Pokemon GO: Meet Candela, Blanche, and Spark, your team leaders

During Niantic’s Pokemon GO panel, a lot of details regarding what the wildly popular game had to offer, were discussed. Not only that, but the leaders for the three teams (Instinct, Mystic and Valor) were shown.

The Pokemon GO panel featured the CEO of Niantic, John Hanke who decided to finally show us the true identities of Blanche, Candela and Spark. Hanke also discussed plenty of other features which he though about bringing to Pokemon GO, so make note that these are just being considered, not confirmed. However, fan feedback could change that entirely.


For starters, Hanke says the game is only 10% of what they want to be, and that the game can only be further improved once the servers have stabilised. Hanke also says that Niantic was thinking about bringing Pokemon Centers to the game. Remember, these are not confirmed.

Niantic is also planning to bring trading to Pokemon GO, but John stresses, again, that the servers need to be fully functional before bringing about any major updates. They also mentioned Easter eggs, which no one has found as yet.

Niantic wants to release Pokemon GO in all its planned regions before making any major moves with legendary Pokemon, so the players will have to wait. They also confirmed that they are aware of the ‘three-step’ glitch.

So Pokemon GO players, what do you think of your team leaders? I picked Mystic, and I’m very happy with the way Blanche’s character was designed. What about you? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
