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.
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.
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.
