Trivia

  • Maxie, alongside Archie, was the first Master Fair-exclusive sync pair to receive a rerun banner.

Origin

Maxie's design is based on his appearance in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. Groudon is a Pokémon that Maxie seeks to control during the story of Pokémon Ruby, Emerald, and Omega Ruby. An alternate version of Maxie also uses a Groudon in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. Groudon's Dex entry comes from Pokémon Omega Ruby.
