What if the Team Rocket-style organisation in the game is one that the protagonist can join and work their way up the ranks of?

I had a couple of pairings in mind:
Team Skull are the bazaar-dwelling copyright-infringing pirates.
Team Ark are conservationists who prioritise nurturing and studying TXMN over the political issues.

Or,
Team Art and Team Science. One tries to use TXMN to advance humankind culturally and spiritually, while the other is obsessed with using TXMN for technological advancement.

In either case, they would sometimes clash and sometimes collaborate, and they'd both be typically opposed to the Cathedral - although they may form temporary alliances with the Cathedral to serve their own ends.

*bump*

Sounds interesting, this might give some small alternate paths for the story to progess...

(sry I saw this post just now .-.)

We'll meet again, don't know where, don't know when. But I know we'll meet again some sunny day!

I just wanted to give this a bump because in Pokemon Sun & Moon, there's a "Team Skull" - although they're street thugs rather than pirates - and there's an organisation called the Aether Foundation focused on conservation! Great minds think alike smile

Here are some other ideas for teams that I've had - either villainous, or ones the player can join. Obviously not for this game, but if we go on to make others in the future (or just because it's fun to talk and think about)

Team Abyss and Team Fundament
Team Rescue - believe that Pokemon should be liberated, so they fight you themselves - as martial artists, archers, psychics and magicians, with tanks and mecha, etc.
Team Myth - worship Tuxemon as spirits and gods, a cult. Where the world doesn't fit the legends they were taught, they try to re-make it so that it does.
Team Crypt - want to open up the gates to the underworld and bring back the dead.
Team Net - control the internet and electricity. Can track you when you use electronic devices. Want to infect everything with a variety of viruses that they have at their disposal.
Team League - the best trainers and champions use their power to run the world, under the guise of organising a big tournament.
Team Aegis - attempt to protect the world from a monstrous tuxemon, but they go too far
Team Moonshot - trying to reach a new planet with whole new TXMN
Team Crown and Team Guillotine - bring back or depose the monarchy
Team Carnival - carnies with magical tricks and powers
Team Fossil - historical re-enactors, think everything was better in the past, want to bring back dead tuxemon
Team Chimera - once upon a time, tuxemon and humans were one and the same. We should live as tuxemon do, and tuxemon should live as we do (could put their tuxemon in uncomfortable clothes, be governed by a genius tuxemon, etc)
Team Portal - trying to connect this world with its shadow. In its shadow, the people are Tuxemon and the Tuxemon are people!
Team Scout - teach self-reliance, teamwork, service, preparedness. Give badges for achievements, not gym-beating.
Team Mongoose and Team Viper - warring street gangs trying to steal tuxemon and money; old-fashioned villains

With regards to Team Portal, the idea is that strange tuxemon would show up that resembled humans.

Then we'd find a portal to another world, where those strange tuxemon are common, but where the people resemble tuxemon from the original world.

What you would do is make a bunch of tuxemon gajinka, like Pokemon gajinka (1 and 2)

If Pokemon has a team called Team Skull, then we probably ought to rename ours; otherwise, Nintendo will have a heart attack and try to kill this project. (But yes, I agree you have a great mind tongue)

As far as the teams, I'm not sure where I stand. Some are pretty cool ideas (and some are a little weird big_smile). I think they would work good as side goals, or in mod games, but I don't know how well they would work in the main game.
