Many hardcore lovers would be dying to know the battle and gym tricks and trust me we are not publishing these tricks just like that, here\’s a list of tried and tested gym tricks for pokemon which can make you the trainer you want to be:-
Dodge and Dodge!
Whenever you are about to start a battle, dodge(swipe left or right) first. This will help you get an extra attack, maybe two and you will have the definite edge on your opponent. So as soon as you start the fight just swipe left then swipe right, just attack!!
Always choose the right one
If you want to dismantle the prestige of opponent gym you must have the right pokemon to fight your battle this means that if you have the upper hand on the right pokemon you are likely to win. Here\’s a list according to the elements, which pokemon to choose is entirely upto you, just have the right element:-
- Normal: Fighting
- Poison: Ground, Psychic
- Ground: Water, Grass, Ice
- Flying: Electric, Ice, Rock
- Psychic: Bug
- Rock: Water, Grass, Steel

Way to check availability of special move:- Watch the blue bar underneath your Pokemon’s HP.
How does it increase:- The blue bar will fill up, when you are performing normal moves.
You\’re ready:- One blue block means you can execute a special move
How to execute:- You can implement it by long pressing on the screen.
Practice first, fight later
To feel the heat at an enemy gym is what we all want to do, but the wise choice would be to get enough practice at friendly or neutral gym first. As a trainer you should train your pokemon\’s at a neutral gym. That\’s easy as a neutral gym is available for all the teams but once it is claimed you need to be ready for the battle as prestige of the gym is on the line.

Stardust and Candy do matter
If you want to beat a trainer at his game you need to know your game. You need to know how to use the stardust and candy to evolve your pokemons and then enter a battle. You also need to look at the Combat Power, that\’s the most important thing that matters during a battle.
Quick Tip:- Hatch eggs by walking especially the egg with 10km, it will give you a Pokemon with high CP.
