Longest gym stint

What was / is the longest consecutive time you’ve had a critter at a gym?

Before last month when I went on a vacation to the west coast, my longest might have been three days. Might. I put a 2431 Blissey in a rural gym near my folks’ house on April 13, and it has been 10 coins every day since.

I think Dos and/or Ghost have a dragonite or two in a long-forgotten gym, and they will probably “win” this contest.

Queen Dos will own this one. Or maybe Kid or Gerd. I have a Dragonite and my 44Blissey still in gyms but have no idea how long they have been there. Is there any way to tell? Heck Buddha, going on 1 1/2 months for you?! That is impressive. Apparently your folks aren’t knocking you out of the gym. Or are y’all on the same team?

No clue.  Wish they recorded this kind of thing for you in the game.  Back in the day (from October to late March), I had a lot of long-standing gyms.  Lately, I lose 2-3 a night, so it’s a never-ending battle.  It does seem like there are fewer spoofers out there now, at least.  Botting has taken a huge hit with Niantic’s latest anti-botting measures, supposedly, but I still see some instant attacks on anything I try to place in my hometown, so some gym bots are still in operation.

Edit: 3-6 come back to me each night now.  Wow, people are more active out there than I’ve seen in a long time.

The one by my folks’ house is at the end of a peninsula with one stop within five miles (it’s 50 feet away). It’s not a hub by any stretch, so no one is likely to seek it out. I got lucky with that, and I’ve expected it to fall a long time ago.

I try to keep 15 gyms at a time, I have had several of them for 3+ months now. I always try to find gyms that are not accessible from a car and find more luck that way.

We have a couple of gyms in rural TN when we went there for a wedding in November. We also have some in rural areas when we took our son to Boy Scout camp in December. Our neighborhood gym is in the middle of a small pond next to a busy intersection. No place to park & has lots of mosquitoes when it’s hot. The last time we had to retake that gym was when Niantic re-did & made it easier to take down a gym.

My longest gym is in a high traffic area, and it used to change hands several times a day. After we took the gym, a crazy phenomenon happened, people from same faction started to arrive and knock the lower pokemons off and put stronger one in their place. At first I thought that that was unfair to the original players who put a lot of effort to take over the gym, but now I am not too sure that it’s not a bad idea.

Not a fan of this practice.  In fact, I have a few unprintable words to call people who do this.

I understand completely, both my daughter and wife got knocked out, I’m the only one left on that gym. However, at least they are real players, that physically show up at the gyms.

Pretty sure those are the same words I used when I hatched another pineco last night.
