The recent Pokemon Go Beyond update has increased the max level cap limit in the game. You can now go beyond the 40 levels and reach up to level 50, which is the new max level cap currently. Along with the new update, there is also a major change in how you level up through each level. Leveling up only required EXP until recently, but now you also have to complete research tasks to increase your level in Pokemon Go. In this guide, we will enlist all the requirements to reach level 42 in Pokemon Go.
Pokemon Go: How to Reach Level 42
You need to complete the following research task requirements to reach level 42 in Pokemon Go. We will also guide you through how to complete each of them in the best possible ways.
- Evolve Eevee into each of its unique Evolutions
- Use items to evolve Pokémon 15 times
- Make 3 Excellent Throws
- Use 200 Berries to help catch Pokémon
How to Evolve Eevee Into Each of its Unique Evolutions
There are a total of 7 evolutions available for Eevee. Hence, you will require 7 Eevee to complete this task. Here’s a list of all the forms of Eevee and how to evolve it into different forms.
|Pokemon||How to evolve|
|Flareon||Eevee randomly evolves as Flareon, Jolteon, or Vaporeon|
|Espeon||Keep Eevee as a buddy, and walk at least 10KM, then evolve it during the in-game day time|
|Umbreon||Keep Eevee as a buddy, and walk at least 10KM, then evolve it during the in-game night time|
|Glaceon||Evolve Eevee at a PokeStop with active Glacial Lure|
|Leafeon||Evolve Eevee at a PokeStop with active Mossy Lure|
Use Items to Evolve Pokémon 15 Times
There are various items that can help evolve your Pokemon in Pokemon Go. Use these items 15 times to evolve your Pokemon to complete this task. You can get the evolution items through multiple methods: 7-day PokeStop spin, regular PokeStop spins, and Go Battle league battles. The items that you can earn and use to evolve Pokemon include:
- Metal Coat
- Sinnoh Stone
- Sun Stone
- Unova Stone
- King’s Rock
- Dragon Scale
Make 3 Excellent Throws
The best way to complete this task is by going for Pokemon that have larger catching circles. These Pokemon are easy to catch and you have a great chance of hitting excellent throws while catching them. Some of the Pokemon with larger catching circles are Ponyta, Wailmer, and Slowbro. It is very difficult to get excellent throws, but luckily, for this quest, you don’t have to get 3 excellent throws in a row.
Use 200 Berries to Help Catch Pokémon
Spin PokeStops and gyms while roaming around the Poke world to collect different berries. Also, perform raids and open gifts to get berries. Once you have enough berries, use them on a Pokemon before catching them. This task will be completed as soon as you use 200 berries for catching Pokemon.
