Best Pokemon Villain Teams


The Top Ten

1 Aether Foundation

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

I just found out why Lusamine looks like Pheromosa, along with Lillie looking like Nihilego. From what I've read on the Internet, it's because of Lusamine's obsession with the Ultra Beasts that she actually tried to dress up like one of them since that's what she loves most, doing the same thing to Lillie, which is why they look the way they do. Man, that's pretty sad when you think about it. After all, Lusamine only became obsessed with Ultra Beasts in the first place because her husband had opened up an Ultra Wormhole where he got lost in it. This was probably what changed Lusamine from once being a kind mother to her children to an abusive antagonist who only cared about what she wanted and not what others wanted, possibly because what she truly wanted was to reunite with her long lost husband at whatever cost no matter what. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

After beating the Mother Beast form of Lusamine in my copy of Pokemon Sun, I can officially say that Lusamine is the Ragyo Kiryuin of Pokemon. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

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

I laughed so hard at that. They were antagonizing me and they are suddenly helping me? They are entertaining so I can't complain about them being complete goofs. - marshadow

Team Skull is a breath of fresh air compared to other villian teams. A lot of villian teams want to kill everyone or take over the world. What about team skull? Nah. - marshadow

3 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

4 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.

"We are done trying to secretly make everyone release their Pokemon so we can take over the world, we will just terrorize Unova now" - Neo Team Plasma in a nutshell (I like that) - marshadow

5 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

Archie was really friendly to you in alpha sapphire. Much like N, he could actually understand why you wanted to stop him. He did not hold anything against you for that. - HeavyDonkeyKong

6 Team Plasma
7 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

I though Cyrus was pretty creepy.

Dang... I just read about Cyrus on Bulbapedia and from what I've read, he's a pretty daunting individual. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

8 Team Rocket

The most famous of this Creole losing team

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

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
