Trainers,

for those who do not follow us on Twitter, we’re sharing the news here also: PokéCoin rewards have again been adjusted. We’ve already updated our “PokéCoins after the Gym Update” guide with the latest changes.

Niantic has silently changed PokéCoin mechanics. You now get 1 Coin for every 10 Minutes your Pokémon defend, however, the new Daily limit is 50 Poké Coins. There is indication that Gym Badges also influence Coin rewards, possibly circumventing the 50 Coin daily limit.

We’re not sure if this is the final form of the Poké Coin mechanics, as we expect more Coin re-balancing to happen soon. Niantic has shown that they’re listening to community feedback on this update, so anything can happen right now.

The new daily limit was confirmed on their official Support page and reported by one of our readers (Kaleb01, you rock!):

Of course, this change in the Coin mechanism makes our PokéCoin Farming Guide in patch 0.67.1 completely obsolete. We’ll update the guide as soon as Coin changes become stable (1-2 days from now).

Our Twitter poll showed that a big portion of the player base (40% of voters) was satisfied with the update, but very disgruntled by the 1 Coin per Hour defended mechanism, which has been removed now:

Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

  • Daan Smid

    my Arcanine had defended a gym for 18 hours… still got 50 coins ?!

    • juan garcia

      May be it count only on new defenders after the balance

    • Amir Sama

      Yup

    • Cirithungolem

      18 hours, that was only 18 coins in the old situation

      • Lorddacc

        Yeah, and people still complain. I wish I had that 50 coin return daily.

  • Andrew Romano

    even less coins now gosh thats crap 🙁

    • juan garcia

      Yes but now its almost sure that you will get at least coin, before you had to wait 1 hour for that same Coin

      • Andrew Romano

        you have a point. i just wish it was the best of both worlds lol

  • Vikesh Narrie

    Now what incentives do I have to keep a pokemon in a gym for more than a day if he’s only going to come back with 50 coins anyway? Much less if more than one comes back the same day.

    • Responds literally to things

      That’s the point, the whole thing was meant to make gyms trade teams more frequently and avoid stagnation/ superteams holding gyms for 4 months at a time

      • Spetsen

        Well, they should really look over their incentives. They’re saying that the longer my pokémon stay in a gym the more coins I get, giving me an incentive to put strong mons in gyms and feed them frequently. They’re also saying that I get the coins when my pokémon return, which is an incentive to place bad mons in gyms and never feed them.

        What incentive do I have to take down a gym? None really, I get XP and level up my gym badge, but I can do that in a lot of other ways.

        The only way to ensure gyms trade teams often is to give people an incentive to take down enemy teams, but that’s not what we have. In fact, I’d rather take down the gyms I’m in than the enemy gyms.

        • Ewa Resterny-Milecka

          There is an incensive. There are 4 types of badges for a gym. The more you fight the gym, the more points you get. Higher badges improve the items choice that you receive from spinning the gym. Feeding the mons or defending the gym adds you points very slowly. It is way easier to beat the opposite gym to accumulate points

          • Lyrellia Naughton

            Which is even *more* of an incentive to put garbage pokemon in a gym. Take ten gyms, pack them blissey/lax/lap/lix/chansey, they will stay friendly for a while (possibly week+), then when a gang, spoofer or determined individual decides to run them, you lose all ten in the same day, and for all that week you had those gyms you get 50 pokecoins and the bit of badge exp from the initial takedown and berrying.
            Instead, fill the gyms with magikarp/rats (or gyarados/rhydon who are just as effective with the new super-effective calcs). The karp will probably die within the hour, the gym gets restocked with enemies, and you can gain more gym badge xp. The karp only have to average 50 minutes each holding gyms and you will cap out your pokecoins.
            Magikarp > blissies.

          • joshd343

            The whole point is if you keep battling gyms at a reasonable rate that most people can, you’ll always have a pokemon returning to your party each day and getting the 50 coins. More people can get coins and most of us with jobs were having a hard time averaging 50 coins all the time. Of course it would be great if they bring it back to 100 coins max and that is highly probably but even if you play for free you can still fight 3 raids every 2 days, which stops people from getting tons of raid pokemon candy, and stops people from having to fight over the people that make it in the raid lobby.

          • joshd343

            and i found out today you can get candy of the pokemon that you give berries to, even if its not your own.

          • Higher_Ground

            Realistically you can’t “take” 10 gyms in one go if they’re actually well defended. It would take all day and by the time you got finished people will have already taken down some of them.

            Since 11/12 of the gyms around me are all full and on the same team I think I’ll just let them waste away instead of attacking them. Maybe they’ll realize it’s not a great idea to take every single gym around because then nobody will bother to attack in that area. It’s much better when there is a balance to the teams as everyone gets a share.

          • Lyrellia Naughton

            Its quite easy actually. With only 6 defenders, you can one to one match every one the first time round, second time theres only really the blissey that is the challenge, the rest can be dealt with quickly by a tyranitar saving you time changing pokemon. Third time just run through the lot with a tyranitar, including the blissey. With two people simply run through the lot with one tyranitar each, takes no time at all, you dont even have to change if a machamp or usuring appears in the gym as you kill them so quickly. Shouldnt take more than 10 mins to roll a gym solo, even if its blissey/snorlax/lapras/tyranitar/donphan/usuring (probably the hardest combination as all require similar counters, mainly machamp, and most people dont have 6 high level C/DP machamps)

      • Keith the man

        you should be rewared if you can keep it, just cuz you suck doesnt mean everyone has to

        • Higher_Ground

          yeah, it kinda does. Time is a currency and those who have way more to spend are breaking the game so to speak for the rest of us.

  • Heydavid17

    Errr… okay…?
    My Golem is about to hit 24 hours xD

    Well, it sucks you can only get 50 coins, but much better that you gain a coin every 10 min.

  • asd

    Find a balance please.. 30 min/1 coin, 100 coins max per day or something.. To drop the potential for coin gathering by 50%, doesnt seem right. But hey, now that you NEED coins, raids and such. I guess us having less coins, means we have to spend more money, so yey greed..

    • Lorddacc

      Well you actually make coins faster though. You don’t need to put 3000cp Blisseys to be able to defend a gym for enough time until you get a good amount of coins. Now you can focus on maintaining one gym, instead of controlling 10 to get 2 or 3 coins.

      • asd

        I think I know what you are trying to say, even tho you are not really making your point in a good way. I agree, its easier to get 50 coins now, than it was getting 100. I personaly am one of those who spend quite a bit of time on gyms, legit playing, and I would prefer how it was.

