When you put a Pokemon to defend a Gym, it places depending on its CP but if two pokemon have the same CP where is it placed? Chronologically? Alphabetically? and if so, ascending or descending?

  • In my own experience it usually then relates to the HP of the pokemon, the one with the higher HP being the one on the higher level. – Daniel Jul 20 '16 at 11:50
  • @daniel, i dont get what you say about " being the one on the higher level". hypothetically are both the same level. – lois6b Jul 20 '16 at 11:52
  • I meant higher level in terms of positioning in the gym so the lower level ( being the one with the lowest CP) is the pokemon you battle first. The top level being the one you battle last. If one CP is equal to another (probably a rare case but I have seen it at the gym close to where I work) then the one with the higher HP will be on the higher level. – Daniel Jul 20 '16 at 11:58
  • aahh ok. im not sure right now (and cant check). is the hp revealed while checking a gym? – lois6b Jul 20 '16 at 12:00

    Not as far as I know, but I do know it can't be alphabetical as the pokemon on top was a Machoke and second an Exeggutor. both with 780 CP but characteristically the Machoke would have the higher HP. I could be wrong... but that is how I see it when the neighboring office keeps stealing the gym from me xD – Daniel Jul 20 '16 at 12:06

It is ordered by who has more HP which is health so this is what happens when a Pokémon has the same CP (combat Power)
