    Both, the coins are based on an hourly accumulation. You get them when they get kicked out.

    This new system is stupid.

    It looks like the main purpose is to keep someone from holding a total stranglehold over the gym once they take it. In theory you can still do this...you just have to be VERY dedicated to it, instead of setting your Pokemon and forgetting it.

    Can you still only get Pokeballs through Pokestops? Because if so RIP still.

    Pretty sure I got a ball from a gym earlier.

    The gym system itself doesn't seem too bad to me but they definitely intentionally cratered the rate at which you can get coins for free. At 1 coin per hour it takes one pokemon 100 hours to make $1 worth of coins. That's brutal.

    Raids appear to be unlocked. My wife's account is only level 25 and we were able to play. Kinda interesting, got a Weezing off a gym next to us.

    Since gyms went live my Gyarados has been living in a local Church Gym. There's another gym at a park nearby that I tossed my Flareon in, he lasted about 5 hours and got a notification on my phone saying "Your Pokemon battled hard and has returned to you!". I checked the shop and noticed my coin total went from 450 to 455.

    Friday afternoon (yesterday) during lunch I tossed my Charizard into that same park gym around 12:30pm. On my way home tonight around 11:30? I swung by and saw he was still in park gym, feed some berries then headed home. Just checked my phone (1:30AM now) and my Charizard is back, no notification that he had battled hard and returned, and now my coins are at 495 from 455. Gyarados still hanging out in Church Gym...

    I don't understand how this coin system works... Did a raid spawn at that gym and since it was under my teams control I got... 40 coins?

    Your pokemon gains coins at a rate of (currently) 1 coin every 10 minutes. When they get returned to you you get the coins that they collected (up to a max of 50 combined, per day). I'd assume the lack of a push notification telling you your Charizard got returned is just a game bug. Someone battled it down.

    Shouldn't I have gotten 50 then for Charizard being in the Park from noon to midnight? O-o
