    You may be onto something. This seems like a very good explanation as to why they are called Team Flare and what their objectives could be. In fact, I think if their objectives in each version were different, it would be cool. Here's an idea going off of yours:

    In X, they could be wanting to destroy something so they capture Yveltal, so you need to capture Xerneas to defeat them and rescue Yveltal.
    It would be vice versa in the other game, with them wanting to create and capturing Xerneas.

    Lol, they aren't going to put politics into a children's game.

    I think what Zephraxe said might be what their objective will be. It's a pretty good hunch.

    That sounds really, really good. Destroy Kalos with Yveltal and remake it in Flare's image with Xerneas.

    My reaction
    But really, this got me thinking a couple of things: First, Xerneas. It's a deer with huge antlers, and I got thinking, "The antlers look a little like a tree. But not just any tree, a FAMILY TREE." A family tree, as many of you know, is a diagram connecting all of our family together, in other words, connecting related life together, supporting the "Xerneas is the Life Pokemon" theory you've just presented. Now to Yveltal, it's a giant bird. The whole "Destruction and Reconstruction" talk gave me an epiphany. Yveltal is a PHOENIX. What do Phoenixs do? They burst into flames and resurrect in their own ashes. Phoenix death and rebirth= DESTRUCTION AND RECONSTRUCTION.
    I really must thank you for making me think these things.

    I bet the "team flare wants money" thing is just a red herring and they will actually have a bigger plan like team plasma

    I also think the same about them. I suppose Team Plasma started a new trend then.

    If they really just want the money they probably want to capture the legendary so they can sell it.

    Or they could just want money. The only thing Team Rocket had to do with a legendary was that they created Mewtwo. After that, nothing.

    I just had a random and crazy idea. Team Flare gives me that same mafia/thug vibe as Team Rocket. So, what if the "big scoop of the century" is that Giovanni is also the leader of Team Flare?

    Perhaps they use all their Money to Rebuild Kalos after they destory it. I mean, Xerneas can't just say, "Put a Building here, oh and a Pool here, too!"

    If Team Flare's goal is solely about money and getting rich then I would be a very worried Meowth in Kalos.

    Wait, what? No... I just want to see a new leader. I'm done seeing Giovanni's face so many times. I thought he was gone because of the Celebi event back in HGSS then he showed up again in BW2. I really don't want to see Giovanni be the cause of Team Flare, it would make me feel like I'm cheated for for creativity of the team because the developers were too lazy to come up with a new leader.

    Have the women leader have a noble woman laugh. But yeah, I hope that if we do get a female leader that she has a strong team that is enough to make you fear her (like Maxie from pokemon RSE where his Camerupt's earthquake was something to fear). I want her to be the cruel leader who is more focused on her selfish goals and doesn't sympathize easily yet maybe add a twist like she treats her pokemon better than her men and that is the cause of her downfall (some of her men might abandon her and pass information to you or help you in battle).

    I honestly liked the whole: "They ARE after money, but they disrupt the balance of nature and cause all sorts of issues for Kalos, albeit unintentionally of course." I'm also liking the: "leader is going to be female" thing. I mean look at them! Fashionable, after money- it's practically begging for a female version of Giovanni (and I hope I'm not sounding sexist).
    I am pretty excited to see what they do with this game. I just hope it doesn't make me sad like Black/White did (it was good, just not "Pokemon" good....). But I have faith in Game Freak!

    But, realistically, I think it's going to end up with a Team Plasma route, which was cool (but predictable). At least we're not getting spoiled about it. And while it would be nice to have a female antagonist, we may not, I just hope I'm proven wrong!
    I do hope that they go a different way. They might because they're doing another: "Start off fresh" thing to X/Y.

    I also would have loved a dual team thing, but it would have been announced by now....

    This!

    I would like a nice sweet looking head honcho who becomes more evil throught the game.

    Also until the event in HGSS I thought Giovanni had turned over a new leaf, now I'm not sure.

    I'd also like to see a female Boss, but... I'd also like to see a return of Giovanni. He was the original big bad, if anyone deserves to make a return it's him and Team Rocket, especially after the foreshadowing in Gen II and IV. But even in the more likely event that they aren't mentioned at all, it's good to see a team that has more pragmatic goals than Aqua, Magma, Galaxy and Plasma. Somehow battling plain old thugs is more satisfying than battling cults and animal rights activists. Shadow Lucario mentioned that Team Rocket only created Mewtwo, but otherwise are not involved with legendaries in Gen I. And in Gen II, Lugia and Ho-Oh weren't involved with Team Rocket's plan, as far as I can remember. It'd be refreshing to see Team Flare's story segregated from Xerneas and Yveltals'.

    They need to finally have a Female Bag Guy Boss, its been all guys up to now, They did finally have a female Professor in BW1-2 and Finally they seem to have Villain group that isn't after world domination (its been that way for 5 Gens) with no real affect to anything or maybe not looking for the Legendarys just something else, probably just money like they seem to be after so far.

    Only in the anime. In the games, Team Rocket has absolutely no ties to any Legendary Pokémon.

    I loved Team Aqua and Team Magma just because their plans were so ludicrous! I'd like Team Flare to be more realistic though. Team Rocket were about making money (selling Slowpoketails for $1,000,000, etc), but they weren't really that organised and it felt like everything they did was just random. I think it would be better if Flare focused on one thing to make money for the entirety of the game, like fossils, as have already been mentioned before, or Pokemon smuggling, or something, just something that stays coherent.

    I always felt that Team Magma had a rather sensible goal, and I guess Team Aqua's would make sense as well if we assume that the Pokémon world has a different land-to-water ratio than ours does. The problem was that their leaders were colorblind idiots who slept through too much of their science and geography classes.
