Tabitha (Japanese: ホムラ Homura) is one of the Admins of Team Magma.

In the games

Tabitha plays a key role in the main story of Pokémon Ruby and its remake Pokémon Omega Ruby as an Admin of the main villainous team, Team Magma. He makes only minor appearances in the corresponding games Pokémon Sapphire and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, as Team Aqua are the main villains of these games.

In Pokémon Ruby, Tabitha steals the Meteorite from Professor Cozmo at Meteor Falls and brings it to Maxie at Mt. Chimney. At Mt. Chimney, the player has to battle him before battling Maxie and stopping his attempt to make the volcano erupt. Tabitha is next encountered at Slateport City, assisting Maxie in stealing the Submarine Explorer 1 in order to descend to Seafloor Cavern. He is later encountered again at the Magma Hideout outside Lilycove City, battling the player to buy time for the submarine to escape.

In Pokémon Emerald, Tabitha's role starts out the same way as in Ruby, with him stealing the Meteorite at Meteor Falls. However, now the second encounter with him happens at the new Magma Hideout inside Mt. Chimney, where the player must battle him in order to reach Maxie, who's in the process of awakening Groudon. After the player has defeated Tate and Liza, Team Magma invades the Mossdeep Space Center, intending to steal all of their rocket fuel and make Mt. Chimney erupt. The player teams up with Steven in a Multi Battle against Maxie and Tabitha, who will retreat after being defeated.

In Pokémon Omega Ruby, Tabitha is revealed to have previously worked for Devon Corporation, where he was nicknamed Tabitabi (Japanese: ホムホム Homuhomu), and that he helped Team Magma gain access to their research, thus assisting them in the creation of the Magma Suit. Tabitha initially performs the same role as in Pokémon Ruby; unlike in Ruby, however, he is battled by the player and May/Brendan in a Multi Battle at Meteor Falls. Also, after the events at Mt. Chimney, he is encountered at the Weather Institute, a role that was fulfilled by Courtney in Ruby. As Maxie prepares to awaken Groudon at Seafloor Cavern, Tabitha enters the Cavern to express his concern to Maxie about the weather conditions created by Groudon. After Groudon's awakening, Tabitha and his boss head to Sootopolis City, where they will hand the player the Magma Suit.

During the Delta Episode, Tabitha is encountered at the Team Magma Hideout when Zinnia defeats Maxie and takes his Key Stone. Tabitha then begrudgingly gives a Cameruptite to the player upon Maxie's instructions, as Maxie can no longer use it to make his Camerupt Mega Evolve. After the events of the Delta Episode, Tabitha is seen observing a conversation between Maxie and Courtney at the Team Magma Hideout, with Maxie apologizing his subordinates for his actions.

In Omega Ruby, Tabitha is popular with Team Magma Grunts because of his helpfulness. Rumors suggest he aims to succeed or replace Maxie as the head of Team Magma.[1]

Tabitha's only appearance in Pokémon Alpha Sapphire happens during the player's initial visit to the Battle Resort, where he and Courtney are bumped into by Wally, much to their irritation.

Tabitha also appears in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Special Demo Version, where he can be faced in a Multi Battle along with Aqua Admin Matt.