        The change they made seems to.. limited, in my opinion. I am used to fighting for between 80 to 100 coins, nearly every day. And I know many others are aswell. To go from that, to “oh lets just camp the closest gym and feed berries lolol, doing more wont have an impact anyway xD” doesnt really encourage an active gym-playing community.

        The new graphics, balancing with 1 of each and all that, great. At most, if you are lucky with when your gyms are taken over, or spoof/use several accounts with different teams and take over yourself(I dont), you wont get above 50. Yes this limits spoofers, but it also limits the actual legit gym fighters, that would do more than afk in one gym until you need to feed a berry….

        • Nabor Rocha

          I prefer limit spoofers….

        • Marie Lemieux

          Well there’s one thing about this scheme that might want to make you go for more than one gym. While you maintain that one gym and feed it berries, you get absolutely nothing for it as long as the pokemon stays in it. Instead go and get a couple more gyms that will get flipped eventually and you’ll get the coins from those, while accumulating some in the one stable one you have for later. Although the fact that they lowered the max from 100 to 50 is really irksome. The problems with the gyms should really have them considering remaining at 100 instead of angering players more by lowering the take from the gyms…

        • Higher_Ground

          “also limits legit gym fighters”

          I’m a “legit” gym defender but I don’t have all day to spend playing pokemon go. It’s frustrating to see one team completely dominating an area to the point where it’s pointless for me to even try fighting at the gyms because I literally do not have the time to beat a full gym.

          At least before I could train at one of my own gyms that wasn’t full so I only had to play for 10 minutes or so to level it up.

          Now I have to waste 30 minutes at a single gym to knock out all 6 pokemon while knowing that those same people are gonna come back in few hours anyway.

          It would be better IMO if they limited the number of gyms you could hold at once to a much smaller number.

          Yeah, you might not be able to play 3 hrs a day taking gyms but that leaves room for people who don’t have that much time to dedicate to actually get some enjoyment out of it.

  • Cirithungolem

    I just got two mons returned from gyms and they didn’t gave me any coins though they stayed in for more than 20 hours each. I guess because I already got 81 coins today. My Gym Leader medal did count the hours though and went up from 81 to 124.

  • David Hruškar

    Um guys, I’m level 34 and I spun a gym and got a free Raid pass, plus on the nearby list it shows that I’m able to go on raids, just there is no Raids in my city. Btw. I’m from Croatia.. Are Raids live or is it still beta?

    • ダーク マウジー

      i’m 35, n i got a raid pass, but no raid has been appeared in my area too. i was 35 during the soltice event and shud be able to encounter raids, so i presume that either i’m unlucky, or the raids is only in specific countries only

      • David Hruškar

        If it’s still beta that would mean that I wouldn’t be able to get Raid pass cause you’d have to level 35 to enter Raids now, so maybe they are live for everyone? I’m plain confused but happy at the same time

        • ダーク マウジー

          i think the pass is available for everyone, but only players that level 35 or over can participate in the raid. no raids anywhere, so i can’t even proof that i’m wrong…

          • David Hruškar

            That would mean that I would get message that my trainer level is too low and that I should come back later, but it says that there is no Raids available right now..

          • ダーク マウジー

            actually, they just changed the limit from 35 to 31 not long ago. if u happened to found a raid, try n see if you can join in

          • David Hruškar

            Sweet, I will notice you guys if I bump into a raid 🙂

    • Ewa Resterny-Milecka

      In my country (Poland) so far raids only happened in sponsor locations. (Shopping malls)

      • David Hruškar

        Yup, I was watching some YouTubers and you can see in the top right corner it says ”Sponsored”, so for now in America it’s Starbucks and other sponsored locations, and in Europe it’s malls

  • Paolo Zordan

    I can not receive any coin due to the fact that pokemon don’t returne! I live in a small town, and there isn’t challenge between teams! So, zero coins

    • Juan Francisco Lopez

      It seems like when a raid occurs at that gym all the pokemon will return to its owners.

      • Paolo Zordan

        Yeah, I think so, I hope so..but now we have to wait until raids will be extend to all players. I’m level 26

      • Nope they stay in

        • Higher_Ground

          yeah I was really disappointed because otherwise the gyms around me are never going to turn over.

    • Lorddacc

      Did you try to put a weak Pokemon there? That could stimulate the competitiveness in your town.
      Which Pokemon do you have there?

      • Paolo Zordan

        It’s a good idea!! I will try! For now I have used pokemon above 2000 CP

        • Ewa Resterny-Milecka

          Just don’t feed it. The CP will drop to about 600-700

    • chris bickell

      I’m in the same boat. The few players that aren’t mystic rarely do anything with the only gym in town so now my Blissey is gonna sit there and i dont get any coins.

    • disqus_rFj3dMmCBx

      Same problem in a big city. No one will rescue the pokemon from the gym (fight/ defeat them), so they can’t bring the coins home. And the cap on coins per day has apparently been lowered while they’ve been stranded in there. And people keep feeding them, for stardust, I guess.

  • lapsap

    The coin mechanism is really bad, if you
    have few gyms, defend for few days, you won’t get any coins for few days, and only get 50 coins max when they return…..This is not right……So really there is no point to feeding berries, as you want your Pokemon to return for coins daily…. Isn’t this correct?

    • Daan Smid

      1 coin, every 10 minutes… so berries are really needed!

      • lapsap

        although 1 coin every 10 minutes but you wont get the coins until the Pokemon return and max of 50 per day, so really you want your pokemon to return daily??

        • Higher_Ground

          pretty much

    • Ewa Resterny-Milecka

      I agree. The only incentive to feeding is now a chance that by feeding you’d occasionally get a candy of the mon that you’ve fed. Did not happen to me, but other players reported it happened to them. So it is better to feed rare mons

  • ダーク マウジー

    i’m satisfied with the change, before and after the change. less coin gets means less meaning to battle gym. hence less meaning to spoofing gyms. i work from morning to evening every weekdays, and i can get 50 coins 1 day with only one gym. and i can’t defend more than 2 gyms because of bad traffic and spoofer issues. so, it’s a good change for me.

  • Kacper “Nezrah” Wierzbicki

    That limit it’s sooooooo stupid. After one hour one pokemon if he come back he will hit the limit of coins…

  • Pascal F

    that’s pure BS

  • eMike

    We should say Big Thank You too all these whiners from Reddit. F’cking morons..

  • Oscar

    So if you have a pokemon in a gym, for lets say 3 days, and then it comes back to you; you will only get 50 coins or 150 coins????

