Pokemon Go Candy Hack: Before you, or your Pokemon, become proficient at Pokemon Go, you will need to devote some time to it. The developers have been kind enough to include ways to speed up the process.
Rare Candies, a special item you can receive in the game, can assist you in boosting your Pokemon to greater heights. Do you want to know where to find some of these delicious treats? Continue reading!
As a live-service game, Pokemon Go is constantly changing! This article has been updated to ensure that you can always obtain more Candies when you need them.
What Is Rare Candy In Pokemon Go?
Pokemon Go allows players to “power up” their Pokemon by feeding them Candy. It is important to note that each evolutionary line of Pokemon has its own type of candy; for instance, Pikachu Candies are used to power up Pichus, Pikachus, and Raichus, but not any other Pokemon. As you catch Pokemon, trade excess Pokemon to the Professor, and/or walk with your Pokemon as your companion, you can obtain Candy (usually).
Rare Candy functions as a wildcard – it can be turned into Candy for any type of Pokemon. Since you cannot easily obtain Candy for legendary and mythical Pokemon through the first two methods, it is an incredibly valuable item. As a result, you would have to walk the Pokemon to find Candy, and these rare Pokemon require 20 kilometers of walking before finding a single Candy (as opposed to one, three, or five kilometers for other species). It is obvious that Rare Candy is a much shorter route.
How Do You Get Rare Candy In Pokemon Go?
1. As A Reward For Defeating A Raid Boss
A Raid Boss Battle takes place in Gyms in the Pokemon Go overworld. They vary in difficulty, so some are suitable for solo exploration while others require a large group. Check out our guide on how to deal with these battles for more information!
When you defeat the boss, you will receive a certain amount of experience points (based on the difficulty) and a few items as a reward. Even though Rare Candy is not guaranteed every time you defeat a Raid Boss, it is one of only eight possible rewards.
2. As A Reward For Completing Certain Research Tasks
The completion of research tasks, whether they are Field Research, Special Research, or Event Research, may provide Rare Candy.
Head over to the Silph Road to see whether Field Research Tasks are available this month that provide Rare Candy. They maintain an up-to-date list of all available tasks as well as their possible rewards. After that, if you are determined enough, all you have to do is camp near a Pokestop, spin it to get new tasks, delete the ones that do not provide Rare Candy, and repeat the process.
Due to Pokemon Go’s full awareness of how valuable Rare Candy is, the tasks that provide it are generally more challenging.
3. As A Reward For Winning In The Battle League

6. As A Reward For Battling Other Trainers
It is important to note that this is not the same as battling other trainers in the Go Battle League. A reward will be awarded three times a day for battling other trainers independently, by hitting the ‘Battle’ button in their Friend summary or by scanning one another’s QR codes. There is a 15 percent chance of receiving a Rare Candy each time you play these three times.
What Is Rare Candy XL In Pokemon Go?
As part of a large update, Pokemon Go raised the player level cap from 40 to 50. This meant that all of the player’s Pokemon could have higher CPs than ever before, since the maximum CP is determined by the player’s level. In order to power up your Pokemon past the level 40 CP cap, you will need a special kind of candy known as Candy XL.
Thus, Rare Candy XL can be converted into any kind of Candy XL, enabling you to evolve your Pokemon beyond level 40.
How Do You Get Rare Candy XL In Pokemon Go?
In contrast to normal Rare Candy, Rare Candy XL is a limited resource. As of this writing, there are only a limited number of them that can be acquired in the game.
You will be able to obtain 31 Rare Candies XL in total, and these can be obtained in two ways:
- In some cases, rewards are earned as a result of leveling up between levels 40 and 50
- As you progress through levels 43, 45, 48, and 50, you will be given access to Special Research missions, which reward Rare Candies XL once they are completed
