Pokémon GO - Update

The next big update has been announced for Pokémon GO. This update alters Gym Battles and adds new Raid Battle features. First Gyms will now give items, just like PokéStops and now have six different slots for each Gym. Each Pokémon has to be a unique species. Each Pokémon has motivation and as it wins or loses, its CP will temporarily decrease. If all motivation is lost, it returns to the trainer. There are now also GO Badges which get levelled up by battling, spinning the Gym disc and giving berries to Pokémon in the gym.
Raid Battles have also been announced. These cause a Gym to lose all its Pokémon and all nearby players can challenge it. If successful, then you have a chance to capture a strong Pokémon. This is done through special Premier Balls given if the Raid is successful. You can only use Premier Balls for these Pokémon so if you run out, you cannot capture. Raid Battles require use of a Raid Pass to participate. You can get one of these a day by visiting a gym, but you can only hold one at a time. You can also purchase a Premium Raid Pass from the game's shop for Coins. Raid Battles have a 5 minute times. You can also organise private raids
New items have also been confirmed and are only obtained by beating a Raid Battle Boss: A Rare Candy is a mysterious candy that, when used on a Pokémon, turns into that Pokémon's Candy. Golden Razz Berries will greatly increase your chances of catching a Pokémon you encounter in the wild and can also be given to a Pokémon assigned to a Gym to fully recover its motivation meter. Technical Machines are items you can use to permanently teach a Pokémon a new Fast Attack or Charged Attack.
No date has been given for the update, by Gyms will go offline later today
