The definitive list of Pokémon Go levels and unlockable items

If you're out wandering the streets of your city playing Pokémon Go, desperate in your search for 101 Magikarp so you can evolve them to Gyarados, it's best practice to have a few good items under your Trainer belt.

Each time you level up, you're awarded with a few items, and they get better and better as you work your way up to level 30. You can also unlock new items as you level up and buy them with PokéCoins or receive them as rewards.

Here are all the unlockable items in Pokémon Go, as well as the items you'll be rewarded with each time you level up to help you on your journey to become a Pokémon Master!

Pokémon Go items

Poké Balls: The tools of the trade (PUN INTENDED)! Poké Balls are what you use to catch Pokémon. If you're not catching Pokémon, you're not leveling up and you're not evolving the Pokémon you already have. Poké Balls can be found at PokéStops and bought in the Shop.

Great Balls: The next level in Poké Balls, Great Balls offer a higher catch rate, so if you're facing off with a rare or really strong Pokémon, put that Poké Ball down and whip out a Great Ball. That is, if you really want to catch of course. These become available to you once you hit level 12, after which you'll start recieving them alongside regular Poké Balls from Pokéstops.

Ultra Balls: Exactly like the name sounds, Ultra Balls provide an even higher catch rate than Great Balls. If you come across a Charizard, don't even think; toss an Ultra Ball. These can be bought in the Shop once unlocked or found at PokéStops after level 20.

Master Balls: Ah, the elusive Master Ball, A.K.A. the Mewtwo catcher. These were available in the Pokémon Go beta but haven't yet appeared in the live version. Only time will tell. At any rate, Master Balls are the be-all-end-all of Poké Balls. They don't just have a high catch rate; they have a guaranteed catch rate. If you happen to come across a legendary Pokémon at some point (if Niantic adds them to the game), don't hesitate; use a Master Ball.

Lure Module: A Lure Module lures Pokémon to a PokéStop for 30 minutes. A PokéStop with a Lure Module attached will appear in Map View as a shower of pink petals and all the Pokémon attracted to that Stop can be caught by anyone. You can buy Lure Modules in the Shop. You'll also be rewarded with a Lure Module at some levels.

Incense: An aromatic item that lures Pokémon to your location for 30 minutes. Incense can be bought in the Shop, found at PokéStops, and received as a reward when you level up. You even start the game with two of them. And, if you're traveling with teams, Incense seems to affect all nearby players, though the player who used the Incense is more likely to find rare or strong Pokémon.

Razz Berry: If you feed a Pokémon a Razz Berry, it'll become easier to catch.You can find Razz Berries at PokéStops starting at level 8 and you'll receive them as rewards for most levels after that.

Egg Incubator: Egg Incubators incubate eggs (who'da thunk?!) as you walk until they're ready to hatch. They can be bought in the Shop for one time use, but if you spend a bit more, you can buy infinite-use incubators.

Camera: Á la Pokémon Snap, you can take photos of Pokémon as you encounter them in the wild. This item is usually given to you when you start the game, so you don't need to purchase it from the Shop or hope for it when you level up.

Potion: Potions are used to heal your Pokémon's HP as you battle them at Gyms throughout your city. A basic Potion restores 20 HP. They can be found at PokéStops, bought in the Shop, and received as rewards for leveling up. You don't get them until level 5, since you can't battle at a Gym until level 5 anyway.

Super Potion: Super Potions are used to heal the HP of your Pokémon by 50 points. Super Potions can only be found at PokéStops after level 10 or received as rewards for leveling up.

Hyper Potion: The grandaddy of the Potions game (at least in Pokémon Go), is the Hyper Potion, which restores a Pokémon's HP by 200 points. Hyper Potions are rewarded to you at level 15 and can be found at PokéStops after that, though they're pretty hard to come by. Use them wisely!

Revive: A Revive can be used to wake a fainted Pokémon and it restores half of that Pokémon's HP. You'll only need a Revive when battling enemy Pokémon at Gyms, since training with friendly Pokémon won't result in fainting.

Max Revive: Max Revives will wake your fainted Pokémon and fully restore that Pokémon's HP.

Bag: Your bag is where you keep all of your non-Pokémon items, like Poké Balls and the like. Your bag can hold up to 350 items to start, and you can buy a Bag Upgrade from the shop, which increases your capacity by 50 items at a time.

Pokémon Eggs: Pokémon Eggs can be found at PokéStops and contain Pokémon that you hatch by walking around. Certain eggs will require more steps, so you'd better get moving.

Lucky Eggs: Lucky Eggs don't contain Pokémon but instead are a consumable item that can be bought in the Shop. They double your experience gain for 30 minutes, so use them effectively.

