Training gyms in Pokemon GO is a pretty big part of the game. You pick your best Pokemon and fight against friendly gyms to make it stronger. Then, you can slap your own Pokemon into it and get your free coins. However, as the game’s gone on, gyms have been filled with very high CP Pokemon. This stops newer players with participating. There’s a new update coming up, though, that aims to change that.
There are some apparent benefits to the change. People who haven’t power trained 24/7 now have a chance to actually get involved with their gyms. However, there are a few concerns about it. The biggest one is that pretty much anyone at any time can fully level a gym to level 10 without restriction. There’s absolutely no benefit of having high level Pokemon when you’re training your own gym. But, we’ll see how it all goes when the update lands.
