Pokémon GO XP boost in Friendship levels, detailed breakdown for Good to Best Friends during Adventures Abound Season

Trainers, as you might know, the Adventures Abound Season has kicked off in Pokémon GO, and it’s all about friendships – literally. For the entirety of this season, you’ll get 1.5x XP for leveling up your friendships. Let’s dig into what this means and how you can make the most of it.

Before we get too deep into the new bonuses, let’s do a quick refresher on how friendships work in Pokémon GO. Adding friends enables a whole realm of gameplay options, from sending gifts to trading Pokémon. Once you’re connected, you’ll see each other’s Trainer profiles, achievements, and more. If you have younger Trainers in the house, be aware that parental controls can limit these features.

When you connect with other Trainers, they can see your Trainer profile, your stats, and which Pokémon you’ve caught recently. You can always adjust your privacy settings if you want to limit what others see. Want to see who’s online? Toggle your Online Status in the Friend List for that real-time connection.

The core of the friendship system in Pokémon GO is its leveling. You have five Friendship levels to achieve: Friends, Good Friends, Great Friends, Ultra Friends, and Best Friends.