    • Cirithungolem

      50

      • Kang Ari

        Why 50, it’s 3 days

        • Mats Nordström

          Yes but the daily earnings-cap set at 50 means that you can never receive more than that when your Pokémon return. It could be in the gym for a month or more and you would still only get 50 when it returns. To earn 50 coins every day your goal has to be to get a total of 8 hrs, 20 min defending-time kicked out of gyms daily.

  • raichu DL

    did me a little math.
    at 6 coins per hour, a single defender hits this 50-coin day cap at 16 hours and 40 minutes.
    considering those gains, that is a premium raid pass every 2 days, and an incubator every 3 days.

    • Terri

      I just had one returned who had been in a gym for 12 hours and I got 50 coins

      • raichu DL

        whoops, for some reason my mind defaulted to a 100 cap.
        doing it again, it should be 8 hours and 20 minutes worth of defending minimum to hit the coin cap.
        something should be done with the excess, perhaps 10 stardust per 10 mins after the coin cap it met.

  • Teo Ritola

    Having cashed in 100 coins daily for about 6 months I can say I prefer the change. For me it effectively means I have to work a bit more daily to get half the coins I cashed in before, but if that means the opposing teams (Instinct 4 eva!) get a chance to cash in some coins and keep them more active I’m ready to give them that.

    While I would love the gym badges to increase the amount up to the old 100 coin maximum I’m not sure if it’s such a good idea. I mean it might lead to players making their own turfs where they have full gym badges and can cash maximum amount of coins instead of promoting the change of gyms ownership.

    • leonidaswin

      Well that last is a great idea!

    • Higher_Ground

      the whole turf thing is already happening to some extent. I think a few people must work on top of gyms because they’re always there and will take it back right after you leave.

  • André Santos

    Good with the 1 per 10 min but you could maintain the 100 per day to

  • Antonius Naumann

    The 50 coin per day limit is just bullshit.

    Getting some coins is way too easy, getting much is impossible.

    Next patch will be:

    -now every player will get 30 coins for the first Pokestop of the day, coins earned through ingame interactions limited to 30 coins

  • the2000guy

    Is 50 coins per Pokemon daily or max global? So if I have 10 Pokemon defending…

    • Terri

      That’s my question. If it’s maxed out at 50 per day, what’s the motivation to have more than one in a gym

      • Anthony

        It is 50 per day. Regardless of how many Mons are in gyms. The last 5 Mons that I had removed from gyms gave me no coins.

      • the2000guy

        Exactly, I thought the same way.

      • Higher_Ground

        gyms turn over faster than you can collect 50 coins?

  • Zachary Zvonek

    I come here to watch grown men cry

  • Jeff Murray

    Noticed item/bag storage has increased. I purchased to 1200 but ran out of coin. Anyone know how high it goes?

    • Oscar

      1500

      • Jeff Murray

        Thank you.

  • Piet

    Seems a great system.
    Now normal people with jobs have once again access to coins 😉
    This might attract lower level players aswell.
    Gogo Niantic; although I did expect bettet anti cheating measures!

  • Beau T Ottenbreit

    There needs to be any kind of challenge in this game. This 50 coin cap is crap – that is only 8 1/2 hours between all of your pokemon combined in a 24 hour period. That is less than holding one gym overnight, pathetic. The one they had put in was already too easy anyway, but in natural fashion they make it even easier so that even that person that only feels like playing one gym a day can max out, while those of us that are looking to actually play a game are left with no legitimate or reasonable reward for participating.

    • Higher_Ground

      Yeah most people with a life can only afford the time to play a couple gyms a day…. and those who feel the need to place a pokemon in every gym can now do so for their own amusement if they still want to.

      edit: Of course if you indeed play it that much you can still pony up and buy coins 🙂

  • AverageGamers

    Niantic, make up your mind!
    I only need Coins to upgrade my Pokemon storage. I kept running out space due to Eggs. ?
    Oh, and also to purchase a glasses… ?

  • Gabriella Martins

    There is still no point. I live in a city dominated by Mystic. I took 2 gyms down today and my pokemon lasted 5 minutes in each. Why would I even bother to battle? the reward is little to nothing.

    • Nabor Rocha

      well, if you take down a gym alone, you ll get rewarded with exp for your gym badge, I m not sure but you ll get 6 times more than the opposite team because you need to beat 6 mons, instead if they try to recover the gym from your, they’ll have to divide all exp between six, or just one of them will get the exp of one mon at the gym, you’ll get the best medal faster than them, you have to concentrate at the same gyms everyday.

      • Higher_Ground

        yeah, but the point of fighting gyms is mainly to get coins, is it not?

    • Janneke

      Stay near your gym and feed berries when the other team attacks. Feeding is faster than fighting.

      • RLB63

        You are limited to how many berries you can feed any Pokemon in a gym in a set amount of time

      • Gabriella Martins

        well, considering that most people playing in my city are kids that just got on summer break, I’d need to spend the entire day next to the gym, cuz they’re out around them all day… -.- At the end of the day all I’m doing is wasting potions and revives so that the other team can get their daily coins and maximize their gain.

    • Higher_Ground

      I agree. 11/12 gyms currently around me are Mystic…

      I think I’m gonna let them have their cake instead of letting them eat it. I’m not going to battle any Mystic gyms for a while until they realize they’re stagnating the entire game.

      They need to reset the teams.

  • Kuah Jian Huat

    What is the definition of per day here? Every 24 hours since the last 50 coins? Or is there a fixed time when the reset happens?

  • Terri

    I put 3 pokemon in 3 different gyms. So you’re telling me I no longer get any dust and the max I can get in coins is per day is 50? What’s the incentive of placing more than one pokemon in gyms?

  • Nguyen Ngoc Tu
    • Simon Johnson

      I feel like those who used to get 100coin per day by being in 20 gyms will lose out the most, whereas the vast majority of those who never got any or few per day will benefit from this.
      Personally I prefer it at present.

    • Higher_Ground

      Right now you get 1 coin per 10 minutes. SInce you had it for 77 minutes you got 7 coins.

  • Terri

    I put a pokemon in a gym this morning and just now he was returned with 50 coins. He was there about 12 hours

  • Trumpbroni

    Ugh, 50 per day…not enough

  • Dorito

    Really, oh well on coins, what’s the new policy with my stardust? Any awarded anymore?

    • Terri

      That’s what I’m wondering too. It seems I’ll have to catch a ton of guys just to get the dust I used to get from having a guy in a gym for several days

      • Dorito

        I’m already at the point where stardust is my issue, I have guys I want to powerup but it’s getting so I deplete all my dust right away. I’m glad they made the elemental efficacy better so now it’s actually worth it to power up some of my high ranking guys that were not in the ‘Titan Family’

        • Higher_Ground

          you can still get dust from the weekly catch bonus

          it’s not the same though. I feel like they need to up the amount of stardust you get in general (and decrease buddy distances, too).

