Say there is a level 7 gym, but with only 5 Pokemon in it. From highest ranked to lowest ranked, they are:

(1) Snorlax
(2) Dragonite
(3) Vaporeon
(4) Vileplume
(5) Jolteon
(6) ~ empty ~
(7) ~ empty ~

The current prestige is 23,000.

Does an attacker fight Jolteon down to 20,000 and then start fighting Vileplume?
Does an attacker fight Jolteon down to 12,000 and then start fighting Vileplume?

  • the latter, assuming you mean jolteon leaves?

  • 1
    You fight all of them in a row anyway.

  • @Arperum True, but I was interested in, given unfilled positions, if the attacker would fight Jolteon, or Vileplume, for a longer period of time. Sep 11, 2016 at 13:22
  • In that case is the answer exactly what you are after

You must reduce the prestige so that there in not enough space for Jolteon before you no longer have to face Jolteon.

It works just like if there were Pokemon in those slots. You will need to remove 3 levels before Jolteon leaves and Vileplume is the lowest defender.
