Team Plasma, and specifically N, were the first villains in a pokemon game that actually made me reflect on pokemon. When the Nugget Bridge invited us to join Team Rocket in Kanto, sure many of us would actually consider it, but those who did could say it was explicitly because they wanted to join the "dark side." All they did was steal money and pokemon. But in Black/White, the villain's mission isn't (pardon the cliché) black and white, because they brought up and addressed points in which people today still criticize pokemon on.
In response to the OP, I think Colress should have been expanded on, but N was already one of the most expanded characters in
Black/White 1 and 2.
