Best Pokemon Villain Teams

The Top Ten
1 Aether Foundation

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.

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

BW team plasma may have the heaviest goals but their villainy falters my vote goes to Aether Foundation because BW is overrated.

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

2 Team Skull

Dude, even Guzma sucks, he's a total coward. Dude, look at his golisopod. Its afraid of batling til the end of the battle because it knows that pikachu is gonna knock him dead. They all suck I don't know why team skeell is #2. The only pokemon I like from their team is guzmas scizor. Wanna become the most powerful alolan pokemon gang? Rule #1: Get better POKEMON, DWEEBS! Rule #2: Become way better trainers. I hate these pokemon "villains". After Ash leaves Alola, they suddendly become good guys that train. Unlike team rocket, those dweebs don't stay villains forever. They all suck including Guzma. You remember those 3 main team skull members? Watch alolan open house on sun and moon. They get beaten in a battle by ashs mom. ASHS MOM! What weaklings.

They all suck the only cool guy on their team is their leader Guzma. He has really good pokemon. Look at alolan open house. Those three and almost every member suck. They get knocked out in 1 z-move. Zubat, salandit,garbodor raticate, yungoose are just some of the pokemon these nimrods have. Zubat and garbodor are even said to be 1 of the worst pokemon ever. I would just get a zu bat to evolve it to a crobat, which is a total beast.

In my opinion: they may not have grand, evil goals like some of the other ones, but they sure do have a ton of charm and humor; I even grew kinda fond of them. Plus, they're really fun to battle, and their music themes are just so sick! I've seriously listened to their music on YouTube a thousand times.

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!

3 Team Neo Plasma

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.

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!

One of the teams that is truly evil

4 Team Magma

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

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

5 Team Plasma

I may be a little biased when choosing Team Plasma over all other teams mainly because my very first Pokemon game was actually Black and White. This is not to say obviously that I necessarily dislike the other villain teams. The main reason why I love the original Team Plasma far more than any other villain teams though is because of the people who encompass the team. Ghetsis is undoubtedly evil, but for the members of Team Plasma, they are instead people with truly good intentions. They believe wholeheartedly that they are doing the right thing by "liberating" Pokemon from their trainers, who they believe are imprisoning Pokemon from true happiness, when in reality they are being manipulated by Ghetsis.

Um...I might be a bit biased, but my favorite team is Team Plasma. It's...probably because of...my fangirl crush on N. B-but that's not the only reason I picked this team! Ghetsis is undoubtedly the most vile villain in all of Pokemon. I'll admit I kinda hate him as a person, but as a villain he's good. And N has probably one of the greatest backstories in the whole franchise. He's pretty cute too... (to myself) *Oh, shut up, you weirdo! He's not even real! Get a grip! * (stops talking to myself) *sigh* I am such a dork sometimes...

Even though you don't fight them a lot! Ghetsis is the best Pokemon villain out there though!

Ghetsis is the best villain what

6 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.

Team Galactic, probably the most badass villains. They were capable of many things and could even achieve a new universe

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

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

7 Team Aqua

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.

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!

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.

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

8 Team Rocket

Team rocket lives up to its name - legendary and probably the best pokemon villans in the pokemon series and movies. Should be #1

Team Rocket is very good. Everyone knows their motive and they are funny. Best is that they never give up.
They have done some pretty awesome stuff, though in the BW series, their Nimbasa city plot was marvellous and their capture of Meloetta and the Weather trio. They battled pretty well in Unova and we can say Unova was their Golden time. In Alola, they have pretty strong pokemon like Mimkyu and Be-wear. Team Rocket should be second as Team Skull is under Aether foundation and one and the other thing.

OG Jerks! Don't want anything good to happen. They just want to steal pokemon! There also cowards! Giovanni is a DWEEB!

Eh. They might be the bad guys but they are the good kind of bad guys. At least, most of the time

9 Team Flare

To be fair, Team Flare may not be the best team around, but I really like them a lot especially with Lysandre and Xerosic cause two were definitely interesting in terms of the anime and not to mention their backstories gave me quite a shock and I would really like to see more of it in the future especially the anime cause they could been done a lot better, but I guess that's fine by me.

They want to eliminate all life on the pokemon planet execpt for themselves

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

They where cool in the anime

10 Team Cipher

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

The Contenders
11 Team Dim Sun

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

Shadow pokemon movement lead by krilin pfft hell yeah!

food epic name

12 Team Rainbow Rocket

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

They are the leaders from different dimensions in which they succeded

Team rainbow rocket is the best because they are members are not only the leader from the other team but their runs are harder than the other garage and and they also have the bosses from other Pokemon games that have came through other portals to get where they actually one and took over the world

13 Team Yell
14 Ultra Recon Squad

They weren't really evil

15 Team Something

Now this is just plain ridiculous

16 Team Meanies
17 Team Your Mum

Best team ever (they make great cookies )

18 Team Snagem

(No comment) I like gonzap's black lugia

19 Team AWD
20 Team Vanillite

Team Vanillite is just plain weird.
