In addition to regular raids, create NPC gym raid battles. With NPC battles, you would throw in a raid pass, battle against 6 powered up pokémon that share the same typing as a current tier 3 to 5 raid boss and if you win you get raid rewards and the opportunity to catch at least one of them of your choosing. These raids would benefit trainers who love to battle fully motivated gyms and those solo trainers (lobby can hold up to 5) missing hot tier 4 and 5 raids because they don’t have the ability to raid with larger/stronger groups because they don’t have the luxury of playing with them since they’re the only one(s) left playing Pokémon Go in their area or can’t get their mom to hunt down raids with the group they want to tag along with.
New rule. If a pokémon has been in a gym for more than a week it will automatically be sent back to the trainer with coins from any day they didn’t collect.
Why? this is to prevent trainers from hogging gyms for themselves and to ensure other trainers who have successfully defended the gym to get their rewards.
BECOME A GYM LEADER. Earn a stamp each day by battling 10x a day for a week and you’ll get the opportunity to become a gym leader from one of your gold gyms each week. This victory will allow you to run one gym for 3 days, place 6 unique pokémon of your own that will remain fully motivated for other trainers of all three teams to battle, earn XP, stardust and even up to 25 coins for battling. The gym will be purple, nicknamed by you for 3 those 3 days and automatically receive pokécoins each day.
Allow for the the 1st trainer who gains gym control to stay in one gym for the maximum time (about 8.20hrs) needed to collect their 50 coins. Rule becomes null and void to anyone who drops after the trainer who placed a pokémon in 1st. That means if someone has been in from 8am to 5:25pm, or even a week for example, anyone else who drops a pokémon after them will not be subjected to the rule stated earlier leaving the opposing team the ability to seize the gym. Unless of course the defenders get berry fed.
Why? Because there are trainers out there who shave their team member’s out of a gym for their own personal gain and there are others who hog gyms all for themselves and prevent others from reaping the benefits of earning coins. No one owns a gym. No one.
- A gym can only be fought by an opposing team within 8.20hrs of it being seized by the 1st trainer. In addition to this, the motivation system will be inactive during that time period. Afterwards the motivation system will be active once more and the gym will be able to be seized.
