The story of Pokémon GO can be summed up as Veni, vidi, vici (I came; I saw; I conquered). Within days of it's release, the whole world seemed to became obsessed with it. However, the multiplayer interaction in Pokémon GO is very limited as of now. The only way people can interact with other in the world of Pokémon GO is via Gym (Lure Module doesn't provide a way of interaction, though it affects all nearby trainers). Defending and attacking gyms is something really cool and important Pokémon GO. Certainly there are still many other in game process you have to complete and many other crucial points that needs your attention, but Gym battle has many advantages that can not be ignored. If it's so important to go to gyms, what are the best tips them?
There isn't much for you to do in battle, the hard work is for the Pokémon themselves. Overall, there are two crucial things that need to be taken into account in the battle: the CP (Combat Power) and the Pokémon's element, which can have an advantage or disadvantage against the opponent. However, there are some hidden attributes that can make a difference during the fight. Because of this, we will list what are the best Pokémon for each situation. Let's check out.

Why are there three distinct categories?
It may seem strange, but there are three hidden attributes that make a difference during battle: strength, defense and stamina. The first two are easy to understand, while the third means the speed at which the special bar increases, i.e. how long it takes to load a special moveset.
With this in mind, it becomes easier to take into account the status of each Pokémon and create categories. Still confused? Consider this example: put a Arcanine against another Arcanine with the same amount of CP does not give a chance of a fair fight because he has more attacking attributes than defensing, causing the defender at a disadvantage, even if the combat value is the same.
