Pokemon Go Gym Badges Full Guide
Each Gym you interact with will give you a Gym Badge unique to that location. Simply spinning the photo disc will unlock the opening Basic badge.To view your badges, go to your Trainer Profile, scroll down to Gym Badges, then List. You can also view them all by using the globe icon in the bottom left.From there, Gym Badges come in Basic, Bronze, Silver and Gold varieties, each offering improved rewards when spinning the Photo Disc, and possibly during Raid encounters.
How to get Bronze, Silver and Gold Gym Badges
We do know we’ll be able to level up Gym Badges by performing the following activities (thanks to the Silph Road sub-Reddit here and here for clarifying some of these numbers)
- Adding Pokémon to the Gym (+ 100 Badge XP)
- Holding a creature at the Gym (+1 Badge XP per minute)
- Defeating a defending Pokémon (CP of Pokémon defeated divided by 100)
- Winning a Raid battle (+ 1000 Badge XP)
- Giving Berries to Pokémon held at the Gym (+ 10 Badge XP, as well as 20 Stardust and a possibility of Candy)
By performing the above activities, whether you are passive and prefer to increase Motivation as you pass a Gym or are actively battling and holding creatures there, you can easily level up your Badge over time and increase the rewards you receive.
The tier requirements are as follows:
|Badge||Additional XP||Total XP|
|Bronze||500 XP||500 XP|
|Silver||3500 XP||4000 XP|
|Gold||26,000 XP||30,000 XP|
