; Where has our WALLY gone?
We have to leave for VERDANTURF TOWN
very soon...
Hiya! Are you maybe...
A rookie TRAINER?
Do you know what POKéMON TRAINERS
do when they reach a new town?
They first check what kind of GYM
is in the town.
See? This is PETALBURG CITY's GYM.
This is the GYM's sign. Look for it
whenever you're looking for a GYM.
My face is reflected in the water.
It's a shining grin full of hope...
Or it could be a look of somber silence
struggling with fear...
What do you see reflected in your face?
Let's say you have six POKéMON.
If you catch another one...
It is automatically sent to a STORAGE
BOX over a PC connection.

WALLY'S HOUSE
I'm the ENERGY GURU!
I'll go for it and sell you what you need!
Oh?
Your @
...
Went for it stupendously!
As its reward, please give it this
EFFORT RIBBON.
LANDON received the EFFORT RIBBON.
LANDON put the EFFORT RIBBON
on @
You have to go for it a little harder.
If you do, I'll give your POKéMON
something nice.
Oh! Your @
, that EFFORT
RIBBON looks good on it!
The light of the lighthouse reaches
dozens of miles away.
I wonder if it doesn't startle POKéMON
in the sea.
Ooh, look at this!
The seaweed you can get around these
parts is fresh and full of life.
Why, it looks like it can even rear up
and attack!
Where the water is clean, the fruits
of bountiful harvest gather.
And where people gather, a market
soon starts.
That is how a town is born and grows.
Shopping where you can breathe the
scent of the ocean...
SLATEPORT is such a wonderful place!
If you put DOLLS or CUSHIONS on the
floor, they'll get dirty.
I'm going to buy some BRICKS so my
DOLLS and CUSHIONS won't get dirty=when I leave them out.
Yeah! I've waited so long for this!
POKéMON CONTESTS!=I'm going to enter!
But before I do, I have to catch some
POKéMON!
Whew... I'm just bushed...
I hiked over from MAUVILLE CITY.
But, boy, this city's huge.
If I'd known this, I would've ridden
my BIKE here.
STERN, the fellow who built the
MUSEUM, also happens to be the leader=of an undersea exploration team.
So, everyone calls him CAPT. STERN.
What is that over there?
That long line...
When I was a child, I visited the
MUSEUM often.
I used to dream about the mysteries of
the sea after seeing the exhibits.
Hey, there! Quit pushing!
This is the line, can't you see?
TEAM @
has a policy of
assembling and dispersing at the=operation site.
Our BOSS is brilliant.
What would he want to do with a
MUSEUM now?
What's the new scheme, I wonder?
Our BOSS is scary when he's mad, so
I'd better not screw things up...
If there's something we need in the
MUSEUM, we should take it all!
Hey, you there!
Don't butt in!
A long line, huh?
It reminds me of the times I lined up to
buy smash-hit games...
Why are we even lining up and paying?
We should just march in!
The sea is just so vast...
Could the sea have been made by the
tears shed by POKéMON?
Do you know what they do with old
ships that become too creaky to sail?
They sink them in the sea so they
become habitats for POKéMON.
Whenever I visit here, I get carried
away and buy too much.
If you want to change your POKéMON's
nickname, you'll have to get the NAME=RATER to help you.
Any POKéMON you get in a trade, you
can't change its nickname.
The original TRAINER's love for that
POKéMON is in the nickname.
A POKéMON CONTEST HALL opened in
SLATEPORT recently.
I plan on entering after I improve the
condition of my POKéMON.
Do you know about the machine
BERRY BLENDER?
People have to work together to get it
to spin faster.
The faster you can make it spin, the
better
S you can get, I've heard.
It's used for making a kind of candy
called a
If you give a good
to a POKéMON,
its condition will improve by a lot.
I was hoping that it was a famous star
so I could get an autograph.
But who's that being interviewed?
Isn't that CAPT. STERN?
That lady interviewer is so cool and
pretty.
When I grow up, I'm going to be an
international journalist!
CAPT. STERN says they discovered
something at the bottom of the sea.
I wonder what it is?
What could it be?
What's going on here?
Did the good CAPTAIN come back with
a big fish from the ocean floor?
Hey! Are you watching?
Am I on TV?
A TV interview! Here!
The CAPTAIN's a celebrity!
TY: Okay, CAPT. STERN, a big smile
for the camera!
GABBY: I see, I see. You've had a most
invaluable experience...
CAPT. STERN: Yes, indeed. We intend to
move ahead with our exploration.
GABBY: That's wonderful, CAPT. STERN!
Thank you for taking the time from=your busy schedule to talk to us.
We hope we can interview you again
with news of more discoveries!
CAPT. STERN: Whew...
That was my first time to be filmed for
TV. That was nerve wracking.
Oh! LANDON
You're looking great!
We made a huge discovery on our last
seafloor exploration.
We found an underwater cavern on
ROUTE 128.
We think it's the habitat of a POKéMON
that's said to have been long extinct.
Fufufu...
CAPT. STERN, I presume.
We of TEAM @
will assume
control of your submarine!
Your objections are meaningless!
We expect your total cooperation!
Fufufu...
Just watch and learn what TEAM=@
has planned!
CAPT. STERN: What was that all about?
It sounded like someone using a
megaphone...
Where did it come from?
It's from the HARBOR!
The submarine!
They're trying to take it!
LANDON
Please, come with me!

UNCLE: It's because of POKéMON that
this boy's got more pep, I suppose...=But he's become a bit too peppy...
WALLY: Aww, UNCLE, please?
I want to challenge this GYM and see
how much better I've become.
Please? May I, please?
UNCLE: Now hold on, WALLY.
Since you started living with POKéMON,
you have grown quite a lot stronger.
But don't you think you're pushing it
to suddenly challenge a GYM?
WALLY: I'm not pushing it.
If I combine forces with RALTS,
we can beat anyone!
WALLY: Oh! Hi, LANDON!
I've gotten a lot stronger since we
met.
LANDON, I want you and my UNCLE to
understand that.
LANDON, please, will you have a
battle with me?
WALLY: Oh... If you won't battle me,
LANDON, my UNCLE won't know that I've=become really strong.
UNCLE: LANDON
, was it?
On WALLY's behalf, can I ask you to=battle with him just this once?
I don't think he's going to listen to
any reason the way he is now.
WALLY: LANDON, please!
Battle with me, please.
WALLY: LANDON, thank you.
Okay... Here I come!
WALLY: ... ... ... ... ... ... ...
... ... ... ... ... ... ... ...
I lost...
WALLY: UNCLE...
I'll go back to VERDANTURF...
LANDON, thank you.
Being a TRAINER is tough, isn't it?
It's not enough just to have POKéMON
and make them battle. That isn't what=being a real TRAINER is about.
UNCLE: WALLY, there's no need to be so
down on yourself.
Why, what's keeping you from becoming
stronger and stronger?
Come on, let's go home.
Everyone's waiting for you.
UNCLE: LANDON
, it just dawned on me
that you must be the TRAINER who kept=an eye out for WALLY when he caught=his POKéMON.
Why don't you visit us in VERDANTURF
sometime?=I'm sure WALLY would enjoy it.
WATTSON: Oh, LANDON
You look like you have a lot of zip!=That's a good thing, wahahahaha!
Fine! I've decided!
I need a favor, LANDON
MAUVILLE CITY has an underground
sector called NEW MAUVILLE.
LANDON
, I'd like you to go there and
switch off the GENERATOR.
The GENERATOR has been running a bit
haywire. It's getting unsafe.
Here, this is the KEY to get into NEW
MAUVILLE.
WATTSON: Don't you worry about it.
It won't be a challenge to you.
The entrance to NEW MAUVILLE is just
a short SURF away from ROUTE 110.
That's it, then, you have my trust!
Wahahahaha!
WATTSON: Wahahahaha!
I knew it, LANDON
! I knew I'd made
the right choice asking you!
This is my thanks - a TM containing
THUNDERBOLT!
Go on, you've earned it!
WATTSON: Wahahahaha!
It pleases me to no end to see the
young step up and take charge!
You know, it's cool to have POKéMON
battles and stuff...
But if your POKéMON gets hurt, you
have to nurse it back to health.
The roads of this town stretch north
and south, and east and west.
Because of that, we get all sorts of
people coming through.
Have you been to RYDEL'S CYCLES yet?
RYDEL, the owner, is a very generous
man.
Even if you're riding a BIKE, wild
POKéMON could jump you.

Hi, do you check out TV at all?
They've added a bunch of cool new
shows recently.
TV is so cool. I've seen my friends on
TV just out of the blue.
And, sometimes, they even put you on TV
without telling you.
I wish I would be on TV sometime.
That's why I think you should check
out TVs whenever you can.
Hi, have you been checking out TVs?
The DEVON CORPORATION...
We all just shorten it to DEVON.
That company makes all sorts of
convenient products.
Hm? A sneaky-looking man?
Come to think of it, yes, a shady-
looking guy went around the corner.
Have you taken the POKéMON GYM
challenge?
When you get that shiny GYM BADGE
in hand, I guess TRAINERS begin to=realize what is required of them.
Hey, that's RUSTBORO's GYM BADGE!
Out of all the POKéMON GYM BADGES,
RUSTBORO's is the coolest, I'd say.
Oh? Who might you be?
You're a new face around these parts.
Have you just transferred into the
POKéMON TRAINER'S SCHOOL?
I challenged the GYM LEADER, but...
It's not going to be easy winning with
my FIRE-type POKéMON...
FIRE-type POKéMON don't match up
well against ROCK-type POKéMON...
The old sailor MR. BRINEY lives in a
cottage by the sea.
He goes for walks in the tunnel every
so often.
The old sailor MR. BRINEY lives in a
cottage by the sea.
He said he was going shopping in
SLATEPORT for his pet, PEEKO.
That old seadog, he must really love
that PEEKO.
Wow, you have POKéMON with you, too.
When I get bigger, I'm going to go
places with POKéMON, too.
POKéMON TRAINER'S SCHOOL!
If I go to this school, will I be able
to catch rare POKéMON easily?
If a POKéMON gains experience in
battles, it can sometimes change in=the way it looks.
A POKéMON changes shape?
If one did that, I would be shocked!
A POKéMON you get in a trade from
someone grows fast.
But if you don't have certain GYM
BADGES, it may not obey you...
Get out! Out of the way!
Wait! Pleeeaaase!
Don't take my GOODS!
Oh, it's you!
You're that fantastic TRAINER who
helped me in PETALBURG WOODS!
Help me! I was robbed by TEAM @
I have to get the DEVON GOODS back!
If I don't...
I'm going to be in serious trouble.
That shady character, I think he took
off towards the tunnel over there.
Oh! How did it go?
The DEVON GOODS?
You did!
You got them back!
You really are a great TRAINER!
I know! As my thanks, I'll give you
another GREAT BALL!
Your BAG's full.
I can't give you this GREAT BALL.
Excuse me, please!
Please come with me!
MAY: Oh, hi, LANDON
How's your POKéDEX coming along?
Mine's looking pretty decent.
I caught POKéMON in PETALBURG WOODS
until I ran out of POKé BALLS.
MAY: Oh, by the way, I passed MR. BRINEY
in PETALBURG WOODS.
I guess he's on his way home to his
cottage by the sea.
LANDON
, you just moved here so you
might not know this, but MR. BRINEY=was once a revered seafarer.
BRENDAN: LANDON, how's your POKéDEX?
Have you filled in any pages yet?
Mine rules.
I went on a POKéMON-catching frenzy
in PETALBURG WOODS until I ran out=of POKé BALLS.
BRENDAN: By the way, I walked by MR.
BRINEY in PETALBURG WOODS.
I bet he was on his way home to his
cottage by the sea.
I bet you didn't know this, but he's
always got a POKéMON with him.

