• Niantic aims to revitalize Pokémon Go with revamped gyms and co-op raids

    3 monthes ago - By MobileSyrup

    In celebration of the game's anniversary, Pokémon Go is getting a major overhaul, according to Niantic . Before those hoping for player vs. player battles get too excited, unfortunately that much-desired feature still hasn't been added to the title.

    Here's what we know so far about the new Gyms, and the more interesting Raids system coming to live on top of them.

    Just about a year ago, Pokémon Go came out of nowhere and took over the world. If you lived in any sort of big city, you probably couldn't go a block without seeing a Go player sprint by, staring at their phone all the while. The hype inevitably died down, of course.

    A major new update is coming to Pokemon Go this summer, completely redesigning gyms and adding raid battles along with new items.
    Later this summer, gyms will no longer be based on Prestige. Instead, gyms will now only allow a maximum of six Pokemon, and only one of each type (so you'll no longer see gyms filled with nothing but Gyarados and Dragonite, as only one of each is allowed per gym).
    Instead of starting with the weakest Pokemon first, players will now battle Pokemon in the order they were placed in the gym. Gyms will also become places where you can get items, allowing you to spin...
