Pokemon Go Gym Guide – How to Enter, Train, Battle, Claim, Win & more



Pokémon Go is not just an app anymore; it is a mobile phenomenon. This game has got more attention than any other in recent times, and well, there’re both good and bad things to it. But let’s just focus on following the trend and here we are going to give you a quick Gym guide to help you get better at this.

How to find a Pokémon Go gym:

Look out for the colorful towers near and far – they’re usually located in places of interest or hubs of activity, and Pokemon is often visible at the top of the map icon. There will be a Pokemon sitting above them.

How to enter a Pokémon Go Gym:

Once you’ve literally taken yourself to the nearby point of interest, where the gym is situated, you can ‘enter’ it on your phone. To interact with the gyms, you have to be level five or above – not too difficult a feat if you’ve played around with catching ‘wild’ Pokemon.

What to do in a gym:

The first time you visit a gym, you’ll declare allegiance to one of the game’s three teams. Here your choice affects how your options across different gyms. Most gyms have already been claimed by a team, but there is still a small chance you’ll find a ‘blank’ one, which you can claim for yourself and your new team.

Gyms are, primarily, arenas for battling other trainers’ Pokemon. You can battle at both ‘friendly’ gyms and the gyms under the control of rival teams; the former will help reinforce your team’s gym by raising its ‘prestige’ points, while the latter will chip away at the enemy’s influence, inching it closer to being claimed by your team.

Which team to pick:

You can choose between red, blue and yellow teams – or ‘Valor’, ‘Mystic’ and ‘Instinct’ to give them their respective proper names. Each team has a legendary bird Pokemon for a mascot. Valor are represented by the fiery Moltres; Mystic are fronted by the icy Articuno; Instinct fly under the sigil of the electric Zapdos. Well hopefully, it doesn’t matter which team you pick.

Battling in Pokémon Go:

The essence of Pokemon battles is to make the opponent faint, by attacking it until its health reaches zero. It’s more of a free-for-all with the ability to dodge attacks by swiping on the screen at the right moment a notable new feature. Every Pokemon has either one or two ‘types’. Each type has a handful strengths and weaknesses against other types.

Well, this should give you a nice insight on how things work with Gym in Pokémon Go and battle around it. Let us know how far have you come in the game and what all have you captured.
