He was going to teach it to Sidious after he totally achieves it, but got killed before that.

It was said (everywhere) that Sidious felt he learned all he could from his Master. Hence he was useless to him. Hence why he killed him.

Later he admitted he didn't, especially something called cheat death, I believe that's either bring back the dead or keep the body from aging.

There wouldn't be any need though if one is immortal. Plagueis could have lied to Sidious for all we know and to me that makes the most sense, I have never heard of one with the ability to gain power wanting to share it.

It's been real but the game just wasn't worth the sub for me anymore.

That's what he thought.

Immortal does not mean you cannot be killed, just able to live forever, he was going to teach Sidious the ability to bring back the dead so they can keep each other alive.

That sounds reasonable, I just can't help but wonder why he would choose someone so sadistic like Palpatine as his apprentice in that case.

My guess is he sensed Palpatine's immense potential & thought he was worthy. Was also thinking he still wouldn't rival his own power. He turned out to be wrong.

Because he thought let a human to lead the Empire and he stayed behind to control would be better. Unlike many other Sith, he knew he could not do everything by himself even with immense power.

I mean in terms of the I keep you alive, you keep me alive. Palpatine was insane even growing up, I wouldn't want to trust him with my life.

That's the flaw of almost all Sith, overconfidence.
