Pokémon Go is more than just a friendly game of catching your favorite fictional creatures in the real world. It has an extremely competitive side that continues to sweep the world off its feet and that involves joining seemingly arbitrary teams.
Once you are strong enough and reach Level 5 in the game, you go to battle a gym and find out that you must join 1 of 3 possible teams. But there’s an important catch: You cannot change your team once you pick one. It is set in virtual stone.
Let’s be honest, we love setting ourselves up into separate teams or factions (i.e. Hogwarts Houses, Hunger Games factions, kids’ table vs adult table at Thanksgiving dinner, etc.) so this decision is extremely important for all of us.
