Pokemon GO Tips: Pidgey Grinding Best Way To Get XP Fast?

By on

The mobile game hit Pokemon GO is basically about catching all the Pokemon around and becoming a formidable trainer with a high level. However, for some, levelling up is quite a problem. What they do not know is that the solution for that is actually right in front of them – Pidgey.

One of the hardest thing to do in this game of Niantic is to level up you trainer level, and according to several tips, the best way to gain experience is through collecting a lot of weak Pokemon like Pidgey, Caterpie, and Weedle. Other types of creatures would also do as long as they require less candies to evolve.

Now, with regards to the tip on gaining a lot of experience to level up, the first thing you need to do is to capture all the Pidgeys you will encounter. It is best advised to catch this specific creature because it only costs 12 candies to evolve. The second thing you should keep in mind is the use of Lucky Eggs, which is to boost your XP gain in half an hour.

Then after collecting Pidgeys, you now go to the website PidgeyCalc. Remember, your aim is to maximize the 30 minutes boost on XP gain by evolving several Pidgeys. But to do so, you will have to exchange some of your captured Pokemons, of the same type of course, to get candies. That website will help you compute how many Pokemon you will have to transfer to the farm for candies without giving away so many that you might possibly miss out on potential evolutions.

All you have to do is to enter the number of Pidgeys you have and the number of candies at hand. It will then give you the equivalent evolution time as well as the XP you will gain with the Lucky Egg. For example, the website noted that you have only nine minutes worth of evolution time (each Pidgey?s evolution lasts 30 seconds), which is probably worth 18,000 XP, then that would mean you will have to capture more of that specific creature in Pokemon GO to maximize the 30 minute XP boost by a Lucky Egg.

Aside from Pidgeys, Caterpies and Weedles are also recommended because they also only require 12 candies to evolve. Rattattas, Evees, and Oddish are also good, but they cost a bit more of candies to evolve, 25, than the previously mentioned Pokemon.

There you have it! One of the best ways to gain extra XP in the game Pokemon GO. Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
