A Japanese coach of Pokémon GO managed to keep one gym for 1,422 days, or almost four consecutive years, after placing a Blissey on it. Considering that Pokémon GO was launched in Japan about 1,800 days ago (July 22, 2016) and that keeping a gym for more than one day is often very difficult, this is an absolute record, even if in this case there is the makeup. The man also provided a source image to testify to his record and then explained how he got it.
The previous record of keeping a gym was held by Reddit user BootsMade4Walking, who managed to hold out for 1,332 days and seven hours, only to lose it to someone with tampered GPS coordinates.
But let’s get to the system used by the record manager, which is nothing more than the exploitation of a dictatorship. The brave Japanese is a university professor from Tokyo, who defines himself “the strongest Pokémon GO player at the University of Tokyo” (who knows if he also reported it on his resume). When he opened the gym he was in China for work. Usually he doesn’t have free internet access there, but that morning he managed to log in with his Google account. Now, Pokémon GO cannot be played in China, despite the roads being mapped. Did you understand the trick? Basically the gym is located in an area where there are no players. In fact, poor Blissey is more a prisoner than a hero. China always gives us great satisfaction
