    If Team Flare got rid of all Pokemon, wouldn't that defeat the purpose of having Pokemon to use in the first place? (Unless, similar to Ghetsis' plan, they only spared the "beautiful" Pokemon.)

    Meh, personally, I liked Cipher from Pokemon Collosseum and Pokemon XD better, because they were evil enough to even corrupt Pokemon into Shadow Pokemon, and even made them attack humans. In a future handheld Pokemon Saga, they need to include Cipher in some form, to combine the usual catching of wild Pokemon with Snagging and Purifying Shadow Pokemon--in a handheld!

    Cipher was created by a completely different company than GameFreak, so don't count on that.

    N...no? The Pokémon that they have can help to further their goals... and then they kill them.

    When I came across the first Team Flare grunt in the game I was genuinely "spooked" for an instant. I dunno, the weird shades that gave him a less human first impression, the ominous sound effects and the way the camera zoomed on him made it scary for a moment. This all ended when he started talking and then posed, though.

Team Rocket to me represents those companies that seek money above all else, and is willing to break the law and a few bones to achieve maximum profit.
    I meant that that is how I interpreted the slogan, of course money is above all else regarding Team Rcoket, since they have literally nothing else going for them.

    The Team Flare Admin in the Power Plant...
    I first thought he had an Afro, then a white hat, then when the battle starts, I thought he was bald, then, when the battle ends, it's shown he just has horribly short hair.
    He legitimately freaked me out.

    then they would be on the same level as their enemies. surely you would keep your pokemon to be more powerful.

    What enemies? Had their plan gone off, Team Flare would be the only people left.

    Hilarious fact- Go back to Lysandre Labs after you crush team flare and go to the room with beds in it and that guy gives you taunt- they will still be there as if nothing happened.

    I guess that's done so that you can't accidentally skip over Taunt (which is an oft used move in competitive I believe), and saves them coding in a new scenario for you only visiting the room after beating team flare.

    After you actually defeat the champion, if you talk to him he says he's quitting Team Flare. It's a bit of an odd delay, but at least they put some attention into that.

    It's been brought up a few times, but there's not really much else to say on the matter.

    I have to say that Team Flare easily is one of the best criminal teams in the series - I thought that you battled them quite a lot and their story and motive is creative and much more interesting than the typical 'Steal the pokes'.

    Well, you have to consider that this is an event, and you have to keep in mind that there are other Power Plants.
    So, the first blackout would be different with this one.

    I'm not particularly sure about this. Team Flare have gone under a bit of controversy, mainly for this very reason, and everything around it:

    The big difference here is that Hitler wanted to eliminate those he felt were sub-human (Jewish, gays, cripples, gypsies etc) and create a world with only the one true master race. Team Flare wants to eradicate as many living things as possible, without discriminating, to lessen the strain on the world.

    That's quite a difference.

    Indeed. I personally don't think it's based on that. Especially as there's other small details which don't fit that theory either. 'It's in France which is next to Germany' is not a strong point either, to be frank.

    Frankly I find the idea of Flare, especially the idea of the single qualifier for membership and thus survival being based in payment, to be heavily steeped in the idea of (and subsequent abuse of) indulgences. To simplify the concept, it was a payment to the church in the hopes of being forgiven sins, and some treated it as a way to buy their ways into heaven (though it wasn't supposed to be used as such, there was a loooooot of corruption going on). Even those who firmly believed in it would abuse the system, and Lysandre seems to be one of those sorts. Only he's in the role of the church, accepting money from those who want to be saved.

    They're very '80s. I sort of want to see someone make a music video with Flare cosplayers (and Galactic ones too--they're also trés '80s music, though Flare is more '80s fashion).
