In an update from Niantic, gym training in Pokémon GO is about to become a lot easier. This is an attempt to level the playing for new players.
In a post to the website, the Pokémon GO team said:
As we continue to make improvements to Pokémon GO, we have made an enhancement to the Gym experience for Trainers of all levels. In an upcoming version of Pokémon GO, when training at a friendly Gym, Trainers will be able to bring six Pokémon to battle instead of one. In addition, the CP of the Pokémon you are training against may be temporarily adjusted lower during your training session to generally match your Pokémon’s battle capabilities.
No matter what your level, you can now have an impact on your team’s Gym. Walk with your Buddy Pokémon to that nearby landmark and show your Team Leader that you can battle with the best!
Honestly, this is a great idea. It seems that Niantic is actually making good moves again. I might just log back on. Might.
