Pokémon Go is now a fully fledged phenomenon, and whether you’re on team red, blue or yellow can make or break any friendship. Developer Niantic discussed the game at Comic-Con 2016 and showed the leaders for the game’s three competing teams.
During the panel, an image of the three new characters was shown. Team Mystic (best team) has Blanche, Team Valor (rubbish team) is led by Candela, and Team Instinct (who would choose this team??) is headed-up by Spark.
This is the first time that we’ve seen the characters, who until now have been represented merely by silhouettes in the game.
HERE THEY ARE IN ALL THEIR GLORY:
Comparing the ensembles, it’s pretty clear that Blanche is the best, but Candela is kinda cool too. The general consensus on the interwebs is that Spark looks like a poorly dressed dude-bro.
Twitter users are cutting sick at Spark and his sad existence.
I can tell Spark tries so hard, to be hip and happenin, to be the very best but at the bottom of the stairs misses the last step and eats it

Candela: Fire Queen
Blanche: Ice Conqueror
Spark: Meme Lord

Squints at Spark

Spark really needs to get his life together.
Candela goes to nice restaurants, Blanche cooks using only organic ingredients, Spark eats an entire bag of chips and calls it dinner

candela: is there a word that's a mix between angry and sad?
blanche: malcontented, disgruntled, miserable, desolated

Candela: I will show you Pokemon's true heart through strength!
Blanche: Knowledge is the key to victory
Spark:*wheels past on heelies*

Harsh but fair.
candela: we lost spark the other day
spark: quit telling everyone i'm dead
blanche: sometimes we can still hear his voice
