So you fight (or avoid) the monsters in the Gate Location BEFORE going thru the Gate??? (cause combat takes place in Movement Phase) Guess I've been doing this wrong, too.
Yep and you have the correct reason as well. Monsters already on teh board are dealt with during Phase 2 - Movement. You do not get sucked through a gate until Phase 3 - Arkham Encounters.
