Pokemon Go: What are gyms?Ready to take over a gym? Here's what you need to know about training and battling first.
Gyms are where you can go to train or battle other Pok��mon. If the gym is owned by your same team color, you can take your Pok��monthere to train. It will level up the prestige points of the gym, as well as help your own Pok��mon. If you encounter a gym owned by a different colored team, you can battle for control of that gym. And yes, you have to travel to the gym in real life. Once you enter a battle against another Pokemon, you can tap to attack or swipe to dodge. When your special meter is full, you can press and hold to use your special attack. [MUSIC] If you win your battles and you wanna claim the gym for your team, you need to leave one of your Pokemon behind to guard it. [MUSIC] Most gyms are by some sort of landmark. We wanted to show you ours but unfortunately, security was not so keen on that so we're down here in the dungeon. [MUSIC]
