New Team Medallion allows Trainers to switch teams!

Trainers, Taking down Gyms and battling in raids have been a team effort over the last two years. Whether you’re on #TeamInstinct, #TeamMystic, or #TeamValor, you came together with your teammates and helped one another be better Trainers. We’ve loved watching you share your team pride and band together with others to take on new challenges. Are you ready to take your talents to a new team? The team leaders would be excited to recruit you!

We’re happy to share Team Change with you. Later this month, starting at 1:00 p.m. PST on February 26, Team Change will allow Trainers to change teams once per year. Interested Trainers will be able to purchase a Team Medallion for 1,000 PokéCoins from the shop.

Choose your team wisely, Trainers, as you may only purchase a Team Medallion once every 365 days. Once purchased, you can find the Team Medallion in your Bag. When you decide to activate it, you’ll be guided through the team-selection screens to choose your new team.

Any of your Pokémon that are in Gyms when you change teams will be returned with no PokéCoins earned once it’s defeated. You also can’t battle your own Pokémon, so if you return to a Gym one of your Pokémon is defending, your Pokémon will be returned to you with no PokéCoins earned. (You’ll be able to find more information on our Help Center page.)

We can’t wait to see the new Gyms you win with your friends and Pokémon! There’s just one question: Will you be hatching Eggs with Spark, conducting research with Blanche, or battling alongside Candela? Let’s team up and GO!

Niantic has announced a new feature for Pokémon Go called GO Snapshot which allows players to take a photo of any Pokémon they have in their Pokémon Storage.

Snap off the lens cap on your inner photographer!

Trainers, We’ve been inspired by the photos you’ve taken with our AR+ feature. From the smallest Wurmple to the tallest Alolan Exeggutor, Trainers have taken amazing photos that show off Pokémon in their natural habitats. Today, we’re happy to announce that a brand-new feature will arrive soon—one that’s sure to make capturing the charms of your favorite Pokémon easier than ever!

Introducing GO Snapshot—an easy way to take a photo of any Pokémon you have in your Pokémon Storage! You can find the feature when looking at a specific Pokémon or accessing the camera in your Bag of items.

It’s simple to use. Select a Pokémon and tap on the screen to throw its Poké Ball to that spot. Once your Pokémon is situated in the ideal spot, you can then move around it to find the best angle for your photo. Is your Pokémon distracted or looking the wrong way? Brush across it to get its attention, and it will be sure to face you.

Take as many photos as you like during your session. Once you’re finished, all photos are saved to your device automatically! It’s also easier than ever to share your favorite photo via social media. Just select the linked social channel you want to share with, and you can show your friends your masterpiece with a couple of quick taps.

We can’t wait to see the amazing photos you’ll take of your Pokémon! Don’t forget to send us your works of art with #GOsnapshot, so we can show them off, too! Let’s grab our cameras and GO!
