Hello Trainers! We have yet another announcement for you today- More clothes! These clothes show off some ‘team pride’ and new clothing items are unlocked the farther along you are in getting your gold Gym Leader Badge, which is a badge received for defending gyms! You reach the gold badge as soon as you have defended for more than 1000 hours.

Here is the news announcement from the app:

So, let’s jump in to these new clothing items.

Female Clothing Items Price in Coins Required Gym Leader Medal
Gym Leader Top (yellow, blue, or red) 220 Gold Medal
Gym Leader Shoes  (yellow, blue, or red) 100 Silver Medal
Gym Leader Skirt (yellow, blue or red) 200 Silver Medal
Gym Leader Gloves 50 Bronze Medal
Total 570

 

Male Clothing Items Price in Coins Required Gym Leader Medal
Gym Leader Top (yellow, blue, or red) 220 Gold Medal
Gym Leader Shoes  (yellow, blue, or red) 100 Silver Medal
Gym Leader Shorts (yellow, blue or red) 200 Silver Medal
Gym Leader Gloves 50 Bronze Medal
Total 570

 

This is the first time Pokémon Go has added clothing items based on the tiers of your medal, rather than just unlocking entire outfits at gold (of course saving the cool top for last). With the way things are going, we may be able to expect more purchasable clothing in the future, although some could argue these clothing items should be a free reward for getting your gold badge.

Another interesting feature is that the color you buy is not limited to your team. You can even purchase a team vest for any of the three teams, even though they feature the team logos alongside their color!

May we also be able to expect clothing from quests in the future as well? The future is full of possibilities!

For this round of clothing items, the top seems to be the best item to spend your coins on, the other clothes could be passed over unless you wanted to go full team spirit! Will you buy any of these clothing items, and show off those bold team colors?
