Is there gym etiquette?


#181

A post was split to a new topic: Taking down themed gyms


#182

Gym etiquette for me means if somebody’s taking down a gym and I join the take-down late, I won’t try to race the other to get one of my defenders in before theirs. I try to gauge which team did the majority of the take-down and have that team be the new defenders.

I was just asked through text if I could stop riding through town for a couple of days me and my brothers usually take over a part of town where they live I’ll hit it in the evening my older brother will hit it in the morning my little brother will hit it about 3 a.m. and we were asked if we could stop for a few days

If these are the same people that won’t raid with you, tell them to stick it where the sun doesn’t shine. It’s all part of the game.


#185

Naw there New players in town but thay are yellow team so thay don’t matter no one like yellow team in town


#186

The yellow players like to complain here too.


#187

I know but did not want to say that but we all know what it is


#188

It happened that one yellow player swept thru several blue gyms on the same route, but not red gyms


#189

We never let yellow stay in gyms for more than a few hours sounds messed up now that I say it out loud but still they’re new

Since I read this post and have known that it takes at least 8hours to gain 50coins, I never take down gyms held by Blue and Yellow even if only one player is there if I see they had been there lower than 8hours, UNLESS they put in a low level mons with CP lower than 1000 because that only means they are not serious in depending the gym, so that is a big invite to flush them out immediately.


#191

I don’t follow that. I have a specific route I follow to and home from work. If you are the wrong color in one of those gyms on my route, sucks to be you. I only have deal worked out with my neighbors on 2 gyms next to my house. If I encounter them on other gyms along my route? Well, they will just get thier coins early.


#192

I used to take gyms even after i got my coins. But now i cannot be bothered.


#193

I’ll just being kind to those players, specially lower level in their 20s cause I also been like that and just returning the favor.

Sort of my own unwritten code.

But if it happens that they flushed me out early, then I am more than willing to return the favor even if it is already a full packed gym with high levels mons. I have a lots of revives and berries to spare since I don’t usually do raids and now PVPs…

Anyway, as I have learned late in this games, no one is bound to play any rules, they can do anything they want, and just need to accept when things goes around. :grin:


#194

No, if I don’t have agreement with you already on our local Discord, you lose your gym. Even if I do have agreement with you, you lose it first thing next morning. My neighbors know I’m ruthless, so they have no choice but deal with me.


#195

How many personal gyms do you have, meaning the ones you always get and like to take?

I have about 5-7 depending on day and week. But i regularly get coins from the same gyms.


#196

I have four personal gyms I hold it all times but they’re on the way to work so I take them at 6 p.m. and then take them back at 8 a.m.


#197

I have 9 local gyms I take on my way to work. Then I have 3 I take between home and work. Then to hit my 20, I have 18 to choose from when I get to the town I work. What sucks is I’m already gold at all of them, so I can only work on the ones here at home when I’m off.


#198

Only my ex locations are gold. Mostly silver everywhere else.


#199

I have gold badges for all the gyms in my town There’s only 16 here

I would surely take more gyms if something like this was implemented;
