There are currently three different player teams in Pokémon Go. These teams include Team Mystic, Team Valor, and Team Instinct.

After the player reaches level 5, they can choose a team by tapping a Gym. A Gym can only be controlled by one team at a time. If a Gym is controlled by the player's team, they can train at it and add one of their own Pokémon to defend it. If a Gym is controlled by a rival team, the player can battle it to decrease its Prestige; when a Gym's Prestige reaches zero, any nearby player can claim it for their own team.

Teams[edit | edit source]

Team of Spark


Team Instinct relies on strength in battle. Team members believe that Pokémon are stronger and more warmhearted than humans and are interested in enhancing their Pokémon's natural power.
Team of Blanche


Team Mystic relies on analyzing every situation. Team members believe that Pokémon have immeasurable wisdom and are interested in learning more about why Pokémon experience evolution.
Team of Candela


Team Valor relies on a trainer's instincts. Team members believe that Pokémon have excellent intuition and are interested in learning more about its connection to the egg hatching process.

Features[edit | edit source]

Capturing Gyms[edit | edit source]

Teams can battle rival team's Pokémon in Gyms. When all rival Pokémon are defeated, players can place their own Pokémon to defend the gym.

Pokemon Appraisal[edit | edit source]

When a player joins a team, that team's leader will also provide a Pokémon Appraisal system. The information is the same between all three teams, but each team leader has different ways of communicating when appraising a Pokémon.

Changing Teams[edit | edit source]

Once every 365 days, a player is able to change their current team with the use of a Team Medallion. This item can be purchased through the Shop for 1,000 Pokécoins.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Prior to version 0.135.0, Trainers were unable to change their team after choosing one.
  • Players can continue to play without selecting a team but will not be able to take part in gym battles.