I want to go to the POKéMON GYM, but
something's blocking the way.
After all the bother I went through
training on ROUTE 120...
I've got my pride-and-joy POKéMON
with me. This time, I'll beat WINONA.
The ground absorbs rainwater, and
trees grow by drinking that water...
Our FORTREE CITY exists because
there's both water and soil.
The CITY consists of homes built on
trees.
Perhaps because of that lifestyle,
everyone is healthy and lively.
Why, even myself - I feel as if I've
grown thirty years younger.
Living on top of trees is okay.
But sometimes BUG POKéMON come in
through windows.=It can be really startling.
Some POKéMON evolve when they go
through a Game Link cable.
Something unseeable is in the way.

MAY: Oh, hey?
LANDON
, are you shopping, too?
I bought a whole bunch of DOLLS and
POSTERS.
Of course, I've also caught a lot of
POKéMON, and I'm raising them=properly, too.
Actually, I'm more worried if you're
raising POKéMON properly, LANDON
I'll battle with you, so you can show
me your POKéMON, LANDON
MAY: Oh, why? LANDON
, haven't you
been raising your POKéMON?
That's not a very good showing as a
TRAINER...
MAY: Come on, battle with me, so I can
check out your POKéMON!
MAY: The POKéMON I raised won't be
beaten by your POKéMON, LANDON
... ... ... ... ... ... ... ...
I remember the battle I had with you,
LANDON
, on ROUTE 103.
That battle helped you become this
strong, LANDON
, didn't it?
MAY: I'm thinking of going back to
LITTLEROOT soon.
I've caught a decent group of POKéMON,
and my POKéDEX is coming along, so=I'm going home to show my dad.
LANDON
, what are you going to do?
Collect all the GYM BADGES and take
the POKéMON LEAGUE challenge?
Well, while you're collecting BADGES,
LANDON
, I'm going to work on my=POKéDEX. I'll complete it before you!
See you!
LANDON
, what are you going to do?
Are you taking the POKéMON LEAGUE
challenge?
Or, are you going to complete your
POKéDEX?
I might've lost to you in battling,
but I'll finish my POKéDEX before you!
See you!
LANDON
, what are you going to do?
Are you taking the BATTLE TOWER
challenge?
Or, are you going to complete your
POKéDEX?
I might've lost to you in battling,
but I'll finish my POKéDEX before you!
See you!
BRENDAN: Oh, hey, it's LANDON.
I'm running an errand for my dad.
No, I'm not buying any DOLLS.
Anyways, it's been a while.
Want to have a battle to see who's been
raising POKéMON better?
BRENDAN: Oh, what's the matter?
Don't have the confidence?
BRENDAN: Want to battle to see who's
been raising POKéMON better?
BRENDAN: Aww, but you know I'm not
going to lose to no LANDON.
Humph...
You've done a lot of raising.
That stings a bit - I had a head start
on you as a TRAINER...
BRENDAN: I...
I plan on going home to LITTLEROOT.
You know I'm helping out my dad on his
POKéDEX. It's coming together pretty=decently, so I should go show him.
LANDON, what are you going to do?
Collect all the GYM BADGES and take
the POKéMON LEAGUE challenge?
Maybe I'll do that, too...
Well, anyway, hang in there!
LANDON, what are you going to do?
Since you're that strong, are you
taking the POKéMON LEAGUE challenge?
Heh, even me - if I trained my POKéMON
a bit more, I should be stronger than=you, LANDON.
Well, anyway, hang in there!
LANDON, what are you going to do?
Since you're that strong, are you
taking the BATTLE TOWER challenge?
Heh, even me - if I trained my POKéMON
a bit more, I should be stronger than=you, LANDON.=Maybe I will go to the BATTLE TOWER.
Well, anyway, hang in there!
Fufufu...
We moved more loot into our secret
HIDEOUT today...
Wh-who are you?!
I was just talking to myself!
I'm just a GRUNT, so I don't know what
the BOSS is thinking...
But being on TEAM @
, I know I'll get
the chance to do big things!
Wh-who are you?!
I was just talking to myself!
Hey, you!
Don't go near the cave in the cove!
Why? You don't need a reason why!
I'm an adult, so you just listen to me!
If this whole wide world becomes ours,
TEAM @
's, it will be a happier=place for POKéMON, too.
There! WAILMER!
Leap out of the water now!
Hunh? What do you want?
You're messing up our training, so can
you, like, get lost?
The POKéMON that come to this CONTEST
HALL are all prizewinners.=They come from all over the country.
My heart swells with excitement!
Have you seen that strange cave in
the cove at the edge of town?
I'm going to teach my POKéMON some new
moves for entering a CONTEST.
So, I'm going to see the MOVE DELETER
and make it forget HM moves.
I came from KANTO.
The HOENN region is beautiful with
all its water and verdant nature.
Hunh? Wait a second...
Could there be rare POKéMON that live
only in this area?
TEAM @
's been training their
WAILMER in the cove.
We SAILORS can't get our boats out
to sea with them in the way!
Ahoy, did you know?
Someone punted TEAM @
out of the
way for us!
That got the WAILMER out of the cove,
so we can get our boats out again.
I was taking a relaxing snooze at the
seaside inn to the sound of waves...
When someone stole my POKéMON!
Who's the abductor?
TEAM @
? Is it TEAM @
My missing POKéMON...
It came back without me noticing!
I'm an ART DEALER.
I am a buyer and seller of fine art,
especially paintings.
I've heard that the MUSEUM here has
magnificent works on exhibit...
Even as we grow old and wrinkled, the
sea remains forever young with the=vivid brilliance of life...
Fwohoho fwohohohoho...
It was sixty years ago that my husband
proposed to me here.=The sea remains as beautiful as ever.
Mufufufu mufufufufufu...
Hm, you know of the peculiar cavern
in this cove?
That had been a natural formation, but
then that TEAM @
lot came along=and made their renovations.
They call themselves the "nature-loving
TEAM @
"2!
But what they do and what they say
don't match at all!
That cave in the cove...
It seems someone sealed the entrance,=so no one can enter it anymore.
That TEAM @
lot, they must
have gone away for good.

Why would you want it?
You're weird.
You can keep it, but keep it a secret
from STEVEN.
Is it really that fun collecting
rocks? I don't get it.
Yeah, you think so, too! What are you
supposed to do with some weird rock?
Around MOSSDEEP, you can see wild
WAILMER.
It's called, uh...
What was it now...
WAI, WAI, WAI...
WAILMER watching!
The island's SPACE CENTER has been
launching huge rockets.
I'd heard from my mates in LILYCOVE
that the herd of WAILMER has=disappeared.
What went down over there, I wonder?
Wouldn't it be nice?
If the whole world was covered in
plants and flowers like this island?
All life needs the sea to live, even
though it makes its home on the land.
Life, having run its course, becomes
soil and returns to the land.
And the sea is always connected to
the land.
Yes, like the very shoreline here.
A voyage on a ship is fine.
But crossing the sea with POKéMON
using SURF...
Now that's an exhilarating trip!
Wouldn't you agree, youngster?
This rock has a special meaning to
the people at the SPACE CENTER.
They put it here as their wish for
their rockets to fly safely.
When you make a wish, what do you use?
Do you wish upon a star?
I use a wish tag to make it happen.
That's what I do.
It's a white rock.

I... I've never been out of this city.
I wonder what the world is like on the
other side of this round sky?
Hm!
You've come all the way to SOOTOPOLIS?=You're no ordinary tourist.
But I suppose that doesn't make you an
extraordinary tourist, either.
SOOTOPOLIS sprang up as a town in the
crater of a volcano.
If you look up at the sky, the lip of
the crater is also visible.=So, all you see is the sky in a circle.
But that's what makes the sky above
SOOTOPOLIS the most beautiful.

Oh, yes, can you hear out what my

My name is WALLACE.
I'm this town's GYM LEADER.
I've also been entrusted with the
protection of the CAVE OF ORIGIN.
This downpour is caused by a power
emanating from the CAVE OF ORIGIN.
That... That is the BLUE ORB.
I see.
Follow me.
STEVEN: This rain...
People and POKéMON need water to live...
But why does this rain fill us with
so much dread?
The rain clouds over SOOTOPOLIS will
keep building and soon extend all=over HOENN...
If that were to happen...
WALLACE: The CAVE OF ORIGIN is ahead.
No one from SOOTOPOLIS is permitted
to enter the CAVE OF ORIGIN.
But you must go.
Together with your BLUE ORB.
You must go regardless of what awaits
you inside the CAVE...
STEVEN: LANDON
, I never expected you
to be holding the BLUE ORB.
You'll be okay. With your POKéMON,
you'll get things done no matter what.
I'm convinced of it!
WALLACE: You must go together with
your BLUE ORB.
You must go regardless of what awaits
you inside the CAVE...
STEVEN: You'll be okay. With your
POKéMON, you'll get things done=whatever happens.
I'm convinced of it!
STEVEN: LANDON
, you came, too?
Under this scorching sun, yet...
Oh, yes, can you hear out what my
friend has to say?
My name is WALLACE.
I'm this town's GYM LEADER.
I've also been entrusted with the
protection of the CAVE OF ORIGIN.
This sunshine is caused by a power
emanating from the CAVE OF ORIGIN.
That... That is the RED ORB.
I see.
Follow me.
STEVEN: This sunlight...
People and POKéMON need sunlight
to live...
But why does this sunlight fill us
with so much dread?
The blazing sun over SOOTOPOLIS is
intensifying... Soon, all of HOENN=will be under its withering glare...
If that were to happen...
WALLACE: The CAVE OF ORIGIN is ahead.
No one from SOOTOPOLIS is permitted
to enter the CAVE OF ORIGIN.
But you must go.
Together with your RED ORB.
You must go regardless of what awaits
you inside the CAVE...
STEVEN: LANDON
, I never expected you
to be holding the RED ORB.
You'll be okay. With your POKéMON,
you'll get things done no matter what.
I'm convinced of it!
WALLACE: You must go together with
your RED ORB.
You must go regardless of what awaits
you inside the CAVE...
STEVEN: You'll be okay. With your
POKéMON, you'll get things done=whatever happens.
I'm convinced of it!
The legend told by the old man on
MT. PYRE... It wasn't a made-up story.
The natural balance of HOENN is going
through a wrenching shift...
STEVEN: LANDON
, we owe it all to you.
The sky above SOOTOPOLIS has returned
to normal. For that, WALLACE sends his=thanks, too.
And, that same WALLACE is waiting for
you inside.
He's strong.
But the way you are now, you should be=on equal footing with him.
Give it your best shot.
All life starts at the CAVE OF ORIGIN,
and it all ends on MT. PYRE...
Where do people and POKéMON come
from? Where are we bound?
Let me guess, you're going to challenge
WALLACE?
Oh, you are really?
You're awfully brave!
Let me guess, you've beaten WALLACE!
Oh, you did, really?
Maybe I'll become your fan!
Hm!
You've come all the way to SOOTOPOLIS?=You're no ordinary tourist.
But I suppose that doesn't make you an
extraordinary tourist, either.
A circle of a night sky framed by the
crater of a volcano...
And in that ring, stars flicker and
blink as if they were alive...=It's my favorite scenery.
Hunh? Where is my house?

This is our new home!
It has a quaint feel, but it seems to be

And, you get your own room, LANDON!
Let's go inside.
MOM: Wait, LANDON!
MOM: LANDON! LANDON! Did you
introduce yourself to PROF. BIRCH?
Oh! What an adorable POKéMON!
You got it from PROF. BIRCH. How nice!
You're your father's child, all right.
You look good together with POKéMON!
Here, honey! If you're going out on an
adventure, wear these RUNNING SHOES.
They'll put a zip in your step!
LANDON switched shoes with the

The power of science is staggering!
PROF. BIRCH spends days in his LAB

When does PROF. BIRCH spend time
at home?
If you go in the tall grass at the sides
of this road, wild POKéMON will appear.
It's not safe to go out there if you
don't have any POKéMON with you.
I can hear someone shouting down the
road here.
What should I do? What should we do?
Somebody has to go help...
Boy, am I glad you went and rescued

Are you going to catch POKéMON?
Good luck!

in a little fishing advice!
First, you want to face the water,
then use the ROD.
Focus your mind...
If you get a bite, pull on the ROD.
Sometimes you can snag something
immediately, but with bigger catches,=you need to time the pulls on your ROD=to haul them in.
Oh, is that so?
That's too bad, then.
Yo!
How's your fishing?
Is that right! That's great!
Haul in some big ones!
Oh, hey, don't get down on yourself!
I'll give you a little fishing advice.

