As those who play Pokemon Go know, there are 3 teams: Team Valor, Team Mystic, and Team Instinct. Team Valor is led by Candela and their color is Red. Team Mystic is led by Blanche and they have Blue as their color. The final team, Team Instinct, is led by Spark. They are represented by the color yellow. While three is a good selection, what if there were more?
There has already been talk of this on the 'interweb.' Illustrations have popped up of possible team names and logos.
Team Harmony: Cyan/Blue, logo has Lugia on an arrow head-like shape
Team Rebirth: Orange, logo has Ho-oh on a swirl
Team Omega: Red, logo has Groudon on an omega symbol
These were just a few of the many teams that have been thought up. There are more being thought of by random people every day. Seoxys is the artist of a good amount of the teams.
A little while ago Team GO Rocket was added. Team GO Rocket is Team Rocket modified to fit in with the mechanics of Pokemon Go. There are events around them. They mainly hang out at PokeStops and battle anyone who spins the Stop they are at. You can tell if a PokeStop is being controlled by Team GO Rocket when it is black instead of blue. When you battle a Team GO Rocket Grunt, they will have shadow-cloaked Pokemon. If you defeat the Grunt, they will leave the Pokemon behind. From there, the player has three chances to catch it before it flees. It will keep its shadows until you "purify" it. To do this, you simply go into the Pokemon's menu and press Purify. This costs stardust and candy.
The three main teams in Pokemon Go (Valor, Mystic, and Instinct) have been at "war" ever since the game was released. Instinct is the least liked. I think the reason is is because they are known to be all about loyalty and friendliness. They could never give away any of their pokemon, which is actually an admirable trait if you ask me. But you didn't so moving on. Instinct also has the least gyms. Valor has the most, followed by Mystic. The war has managed to get so big that businesses will give discounts to the team they favor.
I hope this article was helpful. This was my first one but it seemed to go pretty well. Have a nice day and happy reading!
