Nor would I (I would actually love another situation like what was in the Johto games), but it is an all-too-convenient narrative structure for them to allow the climaxes of both the villain plot and the mascot encounter to synchronize.I actually wouldn't object to giving Team Skull absolutely no relation to the mascot legendaries at all.
Well, their goals seem small-scale right now. But if you had asked me before the release of XY what I thought Team Flare's goal was going to be, I don't think I would have ever said, "Use the mascot's power to revive an ancient superweapon so as to wipe out all other humans and Pokémon on the planet."Their goals at the moment just seem too... Small minded to bring in such a huge power like that.
I've already found BS, and I'm only up to 4:20 in that video so far. The Gen VI legendaries AREN'T Norse Mythology, they just happen to be the same animals.
Lockstin knows that about the legendaries as well. He says that they are based on Hindu mythology. It's all explained in part 1 of his theory. Did you watch part 1 and 2 at least?The Gen VI legendaries AREN'T Norse Mythology, they just happen to be the same animals.
I just don't buy this whole theory in general. A lot of it just feels way to reachy. I also don't buy that there's going to be any sort of reboot to Pokemon.
It's gonna be funny when Game Freak tricks us savvy ones by doing the obvious.I just knew there would be someone else beside Team Skull. At this point I'm willing to believe Skull will become the good guys by the end of the game and the Aether Foundation will become the principal antagonists.
i can see it being possible, mostly because Skull and Aether seem to play off of classic chaos vs. order, black vs. white, slobs vs. refined (and so on), but as you said at this point it'd be so obvious to do a bait-and-switch plot with how they've been set up.It's gonna be funny when Game Freak tricks us savvy ones by doing the obvious.
It hasn't been confirmed that the Aether Foundation is an evil team, for now they just seem to care for Pokémon. So I think they should get their own thread, which I shall make now.Someone please update the title!!!
The Aether Foundation works in the Alola region. The foundation’s goal is to care for Pokémon that have been hurt.
The Aether Foundation has constructed an artificial island called Aether Paradise. There, they not only provide shelter for Pokémon, but also conduct various research projects. It seems that the main character will also be able to visit Aether Paradise during the adventure.
The lovely Lusamine functions as the Aether Foundation’s president
The Aether Foundation branch chief sports green sunglasses. They’re his signature accessory! He seems very proud of his position as branch chief.
The assistant branch chief of Aether Paradise has a caring personality, so she’s loved by all the Aether Foundation employees.
Employees of the Aether Foundation
The employees of the Aether Foundation shelter and care for Pokémon. Their uniforms appear to depend on which division they belong to.

That's why I find it hilarious. Personally, I still consider the good vs. evil/Black and White Morality plot to be the obvious, though the opposite may be true because it seems like everyone's calling the Aether Foundation out on the ulterior motive.i can see it being possible, mostly because Skull and Aether seem to play off of classic chaos vs. order, black vs. white, slobs vs. refined (and so on), but as you said at this point it'd be so obvious to do a bait-and-switch plot with how they've been set up.
I totally agree with this. He really pulls off the edgy feel. The way he moves in game. His movements are rough. I'm really hoping that he becomes a rival of sorts. He could be my new Silver XD.So Gladion may be one of my favorite Pokémon character designs. I mean, yes, he looks like a complete edgelord, but he does it so well.
I already posted it, but nobody noticed/cared, so thanks for bringing it up again.Fun fact about Gladiun: if he's named after a flower like the other Skull bigwigs, he's probably named after the gladiolus. It's named after the Latin word for sword, and is often called the 'sword lily.'
The connection to Lillie was obvious from appearance alone, but this is a nice touch. I hope he also uses Bisharp or Aegislash to reference the sword part.
But I'm sure everyone already figured it out and I just wasted my time researching.
They are seriously far too likable. XD The theme is badass too.First off, I want to say that I really like Team Skull's overall design and feel. The gangster challenging you to a rap battle vibe is so strong and so hilarious that it's just fantastic. Ridiculously awesome stuff seem to be appealing to me more often lately for some reason. I also kind of like the hint of closeness among the team with Plumeria being the big sister of Team Skull and calling the grunts her stupid brothers and sisters. That would be kind of refreshing for an evil team to have a more family connection among their ranks, especially when the higher ups tended to look down on the grunts and other fellow members.