"Hyuh? What have we here? Why has this child suddenly appeared?"
"Ahyahyahya! Isn't this amusing?! Is it really your intention to oppose me, a Team Magma Admin, just the two of you? Mmm... Very well then! I'll show you how terrifying adults can be! Ahyahyahya! I'm going to give you some very thorough coaching!"
  • When defeated
  • After being defeated
"Hyuhn?! An unexpected development?!"
"You children! I would like you to stay out of my way! Team Magma's scientific prowess, Mt. Chimney's energy... And the hidden power of the Meteorite! If we combine them all, a super-ancient Pokémon..."
"Hyahya! Even Team Aqua is making an appearance! The odds do not appear to be in my favor..."
"You there! I'll have the Meteorite now!"
"Ahyahya! The Meteorite is in the palm of my hand! Well, well, well... Adios to each and every one of you! At long last I'm off to Mt. Chimney!"
Mt. Chimney
  • Before battle
"Hyahyahya?! It's you! You're the one who tried to interrupt me, Tabitha, at Meteor Falls! D-d-do you intend to get in my way once more? Unngh! You're really... really, really, really, really, really, really... really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really... reeeallllyyyy... an obnoxious child, aren't you?! Ahh... Ah... I will...crush you. So that you..never get in my way...again."
  • When defeated
"Yet again? Hyuhn!"
  • After being defeated
"I knew you would be strong. What a shame, though! The Meteorite we got from Professor Whoever is already in our Boss's hands! Where's the Boss, you ask? Ah, yes, yes, right this way! Oh, I do hope that you can be shown Team Magma's true power! Ahya! Ahyahyahyahya!"
Weather Institute
" this... D-d-did Leader Maxie know that it would happen like this?!"
"Oh, shut it!"
"Just what is going on around here?! Ahyahya! Even I, Tabitha, am feeling all discombobulated. Leader Maxie! What are you trying to do?! ...To the world. ...To us. ...To Team Magma. This can never, ever be forgiven!"
  • Before battle
"Ahya. Are you one of my fans? You're that same kid who's always popping up! I can't believe you're even following me around in my private life. Ahyahya! Well, that's all right! Maybe I'l just clear up this intensely unpleasant feeling I have welling up inside of me... By beating you to a pulp!"
  • When defeated
  • After being defeated
"Hah... Hah... Ahya... Ahya... Good grief... Today has been absolutely nothing but stress! I can't take it... It's so unpleasant! You better listen, you stress-inducing child. When Leader Maxie's plan has been executed, twilight will fall upon the world. The Primordial Sea will be changed to Desolate Land. In other words, all life... Child! What do you think you can do in the face of that which is to come? I'm looking forward to seeing you rush into action! Ahya! Ahyahyahyahya!"
"The Leader should be headed for Mt. Pyre... Which means I..."

"Wait! Maxie!"
"Do stop that now... Please! Maxie! You just don't understand! What Groudon will bring about upon awakening is an end to the world!"
"Ohh... What have you done... Boss... What..."
"Boss?! Maxie?! Just what's happening on the surface?!"
"So the information we received from the Weather Institute was true... Boss Maxie! We'll never get anywhere just standing around here like this! There isn't a moment to spare! We must confirm the situation on the outside!"
"Child! You're coming, too! Hurry up!"
Route 128
"Boss... Maxie..."
"Let's go. Boss Maxie..."
Sootopolis City
"Leader that child...?"
"We had actually been preparing that in anticipation of making contact with Groudon... But at this point, it doesn't look like there's any hope of that for us... There's nothing we can do except leave it to you."
"That's true. It is very possible that its energy could be far greater than our calculations show."
"All right! Now is the time for us to carve out a new future with our scientific prowess! For the pride of Team Magma, we will struggle ferociously!"
  • After confronting Groudon
"It's as if the uncertainty and fear from moments ago never even existed. My heart feels like it's been softly set at ease..."
"Leader... Without a doubt, you have committed an offense that can never be forgiven. You have wronged not only Team Magma but all living things on this planet, whether great or small. However, that is precisely why you must now set things right. You must continue to atone for the sins you have committed, even at the risk of your own life... To set right the wrongs you've done, without running away in fear—isn't that how an adult accepts responsibility?"
"... Should you find the resolve to do so inside yourself, then I... Team Magma Admin Tabitha... I will serve at your side as counsel forever."
Delta Episode
Team Magma Hideout
"Leader Maxie! Please compose yourself!"
"Could it be?! The child?!"
"Wh-wh-wh-wh-What is going on here?! Who does she think she is, messing up our base and then giving us the slip?! That can never be forgiven!"
"What did you say?! I-is that all right?!"
"Cameruptite. Make sure your Camerupt holds on to it tightly."
After completing the episode
"Uwaahhh! This conversation isn't proceeding as expected!"'
"If it has come to this, then I, Tabitha, shall handle this myself! Courtney!"
"Apologize to Leader Maxie!"
"Hurry up! OK?! Just say "Sorry!""
"Ahyahya! And that settles that! Ahyahyahyahya!"

Subsequent visits

"Ahyahya! Listen up, child! Chief Admin will be the title that I, Tabitha, am referred to by in our newly reborn Team Magma!"