          • Dorito

            I know the methods to gaining stardust, I just wish there was more reasonable facets for obtaining it. They should award small dust amounts (20-100) for walking a good distance or for full days defending, or even as an uncommon stop reward. Also during successful battles, if stardust is required for powering up Pokémon who win battles or are walked should gain it directly to their power up cost, something, lol

            I agree, and there should be a reward if you walk a mon the distance it takes to evolve it should let you keep half the candy for that individual https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e8f205ce1ec6a4bee5297b154d560cc4071a06de4204e5cb7042f0b5087cfe1d.png
            175 km to go, then I’ll still need to power up with 6 candy cost @[email protected]

          • Higher_Ground

            yeah I’ve got a Mareep with 50 candy that I’ve been walking for a while but it’ll be months before I have enough to evolve it.

            Thankfully I’m at a high enough level that he won’t need that much stardust when I finally get to evolve it.

          • Dorito

            I have a decent crew ATM, now I’m hoarding dust for only perfect babies

    • Nabor Rocha

      you gain stardust if you feed your mons or others of your team, you can gain more dust than before

      • Dorito

        Granted if you have millions of berries, and because berries =stardust, I currently have none, lol. Since stardust is needed to power up I think they should still award some for fighting, or at least allow you to power up an individual once for every a set amount of wins with only the candy cost. After all, that’s ‘training’.

      • In Brookhaven

        where i am the gyms are glichy and it takes a long time to give 10 berries to a pokemon in the gym, and that just gives you 200 stardust. Easier to catch 2 pokemon.

  • David Morris

    Wait… so, if I put a Pikachu in a gym, and it stays there for 3 days before the gym goes down… do I get coins equal to the amount of time Pikachu was in the gym the day it was defeated? OR do I get the 50 coins per day from the previous 2 days Pikachu defended the gym?

    They keep saying max 50 coins PER DAY… so if your Pokemon sits in a gym for a few days, will you get 50 coins for each full day they were in the gym?

    • Anthony

      No. You will receive 50 coins only in that scenario.

      • David Morris

        Well, that’s deceiving XD They should make it per pokemon, or per gym, or something that’s makes it more rewarding to take and defend a bunch of gyms. Although, I guess that makes it less worthwhile for spoofers to take a bunch of gyms since they’re not getting much out of it. oh well. raids are pretty cool.

        • Higher_Ground

          I think they’re also trying to make it more accessible so that it’s not only a few people locking down all the gyms.

    • Higher_Ground

      the 50 coins per day is for your account, not a particular pokemon

  • Ayush saraf

    But I got 51 pokecions for defending a gym for 10 hours!

  • Philipp

    Why limit to 50? For all who got 100 a day this means we loose half of our income!! I now need 3 day just to buy 1 incubator

      100 coins per day meant 10 gyms! In typical towns they are held invariably by just the same handful of people. The other 95% of players were lucky to find 2-3 slots for the day and then shaved after 10 minutes… 3 days for an incubator sounds great.

      That said, I think the balances are not right yet. They should reward attacking too.

      • Higher_Ground

        if they reward attacking then we’ll finally see more balance in who holds gyms.

        That or randomly reset teams.

  • Terri

    I put 3 pokemon in gyms today. After 12 hours I got one back with 50 coins. A couple of hours later I got another one back with nothing … no coins. So basically the game is to go out and put one pokemon in a gym per day and go home. Where’s the incentive to play?

    • Nabor Rocha

      the gym badge, you need to upgrade your gyms badge, that’s the goal now, whoever has the best badge will have more advantage to others.

      • RLB63

        Advantage for what? To get better Pokemon to do what? Defend gyms that you don’t really need?

        • Gabriella Martins

          THIS! I wish I could like your comment 1000 times hahaha

    • Higher_Ground

      getting a gym still takes a good amount of time.

      There’s also raids and trying to complete the pokedex.

    • hannelujah

      I put one in a gym that sat for 6 hours today, it was returned to me with no coins. What am I not getting?

  • Zapmeister

    50 coins/day is a bit depressing for folks that have become accustomed to 100, especially since we now have premium raid passes competing with egg incubators and lucky eggs for those reduced funds. But there’s a much bigger problem with the system, IMHO.

    Players now rely on rival teams to deliver their income. In those out-of-the way gyms, you desperately need a rival to send your defender home with his/her coins in pocket. In the absence of any such rival, you may be tempted to level up an alternate character that you’ve put in a rival team for expressly this purpose. There’s something very wrong with this picture.

    Niantic should design a system that encourages players to control gyms, encourages them to try to keep that control, and which does NOT leave them at the mercy of their rivals for the delivery of their income. The current system achieves none of these goals.

    • Kuah Jian Huat

      Even before this I know of few players having multiple accounts from different teams. They would hit down the lowest CP pokemon, then pump it back to assign their own in main account. This new system would probably encourage players to create multiple accounts… Not cool

    • Simon Johnson

      Don’t they just lose motivation themselves and then return back to you after a few days?

      • Zapmeister

        No. When on zero motivation, it still takes a battle to remove the defender.

  • Antonio Mercurio

    I have a gyrados in a gym for 24h what does that mean?

    • Zapmeister

      Very little. When some kind soul on a rival team sends your gyrados home, you’ll get 50 pokecoins and no more. That was the case as soon as you hit the 8 hour, 20 minute mark. Sorry to be the bearer of such bad news.

      • Antonio Mercurio

        Well 50 pokecoins for 8h is worth it, I would rather this than 10pokecoins per day, Thanks for you help!

        • Higher_Ground

          at least someone gets it! 🙂

  • David Hruškar

    UPDATE on earlier post, gym raids are now happening in my hometown! And not one, but two raids 😀 So maybe it’s not only on sponsored gyms. Maybe the raids are live for everyone? Pokemon Go Hub istražite to, molim vas 😀

  • Yani

    I’m upset that the berries only yield 20 stardust each. It’d be better if the pokemon came back with stardust too, it’s way too scarce.

    • Pascal F

      I’m cool with that, I get 20 startudst for the bananas I’d otherwise just delete.

