On the topic of different divisions, I find it particularly odd that the Aether Foundation has multiple branches/divisions, but we have no indication of how many there are or what any one branch does.
So far we have employees in predictable white outfits and Faba, who is the chief of one of the branches. Wicke is an assistant branch chief, and for sake of brevity in character variety she's probably Faba's assistant, but that might not necessarily be true.
There's definitely room for the idea of divisions/branches, seeing as at least one division would aim to stop Team Skull and other criminals, while I'm sure at least one other division would focus on researching the Ultra Beasts. If it is true that it's not the entire foundation but rather a given division that becomes evil, it would probably be the latter one. A third division might just bring in Pokémon that need "extra protection," as Wicke states.
...I'm curious- if Team Skull used to be part of the Aether Foundation as some of you guys are speculating, then what jobs would they have been doing?
(Also, because I'm crazy about translating any Japanese that I can read, the picture on the previous page looks like the girl is saying something like, "Welcome! [to] gift shop 'Ball Shop 1'".)
