Story
The Hoenn Region!
The Hoenn region, where your adventure takes place, consists of a main island that stretches widely from east to west, along with countless small islets that dot the deep blue sea around it. A live volcano steams constantly in the heart of this green-covered island.

A world so real, you can almost hear the Pokémon breathing!
Begin in Littleroot Town!
Your story starts when you move to Littleroot Town, the small town where everything is about to begin. Ahead of you are places you’ve never seen, Pokémon you’ve never encountered, and people you’ve yet to meet. For you, the player, and for the main character, every day is brimming with new experiences!
Your First Pokémon Allies!
Soon after setting out from Littleroot Town, you will begin encountering Pokémon and catching them. Meet some of the Pokémon you may come across early in your adventure.

The first step on your journey begins when you choose a Pokémon for your first partner from among three Pokémon, each one brimming with personality. Learn about Treecko, Torchic, and Mudkip, the three Pokémon from which you may choose your first partner in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.

The first Pokémon partner you choose is the second-most important choice you face in your adventure, after picking which game you want to play. Think carefully about this before you choose your partner!

Take a look at the three Pokémon you'll choose from at the start of your adventure!
Two Tales Await!
In your adventure, you will meet Legendary Pokémon and battle against evil organizations intent on their own aims! Take a journey through the Hoenn region, where two large organizations with opposing aims are locked in struggle: Team Magma and Team Aqua. Team Magma wishes to expand the landmass in the Hoenn region, while Team Aqua seeks to raise the oceans. Their contrary purposes lead them to clash bitterly. In Pokémon Omega Ruby, Team Magma will seize more power to achieve its goals. Team Aqua plays the more prominent role in Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. In both versions, you will find yourself drawn into the conflict.

Meet members of Team Magma and Team Aqua!
