Pokémon Go now has its very first level 50 trainer, an accomplishment that requires intense dedication and grinding.
FleeceKing streamed his level up on Monday by means of Twitch, showcasing himself as the first level 50 player in the video game, with another fitness instructor, Lauren Bertoni, following shortly after. Both Bertoni and FleeceKing hail from Australia.
Niantic increased Pokémon Gos level cap from 40 to 50 in December 2020, though the requirements to level up included more than simply acquiring XP. Hard-working Pokémon Go players require to finish tasks in order to level, some of which are gated by time. A handful of gamers hit level 48 recently, and while grinding to 49, their progress was reset. To fix this, Niantic enhanced the impacted players up, completing their jobs, and bumping them to level 49.
In order to level up to 50 within the last day, FleeceKing and Bertoni needed to make 999 excellent throws, capture five Legendary Pokémon, and take down 3 Team Go Rocket Leaders utilizing Pokémon with 2,500 CP or less. All of these jobs are absolutely nothing to belittle, so their effort definitely paid off.
