    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.

    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'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?

    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.

    I need one of those outfits in my life.

    That is all I have to say on them.

    Oh, and I'm not sure if there'll be two teams. If their sole purpose is for money and no Pokemon mentioned then what would the other team want?
    If anybody remembers, did they introduce Team Aqua and Team Magma at the same time?

    I'm expecting them to use Fire-Types. But does that mean... That one will likely use Fennekin? HOW DARE THEY USE FENNEKIN FOR EVIL!!! RAGH!!!

    But seriously, looks like the Fire Place in the trailer is their base, and the early members will probably use Litleo and Fletchling, maybe Fennekin. I could also see them using soem other Pokemon, like Vivillon and Noivern, because they have 'Flair'. Perhaps Fairy-Types, they seem very 'Flair'-ish, and it'd be nice to see the evil team use them. OMG!!! The leader is going to have the most evil, troll Pokemon of all time! Sylveon!

    Hmm... I wonder if Newtwo will tie in with them?

    And hopefully they'll do the standard x number of small bases, then HQ.

    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.

    I'd love it if their motivation did stop at "making money." It probably won't, alas. Odds are, there'll be some alternate plot point in there; a reason why they need the money. Personally, I think it'd be awesome to have the villainous team's goals be nice and simple like that, and for plot reasons perhaps explore the individuals in the group. Maybe one Flare Grunt needs money because he lost his job and needs to support his family, while another Flare Grunt may have had to drop out of school to support her family in hard times and needs the money to pursue the dreams that she never got the opportunity to attempt. Of course, though, they'd be interspersed with Grunts who just want the money for the perks of being wealthy.

    This villainous team.

    I can't.

    They are so sexy. Why am I finding a villainous team sexy. Is their leader Lady Gaga? Lady Gaga is a big deal in France. And an equally big deal in Japan. Oh lord.

    The leaders and grunts would be different in gender and one would be more wanting fairies and the other more wanting darks.

    Seriously though, after you said that, i can actually see an eccentric fashion-obssesed female being their leader. I dunno how gamefreak could incorperate this into the desire to make loads of money, but id like to see them try. Am i the only one who thinks that theses outfits make team flair/flare look slightly more professional? I mean, team plasma grunts looked like astronauts in b/w1

    I think their designs are brilliant, but the goal feels lack luster. You have the Pokemon Mother Nature and the Pokemon Grim Reaper at your disposal, and all you can think about is money!?

If ANY of these next starters are part Fighting and Bidoof is catchable in game I'm starting with Chespin, dumping that moefoe in the PC the first chance I get, catching a Bidoof, and PWNing my rival's abomination with Surf. This, I swear.

    I would join any evil team if it offered me a uniform that looks like that. Also, if they do turn out to be fire-type users, could that be indicative of a larger focus on fire types this gen? I hope so.

    Yeah I know same, but the two Pokemon are complete opposites like this quote below.

    You would have to have separate intentions to go after Mother Nature and the Grim Reaper of Pokemon? You can't want both cos they both represent different intentions.
