Defend the Gym
Once a team has taken over a gym, it’s important to station a Pokemon there in order to defend it against other attacking players. After leaving the Pokemon at a gym, at this point a player’s job is over. Each gym that a Pokemon is protecting will earn players a daily “defender bonus,” which amounts to 10 Pokecoins roughly every 21 hours. For the more ambitious trainers out there, fans can protect up to 10 gyms at a time, which will net a cool 100 Pokecoins every day.
Given the long 21 hour wait-time for those Pokecoins, one will need to be holding onto those gyms for quite some time – hence why we stress on the importance of team work. Given Pokemon GO‘s huge popularity already, expect a good amount of resistance and failure before managing to get that Pokecoin stream flowing since there will undoubtedly be plenty of challengers trying to take over every gym.
Pokemon GO is now available for Android and iOS in select regions.
