Team Eclipse is the villainous organization of Roria. Members of the team have a very different perspective of both people and Pokémon — they assume that humans and Pokémon together were not meant to be.

Promptly after the player starts his or her journey and proceeds to Route 1, the player's in-game parents get kidnapped by Team Eclipse at home. From this point onward, the player will frequently run into Eclipse members and must stop their evil plans in order to rescue his or her parents whilst saving Roria.

Showdowns

Spaceship

The Team Eclipse Airship raiding Anthian City.

  1. Cheshma Town & Gale Forest: The so-called "Professor's friend" Linda steals player's Brick Bronze Necklace and rushes off into the forest, but gets cornered in a dead end. The player must confront her to retrieve the necklace, and while doing so, she reveals her true identity as an Eclipse Member. However, after getting the Float Badge from Rosecove Gym, the player runs into Prof. Cypress, and he talks like he has no idea who Linda is, calling her "a strange woman" rather than her name.
  2. Route 6 & Mt. Igneus: In order to wake Legendary Pokémon Groudon-the Continent Pokemon.Team Eclipse raids Brimber Gym and steals the Red Orb, then heads inside the volcano. After the player takes out all of the grunts, Eclipse Admin Harry activates the Red Orb nevertheless!
  3. Lighthouse, Rosecove Beach: Setting their aim on another Legendary Pokémon Kyogre-the Sea Basin Pokémon. Eclipse grunts surround the lighthouse, threatening Rival Tess and her grandfather to hand over the Blue Orb. Despite being wiped out by the player again, Eclipse Admin Gabe accidentally activates the Blue Orb by throwing it into the sea in a fit, instantly setting up a downpour...
  4. Anthian City: Before the player arrives, the villainous team had already invaded the city once, but was stopped by the police and had one of their grunts arrested. Nevertheless, after acquiring Soaring Badge, Team Eclipse attacks the city again, this time with reinforcements, overpowering the police and stealing the Prison Bottle from Pokémon Museum of History. Admin Tyler manages to blast the power core that supports the whole city, while Rival Jake charges forward to Anthian Park alone — where the airship of Team Eclipse landed, only to be caught by other Eclipse Admins before he even has a chance to stop them. The player and Rival Tess sneak through Anthian Sewer in order to rescue Jake, but a familiar face shows up right in front of them!
  5. Aredia Ruins: While paying a visit to the ruins to honour his ancestors, Prince Ryan runs into a few Eclipse Grunts who stole the King's Red Jewel, trying to find the rumoured powerful Pokémon inside and thinking that the Jewels may please their Boss. With the assistance of the player, the Eclipse Grunts are outmatched and expelled, dropping the Jewel in the process.
  6. Route 14: On the way to Frostveil City, the player and Rival Tess bump into 3 Eclipse Members trying to get some new recruits. Tess refuses to join the side of evil and has the player battle those Grunts. After defeating the 2 Grunts, the masked Admin suddenly talks about reuniting with player and Tess, revealing himself to be...!

Trivia

  • Linda is the only Eclipse Member that has her exact rank kept unknown, only going with the trainer class "Eclipse Member" rather than "Eclipse Admin" or "Eclipse Grunt".
  • Before Anthian City update, Eclipse Member Linda's Poochyena and Pancham were 2 levels lower, giving only 47 and 105 EXP Points respectively.
  • Eclipse Admin Tyler is based on the creator of Super Bomb Survival — Polyhex. His team consists of Pokémon with the moves Self-Destruct and Explosion.
  • Eclipse Grunt Battle Music, as well as the theme of VS Eclipse Member Linda, is a remix of the Legendary Titans Battle Theme from Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald, as well as their remakes Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.
    • The battle theme of Eclipse Grunts has been replaced by another remix version from Kyle Allen Music later on.
  • Eclipse Admin Battle Music is based on VS Magma Boss Maxie / Aqua Boss Archie theme, also from Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire.
