    Someone has worked out that the current cap on trainer level is level 40.

    Does CP on pokemon cap out at any point? Or will you be able to catch much stronger pokemon at level 40 compared to say level 20?

    The CP of wild Pokemon caps out at level 30, while the actual CP of Pokemon caps at 40 (since CP is level based). So basically a level 40 will catch the same CP Pokemon as a level 30 but the level 40 will be able to train them up further.

    Does that mean the max CP at lv 30 is lower than the max CP at lv 40? Or are you saying that as your trainer level increases to lv 40, you can then achieve more of the maximum capped CP?

    He literally told you the exact answer....

    you can't catch higher-CP pokemon beyond level 30, but you can still train them up beyond the cap found at level 30, when you're level 30+

    Takes me like 35 minutes of walking to get 5 poke stops. Is that good or bad? There's no gyms in my area, have to travel a bit further.

    The max CP of wild Pokemon is the same at 30 and 40, but the max CP of the Pokemon you've caught is higher at 40. Max CP directly correlates with your level, so as you level up the max CP also increases.

    Generally yes but if you already have stronger Pokemon then it doesn't matter either way

    Had some good luck with eggs the last couple of days. Hatched Aerodactyl and Onyx from 10km eggs and (finally) got a Pikachu from a 2km egg.

    *Of course the 2km egg I hatched next was a Weedle. 😝

    I got a cp 197 mr mime in a 10 k egg today. Is he any good, and should I power him up, I got 27 candies when I got him and it only takes 1 candy and 600 stardust to power him up. Or is he not worth wasting the stardust on?
    Btw I'm lvl 11 and my highest cp pokemon is a 440 dorido.

    Save your Stardust. The amount needed to power him up will gradually increase, so you'll be able to power him up maybe 15 times at the most with the candy you have. 15x30(average cp increase)=450+197=647
    You'll get far stronger Pokemon than that when you level up more.*

    I wouldn't say he's rare, unsure if he still makes music though...

    But srs, Seel isn't that rare and it's evolution, Dewgong, isn't particularly strong either.
