In the games

She is first seen leading the efforts of Team Galactic to control the Valley Windworks near Route 205. Mars is then seen at Lake Verity. She makes her final appearance (along with Jupiter) atop the Spear Pillar, in an attempt to slow down the player so Cyrus can awaken the legendary Pokémon, but as the player battles her and Jupiter, the rival assists him/her. In Pokémon Platinum she and Jupiter quit Team Galactic because Pluto has different ideals from former boss Cyrus.

In the manga

Pokémon Special

Mars made her first appearance (in silhouette) at the Valley Windworks. She was attempting to steal the power with her Electivire, and succeeded.

Interestingly, in the magazine version of the manga she used a Luxray. It was changed into an Electivire in the book version for unknown reason. One possible reason is that a different wild Luxray is a recurring Pokémon that aids the Sinnoh trainers.

In the TCG

Mars appears on the Team Galactic's Mars card from the Secret Wonders expansion.

Trivia

  • Mars's name was changed to Venus in Spanish-language versions of the game, likely due to the fact that Mars is the name of a male Roman god. This also happened to Jupiter.
  • Mars thinks Lucas and Dawn are a couple.
  • Mars is the Commander the player will battle the most times in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum. The player will battle Saturn twice in each game, Jupiter twice in Diamond and Pearl but three times in Platinum, while Mars is battled three times in Diamond and Pearl and four times in Platinum, although it should be noted one of Jupiter and Mars's battles are together in a double battle.
