Been losing alot of gym battles lately? Have you been getting your ass kicked by the gym leaders alot? Don’t worry, that has happen to me too. in fact, on my first gym battle, I didn’t even know you can dodge during the battle just by swiping your pokemon to the left or right. At least the people who made the game could have done is to add the controls of the battle in the introduction.
Gyms are really important when it comes to leveling up. Every time you win a battle, you will get 500 XP which can help those that are at a lower level. Not only that but you can claim that gym as your own, marking your territory as whichever team you are.Let me show you a three ways how you can win gym battles:
Just as simple as dodging can determine between losing or winning. If you want to increase your chances of winning, learn to dodge. In case you don’t know how to, during the battle, all you have to do is to swipe either to the left or right and your pokemon will move to that chosen direction. The most important aspect of dodging is that you must know WHEN to Dodge. It takes practice but if you can Dodge in the right moment when your opponent attacks, you will be fine.
Do you remember in Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith where sidious start order 66 and the clone troopers gang up on the Jedi knights and killed them? What about when Ryu and Ken team up against Bison in the Street Fighter 2 movie? Well that is exactly what I am suggesting. If you are with a friend, girlfriend,boyfriend, brother or sister, the both of you can team up and take on the gym. For example, I was spending my day with my baby girl playing Pokemon Go, while we were playing, I decided to take on a gym that was close by even tho my girl was at a higher level then I am. She joined me and we both team up to take over the gym. We took over it easily and gain alot of experience since we battled the gym 3 times till it was empty and I let my girl take it since she was a great help. It could be unfair for some people but who cares, just as long as you are happy that you took over the gym with the help of your love ones. Bottom line, if you want to win a gym battle easily: Win by outnumbering it. Gang up on the gym with your friends and you will win.
3. Get Stronger Pokemon
I know what you are thinking, “but Legion, I already know that, its obvious”. Believe or not, some people forget this. How in the hell are you going to win a Pokemon Go gym battle if your at level 1 and with weak pokemon. The only way to get your Pokemon stronger is to level up, capture higher CP pokemon, evolving them, and powering them up. To power them up, you have to keep capturing pokemon, any weak CP pokemon or pokemon that you already have, just transfer them to get candy. Once you have a higher CP pokemon and you are at a stronger level, it will be much easier for you to take on the gym.
I hope you have learned from this article and you used this knowledge to your advantage, some of it is maybe common sense but it does play a role between losing and winning a gym battle. Be safe out there when you play the game and I hope you captured all the Pokemon you wanted.
Catch them all guys,
