TEAM INSTINCT

TEAM INSTINCT

Full disclosure, I’m a member of Team Instinct. But I’m not interested in the “My Team Is Better Than Yours” message (except the obligatory “         Team is Best Team” for whatever team you’re on as a show of support and said in good fun). Neither do I support the unwarranted smearing of other teams.

Team Instinct, regardless, remains an underdog, having the lowest membership of the three teams, and very much is unfairly painted as an imbecile by the other teams. Why? Because other than his image, his self introduction and appraisals, we don’t have anything else to base his actual character on. Just like the other teams, there isn’t that much to go on.

twitter-pokemongo-teaminstinctspark-cosplayThe more I see the images that cast Team Leader Spark in a more positive light that reflects what we do know, the more I’ve come to see him as a character that is caring and sensitive about how Pokemon are brought into this world and raised; is accepting of emotions; has an innocent disposition; and is a goofy, caring friend of the other two team leaders. Which makes him a great male role model that contrasts against the common Macho stereotype that men are usually shown as.

In other words I see him as a #PokemonDaddy and started this hashtag #SparkParentalInstinct with those associated images to change the negative perception and show a more positive upbeat view of Team Leader Spark and the game.

As for Team Instinct members, those I’ve come across in person and online tend to show a similar disposition. Not to mention that there seems to be a lot of Team Instinct members who like to artistically express themselves, contributing to Team Leader Spark also being referred to as Meme Lord. Its a team that apparently enjoys a good laugh and comradery. Even if the jokes are at our own expense. Its about having fun, analyzing and being conscious of our Pokemon’s innate characteristics – aka their instincts.

So here is a collection of my favorite Team Instinct Memes & Comics on the internet + some awesome general Pokemon Go images. At the end is a bit of commentary and references to inspire future art.

Considering Spark’s direction of study, I am surprised at the lack of depicting Spark’s work environment as a ranch, farm, or nature reserve. Though, considering his clothing, I can see how that direction could be missed. I guess all the depictions of him hiking with and caring for Pokemon eggs in adorable fashion makes up for that. Still, I’m seriously considering adding a slew of my own depictions of that work environment – being a naturalist who grew up on a farm, and so was drawn to this team for that very reason. Which makes me wonder…

How the heck isn’t there any Owen Grady (Jurassic World, Raptor Squad Leader) / Team Leader Spark mashups? That is definitely a way for Spark’s leather garments to have some additional practicality to the obvious electrical insulation bit (also why I suspect his hoodie is wool to insulate against the resulting heat). Both even share a similar disposition (He tends to be highly empathetic with the wildlife of Jurassic World, sees his raptor pack as his family instead of just trained animals and knows how to handle them carefully. He comes off as very down to Earth and was openly confused as to why a genetically-engineered hybrid would be necessary to attract attention more than the existing dinosaurs in the park.), has a similar job (a dinosaur researcher employed by Jurassic World, hired by the InGen Security Division to train and research the behaviors of Velociraptor.), and outlook:

“I don’t control the Raptors, it’s a relationship. Based on mutual respect.”—Owen describing his relationship to the Raptors

And besides, just look at the fan images that are already incredibly similar…

With this following one I can totally picture Spark doing with Jolteons

I also have a headcanon that Spark has/makes field guides of Pokemon like this.

In addition, we could have Spark join in this meetup,

Hope you enjoyed this compilation of Team Instinct Fun, and perhaps even inspired some to join the game and even the team 😉