      • Oscarv

        just need to feed 3500 bananas before you can power up a hatched Pokémon to level 30 😉

    • Higher_Ground

      they ought to up it to at least 100, like catching a measly pidgey or rattata yields you

  • Peg Pegasus

    Well, some people benefit from this, like my daughter was before only in 1 gym, so daily she collected 10 coins, Today she collected for the first time 50 coins for holding a gym 10 hours i know she can’t collect more, but that’s 40 more then she used to have

    For me, i was in 10 gyms (i’m daily on the road, so i come to many places), collected 100 coins daily, now only 50 coins, that’s the reason i now only place myself in 5 gyms or less, my wife only 2, we all collect 50 coins daily now, so yes it’s easier and yes it’s better then before, everybody now has an easy change of getting at least 50 coins daily, i don’t feel the need to get 10 gyms, so that’s more room for other players, So, i can find myself with 50 coins daily and 1 coin every 10 minutes, i live in a town with 4 gyms and a few stops, you can at least hold 4 gyms for 2,5 hours in the week (1 hour or less in the weekends),
    (Since there are almost no other gyms around in the neighboor towns, they all come to my town, so yes gyms switch regulary from team (mostly red/blue) but in a peace you can easily get your 50 coins (yes, would be very nice, but, i’m happy)

    • Simon Johnson

      I do agree, easier for many to get some coins, a change from a few getting loads of coins. I’m seeing alot of people moaning they can’t get 100 coins anymore… sorry, most of us barely got 10 a day at last wehre i live anyway, so not much sympathy there. Feels like the coins will be balancing out much fairer now imo anyway and more people will be able to spend on clothes and other stuff, not just the elite few.
      It’s early days too people, give it time to settle in :o)

      • Tyrone Sangwall

        For me it’s not about the coins. Having 10+ of gyms was a challenge that only a few mastered. I would have been fine to do it to get on some sort of leader board or whatever. If everyone will get 50 coins for free anyway there’s no point in trying to improve your skills in combat, spending time to locate good gyms, power up your pokémons, etc. The game now requires zero skills for a high level player, just select your 6 highest pokémons and spam click to take down the gym. Put any worthless pokémon in the gym and hope that it gets torn down within a few hours.

        It’s really good that they improved the income and gym participation for low level players, but they removed the reason to climb in level and improve your gaming which made the game dull and boring.

        • Higher_Ground

          it’s a challenge that’s entirely based on how much free time you have to spend playing the game, though. There’s no skill involved so to speak. It also comes directly at the cost of other people’s enjoyment.

          • Tyrone Sangwall

            First of all prestige was actually quite hard. Sure you could get the same work done if you spent a lot of time doing the wrong thing. But doing it effective required some skill. Understanding which gyms to actually spend time on is also a skill that very few mastered. A lot of things in this game is very repetitive and without much skill, but at least all that grind of candy and stardust got you mons which you could use in gyms and get coins.

            Now there’s no need for stardust, candy or level up, because you can’t really use your high level pokémons for anything anyway, they removed a big part of the game.

  • Santiago Lopez

    At least a gym leader could receive 10 coins if they keep a gym for 24h…

  • Peg Pegasus

    In the end, Niantic income was fading away, the people who still played the game where all holding gyms for coins, i bet some people have collected over 10.000 coins, so no income from those.

    Changing it to 50 coins a day, and doing every hour a raid battle (yes in my town when you take the 4 gyms, it’s every hour a raid battle) people have to spend coins for more then 1 raid battle a day.

    Keeping in mind, you also have to revive those pokemon and heal them, you do need alot of revives and potions

    I bet more then 10% will now spend cash on the game again in the comming weeks and that’s the only thing that counts, income!! and lots of it? So why not create a system where people are almost forced to spend some cash to enjoy every raid battle and keep there mons happy

    • Terri

      I have always spent money on incubators but I won’t be spending more money on anything else

    • Zapmeister

      If this is true, then Niantic’s problems are bigger than I thought. Pay-to-win is the worst possible way to make money out of a game. Either pay-to-play (yearly subscription as per World of Warcraft) or an up-front charge to buy the game would both allow for fairer and more interesting game mechanics (and probably make more money for Niantic).

      I’ve played this game every day for the last 3 months, but I now struggle to see any reason to continue. Sad to say, if there’s no improvement in the rules in the next few days, I’ll just have to let it go and find some other use for my phone.

    • Higher_Ground

      more than 10%? I doubt that many people even care to play more than one raid a day.

  • Sarah Kastner

    50 coins a day is way to low. If they want to lower the amount of time to get coins they should raise the max amount. If you are in a low turn over area, like me, you will loose so many coins a day. This will discourage people from using the gyms not encourage them

  • Anneke Van Der Merwe

    Stardust is now very difficult to come by, since you only get 20 per rasberry that you feed to push up morale. Not fair that you first have to use your resources before you can get stardust.

  • Nicola Lovesjohanreb Clark

    Having to buy premium raid passes that work ONCE I think the 50 coin limit needs revising asap! I love the new gyms, but, not the increased cost to the player.

  • Stefan Streef

    Why i was in gym for 2 days. So ea hour max 100 was better for me. And it us pretty active here. Also some spoofing mostly leggit. Still weird its 00.26 now and already maxed out the daily. The 100 was already less becouse it was max 100 ea 21 hours.

  • Paul Intharathut

    So I had two Pokemon return to me today at around 8am and 10am and it looks like I got 50 coins. I placed another two Pokemon in gyms today and one came back after 3 hours with no coins. Does that mean I won’t get the coins until the second mon comes back or am I already at my daily limit and need to wait until after 10am tomorrow to start earning coins again?

    • Pascal F

      need to wait until after 10am tomorrow to start earning coins again?

      this

  • Ya Boi

    Spoofers are still a problem in my area. Can’t hold a gym down for more than 5 mins. Reported them but no avail. New gym system is disadvantageous to genuine, independent players. Esp when unable to fight high level raids

  • CMvet

    So really now that it is 6 coins per hour, 50 coins per day max we can play less now. Think about it, all you need is 1 mon in a gym for 9 hours to reach you max daily coin limit. Just put a couple in a gym every day and you will play less than before. No more need to battle or level 10 gyms a day. 1 or 2 now and you’re good.
    I personally think this is aimed at making niantic more money. People want coins, they are going to have to buy them now as you make minimal per day. 2 days (of coins) to get 1 raid pass. Well once people fill their pokedex, raids will become less and less interesting (except for legendaries). Then Niantic will make less and less money because people will be less inclined to buy more coins in game (they need fewer raid passes).
    It’s been 2 days and I already cherry pick raids. if I don’t need the mon, no need to join the raid. At 225 caught in my pokedex, there are not many more I need to find. I don’t see raiding being a big factor in my pokemon go future if it remains the same, and I expect many others will feel the same in the very near future.
    They need to reduce the hourly coins but increase the max per day. Give people a reason to go out and battle gyms or feed berries. Right now I don’t feed berries to my own pokemon, I want them to drop out of a gym after 9 hours so I can get the coin. I might feed other peoples just to keep them from coming out, but that might just be out of spite (known botters).