MAY: LANDON
! Long time no see!
Oh? While I was visiting the hot springs,
you got the LAVARIDGE GYM BADGE.
You must have caught good POKéMON...
No, I guess you raised some.
I guess it would be okay for you to
have this.
MAY: With those GO-GOGGLES, you'll
have no trouble getting through the=desert near ROUTE 111.
But, wow, LANDON
...
Challenging GYMS...
You're trying hard because you don't
want to lose to me, I bet!
LANDON
, I think I should challenge
your dad in PETALBURG GYM.
LANDON
, see you again!
BRENDAN: LANDON, hey, it's been a while.
How's it going?
Hmm...
That's a decent collection of BADGES.
All right, then.
You may as well have this.
BRENDAN: Keep those with you if you're
planning on going into that desert near=ROUTE 111.
There should be some POKéMON that
are exclusively desert-dwellers.=You might look around for those.
As for me...
I'm considering challenging NORMAN,=the GYM LEADER of PETALBURG.
Unlike you, LANDON, your dad looks like
he really is tough.
See you around!
I have here an EGG.
I'd hoped to hatch it by covering it in
hot sand by the hot springs.=But that doesn't seem to be enough...
I've heard it would be best if it were
kept together with POKéMON and=carried about.
You are a TRAINER, yes?
And your POKéMON radiate vitality.
So, what say you?
Will you take this EGG to hatch?
Good! I hope you'll walk plenty with
this here EGG!
LANDON received the EGG.
Oh? You've too many POKéMON.
There's no room for this EGG...
As you wish, then...
If you have a change of heart about
hatching this EGG, I will be here.
Every so often, an EGG will be found at
the POKéMON DAY CARE.
Or at least that's how the rumor goes.
We draw as much hot water as we need,
and yet the hot springs never run dry.
Isn't it magical?
These hot springs appear near active
volcanoes. Veins of water under the=ground are heated by magma to well up=as hot springs.
Being buried in this hot sand is...
Sigh...
So warm and heavenly...
Eh? Gyaah! Ouch!
A POKéMON nipped my backside!
Oh, you like hot springs, do you?
That's surprising for one as young
as you.
I bathe in the hot springs every day.
I want to become a beautiful and strong
GYM LEADER like FLANNERY.
If people put POKéMON in hot springs,
it might be seriously strange.
Why, it might be an electric bath, or
a bubble bath, or even a lava bath...
They're claiming that these hot springs
are good for calming nervous tension,=relieving aching muscles, solving=romantic problems, and attracting=money...

But there's one man.
He's trying to dig the tunnel by himself!
There was a man who dug a tunnel for

I don't really get it, but hey!

There's a guy in there who's trying to

Since we're here, let's have a quick
battle!
I'll give you a taste of what being a

Wow! That's great!
LANDON
, you're pretty good!
MAY: I think I know why my dad has an
eye out for you now.
I mean, you just got that POKéMON but
it already likes you.
You might be able to befriend any
kind of POKéMON easily.
Well, it's time to head back to the

BRENDAN: Okay, so it's this one and
that one that live on ROUTE 103...
Hey, it's LANDON!
...Oh, yeah, Dad gave you a POKéMON.
Since we're here, how about a little
battle?
I'll teach you what being a TRAINER's
about!
Huh, LANDON, you're not too shabby.
BRENDAN: I think I get it.

Look, your POKéMON already likes you,
even though you just got it.
LANDON, I get the feeling that you
could befriend any POKéMON with ease.

That seaside cottage is where
MR. BRINEY lives.
He was once a mighty sailor who never
feared the sea, however stormy.
The sea, huh?
I wonder what it's like at the bottom
of the sea?
If you're going to throw a POKé BALL,
weaken the wild POKéMON first.
It will be easier to catch if it's been
poisoned, burned, or lulled to sleep.
You're a thief if you try to steal
someone else's POKéMON.
You should throw POKé BALLS only at
wild POKéMON.
Oh, no, I'm not a TRAINER.
But that's right, if TRAINERS lock eyes,
it's a challenge to battle.
If you don't want to battle, stay out
of their sight.
I like filling my mouth with seeds,
then spitting them out fast!
You can have this, so you try it out!
Use it on a POKéMON, and it will learn
a move for firing seeds rapidly.
A word of advice!
A TM, TECHNICAL MACHINE, is good only
for one-time use.
Once you use it, it's gone.
Think twice before using it!

Yo, TRAINERS!
Whether you're hot to trot,=or cool cat not,=chill at my papa's spot!
Little kids can dart around so quickly...
You don't dare take your eyes off them
for an instant. It's very taxing.
Mine's with my POKéMON, so they should
be okay, but...
Our sand castle's taking a long time
to make.
You can have this!
We're going to get all the sand from

And then we're going to be a king and
queen.

The water around these parts is clean.
But, I get my ZIGZAGOON to pick up

back to haunt us eventually.

MAY: Hi, LANDON
, long time no see!
While I was searching for other
POKéMON, my POKéMON grew stronger.
So...
How about a little battle?
Yikes!
You're better than I expected!
MAY: LANDON
, you've been busy
training, too, haven't you?
I think you deserve a reward!
This is from me!
MAY: That's an ITEMFINDER.
Try it out. If there is an item that's
not visible, it emits a sound.
Okay, LANDON
, let's meet again!
I know it's a little silly coming from
me, but I think you should train a lot=harder for the next time.
BRENDAN: Hey, LANDON.
So this is where you were.=How's it going?
Have you been raising your POKéMON?
I'll check for you.
Hmm...
You're pretty good.
BRENDAN: LANDON, you've trained
without me noticing...
Good enough!
Here, take this.
BRENDAN: That's an ITEMFINDER.
Use it to root around for items that
aren't visible.
If it senses something, it emits a
sound.
Anyway, I'm off to look for new
POKéMON.
Wouldn't it be great to ride a BIKE
at full speed on CYCLING ROAD?
How do you like the way my raven-
colored hair streams behind me?
I grew my hair out just for that.
Oh, hey, you got that BIKE from RYDEL!
Oh, it's glaringly obvious.
It says right on your bike...

You should ride it around all over
the place - it's good advertising!
The two roads, one above, one below...
A road each for people and POKéMON.
Perhaps that is right and fair.
I don't have a BIKE, so I'll take a
leisurely walk on the low road.
Learning techniques will make BIKE
riding even more fun.
There are some places that you can
reach only by using a BIKE technique.
Which should I choose?
Make a beeline for MAUVILLE on
CYCLING ROAD, or take the low road=and look for POKéMON?

Bravo! Splendid showing!
Your love of cycling comes from deep
within your heart.=You've shaken me to my very soul!
Your technique is remarkable.
I suggest you slow down just enough
to avoid collisions.
I would consider you a work in
progress.
Still, I hope you don't forget the
sheer pleasure of cycling.
My word... Your cycling skills border
on terrifying.
Most certainly, you need much more
practice riding.
...I am aghast...
You're perhaps not cut out for this
unfortunate cycling business.
You ought to give serious thought to
returning that BIKE to RYDEL.
This is CYCLING ROAD.
If you were to ride from MAUVILLE to
SLATEPORT on a MACH BIKE, you would=be rated for the number of collisions=and your total time.
Regardless of the results, I count on
seeing more challenges from you.=Always aim higher!
On this CYCLING ROAD, those riding
MACH BIKES are rated for their number=of collisions and their total times.
ACRO BIKES do not qualify for rating.
They are easy to turn, so it's not fair.

You must be quite the TRAINER to beat
my husband, though.
It's my turn to battle now!
Oh, gosh!
I can't get over how strong you are!
There's a strong TRAINER here!
This one's really strong!
You're stronger than Mommy? Wow!
But I'm strong, too!
Really! Honestly!
Huh? Did I just lose?
This stinks...

How dare you make my granddaughter

For that, I'm going to smack you!
Prepare to lose!
Kwah! You are strong...

What's going on?
I was digging the tunnel without any
tools when some goon ordered me out!
That tunnel's filled with POKéMON
that react badly to loud noises.=They could cause an uproar.
That's why we stopped using heavy
equipment for tunneling...
I'm worried that the goon will do
something stupid and startle the=POKéMON into an uproar.

LANDON
In this vast world, there are many

Do you raise different types?
Or do you raise only POKéMON of a=certain type?
What do you think as a TRAINER?
Sorry, it's not my place to ask, is it?
Well, anyway, I hope to see you
again.
Hmm!
A GOOD ROD is really good!
Wouldn't you agree?
Hmm!
We're of identical minds!

Wherever there's water, try your luck

Of course you are! Go!
Achah!
LANDON

I was worried that you might be

MAY: But I had absolutely nothing to
worry about! Keep it up!
And, here! I have a present for you.
MAY: Use FLY, and your POKéMON will

But, to use FLY, you have to get the

You should FLY home and visit

I bet your mom's worried about you,
LANDON
Well, let's meet again somewhere!
BRENDAN: LANDON! So this is where
you've been looking for POKéMON?
Let me see how good you got.
I'll test you!
Now!
It's a battle, so battle!
Hmm...
You've gotten pretty darn decent.

Here, I'll give you this.
Try it out.
BRENDAN: Use FLY, and your POKéMON

Hey, you! Please don't go near the

Well then, here.
I'll give you this.
BRENDAN: You know it's more fun to

If I find any cool POKéMON, you bet
I'll try to get them with POKé BALLS.
Hey, your BAG's full.
BRENDAN: Where should I look for
POKéMON next...
It's a serious-looking machine.
The PROF must use this for research.
It's a PC used for research.
Better not mess around with it.
It's crammed with books on POKéMON.
It's a book that's too hard to read.
When a POKéMON battle starts, the one
at the left of the list goes out first.
So, when you get more POKéMON in your
party, try switching around the order=of your POKéMON.
It could give you an advantage.
When POKéMON battle, they eventually
level up and become stronger.
If the POKéMON with you become
stronger, you'll be able to go farther=away from here.
That PC in the corner there is
for any POKéMON TRAINER to use.
Naturally, that means you're welcome
to use it, too.
POKéMON CENTERS are great!
You can use their services as much
as you like, and it's all for free.=You never have to worry!
The POKéMON CABLE CLUB on the second
floor was built recently.
But they say they're still making
adjustments.
The POKéMON CABLE CLUB on the second

I traded POKéMON right away.
The clerk says they're all sold out.
I can't buy any POKé BALLS.
I'm going to buy a bunch of POKé BALLS
and catch a bunch of POKéMON!
If a POKéMON gets hurt and loses its HP
and faints, it won't be able to battle.
To prevent your POKéMON from fainting,
restore its HP with a POTION.
There's a lot to be said for living on
a small island like this in harmony with=POKéMON and the family.

ZIGZAGOON: Guguuh!
There's a stone cavern at the edge
of town.
I've heard you can find rare stones

Even if a POKéMON faints and can't
battle, it can still use a move learned=from a Hidden Machine, HM.

How could I lose so easily?
I'm not going to waste this loss.
I'll use it to motivate me to train!
One day I'll become a GYM LEADER...
No, I'll become the POKéMON LEAGUE

Don't you dare brush me off!
It's not my fault if you cry!
Waaaaaaah!

from BRAWLY.
The KNUCKLE BADGE makes all POKéMON
up to Level 30, even those you get in=trades, obey without question.
And, you'll be able to use the HM move
FLASH outside of battle.
If you'd like, use this TECHNICAL
MACHINE, too.
That TM08 contains BULK UP.
It's a move that raises both ATTACK
and DEFENSE stats.
I can see your talent becoming a giant
wave to cause a storm of astonishment=among TRAINERS one day!

