Pokemon Go Gyms Set To Be Closing Temporarily Due To Remodelling

Pokemon Go Gyms Set To Be Closing Temporarily Due To Remodelling

The announcment comes from the offcial "Pokemon GO" support website with a banner saying "Heads up".

Pokemon GO will soon have an update that may possibly add a new multiplayer feature to the game. Apparently, they are correcting this aspect of the game and will make it more like a cooperative effort by two or more gamers playing the game at the same time.

However, it is believed that Niantic might be giving away some nifty items exclusive to "Pokemon GO Fest" attendees and even give them the chance to capture some rare monsters during the event.

Earlier today we reported that Pokemon Go's gym rework was beginning, and there's no time wasted here - this same day, the first part of this major update to Pokemon Go will begin rolling out worldwide, adjusting how gyms play and what players can do at them.

We've got all the details listed in an easy-to-digest format below - so have at it!

According to the official announcement that was published, any Pokemon that is assigned to the Gym will be returned to the players. This could be about time to draw once again the Pokémon GO fad. Gyms, though, are about to get more accessible, and you'll soon be able to team up with friends to go on raids against mega-powerful Pokemon.

The Prestige system of Gyms has been scrapped, with all Gyms allowing a maximum of six defenders going forward, and you'll also earn bronze, silver, and gold badges at each Gym you fight at.

During E3 last week, I got to try out a raid, and while I can see the appeal of endgame content in Pokemon Go, the whole thing was a bit too chaotic for my tastes. Here's what to expect in the coming weeks once the gym-related dust has settled... These are timed in-game events that'll temporarily replace a regular gym for a limited time.
