    Pokémon GO Teams and Gyms
    When you reach Level 5, you will unlock the access to the Gyms but before that you will be asked to select a team to join.

    Joining a team will determine what colour you go and allow you to team up with other players of your team or go against the other teams.

    There's three team in the game and you will be asked to choose one of them:
    [​IMG] Team Mystic: has the colour blue and the Legendary mascot is Articuno. The Leader is Blanche
    [​IMG] Team Instinct: has the colour yellow and the Legendary mascot is Zapdos. The Leader is Spark
    [​IMG] Team Valor: has the colour red and the Legendary mascot is Moltres. The Leader is Candela

    Like PokéStops, Gyms can be found at real locations in the world and can be seen by all players.

    All the Gyms have up to six Pokémon to defend the Gym. Pokémon now use motivation and are removed after their motivation has gone down. You can use berries to help your Pokémon recover some motivation.
    If you defeat all the Pokémon and their motivation reach zero, you will be able to claim the Gym. You can notice it because the gym will become white.
    Gyms can be spinned for item rewards, similar to PokéStops and you can get a Gym Badge. The Badge can level up and you will get more items from the Gym if you have the Gym Badge, or your team currently runs the Gym. If the Gym is under the control of your team you can station a Pokémon there in order to fortify the gym.

    Before May 2017 Gyms used the Prestige system.
    The gym's prestige is increased and decreased wheter or not a challenge has has been defeated or if a challenger has defeated the gym. If the prestige is 0 then the gym is lost and another team can claim it. You can notice it because the gym become white.
    If the Gym is under the control of your team you can station a Pokémon there in order to fortify the gym to don't lose prestige. As the gym increase the prestige, more players are able to place Pokémon there. You can also train one of your other Pokémon to the Gym to increase the prestige. If you fight a Gym that is from your team your Pokémon will not faint but their HP will be reduced to 1 and they will need to be healed.

    If a Gym is already claimed by another team, you can challenge that Gym using your own Pokémon. You will use a team of 6 Pokémon to engage a battle to decrease the prestige of the Gym you will claim control.

    The battles are simple and in real time: you simply click on the Pokémon you use and it will attack. As the Pokémon attack and his HP are lowered, a second attack is charged up (you can find it beside the CP) and you can use it if you hold the click on your Pokémon. You can also dodge your opponent's attacks by swiping left or right.
    Like in the core Pokémon series, the game use the weaknesses that exist between the various existing types in the games. You can find the Type Effectiveness table here.

    More than one trainer can fight one gym at a time. This means that you can attack a gym with someone at the same time.

    When you station a Pokémon in a Gym, you will notice a "Gym Badge" near him. You can't use this Pokémon until someone defeats it (this means that you can't power-up him, evolve him or use items on it).
    Once the Pokémon is defeated it will automatically return to your party.
