“I’m one of Team Galactic’s three Commanders. We’ve been trying to create a new world that’s better than this one... But people have shown little understanding about what we do. You don’t understand either, do you? It’s a little saddening... So, let’s have a battle to decide what we should do next. If I win, you leave. If you win, we, Team Galactic, will leave!”- Mars in Pokemon Diamond and Pearl.
Mars is the first of the three/four commanders in Team Galactic. She is first met at the Valley Windworks, where she attempts to take it over. She is then at Lake Verity after her plans to capture Mesprit are successful. After story mode the player meets encounters Mars at Stark Mountain. In Pokémon Platinum, Mars and Jupiter face off against the player at Stark Mountain. If you beat them, they will quit Team Galactic.
