For some reason, I don't fully understand their intentions

What was Team Flare's true goal in the end? Was it to sell Pokemon, or to purge everyone (themselves not included)?

Why do your questions always have a -1? Is someone targeting you? – Robotnik Oct 18 '13 at 5:59
Team Flare's goal was to kill most humans and all Pokémon. Most humans, so making sure everyone's happy gets easier, all Pokémon to ensure noone abuses them for wars. At least, that's how I understood it. – Nolonar Oct 18 '13 at 9:12

Massive spoilers ahead. Feel free to read after beating Team Flare.

The goal was aquiring for them (Team Flare) all global resources. They want to do it by destroying the rest of pokemon and human world. They want to do that because they believe that there is too much pokemon and people and not enough resources to live happy together.

This Team Flare mindset was inspired by this (minor spoiler) problem...

I connect this with problem that there was in minds of people in Europe in late XVIII and early XIX centuries called Malthusian cathastrophe link to wiki provided.
