Pokemon Go Gyms Trick – How to Take Over Gyms Using Low CP Pokemon

This Pokemon Go gym trick requires strict timing, precision and can be used against you if you are not careful enough. The trick essentially revolves around yellow flash that appears whenever your Pokemon is about to get hit during a gym battle.

The idea is to immediately dodge whenever you see the yellow flash, quickly attack, rinse and repeat! When executed properly, you should be able to win battles without getting hit even once.

To reiterate, you basically need to swipe twice to either side whenever you see the yellow flash and perform a quick attack after the dodge animation is complete. It is crucial that you only quick-attack after the dodge animation, otherwise the opponent will be able to use the technique on you.

Another important thing that you need to note here is to avoid special attacks as they leave your Pokemon open to counter-attacks. Moreover, it has been proven to work against Pokemon having 200-300 CP difference and no more.
