Best Pokemon Villain Teams


The Top Ten

1 Aether Foundation

Just play Sun and Moon. You'll see what I like mean.

Lusamine alone is arguably the best villain in the Pokemon series. But the things she had the Aether Foundation conduct were just plain unexpected.

The more that I read about these guys the more that I want Sun and Moon LOLOL. - HeavyDonkeyKong

What was she going to do with the other Pokémon? :c

2 Team Skull

Those guys are some badass punk pirates! The moment I heard the main theme of their team in one of the new Pokemon Sun and Moon promotional videos, I already began to love them! My only peeve is that there's a team with the same name from the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon series. Other than that, I can't wait until I battle one of those grunts! They're much better than those lame wannabe Team Flare grunts! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

It was hilarious when two Team Skull grunts left after being beaten by me during my first trial, only for them to come back and try to warn me about the Totem Pokemon. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

They make me laugh

3 Team Neo Plasma

Way better written than Rocket, despite being in games called "Black and White", they really do seem to have a good motive, but lots of hypocrisy to balance them out, showing that their story isn't so "Black and White" and is vaguer than that, any one who was picking Rocket is likely a Genwunner, just probably.

This man tries to freeze children alive!

Come on,I love this team

The idea that the organization split after the two different "sects" of the original team Plasma went their ways. That was actually realistic in terms of what would likely happen to any group after massive internal turmoil such as in B/W. Some chose to follow N and the ones who stuck with Ghetsis became Neo-Team Plasma.

4 Team Galactic

I wonder how their redesign would look like if Diamond and Pearl ever got remakes. I would like for their outfits to be more appealing while still retaining what people liked about Team Galactic. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Just change them so they are more threatening so that they can get a game with them (Super diamond and Hyper Pearl)

In platinum, Cyrus brought out Dialga, Palkia and even Giratina! In the anime he nearly destroyed the universe. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

Mars and jupiter are turbo hotties

5 Team Magma

I kind of have a crush on Courtney from Team Magma, especially after seeing her in ORAS and Pokémon Generations. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I have a crush on Shelly from aqua in alpha sapphire. Am I weird? Or no? - HeavyDonkeyKong

6 Team Aqua

In Alpha Sapphire, Archie looks like a total ripped badass captain! Same goes with Matt! That guy looks like he can lift one Wailord 100 times for his daily exercise routine! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

At least these guys have an actual reason for what they have done

Ah, sun and moon sucks. Sorry fanboys. Aqua and Magma are the most " you just wanna punch them in the face" people. And they have a great story, unlike team skull and the aether foundation.

Where is Kyogre said Archie

7 Team Rocket

The most famous of this Creole losing team

Team rocket lives up to its name - legendary

The way the trio and Giovanni were portrayed in the BW Anime though... Shockingly good though. - HeavyDonkeyKong

They did so well in BW, honestly that gen was their time to shine. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

8 Team Plasma
9 Team Cipher

This is partially why people who played the Pokemon gamecube spin off games knew that the Aether Foundation would be the bad guys. Aether is very, very similar to Cipher. - marshadow

What the heck is team cipher... Please don't tell me it's gravity falls...

10 Team Flare

Team Flare was very underwhelming. If they didn't rush the story and had more time of their arc and not give us "oh yeah I'm going to kill everyone and only have me and team flare alive in the new beautiful world I imagined" all of the sudden, they would've been better team. - marshadow

The only ones who I likes were Lyasandere and Xerosic. Those grunts were stupid and not even in a funny way either lolol. - HeavyDonkeyKong

The Contenders

11 Team Dim Sun

Ooh dim sun from the pokemon ranger game, they should be higher. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

12 Team Rainbow Rocket

Wham! Team Rocket is Back! This time, for control of Ultra Space!

13 Ultra Recon Squad
