Pokemon GO: Trainer Level Cap Set At 40, Requires 25 Million Experience Points

Pokemon GO appears to have been datamined by users and thanks to this, we have now an idea of what to expect from the game including the confirmation of a trainer level cap that is set at 40.

While there are some users out there which have already reached level 30, majority of the Pokemon GO players are probably stuck with a level below 20 considering the experience points and grinding that is required to level up.


If you were wondering about the max level cap for a trainer in Pokemon GO, it appears to be set at 40. Going from Level 39 to Level 40 will require around 5 million experience points, which is a rather insane amount of experience points. Moreover, to level up to 39, the user will have to gain around 20 million experience points.

There is a certain trick that can be used to power level to 15 in a short amount of time but looking at the experience requirements, even the trick won’t really do much for players who are aiming to hit the level cap.

Egg level cap is also set at 20 and any egg that is obtained after passing level 20 will have the same quality as a level 20 egg. Meanwhile for Wild Pokemon, the level cap is set at 30 meaning once you reach level 30, you will have to power level your Pokemon as their CP points won’t increase with your level.
