Pokemon-go – Should I wait to reclaim a gym


I had recently taken over a local gym and put my Pokemon there to defend it, I collected my coins from the Defender bonus. This is the first time I've done that. There is a clock still counting down even though I have seen that my gym has been taken over already. Should I wait until the clock runs out to reclaim my gym or should I reclaim the same gym right away?

Best Answer

You can claim the gym right away, getting xp for it.

If you lose it, you can reclaim it (getting more xp, yay). If you don't lose it, you can get the coins as soon as the clock has counted down.
