Pokemon Go Glitch Lets You Hold on to Gyms Indefinitely

    Pokemon Go has seen its fair share of exploits and things that weren't supposed to happen, and now there seems to be a new glitch that could help players hold on to gyms until Niantic releases a patch to fix it.
    Players compete over gyms by tapping on their opponent's Pokemon. Once a gym is cleared out, players can put one of their own creatures into it, making the gym their own. However, when a player puts an egg in the gym, they can hold on to the gym without worry: enemy players can't attempt a gym takeover against an egg. You can see for yourself in the video below (via Eurogamer).

    Eggs are normally used for hatching new Pokemon by walking certain distances. Because they have no stats, they can't participate in battles, meaning players can sit on a gym indefinitely. This also means these players can take advantage of the Pokecoin system, which grants owners in-game currency every day they're in control of the gym.
    Niantic is likely to fix this glitch, as this exploit has the potential to render a core part of the game broken. We've contacted Niantic for comment and will update this article as we receive more information.
