|Member of||Team Instinct|
Spark (Japanese: スパーク Spark) is the leader of Team Instinct (Japanese: チームインスティンクト Team Instinct) in Pokémon GO. Team Instinct is researching Pokémon breeding, and is represented by Zapdos. Team Instinct Trainers believe a Pokémon's intuition is linked to how they are hatched.
He is one of Professor Willow's assistants, along with Blanche and Candela. Standing at over 6 feet tall, Spark is the tallest of the three team leaders. He likes to tease Blanche to get her flustered.
