Opposing Gym question..how does it work?

Asked: Jul 24 2016 | 8:41 pm EDT 1491 Views 4 Answers View Best Answer

I've battled in my own color gym and have won 10 out of 40ish battles. I revive my guys and all is good.
I have not fought in any opposing color gyms because i thought I would loose my guy forever when I lost. Am I wrong? Ive tried to find the answer but can't.
I've noticed I've never been able to use Revive and am thinking that maybe it is for your Pokeymon if you loose when fighting in an opposing color gym.
Any insight would really be appreciated. I dont want to loose the Pokeymon's that Ive collected.

No, you don't lose them. You can revive them, I did it quite a bit. Sometimes the servers get buggy with gym battles and you have to wait and reset your game for a while for it to catch up.

Very cool. I have got some really powerful Pokeymen. This will be fun!

Your Pokemon do not faint when battling your team controlled Pokemon. They faint when you try to capture a gym. Having said that, either way you still will gain some xp. So it's a win win. The only additional advantage is that if you capture a opposing teams gym you can get a defender bonus of 10 pokecoins and some stardust.