PokéCoins: PokéCoins are the in-game currency that allow you to buy things in the Shop. You can get coins by purchasing them from the Shop with real money, or by defending a gym with one of your Pokémon.

  • I like cookies Posted via the Android Central App
  • Are people actually playing this pokingbutt game? Seriously? Rodeo time, time to get er on down the road
  • Nah, we're all just pretending to piss you off. Posted via the Pokémon Central App
  • They are just jumping on the band wagon. It's sad how much of a society of followers we live in... S7 edge...Soon to be Note 7 edge
  • Says someone called "ZOMBIE1" who's going from a Samsung phone to a Samsung phone lol hypocrisy much? Posted via the Pokémon Central App
  • No
  • No what? Come on, use your words. Posted via the Pokémon Central App
  • I did you git.
  • Now now, there's no cause for petty name calling! Posted via the Pokémon Central App
  • Your one to talk about names there fuzzylump. Been going from Samsung to Samsung cause I like having a new phone every 6 months. Definitely not a follower I'm the guy in the crowd holding up a galaxy in a sea of iPhone's lol S7 edge...Soon to be Note 7 edge
  • so what you mean to say is that you're a consumer sheep that deludes yourself into thinking you're 'original' and 'unique' because you've probably already been alienated by everybody else in your life thanks to your low intelligence leading to arrogance? a bent spoon may be different, but it's not useful
  • I think I love you
  • I think I love you...
  • Damn I think I love you too nice response lmao
  • Zombie1 are you aware that more people have Samsung phones than people have iPhones?
  • Hey anceluero yes people are playing this game it actually encourages people to explore their surroundings and from an intuitive standpoint is a brilliant idea. P.S. Your picture looks like your the only one "poking butt" cowboy dan. GET HIM DONE, you mean?
  • Holy ****, will this **** ever end? Pokefukoff
  • Welcome to Pokeman Go Central. We will no longer be reporting anything but Pokeman. GIVE IT A REST!!!! I'm here for android related news, not to read about one game over and over and over. From my Platinum Gold Note 5
  • In my bag, I have a pair of master balls. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Giggity Posted via what ever tickles me at the time.
  • Like seriously, how many f*****g Pokémon GO articles can you write in one day?! This must be some kind of record. This is ridiculous. Posted via the Android Central App
  • 19. The answer is 19, with the last 5 being all Pokemon. And there are still several hours left in the day. Posted via the Android Central App
  • LOL i love it. It seems like the few people who arent playing are the people who are tired of pokemon posts all over the internet.
  • Over 50% aren't playing it.
  • The sad thing is. I play it casually and am tired of seeing the spam articles. Consolidate the information between your employees and actually report on other news. All of these "sick tips and tricks!" could be stickies in the Pokémon go forum they created. That wouldn't give them as much traffic though so we can't have that. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Gotta read 'em all
  • I have a feeling that AC is now intentionally posting as many Pokemon articles as they possibly can, just because it's annoying their readers so much. Childish? You know it. But they've dug their heels in, and as almighty editors (for those of you who don't know, editors almost always have ego problems), they will not cease until they grow bored. Just like Phil sticking to his guns over the GS7 Active water resistance article, despite the fact that people who know a lot more about statistics than he does called him out repeatedly. If he were entirely honest with himself (and his readers), he'd print a retraction, acknowledging the value and meaning of the Consumer Reports test. But no, he went to print with a hasty, uneducated opinion, and he can't back down now because he doesn't want to look like a fool. Joke's on him though, eh? Posted via the Android Central App
  • Yea it becomes a little too much now Posted via the Android Central App
  • Lol, so many butthurts crybaby Posted via the Android Central App
  • Don't be so hard on yourself
  • Pokémon Go articles bring more people to the site. More people on the site means more money. Also, after looking other sources I don't see much new Android news. If there is not a lot going on in the Android world, other than Pokémon, why not write about Pokémon? Posted via the Android Central App
  • Uhh note 7 buddy Posted via the Pokémon Central App
  • Yeah it's called the Note 7 and it should be out next month. That's about all that's out other rumors and leaks. Why report on those when they could be wrong? And there was an article about the Note 7 yesterday. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Still a lot to talk about don't be a Mcfail Posted via the Pokémon Central App
  • What else is there to talk about if it's not confirmed? I'm sure there is a place in the forums to talk about all the rumors and leaks you want. Posted via the Android Central App
  • The editors do posts about what they want to see and it sparks good discussion in the comments than the forums causing more open ended discussion. You're new here you will figure it out. Posted via the Pokémon Central App
