I'd go for Aqua. Besides the fact that water pokemon kick *** I'd imagine there'd be other benefits too like:
1) More water = bigger tides, yes? Hence with more water we'd get more renewable energy from the tides
2) More water can absorb/dissolve more CO2 into the seas, reducing the amount of CO2 in the world overall and slowing down global warming
3) Things that are solid can conduct heat easier than gases or liquids. With an increased volume of water, the seas could absorb more solar heat and insulate the world better, once again slowing down global warming.
4) And of course, water would be more available over the world, helping to fight poverty and such
Those are all valid points, however my problem with Team Aqua is the fact that there kind of wouldn't be any mountains or trees or deserts or jungles or anything left after they, you know, flooded the world. Along with a number of other problems:
With the energy issue, to utilize the power of the tides we'd need power stations, which would be floating on the sea, which to me seems slightly hazardous. We'd also need some way to connect that power to every single person living in the ocean. Presuming Kyogre's flood didn't kill anyone (which is very, very unlikely), we're talking 6,000,000,000+ people sitting on the ocean, who need energy, sanitation, and food. On land, we've got power cables and the like, but on the sea we'd have to redo all of that, except underwater. Which would be exceedingly difficult.
And wow I'm kind of thinking too much into this.
I'd just like to point out here, for any team galactic supporters, that in DP they had brains floating in green slime in the deeper part of the GHQ bulding. Just lettin ya know...
I was going to be surprised at this, but then again, you know...Cyrus. =/

Galactic. Who'd care about a miserable little planet if you can rule an universe?
Fair point, fair point.

I'd join Team Rocket. So my boss wouldn't be batsh*t insane. And who needs to mess with the environment/universe when you could get MONEY
Haha, two very good points there. They don't really lend themselves to sanity, do they?
At one point, I would have answered Team Magma, because for years, I have been a Maxie fangirl...but now, I answer Team Galactic. First of all, because now I am also a Cyrus fangirl. Second of all, because they just have awesome commanders and plotlines. Third of all, the legendaries they are after are very powerful and I love Giratina. Plus, it would be awesome working with the insane Pluto. Just saying I love the crazy scientists.
Haha, I'm also a Maxie fangirl, but for me that's really more of a perk than a legitimate reason. I don't like pokemon abuse, I'm really not in the mood to drown any time soon, and Cyrus' new world doesn't really sound like all that much fun, to be honest, despite how attractive he may be.
