- Pokémon Go: what is the Team Medallion and how to get it
When a player starts playing Pokémon Go, they are asked to choose their side among three teams: Bravery (red), Wisdom (blue), and Intuition (yellow). Each of these teams has as a mascot one of the three legendary birds of the first generation: Sulfura, Artikodin and Elekthor.
The choice must be made at the start of the game and, until now it was impossible to change your mind afterwards. However, many reasons can lead a player to want to change teams later. For example, it is possible to want to join a friend who is part of another team, or to want to be part of the best team in his city.
In fact, since the launch of Pokémon Go, players have been asking for the ability to change faction. Three years after the game's release, Niantic is finally responding positively to this community request. Here is how to change team during the game.
Pokémon Go: what is the Team Medallion and how to get it
From February 26, 2019, it will be possible to change teams in Pokémon Go using a new item called "Team Medallion". To get this item, you'll have to… pay.
Indeed, it will be possible to'' buy in the shop for the sum of 1000 Poképièces. To raise these funds, you can capture and keep arenas for as long as possible. If you don't have the patience or the talent to do so, it's possible to buy 1200 Poképoins for 10 euros through an in-app purchase.
However, let us clarify that it will only be possible to use the Team Medallion once a year. Obviously, this limit was set to prevent players from changing teams too frequently. Without this limit, there would be a risk that all players would join the best performing team and completely abandon the other two.
