Pokèmon GO level 40 reward is finally unveiled
Pokemon GO is a game that requires players to walk many kilometers finding, catching, and hatching Pokemon. As they journey through the game, they gain experience and level up and rewards are given for each level. The app further encourages players to visit important historical sites which appear as virtual PokeStops or Pokemon Gyms inside the game. PokeStops reward players with a handful of useful items such as PokeBalls, Potions, and Berries. With all these capabilities built into the game, even doing all of the above (including mass egg hatching) will only get the player a couple or a few or so levels and some decent rewards.
The grind from level 1 to level 20 isn’t too bad. The rewards for each level do get progressively better. One week of casual playtime is ample enough time to reach level 20. At level 20, one can expect 20 Ultra Balls, 20 Hyper Potions, 20 Revives, 20 Razz Berry, 2 Incense, 2 Lucky Eggs, 2 Egg Incubators, and 2 Lure Modules. However from 20 to 30, the experience required to level up gets exponentially bigger. The 10 levels alone requires 2 Million experience points. From 30 to 40? 20 Million. With 5 Million experience points needed from 39 to 40. That’s intense.
For such a big experience gap necessary to level, one would think the rewards to be amazing right? Well not quite.Thankfully, someone was able to reach level 40 (through a bot, which is considered cheating), the maximum level the game allows you to be at the present version of the game. From a screenshot, the game rewards the level 40 milestone with: 40 Ultra Balls, 40 Max Potions, 40 Max Revives, 40 Razz Berries, 4 Incense, 4 Lucky Eggs, 4 Blue Incubators, and 4 Lure Modules. It may seem plenty, but an avid GO player will easily burn through these items within a day or two.
For those expecting a Master Ball. Sorry. It’s out there. Somewhere.