I'm teaching my POKéMON about

Oh!
So, my hunch was right!

It's not easy for an older fellow like

Spot on, my friend!
We shall be the

Isn't that a ripe image?
Hahahah!
For me, SLUDGE BOMB is at the peak
of popularity. It's the one.
Hunh? You're telling me that you don't
know about SLUDGE BOMB?
That's outright pitiful.
I'll give you one.
I love SLUDGE BOMB.
But POKéMON with the
"2=move are in, too.
Gorge your eyes on this!
It's a SILK SCARF. It's right at the
cutting edge of fashion, yeah!
Oh, I can see your eyes twinkling!
You appreciate my dazzling style!
Oh, you're a delight!
Here you go. I want you to have it!
Oh, you don't have room?
Now, listen tight, this SCARF is a must-
have! Why, I would sell all my items=in order to get it!
The SILK SCARF raises the power of
NORMAL-type moves.
It's a marvelous SCARF that will go
with almost all POKéMON!
Wow, you bothered to cross the sea
to visit DEWFORD?
Did you maybe come here because you
heard about BRAWLY?
He's so cool...
Everyone idolizes him.
Welcome to the HERB SHOP, home of
effective and inexpensive medicine!
You've come to look at herbal medicine
in LAVARIDGE?
That's rather commendable.
I like you! Take this!
That CHARCOAL I gave you, it's used
for making herbal medicine.
It also does wonders when held by
a POKéMON.
It intensifies the power of FIRE-type
moves.
Herbal medicine works impressively well.
But your POKéMON will dislike you for it.=It must be horribly bitter!
Hey, how's it going, CHAMPION-
bound LANDON?
LAVARIDGE's GYM LEADER FLANNERY
uses FIRE-type POKéMON.
Her passion for POKéMON burns stronger
and hotter than a volcano.
Don't get too close to her - you'll burn!
Hose her down with water and then=go for it!
Yow! That was a scorching hot battle!
Owowowowow!
Yikes, it's hot!
I'm blinded by sweat in my eyes...
Being buried in hot sand promotes
circulation.
It's effective for healing pain in
your joints.
I'm trying to relieve my stress.
Don't come along and stress me out!
I hope FLANNERY flames you good!
Haaah... Whew...
If you spend too much time buried in
hot sand, it tuckers you out...
You must be getting tired by now.
You'd like to rest in the hot sand,=wouldn't you?
But you should know that maintaining
your willpower is an important ability=for all TRAINERS.
Play with fire, and be burned...
Your skill is real...
But our LEADER FLANNERY is strong.
If you don't watch yourself, you'll be
burned seriously.
Can your POKéMON withstand
392-degree heat?
It didn't burn hotly enough...
The temperature of magma is
392 degrees.
Your POKéMON beat me, so they should
easily survive in magma.
Um...
Okay, I'll battle with you.
Oh, but you're too strong.
I'm going to be a pretty and strong
TRAINER just like FLANNERY.
Welcome... No, wait.
Puny TRAINER, how good to see you've
made it here!
I have been entrusted with the...
No, wait.
I am FLANNERY, and I'm the GYM
LEADER here!
Uh...
Dare not underestimate me, though=I have been LEADER only a short time!
With skills inherited from my grand-
father, I shall, uh...demonstrate the=hot moves we have honed on this land!
Oh...
I guess I was trying too hard...
I... I've only recently become a GYM
LEADER.
I tried too hard to be someone I'm not.
I have to do things my natural way.
If I don't, my POKéMON will be confused.
Thanks for teaching me that.
For that, you deserve this.
LANDON received the HEAT BADGE
from FLANNERY.
If you have a HEAT BADGE, all POKéMON
up to Level 50, even those you get in=trades from other people, will obey=you completely.
And, it lets POKéMON use the HM move
STRENGTH outside of battle.
This is a token of my appreciation.
Don't be shy about taking it!
That TM50 contains OVERHEAT.
That move inflicts serious damage on
the opponent.
But it also sharply cuts the SP. ATK
of the POKéMON using it. It might not=be suitable for longer battles.
Your power reminds me of someone...
Oh! I know! You battle like NORMAN,
the GYM LEADER of PETALBURG.
LAVARIDGE TOWN POKéMON GYM
LAVARIDGE TOWN POKéMON GYM
FLANNERY'S CERTIFIED TRAINERS:
LANDON
My wife's warming an EGG in the hot
springs. This is what she told me.
She left two POKéMON with the DAY CARE.
And they discovered that EGG!
ZIGZAGOON: Pshoo!
Use X SPEED to add to a POKéMON's
SPEED in battle.
That will help it get in the first
strike - a decided advantage!
On MT. CHIMNEY's peak, there's a local
specialty that you can buy only there.
Give it to a POKéMON - it will be elated.
I think POKéMON get closer to their
TRAINERS if they spend time together.
The longer the better.
That's what I think.
I gave a RED
to my POKéMON.
It looks a lot cooler all of a sudden.
Hmm...
Maybe I ought to eat a RED
Hohoho! Hey, kid, you can reach
the hot springs from here.
If POKéMON are getting rest, so too
should their TRAINERS.
I'm having a hard time deciding if I
should make my SKITTY evolve or not.
I only have to use this MOON STONE,
but it's so hard to decide...
If I make it evolve, it will become
much stronger.
But it will look so different, too.
SKITTY: Miyao?
This NUGGET I found here...
I suppose I'll have to sell it, seeing=as how it has no other use.
They had a sketch of my POKéMON up
on the wall over there, but they=changed it with a new one already.
I'm going to enter my HANA in CONTESTS
so we can get her sketch up again!
Hi, are you making any
You should come by with a bunch of
BERRIES sometime.
You see how they display a sketch of
a CONTEST winner here?
I sketch them!
If any of your POKéMON wins a CONTEST,
I'd gladly make a sketch of it!
Hello! Congratulations!
I've put up a sketch of your POKéMON
right here for everyone to see!
We do all right in the preliminary round,
but we can never win the appeals...
Maybe it means I have to watch what
other contestants are doing...
See!
My POKéMON won all these RIBBONS!
Have your POKéMON earned any RIBBONS?
You can check them on your POKéNAV.
I can't beat GYM LEADERS...
I can't win any CONTESTS...
I've been here, there, and everywhere,
and it's all for naught...
POKéMON CONTESTS
SUPER RANK STAGE!
Oh, hello.
You are?
Okay, your name's LANDON
I can see that you're a TRAINER.
So that means you use the POKéMON
Storage System I developed.
How I arrived at that conclusion is
a simple deductive process.
You spoke to me because you wanted
to access something on this PC.
Oh, I'm sorry. I'm LANETTE.
Honestly, I'm glad to meet you - it's
great you're using the Storage System.
If you could, please visit me at home.
My house is on ROUTE 114.
I wonder what POKéMON looked like
long, long ago?
Maybe the FOSSIL MANIAC at the edge
of town will know.
In the fields of FALLARBOR, we plant
seedlings of hardy trees that thrive=even in volcanic ash.
PROF. COZMO: Oh...
I never should have let myself be=conned into telling TEAM @
where=you can find METEORITES...
That METEORITE from METEOR FALLS...
It's never going to be mine now...
Oh!
Hah?
That item...
Could it be?
Is it the METEORITE that TEAM @
took from METEOR FALLS?
Please, may I have it?
I'm not asking for it for free.
How about in exchange for this TM?
PROF. COZMO: This TM, it represents
my feeling of gratitude.=Please use it!
PROF. COZMO: Oh, I can't believe it.
This is really, really great!
This is really going to help my research!
PROF. COZMO: Oh, but...
I'm crushed with disappointment...
PROF. COZMO: Please, may I have that
METEORITE?
I'm not asking for it for free.
How about in exchange for this TM?
PROF. COZMO went off to METEOR FALLS
on ROUTE 114 with some people from=TEAM @
Poor PROF. COZMO...
He's so depressed... I feel sorry for him.
Look at PROF. COZMO...
He's so happy! I think it's cute.
I'm the MOVE TUTOR.
I know all the moves that POKéMON
learn - every one of them - and I can=teach POKéMON those moves.
I can teach a move to a POKéMON
of yours if you'd like.
I'll do it for a HEART SCALE.
I'm collecting those now.
Oh! That's it! That's an honest to
goodness HEART SCALE!
Let me guess, you want me to teach
a move?
Which POKéMON needs tutoring?
Which move should I teach?
Sorry...
It doesn't appear as if I have any move
I can teach that POKéMON.
LANDON handed over one HEART SCALE
in exchange.
If your POKéMON need to learn a move,
come back with a HEART SCALE.
Hunh? There isn't a single move that
I can teach an EGG.
I went in through the entrance and
took a look around the CONTEST hall.
Getting up on that big stage...
It's going to be tense!
Oh, my love for POKéMON...
The attraction they evoke in me...
Whoops!
You weren't meant to see that!=Well, anyway.
If you're entering a CONTEST, try this
move on for size.
My feelings for POKéMON...
Oh, they attract me so...
Which CONTEST are you planning on
entering?
If you're entering a COOL CONTEST,
a cool POKéMON has to be the one!
Pick a POKéMON worthy of the CONTEST
theme, and make sure it has the=right set of moves to match.
That's fundamental!
Which CONTEST are you entering?
Want a piece of advice?
In any CONTEST, for example, a CUTE
CONTEST, I don't think they judge you=only on cuteness in the first round.
You need to work out ways for raising
POKéMON better.
I raised my POKéMON to be cute.
I found out you can put POKéMON in
a CONTEST for cuteness!
I'm so glad I raised my POKéMON with
loving care...
My POKéMON rules!
It's cool, tough yet beautiful, cute,
and smart. It's complete!
I may as well go for wins in every
single CONTEST.
POKéMON CONTESTS
NORMAL RANK STAGE!
For any POKéMON match, X SPECIAL
is crucial.
It jacks up the power of some moves
even though it's only for one battle.
They don't sell any items that will let
you win CONTESTS...
It means you have to raise POKéMON
diligently on an everyday basis.
The NEST BALL works better on
weakened POKéMON.
VERDANTURF is the only place you can
buy it.
I daresay a TRAINER isn't qualified if
POKéMON aren't settled and friendly.=Have you given them any
Let me hazard a guess why you're in
VERDANTURF. The reason: CONTESTS.
All CONTEST challenges originate here.
WALLY: I lost to you, LANDON, but I'm
not feeling down anymore.
Because I have a new purpose in life.
Together with my RALTS, I'm going=to challenge POKéMON GYMS and become=a great TRAINER.
Please watch me, LANDON.
I'm going to be stronger than you.
When I do, I'm going to challenge you
to another battle.
WALLY: Please watch me, LANDON.
I'm going to get stronger than you.
When I do, I'm going to challenge you
to another battle.
UNCLE: Oh! LANDON
WALLY's next door.
But, boy, there's something I have to
tell you.
This natural environment is doing
wonders for WALLY's health.
Maybe it's not just the environment.
It could be POKéMON that are giving the=boy hope.
WALLY's gone away...
He slipped off on his own...
UNCLE: Is that right?
WALLY's gone away that far all by=himself...
Well, I have to give him credit - he is
my little brother's son.
WANDA: You are?
Oh, right, I get it!
You're the LANDON who WALLY was
telling me about.
I'm WALLY's cousin.
Glad to meet you!
I think WALLY's become a lot more lively
and healthy since he came here.
WANDA: Don't worry about WALLY.
He'll be just fine.
I know my little cousin, and he has
POKéMON with him, too.
Thanks to you, I can see my girlfriend
every day.=Happy? You bet I am!
My daughter's boyfriend is a very
driven and passionate sort of person.
He's been digging a tunnel nonstop
just so he can see my daughter.
My daughter's a little concerned,
so she goes out to the tunnel a lot.
It's amazing. My daughter's boyfriend
was digging the tunnel by hand!
It's so incredible!
If anything were to happen to WALLY,
I would never be able to look his=parents in PETALBURG in the eye...
WALLY was in EVER GRANDE?
His parents in PETALBURG would be
astonished to hear that!
Let me see your POKéMON.
I'll check to see how much it likes you.
Oh.
Your POKéMON...
It adores you.
