Happy Friday, everyone!
Despite the main Pokemon games’ stories starting off with you as a beginner trainer just trying to take on everyday challenges, the world inevitably falls into danger and only your ten-year-old self can save it. Throughout the years, though, there have been some villains who followed their dreams better than others. Below are a few of my favorite antagonists.
I’ll admit, I’m still not entirely sure as to what their goal was. I believe it was simply just to survive, perhaps make enough money to do so. They were one of the more amusing teams to date, and despite them trying to make nuisances of themselves around the Alola islands, their family bond to one another was endearing.
Team Aqua and Magma
Both of these teams had clear-cut goals and went for them, whether it be raising the sea levels or creating more land for the “good of the world.” They all had something to believe in and even had the strength to acknowledge later on that, “maybe this isn’t such a good idea.”
This team was good enough to be the antagonists for not one, but two generations of Pokemon games. Even though their main goals were making money and controlling Pokemon, their methods and motives were simple and effective to work with the games’ story lines. It was a delight to my young self when playing Pokemon Yellow to go up against Jessie, James, and Meowth in a fight!
What are some of your favorite villain teams?
