Pokémon Duel, had a new update which brought the Water Gym Cup event. Event rewards include Trophies and [EX] Kyogre is a possible reward again.

This event has all Water-type Movement 1 & 2 figures get an increase of 1 for movement and Grass-types getting an Attack increase of 20 for each attack. It lasts until May 10th at 04:59 UTC with Booster Redemptions until May 16th.

Reddit had some interesting commentary:

This is maybe my favourite gym so far. Good balance between water and grass. Lots of fun figures to use (cacnea, lilligant, manaphy etc). Lots of evolution opportunities due to high number of karps. No stupid 3mp infiltrators (edit…except leafeon vs grass). Long challenging matches. I’m not doing as well as past gyms and not even mad….

Edit. And of course no reuns and hardly any deoxys! Hurrah!

Edit 2. Also feel that this is reasonably accessible. Cacnea is pretty good and everyone can run 3 of those. Most people will have at least 1 karpdos from the past gym. Leafeon and whims not bad either. So you can run a zero ex deck and be reasonably competitive.

Edit 3. Also the length of gym/energy/50 wins is, I think, well balanced now. You can definitely get to 50 with a decent team without having to use gems/wake up in the middle of the night, with over 100 games worth of energy available.

    You’re late for that on this post. It started yesterday.

      And it has nothing to do with Pokemon Go

        It doesn’t have to be Pokemon go related. Pokemon duel is also a fun game. Win or lose it’s still fun.

          I’m sure it’s a fun game, but I prefer to see only Pokemon Go related news in Pokemon GO hub. It’s not Pokemon Hub after all.

            Doesn’t matter. Ya gotta mix it up on Pokemon games and i prefer both.

          Except when you lose an event battle to a team with two Gyarados and you have zero.
