The Galaxy Expedition Team (Japanese: ギンガ団 Ginga-dan, literally Galaxy Gang), or the Galaxy Team for short, is an organization based in the Hisui region. It is made up of people from other regions who have come to study Hisui. It consists of several corps that are all lead by Commander Kamado. The shortened form of the name, Galaxy Team, also serves as a Trainer class for Kamado and Beni when they are battled.
The Galaxy Team shares its Japanese, Italian, Spanish, and Chinese names with Team Galactic of the modern day. furthermore, the team's symbol is highly reminiscent of Team Galactic's logo. The relationship between both organizations, if any, is unknown.
In the core series games
Pokémon Legends: Arceus
At the very beginning of the game, the player character winds up on Prelude Beach, not knowing of the location they are in. They are awakened by the Survey Corps' Professor Laventon, who they help catch the Pokémon that he had lost, Rowlet, Cyndaquil, and Oshawott, and gets complimented on their skill on using the recently created Poké Ball. The professor brings them to the Galaxy Hall in Jubilife Village, introducing them to Cyllene, the head of the Galaxy Team's Survey Corps, who provides the player with shelter until they can pass the test in joining the Galaxy Team. Being instructed by either Rei or Akari, the player passes with flying colors, and is tasked to help in providing documentation on on Hisui's five divisions, starting with the Obsidian Fieldlands. The nights prior to the beginning of the game, a horrible disaster has begun, with lightning coming down from the space-time rift that rests atop of Mount Coronet, crashing into certain locations of Hisui. The player has fallen from this rift themselves, to which the town and the Galaxy Team lack trust in, and use them as a way to gain information on the situation related to the space-time distortions that may occur.
The Galaxy team is met with the Diamond and Pearl Clans, who has lived in Hisui prior to them. These clans have a history of arguments due to having different beliefs and ideologies in a god they have named "Almighty Sinnoh." Both clans have their leaders, Adaman and Irida, visit Jubilife Village to ask of the Galaxy Team for help. The lightning from the space-time rift that has appeared has fallen on all four of the Noble Pokémon, who the Diamond and Pearl clans care for, enraging the Pokémon and harming the land that they are known to care for. Commander Kamado, the Galaxy Team's own leader, tasks the player character in researching and quelling the raging Nobles, without taking part in either of the clans' personal affairs and avoiding any potential negative relationships with the Galaxy Team.
After the player has quelled all five of Hisui's Noble Pokémon, a disaster originating from Mount Coronet has caused the sky to turn red, and Kamado expels the player character from both Jubilife Village and the Galaxy Team to prevent further harm to the village. The Galaxy Team makes their way to Mount Coronet to settle the situation on their own, and defeat whatever lies beyond the space-time rift. The player follows them, after meeting with the three Lake guardians, defeating both Beni and Kamado in battle and gains the commander's trust again.
The Survey Corps (Japanese: 調査隊 Survey Team) is tasked with exploring the Hisui region and documenting its Pokémon. It has a rank system ranging from No Star for new recruits to Full Star (10 stars). Whether or not this system applies to the other corps is unknown. Akari and Rei use this trainer class when they are battled as NPCs.
The Security Corps (Japanese: 警備隊 Security Team) defends Jubilife Village. It also serves as a trainer class (under the name Security Corps') for members of the Corp such as Zisu and Wenton.
The Medical Corps (Japanese: 医療隊 Medical Team) treats wounded people and creates medicines.
The Supply Corps (Japanese: 製造隊 Manufacturing Team) is in charge of the logistics of Jubilife Village, maintaining the amount of materials necessary for the village.

The Agriculture Corps (Japanese: 畑作隊 Farming Team) grows crops for Jubilife Village and takes care of the Pastures.
Even though she does not wear the uniform, Marie is a villager managing the Pastures.
The Construction Corps (Japanese: 建築隊 Construction Team) are responsible for construction and setting up base camps.
Odo is also called a "fresh Construction Corps recruit", but he does not wear the uniform and is still called a villager in his mission.
- According to Kamado and Cyllene, the name "Galaxy Expedition Team" came about when Kamado described the intelligence of Cyllene and others in the team to its patrons by comparing them to shining stars. One of the patrons then told Kamado he had a "veritable galaxy" for a team, thus leading him to name it the Galaxy Expedition Team.
