Niantic, the company behind Pokémon Go, revealed the team leaders for Team Mystic, Team Valor and Team Instinct over the weekend — and in true internet fashion, fans spotted an irregularity and struck. The outlier is Team Instinct's leader, Spark.
The designs for Pokémon Go's team leaders of Valor, Mystic and Instinct are Candela, Blanche and Spark, respectively. And according to meme machines and the Twittersverse, Spark isn't as tough as the blue and red team leaders. The internet is split — some are roasting Spark for his delicate demeanor, and others calling him a babe. Awww.
There's more new Pokémon news, too. Niantic CEO John Hanke also revealed at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend that new Pokémon, a trading feature and customizable PokéStops may be coming to the game in the future.