    • Zapmeister

      Exactly.

    • Pascal F

      That is the point, they just want more money.
      It will also be horrible when Gen 3 comes out as it will take forever to get enough coins for incubators.

      • Oscarv

        It already takes me 1 week to barely get enough coins for an incubator, but with the new gyms just 3 days (if pokemons actually return every day, which they don’t…)

        • Higher_Ground

          yeah I’m earning way more coins than before, even while holding less gyms.

          I don’t see what the complaint is? I guess people who were dominating the game based on their ability to play it all day long are upset… but nothing’s stopping them now, other than they don’t get as many coins (but what are they even using them for???)

          • In Brookhaven

            No you didn’t dominate by playing all day. In fact you played less. You dominated by cultivating high CP Pokemon and fighting to raise the prestige of your team’s gym to create space. Now it takes no skill to get in a gym after someone switches it to your gym. The other 5 just get to go in just because they happen to be near the gym, it takes no work or even a decent pokemon.

          • Higher_Ground

            High CP pokemon weren’t good for fighting to raise the prestige of your gym. It was much faster/easier to use low CP pokemon with a type advantage and then run away once you hit a higher CP pokemon a few tiers in.

            The only use for high CP pokemon was to get a higher slot in the gym since they weren’t ordered by who got there first. They still weren’t that good for attacking, especially if someone added a relatively low CP pokemon at some point.

            I agree that the current gym implementation is crap. Not only is it too easy for legit players to drop in a pokemon, it’s literally no effort at all for spoofers. Probably why I had 2 added mid battle when I was alone at a gym today. Also probably why that same gym magically changed over to the 3rd team with a level 40 trainer and a mr. mime (not even available in my country).

            Cheaters are ruining the gyms and i’ve just decided to hold off on them until they do something about it.

    • Cj Maldonado

      Yep, I’ve lost incentive to go out and battle. There’s always a gym I can find within 10 minutes to drop 1 in and get my 50 per day. Ill now only get additional incubators when I have 10k eggs. I’ve got 235 out of 236 seen (damn kanga) so raids aren’t going to get me out unless legendary ones come out. Foolishly did a 4 star on my own and got killed repeatedly so that did prove out the need a group theory. Leaving europe and heading back to Florida for more corsola and heracross

      • Ruin Nation

        oke so how i see it its realy simpel, niantic notist they ware giving to much coins to player, simpel fact, you could buy someting in the shop after 2 days of battling in gyms. now you need to wait 4 days to buy if you can manage to get the 50 coins. so to say that niantic give us less because they need more money whitch they didnt make enough (more then 100million) is sad. is say if you going to cap the coins per day then make it the items in shop less so we can still buy some and dont need to wait a month to buy some items

      • Higher_Ground

        what did the extra 50 coins do to make you want to play that badly??? More incubators? For what, you already said you’ve basically completed the pokedex as much as you can?

        I get that people are upset they arent’ earning as many coins but they didn’t need that many to begin with.

        I thought way more people would be upset over not getting the stardust, which you can’t even buy in the store.

        • Gabriella Martins

          keep in mind that before the update you wanted to hatch eggs to get candy to power pokemon up, to get higher IV pokemon, to get more pokemon hatching in the same walk, to get extra stardust… a variety of reasons. Now I have quite a bit of stardust and feel like spending it on powering up pokemon is actually detrimental to me, as I want lower CP pokemon to put in gyms.
          Niantic needs to understand that the people that left the game once will leave it twice. Raids aren’t sustainable for a long period of time, especially when you make it harder to do more than 1 per day. It doesn’t give anybody an incentive to want to do it like crazy… reason why ALL the raids I’ve visited(rare eggs) were completely empty. Way too many, way too expensive to do more than 1 per day.

    • Higher_Ground

      what are you using the coins for? How is 50 a day not enough?

      At some point I think they want to make the game accessible to people who aren’t spending several hours a day playing it.

  • Cody Allen

    So I’ve had a pokemon in a gym for 5 hrs now and still no coins. Am I missing something?

    • Zapmeister

      You need someone on a rival team to come along and oust your defender. You have no control over this. It could take forever.

  • Kang Ari

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0bd549fbc18e33f926d5f3d7a6da25e599387cdeeb02aa84bb6384166f0060a3.png
    I defended a gym for 2 days, but I got only 50 coins, it’s ridiculous

  • Pascal F

    Battling and holding gyms has become quite pointless. I just got a big fat ZERO from a Pokemon that was in a gym for 3 days.
    I’ve now deleted most of my revives and potions as there’s no need for 100+ of them, I’d never be able to use them.
    What I’ll do now is place just one Pokemon in a fairly busy gym OVERNIGHT and collect in the morning. Might do it with 2 just to be safe. They would only need to stay in for 4 hours.

    • Jiara Anatalis

      Well, you need those for raids! I am fed up with the gym system as well, but the new raid events are fun. Still need to revive and heal pokemon from those.

      • Pascal F

        1 raid/day, it’s very easy to make up for whatever I spend to revive and heal 2-3 fainted ones.

  • Jiara Anatalis

    This move only hurts legit players. Spoofers will still manipulate gyms enough to gather their max coin allowance no matter what it is. They don’t care what the limit is set to, they will continue to game the system. I seriously doubt they will suddenly throw their hands up in disgust and quit cheating because the payout is so low now. The whole “no pay until return” idea stinks. We have no control over how long a pokemon can hold out in a gym. I’ve been stuck in three gyms for over 2 days EACH. Someone is feeding them berries and keeping them motivated. I would have gotten 60 pokecoins just from those three under the former system. Now, they are not paying me anything for their time, and all their “overtime” will vanish too. Niantic can pretend this is a move to punish spoofers while generating excitement for gym battling, but the true reason is forcing players to purchase coins. They were giving away over $20 worth of coins a month to players who worked hard enough to find and maintain 10 gyms; they had to stop the bleeding.

    • Higher_Ground

      but it’s still $10 a month?

      You said in the beginning of your paragraph that cheaters won’t care if the reward is halved – so why would legit players care either? “work hard to find and maintain 10 gyms” sound a lot more to me like you’ve just got more free time than most to do so. It’s not really work to tap the screen over and over again. The closest thing to “work” this game makes you do is walk endless kms for buddy candy.

