Niantic has posted affirmation that the friend limit in Pokémon GO will be extended. This increment in the limit follows the declaration of friendship referrals, which offers rewards to new players, returning players as well as active players who carry those new and returning players to Pokémon GO.
It will be a complex system that we’ll get into soon, however this increment on the friends limit will be active even for the individuals who decide not to take an interest in the referral code system.
This has an effect on the forthcoming referral system as well as on how trainers will gather XP to step up.
A significant way that Pokémon GO players rake in colossal amounts of XP without a moment’s delay is by organizing Lucky Eggs with Friends as they hit Ultra and Best Friends, which will offer 100,000 XP and 200,000 XP respectively with an Egg on.
Presently, with 200 new slots opening on the Friends list, having the chance to Level 50 may not appear as daunting as it once did to a few.
