A Team Flare Admin (Japanese: フレア団のかんぶ Team Flare Executive) is a type of Pokémon Trainer introduced in Generation VI. They are members of Team Flare higher in rank than Team Flare Grunts.

Malva is implied to be a Team Flare Admin, since she knows classified information that, in her words, only certain Admins know about. Chalmers, a Butler who is encountered during Looker Bureau Chapter 4, is a former Team Flare Admin.

In Down to the Fiery Finish!, Admins used a machine that altered Z2's mind so that it would listen to Team Flare.

A male Admin appeared in A Towering Takeover!, where he led Alain to Xerosic in the Prism Tower.

Pokémon Adventures

Tierno encountered a female Team Flare Admin at Route 5. After learning of her plans to lead an operation to rob the Poké Ball Factory, Tierno fought the Admin to stop her. With help from X, Tierno managed to defeat the Admin, though they were unable to prevent the Poké Ball Factory from being robbed later.

A male Team Flare Admin named Chalmers attacked Gurkinn in order to obtain the secrets of Mega Evolution for his superiors. Although Chalmers defeated Gurkinn, he was soon defeated by Diantha, one of Gurkinn's students, and forced to run away. Later, Chalmers was seen locking Grace back into her cell at the Team Flare Secret HQ after her fifth attempt to escape had ended in a failure.

Later, both Chalmers and the female Admin, along with Malva's Delphox, were seen overseeing the plan to tie the Pokémon captured from the Pokémon Village to the prototype Absorbers on Route 10 so that their life energy could be drained to re-fuel the ultimate weapon. The plan was interrupted by the arrival of Alexa, Viola, Clemont, Bonnie, and Yvette. All Team Flare members on the route were defeated, thus putting a stop to their plan.


Flygon was used by a female Team Flare Admin X and his friend encountered at Route 5. Although it proved to be a powerful opponent, it was eventually defeated.

Flygon's only known move is Earth Power.

  • Team Flare Admins are the only villainous team admins to not receive a name in-battle, instead being named in a fashion similar to villainous team Grunts. The only Team Flare Admin with a known name is Chalmers, who only uses the name in-game when fought under a different Trainer class.
