Promotional Images Make It Clear There Will Be Pokémon Battles and Gyms in Pokémon GO

Upon reaching level 5, gyms are unlocked. When capturing a gym, you can place a pokemon there to defend the place. For each victory of that pokémon, you earn PokéCoins. But you don't have to be the Gym Leader to earn PokéCoins. You can place a pokémon to help a gym on your team and earn PokéCoins too.



Daily each Parked Pokemon will reward you with 10 PokeCoins and 500 Stardust.
