    What was the point of those machines on Lysandre's back in the first place?

    Summary: Legendary pokemon once resided with humans until war and bloodshed turned the center of Johto into a wasteland 150 years ago. The legendaries scattered to keep peace. 5 years after Red was defeated, he and the Green are in a situation like before war broke out. They must find the cause of the disappearances of the legendary pokemon or the world would be thrown into disarray.

    To transfer the energy of Xerneas/Yveltal in the Ultimate Weapon. Check Bulbapedia.

    Really? I thought that whole underground building around Xerneas/Yveltal was meant to transfer their power.

    It was confirmed by one of the makers, not the game itself. Although after you capture Xerneas/Yveltal, Lysandre does say that he intends to steal their power back.

    It's the exact same plot just replace Yveltal with Xerneas. He's only using the legendary to power the weapon, the Legendaries don't do anything themselves.

    I always thought the machines on his back were used for mega evolving Gyarados, like with the Mega Ring, because you need an object in addition to the stone and because he didn't mega evolve it until that point.

    Yea that's what I thought. I really thought he would have mega houndoom...would have been way cooler and just make more sense.

    Idk but their goal doesn't seem as solid as the other villainous teams.

    I think the "using the legendary Pokemon's power" makes no sense in version X. I mean,Xerneas just gives away its energy during its lifespan then turns into a tree. What power would be left to use?

    No, Lysandre's Mega Ring was literally a ring on his left hand. The device on his back was meant to take back Xerneas/Yveltal's energy. Though he hadn't been wearing the ring previously either.

    Assuming that he isn't dead.

    Presumably the power that it had been building up while resting as a tree.

    Motive wise, I see the difference between Team Flare and Team Magma. But what about asthetic wise? they both pretty much represent fire and intellegence?
    Pokemon X: 1435 - 4013 - 1487 (,,)

    I am searching for the following Pokemon
    (Modest), (Modest), (Hasty/Naive), (Timid/Jolly/Hasty/Naive), (Timid/Modest), (Jolly/Adamant)

    I can provide you with the following Pokemon…
    (Timid), (Jolly), (Timid), (Rash), (Bold), (Careful), (Relaxed with Seismic Toss).

    I’m also offering a legit Shiny Foongus. Looking for a good natured shiny in return!

    No, Magma is magma and hoods. Not really much else.

    Flare is fire and style.

    The goal of team flare during the game was pretty vague (I had to really pay attention to understand what they were trying to do) so I thought that was weird. Team Flare wasn't my favorite enemy team. Honestly I felt like Team Plasma did a better job at making their intentions a little more clear and when I think about it Team Plasma actually got stuff done. I didn't get that feel with Team Flare.

    Team Flare, yeah I fought lots of them in my games. They are led by Lysander, who is a friend of Professor Sycamore who wants to use the legendary life and death pokemon to destroy the world. Luckily he was stopped

    And they all lived together in the house that Jack built! (sorry, I felt like I had to say it)

    Any way, I felt like one way they could've had Team Flare make more sense would be if Lysandre purposely created TF to make sure that all of the criminals and corrupted people in Kalos were all together. Then, once the Ultimate Weapon was completed, he would double cross Team Flare and destroy them all to make certain that he would wipe out all evil

    I liked Lysandre because he knew that what he was doing was wrong, yet he felt that there was no choice but to annihilate the world for the better good. That, I find interesting. He's not as near as deep as N IMO, but I still appreciate him an anti-villain. Malva's unique because she's a member of the elite four as well.

    As for the rest of Team Flare, well...

    I actually genuinely don't like Team Flare. :S The organisation is almost nothing like Lysandre...to me they felt incompetent, and literally the only crime organisation in the main series that wasn't interesting or creative overall. They don't do much interesting things throughout the story, and they didn't even make the ultimate weapon. (which by the way, doesn't make sense in the X version because Xerneas, who supposedly powers it, is the Life Pokemon) Their ultimate goal felt pretty similar to Team Rocket's, so nothing too new here really. Also, why did they have to be called Team Flare? We already have Magma and Plasma (plasma can be extremely hot or extremely cold), we don't need another fiery team name. I also find their battle theme DREADFUL...granted some people may like it which is perfectly fine, but for me it's quite irritating to my ears so I'd turn the volume down completely during most of the battles and play music on my iPod which I find much more fitting and epic.

    The last thing I'd like to mention is the outfits. They don't look interesting at all IMO...just stupid. I'm not a fan of red blazers, sorry guys.

    They weren't really supposed to be. They were shallow, high-end, pseudo-idealistic snobs, which are exactly the kind of people who would fall for Lysandre's pitch.

    Well no, but what difference does that make? The idea was that Lysandre discovered the ultimate weapon (being descended from AZ's brother and all), and instead of focusing on the purpose for which it was originally created, became obsessed with its potential for fulfilling his ambitions.

    What kind of energy the weapon is fed doesn't matter; it just needs the energy. The weapon itself is built to function two ways: as a resurrection machine, and as a weapon of mass destruction. Feed it the energy it needs to activate, and then use whichever function suits your needs.

    Team Rocket were the Yakuza/mafia, not a genocidal cult of elitists.

    Because it is a pun on "flair," which they certain possess in spades, and because Magma, Plasma, and Flare all have very different connotations despite pertaining to things that involve heat.

    I assume you mean Team Plasma 2 because Team Flare isn't really similar to Team Plasma 1 at all. And as for TP2, well, ehhhhhh I guess. "Use mystical Pokémon/object to cause devastation and claim the land for ourselves" and all that, although Plasma 2 was out-and-out malicious and did not try to mask their goals under noble intentions.

    Tell ya what. I went up Mehnir trail to Geosenge town before I battled the last gym. Then came back down the trail and beat the gym. Next time I headed up the trail Team Flare jumped out from behind the rock to battle me. Kinda startled me a bit. I had jus been up there and battled everyone I seen. Then I team Flare grunt jumps out of hiding.
