Team Magma (Japanese: マグマ団 Magma-dan, literally Magma Gang) is a villainous team from Hoenn. They were founded by Maxie.


Xenial Destiny

Ruby & Sapphire

Team Magma first appeared in Magma Meeting in Meteor Falls! when Maxie and several Grunts turned up at Meteor Falls to oversee what Team Aqua's plans were. They reveal themselves both to Team Aqua and Lexi and her friends, announcing themselves as rivals of Team Aqua.

Primal Clash

Team Magma didn't appear again until The Two Jewels!, when Maxie meets with Team Aqua's Leader Archie. Archie gives Maxie false intelligence about the Legendary Pokémon and hands over a fake Red Orb, deciding to call a truce on attacking one another in order to complete their own goals uninterrupted by one another. Maxie is aware that it's a ruse by Team Aqua to get them off of their backs. Maxie goes along with it, privately working on their plans.

Courtney ambushes Team Aqua's Shelly for the Red Orb in An Aqua Expedition!, revealing that Team Magma knew Archie had tricked Maxie with the truce and a fake Orb to placate them, and that they just allowed Team Aqua to clear the way for them to awaken Groudon. Courtney then heads to another area in Seafloor Cavern where Maxie was waiting for the Red Orb to be delivered to complete their plans.

Team Magma wait and allow Team Aqua to awaken Kyogre, as Maxie has definite doubts that Archie would be able to control Kyogre and will have to turn for help from others to calm it down. He was correct, and so Maxie awoke Groudon. However just like Archie, he found out that he could not control Groudon and instead watched Groudon escape and head to fight against Kyogre.

In Xenial Destiny: Apocalypse: Kyogre vs. Groudon, Team Magma battle against Team Aqua and Kyogre, trying to stop Kyogre's attacks on Groudon and Hoenn. Once Rayquaza stops the quarreling between Groudon and Kyogre, both Team Magma and Team Aqua are disbanded by their Leaders and both men are arrested.

Tabitha • Courtney
  • Maxie is the leader of Team Magma, the team seeking a world ideal for humanity. He pays attention to even the smallest of details, and is quite sensitive in some regards. He has a habit of describing situations in numerical terms. He possesses a cool-headed outlook, thinking that some sacrifices cannot be avoided if he is to achieve his goals. He is also a Mega Evolution user, and he wears a pair of Mega Glasses, set with a mysterious Key Stone needed to Mega Evolve his Pokémon.
  • Tabitha is one of two Team Aqua Administrators. He normally has a benign expression on his face, but when he gets worked up, his eyes become shrewd and his gaze is as sharp as a knife. His natural inclination to be helpful has apparently made him very popular with the Grunts. There are rumors that he has his sights set on becoming the leader of Team Magma.
  • Courtney is one of two Team Aqua Administrators and a former scientist. She is known to have a brilliant mind, and she adores Maxie. She does not speak often, and shows little interest in much of what goes on around her—or even her own situation. Her personality is such that once her interest in someone or something is awakened, she will pursue it tirelessly. As you stand in Team Magma's way time and again, she begins to take an interest in you...
