ホカゲ Hokage
Gender Male
Hometown Unknown
Region Hoenn
Trainer class Magma Admin
Member of Team Magma
Rank Three Fires

Mack (Japanese: ホカゲ Hokage) is one of the Magma Admins of Team Magma in the Pokémon Adventures manga. He is a skilled illusionist, creating visions inside his victim's head using heat and smoke. He is, however, a little full of himself.


Mack is one of the Three Fires, Admins of Team Magma, along with Courtney and Tabitha.

Like all of the Three Fires, Mack has a special lighter that can transmit and record images by burning them on paper.

Mack's specialty is creating illusions with fire and heat. Usually, the heat is enough to wear his opponents down to the point where he can easily confuse and knock out their Pokémon. He is not a very good battler, and his Pokémon often lack the strength. His skills at illusion-making often makes up for his lack of strength, however.

Team Magma raided the Slateport City Contest House to capture Captain Stern, but accidentally got Ruby and the Pokémon Fanclub President, too. Mack tortured Captain Stern to get him to reveal how to complete Submarine Explorer 1. When this failed, he attacked Dock with his Slugma, forcing Stern to reveal the missing pieces of the submarine.

Ruby distracted Mack by luring his Slugma away with Pokéblocks. The two fought inside the submarine, where Mack's skills as an illusionist first come into play. Ruby managed to escape when his Mumu used Earthquake, endangering the submarine, Mack, and himself.

Mack's illusions totally incapacitated Tate and Liza on Mt. Pyre for most of the Hoenn saga, while at the same time, stealing the Red and Blue Orb off Mt. Pyre. When the Firehead Trio took off with three Gym Leaders to face off in battle, Mack's opponent was Brawly. It is unsure what happens to Mack after the battle.


This listing is of Mack's Pokémon in the Pokémon Adventures manga.

Slugma (×2)
Slugma (×2)
Slugma is Mack's main and reliable Pokémon. Mack ordered one of them to attack Dock when Captain Stern could not reveal anything about the submarine. However, Ruby was able to distract him by feeding the Slugma Indigo Pokéblocks. It was later used to incapacitate Tate and Liza with the help of Mack's skills as an illusionist. During the selection of the three Gym Leaders to battle, Slugma was used to battle Brawly. It has a Quiet nature.

Slugma's known moves are Flamethrower, Smog, and Acid Armor.
