In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, the greatest villainous organization in history appears! It’s Team Rainbow Rocket—made up of the bosses from past titles in the Pokémon series! The boss of Team Rainbow Rocket is none other than Giovanni, who was also the boss of the villainous organization known as Team Rocket in Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue, the first games in the Pokémon series. But that’s not the worst of it—Giovanni has gathered into one group the bosses from the various past games in the Pokémon series! You and your allies will have to square off against what might be your greatest challenge yet! What in the world could Giovanni and his allies be after, appearing in the Alola region so suddenly…?
Team Rocket Boss Giovanni
Giovanni is the boss of Team Rocket, which made its debut in Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue. He schemes to commit many evil deeds using the Pokémon of the world. While he’s the boss of Team Rocket, he was also the Gym Leader of the Viridian City Gym, and he stood in the hero’s way countless times.
Team Magma Boss Maxie
Maxie is the boss of Team Magma, an villainous organization that appeared in Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire. He schemed to use the power of the Legendary Pokémon Groudon to dry up the seas and expand the lands, with the goal of increasing the space available to be used by those living on the land. He seems calm and collected, but he is ruthless—he will show no mercy to those who stand in his way.
Team Aqua Boss Archie
Archie is the boss of Team Aqua, an villainous organization that appeared in Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire. He tried to bring great rains down upon the land, borrowing the power of the Legendary Pokémon Kyogre in his hopes of expanding the sea, which is the source of all life. While he brims with empathy in his attempts to restore nature for the sake of Pokémon, he will use force to overwhelm anyone who’s in the way of his realizing his ideal world.
Team Galactic Boss Cyrus
Cyrus is the boss of Team Galactic, the villainous organization that appeared in Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl. Believing that the human heart is imperfect, Cyrus held a desire to use the power of the Legendary Pokémon Dialga or Palkia to erase the current world and create a perfect new world. He always conducts himself in a cool and logical way, and he is greatly trusted by his subordinates in Team Galactic.
Team Plasma Boss Ghetsis
Ghetsis is the boss of Team Plasma, the villainous organization that appeared in Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version. He planned to use the powers of the Legendary Pokémon Reshiram or Zekrom—as well as a boy called N, who is able to understand the hearts of Pokémon—to realize his desire that only his team should have Pokémon and should rule over all those without Pokémon. He speaks politely and acts like a gentleman, but he also shows glimpses of a cruel side—treating N, a boy he raised as if N were his own son, like a monster.
Team Flare Boss Lysandre
Lysandre is the boss of Team Flare, the villainous organization that appeared in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. He is, by nature, a man of deep sympathies—but he has been driven to despair by watching humans fighting and struggling against one another, and he comes to believe that the only way for people to live in beauty, without strife or struggle, is by reducing the number of people living in the world. He restored the ultimate weapon, which had been sealed away 3,000 years earlier, and then, using the power of the Legendary Pokémon Xerneas or Yveltal, he attempted to eradicate life.
