Is it possible to deploy more than one Pokemon in a gym? And how many gyms can you be in?

You can be in as many as 20 gyms at once, but you cannot employ more than one of your own Pokémon at a single gym.

Gyms can hold up to 6 Pokémon, however each trainer can only have one of their own Pokémon on any given gym.

You can have 1 Pokémon in up to 20 gyms, but the maximum defender bonus you can collect from owning gyms is 50. For example, if I had Pokémon posted at 15 different gyms, I could at most collect 50 Pokécoins every 24 hours.

The gym mechanism has changed drastically since Pokemon Go first launched, so here is an updated answer for the new mechanics:

Is it possible to put more than one Pokemon in a gym?

In a single gym, no, you can only put one Pokemon per Gym. But, you can have up to 20 Pokemon defending different gyms.


Some other things to keep in mind:

  • Gyms only have 6 slots for Pokemon. If all the slots are taken, the button to add a Pokemon will not appear.
  • You can only put Pokemon in either neutral (grey) Gyms, or gyms of your team colour i.e. Red (Team Valor), Blue (Team Mystic) or Yellow (Team Instinct).
    • You will need to battle and knock out Pokemon defending a gym of a different colour in order to return the gym to 'Neutral' status and add a Pokemon of your own.
    • Pokemon are knocked out when their Motivation (CP Heart) reaches 0. You may need to battle multiple times to knock Pokemon out of the gym.
  • Gyms will only allow a single Pokemon with the same Pokedex number.
    • For example: You can't add a Charmander when there is already a Charmander defending the gym.
    • This includes alternate forms and costumes - you can't add both a Raichu and an Alolan Raichu to the Gym
    • Note that Pokemon evolutions don't share a Pokedex number, you can add your Charmander when there is a Charmeleon or Charizard on the gym.
  • The Gym's 'battle order' is based on the order in which you added a Pokemon. First Pokemon added, first to battle, and potentially the first to be knocked out.
  • You can earn coins for leaving Pokemon in Gyms. Pokémon accumulate one PokéCoin per 10 minutes when they're in a Gym.
    • You can earn a maximum of 50 coins per day.
    • Coins are awarded when your Pokemon is knocked out of a gym

You can only have 1 of your own at a gym. Once it has been defeated you can take the gym back and add the same or a new one. You can add as many Pokemon to different gyms as you like but you only get the "defense bonus" from 10 gyms.

You can only have 1 per gym. You can have as many gyms as you want.

That being said, each gym has a base level. One Pokémon per per level. You level a gym up by training on it. It is based purely off of prestige. So if a gym is level two with 4k/8k...i believe you have to get the gym to 8k prestige before it's level 3 and another Pokémon can be placed there.

One Pokemon per gym. Up to 20 gyms.

More gyms = more coins from your gym reward (up to 50), which you get when your Pokémon is knocked out.
