Last night, the player known as FleeceKing live-streamed the moment he reached the max level 50. Marking the moment, he shouted “This is a moment in history! Right? You’ve got like Martin Luther King, you know, ‘I’ve got a dream’ and then you’ve got FleeceKing in 2021 saying ‘I’ve got a Level  baby, let’s go!”
According to Hype Beast, to reach Pokémon GO level 50, “trainers must acquire five Legendary Pokémon, make 999 excellent throws and defeat three Team Go Rocket Leaders using Pokémon with just 2,500 CP or less. “
In the process of rising to the max level, Fleece King caught nearly eight hundred thousand Pokémon and has walked over twenty thousand kilometers. For context, to walk from London to Sydney is only about seventeen thousand kilometers.
The self-professed “Pokémon Go enthusiast from Sydney Australia” with “Over 700 million XP. Over 700k catches.” was quickly followed to the accolade by another trainer, Lauren Bertoni. So now we have to wait for another update and see who goes further. Level 60 anyone?
