    Gym sniping in Pokemon GO

    The new update is targeting the problem many trainers wanted fixed, gym sniping. Gyms are special points of interest found throughout the world. You can capture a Gym for your Team and battle the Pokemon of rival Teams there. Gyms can be challenged by multiple Trainers at the same time.

    To those who are not familiar with gym sniping term – it happens when someone battles a rival gym and after defeating the gym another trainer quickly snatches the gym away. The newest update will now give trainers who beat a rival gym more time to place one of their own Pokemon. During this extra time only the trainer who too the gym will be able to place Pokemon on the gym.

    The second change regarding gym battles is the amount of prestige given when you beat a rival gym member. Niantic is increasing the number of prestige that is lost when a member of the rival gym is beaten. That means that gyms can be taken down much quicker than before. We do not know how much prestige will be lost in this moment.

    A third change is the amount of prestige that you gain from friendly gyms. This update is essentially the opposite from the previous change, as now you will receive less prestige when battling a friendly gym.

    This will mean that it will take longer to level up a gym to the to level 10.
