I know Team Flare's ultimate goal!
It's the complete buyout of all remaining 'Team' organizations in order to ban together to control the world! They will buyout the Team Rocket, Magma, Aqua, Galactic, and Plasma members to form the ultimate evil organization whose rule spreads across the entire world!
At the top, the leaders will be Cyrus, Ghetsis, Maxie, and Archie with the overall organization head being Giovanni (since he always seemed the most business like and looking to pull a move like this).
It might just be me thinking it, but I feel like that direction would be incredibly epic. I do agree though that I sincerely doubt financial gain is their only objective. They always have some kind of ulterior motive (whether the rest of the grunts know about it or not). I feel like all their money will be going towards some kind of master scheme involving at least one of the legends. Maybe they'll be trying to capitalize on the new type: Fairy.

Maybe, since their ultimate goal is to make money, could they perhaps try to capture and sell Xerneas and Yveltal? Something like, Xerneas is captured, which knocks off the balance of Life/Destruction, so Yveltal goes on a rampage. So not only do you have to rescue the captured Fairy deer, but you have to watch your back for an angered Yveltal!

Mono-Normal Playthrough Team:
Gonna repost this here:
Life, Destruction, Money. How would these three connect?
Here's my take on Team Swag/Flare/Flair's business.
The thing that I think would best connect all three is nature.
They are probably disguised as a huge business firm that earns money from all sorts of industries (probably fashion, technology, etc...), abusing all the natural resources for their own good disregarding the miserable effects it had on nature, such as deforestation, erosion, chemical contamination, pollution, and loss of biodiversity. Because of this, one of the legendaries would probably go on an outrage, while the other seeks your help to stop the evil team (but tests you first as always), as well as end the other legend's rampage.
This team might not be seeking out the legendary, much like how Rocket was. All they just care about is profit.
As people have thought before, I'm thinking that Alexa works for the Team's Boss (But maybe not consciously knowing it) and somehow get's tied into the plot. That or she's an Admin for the Team. If the team is in fact a large corporation across the region, I see no reason to assume some of the employees are in fact members.
..Is anyone kinda disappointed about the team goal?
I mean we just had the liberation of pokemon, and now making money seems like a bit of a step down.
Wasn't making money a Team Rocket thing as well? (slowpoke tails and all that)
If they can make it into a deep storyline, then okay, but I do not see it happening.. hopefully I will be surprised.

If they want money, I'm pretty sure threatening to destroy Kalos with a legendary might be a good enough reason for people to pay up millions of poke $.
But I'm wondering if they're gonna be more subtle than that?? Judging my their uniforms, I'm going with NO.
CASUAL REMINDER: I'm Back. Not that anyone cares.
They could be smarter than Team Rocket and have grander schemes up their sleeves.
I actually think that they have far more extreme methods of gaining profit than just stealing and black market negotiations.
I would love it if Team Flare didn't have the intention of waking up Xerneas/Yveltal or whatever - I'd rather it be a consequence of their doings, so basically happening by accident without the villanous team even knowing about it. 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.

Maybe they are circus people, they abuse the pokémon behind the curtains?
The ultimate goal is to capture Xerneus or Yveltal, to showcase them like KING KONG aka 8th wonder of the world...
In the end X/Y brakes loose in lumiose City and you have to defeat/capture it.
Yeah, king kong!
Imagine a giant bird cage in lumiose a top of the eiffel tower. or a parc cage in the catacombs in lumiose...
Or an opera building with pokémon in chains

Welcome Gen VI
I don't like their designs that much. If their suits were black or gray, then they might have looked like a professional, sinister group, but the orange suits just sorta make them look derpy. Kinda kills my hope for a more mature story.
On the other hand, the Professor's design is great. He looks a bit like Okabe from Steins;Gate, doesn't he?
Well, my verdict is that they aren't really in it "just for the money". I think CoroCoro is just teasing about it and we all got the implication of it wrong.
The article depicts Team Flare/Flair members as "suspicious individuals in fashionable red suit", which, from their outward appearances, seem to represent the stereotypical organization whose main goal is to make money (such as Team Rocket).
The problem is that the last sentence, "彼らはお金儲けが目的なのか・・・！？", literally means "Is their goal to make money...!?", which is very likely just a question to tease the readers. This strongly implies that there are some other grand schemes beneath their outward appearances, not just money-making.
I think this team's beliefs will be opposites of N's in the sense that they will not care about Pokemon and their environments at all. The plant reflects this very well. I suspect that area was once very green and 'lush' until Team Flare built that plant and ruined the environment to make money. Very reflective of greedy business companies in the real world. I do like Munchys idea of the Legendarys coming out as a response to the team disrupting a balance. Could very easily see Xerneas making a scene at that plant.

It makes sense if Team Flair is negatively affecting nature with their money making schemes and it's throwing the balance of the Kalos region out of whack. Xerneas and Yvetal obviously have a cycle of life theme about renewal and destruction.
Certainly beats all the people speculating that their goals are a "cover" and that they want to steal the legendary. Why would we want that same plot again? it's boring.
Personally from what we've seen of the team's grunts, I feel like that they're going to have a huge facade in Kalos, most likely as a huge corporation, due to the fact the grunt's looks like they're wearing business suits. Sure, the bright orange colors might make it look tacky, but if the boss is giving his grunts business suits, then I have a feeling that we're going to get a very formal villainous team leader, and I'm going to actually find it ironic if it's any of the main party's (Calem, Serena, Shauna, Trevor, and Teirno) father/mother.
Like I said this morning, I'm thinking that they're going to use the legendaries to cause an apocalypse and present themselves as the saviors of Kalos, the rebuild the region in their liking and get most of the money made in that reason. Though that's just one of the possible plot twists that could happen.
