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.

2 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.

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.

3 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!

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.

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.

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

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

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.

6 Team Rocket

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.

7 Team Magma

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

8 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!

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

9 Team Cipher

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

10 Team Flare

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

The Contenders
11 Team Rainbow Rocket
12 Team Dim Sun

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

13 Team Yell
14 Ultra Recon Squad
15 Team Something
16 Team Meanies
17 Team Your Mum
18 Team Snagem
19 Team AWD
20 Team Vanillite

Team Vanillite is just plain weird.
