These guys are the bad guys from all of the previous Pokemon games, right?
But in Pokemon GO, the only teams are…
There’s no way that they could be the bad guys, right? GO players are on those teams! But it is true that Willow does bear a striking resemblance to the Team Boss of Sun and Moon…
Nah… that’s silly.
BUT…if you think about GO… the point is to capture as many Pokemon as possible, and send many of them to the Professor… and once you send your Pokemon to the Professor, he pays you with candies, and there’s no way to get your Pokemon back.
…wait a minute.
The Pokemon Professor is paying people all over the world, each in their own neat little gangs, to gather as many of the rare wild creatures as possible for him to do who knows what with.
Which is right in line with Team behavior.
Willow is the Boss and GO players are the grunts.
Guzma isn’t a deranged Willow, he is FORMER WILLOW. Once the lead of Team Skull who scourged Alola.. now a huge crime boss who has employed the WORLD.
