How to become a Gym Master?

Are you confused when you first went Pokemon hunting around your neighborhood? Tracking down, finding and catching Pokemon is really not that tricky and just need some proper technique done just right in order to get past the guessing game you play just to find a Pokemon Pikachu in your backyard. Here’s a Pokemon wiki of techniques to consider.

 

How to Control a Gym

First, you have to lower an enemy Gym’s Prestige in order to become a Gym leader. Find the right Gym to challenge, obviously the one you and your team can easily put down. Make sure your Pokemon have equal or higher Combat Power or CP to even have a good chance of winning.

As you defeat the trainers one by one of the gym that you want to take over, you will earn more XP and you also lower the gym’s prestige. The losing trainers get kicked out of the gym. So if you defeated all trainers on all of the battles, you get kicked out. Unless you get the gym’s prestige down to zero and make it neutral. Claim it first and you become the leader.

Gym Battle Basics

Unlike the turn-based battles of other Pokemon games, Pokemon Go features short, fast battles that require a lot of tapping.  

These real time battles are simple. Tap the enemy Pokemon to have your Pokemon perform its basic attack, and swipe left and right to dodge enemy attacks. As you tap to perform basic attacks, your Pokemon’s Special Attack bar(s) will charge. After the blue meter is filled, press down on the enemy Pokemon for a few seconds and your Pokemon will perform the special attack.

Gym Training

In addition to conquering enemy gyms, you can also train at friendly gyms. This doesn’t mean training your Pokemon, but training your gym’s Prestige. Doing so will allow you to raise the gym’s level and allow other trainers from your team join the gym.

Below is a guide to the Prestige level. The Minimum Prestige points indicates how many points the Gym needs to have to reach that level.

Gym Level     Pokemon     Minimum Prestige Points
Level 1            1                    0       
Level 2           2                    2,000
Level 3           3                    4,000
Level 4           4                    8,000
Level 5           5                    12,000
Level 6          6                    16,000
Level 7           7                   20,000
Level 8          8                   30,00
Level 9          9                   40,000
Level 10      10                    50,000

Your trainer will also gain experience from Training at a gym. To train at a gym, get in range of and tap on a friendly gym. Then click the icon in the bottom right of the gym menu and you’ll be able to choose one of your Pokemon to train with.

If your Pokemon loses while fighting a friendly Pokemon, it will not faint, but it will drop to 1 HP.

Benefits on Joining Gyms

The only way to make PokeCoins in Pokemon Go is by controlling gyms. Every 24 hours you can collect a bonus for being a gym member. This isn’t only for the gym leader, so you’ll want to make sure you have as many Pokemon as possible in gyms.

For every one Pokemon you have stationed at a gym, you’ll earn 500 Stardust and 10 PokeCoins. This amount does not change for Gym Leaders. You can collect this bonus in the Shop page by tapping the shield in the top right corner of the screen.

Healing Your Pokemon

The only way to heal and revive your Pokemon after battle is with your collected Potions and Revives. If you plan on challenging a gym multiple times to drain its Prestige, be sure to take a minute and heal your best Pokemon. 

To heal and revive Pokemon, go to your Items and tap the item you want to use. It’ll take you to a menu with your injured Pokemon. There you can choose which ones to heal.

If you’re close to claiming a gym, try to keep the Pokemon you want to place in the gym out of battle if you’re low on healing items or revives. If it gets knocked out in battle and you’re out of revives, you won’t be able to station it in the gym. 

If you’re training at a friendly gym, your Pokemon will take damage, but they won’t faint if they lose. 

There is currently no way to recover or heal Pokemon without using items.