"Wh-wha-what?! I have never been so humiliated! You compare ME, Tabitha, the next Chief Admin of Team Magma, to a Makuhita?! You'd better at least make it a Hariyama!"
"... I don't understand this brute at all... Frightening... It looks as though I have no choice. I'll give you a good taste of the overwhelming power an Admin wields!"
"Huh? Who is this?!"
"Hm, hm. Seems like that child's here to get in our way. ...Making this no time for me to be picking fights with oversized brutes. My friend, I suggest we call a temporary truce. Let's work together to wipe out this meddling child!"

Tabitha in the anime

Though two Magma Admins appeared in the games, only Tabitha appeared in the anime. His first appearance was in A Three Team Scheme!, where he led a group of Team Magma Grunts in an exploration of some ancient ruins on Dewford Island in search of the Cave of Origin. They also had a confrontation with Team Aqua. Due to a dubbing error, he was mistakenly referred to as "Field Commander Harlan" during this episode, though his name was corrected in all subsequent appearances.

Tabitha appeared again in The Spheal of Approval, where he and two grunts broke into the Oceanic Museum in order to steal a rock sample owned by Captain Stern. Although Ash and his friends attempted to stop them, Team Magma successfully made off with most of the sample.

In Fight for the Meteorite!, Tabitha led a squad of grunts on a mission to Mt. Chimney, first stealing a meteorite from Professor Cozmo and then using it to power an experimental machine affecting the volcano. However, their plans were ultimately thwarted by Ash and Cozmo.

His final appearances were in Gaining Groudon and The Scuffle of Legends. His submarine accidentally picked up Ash and his friends while out on patrol, bringing them to Team Magma's base. He was present for the battle between Kyogre and Groudon, and, like the rest of Team Magma, has not been seen since.


Tabitha is an intimidating individual. He and Shelly have a rivalry with one another, often exchanging insults and battling one another. His loyalty to Team Magma's came into doubt after seeing the destructive power of the Red Orb in The Scuffle of Legends.

In the manga

In the Ash & Pikachu manga

Tabitha appeared in Two Groups Attacking! Magma VS. Aqua along with the other members of Team Magma.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

In Pokémon Adventures, "Tabitha" is a codename given to Admins of Team Magma. There are two known people given the codename Tabitha.

The first Tabitha in Pokémon Adventures

First Tabitha

The first Tabitha debuted in the Ruby & Sapphire chapter. He is one of the Three Fires of Team Magma, alongside Courtney and Blaise. Like other members of Team Magma, the horns on Tabitha's hood can be removed to reveal a special lighter that can transmit and record images through its flame. Like the other Three Fires, Tabitha specializes in using flames to his advantage. In his case, Tabitha uses the smoke from his Torkoal to make his targets drowsy.

He first appears alongside Courtney on the Abandoned Ship, where they were sent to obtain the Scanner hidden aboard. There, they meet Ruby and Sapphire, both of which attempt to keep the Scanner out of Tabitha and Courtney's hands. In the end, Ruby and Sapphire escape, but Tabitha and Courtney manage to obtain the Scanner. The Scanner is later given to Blaise, who modifies it to search for the Red and Blue Orbs. At Slateport City, Tabitha, Courtney, and Blaise are sent to capture Captain Stern and his assistant, Dock in order to obtain the Submarine Explorer 1. In the end, Blaise manages to obtain the submarine for Team Magma's use.

Tabitha later appears at Mt. Chimney, which had its volcanic activity stopped by Team Aqua. There, he encounters Flannery, a Gym Leader who fought Team Aqua but failed to stop their plan to kill Mt. Chimney. They teamed up to try and revive the volcano, but their attempts only brought it back for a short time. Angered at this failure, Tabitha cursed Team Aqua and returned to Team Magma's base.

With Team Magma possessing the Submarine Explorer 1 and Team Aqua possessing the heart component needed to keep it stable while underwater, both teams decide to have a temporary truce and head to the Seafloor Cavern together. When Team Magma and Aqua meet, they fit the Submarine Explorer 1 with its heart component and head underwater. After meeting with each other and completing the submarine, Tabitha and several Team Magma Grunts head underwater with Maxie. Upon arriving, the teams end their truce and proceed to head their separate ways. Archie manages to awaken Kyogre first, giving the advantage to Team Aqua. Despite this, Maxie uses the Red and Blue Orbs Blaise obtained from Mt. Pyre to control both super-ancient Pokémon to give Groudon an advantage over Kyogre. The strain of using both Orbs exhausts Maxie, so he hands the Blue Orb to Tabitha so he can control Kyogre.

