Aqua Boss Archie

Archie appeared in two episodes of the anime. His Japanese voice actor is Aizawa Masaki 相沢正輝, and his English voice actor is Sean Schemmel.

AG097 - Gaining Groudon

The kids are floating on logs at sea when a red submarine appears beneath them, belonging to Team Magma. At the floating Magma base, the kids are taken into custody. Team Magma Leader Maxie explains to them about how he has the Blue Orb in his possession, allowing him to control Groudon. Unfortunately, the Legendary Pokémon they currently have in their possession is Kyogre.

A disguised Shelly of Team Aqua sneaks away and unlocks Kyogre, setting off an alarm. Kyogre awakens and busts out of the floating base, causing it to begin sinking. In the chaos, the kids try to grab the orb, and Pikachu accidentally absorbs it and goes berserk.

Ash is separated from his friends and attacked by a Team Magma member. He meets what appears to be another member of Team Magma - but it's really Lance of the Elite Four in disguise! Lance has also sent his red Gyarados to go help Ash's friends.

Both Teams Magma and Aqua end up on Monsu Island, along with Team Rocket, who wants to steal both Legendary Pokémon. Of course, it's no good, as Kyogre is under the control of the Red Orb, which is currently in Team Aqua's possession...

AG098 - The Scuffle of Legends

Team Magma and Team Aqua continue to fight on Monsu Island. The Red Orb, which can control Kyogre, is currently held by the Team Aqua Leader Archie. Archie merges with the orb and now crazed as a result, orders Kyogre to sink the island.

Everyone tries to flee into the ruins on the island, while Lance challenges Kyogre with his Dragonite. Dragonite's Hyper Beam is not strong enough to stop the ancient Pokémon.

Team Rocket still wants to steal Groudon, restrained inside the Team Aqua base. Instead, they are attacked by a possessed Pikachu, who awakens Groudon. The giant Ground-type leaves the base and begins a massive battle with Kyogre, but the two are evenly matched.

The kids find a way to distract Kyogre, which gives Groudon the opportunity to defeat the Water-type. The orbs leave the bodies of Archie and Pikachu, floating up in the air until they merge and then disintegrate. Archie and Pikachu both come back to their senses, while the two Legendary Pokémon retreat back into their ancient slumber.

In the games

Archie is the head of Team Aqua. In Pokémon Sapphire he first appears in the Oceanic Museum in Slateport City, trying to steal the Devon Goods from Captain Stern.

Later, Team Aqua members steal a meteorite from Professor Cozmo and try to turn Mt. Chimney into a lake.

In Pokémon Emerald, he also appears in the Oceanic Museum in Slateport City as the player delivers the Devon Goods to Captain Stern.

Later, he and the team Aqua members turn up in Slateport again as Captain Stern announces a discovery he has made about a seafloor cavern. Team Aqua promptly steals the Submarine Explorer 1 that Captain Stern has built and goes for the Seafloor Cavern to awaken Kyogre.

In the Pokémon Special manga

In the Pokémon Special manga, Archie is one of the devious villains of Hoenn. His identity is a secret, and he works as the head of Hoenn TV, which made him the boss of Gabby & Ty.Using his position as the master of the region's media, Archie was able to cover up Team Aqua's actions and air anti-Team Magma propaganda.

He ensures that Team Aqua's missions are carried out in top secret, and eliminates any evidence of their attacks. The only major feat they have accomplished is stealing the prototype engine for the Submarine Explorer 1; however, this was the only thing really essential to their plans. When Maxie obtained the Blue Orb, Shizuku's Volbeat stole it from them and gave it to him.

After Rayquaza interrupted the battle between Groudon and Kyogre, Archie and Maxie went insane and attempted to destroy those who interferred with their plans. Archie used his Tentacruel to pull Courtney into the Cave Of Origin, suffocate Ruby and hold Winona hostage when Wallace tried to save Ruby. Archie stomped on Ruby's Feebas, Mimi and mocked it for being weak and ugly.
