If you think the world should be a better place for everyone put this in you sig. (started by Mewmie the shiny Mew)
But how would they time travel? I don't think Dialga or Celebi would want to lend them a hand.
Enter the world of imagination:
1- Three Zoroarks.
2- Time travel.
3- Dopplegangers working for Team Plasma.
EDIT: I'm talking about having this scene in the manga, which is what this thread is about.
In my opinion, if the San'you trio is not the Dark Trinity, then they at least have some kind of connection. Possibly clones or something.

And well, everyone is complaining for the Shadow Triad being three identical members but look, if they are triplets too, makes sense. We only can distinct the Subway masters from their differently colored outfit or else.
EDIT: To avoid furher confusion, I meant that if they want to include this scene in the manga and use this adapted villainy, these are ways to explain how the scene could be possible.

Wow, in the games the myth is busted, but in PokéSpe, I totally see this happening. And I kinda want it to happen too, we haven't seen evil Gym Leaders in a long time. It would be a nice plot twist.

Contact me here or in those sites to keep me motivated for this fic. Several chapters are already concluded, but there's still a LONG way to go. I want to be sure I'll finish this thing before I start publishing it.
As for the main thread, I doubt that is true for the reasons stated above. And the Straiton trio are as innocent as one (or three) can get. If the Shadow Triad ABSOLUTELY had to be someone we knew of, I would say they would be people who were originally lost in their paths and then saw Ghetsis as their destinies after he saved them. Maybe, Maxie, Archie, and either Mars or Jupiter? (but the former two would be impossible in the manga so disregard that)
However, it's just the manga as you see. This manga has the habit to give different backgrounds and roles to certain characters, even changing drastically their design in some cases. See this Shadow Triad has nothing with their game counterparts.
Correct me if I'm wrong but so far they seems to lack the ninja-skills. They are just 3 plain masked man using technology to spy instal doing that themselves like their counterparts. As their design are completely different as well.
In any case, just because something is not canon for the games doesn't mean it's not on track to work for Special. The example with Pryce was a good one -- he's the exact opposite of a villain in the games, and has no such traumatic past or dubious intentions. But keep in mind that different adaptations beget different continuities. Obviously the Striaton triplets aren't slated to be the Shadow Triad in the anime either (I... think...), but Special makes it a very real possibility. This happens all over the place, because Pokemon just has so many flexible ways of telling multiple stories in the same basic world.

Wait, I know I said "theory crushed" in a different post, but they could be evil in the Pokemon Adventures(not the game or anime). If Sabrina, Lt. Surge, Koga, Lorelei, Agatha, Lance, Bruno, and Pryce were all evil in the manga but not in the games or anime, the Striaton Trio could actually end up being evil and be the Dark Trinity.
I think maybe Sird is one of the shadow Triad... maybe...
The friends I've made throughout my journey!
Enter the world of imagination:
In fact, I have no opinion about this jossing because I didn't really know who were the Dark Trinity before seeing this thread as I have yet to play anything from generation V. When I saw them on BW2 trailer, I thought that was the new design for the Plasma Grunts (I noticed that there was a female Plasma Grunt wearing what seemed to be ninja clothes somewhere in the trailer).
What if she's their mother?
Plus, she can't be one of the Dark trinity because the three of them are male.
That theory just seems so legit, it's hard to think that the manga won't pose the shadow triad as the striaton gym leaders. I don't think that will happen in the anime, however.
I reALLY WANT the striaton trio become a dark trinity
even they not in game
Didn't we have this with Pryce? Oh well, I enjoyed him until he revealed his motives, but it should be fine since they're working as underlings, not the big bad.
Oooh! Ooooh! I have a theory! Perhaps the shadow triad in the Black and White Saga is the Striation Trio but at the end, they reveal their true identities, and explain that they were working as spies and leave Plasma once he's defeated. However, in Black 2/White 2, they are replaced by a new Shadow Trio that works for Ghetsis.
The working as spies part can be removed and instead, they are just beaten by a new Shadow Trio and are replaced for the Black 2/White 2 saga and things proceed as normal
Or we can just have a Pryce/Platinum bodyguard scenario which they disappear into an unknown void, are replaced by the Shadow Trio in Black 2/White 2, then return though some unknown method and defeat the new Shadow Trio.
Anyone for these theories?
