Welcome in the shaper influence to further the evolution of mankind. The Enlightened firmly believe the shapers are a force for the good that will help mankind move beyond their primitive beginnings. They fight against the Resistance who they see as too afraid to let real progress in
Founded by Roland Jarvis, a sculptor and former member of the Niantic Project. Jarvis was part of the team that created a hacked version the scanner to make neutral XM (white color) turn into enlightend XM (green color).
All Portals, Links, and Control Field Δ that are under Enlightened control will appear with glowing green XM in the Scanner. Upgrading portals, regardless of who owns it, benefits the entire team and makes the opposing faction use up more gear. Keep your resonators recharged, don't forget to get at least one key before leaving a portal location.
