Why did you join your Team?

    Joining one of the three Teams in Pokemon GO - Instinct, Mystic, or Valor - is a required action for all Pokemon GO players when they reach Level 5. What went into your decision to join the Team you picked? Was it because you could relate to their philosophy, liked the design of their Leader, or something else?

    My reason for joining Team Mystic was really shallow, but the decision was a no-brainer for me. Articuno is my all-time favorite Pokemon. Like, #1 favorite, I love no other Pokemon the way I love Articuno. Since Articuno is the mascot of Team Mystic, I naturally joined Team Mystic.

    Upon closer inspection, I realized that I agree with a lot of Team Mystic's values and philosophies. I like to think a lot, and my favorite way of playing Pokemon GO is completing the Pokedex rather than touching the Gyms.

    However, if I were to join a team based entirely on personal values, I'd join Instinct, because I strongly believe in loving and trusting your Pokemon, and I usually make decisions based on how I feel. But I try to make decisions based on thinking as well as feeling. And then, of course, there's Articuno. So I'm Mystic through and through, even though I don't really play the Gyms.

    What about you? Why did you join your Team?
  2. I joined Mystic as Articuno is my favourite of the legendary bird trio, and blue is my favourite colour. Though Fire types are my favourite.
    I'm not smart though, personally I think I'd suit Instinct better. But I'm happy with my team :)

    I joined Valor because I thought Candela's silhouette looked cute, and I was proven right when the designs were fully revealed :)

    I joined valor for several reasons:
    1.) I love moltres out of the three birds as my favorite
    2.) besides fairy types and grass types I love fire types as well which charmander was my first Pokemon in red version
    3.)I just felt Valor was the way to go since I love battling personally

    I joined Team Mystic because like some others, my favorite of the 3 Birds was Articuno, and blue being a color that I like.

    I joined Instinct because I knew it's going to be underrated and most of the people will go for the mainstream red/blue

    Knew a couple of people who went Instinct already and the gyms which are on 3 of the 4 corners on the same block were usually Yellow.

    I joined Mystic because I love Articuno, and while my favorite color is green, I felt Blue was close enough. However, I feel my personality matches more of an Instinct member as I am about winning with my favorites;152;

    I joined Valor because I like fire type pokemons. Right now, I have charizard and Flareon with high CPs!

    I actually prefer Zapdos over all of them but I wanted to find a middle ground since Team Instinct/Mystic were too (un)popular and Valor sounded pretty cool in my opinion so I went with that team as my choice.
  13. I chose Instinct because I like yellow, Zapdos, and Spark, and the motivation behind the team is my favorite of the three.

    I misread the reasons for joining a team. I thought the qualities for each team were the qualities your Pokemon would evolve into. Doh!

    I chose Valor because I wanted Strength to be a key attribute in my evolved Pokemon. Did anyone else do this?

    The only reason why I joined Mystic was because at the time most of the gyms around me were all Mystic, and I wanted to go with the crowd. And then the Instinct team took over so now I'm a lone blue wolf, searching to find my pack again...

    I chose Charmander as my starter. I joined Team Red.

    My team is Team Mystic, and I joined it since it was popular, and members in my family who do play the game are part of it. :D

    Mystic, since values of intelligence and wisdom suit me best. I also like Articuno the best out of the three birds... but that didn't really factor into my decision.

    I have a couple of reasons why I picked Mystic. I love the color blue, it's one of my favorite colors. I love the sade of Blue on the Team Mystic design, Articuno is my favorite of the three legendary birds, and I just love the name as well.