      • Jiara Anatalis

        They care, I presume, in the same way I do. I monitored the gyms I found that were my team (Yellow is under presented everywhere, so I had to travel far afield to find stable gyms for myself) and spent time building them up. I was rewarded for that by getting 100 coins every 21 hours. Now, that same work results in even less than the new limit. I’ve had pokemon stuck in gyms for 4 days and counting. I will only get 50 coins from them, if that (if more than one returns on the same day, I lose that second pokemon’s accumulation). Spoofers can still manipulate the gyms so they collect the maximum amount allowed. Legit players can’t. There is zero incentive for me to go fight gyms and place pokemon now because I still have so many stuck in gyms. Now, the more pokemon you have in gyms, the more you lose.

  • Peg Pegasus

    Few other things:

    – REDUCE the time players from your team that didn’t battle (or the did even battle in soime cases) Almost 7 whole minutes before a team mate can put in his pokémon.

    For example: We where fighting with 3 people to take over a gym, we won i and 1 mate placed in a pokemon, the other friend, was still looking what pokemon to place in, he couldn’t put in his pokemon anymore, he had to wait almost 7 minutes before he could put in his pokémon :/

    I do understand the need to protect from hostile takeover when you do all the work, but isn’t 2 minutes more then enough?

    Also, When a battle is in progress, prevent other teams to enter.
    Today i was battling a gym with my 2 mates and when battling the last pokemon, another guy joined in (spoofer, cause we saw nobody around) from the Yellow team and he was quicker to put in a pokémon after we we all won the battle, so we had to fight his pokemon to to claim the gym.

    Simple, A battle is in progress by team ….., you can’t join the battle if your team color isn’t the same!

    or

    A battle is in progress! You can’t join the battle

    And make it also, so that when you heal your pokemon for the next round, that only players who where there from the start, can re-enter the battle for round 2 etc… till the defending pokemon is defeated

    • Higher_Ground

      in your scenario if the spoofer got there first neither you nor your friends could have joined the battle.. is that what you really want?

      They need to get rid of spoofers – but having a battle locked out is just asking to give them even more of the upper hand.

  • Pat

    Because it costs 100 coins for a raid pass, and you are not even guaranteed even 50 coins a day, if your Pokemon don’t get kicked out, it can take too long to accumulate enough coins to enjoy the game. I would suggest the limit to 200 coins a day. That would allow for the cost of one extra raid, and save up the rest for whatever you need the most. By the way, there are Pokemon sitting in gyms for days now, mine included, because there is no incentive for anyone to clear a gym using time effort and potions and revives, when they may be kicked out again in minutes. Changes need to be made I think.

  • Ivan Barzallo

    With the old system, one was able to garner 100 coins per day if you could occupy 10 gyms. The equivalent limit should be offered in the new update.

  • Chefman

    Everyone here seems to be a hardcore player. While niantic may be after your money, they’re also trying to level the playing field a little. In my neighborhood, there used to be 6 gyms that were dominated by the same 10 players for at least a week at a time. None of the players who started playing later or don’t play as much ever had a chance.

    With the new system, there’s no point in a player dumping high cp Pokemon into every single gym since a few can hit the daily max after a couple hours. This leaves more gym space open for casual players to still enjoy the game.

    • Zapmeister

      Actually, there’s no point in dumping a high-CP pokemon into ANY gym, and that’s yet another issue – one that hasn’t seen much coverage here. Because you get no benefit from guarding a gym for longer than 8 hrs 20 mins, getting your pokemon out is a bigger problem than getting them in. To encourage others to evict your defenders, you need use weak ones (and do NOT feed them berries).

      The only role left for strong pokemon is participation in raids and for that, you only need a handful. Gone are the days when high-CP pokemon were essential to defend gyms and secure your pokecoin income. Gone also is a pressing need for the stardust used to create those pokemon (which may explain why stardust is now harder to get).

      The game is more accessible to casual players, I’ll grant that. But its also shallower, with fewer controls in the hands of the player. We always had to wait, relying on luck alone, for the rare pokemon to spawn or hatch. Now we also have to wait on our teams’ rivals to do us the huge favour of evicting our defenders and delivering our coins.

      • Mats Nordström

        Yes you see more and more professor-fodder in gyms around here as the absurdity of the current system dawns on people.

      • Higher_Ground

        they could fix that by going back to the prestige system and getting rid of motivation.

        If I beat a gym with 2 pokemon 2 times in a row it should be mine for the taking. I shouldn’t have to beat it 3 more times in a row!

        There’s little incentive for me to even try to get coins now. Every single gym is blue and full…. I say let them sit on that for a while and maybe enough people on both sides of the issue will complain and cause some adjustment. They were sure quick to adjust the coin rewards after backlash.

    • In Brookhaven

      I think they have made the game so that skill or experience doesn’t matter. Good for keeping people for a month or two but after that why play it?

  • Wheatstraw

    c’mon… 50 coins a day isn’t enough seeing as i can earn that with just one defender. Where is the incentive to drop off any more than one on a given day?

    • Terri

      That’s my question too. I can’t seem to find an answer anywhere

      • Higher_Ground

        because you might not hold that spot for 8 hours?

        I mean the old way that was certainly true for me. I’d take 3-4 gym slots and they’d all be gone 30 minutes later.

    • Terri

      After playing the past couple of days I think I’ve answered my own question. I left a few pokemon in gyms and one came back with 50 coins and the next day a couple came back with 7 & 11 coins, I believe. Anyway .. placing a mon in a few gyms will give you a better chance of getting coins. And the battles are still the same … put your best defenders in and attack with your best guys

  • Lambert Muis

    So, question… I had a Snorlax hold a gym for 24 hours and 30 minutes… Then it got knocked out. Said gym didn’t seem like it saw much daily action, and I didn’t visit it again before Snorlax was removed. However, I only received 9 coins. My Rhydon held a different gym for only 7 hours, and netted me 41 coins. Again, less active gym, didn’t visit between placing and knocked out… What happened here? “>_>

    • Zapmeister

      At the rate of one coin per 10 minutes, the Rhydon earned 41 coins for being a defender for 6 hours and 50 minutes (I guess you didn’t quite make it to 7 hours). If, in the same day, another of you defenders was evicted, then it could only earn a maximum of 9 coins, as the daily limit is 50.

  • blag13

    What if I hold a gym for 3 days? Will my Pokemon come back to me with 150 coins or 50 coins?

