Ok, so I've been playing Pokemon Go literally the entire day for the last 3 days and have gotten to the point where I can bring down a whole level 7 or 8 or maybe even 10 (which is the highest level) gym entirely by myself, which is quite a feat considering it takes a team of friends to do it usually, I can hit about 80% of gyms and beat it with my strongest pokemon (a Vapereon) and considering you have a line up of 6 pokemon that is quite impressive. There is a gym about a block away from me and I think I'll be taking it every night just for shits and giggles, but I doubt it will survive the night with just me defending it. Although other people in my team (team instinct or team yellow if you wanna talk colors) can add pokemon to it and train there. What people do is drive around in the whee hours of the night and take over gyms, the more you hold the more you collect after a period I think. (correct me if I'm wrong I've only been playing for three days) Me and a friend of mine and another guy in team instinct brought down a gym today but we lost it within 30 mins lol. My pokemon was able to beat the final one in the gym even if it was like a lot higher combat power/level than mine because my pokemon is pretty op. For anyone considering whether or not they should start playing it I say go for it, I am socializing a hell of a lot more since I started playing it and it is fun to go out there and talk to people that are like minded, you know that most of the people playing like video games so you already have something in common to begin with.
