bonuses.
