For those of us still playing Pokemon GO (and there are a lot of us!), leveling up is getting harder and harder. Hell, I just hit level 32 and it feels like it’ll be another month before I reach 33. And I’m meant to be able to get to level 40 someday?! Sounds impossible, right? Well, by utilizing the Pokemon GO Plus Lucky Egg trick, it becomes a whole lot easier.
Do you remember the lucky egg evolution trick? If not, I’ll explain. Basically, you gather a bunch of Pidgeys, Weedles, and other Pokemon that don’t require much candy to evolve. Then you crack a Lucky Egg, and you start evolving as many of your Pokemon as you can in the 30 minutes the egg is active.
And don’t get me wrong; this is still an awesome way to rack up a quick and easy 70-85K EXP (over 100K if you close and re-open the app while evolving), but as you’ve probably found out by now, you need a ridiculous amount of EXP to continue leveling after you hit level 30. That’s where the Pokemon GO Plus Lucky Egg trick comes in.
Things you will need for the Pokemon GO Plus Lucky Egg trick to work:
- 1x Pokemon GO Plus
- 1x Lucky Egg
- 90+ Pokemon ready to be evolved
- 7th day streak bonus for both spinning Poke Stops and catching Pokemon ready to be earned
As well as the things listed above, this trick works best if you’re in a well populated area with a ton of Pokemon spawns and Poke Stops. It will still work (to a lesser extent) if you’re in a rural area, but ideally you’ll be performing this trick in a place that is absolutely teeming with Pokemon.
Now that you’ve completed all of the requirements for the trick, let’s get right into it.
First of all, you need to use your Lucky Egg and start mass-evolving Pokemon. Make sure you favorite all of the Pokemon that are able to evolve so they’re easier to find in your list, and don’t bother transferring any evolved Pokemon until after you’re finished with the Lucky Egg (unless you need a few extra candy to perform an additional evolution; but save this until the end).
The next thing you’re going to be doing, and the only thing that differs from the old-school way of mass evolving, is you’re also going to be walking around your local area catching Pokemon and spinning Poke Stops with the Pokemon GO Plus.
Didn’t know you could do both at once? Well, you can. And it’s glorious. I gave this a shot the other day after a particularly rewarding hunt, and managed to evolve 89 Pokemon (89,000 EXP) as well as get a grand total of 46,000 EXP from spinning Poke Stops and catching wild Pokemon with the Pokemon GO Plus (this includes both 7 day streak bonuses). That’s a combined total of 135,000 EXP in 30 minutes. Not bad, eh?
I’m sure that there are many players out there who would be able to utilize the Pokemon GO Plus Lucky Egg trick far better than I was able to, and I wouldn’t be surprised if I saw people reaching up to 160,000 XP or even higher per Lucky Egg.
For example, if you sat on a bus that took you around your city, you’d be literally pressing the Pokemon GO Plus button constantly; resulting in more XP. If you had 9 eggs ready to hatch before starting the Lucky Egg, you’d get an extra few thousand XP. You see where I’m going with this?
If you want to achieve massive EXP gain with a single Lucky Egg, you need to get creative. You need to use all of the tools at your disposal. Because after all, that’s the only way you’ll ever become the very best, like no one ever was.
