This is the story of the Hoenn Region, years after the events of Pokemon Emerald taking place. Please read and enjoy. The sun came down, giving intense heat waves around the region. The feeling I had when it came down was like that of a Macargo, sleeping on my skin. But that only lasted for a few moments. The next sensation was that of a downpour. Heavy rain came down nearly drowning me from how thick it really was. The cycle repeated off and on for hours on end. Nobody including me had any idea what was going on in the Hoenn region. After a while though, the extreme weather changes just vanished. A day passed and the news had finally given us all a run down on what happened. I was only nine at the time so I could only understand half of it. The woman named Gabby and her camera man Ty had the complete story. It seemed that the groups known as Team Magma and Team Aqua had acquired the powers of the Legendary Pokemon: Groudon and Kyogre. A trainer by the name of Brendan had successfully stopped them from warping the Hoenn region and the world. Shortly after the events, that boy became the Pokemon Champion. He was a real inspiration for me. I knew after hearing his achievements on his Pokemon journey through Hoenn, I too wanted to be a Pokemon Trainer! The past leaders, Steven and Wallace, I heard traveled to the Unova region after training to participate in the Pokemon World Tournament. I hope to hear from that soon. Oh, right, you don't even know who I am. Well let me begin by saying I am a boy. My name is Rudy. Don't let the red shirt and goggles throw you off, I'm heading off to be a trainer today, on my 14th birthday. My friend Sophia is also going to go on an adventure today too. She turned 14 a few months ago, but she decided to wait for me. She is really kind that way. So this world I live in, its inhabits are us people and the creatures we call Pokemon. They are special creatures with special powers. Us humans and Pokemon have grown to be really close to each other over the years, creating powerful bonds. We also battle with them in Pokemon Battles. If you are good enough, you can challenge the Pokemon League and earn badges. That's my goal. I want to be just like Brendan! Right now, I'm in my room. I live with my mother and nobody else. My father is currently studying in Sinnoh. Some organisation called Team Galactic had caused trouble there, but it opened up our knowledge about the universe an the role Pokemon play. My room is pretty simple. I have a TV, a bed, a computer, and a WiiU console. Its not much but its home. I decided to head down stairs. My mother was watching the TV screen. There was something on the news that had just ended apparently. She turned the TV off once she noticed me. She walked over a gave me a smile. "That was the news. They said the Pokemon League in the Unova region had been engulfed by a giant castle, and the person who did it has yet to be found. Another strange thing to happen. Anyway, Happy Birthday Rudy! I hear the Professor's assistant is coming to town to deliver a Pokemon for you and Sophia. You should go and see for yourself." My mother was a nice person, prepared for the day I leave on my journey. I was just as excited as she was. I left the house and smelled the fresh air of the town I have come to know as Oldale Town. It was a small town. We were the center of a crossroad. We were in the center of routes 101, 102, and 103. What's really cool is that Brendan lived in the town south of here, Littleroot Town. I headed over to the Pokemon Center. Sophia was standing right in front of it. When she saw me, her face was filled with joy. "Happy Birthday Rudy! Guess what, the assistant of Professor Birch is inside the Pokemon Center. Let's go talk to her. I want to meet my new friend." We went into the Pokemon center. A girl in a red bandanna was standing in front of the counter, talking to Nurse Joy. Nurse Joy gave her some Pokeballs, the items that are used to catch Pokemon. The job of the nurse was to heal trainer's Pokemon. They did for free too, which is really nice for some. Finally, the girl turned around and walked toward us. "Hi, you must be Rudy and Sophia right?" "Right." Sophia replied. "Great! I'm May. My father sent me up here to give you your first Pokemon. I did the same thing when I first started. It brings back many good memories." "I'm so glad. I cant wait. Though, I think you should choose first Rudy, it is your birthday after all. I don't mind." "Rudy, you get to pick first then. Here I have three Pokeballs, each containing a very rare Pokemon. You have the choice between Treecko, Torchic, and Mudkip." The choice was given to me to pick. Would I choose the fast and agile Treecko? Maybe the fast and powerful Torchic? Or I could choose the juggernaut Mudkip. This would most likely be the most difficult choice I'll ever make as a trainer. Who to choose. I finally made my mind up and grabbed the Pokeball for Mudkip. "That's a great choice. Now you're turn, Sophia." "Right! I think my new friend will be Treecko. It looks friendly enough!" "Now that you both have your first Pokemon, how about you have a battle? I'm sure the Pokemon would love to meet and fight alongside their new trainers." "Yeah, that's a great idea. C'mon, Rudy, let's dance!" I let my new pokemon out and so did Sophia. They were so small and inexperienced. Something to be expected of Pokemon for new trainers. Her Treecko was faster than my Mudkip and began the fight with a Pound attack. I retaliated with Tackle. Right before her Treecko could counter me, I ordered Mudkip to dodge the attack and finish it with one more tackle. The blow was strong but Sophia's Treecko managed to survive by a thread. It ended up hitting my Mudkip with a critical blow. Now it was my turn to fight back. Mudkip used tackle one more time and managed to knock out Treecko. I was really happy, and so was Mudkip. I could see it in his face that he was glad that we were going to be partners. Together we would battle all the gyms and beat the Pokemon League. It was my turn to be a true trainer. "Great battle you two! Reminds me of my first fight with Brendan way back when. Here let me heal your Pokemon." May had healed out Pokemon completely using some medicine acquired at a Pokemart. I was really shocked she was friends with Brendan. "Woah, you knew Brendan? You're really lucky." "Right when he moved to Hoenn, we've been rivals and friends ever since. Now, I have a gift for the two of you. Take these Pokedex's. They let you record the information of a Pokemon that you meet. They give even more information if you catch them. Please try your best to fill them." "Thank you so much, May. I cant wait to start my adventure. See you, Rudy, see you, May." And with that she ran out of the Pokemon Center at top speed. "I should be going too. My father would be glad to hear that everything went well. You should head up to route 103. I left a gift up there for you and Sophia. She knows about it too." And then May left too. I left the Pokemon Center and looked at Mudkip. I smiled and nodded. We were going to travel Hoenn together and become Champion.
