'Pokemon Go' Latest News & Update: Pokemon Gyms Prestige Gains Are Back To Normal From The Previous Update
"Pokemon Go" updates were always coming along with new additions that make the game exciting for players. Now, Niantic Labs, the developer, and creator of the game, reverted back the Prestige gains in enemy and friendly gyms. The update was secretly patched and may be because of the issues about little gains and far away from access to enemy gyms.
Now, the gains are increased and reverted back to normal, rebalanced, and optimized for players. Gym battles are back to its incentives given to players who train and battle. Unlike before, friendly gyms take the time to strengthen and this can make players spend so much time or even a whole afternoon just to gain enough Prestige.
