With this trick you can power up your Pokemon one extra time to make it even stronger!
Players have reported new data that can help you make your newly evolved Pokemon a tad bit stronger at your trainer level.
Basically when you evolve your Pokemon, right after evolution you just power it up all the way to the max. At your trainer level, say level 27 your max CP for a Gyarados would be 2189CP while powering costs 4500 dust. However when you use this trick it allowed trainers to overpower this obtaining a Gyarados with 2211 CP at level 27.
Here’s a report about it on reddit by user ArcturusMajor
” I did some testing on a level 25 account with a bunch of Magikarp candies and dust. My first Gyarados I evolved was powered up as much as possible and then I stopped once I thought I was getting close to the level cap (I say this becuase the bar, CP and HP would continuously reset after power ups and cause the Pokemon to look as though it hadn’t been powered up). Little did I know I had exceeded the level cap for my player level. So I did the same process for the second Gyarados but stopped earlier and then returned to power it up after leaving its page. I noticed that once I finished powering it up the dust required for each Gyarado’s next level was different and I couldn’t power up either any more. So I repeated the process 2 more times to make sure it wasn’t a one time bug and I even tested it out with a friend who evolved and powered up a Parasect in front of me to above his Pokemon’s cap for his level. You can see in the link there are two Gyarados with greyed out power up bars with different dust requirements. I dont know if I had continued to power up my first Gyarados if the others that followed it with this method would also have been able to go further or if the bug is capped at just 1 additional power up.
I should also mention that Gyarados was new in the Pokedex but I dont know if that would factor into this bug.
It would be interesting to know if you could somehow get a Pokemon to above it’s max potential by giving it an additional power up it shouldn’t be able to receive with this bug.

TL;DR If you evolve and then right away power up a Pokemon to max without leaving that Pokemon’s page, you will be able to power it up to a higher level than your other max level Pokemon”