    • Mats Nordström

      50. But only if you haven’t already gotten 50 the same day. In that case your 3 days in the gym will reward you 0 coins.

  • Terri

    I can’t seem to find an answer to my questions. I would like to know what the incentive is to put pokemon in multiple gyms. Where is the motivation to power up pokemon with great IVs? Do IVs even come into play anymore? I suppose high CP pokemon are still useful in battle but what are the chances of taking down a gym alone? It seems the most I can do is put most any pokemon in a gym if I can find a vacancy and get my 50 coin cap when he’s returned. And what if he’s in the gym for more than one day? Do I get 50 coins for each day? Niantic seems very vague on the update

    • Mats Nordström

      The only incentive I can think of is the fact that you need the sum of 8 hrs 20 min defending-time kicked out every day to get your maximum 50 coins. If you only hold one gym and no one kicks you out you get zero coins that day. And no if you hold a gym for more than one day you still get just the daily cap of 50 when it gets back, provided of course that you haven’t already earned your 50 earlier in the day. In that case you get 0 additional coins.

    Is it 50 coins per day or 50 coins no matter how long you are in the gym ? I was defending a gym for 2 days 22 hrs and 49 mins and when my Pokemon was returned to me I only received 50 coins instead of the 150 I should have received.

    • Mats Nordström

      Since the daily cap on earnings is set to 50 it follows that you can never get more than 50 for any Pokemon returning. “Fun” fact – you reach 50 after 8 hours, 20 min in a gym.

  • Paul Intharathut

    Does anyone know if the 50 coins per day is reset at midnight like First Catch and First Spin?

    • Brian

      Yes, that’s exactly when it resets.

      • Paul Intharathut

        Thanks. I actually found this out last night when a 2 day Pokemon returned at 11:55 pm and a 4 day Pokemon finally returned at 3:30 am. I received 50 coins for both returns for a total of 100 coins.

    @disqus_1txq8QNVwT:disqus @Higher_Ground:disqus @vikeshnarrie:disqus a pokemon returned to me from a gym after 10 hours without giving me
    coins. Is it because it returned the same time with another pokemon
    (which gave me 50 coins)?

    • giannis

      ok i took my answer bellow!!

    • Lorddacc

      The daily limit is 50 coins, so if one of your Pokemon already came back with 50 coins in that day, you won’t get anymore no matter how many Pokemon return to you in the same day.

    • Vikesh Narrie

      Yes. You can only collect a max of 50 coins per day. So if more than one pokemon is returned to you on the same day you’ll only get 50 coins regardless of how long they defended the gym.

  • Brian

    I’ve been following a new gym code of ethics, I only kick out people if they have been in there longer than 8 hours. I wish more people would catch on as I’ve been stuck in multiple gyms for 2+ days 🙁

    • Paul Intharathut

      How do you know how long they’ve been in a gym?

      • Brian

        The new gym UI shows how long each person has been in a gym when you scroll through them.

    TBH i prefer this system to the old one, under the previous setup my area was just completely overrun wth spoofers milking my town for almost every Pokecoin they could get thier thieiving mitts on, now i can go out at midnight and take one Gym out and when the work rush starts at about half 8 in the morning im alreaddy laughing my way to the bank with my 50 coins, weve never had it soo easy! oh and it makes me want to go out once every day to do my dailies

  • Finn Brown

    I had 4 Pokemon in gyms for 5+ days and they all get kicked out on the same day and could only get 50 coins. One Pokémon defending for 8 hours could get that! They should just have a cap per Pokemon and they should get the coin every 10 minutes rather than getting them all at the end.

  • K.k. Hui

    When the pokemon stays at gym more than one day without return, no pokecoin is given. Let’s say it stays 2 days and 1 hour at gym. But for the first 2 days you get 0 pokecoin because it does not return to you. When it returns at the third day, you get 6 pokecoins only. Pokemon Go should give pokecoin whenever daily cut-off time even the pokemon still stays at gym. That means for the first two days cut-off time. (50+50) 100 pokcoin should be given first. Then 10 more pokecoin is given when it returns. Totally 110 pokecoins. Do you agree ?

    So I’ve been racking my brains trying to figure out why they did this. I don’t buy the suggestion that Niantic has accidentally broken their own game. I think I know what’s going on, but it’s sheer speculation, I admit.

    MAYBE they don’t make any money out of high-level players, who don’t buy coins, so they’ve deliberately made the game pointless for those players to get rid of them and, in so doing, making the game more accessible to casuals who DO buy coins more often than the experienced players. In other words, when Mr Hardcore Player says “That’s it, game is broken, I’m out of here”, Niantic just says “That’s what we hoped you would say”.

    As a desirable side-effect, the botters that build high-level accounts to sell have just had the bottom fall out of their market. Who wants a high-level account now?

    The Gym Rework is a disaster, reworking a perfectly good game. It is now too money-minded – too few coins, and having to pay for raid passes. Instead of polling for opinion of the new system, why not let trainers have a choice? Give trainers 2 options – 1) the old game where there is training, ten level gyms and 100 coins daily limit. 2) the current game. Let the 2 options run concurrently and trainers can opt to download either of these 2 apps. That will be a real test of which is more popular. It will also be a win-win situation. Those lower level trainers can opt for option 2) and higher level trainers can go for option 1). Of course there is no reason why lower level trainers cannot go for option 1) if they want to.

  • BlauwBloed

    is the max limit 50 PER DAY….or 50 MAX no matter how many days you are in a gym??? ive been in 1 gym for 5 days…reward was 50 coins! so giving candy to gym pokemons is a waste then!

  • Robert Byrne

    There should be some other battle system. The way the gyms are set up is boring. I can take down a gym to put one of mine in but if I only get coins for one where is the incentive.
    My Snorlax came back from a gym after a week and I got no coins and no star dust.
    I can understand why it’s set up for this to insure the newer players play. More coins means they buy some stuff and hence spend possible real money to buy incubators and so on to fill the pokedex.
    But on the down side for anyone myself included who has spent time already filling up the pokedex and assembling a decent team their is no worthwhile battles to take place.
    There should be a real battle available for players over a certain level say level 20 upwards for rewards or star dust or candies or rare eggs or legendary raid passes other wise this is going to go stale very fast. I’ve no massive need for coins but what’s the purpose of powering up mons if your better off leaving a weak one defending a gym.

  • Oberdan

    Some days ago I left a pokemon defending a gym for about 30 hours, and got only 50 coins. I’m level 32 and have a bronze badge at that gym. May anyone confirm that this is the right amount?

  • Julia Bauer

    Has anyone noticed they took coins out of the shop completely? How are you going to buy them now?

  • Petr Kubjat
