@ AW Great that makes 2 of us .
I think the evil team may simply be common thieves, well at first. They may develop into a more Rocketesk sort of plot, selling Pokémon as they learn it's profitable. Sort of how Magma Aqua, and Galactic (and Plasma in B2W2...where that's what they are practically)when you first meet them seem to look like common thieves. Maybe they could be based on an evil corperation? Pokémon did Peta in BW, why not Monsanto for XY?
