It’s complicated but for the most part no: the Unova Corp are not evil but at least for the first half of the movie they’re an obstacle for the Guardians who were still considered criminals at this point. Although they’re more lawful neutral since they still have certain characters shown in a sympathetic light and the Guardians are at least in good-ish terms with them what with how they’re all pardoned by the end
