Which would be better to use?

If I ever change from android to Iphone will a pokemon trainer club account let me keep my progress?

I have both, but I decided to use my Pokemon Trainer Club account. Not sure if that's better or worse.

I was using Trainer Club account but now it says Unable to authenticate.

Google account can be used. Does anybody have the same issue?

Finally, someone with the same issue as me, at first i thought there was some issue with my game, but when i tried to actually go to the Pokemon website and log into my Trainer Club account, I get a 503 error, so I actually think nintendo is having an issue on their side of things. I would suggest trying to log into your Trainer account just to verify. I really want to play but I don't want to make a new character with my google account, I've already caught some good pokemon and taken over 3 gyms :<

I'm also getting the error trying to log in with my Pokemon Trainer Club account. I went on the pokemon trainer club website and tried logging in there too and it looks like the servers are down.

I can't log on the Trainer Club website either.
It seems we will have to wait.

I made an account with Google but I mistakenly used a lame nickname (tought I was naming my Squirtle)

Is there a way to reset my Pokemon Go Google account?

Trainer Club seems to be down, but it is apparently the better option. You supposedly get codes for pokemon every now and then and some bonus stuff. That's just what I've read, however. Look up Pokemon Go Tips.

Can anyone help me?

I want to sign in with my trainer club account but there is actually no option on the opening menu for me to do it? There is only a google account option.
