    I have a feeling that their leader is going to have a alternative motive that involves both Xerneas and Yveltal..

    I would find it funny if it was Team Flare in Y and Team Flair in X because of the legendaries in each game and the leaders reflected the name hahaha.

    Wouldn't surprise me, they would have the same motive in money but lets say ex is all female grunts and has a female leader and is after the Fairy legend whereas in Y it is all male and they aim for the pure power of Yveltal and it's wicked sense of destruction. Would be pretty cool actually.

    Just wait for a team called Glacier or Chill to arrive. I wonder if there is a third team? Team Mono!

    Buy them at Pokebay? On a serious note, it seems at the moment Team Flare just wants money and a beautiful world, but what will they gain from it besides having the world match their standards? The money could be used to fund the experiments of whatever they plan to do, which leads me to this question: Is there going to be a 2nd Mewtwo? For years I always saw Mewtwo as unique and as the only one because he was the only successful experiment from what I know. However, now Mewtwo has 2 forms and the anime makes is sound like there's a 2nd Mewtwo. I know, anime =/= game, but I think the game still had some influence from the anime to a certain degree (the Spike Eared Pichu).

    Summary: Legendary pokemon once resided with humans until war and bloodshed turned the center of Johto into a wasteland 150 years ago. The legendaries scattered to keep peace. 5 years after Red was defeated, he and the Green are in a situation like before war broke out. They must find the cause of the disappearances of the legendary pokemon or the world would be thrown into disarray.

    My head cannon always sort of leaned towards the idea that the player never really catches the legendary Pokemon, which is why they appear in multiple generations. It explains why Mewtwo appears in HG/SS and possibly in X/Y. Though I hope they give an actual explanation considering how important Mewtwo appears to these games.
    even if we don't understand each other, that's not a reason to reject each other. There are two sides to any argument. Is there one point of view that has all the answers? Give it some thought.
    ^ This is the reason why I like arguing. If I come off as standoffish or overly angry in an argument, don't worry. I'm probably having the time of my life. Whether I agree with them or not, the pokemon fandom has a lot of different opinions, and I love how nobody is afraid to share them.

    I've always thought of legendary Pokemon as still being a species like any other. Arceus is the hardest to explain though

    I'm really liking the look of this team. It's also refreshing to have a realistic goal, although I'm sure there will be more to it than that. It will be interesting to see how they utilise/relate to Xerneas and Yveltal

    I agree; it seems a bit off to just want to make money. Why would they be the evil team just for wanting to make money?
    Really interested in how they'll tie in with the plot and Yveltal/Xerneas.

    Team Rocket didn't have a motive except money and extortion. They did make a legendary, maybe Team Flare wants to collect money so they could destroy the world, through the earth's core. I don't know just a thought since their related to Fire, that could tie in with Yveltal and in X you have to get Xerneas to stop them and in Y you have to get Yveltal before they do. Money can't be their only motive.

    But even though in the game it wasn't shown it was hinted at, take a look at Cinnabar's Pokemon Mansion. I don't know if it was hinted that Team Rocket funded the expedition. All I know it was a group of scientists. Money can't be their only goal. Maybe the rumor was proved fake but wasn't there something about the team in x and y using time travel. Maybe their funding that, it could explain the backwards compatibility function.

    I see them having Nothing to do with the Legendaries but one of their schemes,tied to an awakening accident happens and you have to calm them down alongside Team Flare

    Maybe they will try and capture it to sell it...

    Or it would be hilarious if they had absolutely no connection to the legendaries

    I really hope they don't have another ridiculous goal Team Aqua, Team Magma, Team Galactic, Team Plasma... I can't by any of them as villains... Their goals all either over the top or cliche "recreate world" "world domination" any antagonist using either is an automatic discredit in my book... (Team Rocket and Cipher for best villain groups)

We've had plenty of those kinds of teams whose sole and only purpose is to awaken the legendary Pokémon to "rule the world". I liked Wulava's prediction of Team Flare kind of "disrupting" the balance of nature, thus affecting Xerneas/Yveltal, but not intentionally - they just want the money without thinking about consequences.
    I like this idea I hope it works out like this would be a nice change of pace

    Sorry but I disagree. Well-Intentioned Extremists are my favorite kind of antagonists because they're trying to do good while blind to their wrongness of their ways. It seems... real.

    Maybe they are going to sell Xerneas' horns and Yveltal's wings....
    Or they make them read future/past to see how to make money


    but i think they just will be ordinary pokemon robbers

    Pokemon robbers who want to get money is perfect to me. Some fresh air after all those extremist guys.

    I'm guessing their whole money making thing is just a cover, as well, since I can't imagine how they'd take advantage of Pokemon representing life and destruction respectively for that aim.

    I think they could try and make money through villainous methods like stealing rare items such as fossils or pokemon eggs. Then their leader will be wrapped up in a tower in the centre of the evil lair (possibly that place we saw in the first trailer in the desert) planning to steal xerneas or yveltal to sell xerneas' gems from its antlers and possibly yveltals feathers?

    Team Flare/Flair Boss: - Goes on ebay to sell yveltal feathers/xerneas gems to make a living, but nobody buys them -
    - 20 days later the boss is in an allyway -
    Hey, kid, want to buy some feathers/gems?
    Kid: Can I smoke them?
    Uh... no, sorry
    Kid: No thanks then
    - Cries -

    No, I agree that there's something else about them we don't know about. Maybe they'll capture them instead to force people to sell their pokemon for the team.
