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]
|Valor, Team of Candela||Mystic, Team of Blanche||Instinct, Team of Spark|
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Players can continue to play without selecting a team but will not be able to take part in gym battles.
- Once a player selects a team they are currently unable to change teams.
