It's pretty much a guarantee honestly. Every single game has had an evil team be the driving force of the story outside of beating the eight gyms. I wouldn't mind having a shift away to that something totally different, but I don't think a lack of information about them says that there isn't one.

    Maybe GF will release them closer to release to make it easier on those who are trying to not spoil themselves (I'm not really one of them btw). As it's like a giant cookie for fans, and hard to resist.

    Unless they make us aware of the name of the evil corporation, their members etc but keep their motive a secret for us to figure out in-game.

      I like it how in BW plasma take over the Pokemon league instead of the usual plot defeat gym leader defeat evil team then defeat elite four, that's why I like BW more than BW2, I hope they make something new this time.

      Which I'd rather actually prefer that'd they would continue doing with this game. I like having very small information about the plot itself. Maybe they can show their design for the grunts, but other than that I wouldn't want to see the leader of the team or want to know what their motives were ahead of time. It's way more fun to discover it in-game.

      Has anyone else thought about the XYZ
      affair
      for a possible inspiration for the evil team (or if not the team, the plot)? I know it's fairly obscure but it does have some interesting similarities to X&Y considering that the affair was a conflict between the United States (Unova) and France (Kalos), and the obvious similarity of the names of the conflict and the games. I'm not extremely informed about the details about the XYZ affair but there may be something there that could be a source of inspiration for the plot of the games and the evil team of Kalos. Anyways, I thought it would be interesting to discuss this obscure similarity between the games and a small conflict in the history between the US and France.

        The XYZ Affair was the first thing that came to my head actually, but I never thought of the evil team being apart of that... I'm not sure if there is much substance there, but maybe they could stretch it out to cover a team.

          aftaer a quick google search, I'd say maybe not, the XYZ affair is a bit too political, especially for Pokemon.

            I have some options in my mind.
            Team Ragnarok:The only advanced city is apparently Lumiose.Team Ragnarok wants the world to return to a medival style and wants to use the legendaries for that.
            Another Edition:They want to catch the legendaries that affect the seasons(Maybe the trio of this gen?)to mess up the world
            Their emblem will be a wolf's head with a viking helmet

            Team ???:Wants the Legendaries' DNA in order to reinforce their pokemon so they can rule the world.

            Pokemon they will use:Gogoat/Gogoat evo and if the fairy type is true some sort of Vaniresque pokemon.

              I think it would be cool if Odin, Loki, Thor (With name alterations, but where its still obvious) played a part in this... With Loki betraying them, even though this would be obvious to people who know the Gods...

              Also here is my copypasta from the general speculation thread since it is relevant:

                There are a lot of things pointing at norse mythology in X and Y.

                Considering this, perhaps the team could be known as "Team Ragnarok?"

                  Another Team would be just very typical & maybe boring if they're not badass enough...
                  How about the "Team" turns everyone into zombies then it's my role to stop them AND find a cure? (that would be awesome yet not acceptable considering this is -kind of- a kids' game)
                  LOL playing Silent Hill sure screws one's mind a lot...

                  Haha this would definitely be something else xD

                  The evil team usually wants to capture the Legendary Mascot to rule over the world,
                  so im guessing this time will be pretty much the same.

                  This, more or less. I doubt that evil Pokemon teams would be that sophisticated, really. .__.;

                  Which is a shame honestly, there is a lot they could do with this theme honestly, but I doubt they'd want to get too deep, as the main audience is kids. They wouldn't really have much knowledge on it, or really look that deep into it. Of course, it would be the same if they left it simple, so going for something that the older fan base could dig into would be awesome.

                  I honestly think that argument is only going to hold so much water for so long. Assuming that the evil team has something to do with genetics (for speculation's sake, let's go with that), then how are kids going to grasp that? When I first played Pokemon, all the science I know was just learning the periodic table or learning about the animals, something like that. .___.;; Genetics is a fair deep subject to get into.

                  /probably worded this badly. Hope it makes sense.

                  It's very true that genetics itself is a deep subject, but so are space and time. Pokémon is pretty good at taking complex ideas and simplifying them so that the player base of the games can understand the story and what is trying to be accomplished. I mean, if it their focus is genetics, they could be pretty basic and just say they're gaining control of the mascot Pokémon to change their DNA to make super Pokémon. On the theme and still super basic.
