Why Level Up Pokemon?

Make Pokemon Stronger

It is best to level up your Pokemon since leveling up will increase their stats, allow them to learn new moves, and helps them get stronger! Certain Pokemon can also evolve by leveling up!

Unlock Hyper Training

Making a Pokemon reach level 100 will make that Pokemon eligible for Hyper Training. For some Bottle Caps, Hyper Training will allow you to max out the IVs of a Pokemon!