It can't possibly love you any more.=I even feel happy seeing it.
It seems to be very happy.
It obviously likes you a whole lot.
It likes you quite a lot.
It seems to want to be babied a little.
It's getting used to you.
It seems to believe in you.
It's not very used to you yet.
It neither loves nor hates you.
It's very wary.
It has scary viciousness in its eyes.=It doesn't like you much at all.
This is a little hard for me to say...
Your POKéMON simply detests you.
Doesn't that make you uncomfortable?
PIKACHU: Pika pika!
Far away, deep in EVER GRANDE CITY,
is the POKéMON LEAGUE.
The TRAINERS who gather there are
all frighteningly well skilled.
In the POKéMON LEAGUE, I think the
rules say that you have to battle the=ELITE FOUR all in a row.
If you lose to any of them, you have
to begin your challenge again from the=first one.
What color is your TRAINER'S CARD?
Mine's copper!
PACIFIDLOG TOWN floats on top of
a colony of CORSOLA.
If I told you that, would you believe me?
The ancestors of the people in
PACIFIDLOG were said to have been=born on boats and then lived and died =aboard them.
I understand that they lived that way
because they were searching for=something.
In the HOENN region, there are three
POKéMON that represent the power of=rock, ice, and steel.
Each of them is said to hide away deep
inside caves.
That's the story I heard when I was
just a little kid.
"Six dots open three doors."2
Grandpa used to say that, but I don't
know what he meant.
Er-hem!
I am the POKéMON FAN CLUB's most
important person, the CHAIRMAN's=younger brother.
I'm here enjoying my vacation with
POKéMON, yes, indeed.
Ah!
Your POKéMON...
It clearly likes you very much.
A POKéMON that adoring and adorable
deserves a TM like this, no?
Hmm...
It's not bad, but it's also not good.
You, as the TRAINER, need to put in
some more effort.
It has a vicious look to it.
A frightening POKéMON like that
deserves a TM like this.
If a POKéMON likes you a lot, RETURN's
power is enhanced.
If it doesn't like you, FRUSTRATION's
power goes up.
Oh, yes. In about @
or so days,
I should be getting a good TM or two.
You should come see me then.
I'll give you a TM that's suitable for=your POKéMON.
AZURILL: Rurii.
It appears to be very friendly with the
TRAINER.
AZURILL: Rururi!
It doesn't appear to like the TRAINER
very much.
Hello, TRAINER. Would you do me a favor
and trade POKéMON with me?
Living in PACIFIDLOG, I can only catch
certain kinds of POKéMON.
? Do you have one?
I'll trade you my @
for it.
Wow!
This @
is so fluffy!
That's no @
I'm a little disappointed...
Since we traded, you and me,
we're friends, aren't we?
Is that a POKéDEX?
Did you get to meet a lot of different
POKéMON?
I wish I was like you.
People were saying they saw a POKéMON
FLYING high above HOENN.
Is it FLYING around all the time?
Doesn't it need to rest somewhere?
A sky POKéMON!
A sky POKéMON!
Where did you come from?
Yes?
YES TOWN?
I've never heard of a place like that.
No? That doesn't make any sense.
You have to come from somewhere.
Oh! Wait! You're not going to say you
were born at the bottom of the sea?
I can't see MIRAGE ISLAND today...
Oh! Oh my!
I can see MIRAGE ISLAND today!
MIRAGE ISLAND...
It must become visible and invisible
depending on the weather conditions=that make mirages appear.
Or is it really appearing and
disappearing?
You're...
Ah, you must be LANDON
, right?
Thank you for playing with WALLY a
little while ago.
He's been frail and sickly ever
since he was a baby.
We've sent him to stay with my relatives
in VERDANTURF TOWN for a while.
The air is a lot cleaner there
than it is here.
What's that? Where's WALLY?
He's already left, our WALLY.
I wonder where he could have
gotten by now?
I wonder how our WALLY is doing?
Hi there, LANDON
Our WALLY's become very healthy
since he went to VERDANTURF TOWN.
We owe it all to you!
When WALLY left town, you helped
him catch a POKéMON, right?
I think that made WALLY really
happy.
Actually, not just WALLY.
It made me, his father, happy too.
Happy that he's got such a great
friend as you.
This isn't a bribe or anything, but
I'd really like you to have this.
If your POKéMON can SURF, you'll be
able to go to all sorts of places.
WALLY's coming home soon.
I'm looking forward to that.
Oh? You met WALLY in EVER GRANDE
CITY?
Oh, LANDON
, don't be silly.
He may have gotten healthy, but he
can't go somewhere far away like=that all by himself.
WALLY was really happy when he told
us that he caught a POKéMON.
It's been ages since I've seen him
smile like that.
Oh, hello, LANDON! We've got
something we want you to have.
My husband has it, so please have a
word with him, dear.
I want you to keep this a secret
from my husband...
But our WALLY left VERDANTURF TOWN
without telling anyone.
You know, WALLY is frail, but
he's surprisingly strong-willed.
I'm sure that he'll come back safe
and sound one day!
DAD: Hm?
Well, if it isn't LANDON!
So you're all finished moving in?
I'm surprised that you managed to
get here by yourself.
Oh, I see.
You're with your POKéMON.
Hm... Then I guess you're going to
become a TRAINER like me, LANDON.
That's great news!
I'll be looking forward to it!
Um... I... I'd like to get a
POKéMON, please...
DAD: Hm? You're... Uh... Oh, right.
You're WALLY, right?
WALLY: I'm going to go stay with my
relatives in VERDANTURF TOWN.
I thought I would be lonely by myself,
so I wanted to take a POKéMON along.
But I've never caught a POKéMON before.
I don't know how...
DAD: Hm. I see.
DAD: LANDON, you heard that,
right?
Go with WALLY and make sure that he
safely catches a POKéMON.
WALLY, here, I'll loan you my POKéMON.
WALLY received a ZIGZAGOON!
WALLY: Oh, wow!
A POKéMON!
DAD: Hm. I'll give you a POKé BALL, too.
Go for it!
WALLY received a POKé BALL!
WALLY: Oh, wow!
Thank you!
LANDON... Would you really come
with me?
DAD: So, did it work out?
WALLY: Thank you, yes, it did.
Here's your POKéMON back.
LANDON, thank you for coming along
with me.
You two are why I was able to catch
my POKéMON.
I promise I'll take really good
care of it.
Oh! My mom's waiting for me, so I
have to go!
Bye, LANDON!
DAD: Now...
LANDON, if you want to become a
strong TRAINER, here's my advice.
Head for RUSTBORO CITY beyond this
town.
There, you should challenge the GYM
LEADER, ROXANNE.
After her, go on to other POKéMON
GYMS and defeat their LEADERS.
Collect BADGES from them,
understood?
Of course, I'm a GYM LEADER, too.
We'll battle one day, LANDON.
But that's only after you become
stronger, LANDON.
DAD: Hm? Aren't you going to the
POKéMON GYM in RUSTBORO CITY?
There's no challenge for me to
battle a greenhorn TRAINER.
LANDON, I want you to challenge me
when you become a lot stronger.
I'll battle you, LANDON, when you
can show me four GYM BADGES, okay?
DAD: I see... So, you've beaten the
GYM LEADER in RUSTBORO CITY.
But there are many more TRAINERS
who are stronger than you, LANDON.
Across the sea in DEWFORD TOWN is a
GYM LEADER named BRAWLY.
You should go challenge him.
DAD: Hm... LANDON, you have gotten
stronger.
I can tell by the number of BADGES
that you've earned.
DAD: Hm...
So, you did get four GYM BADGES.
Fine, as I promised, we will have a
POKéMON battle.
LANDON...
I'm so happy that I can have a
real battle with my own child.
But, a battle is a battle!
I will do everything in my power as
a GYM LEADER to win.
LANDON, you'd better give it your
best shot, too!
...
I... I can't...
I can't believe it. LANDON...
I lost to LANDON?
But, rules are rules!
Here, take this.
LANDON received the BALANCE BADGE
from DAD!
DAD: With that BADGE, the DEFENSE
of all your POKéMON will increase.
POKéMON that know the HM move SURF
will be able to travel over water.
This is my gift to you. LANDON, I'm
sure you can use it correctly.
DAD: TM42 contains FACADE.
It doubles the power of moves if
the POKéMON is poisoned, paralyzed,=or burned.
It might be able to turn a bad
situation into an advantage.
DAD: As the GYM LEADER, I can't
express how upset I am...
But as a father, it makes me both
happy and a little sad. It's odd...
DAD: Oh, yes...
WALLY's parents came calling
earlier.
They said that they had something
they wanted to give you, LANDON.
DAD: LANDON, you should go visit
your mother every so often.
I'm going to stay here and redouble
my training.
It would bother me as a TRAINER to
not avenge my loss to you, LANDON!
DAD: LANDON, how are things going?
The world of POKéMON is deep.
I honestly think that no amount of
training would ever be enough.
Hey, how's it going, CHAMPION-
bound LANDON?
The doors in this GYM open when you
beat the awaiting TRAINERS.
Whoops! The doors in this room are
already open, so don't attack me!
The TRAINERS of PETALBURG GYM use
all kinds of items.
The door at the left leads to the
SPEED ROOM.
The door at the right leads to the
ACCURACY ROOM.
The room's name will be on the
door, so choose carefully.
Once you've chosen the door...
Well, hey, go for it!
LANDON! Whoa! You've overcome even
your own father!
Like, whoa!
What a stunning turn of events!
The ability to attack before the
opponent...
Just that alone puts me at a great
advantage, don't you agree?
That was a magnificent battle!
Go on to the next room where a new
challenge awaits you.
At the left is the ZERO REDUCTION
ROOM.
The right door leads to the DEFENSE
ROOM.
Whomever you beat, and whomever you
may lose to, you never shirk from=training yourself and your POKéMON.
That's what I think being a
GYM LEADER is all about.
Don't waste your time trying to
lower my POKéMON's abilities!
My POKéMON's abilities weren't
harmed, but I still lost...
The next room is the STRENGTH ROOM.
Can you withstand brute force?
After you beat our LEADER, the
training has become a lot tougher.
Just when you think you're going to
win, your opponent restores HP...
Can you just imagine how awful that
must feel?
I'll show you exactly how awful it
feels!
I couldn't restore HP enough...
What ATTACK power...
I should have expected no less from
our LEADER's kid.
No, wait! A TRAINER's abilities are
earned only through effort.
I lost because my own efforts
weren't enough.
Go on! The ONE-HIT KO ROOM is next.
I'm going to keep training at GYMS.
One day, I'll become a LEADER.
I'm not going to take it easy just
because you're our LEADER's kid.
I'll show you how horrid it is for
a POKéMON to take a critical hit!
Your power...
You're the real deal.
Your father really is strong. He's
a TRAINER worth my respect.
And, I sense the same glow coming
from you as your father.
I hope that you'll stage a terrific
battle with your father!
Since your dad became the LEADER,
the TRAINERS of PETALBURG CITY have=become a lot tougher.
Giggle...
This is the ACCURACY ROOM.
It's pretty nasty when every attack
lands without fail.
You were a cut above me...
There are some even stronger
TRAINERS waiting for you.
The left is the DEFENSE ROOM, and
the right is the RECOVERY ROOM.
Your POKéMON's ATTACK power will be
on trial either way.
Do you know what we're trying to
achieve as TRAINERS?
We're striving to become soul mates
with our POKéMON.
The higher the DEFENSE, the more
reckless I can be in attack.
Our defenses weren't enough...
I think you've taught me a valuable
lesson here.
Now, go on! The left door goes to
the STRENGTH ROOM.
The right door opens to the
ONE-HIT KO ROOM.
Both of them have TRAINERS who are
offensively skilled.
Hi! Have you tried using SURF?
Our GYM LEADER told us to go all out
and beat you.
Even if you happen to be the
LEADER's kid!
But... I went all out!
The way you use your POKéMON...
It's like your father's style.
Go on through! The GYM LEADER, your
father, is waiting!
Sure, it's fine to make your POKéMON
stronger.
But what decides the winner?
Why, it's the feelings TRAINERS have for
their POKéMON.

