Well, any type of villains in pokémon stories, but I guess you can talk about villains in general as well.

Oh. o.o Well, I just wanted to interject that I like to use psychotic villains from time to time. :P Like, the real messed up ones. Like, he/she had something in his/her childhood that drove him/her to the brink of insanity, or something. o.o But yeah, when I make up a villain, I definitely think of his/her past first.

I'm like that too. With a good story, I always wonder what will happen next.

@Psychic Oats- I agree with that. Sometimes, the best villians are the ones who've been given a reason to be evil.

I see what you mean now. And yeah, villains like that are fun to write about too. =3

@Latias Rider - Yep, I think that's one of the best things about reading a story; wondering what's going to happen next and being surprised!

Sometimes they end up as real disasters, don't they?

But that doesn't really go with this topic...

I've never actually written Pokemon (never had a really good idea), but I do know how I like my villains: Completely evil (or ebil in the case of something adorable, ex. the totally ebil Whismur in a fic idea I had that I simply couldn't figure out how to write), dark and mysterious, well oiled backstory, and near godly powerful.

Completely Evil/Ebil

Yes, evil. The cornerstone of a villain. Driven by one of two goals: Domination or destruction. Take, for example, the main antagonist for the fic I'm currently writing (details not to be disclosed on genre, fandom, or the character itself. I will tell you that it's a sequel though, and starts immediately after the good guys uber-pwn the villain in the first one where I leave it off at the immense cliffy because I'm really that ebil (yes, I consider myself to be that adorable)). He's driven by the desire to dominate the galaxy, steal his former love from the good guys side, and when he finally croaks of old age as most people are wont to do, destroy the galaxy because no one else should ever be allowed to rule it, not even his own progeny. Now that, ladies and gentlemen, is evil.

Dark and Mysterious/Well Oiled Backstory

The villain's backstory must be completely shrowded in mystery up until a point late in the fic at which his true nature is revealed. At this point, we discover at least these three things: Why he's so evil, where he got his power, and how he can be defeated.

Near Godly Powerful

The villain must be near impossible to defeat, have many of the same powers as the main protagonist does twofold, and have access to thousands of evil minions who will eagerly do his bidding, most of which aren't a cakewalk.

And those are the three main parts to any Khajmer created villain.

Nice, EeveeKing, nice.

Almost a great villian you've got there. (PS. Check mine out!) =P

You could almost count that as a guide...almost...

Villains who run away can actually be a lot of fun to write about, because the protagonist can never seem to catch them. But yes, they do get annoying.

Apart from all the one's you've spoken of, I like villains who aren't even in the story till quite late. If anyone has read the Sally Lockhart series, you'll know what I mean. The villain is there, causing life to be hell for the protagonist, but no one knows that he/she is even there. Then finally, after grueling tasks to find out who this villain is, and where he/she can be found, the villain is easy to kill. One bullet to the chest. One push off a building. Almost an anti-climax, but Pullman does them so well, that I've developed a liking for them.
