Pokemon Go: 5 Tips to Take Advantage of New Gym Training

Version 1.11.4 of Pokemon Go on iOS (or 0.41.2 for Android!) brings two big changes - earning medals to improve your capture chances, and the updated gym training system. Now you are able to  train with up to six Pokemon at once at a friendly Gym. So we're going to discuss the 5 tips to take advantage of this new updating system.

1.  Change Your Pokemon Names To Create Teams

Pokemon are organized by the name you give them and there are multiple ways you can easily organize the Pokemon you want to use to train at gyms. This only saves you a lot of scrolling, especially if you have a huge Pokedex, and by changing your Pokemon's names, you can reorganize so your chosen gym training team appears at the top of the list. Of course, you can also favorite the Pokemon you want, but many players use favorites to mark special high-CP Pokemon.


  • Change the name of your Pokemon with a ".name" / "0name" / "!!!name" etc.
  • These names will auto-arrange to the top of the list. Use separate symbols to create different teams for different uses.


Once you know how to rename and reorganize Pokemon, it's not a bad idea to establish a few teams.


2. Create Multiple Teams 


Once you've organized some Pokemon into teams, it's worthwhile to consider how you want to  deploy those Pokemon - there are three major teams we'll suggest:


  • Attacker / Defender Team: Pick your highest CP, high damage, best Pokemon for groups like this.
  • Prestige Team: Select 5 low-CP Pokemon and one high-CP to maximize your CP gain.


The prestige team is the most important one in this update - if you want to earn high prestige and level up gyms, you can do it easily with the right group of Pokemon.


3. Earning Fast Prestige 


It's very possible to earn between 1500-2000+ prestige per encounter with the right lay-out. While the prestige earned is based on the highest CP defender Pokemon, that's the only Pokemon CP you need to pay attention to. Max prestige is always earned when your attacking Pokemon are about 1/2 the CP of the defending Pokemon. The greatest benefit of the new team training system is that you can lose Pokemon and still gain plenty of prestige. 


4. Select a Full Team


Due to the way prestige is calculated, it's always a good idea to go into a gym battle with all six Pokemon. Even if you only need one Pokemon to train a gym, you should still bring 5 extra back-ups. Change the name of low CP Pokemon to names like "#Placeholder" to easily select the extra Pokemon. If they're low enough, you can also use them to shield if you plan on using candy to evolve / auto-revive, instead of wasting revive potions on junk Pokemon.


5. Save Your Super Moves

Now you can save your Charge Moves and use Quick Attacks to finish defender Pokemon. Don't waste Charge Moves anymore - defeat a low-HP Pokemon with Quick Attacks and keep your Charge Moves banked for later. Unleashing a Charge Move at the start of an encounter almost always guarantees an easy victory.