  • Come on, you know as well as I do that "good discussion in the comments" is about as common as Mew. We mostly just shout at each other and occasionally crack a few jokes. Really though, AC posted an article about the note 7, but they do seem to try and avoid the rumour mill stuff. Posted via the Pokémon Central App
  • You're lack of faith in seasoned AC readers is disturbing. Posted via the Pokémon Central App
  • Maybe, but is it wrong? lol I like your sig, by the way. Very droll! Posted via the Pokémon Central App
  • You want a cute sig or a true sig? Posted via the Pokémon Central App
  • Ideally both... Posted via the Pokémon Central App
  • Pretty sure they wrote about the Note 7. One new article, and one updated one.
  • Trying to get off on a technicality there, Tom? Posted via the Pokémon Central App
  • Nope, just stating they did write about the Note 7 today, since there was news on it today. I'm willing to bet they'll talk more about it when it's announced and then released. And there will be people complaining then that all they talk about is Samsung.
  • Don't fabricate that people complain about Samsung articles people don't complain on this scale, also they don't post 50 of those a day. You're reaching a lot, Tom. Posted via the Pokémon Central App
  • It's the same for every phone release: "Samsung's gotta be paying you!" "Wow, is this Nexus central?!" "How can HTC even afford to pay you guys?!" And similar comments happen every. Damn. Time. There's a new release that AC covers. I've been on this site for four years now, and this isn't any different than the coverage for phone releases or trade events. You can complain that this is "just a game" but it isn't. There hasn't been anything this wildly popular in the mobile world before, and if AC can make money by catering to that market, good on them. If you don't like it, stop giving them clicks and ad revenue.
  • It is not 20 articles a day for a phone release. Are you just making stuff up or something? People don't comment that BS a lot and you Damn well know it. Posted via the Pokémon Central App
  • Exactly. Is it any wonder they don't pay attention? "Don't read the comments" is a thing for a reason. Posted via the Pokémon Central App
  • It's the number and quality of these articles that are annoying people. Half of them are worthless. As for "why not?" - because, as is shown in Jen's poll, AC is clearly ticking off a lot of their readers. Yes, I know few are going to follow through on their promises to leave and never come back, but that's beside the point. Willfully ******* off your users for either laughs or hits is just pathetic and counterproductive. I'm not going anywhere soon, because as of now, AC is still the best Android news site, but I have absolutely lost respect for Phil & Co. over the last few days. And that means I use more grains of salt when I read their content. That means I'm less inclined to take their word over another site's. That means that I'm less invested in their opinions across the board. That means that Phil is now on a list of arrogant d-bags that I never thought he would join. Posted via the Android Central App
  • You nailed it on the head m8 Posted via the Pokémon Central App
  • I do wonder if they expected that poll to turn out differently? Not that they're particularly reliable... Posted via the Pokémon Central App
  • By that logic they should switch to porn.
  • If there is no Android news then dont make any articles. I have visited many other tech sites and maybe have seen one or two articles on each site. Now 5 in a row and 20 in a day is just ludicrous. My local news app only has one haha. Seems like AC needs to clean house and get more creative. This crap has really got me wanting to just delete AC app and never visit their site again. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Really guy? http://i.imgur.com/HV4zJcz.png
  • Ok my numbers arent perfect haha Posted via the Android Central App
  • This is truly getting ridiculous. I get it, clicks pay the bills, but don't you all have some kind of standards? Posted via Nexus 6p
  • No. They got rid of their standards.
  • It's a joke to them. A sick joke Rodeo time, time to get er on down the road.
  • The last journalistic line of defense has been broken. Posted via the Pokémon Central App
  • Watch the video I posted. It's the dam truth. The sad truth. Rodeo time, time to get er on down the road.
  • Where it the video? Posted via the Pokémon Central App Nvm
  • Down below Rodeo time, time to get er on down the road.
  • Thanks Posted via the Pokémon Central App
  • It's sad that all the writers on this site are doing this on purpose just to prove a point. So much immaturity on this site now. I deleted my ac app and now I'm going to android police and android authority for my news first. Oh well, it probably won't affect them in any way but this is just ridiculous.
  • The worst part is how stubborn he is not once has he admitted he's wrong on any topic. He always has to be right. Posted via the Pokémon Central App
  • Yea, I don't understand this one bit. They think their the only tech site people read. Thank goodness for android police and others. It's so sad most writers here are acting like children.
  • Can the pokemon stories be over please? Joe
    Verizon s6, marshmallow
  • Watch this. It'll explain this Pokibutt thing perfectly. https://www.youtube.com/shared?ci=4cWD1KQiLMA Rodeo time, time to get er on down the road.
  • Good Ole propaganda!
