I've been playing Pokémon Go since it launched. I've almost got enough experience points to have reached level 40 — multiple times. I've completed all my regional Pokédexes, and have beaten over 2,000 Raids. Over the last couple of years, levels, events, and encounters, I've picked up a few tips and tricks that have helped me immensely. It's the stuff I know now that I wish I knew back when I started. Heck, I wish I knew some of it back when I hit level 30!

We have lots of individual guides you can check out for quick answers, but here you can find the most important tips and tricks for the entire game.

  • Wurmples evolution depends on the gender check the icon next to the name
  • I think it's worth noting that the Ralts must be male and the Snorunt must be female (at least in the games).
  • I meant a friend who directed me to spell caster called Papa online who help people to solve their relationship and marriage problems. I was really skeptical before i wrote to him and he told me not to worry about anything, that i should give him a day for him to cast a spell for me and after 2 days i was really surprised my ex called me and started begging for me to take her back . That is how my ex came back to me and she no longer think of other people, but me and me alone and am happy my money was not wasted. whatsapp 234 9039553523 I'M a testimony believe it of not. I HAVE DONE MY PART BY PASSING OUT THIS INFO To people outside having love issues and marital problems.
