Introduction

The game is set in the land of Hoenn where you (the main character) embark on a brand new adventure and aim to become the best Pokémon trainer ever.

The goal of all trainers is to defeat all eight of the Gym Leaders and earn the eight badges from each leader. Only then you will have access to the Elite Four, where you can test your skills as a Pokémon trainer.

There are also many objectives standing in your way of fulfilling your goal, including the villains, Team Aqua or Magma (Aqua in Sapphire, Magma in Ruby) who attempt to destroy the world of Pokémon, however, your objective is to stop them and be the hero of the Pokémon world.

At times, like all Pokémon games, you will encounter wild Pokémon (which you can catch), and be battled by other trainers, however, if you train your Pokémon well, you should be able to keep ahead.


Walkthrough/Petalburg Area

Route 102 edit

Along this route, you will want to catch Ralts (Which is hard to find), {{{2} and Surskit (which is very rare).

Your father lends him a Zigzagoon, and sends you with Wally. Wally catches a Ralts, and then returns with you to the gym.

As soon as you go back to Rustboro City, on your way back in, the person from Devon will stop you. He will ask you to deliver the goods to Slateport City. You will also be given a letter to bring to Dewford Town.
