Acquisition

In Pokémon Sword and Shield, Exp. Candy is primarily available as rewards for completing Max Raid Battles, with larger Exp. Candy being available from higher-ranked Max Raid Battles—Exp. Candy XL is exclusive to 5★ raids. Exp. Candy is also available from a Hiker in the Wild Area for 100 Watts. Exp. Candy is also a possible reward at the Battle Café.

In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Exp. Candy can be bought from a vendor at Jubilife Village as well as in the wild. Alpha Pokémon and noble Pokémon can also drop Exp. Candy when they are defeated.

Analysis

For example, for a Pokémon in the Medium Fast experience group (the most common experience group):

  • An Exp. Candy XS would bring a level 1 Pokémon up to level 4, a level 5 Pokémon up to level 6, and a level 99 Pokémon about 0.3% of the way to level 100.
  • An Exp. Candy S would bring a level 1 Pokémon up to level 9, a level 15 Pokémon up to level 16, and a level 99 Pokémon about 3% of the way to level 100.
  • An Exp. Candy M would bring a level 1 Pokémon up to level 14, a level 31 Pokémon up to level 32, and a level 99 Pokémon about 10% of the way to level 100.
  • An Exp. Candy L would bring a level 1 Pokémon up to level 21, a level 57 Pokémon up to level 58, and a level 99 Pokémon about 34% of the way to level 100.
  • An Exp. Candy XL would bring a level 1 Pokémon up to level 31, and a level 99 Pokémon up to level 100.

The number of Exp. Candies XL needed to bring a level 1 Pokémon to level 100 depends on the experience group the Pokémon is in:

  • Erratic: 20
  • Fast: 27
  • Medium Fast: 34
  • Medium Slow: 36
  • Slow: 42
  • Fluctuating: 55
