Can I join a team if I do not visit a city?

I live out in the country, and cannot travel easily. Is there any way I can achieve things like selecting a team?

Other questions cover finding Pokemon and suggest driving to town to find gyms and stops. I can find Pokemon out here using incense; I can afford a few coins to replenish pokeballs, incense, and lucky eggs. I don’t want to drive to town. I want to select a team without leaving my home property.


Based on this and this, you actually do need to go to a Pokemon Gym in order to join a team.

As for gyms, they only allow you to get Pokécoins without paying for them. Theoretically, you could play without encountering gyms (or Pokéstops) but you will most likely end up having to pay for pokéballs to catch things and lucky eggs if you want to level up as fast as possible. Unfortunately, Pokémon Go was developed with urbanites and city dwellers in mind. Playing out in the country just won’t be as good of an experience as it stands currently.
