Leveling in Pokemon Go gives you items that will help you better play the game. Some of the items will improve at higher levels. For example, once you hit level 12 you'll be upgraded to a Greatball instead of a regular Pokeball. Though your bag has an item cap of 350, you can go over this item cap when receiving level rewards.

Leveling requires XP, which can be gained from a number of methods including: catching Pokemon, evolving Pokemon, visiting Pokestops and winning gym battles.
