Training : The future

Training was one of Pokemon go’s early features that I was never able to fully appreciate. But when I started using it, they reworked all the gyms. Don’t get me wrong, I love the new gym system, but I want training back. Maybe, as well as being able to feed pokemon berries, you could also train them by battling a friendly gym, which would increase the Pokemon’s care level and cp whilst earning a better gym badge and getting a chance to battle more. Just a thought, any other ideas about what niantic plan to do in the future with this?


Do you think they should bring training back?

I’ve voted Yes, but not going back to the old system, adding it to the present system.


I agree. Especially because It would give players something to do at a friendly gym that’s all filled up. The old boxing glove button could appear where the ‘Add Pokemon’ button normally is.
I also loved training because I like the battling aspect of the game, despite not being a strong trainer, and there was always either training or battling to do at a gym, and now you can…wait for it…feed berries?!
I think It’s time for a new rework – and to bring back training.


Have a listen to the latest 40 Club Podcast - Mike Schmidt (the guy who “interviewed” John Hanke) tells us what he actually spoke to Hanke about & training / Ace Trainer was part of the conversation.

I hope that you can train, but it would marginally regain CP of pokemon in a gym and would count as a gym battle. It would be nice to finally be able to fight your own pokemon again though.
