I've decided to post a typed copy of each Team Leader's game intro together with a deeper look into what each team is supposed to mean and represent provided by a blog at this link - www.polygon.com/2016/7/11/1214…Note:
I am going in the order that the game reveals each team in.Team Instinct(Yellow) Leader:
"Hey! The name's Spark--the leader of Team Instinct. Pokemon 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!"Blog Description:
"Spark is the leader of Team Instinct, the yellow team. Spark is all about trusting your instincts — hence the name of the team. (Spark is not one for nuance.) If you feel that Pokémon are innately talented, and that success in battle can be chalked up to trusting your gut, Instinct is probably the way to go. Team Instinct's mascot is the legendary bird Zapdos."Team Mystic(Blue) Leader:
"I am Blanche, leader of Team Mystic. The wisdom of Pokemon is immeasurably deep.
I am researching why it is that they evolve.
My team? With our calm analysis of every situation, we can't lose!"Blog Description:
"Blanche is in charge of Team Mystic, the brainiest of the bunch. The blue team is most interested in evolution; beyond that, the members of this faction are cool to a point of intimidation. If you're interested in the science behind what makes Pokémon tick — and are convinced that keeping calm is all it takes for success — choose Team Mystic. Mystic is represented by Articuno, the icy legendary."Team Valor(Red) Leader:
"I'm Candela--Team Valor's leader! Pokemon are stronger than humans, and they're warmhearted, too!
I'm researching ways to enhance Pokemon's natural power in the pursuit of true strength. There's no
doubt that the Pokemon our team have trained are the strongest in battle! Are you ready?Blog Description:
"Candela is the head of the red team, and she's got spunk for days. Her M.O. is very much in line with what Pokémon trainers have been taught from the get-go: To be the very best Pokémon master, you've got to train for it. Bonding with your Pokémon helps to tap into their strengths, according to Team Valor. If that sounds good to you, go Valor. Also, if you like the fire bird legendary Moltres, that's another reason to go with Valor; Moltres is its mascot."
I personally like these descriptions of each team since they help offer some more depth to this particular game dynamic, but in more of a "storyline" type of way. I think it would be interesting if they introduced an "evil" corporation similar to Team Rocket, Plasma, etc. with enemy NPC trainers that spawn randomly for Player trainers to battle, either solo or as a team regardless of which team you're on. However, I'm willing, and would prefer, to wait for Niantic to fix the bugs(i.e. that issue they caused that broke the Pokemon tracking system) and server issues with the game before they add in a whole bunch of new content.
I've read a RUMOR that the 3 legendary birds will first become available only to each ones respective team. There's nothing official to back the claim, but I think it would be totally amazing if the rumor turned out to be true.
