Follow the leader

When you reach level 5 in Pokémon GO you've given the opportunity to select which of the three teams you'd like to pledge your allegiance to: Valor, Mystic or Instinct.

This choice has serious consequences as it determines whether or not you have to fight for local gyms or add your strength to them if they're already in the hands of your team. Each team has a leader, but up until now these were little more than vague silhouettes.

We know now a little more about this trio as their names and faces have been revealed during the San Diego Comic-Con. Niantic CEO John Hanke showed off the artwork, and claimed that these characters will play a larger role in the game in the future.

What do you think of these characters so far? Let us know with a comment.
