Make sure everyone knows what team you’re on!

Once you reach level five in Pokémon Go you’re faced with a decision. Do you join Team Instinct, Team Valor, or Team Mystic?

These teams have different leaders, colors, and symbols, and they represent different philosophies. Team Valor, led by Candela, is the red team. It’s known for strength and passion, and is home to some fierce competitors. Team Mystic, led by Blanche, is the blue team, known for its wisdom and poise. These players make for clever opponents. Finally Team Instinct, led by Spark, is (as you might expect) guided by intuition. If you like to follow your gut, this is the team for you.  

It’s hard not to get attached to your team considering you’ll be defending gyms and defeating trainers in its name. If you’re all about Pokémon Go team spirit and want everyone around you to know it, there are already a number of ways you can show your team pride in the real world.

Here are nine items that can help you bring your team membership from the screen to everyday life.

1) Tank tops

2) Pokédex-style phone case
