You might have chosen a team in Pokemon Go by now, and there is every possibility that you would want to change it in the future. Many players chose teams before speaking to friends and family members, which may have resulted in them being on different teams.
However, the game doesn’t allow you to change your team once you pick it after reaching level 5. There might be a few cheats to make the swap, but all of them would result in losing your current game’s progress and stats.
Thankfully, there seems to be a workaround to this as several users and Redditors have reported about successfully contacting Niantic in order to change their team. Be warned, though, that Niantic will only accept your request for changing teams once and you can’t keep changing them as you like.
This adjustment is to aid players that chose a team by mistake. Another thing to note is that they will only accept your request if you’re low level and have not spent a lot of time with your chosen team.
To change teams, all you have to do is click this link. After clicking the link you will be redirected to the official website of Niantic, where you’ll be given an option to change your team for another one of your choice via a support form. You’ll just need to provide some minimal details like your e-mail address, nickname, and OS version to complete this process.
Make sure to describe why you want to change your team in the ‘additional request tab,’ and if you’ve followed the steps above, you might be able to choose a new team, even after initially picking a different one. This process is tedious but worth the effort if you feel you’ve joined the wrong team. This might take a bit of time since many people are submitting requests. Let us know if you were able to successfully change your team using this method.
