==Etymology and design concept==
Hoenn was created after [[Primal Reversion|Primal]] {{p|Groudon}} and Primal {{p|Kyogre}} were formed. Primal Groudon raised the landmasses and Primal Kyogre filled the seas that would later become Hoenn. TheA meeting ofbetween these two createdcaused a great battle for supremacy until it was quelled by [[Mega Evolution|Mega]] {{p|Rayquaza}}, sending Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre into caverns where they rested until they were awakened many years later during the course of events in [[Generation III]] or [[Generation VI]]. The moving of the continents by {{p|Regigigas}} created Hoenn, and when Regigigas was sent to sleep in the [[Snowpoint Temple]] in [[Sinnoh]], {{p|Regirock}}, {{p|Registeel}}, and {{p|Regice}}, the keys to awakening it, were sealed away in Hoenn.
In contemporary history, {{ga|Brendan}}/{{ga|May}} moved to [[Littleroot Town]] in Hoenn from [[Johto]]. Brendan/May encountered May/Brendan, competing with Brendan/May to complete the Pokédex. Brendan/May saved [[Professor Birch]] from a Poochyena{{sup/3|RS}}{{sup/6|ORAS}}/Zigzagoon{{sup/3|E}} with a {{p|Torchic}}, {{p|Mudkip}}, or {{p|Treecko}} from Professor Birch's bag; as a reward for saving him, he gave Brendan/May a [[Pokédex]] and allowed him/her to keep the Pokémon that he/she used to save him. Brendan/May traveled across Hoenn, occasionally encountering and defeating [[Team Aqua]] and [[Team Magma]]. Team Magma{{sup/3|R}}{{sup/3|E}}{{sup/6|OR}} and/or Team Aqua{{sup/3|S}}{{sup/3|E}}{{sup/6|AS}} successfully awakened {{p|Groudon}}{{sup/3|R}}{{sup/3|E}}{{sup/6|OR}} and/or {{p|Kyogre}}{{sup/3|S}}{{sup/3|E}}{{sup/6|AS}}, which caused the region of Hoenn to be plagued by {{weather|harsh sunlight}}{{sup/3|R}}{{sup/6|OR}}, {{weather|heavy rain}}{{sup/3|S}}{{sup/6|AS}} or a strange mixture of both{{sup/3|E}}. However, Brendan/May successfully calmed the weather Pokémon when he/she defeated it{{sup/3|RS}}{{sup/6|ORAS}} or summoned {{p|Rayquaza}} to calm them{{sup/3|E}}. Brendan/May then proceeded to win at the Pokémon League and become the Champion, and was invited to complete in the {{OBPgdis|Battle Frontier|Generation III}}{{sup/3|E}}.
Upon becoming the Champion, a meteor changed course towards Hoenn{{sup/6|ORAS}}. May's/Brendan's, [[Wally]]'s, and [[Archie]]'s{{sup/6|AS}}/[[Maxie]]'s{{sup/6|OR}} [[Key Stone]]s were stolen by [[Zinnia]] in an attempt to summon {{p|Rayquaza}} to avert the crisis. Brendan/May encountered Zinnia at [[Sky Pillar]] and successfully summoned Rayquaza. Brendan/May gave Rayquaza the power to [[Mega Evolution|Mega Evolve]] and it destroyed the meteor.
