Choosing Your Pokémon Go Team

By the time you reach Level 5, you have learned to acquire items from PokéStops, catch wild Pokémon, and evolve Pokémon. Congratulations, Trainer! Now it’s time to choose a team. Which one is right for you? It’s an important decision, because currently you cannot change your team after you’ve chosen it.

Team Valor

Color – Red
Mascot – Moltres, legendary fire Pokémon
Leader – Candela, who says:

Pokémon are stronger than humans, and they’re warmhearted too! I’m researching ways to enhance Pokémon’s natural power in the pursuit of true strength. There’s no doubt that the Pokémon our team have trained are the strongest in battle! Are you ready?

Team Mystic

Color – Blue
Mascot – Articuno, legendary ice Pokémon
Leader – Blanche, who says:

The wisdom of Pokémon is immeasurably deep. I am researching why it is that they evolve. My team? With our calm analysis of every situation, we can’t lose!

Team Instinct

Color – Yellow
Mascot – Zapdos, legendary electric Pokémon
Leader – Spark, who says:

Pokémon are creatures with excellent intuition. I bet the secret to their intuition is related to how they’re hatched. Come on and join my team! You never lose when you trust your instincts!

Team Choice Pro Tips:

  • If you have local friends playing Pokémon Go, find out what team(s) they are on. You can help each other if you are on the same team.
  • Look at gyms in your area and see what color they are. The team with the most gyms is dominating your area. You could choose to join that team and rule with them, or be an underdog and choose a different team and help unseat the current gym leaders.
  • The team you choose doesn’t affect your game play much, so don’t stress over it too much.

So which team did you pick? Let us know in the comments section!
