How it works

Of all the complex systems at play in Pokémon GO, battling at the gym is by far the most challenging part. Win the Gym! provides a range of tools that assists with this task. Using easy and intuitive interfaces you can choose the strongest Pokémon, evolve your Pokémon at the right time and easily check base stats.


For those new to the game: All Pokémon creatures are assigned a Pokémon type. In total, there are 18 Pokémon types. In Pokémon GO you can find a Pokémon’s type by clicking on it in the Pokédex. Each type has several strengths and weaknesses in both attack and defense. When you battle at the gym, you should use a Pokémon that has a type advantage over the defending Pokémon as this will render your attacks "super effective". There’s a lot to keep track of and many advanced gamers rely on complex charts to piece together which Pokémon to pick. When you are on the GO, this can be quite inconvenient. This is where the Win the Gym! Selector comes into play. The Selector provides you with a player-friendly user interface that allows you to simply select your Pokémon opponent and does all the math for you. Based on the existing Pokémon strength tables, The Selector provides you with a selection of the best-suited attacker Pokémon for the selected defender. With the Win the Gym! Selector, when you get to the gym, you get there to win!


Is your 200 CP Charmander going to evolve into something higher than a 300 Charmeleon? Or should you better evolve your 100 CP Eevee? Our Win the Gym! Evolver allows you to calculate how evolving your Pokémon will affect your CP. The calculations are based on the most current Pokémon Go statistics. To use the Evolver choose the Pokémon and input its current CP. Based on this, our tool will calculate an average CP and a CP range for the evolved Pokémon. Based on this trainers can decide which Pokemon to evolve.


The Pokédex is an easy to use cataloge providing a wide variety of base stats about each Pokémon. It is supposed to be a handy encyclopedia of Pokémon species, types, evolutions, and moves. This Pokédex is an ongoing project, check it for updated information frequently.
