Revised gyms

I’m obviously not the only one who had a problem with the gyms in Pokemon Go. So it’s cool to know that Niantic is changing them (among a lot of other upcoming updates). The new “motivation” system could be an interesting way to make gyms fresh again, with Pokemon becoming easier to defeat and, if I understand correctly, dropping out of gyms as their motivation becomes depleted–although I could see this becoming yet another system to reinforce the heaviest players and biggest payers (given that motivation can be renewed with special items). Maybe this will help fix the gyms, even if combat stays the same, but I have my reservations.

Then again, I’ve once more fallen away from regular Pokemon Go play, so I’m probably not the target audience. Maybe it’s a little silly to demand a space to be carved out for more casual players…
