I love Team Skull♡♡
Can I emphasize how much I love Team Skull-??
They have so much characterization and in depth personality, more than any other crime gang in the other games-
Like, just to list a few things-
1) A lot of the grunts exclude Gladion from the team. But when you first meet Plumeria, apparently it’s GLADION who went and told her about you. She then states how she hates that you’re messing with her cute, dumb siblings. Gladion literally went and told on you to Plumeria, and momma bear came rushing over just to show you not to mess with her baby brothers and sisters.
Best part? You beat her, she let’s you off with a warning, and leaves. She literally came over just to teach you a lesson. Not to steal your pokemon. Not to take your money. Not anything evil. Nothing like that. Nada.
2) Guzma was most likely abused by his father, or had a strained relationship with his father. BUT LOOK AT HIM TAKE CARE OF HIS FAMILY-
He could’ve easily turned out just like his father, but he didn’t. And I like to think if Plumeria is like a big sister to the underlings, Guzma is like the big brother-
3) The grunts are so relatable and down to Earth. They have low self-esteem. They feel ignored and shunned a lot. This is painfully relatable, gives them human traits that make them likeable, and I LOVE them-
ALSO! I love how everyone in Alola state that they’re more like troublemakers than actual evil crime gang members- It’s cute and I love it- ALSO THEIR THEME MUSIC IS SO NICE!
BUT, ON THE FLIP SIDE:
Can I mention how the Aether Foundation CREEPS ME OUT. LIKE, I’M NOT CRAZY RIGHT. THEY’RE KINDA WEIRD. THEY SEEM NICE BUT ALSO SO FISHY. I FEEL UNSAFE. SEND HELP??
THEY ARE TOO NICE AND ALL OF MY EMOTIONS AND INSTINCTS ARE TELLING ME TO STAY AWAY FROM THEM??
