Trainers in Pokémon GO belong to one of three teams: Valor, Mystic, Instinct. Each team has a leader who influences the direction the team takes. You join a team by visiting a Gym, and must be at least level 5. Niantic has stated there is no switching teams at this time.


Candela – Team Valor (Red)

I’m Candela – Team Valor’s leader! 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?

Spark – Team Instinct (Yellow)

Hey! The name’s Spark – the leader of Team Instinct. 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!
