Choosing Your Pokemon Go Team

After catching your first few Pokemon and visiting some Poke Stops, the first major milestone for an aspiring trainer is to select their Pokemon Go team. It is only after you select your Pokemon Go team that you can engpeople from pokemon go teamsage in the combat phase of the game. This is done at level 5 and marks the start of the game proper.

I mean, running around town catching Pokemon is all well and good, but at some point you are going to want to do battle at a gym. Before you can do this, however, you must select a team.

There are three teams to choose from, each a different color. The choices are red, blue or yellow. Fans of the classic Gameboy games will likely recognize this as a nod to the series’s roots. The first of the many game titles were of course ‘Pokemon Red’, ‘Pokemon Blue’ and ‘Pokemon Yellow’.

As well as the three colors, each team is also represented by a legendary bird Pokemon.

 

Team Mystic

The leader of Team Mystic is known as Blanche. They have been assigned the color blue. According to Adobe research and the Pokemon go online community, this team is by far the most popular team.

Team Mystic is represented by the legendary ice Pokemon, Articuno.

Blanche’s team statement:

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

 

Team Valor

For those with a fire inside perhaps the best choice of team would be Valor. They are represented by the color red and their leader is called Candela. Whilst they trail behind Mystic in global popularitpeople from pokemon go teamsy, they are still a hugely popular choice with the second largest membership.

The flame winged Moltres is the mascot for the hotheaded red-team.

Candela’s team statement:

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!

Team Instinct

Finally, there is Instinct. Their particular leader is known as Spark. Whilst they are the smallest team numerically, they still make up 23% of the player pool.

A stylized portrait of the electrifying Zapdos is the chosen emblem for Instinct – guaranteed to shock the opposition into submission!

Spark’s team statement:

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

Bottom Line: Which Team Should I Choose?

It doesn’t appear that there are any particular advantages or disadvantages to your Pokemon Go team selection.

If you are playing with friends and want to work together it would make sense to pick the same Pokemon Go team as them. However, if you have a competitive crew of trainers to hang out with maybe you’d get more fun by all selecting different ones to promote a bit of rivalry.

 

There are also a number of rumors circulating on what your team choice could eventually mean. The main one involves the potential appearance of the legendary bird mascots: Moltres, Articuno and Zapdos.

 

As you can see, it really doesn’t make a great deal of difference which of the Pokemon Go teams you select. The more time you waste thinking about which team is right for you, the less time you have to train.

Happy hunting!
