Use your own Pokémon to challenge Gyms claimed by other teams. With the Pokémon you’ve caught, engage in battle against the defending Pokémon at the Gym to claim control!
Battles are challenging and fun! Use your Pokémon’s two moves to battle the defending Pokémon. You can also dodge the defending Pokémon’s attacks by swiping left and right.
If the Gym’s Prestige is reduced to zero, the defending team loses control of the Gym, and you or another player can then take control of it by assigning a Pokémon to protect it.
You may have to battle the same Gym multiple times to fully defeat it.
