Recently there has been something a trainer has noticed and has reported it on Reddit’s The Silph Road, Pokestops are now turning into Gyms is now a thing.

There have been reports of Gyms turning into Pokestops turning into gyms in the past, especially in areas with many complaints such as cemeteries.

However, now there seems to be reports of the opposite happening un the US, with a lone Pokestop, which has minimal Pokestops surrounding it, is now a gym.

Obviously this has not been seen very often and that was made evident when it was posted on Reddit, with no one else witnessing this either.

But why is this happening? Is it a new gym rework? Is it a request from someone? If it is in fact a request from someone then I love the possibility of people being able to request Pokestops into gyms, then I like it.

There is a Pokestop right outside my house and if that was to be turned into a gym, I’d love this game even more than I already do. But the again there is another option, is it a gym reword Niantic is currently working on?

It’s doubtful this is a gym rework as there is no official announcement from Niantic, and this if it was a gym reword then there would have been something mentioned by the creators at some point before it began to be rolled out.

So at the moment it is unclear what this Pokestop turning into a gym means, all we know for now is that it has happened, and most likely has happened elsewhere as well.

So if you have seen any Poekstops being turned into gyms then please let us know in the comments below.
