The trainer level not only rewards the player with items, but it also affects the Pokemon, both captured and wild, in several ways. There are a ton of ways to earn XP in the game, but some rewards provide more XP than the others.

This helpful guide by The Silphroad details all of the ways players can get XP as well as how much XP is gained by doing them.

The data reveals that the best XP gain is from hatching an egg after a 10-kilometer travel. In fact, it?s the only feat that rewards players with 1000 XP. The lowest XP gain is from getting a ??Curveball? or ?Nice!? bonus when throwing the PokeBall, which is 10 XP.

From this data, it?s easy to devise a plan so that each use of the Lucky Egg is maximized?in Pokemon GO.?The best way to use it is when the 10-kilometer egg is only a few walks away from hatching. Using it upon placing it in an incubator might be a bad move as Lucky Eggs last for 30 minutes only. Timing it perfectly with the egg hatch will reward players with a whopping 2000 XP gain.
