'I wanna theme the very best, like no one ever was…'

It's likely you care more about catching that Dratini the next street over than giving your home screen some team pride, but that's OK! I have scoured the internet to come up with wonderful themes for each of the teams in Pokémon Go, so that you can show your pride each time you unlock your phone to check if your gym is still standing.

Note: While these music widgets are already configured for your convenience, if you like them you should really consider downloading Material Music Komponent, the component on which they're based. It's free, and it's awesome.
