Did Pokémon's Stories Play Their Better Cards Too Soon?
You see what I'm getting at? Did Pokémon's stories (on the aspect of the villainous teams) play their better cards too soon?
Let's take a look at the following criminal teams, Team Plasma and Team Flare. Team Plasma wanted to entirely separate mankind from Pokémon, which means they are against all Trainers, breeders, people using Pokémon as servants, others using them to work, whatever. And while the original leader N believed in this goal, his foster father Ghetsis wanted the Team to win so that he'd be the only one using any Pokémon, which would give him an advantage over everyone else, and he'd become the most powerful man in the region. As for Team Flare, Gen 6 just came out, so little is known yet about them, but so far we know they're aiming to make money, and also to "make the world beautiful". Whatever their plan is, be sure it involves the Legendary Pokémon in a way or another. Because that's what the later criminal teams have done starting with Gen 3.
