Who is your favourite evil team? The notorious Team Rocket who appears everywhere in HG/SS invading Radio Towers,small shops and dirty,old wells along with cutting off poor Slowpoke tails D:.

Or the ambitious Team Galactic, where Cyrus dearly wishes to control the Pokemon world with Giratina.

Maybe you dislike them both or you love both equally. Well who's your favourite xD?

I like both but I'm giving my love to Team Galactic, cause I love Jupiter and they were the first really refreshing team I faced in the games, if that makes any sense lol

I like Team Galactic because their goal was totally clear ever since they first appeared in the games. They were close to achieving it as well.

I voted Team Galactic cos their goal was clear and they almost achieved it.

Also, the grunts are hilarious.

I opted for Team Rocket, based on the fact that I felt their plans were more evil and 'bad' compared to Team Galactic's as I found their schemes to be more whimsical. Plus, Team Rocket were the first baddies I thrashed while playing through my journey in a Pokemon Game so there's also a bit of nostalgia there. In regards to their outfits/uniforms I definitely liked Team Rocket's over Team Galactic's. Mainly due to the fact that I found Team Rocket's unfiroms to really match their goals and their attitude to pokemon - being rough, cruel, sinister etc, while I found that although Team Galactic's also related to their plot (spacesuits), I couldn't take them seriously.

So in the end, Team Rocket stole the show for me.

Nostalgia inclines me to say Team Rocket - but let's be honest, they were never quite the threat that Team Galactic was. Cyrus was insane. Even more so? Those haircuts. I shudder.
Plus, Cyrus actually almost achieved his goal.

I voted for Team Rocket, I must admit, a part of it would be due to the fact it was the first evil team I knew about in Pokemon, but I just like Team Rockets style, although it was kind of annoying, in the games it seemed to be a constant battle after battle against Team Rocket. Plus I think Giovanni is pretty cool.

TEAM GALACTIC FTW. I love all the admins, especially Mars and her Ridiculously Fat Cat, and Cyrus is also the BEST evil team leader. LIKE SERIOUSLY. And plus, DAT HAIRCUTS. OMG. ANY TEAM WHOSE MEMBERS DRESS LIKE LADY GAGA EVERY DAY DESERVES SOME RECOGNITION. I really hope Cyrus shows up in a future game. Or Mars. She could've gotten lost or something. anyway, team galactic FTW, I have nothing against team rocket but team galactic is better. just my opinion.

Team Rocket! They're awesome, I just hate how they always lose. I guess since it's a kids show the 'bad guys' always end up losing. I always wished for a more mature/dark Pokemon anime series. Also, their dark uniforms looks awesome, a huge red 'R' centred on their shirt clearly establishes their name. Team Galactic's costumes and hair looks, well, ugly.

Rocket>>>

Galactic grunts seemed more dim-witted than all the others for some reason. Not to mention they looked like spacemen lol.

But isn't that the point? They're meant to look that way - their objective does relate to time and space.

Team Galactic, because I'm starting to get sick of Team Rocket, they seem just like a gang of thieves, while Team Galactic are actually doing mega evil things like trying to get Dialgia and Palkia and stuff. Sorry, that probably doesn't make any sense. Anyway I like Galactic.

Team Rocket! They're the original baddies. Galactic isnt really that great in my opinion.

My favorite is definitely Team Rocket (as you can see in my avatar xD)

I think they are the only Team who's actually evil (if you don't count Cipher and Team Snagem and Ghetsis' personal purpose), they are not trying to change the world for better according to their ideals. They actually represent a threat since they were reborn even with their Boss gone, not a BIG Global one (like flooding the world, etc), but still a threat. Also, they created Mewtwo! And finally, you can't go wrong with the mafia theme. Oh, and I also love their battle theme.

Team Galactic is my least favorite villanous team. Cyrus seems like a freak, even Cynthia said she thought they were just a bunch of weirdos at first. Their haircut doesn't help either xD. I like their plan though.

Team Galactic gets my votes here, folk. Yeah, the grunts might looked liked they might have dressed themselves in aluminum foil and wore wigs...But...Cyrus mane...He beats da crap outta Archer, he was a LAME final Team Rocket boss, seriously...and his pokemon were just a lame as him.

I liked what Cyrus was tryin' to achieve; to change the world in his imagine with legenda...wait, never mind...almost all the evil Teams in Pokemon try to do this...

Hmmm...Well, dey had kickass music. And Cyrus reminds me of a Batman villian...Most of Batman villians have emotional problems...and Cyrus' here is no exception. Yeauh! :p

Hard to decide.

Team Rocket has the nostalgic appeal, the less typical scheme of resurrection, and the better uniforms.

Team Galactic in Platinum has the better boss fights, the better megalomaniac, the funnier conversations, and the better climax. In D/P, not all of this is true.

I prefer each team for various reasons, really... so it's hard to pick one.
