Pokemon Go Update: Easier Gym Training and Capture Bonus

Niantic announced earlier this week that the upcoming update will change the way trainers train friendly gyms and finally a use for those medals you got before.

The first announcement was the capture bonus rewards:

Earn a New Capture Bonus to Increase the Odds of Catching Rare Pokémon
We want to give you a sneak peek of a feature coming soon to Pokémon GO. We are adding a new feature which grants a catch bonus when you earn medals based on catching certain types of Pokémon (Kindler, Psychic, Gardener, etc.). These new bonuses will give you a better chance of capturing Pokémon with a related type. For example, as you reach a higher tier for the Kindler Medal, your bonus to catch Fire-type Pokémon such as Charmander, Vulpix and Ponyta increases.
Trainers can work their way to a new tier by catching many Pokémon of the same type. If a Pokémon has multiple types, your bonus will be the average of your bonuses for each type. For example, Pidgey is both Normal and Flying type. Your bonus in this case would be the average of your Normal-type and Flying-type bonuses.
Look forward to this new feature coming soon!

The Pokémon GO team

This means that for each medal you have for that type of Pokemon, you will get an equivalent capture rate bonus. For example, of you have a gold medal for capturing water type Pokemon, then capturing a Dewgong would be easier than before.

The next announcement was fro the friendly gym training update:

Gym Training Just Got Easier...
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.
No matter what your level, you can now have an impact on your team’s Gym. Walk with your Buddy Pokémon to that nearby landmark and show your Team Leader that you can battle with the best!

The Pokémon GO team

You can finally choose six Pokemon when training your own gym and the CP of those Pokemon will adjust to the highest CP of your available Pokemon. Training will be much easier now compared before.

These updates will be reflected on the next patch (prolly next week) so be ready fellow trainers!
