Discoveries Candy XL

New XL Candy

  • You need 100 regular candies to make 1 XL candies (source). This is pretty steep and you should probably get XL Candy elsewhere.
  • Powering up Purified Pokémon costs slightly less than XL Candy, Shadow Pokémon much more. Powering up Shadow Pokémon beyond level 50 seems incredibly expensive.
  • Trade can reward XL Candy
  • Catching legendary bosses after raids can drop XL candy
  • Eggs hatch reward XL Candy. Early reports indicate that you get 16 XL per 5 km eggs and 24 XL candies per 10 km eggs.
  • Mystery Box can reward up to 18 XL Meltan Candy for 1 hour of activation
