More than two years after the game was launched, Pokemon Go will finally allow players to change their teams. Niantic has announced a new item called Team Medallion, which will be put on sale in the store from February 26, and allow users to switch their loyalty to another team once.
Team Medallion costs 1,000 PokeCoins, making it quite expensive as a bundle of 1,200 coins runs for $ 10 USD. There are some warnings about how it works too. You can only buy a Team Medallion every 365 days, so when you change teams you will be locked to your choice for the next year.
Shortly after players first start Pokemon Go, they are asked to participate in one of three teams: Mystic, Instinct and Valor, represented by the legendary birds Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres respectively. So far, your choice has been permanent, so if you have had itching to change pages, this is your first opportunity to do so.
Team Medallion is not the only new feature that Niantic introduces into Pokemon Go; The developer has also rolled out the recently announced Go Snapshot AR photo mode. This allows players to take pictures of any Pokemon they have in stock and easily share them with friends and on social media.
This weekend is a bustle for Pokemon Go players. From February 22-25, Niantic brings the Gen 3 Legendary Pokemon Latias back to a special Raid Weekend. In addition, a new Limited Research event is scheduled to take place this Saturday, February 23, and it will give players their first chance to capture the never-before-available Water Pokemon Clamperl.
