In the games
Team A.C.T. plays a role in the games as the team that is idolized by the player's partner and Pokémon Square onlookers.
They warn the player to go and escape after Gengar accuses them of being the human in the Ninetales legend and the reason for the range of natural disasters that are occurring. They act as one of the many rescue teams pursuing the player and their partner into Lapis Cave, Mt. Blaze, Frosty Forest, and Mt. Freeze, ending up being the only team to make it the entire way.
They later attempt to battle Groudon in Magma Cavern, but to no avail. Only Alakazam makes it to see Groudon, but vanishes when the player finishes talking to him.
Team A.C.T. joins that player's team after connecting with Whiscash. All are connected with Whiscash.
It is mentioned by Lombre during the team's first appearance in that Charizard knows Flamethrower. Alakazam also knows Teleport, as he used this alongside Xatu's Teleport to create the Teleport Gem. None of Tyranitar's moves are mentioned or explicitly known.