PETALBURG CITY POKéMON GYM
PETALBURG CITY POKéMON GYM
NORMAN'S CERTIFIED TRAINERS:
LANDON
Traveling is wonderful!
When I was young, I roamed the seas
and the mountains!
Sigh...
I wish I could go on an adventure
with some POKéMON...
Crawl through some damp grass...
Climb rocky, rugged mountains...
Cross the raging seas...
Wander about in dark caves...
And, sometimes, even get a little
homesick...
It must be fabulous to travel!
NORMAN became our town's new GYM
LEADER.
I think he called his family over from
the JOHTO region.
I battled NORMAN once, but, whew,
he was way too strong.
How would I put it?
I just got the feeling that he
lives for POKéMON.
That PC-based POKéMON storage
system...
Whoever made it must be some kind
of a scientific wizard!
When my POKéMON ate an
ORAN BERRY, it regained HP!
There are many types of POKéMON.
All types have their strengths and
weaknesses against other types.
Depending on the types of POKéMON,
a battle could be easy or hard.
For example, your TREECKO is a
GRASS type.
It's strong against the WATER and
GROUND types.
But, it's weak against FIRE-type
POKéMON.
For example, your TORCHIC is a
FIRE type.
It's strong against the GRASS and
BUG types.
But, it's weak against WATER-type
POKéMON.
For example, your MUDKIP is a
WATER type.
It's strong against the FIRE type.
But, it's weak against GRASS-type
and ELECTRIC-type POKéMON.
Even if a POKéMON is weak now,
it will grow stronger.
The most important thing is love!
Love for your POKéMON!
Do you use REPEL?
It keeps POKéMON away, so it's=useful when you're in a hurry.
Do you have any ANTIDOTES with
you?
If you walk around with a poisoned
POKéMON, it will lose HP until it faints.=Take some ANTIDOTES with you.
Umm... If this goes here, and that
goes over there...
Then where does this thing go?
And what about that doohickey?
Aaargh! I can't make heads or tails
of this!
Hm?
Hi, I'm DOCK.
CAPT. STERN commissioned me to
design a ferry.
Oh! That there...
Are they DEVON GOODS?
But, hmm...
This won't do...
CAPT. STERN went off somewhere.
He said he had some work to do.
Could I get you to go find CAPT.
STERN and deliver that to him?
DOCK: Where could CAPT. STERN have
gone off to?
Could you go find CAPT. STERN and
deliver that parcel to him?
DOCK: Shipbuilding is an art.
A lot of things can't be figured out
just by calculating.
I really could use advice from a veteran
who knows the seas...
DOCK: Hi! MR. BRINEY's joined us to
lend us his help.
Thanks to the veteran sailor, the
ferry is steadily coming together.
DOCK: The ferry is finally ready!
The new S.S. TIDAL is truly a marvel
of technology!
But, I get the feeling that we can
make something even better.
You know, there's never an end to
technology's march.
MR. BRINEY: Ah, LANDON
It's been too long!
Aye, since I met you, this old seadog's
been feeling frisky!
So I've decided to help DOCK make a
ferry.
Aye, after all, a ferry would be able
to carry a lot of people.
But, you know, that DOCK is really
something special.
With his knack for technology and
my experience, I'm sure that we can=build one great ship, aye!
PEEKO: Pii piihyoro!
The seasons, the weather, where the
moon sits in the sky...
These and other conditions make the
sea change its expression.
That's right!
The sea is like a living thing!
I get seasick real easily.
So I get to help out here instead.
Designing a large ship is more like
making a big building than putting=together a transportation vehicle.
Don't you think it's strange that a
ship made of heavy iron floats?
It floats because of a principle
called buoyancy.
The sea between SLATEPORT and
PACIFIDLOG has a fast-running tide.
Ordinary ships can't make headway
through there.
You'd need substantial propulsion
to plow through those waters...
I want to raise a POKéMON that's
the ultimate in "great"2 for both=battles and CONTESTS.
It's vexing, trying to figure out
which moves I should make it learn.
Do any of your friends have any
BERRIES?
You can use that BERRY BLENDER and
make
S with your friends!
You should try it - it's a lot of fun!
I have two, so you can have one!
Make
S and put them in there.
When you make a
, everyone
has to put in a different BERRY.
If you win a CONTEST, they put up a
poster of your POKéMON on the wall.
It will have a portrait of your
POKéMON and both your names.
Want a tasty little bit of advice
for CONTESTS?
Using a certain move after another
certain kind of move sometimes gets=you extra attention.
If you know what you're doing, you
can score big in appeal.
Of course, your opponents might try
disrupting your POKéMON's showing.
My papa, he's a CONTEST JUDGE.
I wonder what I should be when I
grow up, a JUDGE or a GYM LEADER?
Hey, man, I'm like majorly cheesed,
you know. Like, you know, I just=wanted to know why my POKéMON=never won, you know, like, hey?
So, like, I gave the JUDGE my two
cents, you know, they're free.
And he wouldn't hear me out, like, hey!
So, like, total bummer, man!
Hey, like, you! Zip it, you know?
Just, you know, take this!
That's, like, TM41, you know?
Hey, it's TORMENT, you hearing me?
Like, it won't let the other guy
use the same move twice in a row, see?
Hey, now, you listen here, like,
I'm not laying a torment on you!
MC: Oh, my, my!
Now isn't that a dandy of a POKéMON?
Please! Do step right up and take
part in our splendid CONTESTS!
You'll do well! I'm sure of it!
My eyes have never failed me!
JUDGE: Well, hello there!
I see that you're a TRAINER!
Then, it just wouldn't do for you
to miss a POKéMON CONTEST!
Get a CONTEST PASS in VERDANTURF
CITY and enter anytime!
It's appeal time!
What should I lead with?
They didn't pay much attention to
my POKéMON's appeal...
Humph, that JUDGE, he doesn't know
a good thing when he sees it.
Oh, hi! You must be a serious fan to get
this close to the action.
I'll reward your enthusiasm with this
sage advice.
If a move goes over really well,
the audience will get excited.
The POKéMON that makes its appeal
right when everyone's excited...
Well, you'd think something good has
to happen!
I can't do this! I'm more freaked out
than my POKéMON.
I'm shivering and my heart is racing!
A battle and a CONTEST aren't the
same, but they are alike, too.
You need to work hard and believe
in the POKéMON you've raised.
That POKéMON looks like it's on top
of its game, huh?
A POKéMON that does good in the
secondary judging seems to be more=relaxed when it's doing appeals.
Will you look at that sorry sight?
Heh, my POKéMON's absolutely better
than that lot!
Don't you get the urge to move with
POKéMON if they're putting on an=energetic appeal?
POKéMON CONTESTS
HYPER RANK STAGE!
Hi, hi! I'm the NAME RATER!
I'm the fortune-teller of names!
I shall be pleased to rate your
POKéMON's nickname.
Which POKéMON's nickname should
I divine?
Hmmm... @
, is it? That is
quite a fine name you bestowed.
But! What say you, if I were to
suggest a slightly better name?
Ah, good. Then, what shall the new
nickname be?
Done! From now on, this POKéMON
shall be known as @
It is a better name than before!
How fortunate for you!
I see.
Do come visit again.
Done! From now on, this POKéMON
shall be known as @
It looks no different from before,
and yet, this is vastly superior!=How fortunate for you!
Hmmm... @
it is!
This is a magnificent nickname!
It is impeccably beyond reproach!
You'll do well to cherish your
now and beyond.
Now, now.
That is merely an EGG!
Er-hem! I am the CHAIRMAN of the
POKéMON FAN CLUB!
Being the CHAIRMAN, I am naturally
the most important!
No one could best me when it comes
to raising POKéMON. No one!
In any CONTEST, my victory is a
foregone conclusion!
But, that would deprive others of
their enjoyment.
So, I now while away my time
examining the POKéMON of others.
It is marvelous to witness how
others have raised POKéMON.
The contented faces of properly
raised POKéMON...
The kind and loving gazes of their
TRAINERS...
My heart is overwhelmed - there is
so much happiness.
Oh, my! Excuse me! I seem to have
nattered on far too long!
Please, do allow me to examine your
POKéMON and see how it's grown.
How is your POKéMON growing?
Allow me to examine it.
Hm, hm...
I see...
Hmmm... It's not bad, but it's not
good, either...
You, the TRAINER, must put more
effort into raising this POKéMON!
For instance, may I suggest that
you give it more
Oh, my...
Your POKéMON is growing quite well,
so you deserve a reward.
Unfortunately, you have no space for
this in your BAG.
Your @
, it is growing in
a most impressive manner!=It is one fine specimen!
But! If you were to give it this,
it would grow even better! Indeed!
Let a POKéMON hold that RED SCARF.
Everyone will recognize the coolness
of that POKéMON!
Let a POKéMON hold that BLUE SCARF.
Its beauty will be accentuated much
more than now!
Let a POKéMON hold that PINK SCARF.
It will draw out the cuteness of
the POKéMON some more!
Let a POKéMON hold that GREEN SCARF.
That will enhance the
smartness of POKéMON!
Let a POKéMON hold that YELLOW SCARF.
It will bolster your POKéMON's
toughness so much more!
I'm sorry, but I've nothing else to
give you! None at all!
After all, you're blessed with the gift
of raising POKéMON without resorting=to any items!
I love seeing POKéMON that love
their TRAINERS.
POKéMON are very sensitive to the
feelings of their TRAINERS.
If you treat your POKéMON with love
and care, they'll love you back.
When your POKéMON grow to love you,
please come show me.
Your POKéMON really adores you.
For you, a most compassionate
TRAINER, a gift from the FAN CLUB!
POKéMON are very sensitive to the
feelings of their TRAINERS.
If you treat your POKéMON with love
and care, they'll love you back.
If you keep letting a POKéMON faint
in battle, it'll come to resent it.
Soon, it will become less trusting
of the TRAINER.
In other words, it certainly won't
like you very much.
Do POKéMON enjoy having items used
on them?
Mine acted really happy when I gave
it some PROTEIN.
SKITTY: Fffnyaaaah...
ZIGZAGOON: Kyuuu...
AZUMARILL: Marimari?
Welcome to the OCEANIC MUSEUM.
The entrance fee is $50.
Would you like to enter?
Please enjoy yourself.
Oh? I'm sorry, but you don't seem to
have enough money.
Oh? You're with that group that
went in earlier?
You're the only one who's late.
You'd better go catch up to them!
Please visit another time!
We, TEAM @
, exist for the good
of all!
We were told to assemble here, so
we did, but...
Our BOSS, the lynchpin, isn't here.
If I ripped off the stuff here,
would it make me rich?
What I learn here, I can put to use on
nefarious deeds...
If our goons didn't bungle things
in RUSTBORO, we wouldn't be here!
I didn't have $50, so it took a long
time getting by the receptionist.
I want to learn about the sea and
use that knowledge for battling.
I get all giddy and gooey when I
see the sea!
For me, CAPT. STERN is the number
one role model!
The sea is vast without end, and
infinitely deep...
There must be many POKéMON that we
don't know about.
I want a sea POKéMON.
I think it would feel cool and nice
to hug.
Aiyeeeh!
What are you doing here?
Me? I'm the TEAM @
member you
thumped before, remember?
Here, take this!
You have to forgive me!
Aww, darn it!
You so screwed up our plans!
I was going to rip off something
to make up for it, but...
Just you wait!
You'll get yours one day!
Awww, come on!
You have to take this and let me go!

