Team Instinct is often shown to specialize in electric-type pokémon, as evident by their leader Spark who is an electric-type trainer.

Rivalry with Valor and Mystic
Team Instinct isn't the only available team the player can choose. The player can also choose Team Mystic and Team Valor. These three teams works as the players allies in battle. For when the player chooses a team, the player is taking gyms for that team. Instinct is in an endless battle with Mystic and Valor about gym control. Even though the three teams are enemies, they all still unite to take down the evil Team GO Rocket. Team Instinct is and has always been the least popular team out of all three. They get a bad reputation for being so unpopular and that they never control gyms.
