Pokemon GO: How to Dodge Effectively in Battle

At first it might look like all you can do in Pokemon GO gym battles is tap the screen like a mad man to attack your opponent, but you can actually use special attacks and even dodge incoming attacks as well.

The process is simple: when you see the opposing Pokemon about to lunge forward with their attack, or when you see yellow flash on the edge of your screen, simply swipe left or right. A message should pop up notifying you of your successful dodge, if it was indeed successful. If it wasn’t, you’ll just sustain the normal damage from the attack.
