    It's for the best, I guess. I'm sure mothers don't want their children fighting pokemon named every racist profanity you can think of.

    Found a Pikachu in Preston city centre today, was so excited. Used 3 Great Balls to no avail, then the bugger ran away. So frustrating! On the plus side I caught an Electabuzz I'm about to start trying to fight in gyms, but I'm still not 100% on how it works. Do I need to beat all the Pokémon in the gym to leave mine there, or just one?

    When you press on the gyms in the right hand side it will have something like 6625/8000. 6625 is like how much power the gym has and you have to try and get this to 0. When you battle the gym, you pick 6 pokemon to battle with and you have to defeat all of the pokemon that are defending the gym. When you do this, you'll get some xp at the end and it will tell you how much power the gym has lost (usually around 2000). So it takes a couple of goes to defeat the gym.

    If the gym is your colour you don't need to beat any of them as long as there's a free spot. If it's all taken then you should win a few times as it raises the prestige and allows more Pokemon in the gym.

    If gym is not your colour then you need to remove their prestige. When prestige goes down, the pokemon with lowest cp in the gym will be removed. So you need to fight the gym Pokemon until the prestige goes down enough. But you don't have to do it in one try, you can fight it as many times as you want, slowly taking it down

    Thanks rayquaza and devify Do you get Pokémon coins or any other sort of reward for defeating Pokémon in the gyms? Also, what's the benefit to me of lowering the prestige of a gym? Does it pay to be there when the number is very low, so I can potentially be the one to swap out one of the characters?

    You can collect coins every 21 hours. Per each Pokemon you have in a gym, you get 10 coins and 500 stardust. You also get some xp just for fighting.

    If you lower the prestige enough, you could take over the gym, meaning that's another Pokemon you can leave and more rewards

    Wait until the other 570 are rolled out. Then you won't have to regret releasing them too early
    That's a good point actually, thanks 😄.*

    (Although, minus a few of them - those extra Pokemon are dead to me haha). *

    Except if you want to GPS spoof, you have to go into your developer options and select the "Allow Mock GPS locations" option. If you do that, Pokemon Go won't fully load. It will load the game, but will say "GPS not found" and won't load gyms, stops or Pokemon.

    I keep hatching 2km eggs hoping for Pikachu or Charmander (or even Squirtle for the candies) but I keep getting Weedle or Caterpie 😟
    Chin up! Whilst you're leveling you want more of those candies anyway

    Why would we deliberately stop doing the most fun thing about this game, and risk getting banned in the process :confused:

    If you're just going to sit in your house and catch pokemon you might as well not play the game and just pretend you've caught them all
