Is there a petition for making Pokemon Go delete teams all together??? Im super sick of the rudeness and unhealthy competetion between the teams -.-
I keep seeing nasty posts, images of vandalism, rude memes made to bash people who simply picked a different color. I am a team mystic and the only reason why i chose mystic is because I love articuno. THATS IT.
If you chose the yellow or red NO ONE CARES??
If there's not a petition someone needs to make one or I will -.-

(only chose team mystic cause it's blue and articuno is pretty as fuck)


but I love the team system, there will be people who take it out of hand but honestly I love the "capture the fort" concept
I think my bf is gonna end up choosing valor and if that happens and I'll write a really bad and cheesy Romeo and Juliet type story about it xD


Just don't let the little things bother you, I've honestly haven't seen a lot of hate, just friendly rivalry and memes

:000000 friendo mystic! -icey huggles!- articuno is baeeeee <3

Im not really that competitive of a person so i'm probably not as hyped as others about teams. Im more of a solo or rarely a duo type of person (considering how i run my species lol)
I guess i just didnt take into consideration that others may like the teams despite the hate ^^'

Still im dead set on just doing away with teams simply because they arent really that special to me personally. I'm more insterested in seeing who's at the top with their pokemon right now then the top team :/

Yeaaa it could just me getting salty~ but ive seen some serious bs between valor and mystic including personal/public property destruction and vandalism plus egging, and other stupid crap
It just spoils the game for me personally. It doesnt seem 'healthy' to me at this point with team competitions.

I personally like the teams :'0
I feel that the spirit of pokemon is friendly competition 
After all, you're battling to be the very best haha
I'm sure the teams were meant to just bring team spirit, not to spite the other teams
Saying that you're valor, instinct, or mystic is just a way to show your pride and I don't think there's anything wrong with that personally
Some people do tend to take it very far and I'm not saying it's okay but I mean

I know a lot of people who are fond of the teams because it's nothing but friendly rivalry
I don't think it's right to punish all the people who do like the teams and are respectful about it just because of some harsh memes and some words said by an unknown face behind a screen :<

But that's just my opinion haha

Well~ i see what you mean
But when it comes to effect things in the real world like egging people who are supposed team 'whatever', vandalizing public and even personal property and ect i feel some action needs to be taken v-v

Sometimes others unfortunately have to suffer for other's idiocies. Its the way of life unfortunately :/

That's true but it doesn't necessarily have to be that way :'0
Rather than having it all come to a stop, wouldn't it just be a better idea to "purify" the fandom?
Rather than causing more problems and negativity by wanting to trash the idea of teams altogether, you can contribute by just
not being one of those people that take it too far :'D

A lot of people around the WORLD love this game and just because a few mildly violent pranks and personal rivalries and feuds occur, that doesn't necessarily mean that a petition must happen
I understand people can be disrespectful, but before AND after pokemon go, people have always been disrespectful 
That's just how people are and you can't get rid of it by altering a game sadly

I feel it's best just to leave it be because even if you manage taking out the teams, you can't take out malicious people who believe deeply in hardcore competition : <

As much as thats a cool idea i feel like its a bit ((god i sound like my school where everything points to this)) like a gang. Like thats a really dramatic statement i know but with how its going i wont be surprised at all
People have made gangs and fought over stupider things than a game

That's true, but that's just human nature, ya know? No amount of rules or petitions are going to remove our naturally combative/competitive instincts. I mean like you said, people take sides and fight over suuuper trivial things. That's never going to change. And tbh placing rules against it kind of stokes the flames. People immediately do what they're told not to. I certainly do, within reason. :'D

I think competition and rivalry is healthy and fun. There will be people who take it to the extreme, but you can't prevent it from happening. Why ruin the fun for the majority of people who are respectful with their team spirit? And besides, people would probably form teams regardless if they were official anyhow :shrug:

Honestly yeah it's a lil outta control. But making a petition is kinda silly, because even if you do I doubt nintendo will listen or even really look at it
It's best to just not participate if you aren't a fan of the behavior

I of course dont participate in the behavior but i also dont want to stand by and let it happen if i can help it
Wether it be a petition or simply spreading word that its not okay to do that
Sure nintendo may not change it but giving up isnt really a good way to get things to change :/
At least making the petition will give us a chance. No petition gaurntees no chance.
I have faith nintendo will at least adress the issue like they did with driving and the game.

Well, they may address the issue but I really doubt they'll remove teams entirely
And just because they address the issue doesn't mean people will listen.
Even if they removed the teams people would continue to use and be a part of them because nintendo's already "planted the seed" for the idea.

Yes thats unfortunate that adressing the issue may not help
But removing the teams will help. If its a 'one for all' type of game then its people fighting for the top of the gym. People wouldnt know who was on what team unless stated.
And if teams dont get in game credit it may defuse or at least dilute the problem

My point is, doing nothing doesnt get anything done.

Well, the fact of gyms being there is still a problem in itself. People will fight over gyms. Vandalize places to get back at other for taking the gym, etc..
If the problem you want to eliminate is gonna be eliminated, they might as well just get rid of the game. The whole point is to be competitive, and with that comes things like this.
So what I'm saying is petitioning it is really pointless because people will always find something to fight over, whether it's one-for-all or teams.
