As we can realize that affiliating Google account with Pokemon is separate to trainer’s club account. So it could be more secure to have a Google account signed in one window and a trainer’s club account on separate window instead of having two Google accounts or two trainer’s club accounts simultaneously.

Therefore playing Pokemon with multiple accounts in team mode or in competition can have more chance to hurt your account. But again you should not use multiple accounts to cheat as the chances of losing account are rare when you use it for solving a multi user problem.
