Pokémon creators have set out to catch all of the animé’s avid fans and allow them to become a Pokémon trainer like Ash Ketchum and the rest of the gang through a free augmented reality (AR) app called Pokémon GO. From its launch date on July 2016, practically over 15 million Android and iOS users have been hooked to the game and seen walking to different places, in hopes of capturing more monsters in Poké Balls.
Hence, if you want to understand what your kids love so much about it and participate in this virtual reality, here is the novice’s guide to Pokémon GO Unlockables and Levels.
Experience Is Key
The game is like a training course for people who want to be the master of various Pokémons. You can only move on to the next level once you have gained the right amount of experience, figuratively and speaking, that Pokémon GO asks for in each level. Every monster you seize, the way you throw the ball to it, and how good you are at defeating others have corresponding points. Thus, your full focus is required.
Hatch Pokémon Eggs
If you see a co-worker brisk-walking around the building during a break, or somebody else jogging in a large park with their eyes glued to their smartphone, they are most likely trying to hatch Pokémon eggs. These eggs need you to cover two, five or 10 kilometers before the shell cracks, that’s why some players get to exercise as well. One hatched egg will reward you with EXP that is 100 times the distance you have covered.
Succeed In 40 Levels
There are 40 levels that a trainer-wannabe has to complete. The experiences you have to obtain increases by 1,000 for the first ten levels. For instance, you need 1,000 EXP to finish Level 1, 2,000 EXP for Level 2, and so forth. The number goes to up to 10,000 on the 10th level, 50,000 on the 20th, 500,000 on the 30th, and over 5,000,000 on the last scale.
Level Up Incentives
Your hard work will be compensated once you receive rewards for every level completed. They will start to appear on the 2nd level, where 15 Poké Balls are waiting for you. From Level 5 onwards, the gifts will consist of Potions, Incense, Revives, Egg Incubator, Razz Berry, and many more. The items become upgraded in newer levels.
Gyms, Basic and Max Revives, Razz Berry, Basic, Super, Hyper and Max Potions, and Great and Ultra Balls are all of the unlockables when you play the Pokémon GO. These are available on levels 5, 8, 10, 12, 15, 20, 25, and 30. After that, you will have to rely on your skills and the different rewards left with you until the 40th level is reached.
Pokémon GO is an amazing augmented reality game that encourages you to move and leave your comfortable chair more often. You and your kids will be able to exercise even if you do not want to so that you can earn more points. However, as a parent, we advise you to explain to the little ones the danger of using the app in the streets, especially the busy ones.
