What is a player team?

A player team is a sub-community player-run feature, often made with the original Pokémon teams as their logo and name, however, it is also an option to create your very own team from scratch, as long as it stays within the server and team guidelines. In a team, you’ll get access to team chats, ally chats, bank functions and much more. The different teams will likely have their very own Discord and an application form you can ask for so you can apply.

Why Join a Team?

Play with your friends -- Make new friends -- C O M M U N I T Y

Reasons to join teams can be many and varied.  Some seek a more closed-knitted community, others just want to start or be in a team with their friends. There are a bunch of different teams on PokéMC and they all offer a mixed variety of events, functions and communities. It is very common for a team to make a base, and help each other out with team or individual projects or just go hunting for Pokémon together. The possibilities are almost limitless, as long as you stay within the rules of the server and of the team you would join.

How do I join a team?
