Ladies and gents, I know it's been a while now since I last made a contribution to this site. But finally, after writing, rewriting, re-rewriting, and a little bit of procastination, I give you my new project. It's not really any kind of articles, no analyzation or outlining. All I have for you all this time is a story. A story of discovery, reconstruction, redemption, and war.
And this is how it began.
A prolouge in history

Hoenn’s champion, Wallace goes to Sky Pillar, accompanied by a trainer named Brendan. Rayquaza is awakened, and flies to Sootopolis.

August 21th, 2005
Hoenn’s terrain becomes inexplicably disrupted. Violent storms begin occurring at sea, and the tide around the mainland experiences a sudden rise of between 15 and 20 feet. The mainland is seized by violent tremors and earthquakes. Mt. Chimeny begins erupting frequently, and Lavaridge is evacuated.
August 29th, 2005
A massive earthquake occurs at Mt. Pyre. The surrounding water is disrupted, sending small tidal waves crashing down on the surrounding routes. Lilycove is completely ravaged. Over 70 people are killed, and many more are injured.
As quakes and storms ravage the mainland, evacuation attempts begin, but many are hindered by the disasters, ever-increasing in frequency and destructive power. Gym leaders are relieved of normal duties to assist the evacuation and protection of Hoenn’s citizens. Due to the seeming safety of the islands of the region, Brawly, Juan, Liza and Tate are sent to the mainland as well, to aid in the effort.
Ever Grande is established as the central refugee camp.
September 3rd, 2005
A tsunami completely engulfs Fortree. 300 are confirmed dead. Many other citizens are badly injured, and many of those die shortly after. Winonna, one of the last to abandon the city, survives but is badly injured. Luckily, the water flows down the mountains towards Mt. Pyre bay, and no other cities are hit.
Meteor Falls begins caving in. The trainers within are unreachable, and presumed dead.
September 4th, 2005
Littleroot is ravaged by a large quake. Luckily, all citizens have been evacuated. Contact is lost with Brawly, overseeing the evacuation of Oldale.
The elite 4, Brendan(the newly-crowned champion), and former champion Wallace are called forth to aid in the evacuation. Contact with Steven is attempted as well, but fails. He is presumed to have died in Meteor Falls, where he was last reportedly seen.
Fallarbor is siezed by a massive series of fissures in the earth, claiming over half of the small towns homes and lives.
September 9th, 2005
Rustboro is overtaken by a series of massive waves rising upon it from the cliffs. Communication with Roxanne and Brendan, stationed there at the time, are lost. Rustboro’s situation is unknown, and Roxanne and Brendan are reported missing in action.
September 12th, 2005
Evacuations of the mainland are complete. Refugees head to Ever Grande and the other islands. Wattson is MIA, and Pheobe reported dead, in the evacuation of Mauville. Brendan comes out of the wreckage of Rustboro carrying a severely injured but alive Roxanne.
The battle Frontier is established as a temporary refugee camp, due to overpopulation by refugees.
September 17th, 2005
Due to overpopulation of the islands, towns are created on two of Hoenn’s small, uninhabited islands. These towns are to be named Newflint City and Vistian Town.
November 2nd, 2005
Newflint and Vistian are completed, and settlement by mainland refugees begins.
Quakes and storms continue on the mainland, the entirety of which is declared unsafe.
March 26th, 2006
After a long political debate, Hoenn is split into two regions. The mainland keeps the name Hoenn, and the islands become the region of New Hoenn.
February 7th, 2011
Five years after the abandonment of Hoenn, the disasters are reported to have ended. The waters around the mainland become peaceful once more, and the earths seizures come to an end.
April 19th, 2011
New Hoenn’s government makes a decision on how to handle the resettlement of Hoenn. Teams consisting of construction personnel and Pokemon trainers will be sent out before any settlers. The job of the workers is to rebuild the towns and cities as quickly as possible. The trainers are to travel the region, pioneering and surveying it for the rest of the population. Very few trainers are willing to do this. Besides the remaining gym leaders and elite 4 members, most of the trainers who sign up for this undertaking are young and ambitious, full of blind promise, unknowing of what awaits them. They will lead the natives of Hoenn back to their homeland.
If there is any homeland to return to.
