Oh yeah, I know. I had gotten to that point and beat him an additional 2 times, but the game would not respond to me winning the battle. Was very frustrating.
Ah right that could be very annoying, what I have happen on occasion is that after I clear out a gym and it returns to a grey state when I go to leave a pokemon there and claim it... my game needs to restart and someone else can drop in there guys around me lol, the game really feels like it's in a beta or alpha stage right now which is putting off the casual player which is a shame really.
Still great mobile ap tho, the best so far imo.
