Change Teams in Pokemon GO

Pokemon GO is a highly addicting game that has captured the imagination of Pokemon fans all over the world. Everywhere you can see mobile gamers with their smartphones out trying to ?catch ?em all!?. Once a player reaches level 5, he or she would need to choose among the three teams available: Team Instinct, Team Valor and Team Mystic. The game warns players that once they choose a team they can no longer change it. Thankfully, it appears that there is a way to quickly change teams in Pokemon GO.

While catching every Pokemon is certainly one of the main goals of the game, Niantic Labs has added a team element to the augmented reality game. Having the three different teams has certainly made the game more interesting and surely the game developers have something in store for the game later on.

If you have chosen a team though and you would want to switch to another one, you do not have to worry as there is a way that you can do so. While the game will tell you that switching teams is not allowed, several users on Reddit have already found a way around it.

You can do this by contacting Niantic Labs in order to request them to change your team in Pokemon GO. This is allowed by Niantic presumably to help those users who have chosen a team completely by accident.

You would just have to visit this link which will redirect you to the official Niantic Labs website. There you will have to fill up a support form and it is in the ?additional request tab? where you should indicate that you would want to change your team.

It is worth noting that they will only consider your request once and only if the level of your trainer is still low. With that, make sure that you decide whether you are in the right team as soon as possible to avoid any issues later on.

This process may be a bit tedious but it is certainly your best shot to easily change teams in Pokemon GO without losing your level. Give it a try and finally join the team that you want without any problems. Be sure to check back here soon to find more Pokemon GO tips as well as other trending topics in the world of gaming.
