And if nothing has changed then can only think that I messed up twice in a row when selecting the team. I've certainly done that before when picking mons for the last spots that were already selected.

If it changed it was a while ago, first week of gen 2 being out was working with a group on a gym battling against Blisseys to prestige it. Was getting 219 a battle with my 23xx Vaporeon v a 23xx Blissey.

Just tried Prestiging properly for the first time. This is going to change my life. Getting 1800+ points for defeating 2 pokemon is amazing. This is going to put a lot more gyms in reach for me.

Shit man...sounds like you've been doin' it unnecessarily hard all this time.

Just gotta use type advantages and you're saving yourself heaps of time but you might end up using a few more options.

Pretty much. I would normally brute force it with high CP Pokemon. That's fine up until the gym hits lv7. At the higher levels it takes way too much time which is why i would normally pass over lv7+ gyms unless the gap was less than 5k

So hold up a sec, what's the best way to prestige then? Can we get a quick point-form guide? I too CBF trying to add myself to high-level gyms coz you get bugger-all points for your efforts. I always try to have my guys lower than the first guy on the gym but that's about it.

As I understand it for maximum effect you need all of yours to be at 50% of the lowest mons CP. So if the lowest mon is 2200 don't use anything over 1100.

You should still get a good point bonus if you in the 2/3 to 3/4 CP range.

Yes half the cp of defending Mon gets you 1k. So 3k dragonites I use my army of 1500 seadras and lapras.

Note all mons in your team must be under half cp for 1k per defeat reward

I've been doing it the slow way too. And it's so annoying when someone comes in and snipes it. I'll try the other way now.

Can't help sniping but this method make life easier.. Do need a range of mons good for presitiging.. Type advantage is all important as you get killed quickly at half cp so dodge dodge dodge that dodge ball/wrench.

Keep a range of seadras /wigglies /tangles/vapes.. As good gen 1 mons for this.. Gen two.. Lanturn is good.. High hp/mix electric water type. Ferret is a high hp version of rattata. Azumarill are good due to high hp too.

Edit.. Forgot my new favourite at low cp... Wobbuffet... So much hp makes it so hard to kill.

Yeah, min-maxing is the best way unless it's a bunch of Blisseys, then brute force is the only way to go. That's why I've been trying to collect and hoard as much Dragonite candies as possible so I can just pommel my way through them.

And to help that cause; I just caught a 12/14/15 91% Relaxo with Zen Headbutt/Hyper Beam at level 24 earlier today. Highest DPS possible and just a tad bit more levelling up and should be able to get through anything without much effort

I'm glad I didn't candy the two 650CP snorlax's I picked up on the weekend now.

I further tried things out this evening just targeting the bottom mon in the gym and was getting an easy 1000 points at the cost of 2 revives and a few potions each time.

The problem i have now is that I dont have enough of the "smaller potions". It seems a waste to dig into my stockpile of 160 max potions for low CP pokemon.

If you're just using that single battle strat, you might as well use those Max Potions.
