Team Magma (Japanese: マグマ団 Magma-Dan, Italian: Team Magma, Spanish: Equipo Magma) is one of the villainous teams to be found in Hoenn. Team Magma's goal is to raise and expand the landmasses of the world with the power of Groudon. The leader of Team Magma is Maxie. Their uniforms are a black shirt, black short pants for the guys and black skirt for the girls, with a short red jacket.

In the game

Team Magma appears in Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald, but they have the central history only in Ruby. Team Magma is made up of three different ranks.

  • Grunts - The lowest ranking members
  • Admins - High-level managers who oversee devious projects. There are only two on Team Magma.
  • Leader - In the case of Team Magma, Maxie.

Their Pokémon include Numel for Grunts, Camerupt, Golbat, Mightyena, and Poochyena; in general, they use a mix of Flying-, Poison-, and Fire-types.

In the anime

Team Magma only appears several times, searching for clues on the ancient Pokémon Groudon. Their leader, Maxie, never even touches a Poké Ball, much less control Groudon. While returning to base in a submarine, they acidentally pick up Ash and company, who are discovered by Maxie. In the anime, Team Magma functions as a complete organization,and respect is always shown.

There are many grunts and an admin, Tabitha. Brody's status is unknown; he may be an admin or a very experienced grunt.

Their Pokémon usually include Houndoom and Mightyena. Brody's team includes a Ditto.

In the manga

Team Magma is still consisted of three different ranks, just as the two above. Instead of admins, you have the FireHeads Trio, composed of three trainers with specialties relating to the use of fire. Hokage, Kagari and Homura. Their leader is Maxie (Matsubusa). In the manga, Team Magma is fairly unorganized, functioning in a rather 'barbaric' way. Basically, Maxie gives an order, and the three FireHeads can carry out the orders in any way they wish to. Unlike the anime, they show absolutely no respect towards their leader.

Their Pokémon include Camerupt, Numel, Slugma, Magcargo, Torkoal, and Ninetales.

In the TCG

The cards of Team Magma are in the Pokémon EX: Team Magma VS Team Aqua deck. The special ones are Maxie (who lets the player pick a Team Magma Pokémon from the deck), Team Magma Schemer, Team Magma Conspirator, Team Magma Hideout, Team Magma TM 01, Team Magma Belt and Magma Energy. Also the team has this Pokémon:
