Peace! Another week over, another event ended.
I finally got my highly-anticipated Houndoom (evolved from Houndour) and am still walking Larvitar. The end is near~~~
Tuesday I was rather sick (thanks to female problems and heat) and missed my daily PokéStop spin. I probably will skip on Sunday to turn back to my usual rhythm of SUnday = 7th day 😀
We got a new patch! Gyms look really different now and are somewhat PokéStops 😀
So before the patch the gyms were undergoing maintenance and any Pokémon being stocked in before that was kicked out *hoorah*
After they decided to push the new system – which might’ve been yesterday afternoon up to this morning, I don’t know – I was surprised how it looks like now. (First picture taken a few days before, the other two today…. but man this looks like we want to shoot rockets with the gyms now)
You can spin disks now at these PokéGyms – and you should!
- The first time you spin a disk at a Gym it will give you the Gym Batch plus items (cooldown as usual PokéStops is 5 minutes).
- The first spin per day will reward you with a special berry (didn’t see it in inventory but could use it on Pokémon at gym) and a Raid Pass.
- Spinning a disk in a gym that is occupied by your team grants a “Team Bonus” (+1 per Pokémon)
CP = Health and will be depleted by each fight until it hits 0 – then the monster will be kicked out of the gym. The berries help restore the CP/Health.
You will also receive a popup message in the app when your monster gets kicked out from a gym.
Besides that: You CAN NOT fight against your own Pokémon anymore!
They changed the interface as you can already see above but also for arrangement of the Pokémon in the gym – looks really nice (usually the hearts are displayed, my app showed a Network error so it didn’t load the hearts :D):
