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.[1] He likes to tease Blanche to get her flustered.[2]



"Hey! The name's Spark — the leader of Team Instinct. Pokemon are creatures with excellent intuition. I bet the secret to their intuition is related to how they're hatched. Come and join my team! You never lose when you trust your instincts!"
Team GO Rocket invasion introduction (before battle)
"I overheard that some shady characters have been showing up at PokéStops. I think you need to check it out, but be careful, I have a feeling you might end up in a battle!"

"Grass-type Pokémon are weak to Fire-, Ice-, Poison-, Flying-, and Bug-type attacks."

"Whoa, looks like they couldn't handle a little battle! They even left behind their Pokémon. Why would they do that? I has a really odd aura arount it... Let's help it! Can you catch it so we can take a closer look?"'
Team GO Rocket invasion introduction (after capture)
"Oh! I remember Professor Willow talking about a process called purification! He said that it could help certain Pokémon become more powerful. Let's git it a shot!"
