A quick-fix for those looking for massive XP gains in a short period of time
We all know that there are certain Pokémon in Pokémon GO which are very, very common. Be it Zubats, or Weedles, or Caterpies of Pidgeys. Well, apparently, there is a way to use these common Pokémon to our advantage, by catching ’em all. This trick can help you get up to 60,000 XP in just 30 minutes.
Now, for this trick to work, Pidgey is the best choice to go with. There are a few reasons for this. Firstly, they are very common, regardless of your location. Secondly, they only need 12 candies to evolve to Pidgeotto, and the third being that it evolves into a more powerful Pokémon than the other common ones do, in terms on CP, so that’s that.
Now for the trick, there are three basic steps :-
Step 1) Catch a lot of Pidgeys
The exact number suggested is 195, out of which 135 will be transferred to Professor Willow and 60 will be evolved. The same can be done with Weedles and Caterpies, and in terms of the aim of the trick, massive XP gains, all of them will work the same. The only reason to give Pidgeys preference is that they apparently turn into higher CP Pokémon once evolved. If that is not a concern for you, then you can choose whichever common Pokémon that fits your requirement the best, only make sure that they don’t need more than 12 candies to evolve, as that will make the trick harder to work for you, since you’ll need to capture a whole lot more Pokémon.
Step 2) Use a Lucky Egg
A Lucky Egg doubles the XP you receive for 30 minutes. Every evolution you perform will give you 500 XP, usually, which means you will get 1000 XP per evolution when using a Lucky Egg.
Step 3) Mass Evolve the Pidgeys
Once you have activated the Lucky Egg, evolve all the 60 Pidgeys.
The calculations are as follows: –
- A lucky egg lasts for 30 minutes.
- One evolution takes around 30 seconds.
- Hence, 60 evolutions can be performed in 30 minutes.
- 12 candies are needed, per evolution, which takes the total to 12 candies x 60 Pidgeys = 720 candies
- Every Pidgey caught brings in 3 Pidgey candies, which means that after catching 195 pidgeys, you should have 585 candies
- Transferring 135 Pidgeys to Professor Willow will get you 135 candies, taking your total to 585 + 135 = 720 candies, exactly what you need.
This seems like a pretty neat trick, and even if you fail to evolve all 60 Pidgeys in 30 minutes, you will still have a lot of XP added to your meter. The 60,000 figure seems to be the maximum possible, for now.
So go out there, and start catching as many Pidgeys as you can! Let us know how it goes, in the comments below!
