Up until today, the level cap in Pokemon GO remained the same. Achieving the maximum level was quite the achievement, and some players may not have ever hit it at all. Everyone plays at their own pace, which is one of the nice things about the pocket version of Pokemon. The level cap just got lifted with today’s GO Beyond Update

For players wondering how to get the Legacy 40 Challenge Timed Research, you need to hit level 40. You have until the end of the year to get these Timed Research tasks and rewards. After hitting level 40, these Timed Research tasks should become available for you to start. One fun exclusive item is the Gyarados Hat, which is the ultimate reward for entirely completing the research.
