Far too mouthy for my own good.

Huh. This would be a nice take on Team Skull. Or another, unique villainous team.hmmm what would you say a villian team wants to win the pokemon league and take it over?
something like terrorist that want to remade gyms and league but want to win it first.
This described Teams Magma, Aqua, Galactic (at least half of Galactic, anyway), Plasma, and Flare. Stealing pokemon as a primary goal has been pretty much limited to the mafia/yakuza (Team Rocket) and street gangs (Team Skull) within the main series. While some of them did steal pokemon, the theft of pokemon was not their primary goal and oftentimes not even necessary for that primary goal; Team Plasma did occasionally steal pokemon but was really trying to get people to no longer have pokemon so they could take over Unova and were just as happy with people willingly releasing pokemon into the wild.Also would be cool to have more villians with goals not related to stealing pokemon but rather lets say other things or destroying things to make something happen like to see what legendary wins or more interesting stuff...
Note that of the teams, two were organized crime (Rocket and Skull), two wanted world domination (Plasma and Flare), two wanted to commit genocide (Galactic and Flare), and three were animal rights groups (Magma, Aqua, and around half of Plasma).
How lacking in world-shaking seriousness having a goal of just stealing pokemon is compared to things like genocide and world domination is why it is I think Rocket was treated so seriously by the games, since they were the first team, while Skull was more comedic relief.
