Pokémon Go Gyms Are About To Get A Whole Lot Friendlier
This is pretty exciting news for beginners...
If you’re sick of having your ass handed to you everytime you enter a Pokémon gym, fear not, that’s about to change.
Pokémon Go creator Niantic has announced that it will be making its gyms more beginner-friendly.
At the moment gamers can only bring the one Pokémon to a friendly gym to get it trained up. Now Niantic has said that will be pushed up to allow for six Pokémon at a time. The result should mean much faster progression of many Pokémon in training, ready for battles.
It also sounds like the gym levels will be adapted to suit the individual entering for battle, so as not to leave newbs out. Niantic said in its blog post: “No matter what your level, you can now have an impact on your team’s gym,” referring to the adaptation of CP (combat power) levels to suit the fighter.
This is pretty exciting for beginners who can now get more involved and progress faster through the game. This combines with the recent announcement that catching Pokémon should be a lot easier too. You will also be able to get medals for catching multiple Pokémon of the same type. Once you have these medals that in turn will increase the chances of you catching more Pokémon of that type.
All these updates will roll out soon when Pokémon Go gets its next major update.