Why is seawater blue?
"Light is composed of many colors.
"When light passes through water,

Why is the sea salty?
"Seawater contains dissolved salt in
the form of sodium and chlorine ions.
"These ions leach out of rocks and are
carried out to sea by rain.
"The concentration of dissolved salt
makes the sea salty."2
"OCEANIC MINI FACT 3

Thank you! That's great!
We can prepare for our expedition now.
Hehehe, hold it!
We'll take those parts!
CAPT. STERN: Wh-what?
Who are you people?
We're TEAM @
Our BOSS wants those parts!
Shut your yap and fork them over!
Awaaaah!
A kid beat me!
Oh, man, what a disaster...
The BOSS is going to be furious...
Humph, sniveling wimp!
Let me take care of this!
What?!
I lost, too!
Now what? If we don't get the parts,
we're in for it!
Arrgh, I didn't count on being meddled
with by some meddling kid!
I came to see what was taking so
long to snatch some parts, and you=simps are held up by a mere child?
I am TEAM AQUA's ARCHIE.
Tell me, why do you meddle in the
noble affairs of TEAM AQUA?
POKéMON, people, all life depends on
the sea.
So, TEAM AQUA is dedicated to the
expansion of the sea.
Don't you agree? What we are doing
is a magnificent undertaking.
Ah, fine...
You're still too young.
It can't be helped that you do not
understand our ideals.
But, if you ever oppose us again,
there will be consequences!
Heed my warning!
Farewell!
I am TEAM MAGMA's MAXIE.
Why on earth do you feel compelled
to mess up TEAM MAGMA's plans?
POKéMON, people, all life exists on land...
That's why TEAM MAGMA is trying to
expand the world's landmass.
Don't you agree? What we are doing
is a magnificent undertaking.
Well, no matter...
You're young.
Your inability to understand our
noble cause can't be helped...
But, if you were to impede us ever
again, you'll see no mercy from us!
Keep that firmly in mind!
Farewell!
CAPT. STERN: You're...
Ah, okay, you're LANDON
...
Anyway, that was a tense situation!
Thank you for saving us!
Oh, yes, I almost forgot that you
even brought the parts from DEVON!
LANDON handed over the DEVON GOODS
to CAPT. STERN.
CAPT. STERN: Whoops!
There's no time to lose!
We have to set out on our ocean floor
expedition really soon.
Thanks, and excuse me!
I saw a model of a ship here.
It reminded me of the ABANDONED SHIP
near DEWFORD TOWN...
Don't you dare run around inside
the MUSEUM!
Wow, the submarine's awesome!
I want to go for a ride!

I'm sorry, the ferry service isn't

Hello, are you here for the ferry?
May I see your TICKET?
LANDON doesn't have the TICKET...
I'm terribly sorry.
You must have a TICKET to board
the ferry.
LANDON flashed the TICKET.
Perfect! That's all you need!
And where would you like to go?
Please sail with us another time!
LILYCOVE CITY it is, then!
BATTLE TOWER it is, then!
Please board the ferry and wait for
departure.
Then, where would you like to go?
A journey to the bottom of the sea...
I wonder what it'd be like?
I'd love to go deep underwater like
that some day.
I wanted to go with CAPT. STERN on
the ocean floor exploration.
But the sub's too small for me.
If I squeezed in, there wouldn't be
any room for the CAPTAIN...
CAPT. STERN: Those thugs...
They're the same lot who tried to rob
the DEVON GOODS at the MUSEUM.
: Fwahahaha...
I commiserate with you!
All that effort you spent following
me here all the way from MT. PYRE.
But now...
No one can stop us! No one!
Or, will you follow us back to our
HIDEOUT in LILYCOVE CITY?
Fwahahahaha...
CAPT. STERN: Why...
Why would TEAM @
steal my
SUBMARINE EXPLORER 1?
They can't be after the slumbering
POKéMON at the bottom of the sea...
But even if I were to chase them,
I don't stand a chance against them...
CAPT. STERN: Oh, LANDON
...
Okay... So TEAM @
left before you
could stop them...
Oh, no, don't blame yourself.
You're not responsible for this.
Trying to catch a submarine...
It's impossible for most people.
You would need a POKéMON that knows
how to DIVE...
Perhaps if you went out to
MOSSDEEP CITY...
A lot of divers live out there, so
someone might teach you...

CAPT. STERN: Oh, yes.
MR. BRINEY came to our SHIPYARD.
It won't be long now before we finish
making the ferry!
CAPT. STERN: LANDON
We finally finished making the ferry
S.S. TIDAL!
We couldn't have done it without your
friend MR. BRINEY.
Please go for a short cruise on it!
CAPT. STERN: Oh?
LANDON
, that item you have...
That's a SCANNER! That would sure
help us on our explorations.
LANDON
, would you trade your
SCANNER for something?
Like say a DEEPSEATOOTH or a
DEEPSEASCALE that I have?
CAPT. STERN: Are you certain?
It's useless to you, LANDON
...
Well, okay, then. If you want to trade
your SCANNER, let me know.
CAPT. STERN: So you'll trade it for
my DEEPSEATOOTH?
CAPT. STERN: So you'll trade it for
my DEEPSEASCALE?
CAPT. STERN: Which one do you want?
LANDON handed the SCANNER to
CAPT. STERN.
CAPT. STERN: Thanks, LANDON
This will help our research a lot!
My POKéMON has a HASTY nature.
It has higher SPEED compared to my
other POKéMON.
Maybe their nature has something to
do with the stat gains of POKéMON.
You need a CONTEST PASS to enter a
CONTEST.
It's easy to get. They give it to
anyone who has POKéMON.
Oh, a CONTEST PASS!
You're going to be a contestant?
Want a tip for battling?
I'd say it's raising different kinds
of POKéMON in a balanced manner.
It's no good to make just one
POKéMON strong.
If it has a type disadvantage, it
might not stand a chance.
I trade POKéMON with my friends.
If a traded POKéMON is holding an
item, it makes me twice as happy!
The MARKET does have some interesting
merchandise.
But there are some items you can only
get at a POKé MART.
A GREAT BALL is better than a POKé BALL
at catching POKéMON.
With this, I should be able to get that
elusive POKéMON...
Hey, how's it going, the CHAMPION-
bound LANDON?
WATTSON, the LEADER of MAUVILLE
GYM, uses ELECTRIC-type POKéMON.
If you challenge him with WATER-type
POKéMON, he'll zap them! Bzzt!
And, he's put in switch-controlled doors
all over his GYM! Eccentric!
Hey, go for it!
Whoa, you're electrifying!
You've powered the door open!
My electric soul, it'll shatter your
dreams whole, whoah-yeahah!
That was plugged in, amped up,
over-driven electric, man!
POKéMON and rock, it's all about heart,
whoah yeah!
I trained under WATTSON!
There ain't no way I'd lose easily!
Unplugged and turned off...
WATTSON, our GYM LEADER, has been
around for a long, long time.
He was battling even before your
daddy was born, that tough coot.
This GYM's got puzzles!
Isn't it fun?
It's no fun to lose...
WATTSON says he likes setting up
little traps with switches.
With my charm and my POKéMON's moves,
you'll be shocked!
I'm shocked by your power!
I've heard that MAUVILLE was founded
by WATTSON.
He was a TRAINER long before we
became TRAINERS.=He must know all sorts of things!
I've given up on my plans to convert
the city, I have.
And so, I put my time into making
door traps in my GYM.
Oh? Now, what are you doing here?
What's that? You say you've gotten
past all my rigged doors?
Wahahahah!
Now, that is amusing!
Then, I, WATTSON, the LEADER of
MAUVILLE GYM, shall electrify you!
Wahahahah!
Fine, I lost!
You ended up giving me a thrill!
Take this BADGE!
LANDON received the DYNAMO BADGE
from WATTSON.
With the DYNAMO BADGE, POKéMON can
use ROCK SMASH out of battle.
And, it will make your POKéMON a little
bit faster, too.
Hmm...
You should take this, too!
That TM34 there contains SHOCK WAVE.
It's a trustworthy move that never
misses! You can count on it!
I swell with optimism, seeing a promising
young TRAINER like you!
Wahahahah!
Go forth and endeavor, youngster!

