They’re out there. Hundreds of different Pokémon. Hiding in bushes. Outside your favourite burrito place. Maybe even right behind you?

Like any other self-respecting Pokémon GO player, you launch a trusty Poké Ball. Sure, you want that Pokémon in your collection, but you also want the experience points.

Why is gaining experience so important? It levels you up. At higher levels, you get cool stuff like Ultra Balls, you can find stronger Pokémon in the wild and you can power up your Pokémon even more. So to make sure you're as strong as you can be for raid battles and taking over gyms, follow these tips:

1. Wait to evolve

Are you the proud owner of a Lucky Egg? It boosts experience gain for 30 minutes. Use it effectively by waiting to evolve Pokémon until it’s active.

2. Throw a curveball

When a Pokémon appears, circle your finger over a Poké Ball to spin it. Then pitch the ball at an angle for a bonus on every catch.
