Yeah, the sniping of Gyms does kind of suck.  I've lost out on a couple that way, but usually a sniper has a low level anyways, and it's just additional XP for fighting once more.  After experimenting at a couple gyms over the weekend, I can confirm that there IS elemental advantage and disadvantage.  Elemental advantage is indicated by "SUPER EFFECTIVE" in lieu of "NOT VERY EFFECTIVE."  

Also, you do need to double tap an item to use it.  For instance, if you accidentally click a Lucky Egg, or an Incense, it will float on the screen.  You can tap it to use it, or hit the X to cancel.  

As far as having Pokemon kicked out of gyms, your own team cannot kick them out.  Once you train at the Gym, and raise the prestige level, another platform opens up.  A gym will always rank the platforms in CP order, with highest at the top.  Teammates cannot remove lower CP pokemon from the Gym, that would only happen if an opposing player battled the gym, and lowered the prestige level.  In that case, the lowest CP Pokemon is removed.

I also heard that you can get coins immediately from gyms, but I don't think that's true.  To this point, the longest I've held a gym is about 18 hours, but I've never gotten anything but EXP.



Now, as I look back I see the crooked path that I had been set upon all those years before, leading me inexorably to this moment. I can still see her face in my mind's eye, poor dear Laura, such a sad tale is ours. A tale of heroes who strove to save humanity only to lose our own.

Yeah people on gamefaqs made fun of me for the double tapping thing.  The only explanation I can come up with is both times I had my phone charging while it happened.  And it's a non-apple cord which does cause problems - like fingerprint unlock won't usually work.  Because I did not touch it twice - I wasn't even intending to touch it once - just trying to delete some stupid raspberries!

You have to manually pick them up.  Go into the shop and click on the button on the top-right.  I've put my pokes in gyms all of twice since finding this out and it's worked immediately both times.

Really?!  Damn, I've missed out then.  I've been clicking everywhere in the Gym, in my Pokemon who's posted to the gym, in my journal... never thought to go into the shop.  Thanks for the tip!

Yeah it's a, uh, completely bonkers place to keep that function. And, like most P-Go things, absolutely not explained to the player at all.

Yeah, I lied.  Took a gym this morning!  Instinct will sneak up on you!

So yeah, got my 10 coins.  All I really care about is getting enough to buy the storage upgrades.  Really wish you could buy another infinite use incubator too!  But I have no interest in buying anything that's just temporary.

Been having a good run!  Got all 3 Eeveelutions now, and another powerful Eevee ready to turn into a second Vaporeon.  Just hatched a Pikachu this morning which was great since I hadn't seen one yet.  Up to 67 on my Pokedex.  I'm also having fun replacing all my garbage Pokemon with slightly more powerful versions I find, since I always have enough candy to keep evolving them.

Awesome Colin!  Yeah, Vaporeon really is a beast.  I've been noticing that even with NOT VERY EFFECTIVE, he still kicks ass because of his high HP.  I nabbed a bunch of Eevees this morning, and am working on getting a 2nd Vaporeon.  I caught a HUGE Tauros last night, evolved a monster Pidgeot, (1011 CP at evolution,) and hatched a 1007CP Magmar this morning.  I'm going to go steal some gyms after work.

Yeah Reido, you can increase your backpack for items, and storage for Pokemon.  Both upgrades are in the Shop.  Thanks again for the Defender reward tips.  I started claiming those last night; very happy for the additional coins and stardust!

Oh yeah, and suddenly Squirtles are popping up all over for me.

Yeah and honestly, you can just buy the two storage upgrades for $5 in coins if you want.  I just feel like I shouldn't spend money on a game like this since I spend so much on console games.  But if they released the next 100 pokemon and I didn't have that upgrade yet, I'd just pay for it.  Item storage honestly is just for convenience.  I have constant access to a pokestop at work, so don't really need it.

CP-wise the Pokemon I have that are only outmatched by my Flareon are a Pidgeot and Golbat - even the common ones can get pretty powerful.

I don't really need the pokemon space upgrade, since I only really keep one of everything I find and I can't imagine they wouldn't add more space once they add more pokemon... but for real I have to throw out almost all my healing items and revives multiple times a day, and over the course of this week (AKA the Week of No More Zubats) I've probably discarded 250 normal pokeballs.

Wait you assume they would just GIVE us more space with more Pokemon when you could pay them money for more space? :P

Just found out the countdown to get more coins when you take a gym is universal.  Thought maybe you could get 10 coins from a new gym right away.  Sucks cause I thought about taking one at lunch but there's no way it would stay mine for the next 15+ hours.  Oh well.

Considering just how many more Pokemon there are to add? Yes. Sue me, I'm an optimist.

Like, you would need to buy a ridiculous number of expansions or make room.

So, I always thought it was best to keep high CP pokemon.  Turns out, there are statistics completely invisible to the user, called "Individual Values."  There are calculators out there that helps determine what each pokemon's IV is, and % of perfection.  It's pretty important stuff for metagame playability.

Given the popularity of the game, I'm sure there will soon be changes that require payment to keep up.  I'd put my money on storage, and probably dialing back the pokeballs given at pokestops.

Yeah - couldn't care less about IVs.  I don't want to COMPETE, I just want to collect Pokemon.  So I'm just going for highest CP!

Once that raid function is rolled out, you might be a bit more interested in metagame competition!
