This is the real badge for reaching level 40 in Pokémon Go. You won't see it for months.Reddit

We just wanted to share this picture of the coveted level 40 badge from Pokémon Go, since it will be months—maybe years, come to think of it—before any of us see it.

A Reddit user posted the screenshot last night saying he had used (undisclosed) software and other means to automate the leveling process. Even with all of that, it clearly took some work. Everyone's impressed, anyway.

Before dropping the mic, our new leader had a few choice words to share with the Pokémon Go community:

That last Level was even for me and my little bot a pain in the ass. 5 Milion XP - really? A total of 20 Milion XP was needed to hit the current maximum Level. I earned 280k XP per Hour on Average. I don´t play this game - i just wanted to see how far i can push with the given Tools. And i learned so much out of this.

We did too...We did too.
