    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
    Thanks! I stopped at 4 gyms on the way home from work and took them all over! They all got kicked out before the end of the night but hopefully I got some XP from it, and I got 40 coins... It's going to take a while before I can afford anything with coins at this rate!

    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
    Yeh, I agree, I think I'd get bored with the game if I could just sit at home and do it. Takes away the whole point of the game

    Unfortunately not but the server might be overloaded which might be why the app is not letting you log in. How long have you had the issue?

    What do you mean 'trashed'? You can't exactly delete it. Or did you just use it by mistake?

    I have another dumbass n00b question:

    Is it better to power up pokemon to the maximum and then evolve them or vice versa (or does it not make any difference)? (I'd assume the former?)

    It's better to save up the stardust and not use any; just mass evolve with a magic egg to level up quickly.

    Once you hit level ~20 then start to level them up. Since the higher level you are the high CP pokemon you tend to catch, therefore those higher CP pokemon you caught will make your *****y level 10 powered up Pokemon which you spent all your stardust on redundant.
