Today, our Niantic friends revealed that the Gym PVP system is revamped. This is exiting since the Gym feature was kinda boring to all of us already aside from just taking it from some other teams, right? Trying to level up a gym was so expensive in pots consumption for such a little XP reward that even knowing that you can get good amount of Pokecoins it was meaningless.
Now, this new enhancement will allow all players, low level and high level, fight for a gym to keep it! This feature opens a new world for those casual and newer players to have better chances to get Pokecoins and of course to PVP, everybody loves PVP.
We will see more players trying to take Gyms to max level which will make us, higher levels, harder to take it and of course will allow all of us to keep more gyms for higher rewards.
I will have to talk to My Guild now because we will have to change our strategy from full attack to full defence maybe? Lets give it a try!
Here is what Niantic Updated on their website.
“Gym Training Just Got Easier…
As we continue to make improvements to Pokémon GO, we have made an enhancement to the Gym experience for Trainers of all levels. In an upcoming version of Pokémon GO, when training at a friendly Gym, Trainers will be able to bring six Pokémon to battle instead of one. In addition, the CP of the Pokémon you are training against may be temporarily adjusted lower during your training session to generally match your Pokémon’s battle capabilities.
No matter what your level, you can now have an impact on your team’s Gym. Walk with your Buddy Pokémon to that nearby landmark and show your Team Leader that you can battle with the best!
