Pokemon GO Fans Seek To End Cross-Faction Hostility Via Team Harmony

A lovely bit of design work from DeviantArt's Seoxys6 is quickly becoming the banner of Pokemon GO fans already tired of the senseless hostility brewing between teams Mystic, Instinct and Asking For It. Can't we all just get along? No. But it's a wonderful dream, this Team Harmony. Seoxys6's depiction of a fourth, all-encompassing Pokemon GO team was accompanied by the following inspirational passage, possibly from the Bible or an ancient prophecy from Pokemon the Movie 2000: The Power of One.

Disturb not the harmony of Fire, Ice, or Lightning lest these three Titans wreck destruction upon the world in which they clash. Though the water's Great Guardian shall arise to quell the fighting alone its song will fail. Thus the Earth shall turn to ash. O, Chosen One, into thine hands bring together all three.

In the movie, Ash and his friends have to do something-something with Lugia in order to restore order to the other three legendary birds, Pokemon GO team mascots Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres. It makes sense then, that Lugia would be the mascot of a fourth Pokemon GO team, uniting the tribes and bringing balance with its song.

Portions of the prophecy are also used in the song "The Chosen One" from the B-52s, featured on the film's soundtrack. As rallying cries go I suppose it's on a level above "Love Shack" but doesn't hold a candle to "Rock Lobster".

Whatever the inspiration, Team Harmony is really taking off on Twitter and Facebook, generally popping up to ruin things whenever a perfectly good battle between Team Mystic and Valor breaks out.

Can Team Harmony, now available on T-shirts and other merchandise, put an end to the eternal conflict that's been going on as long this week as we can remember? History tells us that humanity was once made up of roving tribes, waging war over territory, until one day a magic bird arrived and everything was OK forever. So yeah, probably.

    Is Ho-Oh the mascot of team chaos?

      I could get on board with a Team Anarchy, tear down the coloured gyms, take what you want from a lure without ever lure-ing back.

      Yeah where is Ho-Oh is all this?!

        Ho-Oh is the guardian of the legendary beast trio Entei, Raikou and Suicune. Even though Ho-Oh is lugia other half the two of them have never interacted
