Raids!

As of last night, raids are now available to players 25 and up, and at a "wide variety of gyms" throughout the world. I've got two gyms in map-sight of home; one of them has a level one raid this hour, and the other has a level four raid coming up in a bit over an hour. Hopefully an achievable raid comes soon to a gym near you!

*edit* ha, and the third gym that's just slightly out of sight has.a level three raid in an hour and a half.

*edit 2* and now the first gym has a raid back up again, level two. So I'm feeling pretty good about the frequency.*

blathering about my suburban raid experience thus far )

Iiiiiiiiinteresting!

I like the new battle pre screen, and the animation of fights.

New battle scoring on the one hand slows things down (you eat away at the defenders will to fight rather than 1000 points per win) on the other hand I like how the "injured" pokemon gets weaker. Also having revive and health available inside the gym interface

Winning a gym = getting a badge, but just claiming a gym slot does not, and nor does spinning a gym picture, which is what the text suggests.

No sign of coins for having pokemon on a gym...

How is everyone else getting on?

So, after playing this game for a while, you've probably noticed that it doesn't come with complete instructions. In fact, it seems like it was pretty much designed for you to figure things out on your own or by talking to other people. (Hence why this community was created!)

One of the things that keeps coming up in the free chats are gym battles. And yes, this is definitely one area where some instructions probably would have been useful. Since that's clearly not the case, I thought it'd be helpful to share tips & advice re: gym battles here!

The main thing to know about gym battles in PokeGo is that they're not turn-based. Once you see "Go!" on the screen, start hitting right away. Last pokémon standing wins.

The other thing to remember is don't be intimidated! With practice, persistence, and patience, you can still knock down that high level gym with strong defenders. Promise!

Some tips that have helped me along the way )

What other tips and advice do you have?
