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.


Use Teamwork

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.
