    Speaking of Alexa, I was disappointed that she didn't really show up more more often. Being a journalist and all, I was kinda expecting her to have more presence and more involved especially during the Flare arc.

    Well, every Game has one of those characters that is named and exists but really does nothing like Daisy, Roseanne, etc.

    I think Anthea and Concordia would be better examples.
    These two were on the opening sequence of BW, and has official artworks in B2W2 but they didn't even have much role...

    Were they even named in the game anywhere, I didn't even know who they were for the longest time. Just kept seeing people bringing the names up and being totally confused, thought I'd missed something.

    Yes, they say their names when you talk to them in BW.

    Team flare's were lame... you wouldn't take them seriously...

    This time they should give us something different, like the rulers of the region/GL E4 are actually evil
    like our world we live now...And the team turns out to have good goal.
    Malva was from TF but she didn't have a major role but being E4 member.

    That's the point. Team Flare were meant to be goofy and over-the-top. Except maybe Xerosic and Lysandre.

    Also, I doubt they'll ever do that. I can see Malva's role being expanded on the third version/sequel, but for the rest, I seriously doubt it.

    So then there would be a new elite four.

    There would probably be one new member to replace Malva (I'm hoping for either Flying, or Grass, Rock, or Electric if the respective gym leaders end up replaced as well, none of those types have been done yet), but I don't think the entire Elite 4 would be replaced.

    I'm personally hoping they bring back a previous gym leader to replace Malva, and have her turn into the 6th gen version of wallace/steven (a person trying to find themselves, only to then become champion). Also, it'd be nice to see them turn the elite four into five separate gyms that you have to complete without healing rather than just facing five trainers. If they did that, it'd definitely be more challenging and we could finally see if the 3DS has what it takes to compete graphically with the Vita/other 3D technology.

    I see the BW Team Plasma being the darkest/ crudest out if all the games. So the next generation would seem to counter that to add balance to the series. With all the light colors used in XY , pikachu available , plus all the original starters available this is a more wide ranging game. To really reach down and grab the next generation of youth.

    Hopefully in Z or X2-Y2 they add the darkness and challenge mode for us adults.

    Lysande was jus too epic around a bunch of goof balls for me.

    They also should make malva the new flare leader since there's no team leader that's female yet.

    Hmmm... I see two scenarios here:

    (a) If we get a third version, I think Malva will be on the same rank as Xerosic.
    (b) If we get a sequel, it is entirely possible that Malva is the new Leader. Assuming that Lysandre didn't make it.

    About as much as I believed any other Professor was helping their respective game's Team.

    In short, no, not even remotely. Sycamore stood relatively contrary to Team Flare, in fact.

    Whether we get a third version or sequels, I hope Malva's role gets expanded from being just a E4 and Team Flare member and that's it. She's the first E4 member (at least in the games) to be affiliated with the regional team, she NEEDS expansion. Hopefully this also means our wish for a female evil team leader will finally come true.

    Why didn't Lysandre just leave Pokemon alone and only wipe out humanity since humanity's the cause of wars?

    Needs more read:

    "Pokémon are wonderful beings. Humans have worked with Pokémon, and we have helped each other flourish. But precisely because of that, they will inevitably become tools for war and theft!"

    Yeah, I know he said that. So, why not only kill the ones that are using them as tools for war and theft?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't that sort of out of his hands? I was pretty sure that the Ultimate Weapon would just indiscriminately attack everything, and his talks of killing Pokemon were just him justifying the fact that they'd be victimized by the weapon as well.

    Lysandre's whole point was that everybody, at their core, as self-serving. Everybody has the potential to care only about themselves when pushed.

    He didn't exactly seem overjoyed about killing them all.

    I'm going to be honest Lysandre was the most well written and enjoyable boss character, which makes me even more annoyed by his design.

    If he was designed in a way that didn't scream 'hey I'm the boss of team flare' he would be the best boss character hands down.

    Yeah, but just chalk that up to "Game Freak isn't subtle and never will be."

    I agree with you there. And hey, I don't give a dime about his overall design, I liked it and that's what matters. And that battle theme... EPICNESS!
