Battle Basics

Battles in Pokemon Go can only occur at a Gym. Whether you’re training at a friendly Gym or challenging an opposing team, you’ll need to know the basics.

Battles are in real time which demands you to act quickly. Simply tap the screen to attack with your Pokemon’s basic attack and swipe left or right to dodge before your opponent’s attack hits.

Once you’ve filled up some of the blue meter below your Pokemon’s health bar by attacking normally, you can unleash a more powerful attack by holding down on the screen before releasing.

Battle Wiki

The Pokemon GO Battle Wiki is a comprehensive Gym battle handbook for Pokemon GO, highlighting various aspects of popular Pokemon.

The Battle Wiki doesn’t feature all Pokemon in Pokemon GO, only focusing on the most important and useful ones. Our strong belief is that some of the Pocket Monsters in GO were made just for collection purposes.
