More than two years after the game was launched, Pokemon Go will finally give players the option to change their teams. Niantic has announced a new item named Team Medallion, which will go on sale in the in-game shop beginning February 26 and allow users to switch their allegiance to another team one time
The Team Medallion will cost 1,000 PokeCoins, which makes it fairly pricey, as a bundle of 1,200 coins runs for $ 10 USD. There are a few caveats as to how it works as well. You can only purchase one Team Medallion every 365 days, so you switch teams, you will be locked into your choice for the next year.
Shortly after players first begin Pokemon Go, they're Asked to join one of three teams: Mystic, Instinct, and Valor, which are represented by the Legendary birds Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres, respectively. Up to now, however, your choice has been permanent, so if you have been moving it to switch sides, this will be your first opportunity to do so
The Team Medallion is not the only new feature. Pokemon Go; the developer has also rolled out the recently announced Go Snapshot AR photo mode. This allows players to take photos of any Pokemon they have in storage and easily share them with friends and on social media
