Who is The Team Mystic Leader?

Team Mystic’s leader is a petite but strong blonde named Blanche. Players had no idea what the Team Leader of Mystic looked like until an image of her was finally released at this year’s Comic-Con. Already arguably the favorite team amongst Pokemon GO players, Team Mystic drew an even larger crowd of fans after the Team Leader’s image was released.

Which Pokemon is Team Mystic’s Mascot?

Team Mystic Articuno

Team Mystic’s official mascot is number 144 in the Pokedex. For those of you who have lost track of the Pokemon’s numbers, that’s the legendary Articuno.

Articuno is a Flying and Ice type, an incredibly potent combination in a Pokemon battle. Although not yet available in-game for Pokemon GO, there is a long-term plan to introduce him via an event or special promotion; most likely team based.

The enormous Freeze Pokemon weighs in at just over 122 pounds and is just over 5’7 in height. In addition to being fairly majestic and graceful, Articuno has the awesome ability to freeze any moisture in the air, causing a blizzard that freezes its’ opponents.

Why Are Team Mystic the Most Popular?

There are a broad variety of factors that contribute to Team Mystics popularity, but the reason that they are more popular than the other teams; Valor and Instinct; is really anyone’s guess. One of the theories is that their existing fan base’s dedication to contributing art, stories, and cross-over media (mainly Game of Thrones) has drawn a large crowd.

Other theories range from being as simple as people liking the color blue or the Pokemon Articuno ; to more complex theories such as the Team Leader being a representative of wisdom and level-headedness.
