Leveling up in Pokemon Go can be quite a tedious task, especially if you don’t know what you’re doing. Here are a few helpful tips on how to quickly gain those precious XP and use Incense efficiently without cheating.


Pokemon Go requires time and dedication like any other games, where users need level up. Players must understand that there are no shortcuts to the game. Some have discovered cheats to Pokemon Go, but cheating takes away the thrill of the game, and no one ever wants to play with a cheater.

With that in mind, the first thing any decent trainer should do is to capture the same Pokemon multiple times over. Players should stack up on as much of the same Pokemon as they can. It is highly recommended to target Pokemon that evolve at 12 and 25 candies.

Zam noted that Pidgey, Caterpie and Weedle evolve at 12 candies. Pokemon that evolve at 25 candies include Squirtle, Bulbasaur, Charmander, Machop, Ghastly, Oddish, Abra, Rattata, Bellsprout and both gender of Nidoran.

Players can receive 500 XP just by evolving captured Pokemon. They can earn ten times more by following the succeeding steps. According to FanSided, the next thing players should do is to collect lucky eggs. Players start receiving a lucky egg when they reach level 9. However, they are very hard to come by after that.

Lucky eggs are extremely valuable since they allow players to double their XP for 30 minutes. The last step is to activate the lucky egg just before evolving a Pokemon. Doing so will give players 1000 XP. If players have five lucky eggs and five Pokemon ready to evolve, they can easily earn 5,000 XP.

As for Incense, this handy item is used to lure Pokemon towards players. Incense can be bought at different quantities using Pokemon Go Coins.

Gotta Be Mobile pointed out that when Incense is activated, it lures all sorts of Pokemon to the in-game character, but only for 30 minutes. Keep in mind that the Incense timer is still on even though players aren’t in the game. It is best to spend those 30 minutes solely waiting on Pokemon notifications rather than multitasking on several mobile apps simultaneously.
