Pokémon GO will soon be getting a higher level cap up to level 50. Some reports suggest that Niantic is soon planning to implement the new level cap in Pokémon GO. By having the level cap raised to level 50, many things are sure going to be changed. And, one thing that would be similar for everyone is all the hard work that will be required to reach level 50 in Pokémon GO. In this article, we will talk about the Pokémon GO Level 50 in detail and know about the XP (experience) requirements, and all the rewards that you will get on leveling up.
Pokémon GO Level 50 Introduction
If you have been playing Pokémon Go for a while then you must be aware of the current level cap, which is level 40. And once you reach the current level 40, the game is sort of completed for you. Although, there are many more things to do regardless of just getting to the max level 40. But, currently, the highest level a trainer can achieve in Pokémon GO is level 40. Now, not many trainers have not even reached level 40 yet, due to all the required hard work and XP requirements. Getting to the current highest level is still pretty much challenging for most of the players living in remote areas. Due to the lack of PokeStops, Gyms, and the absence of other Pokémon GO Trainers, makes is quite difficult for a trainer to level up to the max.

According to one of the senior developers at Pokémon GO, Matt Slemon confirmed that Pokémon GO level 50 will be a thing soon. By the future, we do not mean ten years later, but sometimes later this year. According to him, getting to level 50 in Pokémon GO would not be easier by any means, and would require a lot of continuous effort, and consistent XP gains to be able to make it to the level 50. It is clear from his talks that the Pokémon GO level 50 would be quite difficult to achieve even for the most active players.
Pokémon GO Level 50 XP Requirements
Currently, the total XP required to reach the highest level, which is level 40, is a whopping 20,000,000 XP. And, things are going to get even more challenging after the introduction of Level 50 in Pokémon GO. The rumored XP requirement for level 50 is said to be 365,000,000 which is not a joke. The Pokémon GO level 50 XP requirement could be almost 19 times the XP required to reach level 40. This only means one thing, some pretty serious hard work.
Below is a table with the XP required to reach level 50 in Pokémon GO. Here we are only showing the amount of XP required to go from level 40 to level 50, and not from level 1. So, if you want to check out the complete XP chart from level 1, all the way up to level 40, then you can check that out at theSilphRoad.

Pokémon GO Level 50 Rewards
On reaching the current highest level in Pokémon GO, which is level 40, we get a mix of some basic items that include x40 (Ultra Balls, Max Potion, Max Revive, Razz Berry), and x4 (Incense, Lucky Egg, Egg Incubator, Lure Module). These are pretty basic rewards and nothing special in that except for the quantity of all these items. Although we often run out of Pokémon GO bag space and have to some of this stuff to make more room. According to PokeMiners, the rewards at Pokémon GO Level 50 could be x40 (Ultra Balls, Max Potion, Max Revive), x25 Razz Berry, and x5 (Incense, Lucky Egg, Egg Incubator, Lure Module). The rewards at level 50 are pretty much the same, except for the increased quantities of some items, while the reduction in the quantity of Razz Berries.

Other Possible Changes
We have already talked about the level 50 XP requirement, and all the rewards that you will get upon reaching level 50 in Pokémon GO. There is one other major aspect that might be changed upon the introduction of the new level cap, that is the PokeStop/Gym request feature.
Currently, any trainer upon reaching level 40 can request to place a gym at some nearby place including Public parks, temples, and other public places. And, there are some chances that this request feature might be shifted from level 40 to level 50, which would again make the game much more challenging, and this should not happen. The reason is that there are a lot of Pokémon GO trainers who are living in remote locations and are somehow surviving without any nearby gyms or PokeStops, and are working very hard to reach the level 40 so that they can request Niantic for a nearby PokeStop, or even a Gym. By shifting this feature to level 50, would surely bring more difficulties for all such trainers, and thus the feature should not be altered.
Pokémon GO Level 50 release would up the difficulty level of the game to a great extent and would make the game even more challenging in the future. All the maxed out trainers would need to get off their comfort zones and grind up once again to reach the top. Although, there is still no official announcement regarding the introduction of level 50 in Pokémon GO, and we can only hope that it might be announced some times in the coming few months.
