Maxie (Japanese: マツブサ Matsubusa) is the head of Team Magma. He is the only character in the games to have the Trainer class Magma Leader (Japanese: マグマだんリーダー Team Magma Leader).

In the games

Maxie is the head of Team Magma. In Pokémon Sapphire Maxie helps the player against Team Aqua. He doesn't have an active role in the storyline and can't be battled.

In Pokémon Ruby he first appears in the Oceanic Museum in Slateport City, trying to steal the Devon Goods from Captain Stern. Later, Team Magma members steal a meteorite from Professor Cozmo in Meteor Falls, and try to dry Mt. Chimney's lava pool. Then, after Courtney raids the Weather Institute, Maxie steals the Blue Orb from Mt. Pyre. Later, he and the Team Magma members turn up in Slateport again as Captain Stern announces a discovery he has made about a seafloor cavern. Team Magma promptly steals the Submarine Explorer 1 that Captain Stern has built and goes for the Seafloor Cavern to awaken Groudon.

In Pokémon Emerald Maxie tries again to dry Mt. Chimney's lava pool via the meteorite from Meteor Falls, but this time he is looking for Groudon inside the volcano. After this first, unsuccessfully attempt, Maxie sends Team Magma members to make a new, secret hideout inside the volcano, where he finally awakens Groudon using the Blue Orb stolen at Mt. Pyre. However he loses the control over the legendary Pokémon. Later Team Magma raids the Mossdeep Space Center, trying to use the rocket fuel to make Mt. Chimney explode. The protagonist comes just in time to stop him, but as Tabitha is teaming up with Maxie, Steven is forced to team up with the player to stop Team Magma.


In the games he appears in, Maxie battles with the following Pokémon:

Maxie and the Blue Orb.

Maxie appeared in two episodes of the Pokémon anime.

Maxie appeared in Gaining Groudon and The Scuffle of Legends. Maxie's goal was to expand the land of Hoenn believing that if so, the land would be peaceful. But at the end of the latter episode, Maxie realized the errors of his ways and finally changed his beliefs, now believing that the land of Hoenn is supposed to be kept as is.

In the Pokémon Special manga

Maxie does not have any fixed headquarters and moves his locations from cave to cave across Hoenn. He rules Team Magma like a barbarian gang but he makes them more elusive; because of this, Team Magma was able to steal the Scanner from the Abandoned Ship and both Red Orb and Blue Orb. However, the latter was stolen by Amber's Volbeat for Archie.

After Rayquaza halted the fight between Groudon and Kyogre, Maxie and Archie went insane and attempted to destroy everyone who had interfered in their plan: the Elite Four, the Gym Leaders, the Regis, even their own members. It was Maxie's Houndoom that burned Norman with its flames.

Archie later indicated that Maxie died due to the Red Orb burning out his body and causing him to crumble into dust.


The following are Maxie's Pokémon in the Pokémon Special manga.

In the TCG

With Team Magma playing a large role in the EX Team Magma vs Team Aqua set, it's no surprise Maxie has his own card in that set.
