An update to Pokemon Go will allow a Pokemon trainer to carry up to 6 Pokemon when he/she is training at a gym. Currently, one one Pokemon could be involved in such battles, which takes place when you are fighting against a gym that is controlled by your own team. Thanks to the update announced by Niantic, you will soon be able to bring as many Pokemon to gym training sessions as you can to gym battles.
And just for gym training, the CP of your stronger opponent will match the CP of your pocket monsters. This way, you can train against stronger competition, but not have to worry about getting overmatched. Once training is over, the CP numbers return to normal.
This is the second update announced by Niantic in two days. The other day, Niantiuc announced that players who receive medals for catching certain Pokemon like Kindler, Psychic and Gardener, will get catch bonuses which makes it easier to snag Pokemon of a related type. As Niantic said in its blog, "For example, as you reach a higher tier for the Kindler Medal, your bonus to catch Fire-type Pokemon such as Charmander, Vulpix, and Ponyta increases."
"As we continue to make improvements to Pokémon GO, we have made an enhancement to the Gym experience for Trainers of all levels. In an upcoming version of Pokémon GO, when training at a friendly Gym, Trainers will be able to bring six Pokémon to battle instead of one. In addition, the CP of the Pokémon you are training against may be temporarily adjusted lower during your training session to generally match your Pokémon’s battle capabilities.
No matter what your level, you can now have an impact on your team’s Gym. Walk with your Buddy Pokémon to that nearby landmark and show your Team Leader that you can battle with the best!"-Pokemon GO Team
Niantic hasn't said when the pair of updates will be available, so keep checking in. As soon as we know, we will pass the information along to you.