  • God Ole ignoring the issue at hand and downplaying it as usual. Posted via the Pokémon Central App
  • Ahhhhhhhhhhh! Posted via the Android Central App
  • Cmon AC,everybody here came to the comments for the same reason I did aha. Start covering iPhone news or something when you're running low,I'm way more interested in the iPhone 7 than I am pokemon. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Oh my, it's still flooding the site. Not good. I almost feel like, at this point, they are engineering a meme to laugh about in the future/on podcasts. It's really not that funny guys. No, really.
  • Oh you bet your ass Phil will talk about how he is right and we are wrong and so will that VR guy. Posted via the Pokémon Central App
  • Exactly Rodeo time, time to get er on down the road
  • I was at the VA today visiting the old WW2 and Korean War vets. Talk about a breath of fresh air talking with people with actual common sense. It was a pleasure to visit these hero's. Yeah keep on Pokingmoninthebutt. Rodeo time, time to get er on down the road
  • Then be sure to delete any games and non-work related apps on your device. Social media apps probably should go, too, right? And then you're free to spend 6-8 hours, 7 days a week, talking to veterans at your local VA. No going to the movies or watching sports or having a drink with your buddies at a Sunday barbecue. I mean, it seems like you're opposed to anyone doing anything that might be considered a leisure activity so you probably shouldn't be doing any either. Or you and everyone else crying here can just relax, let people enjoy a silly game that isn't hurting any of you in any way at all (save for your inability to skip over articles on a website that DON'T interest you) and you can enjoy the things you want to do. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Seriously... Stop with all the Pokémon go stories... This is an ANDROID news site, not a mobile game fan site... I come here to read about technology that deals with Google and Android... Not some game company who made something with Pokémon... Have you see the last feed of stories? Back to freaking back stories about Pokémon go! Sure the game is awesome and fun and blah blah blah... But my God it's not THAT good of a game! Seriously! It's almost as if you guys are trying to ride the hype wagon to get as much views as possible.... It's getting to the point I'm just going to stop checking for a few months until all the Pokémon stories stop... Posted via the Android Central App
  • I can already see Malcolm Gladwell referencing this phenomenon in an upcoming book. Similar to "The Tipping Point." Game is a hit, floods social media, floods every forum, mentioned on nightly news, creates an identity and culture of it's own. Nintendo's stock soars. It's a runaway success. And it's annoying.
  • Watch this video https://www.youtube.com/shared?ci=Fcq46pWw5YY Rodeo time, time to get er on down the road
  • It's very simple. Don't click on an article you're not interested in. Wow! That was easy Posted via the Android Central App
  • We can all help stop it. Stop visiting the site as much, cut back to say 50%, then use an ad blocking browser. I have one browser on my phone with ad blocking enabled, Facebook use to be the only site, now this one is there as well.
  • Hi Guys.
    Just go to Android Police. Pokemon Go free. This is just ridiculous, unprofessional and just a straight up disgrace.
  • I have no complaints with the articles about Pokemon GO as long as I can take something away with each article. So far, so good. For those that aren't fans of this growing giant, us players mean no harm to the consistent news that AC is known for providing. They are simply covering the biggest story that is available. Posted via the Android Central App
  • The biggest story LoL Rodeo time, time to get er on down the road
  • Not black people getting killed or police getting killed but Pokibutt. Rodeo time, time to get er on down the road
  • But do you consider that Android News? Posted via the Android Central App
  • Yes, that is big, sad news that should be reported. But you complained for no Android related news. This is Android related, that is not. Posted via the Android Central App
  • 19 - 25,000 exp
    20 - 25,000 exp
    21 - 50,000 exp Forgot what I got for the rewards, but when I hit level 20, I remembered getting 10 Ultra balls
  • Most Pokemon articles. We need a Pokemon amendment gotdamn it. Posted via the Pokemon Central App
  • At level 20 you get ultra balls, and a screen full of other ****
  • Hi don't know if anyone said this yet but you unlock ultra balls at level 20 having an amazing to play pokemon go team yellow for life
  • Sorry after I post I saw that other guys said it first
  • Guys, if you haven't noticed pokemon go is extremely popular. You can't deny that. So, since it's popular they're making articles about it. You would all understand that if you weren't brain dead degenerates. It is incredibly simple. If you were a reporter would you make an article about note 7 which no one gives two ****'s about or the mobile game that made money faster than any mobile game in history? Go on, ponder that for awhile.
  • Why is everyone who doesn't play this game complaining? It is a good game. It doesn't affect you if someone plays a game on their phone, unless they are highly irresponsible. But stop the complaining. Complaining won't do any good
