Pokemon GO is catching on like wildfire, but mastering the mechanics of Gym battling is a little tough. Here’s on guide on how to win battles and be the Gym leader in your town.
The actual mechanics of fighting is the aspect that will be new to most players, so here is a breakdown of tips…
- Click the screen to use the Pokemon’s primary attack. Click it constantly until it’s time to use the Pokemon’s second ability or a Dodge.
- Keep an eye on the bar under your Pokemon’s health that is filling up during the fight.
- When the bar is full, long press the screen to use your Pokemon’s second ability. This is like a cool down, so don’t ignore it. It’s usually very powerful and valuable. Each of these attacks consumes one blue block from the power bar.
- When being attacked, swipe left or right to perform a Dodge. It’s very easy to miss this, so make sure this part of the fight isn’t ignored. It will make a huge difference when Pokemon start dodging attacks and fights will seem much more winnable.

Here’s the deal: the smaller that ring is, the more likely you are to capture that Pokémon. Throwing your Pokéball carefully is important, as you don’t want to waste a bunch of them whiffing shots.
