Pokemon GO gym training now involve six Pokemon

In the Pokemon games and anime, a trainer can battle with as much as 6 Pokemon, depending on the agreed rules of the battle or a gym. In fact, in the game you can really only have 6 with you at a time, sending the others back to “storage”. In Pokemon GO, however, training inside gyms has been limited to one and only one Pokemon at a time. Well, that is until now. Niantic Labs has announced an update that will finally bring gym training on par with gym battles, as well as expected Pokemon consistency, by allowing you to have six at a time during your session.

Niantic has a set of features up its sleeve that they hope will not only bring the game back near its peak in global users, it'll bring in new players as well.

Niantic doesn't need to pay attention to what's worked before - they need to keep innovating.
