Cyrus is dead.
Cyrus is dead.
Giovanni because he looks cooler, is a mob gang guy and because he resurrects legendary Pokemon. Cyrus is just weird, he has a weird motive and not to mention, weird hair.
Giovanni would win if this was coolness.
But Cyrus is a prick who doesn't tell his agents they're basically fighting for their deaths and more or less wants to destroy the world. Destroying the world is a lot more evil than ruling it.
I think Cyrus is a better villain, because he stays true to his word, and remains a villain throughout the plot of the story, unlike Giovanni, who disbands Team Rocket.
Cyrus gets my vote, I mean, look at him.
Emotionless, cruel, selfish and whatnot. Look at Giovanni, sure he's the big bad boss of Team Rocket, but well, I find that guy to be kinda sporting.
Cyrus actually wanted to destroy everything and recreate everything with him as god amirite? And his own team doesn't even know what he is planning.
How evil is that? But anyways, I gotta thank Cyrus for the Master Ball.
Noobie here. Sigh...
Giovanni wins because he started Team Rocket. THE Team Rocket. While Giovanni may have given up, his legacy will live on forever, and that's why he is the better villain in the end
That's a good point, Karpi. Team Rocket was still doing crimes long after Giovanni was gone. We don't really see any of that with Team Galactic. Though, it could be interesting to see a Platinum sequel that shows what happens to Cyrus after he failed to control Palkia and Dialga. I always thought he'd go for the next step up: Arceus.
Anyways, great discussion, guys. The poll is looking a lot closer than I was expecting!
Cyrus. Giovanni never really seemed that big of a villian to me. More like some real world mob boss.

Anyway, while Cyrus's *actions* are more evil, Giovanni's *motive* is more evil. So I'd say it's a matter of how strongly you think intent matters in what someone does. Cyrus did terrible, wicked things in order to create a peaceful world free from suffering. Giovanni was basically a petty crook at best, but did it entirely for his own self-aggranzement and greed.
Plus let's face it. Cyrus isn't sane at all and seems to have a distorted idea of how the world works. Giovanni is perfectly sane, entirely stable, and does it anyway. Cyrus would benefit from a heavy course of antipsychotics, while Giovanni doesn't have any such excuse.
Cyrus by far.
I don't know why, but he is my favorite team boss.
Why did I vote Giovanni?! Cyrus is much more evil. Though I personally prefer Giovanni more...
Cyrus gets my vote in everything. D: In Evilness and Sexiness. I know it's not healthy to think a psychopath is good-looking, but whatever man. 8D; Fangirls will never make sense.
Plus, plus, Cyrus had the most evilish death glare in the opening of Platinum! That was my first look at Cyrus when I first booted up Platinum. D8 Giovanni can't compare to THAT.
Yes, Giovanni is clearly the better leader. He can't even get his own team to stop their evil deeds, even when he's had enough. 8D Plus his admins were totally NOT pathetic in GSC/HGSS. Oh, and his son Silver is a model child for icing in the cake.Originally Posted by Karpi
He must be so proud.

Signature is a WIP for the moment.
For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.
Cyrus is made of pure awesome. He tried to make a universe without spirit and be a god in said universe.
