How to control all Pokemon Gyms in your neighborhood


Pokemon Go uses the GPS on your phone to place you in its Pokemon world. On the main screen it is usually difficult to miss the gyms - they're the biggest icons on your map.

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 prestige, inching it closer to being claimed by your team.


These are some nice tips in controlling all the Pokémon Go Gyms in your neighborhood.

Know which pokémon are better at attacking: If you want to attack, use pokémon like Snorlax, Dragonite, Lapras, Vaporeon (even after the patch), Arcanine, and Exeggutor.

Choose a gym with low foot traffic: Some gyms are constantly under attack and switching hands every five minutes. Go for less busy gyms that will let you attack and leave defenders in peace.

Choose and Organize your pokémon before a battle: Set the attack order of your pokémon from lowest CP to highest CP. You don’t want to burn out your strongest pokémon right off the bat. Also, take into effect each of their typings so each one of your pokémon will be effective at some point in the battle.

Attack with friends: Pokémon Go is made to be played with friends and other trainers you might find out and about. If a gym is too tough, try attacking it simultaneously with someone on the same team.

Leave your best defender behind: The best defenders to place in an empty gym usually have the most health, so they can last longer against attackers. The best defenders are Lapras, Poliwrath, Dragonite, Snorlax, Exeggutor, and Slowbro in that order.

Keep your best defender out of the battle: When you clear out a gym, you have to stick a pokémon in there quickly or someone else will. That’s why it’s best to keep your defender out of your battles and at full health. A defender has to have full health to get placed, and the time it takes to heal a pokémon is just long enough for someone else to swoop in and steal your victory.
