So I was just out restocking on items and discovered some places where I couldn't get them, because the pokestop I was going for had become a (currently disabled) gym. Of course once the updates hit and we can spin gyms, this will be all for the better. Meanwhile, I checked out a few local hot spots and estimate that about 10% of existing pokestop locations have converted to gyms. Now that only six people will be able to get on a gym at once, more is certainly welcome!

Spawn points are a little harder to pin down, but I'm pretty sure new spawns have been added as well. I'm very familiar with the possible points in my neighborhood, and just saw quite a few spawns at new locations. Particularly noticeable was the fact that I got several spawn smack in the middle of the road, which almost never happened before and I thought was a no-no to keep kids from wandering into the street (not that you can't reach them from the sidewalk). I almost wonder if someone at Niantic forgot to run a not_on_roads filter when generating a new batch of points... we'll have to see if they stick around.

That's really interesting! I haven't noticed any new gyms yet but my sample size is small. There was definitely a new spawn point, though.

I'm pretty sure that we've had some new/changed spawn sites in my neighbourhood - the walk into work this morning was full of small surprises with some pokestops about to become gyms and spawn points not at all where I was expecting them to be. Which was fun :)

I noticed, specifically because the library where I work is one of the pokestops that turned into gyms. I've spotted one other so far, but I haven't ventured far from my home/work route since this happened.

I also noticed more pikachus around, but that might be because we've had a series of nasty storms come past lately.
