Requirements for Levels 41 and 42 in Pokemon Go

Here’s a brief breakdown:

  • XP Required: 6 million
  • Power up a Legendary Pokémon 20 times
  • Win 30 raids
  • Catch 200 Pokémon in a single day
  • Earn 5 gold medals
  • Rewards: Glasses, 20 Ultra Balls, 20 Max Potions, 20 Max Revives, 20 Razz Berries, 1 Incubator, 1 Premium Raid Pass, 1 XL Candy

Level 42

  • XP Required: 7 million
  • Evolve Eevee into each of its unique evolutions
  • Use items to evolve Pokémon 15 times
  • Make 3 Excellent Throws

Eevee is like the Swiss Army knife of Pokémon, with eight possible evolutions or ‘Eeveelutions.’ While the name trick is tempting, be aware that you can only use it once for each type. After that, the name trick for evolving into Flareon, Vaporeon, or Jolteon is off the table.

Some experienced Trainers have advised against using the Eevee name trick for the Level 41 tasks. Specifically, do NOT use the trick for Flareon, Vaporeon, or Jolteon. Save it for the shinies. Why? Because these three Eeveelutions are random and it’s wiser to save the name trick for a guaranteed shiny evolution.

One player learned this the hard way. He ended up with a surplus of shiny Jolteons – six of them to be exact. Had he saved the naming trick, he could have a complete shiny set.
