I started the game last July playing with my son. Actually had to upgrade my phone to be able to play the game. He got me interested in it and I kind of took over. He started playing the regular Pokemon games on his 3DS, so it wasn't a big deal that I took over PGO on my own phone. Before I took over from him, he chose Team Mystic. Guess it's because blue is his favorite color. I would have picked the red team. I have stuck with blue team and battle the red team all the time. Looking forward to the Gym rework and I'm saving my potions for it.
