It has recently been reported that Niantic are working on revamping their gyms throughout the game however, what does this mean for all the Pokémon currently in gyms?
If Niantic is to update all their gyms it may actually make sense to kick out all Pokémon within them, in order to start everything a fresh at the same time.
It wouldn’t be much of a revamp if nothing changed would it? The only issue is for players who have been defending gyms for a long period of time, will have to lose their hard work.
Yes booting Pokémon from gyms can make the revamp more successful, despite it being incredibly frustrating for trainers with Pokémon currently in gyms.
Another reason why this theory, which appeared on the Pokémon GO forum on Reddit’s The Silph Road, is so plausible is because if Niantic are to kick our all-current Pokémon, it may also increase the amount of active user again.
Although, I doubt it will increase activity for long, as the players currently dominating will once again reclaim their top spots, eventually.
At the end of the day this revamp should make the whole gym network more exciting for players, even if all your Pokémon are temporarily removed from their current positions.
Obviously this is also unconfirmed and is just a theory however; this theory does make sense and could be a serious possibility.
Are you looking forward to the gym revamp? Do you think Niantic will kick-out all current Pokémon in gyms when the revamp arrives? Please let us know what you think in the comments below.
