While out looking around, remember to keep an eye on your surroundings. Do not try and catch Pokemon behind the wheel, don’t look at your phone at all while driving... period. Respect others while walking. Sure, you may receive a few stares because you’re staring intently at your phone, but that doesn’t excuse you walking into them, or harassing them.
Other people may be playing the game, too, so you may make a few new friends while checking out some of these locations. Or maybe even some "frenemies" due to being on rival teams. Teams are divided into three colors, Yellow, Blue, and Red. Team Yellow is Team Instinct. Blue is Team Mystic. Red is Team Valor. There are no benefits to each team, it just depends on your favorite color or the in-game “morals” explained upon reaching level 5.
Each team can manage a gym, or even take over a gym from rival teams. However multiple members of a team can put Pokemon into a gym and host it, making it harder for enemies to defeat the gym.
