Team Aqua (Japanese: アクア団 Aqua-Dan, Italian: Team Idro, Spanish: Equipo Agua) is one of the villainous teams to be found in Hoenn. They intend to raise the level of the oceans by using the power of Kyogre. Team Aqua's leader is Archie and their rival organization is Team Magma. The uniform is a gray and white shirt, blue jeans with white circles, black gloves and a blue scarf with the Team Aqua's symbol on it, the grunts in the manga also wear a jacket.

- Leader - In the case of Team Aqua, Archie.
Their Pokémon include Carvanha for Grunts, Sharpedo, Golbat, Mightyena, and Poochyena; in general, they use a mix of Flying-, Poison-, and Water-types.
