'''''Pokémon the Series: Ruby and Sapphire''''' (Japanese: '''ポケットモンスター アドバンスジェネレーション''' ''Pocket Monsters Advanced Generation''), referred to by fans as the '''''Advanced Generation'' series''', is the second series of the [[Pokémon anime]] and is based on the events of the [[core series]] [[Generation III]] [[Pokémon games]]. It follows the {{series|original}} and was succeeded by the {{series|Diamond & Pearl}}. It ran from November 21, 2002 to September 14, 2006 in Japan and from November 1, 2003 to March 3, 2007 in the United States, although the first two episodes aired as a sneak peek in the United States on March 15, 2003. It was not given an English name until after the release of ''[[XY series|Pokémon the Series: XY]]''.

==Blurb==
<i>Polishing off the Silver Conference, Ash heads toward his next challenge—the far-off Hoenn region! While he must say goodbye to old friends, he makes the acquaintance of May, a Trainer just starting out on her Pokémon journey. Along with her little brother Max and the ever-reliable Brock, this pack of Pokémon Trainers begin pursuing their dreams—with Ash racking up three Gym Badges, while May changes tack to follow the Contest path of a Pokémon Coordinator.</i>
 
==Overview==
In this series, Ash travels through the [[Hoenn]] [[region]] in an effort to compete in the [[Hoenn League]] there. He is joined not by {{an|Misty}}, who had been his continuous companion for the entirety of the original series, but {{an|May}}, a rookie Trainer from [[Petalburg City]] who at first merely wishes to travel. Eventually, she learns of [[Pokémon Contest]]s and declares herself a [[Pokémon Coordinator]], training to win [[Ribbon]]s so she can enter the [[Hoenn Grand Festival]]. May's brother, [[Max]], also travels with the group and helps map out routes to take using his [[PokéNav]]. However, Max is too young to have his own Pokémon. {{an|Brock}}, Ash's near-constant adviser, returns soon after the start of the series, while Misty makes two several-episode cameo appearances.
 
After Ash competes in the Hoenn League, Ash and Brock return to [[Kanto]] while May and Max return to [[Petalburg City]]. While on his way home to [[Pallet Town]], Ash meets [[Scott]], who after observing Ash's battle skills invites him to enter the {{Gdis|Battle Frontier|III}}. He travels around Kanto in an effort to defeat the seven [[Frontier Brain]]s and is joined again by Brock, Max and May - who is now aiming to compete in the [[Kanto Grand Festival]].
 
The ''Advanced Generation'' series saw a change in the formula followed by the original series, as well. While in [[Kanto]] and [[Johto]], Ash encountered all three of those regions' [[starter Pokémon]] and caught each, in this series Ash's only capture of a starter was {{TP|Ash|Treecko}}, while his friends, May and Brock, caught a {{TP|May|Torchic}} and a {{TP|Brock|Mudkip}}, respectively. Also, unlike when he traveled to the [[Orange Archipelago]] and [[Johto]], Ash left behind all of his Pokémon at {{an|Professor Oak}}'s, bringing only {{AP|Pikachu}}. Another change was new clothing for Ash and Brock. No longer did Ash wear the {{AP|hat}} he claimed to have sent in a million postcards for, but instead a completely different outfit. Misty also received a new outfit during her return appearances.
