Kyogre also expands the seas using massive tidal waves. And besides, Groudon could just raise more land some amount feet a year. No harm done.
Nah that stuff comes from Groudon shaking the earth apart and messing with the crust plates. Tidal waves don't increase water, the just displace it. And but you can't do minimal expansion with Groudon- a volcano blows or it doesn't and once it does it's uh rather hard to stop. It's a massive event. Whereas rains are common and happen anyway, the floods will just be a bit more.

It certainly will take some time. It's going to take all the time for you to figure out how to transport enough goods and food all throughout the ocean to sustain as much life as there is right now.

And how is cosplaying as a pirate in the middle of Petalburg Woods practical?
Hey we don't have to transport too much in the way of food- we can have greenhouses on the city-ships and trawl for fish as well. Easy once you get it going!

Pirates we may be, but we are cool, comfortable and covered. Best thing for a hot, buggy forest!

But will they want to? So now you're going to be forcing people to do what they don't want to?
Yep, because we will create cities which offer a good quality of life and amazing bounty. Those who don't move will likely be flooded, but that is their own stubborn fault. If you knew chances were that your entire city would be flooded a bit more every year and eventually submerged, would you not move? The instinct for survival tends to be stronger than stubborn pride. But it's entirely their choice.