Finding Kyogre's behavior suspicious, Archie sends Amber to investigate Team Magma. Amber finds Tabitha with the Blue Orb and attacks him to take it for Archie. The battle leads them into the Submarine Explorer 1, but Amber succeeds in obtaining the Blue Orb. Immediately after handing it over, Archie betrays Amber and sends the submarine into the ocean depths without the heart component, leaving Tabitha and Amber to die as the submarine breaks apart. Tabitha and Amber work together to keep the submarine afloat and preventing water from flowing inside, but it eventually breaks apart, sending both into the water. After attempting to save both himself and Amber by swimming to the surface, Tabitha is rescued by Blaise.

When the Gym Leaders split into groups in an attempt to stop both Pokémon, the Admins of Teams Magma and Aqua split up to stop them. Tabitha is paired up against Wallace, who he drags to an abandoned Lilycove City to battle in Lilycove Department Store. After being easily defeated, Tabitha suddenly goes crazy and begins attacking wildly. Wallace is saved by Steven, who reveals that coming in contact with the Blue Orb caused Tabitha to lose control of himself. Steven stays behind to battle Tabitha and sends Steven to assist in the battle against Groudon and Kyogre at Sootopolis City. Later, Steven defeats Tabitha, allowing to head to Sootopolis as well.

After Groudon and Kyogre are defeated, Tabitha returns to a normal life. He is seen visiting the Lavaridge Hot Springs, which were reopened after Groudon went to sleep in Mt. Chimney, reviving its volcanic activity.

In the Chuang Yi translations, he is known as Mitch.

Tabitha's Swellow
Swellow is Tabitha's first known Pokémon. It is mainly used for flight transportation.

None of Swellow's moves are known, and its Ability is Guts.

Debut Adding It Up with Plusle & Minun II
Tabitha's Torkoal
Torkoal is Tabitha's second known Pokémon and his main battling force. He can release various types of smoke and gas from his body, causing people to become drowsy. He was first used to battle Ruby and Sapphire on the Abandoned Ship. At the Seafloor Cavern, he attempted to protect the Blue Orb from Amber by holding the orb in his shell. Amber's Volbeat used Trick to switch the Blue Orb with a Figy Berry. When Tabitha and Amber were trapped inside the submarine, Torkoal used his smoke to keep the submarine afloat. At Lilycove Museum, he fought against Wallace's Whiscash, but was defeated.

Torkoal's known moves are Yawn, Heat Wave, Smog, and Body Slam, and his Ability is White Smoke.

Debut Adding It Up with Plusle & Minun II

Second Tabitha

The second Tabitha in Pokémon Adventures

In the Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire chapter, a second Tabitha appears. This Tabitha, along with a new Courtney, is a member of Neo Team Magma (Japanese: 新生マグマ団 Neo Magma Gang), having replaced the previous one. Along with Shelly, Tabitha is a former researcher from the Devon Corporation but hated his time working there due to Mr. Stone's policies.

At Mossdeep City, Tabitha appears to help Zinnia in stopping the launch of a rocket that would stop the meteoroid threatening to destroy the world. He, Courtney, and the Admins of the reborn Team Aqua, battle Sapphire in order to distract her long enough for Zinnia to head to the rocket. Tabitha offers Zinnia a Magma Suit to use, only for Shelly to suggest that Zinnia use the Aqua Suit instead, leading them to argue with each other.

Later, the Admins are attacked by the Hoenn Frontier Brains and are defeated. The Brains attempt to interrogate the Admins on Zinnia's whereabouts, but the Admins admit they don't know where she went to. Later, Tabitha and Shelly are called to Sootopolis City to assist in stopping the meteoroid.

In the Pokémon Omega Ruby Crimson Passion and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Indigo Wisdom manga

Camerupt then had a battle with Omega's Marshtomp and lost after Marshtomp evolved into Swampert.

Camerupt's only known move is Rock Slide.
