| Team Flare|
Team Flare is the antagonistic team that appears in Pokémon X and Y. The group was founded by Lysandre in his hopes of creating a "beautiful world". They steal whatever resources and materials needed for their plan without remorse. Team Flare hopes to achieve their goal by reactivating the Ultimate Weapon, built centuries ago by AZ, to eiliminate all life except themselves to reduce the strain on the world's resources.
Following the sinking of the Ultimate Weapon, Team Flare is no more. Some of their former members can be found across Kalos, wondering what to do with their lives now that the "beautiful world" they envisioned can no longer be achieved.
- The female grunts have a near-similar hairstyle to Gauche from Tales of Vesperia.
- Team Flare's goal/view may have been inspired by the real world's own problems with overpopulation and the strain on the planet's limited resources.
- Elite Four member Malva was once a member.
- All but Lysandre primarily use Scraggy, Mightyena, Scrafty, Purrloin (who are Dark-types) and the occasional Poison-type Pokémon.
- Unlike previous "Team" henchmen, Flare grunts have their team sigil on a belt buckle, instead of on their shirts.
- The grunts always say they have to do something with style, perhaps mistaking the "Flare" in Team Flare for "Flair".
- Regarding the "Flare" in the group's name, it may refer to how fire destroys everything it touches; this would also refer to their plan to destroy most life on the planet.
- Two members disguised as a Garçon and a Waitress are battled in Lysandre Café.
