The FreeTem! Organisation believes Temtem should be free to roam the land not locked inside a TemCard. In order to incentivize the liberation of Temtem, they offer Pansun upon releasing Temtem. In addition, each week they will have a different special reward, which will be granted upon reaching a certain number of freed Temtem. The rewards change at 12am every Monday, EST in the United States of America. If a player has released Temtem but does not collect their reward by the time of the change, they will still receive Pansun but the releases will not count towards the number needed for the new week's rewards.
The organization and its Temtivists desire to end Temsploitation, the exploitation of Temtem. In the past, humans needed Temtem to survive, but now with technological advancements, humans aren't reliant on them any longer, so they should be freed. They also run reintegration farms on a few islands, to help tamed Temtem find their place in their original habitat. Tihani is the only Dojo Leader who is open to their ideas. She agrees with the organization that many Tamers over-catch.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- From a world-building standpoint, FreeTem! exists to provide an in-world condemnation of animal exploitation, a crime which Pokémon has been accused of promoting.
- The purpose of charities and nonprofit organizations is to eliminate their need for existence. For example, FreeTem! exists to end the exploitation of Temtem. They do this by creating incentives to release Temtem, per the theory of harm reduction. In effect, this creates a dynamic where players catch-and-release Temtem en masse as a means of income. This actual practice undermines the lore-based mission of FreeTem!, and is an example of irony.
- The irony goes further because catching-and-releasing Temtem en masse is a practice traditional to the Pokémon games (for the purpose of getting perfect SVs/IVs and Lumas/Shinies), and the designers of Temtem actually wish to reward that practice.
- If one considers catch and release to be an ethical practice and not a form of abuse, then FreeTem! non-ironically succeeds in its mission.
