Courtney (Japanese: カガリ Kagari) is one of the Magma Admins of Team Magma in the Generation III games.

In the games

In Pokémon Sapphire and Pokémon Emerald, she makes only one cameo, at Seafloor Cavern, alongside Maxie and Tabitha. She does not have an active role in the storyline and cannot be battled.

In Pokémon Ruby, the player confronts her twice: the first time she raids the Weather Institute to steal a Castform and then she assists Maxie at the Seafloor Cavern. Aqua Admin Shelly fulfills the role that Courtney has in Ruby.

Pokémon Ruby

First battle

Second battle


Weather Institute

  • Before battle
"Ahahahaha! You're going to meddle in Team Magma's affairs? You're either absolutely fearless, simply ignorant, or both! You're so cute, you're disgusting! I'll put you down, kiddy!"
  • When defeated
"Ahahahaha! You're disgustingly strong!"
  • After being defeated
"Ahahahaha! We got meddled with unexpectedly! We're out of options. We'll have to pull out. But this isn't the last you'll see of Team Magma! We have other plans! Don't you forget it!"

Seafloor Cavern

  • Before battle
"Ahahahaha! How did you manage to get here without a submarine? What an impressive child! But... It won't do to have you meddling about here. And, I do want payback for what happened at the Weather Institute... I'm going to give you a little taste of pain! Resign yourself to it!"
  • When defeated
"Ahahahaha! Ouch!"
  • After being defeated
"Ahahahaha! You're so darn strong. It's terribly disappointing that you're not a Team Magma member. You could have enjoyed the fabulous world our Boss has promised to one of our own..."

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Courtney, known as Marge in the Chuang Yi translation, is one of the Three Fires, Admins of Team Magma - along with Tabitha and Mack. Like all of the Three Fires, Courtney has a special lighter that can transmit and record images by burning them on paper. In addition to her lighter, her gloves usually contain mixture of certain Berry juices that carries different properties, including spicy (volume 16), cohesive (volume 18) and corrosive (volume 20). Courtney's specialty is direct Fire-type attacks.

Courtney inviting Ruby to join Team Magma

She first appears in VS. Plusle & Minun II, when Ruby and Sapphire were traveling along Route 107 and encountered Courtney and Tabitha. The two Magma Admins were trying to steal a deep sea scanner from the wreckage of the Abandoned Ship. In VS. Loudred & Exploud II, Courtney attacked Rusturf Tunnel, looking for the Red Orb. She encountered Ruby again there, and offered the boy a position on Team Magma. Ruby refused and was able to defeat Courtney, leaving her badly burned. Later, when the Three Fires took off with three Gym Leaders to face off in battle, Courtney's opponent was Roxanne.

Courtney's normal life

In The Final Showdown I, when Ruby went alone to defeat Groudon and Kyogre with the Red and Blue Orbs, Courtney joins forces with him. After saving him from both Groudon and Kyogre, she was snatched into the Cave of Origin by Archie's Tentacruel. She managed to pass him her lighter with her bubblegum and a mixture of Berry juice. On the lighter was information about Ruby's own father Norman, and an admission that she had wanted to be friends with Ruby ever since they met at Rusturf Tunnel. It is revealed through a flashback that when she was younger, Courtney was friends with Daisy Oak and participated in Pokémon Contests.

Courtney was killed when the Cave of Origin collapsed on her but was later brought back to life by Celebi. She is last seen cultivating Berries as she did when she was younger.
