In the anime

As an entity, Team Flare debuted in From A to Z!, including its five scientists, Celosia, Mable, Aliana, Bryony, and Xerosic. However, Lysandre first appeared in Mega Evolution Special I as a mysterious benefactor assisting Alain on his quest in exchange for information on Mega Evolution. Lysandre and Team Flare eventually went on to become the main antagonists of the XY & Z arc of Pokémon the Series: XY.

In the manga

Pokémon Adventures

The Team Flare Scientist appeared early on in the X & Y arc, observing Xerneas and Yveltal's battle in Vaniville Town and attempting to steal X's Mega Ring. Lysandre debuted soon after, observing a video of the aforementioned battle at Professor Sycamore's laboratory. Team Flare as a whole served as the major antagonists of the chapter.
