Developer Niantic announced over the weekend that Pokemon Go – their augmented reality monster catching game – will be getting a tweak to one of its core features. This time, Gyms are in their sights.
As we continue to make improvements to Pokémon GO, we have made an enhancement to the Gym experience for Trainers of all levels. In an upcoming version of Pokémon GO, when training at a friendly Gym, Trainers will be able to bring six Pokémon to battle instead of one. In addition, the CP of the Pokémon you are training against may be temporarily adjusted lower during your training session to generally match your Pokémon’s battle capabilities.
The level scaling looks to stop trainers completely dominating Gyms, and giving newer players something to do.
No release window has been given for the update.
