** N and Ghetsis say it themselves: in the first BW game, they are not trying to force people to release their pokemon, but rather trying to 'change the world'. Most people in Unova know of the legendary dragon that accompanied the hero, so the wielder of the legendary who has also beaten the champion WILL be taken seriously regarding the matter of pokemon. Team Plasma's traditional appearance is also to take advantage of the Unovan hero lore. They wanted the public to view N as the second coming of the ancient king and hero. They were going to influence the general public and make a world where keeping pokemon was viewed as wrong. You can actually see the difference in people's reactions to the two times Ghetsis appeared in public and made a speech about pokemon liberation. In Accumula town people dismissed the idea quickly, but after N acquired the dragon, the Opelucid crowd was much more receptive to what Ghetsis said.

** Well, if it was ''underground'', presumably it would be harder to notice. They weren't exactly building it right behind the league where people would actually see it. How in the world they manage to figure out a way to get it to come up like that without people noticing something was up beforehand is a good question, though.

** Maybe people thought that Team Plasma would release their Pokémon, too, or... Team Plasma somehow managed to convince people that they were the only ones doing it "right." A necessary evil type of situation, maybe?

*** That's exactly the point of the move: to force slower Pokemon to move first, including those using decreased priority moves. If any move seems like it works for the sole purpose of benefiting your opponent or is otherwise useless in a single or rotation battle, chances are that it was intended for use in double and triple battles. The same goes for many moves that you wouldn't be able to use consistently, such as Snatch (which can be used by one of your Pokemon to steal the effects of one of your other Pokemon's moves). Quash is almost useless without Trick Room, though. It forces the opponent to go last, but it has no increased Priority and most of the Pokemon that gain the move are slow. Even worse is the fact that, unlike After You, the number of things able to learn it didn't increase in B2W2.

* In Hiun/Castelia City, there's streets where there are lots of people busily running back and forth. But when you get to the Central Plaza, there's barely any people there. What happened to them?

***** You guys are missing the obvious, Samurott also has a high Attack stat, so his ability to use weapons just make sense. Consider that there a many cases in video games, and other media for that matter, where a character is very skilled in both physical attacks and magical attacks (special attacks in this case).

** Its mustache is just that sexy?
*** It's the new MemeticSexGod of Pokemon.
**** Actually, it's probably because Cryogonal is partially based on a giant mirror. There are a couple of moves that don't make sense for it to have--Flash Cannon and Solar Beam--until you realize that those attacks are light-based and mirrors reflect light. So the reason why it learns Attract... is because ''it's reflecting its opponent, trying to make its opponent fall in love with its own image!''

* How exactly did team plasma expect people to listen to them? Their goal is to convince people to give up their Pokemon so they're the only ones with Pokemon, fair enough, but ''they're using Pokemon themselves'' and not in secret either. They're out there in the open going against the thing they supposedly stand for. Would you listen to someone who told you to stop eating ice-cream if they were eating an ice cream themselves at that moment?

** This is kind of stretching it, but I always thought of it as the castle being ancient ruins from a long forgotten civilization, and anything to suggest a more recent building point is actually Team Plasma discovering and refurbishing it as a base of sorts. (I haven't played the games in a while but I remember a mechanic in the game where you actually explore ruins underwater to collect treasure. Maybe it's related?)

* N's Castle. ''How in the name of Arceus'' did they put that thing [[ElaborateUndergroundBase underground]], right behind the freaking Pokémon League without anyone noticing?

*** [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything The Dev Team Didn't Think Of Everything]].
*** No, because they DON'T levitate; [[FridgeBrilliance they fly.]] If there was some "Flapping Wing" ability that was functionally the same, they probably would have got it. But there isn't.
