Coaches, stick to your seats, Pokémon GO Team Change is coming! A new element called Team Change Medallion has been announced, confirming what the latest leaks revealed. It finally happens!
Team Change Medallion will be available February 26, 2019 at. 13.00 PDT, which can be purchased from the store in games for 1000 PokéCoins. As previously leaked, Team Medallion will be used once a year with a cooling off of 365 days.
The official message text says the following:
"Interested teachers will be able to buy a Team Medallion for 1,000 PokéCoins from the store. Choose your team wisely, Trainers as you only have to buy a Team Medallion once every 365 days. "
Team Change Medallion: Our Take
We believe in GO Hub that this topic is a long time ago, but the implementation of it is honestly fantastic! With a cooling-off period of 365 days, the item must not cause constant team-balance changes, but it still allows players who want to make a change to a new team to do so without penalty (experience or loss of level). I've always been Team Mystic, but I suddenly have this electric feeling and could bolt over to Instinct just for kicks!
The price is also quite right as 1000 PokéCoins is not too steep, but neither on the cheap side – we feared that the price could be 2000 coins or more, which would put it out of the price range for the vast majority of free-to-air players.
Actually, the implementation of this feature is so good that we hope that a similar object will be available in Wizards Unite from day one. There is simply no need to get stuck with a team selection, you make super early in a game's progression system.
