On his eleventh birthday, Ruby and his mother moved to [[Littleroot Town]], [[Hoenn]]. Ruby was displeased with this decision as he preferred [[Johto]]'s modern cities over Hoenn's rural countryside. After getting to the small town, Ruby ran away as he didn't want to face his father, who didn't approve of Ruby's hobby of Pokémon Contests. Just as he left the town, he met [[Professor Birch]], who was attacked by two {{p|Mightyena}}. Ruby refused to battle, stating his reason was because he didn't want his Pokémon dirty. Instead, he asked the two Dark-types to join him on his quest to conquer the contests of Hoenn. However, they started to chase him. Ruby still didn't fear him and instead picked up Birch's nearby Pokédex and used it to learn about Mightyena.
Amazed by the fact that the Mightyena were evolved, he sent out his [[Nana]], a {{p|Poochyena}}, and showed off her elegant moves against the stronger Pokémon. However, the attacks did no damage and Ruby and Birch were forced to run from the wild Pokémon. Due to the [[Running Shoes]] that had been given to him by his parents for his birthday, Ruby got ahead of Birch and fell off a cliff and was knocked unconscious. Fortunately, a mysterious [[{{adv|Sapphire (Adventures)|Pokémon]]}} caught him and brought him into its cave.
Ruby was soon awakened by the lick of Nana. Upon waking up, he received a call on Professor Birch's [[Pokégear]] from the researcher himself. Ruby explained where he was and Birch introduced himself formally. During the conversation, Ruby realized that Birch was a friend of his father but the man didn't know that the boy had ran away yet.
The Pokémon then noticed that Ruby was awake and spoke to him. Shocked, Ruby backed up in fear and Nana attacked it. The Pokémon then revealed itself to be a human girl. She attacked Nana with her {{p|Torchic}}. In order to help the boy, Birch told him to take out the {{type2|Water}} Pokémon {{p|Mudkip}} out of his bag. Ruby was disappointed by the lack of coolness and beauty in the Pokémon, but stated that it could be in a tough contest. Ruby refused to battle, which angered the girl. It was at that point that Birch realized that it was his daughter [[{{adv|Sapphire (Adventures)]]}} that Ruby was fighting. As Birch explained this to Ruby, the reception between the two was lost. Moments later, the two children were attacked by a {{p|Seviper}}.
Ruby still refused to fight, forcing Sapphire to defeat the Tail Snake Pokémon all by herself. After this the two got into an argument over their interests, which made Sapphire ask Ruby to take a bet. The two would go on a journey and see who would reach their goals in 80 days. Ruby agreed and then Sapphire fainted from the damage that she received from the battle with the Mightyena. Realizing the girl was hurt, Ruby helped her and left her some new clothes. Before he left, the Seviper awakened, but Ruby released a mysterious light from a Poké Ball and the Seviper fell to the floor.