MAUVILLE CITY POKéMON GYM
WATTSON'S CERTIFIED TRAINERS:
LANDON
Well, well, what have we here?
A most energetic customer!
Me? You may call me RYDEL.
I'm the owner of this cycle shop.
RYDEL: Your RUNNING SHOES...
They're awfully filthy.
Did you come from far away?
RYDEL: Is that right?
Then, I guess you have no need for
any of my BIKES.
RYDEL: Hm, hm... ... ... ... ...
... ... ... ... ... ... ... ...
You're saying that you came all this
way from LITTLEROOT?
My goodness!
That's ridiculously far!
If you had one of my BIKES, you could
go anywhere easily while feeling the=gentle caress of the wind!
I'll tell you what!
I'll give you a BIKE!
Oh, wait a second!
I forgot to tell you that there are
two kinds of BIKES!
They are the MACH BIKE and the
ACRO BIKE!
MACH BIKE is for cyclists who want
to feel the wind with their bodies!
And an ACRO BIKE is for those who
prefer technical rides!
I'm a real sweetheart, so you can
have whichever one you like!
Which one will you choose?
LANDON chose the MACH BIKE.
LANDON chose the ACRO BIKE.
RYDEL: If you get the urge to switch
BIKES, just come see me!
RYDEL: Oh? Were you thinking about
switching BIKES?
RYDEL: Okay, no problem!
I'll switch BIKES for you!
LANDON got the MACH BIKE exchanged
for an ACRO BIKE.
LANDON got the ACRO BIKE exchanged
for a MACH BIKE.
RYDEL: Good, good!
I'm happy that you like it!
Oh? What happened to that BIKE I
gave you?
Oh, I get it, you stored it using your PC.
Well, take it out of PC storage,
and I'll be happy to exchange it!
May the wind always be at your back
on your adventure!
I'm learning about BIKES while
I work here.
If you need advice on how to ride your
BIKE, there're a couple handbooks in=the back.
It's a handbook on the MACH BIKE.
Which page do you want to read?
A BIKE moves in the direction that
the
Control Pad is pressed.
It will speed up once it gets rolling.
To stop, release the
Control Pad.
The BIKE will slow to a stop.
Want to read a different page?
A MACH BIKE is speedy, but it can't
stop very quickly.
It gets a little tricky to get around
a corner.
Release the
Control Pad a little
before the corner and slow down.
Want to read a different page?
There are small sandy slopes throughout
the HOENN region.
The loose, crumbly sand makes it
impossible to climb normally.
But if you have a MACH BIKE, you can
zip up a sandy slope.
Want to read a different page?
It's a handbook on the ACRO BIKE.
Which page do you want to read?
Press the B Button while riding, and the
front wheel lifts up.
You can zip around with the front
wheel up using the
Control Pad.
This technique is called a wheelie.
Want to read a different page?
Keeping the B Button pressed, your
BIKE can hop on the spot.
This technique is called a bunny hop.
You can ride while hopping, too.
Want to read a different page?
Press the B Button and the
Control
Pad at the same time to jump.
Press the
Control Pad to the side
to jump sideways.
Press it backwards to make the BIKE
change directions while jumping.
Want to read a different page?
Woohoo, your POKéMON look pretty
strong.
I like that!
Here, take this HM!
That HM contains ROCK SMASH.
If you come across large boulders
that block your path...
Well, use that HM move and smash
it right out of your way!
Oh, yes, if you smash a rock, a POKéMON
could come flying out.
This is MAUVILLE GAME CORNER.
Okay, you wanted some COINS for
the games?
But you don't have a COIN CASE for
stowing the COINS.
Were you looking for COINS?
It's $1000 for 50 COINS.
Would you like some?
Thank you very much!
Here are your COINS!
Um... You don't appear to have
enough money...
Oh?
Your COIN CASE is full.
Oh... You don't need COINS, then?
Good luck on your adventure!
It's $1,000 for 50 COINS.
Would you like some?
Welcome.
You can exchange your COINS for
prizes here.
Which prize would you like?
So your choice is @
Thank you!
We'll send it to your PC at home.
You don't have enough COINS.
There isn't any room available for
placing @
Oh, is that so?
You need to save some COINS before=coming back here.
Here you go!
Oh, you can't carry any more than that.
I made a mistake and got two of the
same DOLLS.
Would you like one of them?
There you go!
Huh?
You want it, but not right now?
Oh, don't be so negative!
You can have this!
There's a prize I want, but I can't win
the jackpot.
Hey, kid, if you want to play here,
you need a COIN CASE.
I think the young lady next door
had one. Go see her!
My luck can only last so long.
This is too much for me.=Here, take some COINS!
MAUVILLE has something for
everyone.
For me, it's the GAME CORNER.
The ROULETTE tables have different
rates.
Check your COINS if you're going to
pick a table.
It's easy to lose track of time in here.
I should get back to work.
COINS are needed to play here in the
GAME CORNER.
This ROULETTE thing...
It's rather demanding.
Win or lose, it's only by luck.
Up to three COINS can be used to play
the SLOTS.
It's very difficult to make it stop
right on "7."2
If it stops on "7"2 during the REEL TIME
bonus game, you'll receive extra COINS.
Here's some information for you
about the SLOTS.
The more lightning bolts you stock, the
more REEL TIME chances you get.
In a game with the maximum five REEL
TIME chances...
It is possible to receive four regular
bonuses, then a big bonus.
The big bonus is 660 COINS, but it's
very difficult to get.
You can't play if you don't have a
COIN CASE.
If I had a BIKE, it'd be easy to cycle to
SLATEPORT for some shopping.
I'd be able to buy HARBOR MAIL at the
POKéMON MART in SLATEPORT...
Oh! You have HARBOR MAIL?
Will you trade it for a COIN CASE?
Oh, I'm so happy!
Okay, I'll trade you a COIN CASE!
That COIN CASE can be used at the
GAME CORNER.
Oh, that's disappointing.
A COIN CASE is needed for the
GAME CORNER.
That man over there, he says weird
things!
He's funny in a weird way.
I doubt I'll forget about him!
When I accessed the RECORD CORNER,
the data for what's hot in DEWFORD=got updated.
Now that bit of data is the same
as my friend's!
A RECORD CORNER opened upstairs in
the POKéMON CENTER.
I don't know what it's about, but it
sounds fun. I'll go check it out!
Did you know that you can link battle
at the COLOSSEUM here?
They put up your record on the wall
for everyone to see.
It's embarrassing if you lose more
often than you win...
There are items that temporarily
elevate the stats of POKéMON.
The ones I know you use in battle
are X ATTACK and X DEFEND...
I do believe that there are others
like them.
Use a certain move, or use an item
instead...
The TRAINER's decisions determine how
battles turn out, I think.
Hello and welcome to the DEVON
CORPORATION.
We're proud producers of items and
medicine that enhance your life.
One of our research staff stupidly
got robbed of an important parcel.
Hey, those RUNNING SHOES!
They're one of our products!
It makes me happy when I see someone
using something we made.
That stolen parcel...
Well, sure it's important, but it's not
anything that anyone can use.
In my estimation, that robber must not
have been very bright.
It sounds like they've recovered
the ripped-off DEVON GOODS.
I'm sorry, only authorized people
are allowed to enter here.
It's beyond stupid.
How could we get robbed?
Hi, there!
You're always welcome here!
We're developing a device for talking
with POKéMON.
But we haven't had much success...
I'm developing new kinds of
POKé BALLS...
But I haven't made much headway...
We finally made new kinds of POKé BALLS!
The REPEAT BALL makes it easier to
catch POKéMON you'd caught before.
The TIMER BALL gets better at catching
POKéMON the longer a battle runs.
Both are proudly developed by the
DEVON CORPORATION.
Please give them a try!
I made the POKéNAV!
As an engineer, I feel blessed to have
made something so great!
Oh, wow!
That's a POKéNAV!
It came about as a result of our
PRESIDENT's desire to learn about=the feelings of POKéMON.
Would you like me to describe its
features in detail?
No, no. I think you'll find out just by
trying the POKéNAV out.
I'm trying to develop a device that
visually reproduces the dreams of=POKéMON...
But it's not going well.
I've been trying to develop a device
that resurrects POKéMON from fossils...
And, it's working!
Wait! That thing you have there...
Is that a POKéMON fossil?
Would you like to bring that POKéMON
back to life?
I can with my newly developed
FOSSIL REGENERATOR.
Oh, is that so?
DEVON's technological expertise
is outstanding, I tell you.
Excellent!
Let's do this right away.
LANDON handed the @
to
the DEVON RESEARCHER.
The FOSSIL REGENERATOR, which I made,
is incredible.
But it has one drawback - it takes
a long time to work.
So, uh... How about you go for a stroll
and look around for a while?
Thanks for waiting!
Your fossilized POKéMON has been
brought back to life!
The fossil was an ancient POKéMON.
, it was!
LANDON received @
from
the DEVON RESEARCHER.
Uh-oh, you've got too many POKéMON.
You have no room for this one.
I'm MR. STONE, the PRESIDENT of
the DEVON CORPORATION.
I'd just got word about you!
You saved our staff not just once,
but twice!
I have a favor to ask of an amazing
person like you.
I understand that you're delivering
a package to SLATEPORT's SHIPYARD.
Well, on the way, could you stop off in
DEWFORD TOWN?
I was hoping that you'd deliver a LETTER
to STEVEN in DEWFORD.
MR. STONE: Now, you should know that
I am a great PRESIDENT.
So, I'd never be so cheap as to ask
a favor for nothing in return.
That's why I want you to have this!
LANDON received a POKéNAV.
MR. STONE: That device...
It's a POKéMON NAVIGATOR, or POKéNAV
for short.
It's an indispensable tool for any
TRAINER on an adventure.
It has a map of the HOENN region.
You can check the locations of
DEWFORD and SLATEPORT easily!
MR. STONE: I'm counting on you!
MR. STONE: You delivered my LETTER?
Thank you kindly!
This is my way of thanking you.
It should help you, a TRAINER.
MR. STONE: A POKéMON holding that
EXP. SHARE will be given some of the=EXP Points from battle.
It will get EXP Points even if it didn't
actually battle.
I would say EXP. SHARE is quite useful
for raising weak POKéMON.
MR. STONE: Since my youth, I've immersed
myself in work.
Consequently, I'm not familiar with
trends and that sort of thing.
But do young people all want to be
TRAINERS in the POKéMON LEAGUE?
This is the DEVON CORPORATION's
third floor.
Our PRESIDENT's OFFICE is on this floor.
Anyway, I can't tell you how much I'm
grateful for what you've done.
Um... By the way, that parcel you got
back for us...
Could I get you to deliver that to the
SHIPYARD in SLATEPORT?
It would be awful if those robbers
tried to take it again.
Uh... Hehehe, so, uh, could I count
on you to do that for me?
Oh, that's right.
Could you wait here a second?
Our PRESIDENT would like to have
a word with you.
Please come with me.
Please, go ahead.
If you visit the SHIPYARD in SLATEPORT,
you should go see CAPT. STERN.
DEVON's new products, the REPEAT BALL
and TIMER BALL, have become hugely=popular among TRAINERS.
It's a collection of rare rocks and
stones assembled by the PRESIDENT.
Yo, how's it going?
Listen, my friend!
Would you like to become the CHAMPION?
I'm no TRAINER, not me, but I can
sure give you winning advice.
That's settled, then! We'll aim for the
POKéMON CHAMPIONSHIP together!
It's your job as a TRAINER to collect
GYM BADGES, am I right?
But GYM LEADERS aren't pushovers!
And that's where I come in!
I'm here to provide expert advice!
ROXANNE, the GYM LEADER, is a user
of ROCK-type POKéMON.
The ROCK type is very durable, but
it can't stand WATER-type and=GRASS-type moves.
Come see me afterwards, if you beat
the GYM LEADER.
Well, go for it!
Whoa! What a breathtaking victory!
My cheering must've worked!
Great!
Check your TRAINER CARD.
The STONE BADGE you got should be
properly recorded on it.
In other words...
You've climbed the first step on
the stairs to the CHAMPIONSHIP!
That's got to feel awesome!
Don't take us GYM TRAINERS lightly!
I'll show you why we're better!
You were too good for me...
You haven't seen anything of the ROCK
type's terrifying power!
If you can't beat me, you won't stand
a chance against ROXANNE!
Wow! You've got some potential!
ROXANNE is stronger than me by
several times.
You'd better be on your guard!
Hello, I am ROXANNE, the RUSTBORO
POKéMON GYM LEADER.
I became a GYM LEADER so that I may
apply what I learned at the POKéMON=TRAINER'S SCHOOL in battle.
Would you kindly demonstrate how you
battle, and with which POKéMON?
So...
I lost...
It seems that I still have much more
to learn...
I understand.
The POKéMON LEAGUE's rules state
that TRAINERS are to be given this=if they defeat a GYM LEADER.
Please accept the official POKéMON
LEAGUE STONE BADGE.
LANDON received the STONE BADGE
from ROXANNE.
The STONE BADGE heightens the ATTACK
power of your POKéMON.
It also enables them to use the HM move
CUT outside of battle.
Please take this with you, too.
That TM39 contains ROCK TOMB.
It not only inflicts damage by dropping
rocks, it also lowers SPEED.
If you use a TM, it instantly teaches
the move to a POKéMON.
Remember, a TM can be used only once,
so think before you use it.
Since you are so strong, you should
challenge other GYM LEADERS.
By battling many TRAINERS, you should
learn many things.

The blackboard lists status changes
that may affect POKéMON in battle.
Which topic do you want to read?
If a POKéMON is poisoned, it will
steadily lose HP.
The effects of poison remain after
a battle.
A poisoned POKéMON's HP will drop
while it is traveling.
Heal a poisoning using an ANTIDOTE.
If a POKéMON becomes paralyzed,
its SPEED drops.
It may also not be able to move while
it is in battle.
Paralysis remains after battle.
Cure it using a PARLYZ HEAL.
If a POKéMON falls asleep, it will be
unable to attack.
A POKéMON may wake up on its own,
but if a battle ends while it is sleeping,=it will stay asleep.
Wake it up using an AWAKENING.
A burn reduces ATTACK power, and it
steadily reduces the victim's HP.
A burn lingers after battle.
Cure a burn using a BURN HEAL.
If a POKéMON is frozen, it becomes
completely helpless.
It will remain frozen after battle.
Thaw it out using an ICE HEAL.
Students who don't study get a little
taste of my QUICK CLAW.
Whether or not you are a good student
will be evident from the way you use=this item.
A POKéMON holding the QUICK CLAW will
occasionally speed up and get to move=before its opponent.
There are many other items that are
meant to be held by POKéMON.
Just those alone will give you many
topics to study!
I'm trading POKéMON with my friend
right now.
I always wanted a SEEDOT, and
I'm finally getting one!
POKéMON can hold items, but they
don't know what to do with man-made=items like POTION and ANTIDOTE.
You know how some POKéMON moves can
confuse a POKéMON?
A confused POKéMON will sometimes
attack itself without meaning to.
But once it leaves battle, it will
return to normal.
A POKéMON holding a BERRY will heal
itself...
There are many kinds of items that
POKéMON can hold...
Boy, it sure is hard taking notes
