Steven Stone

22 bytes removed, 25 August
Steven was first mentioned by [[Mr. Stone|his father]] in ''[[AG017|Stairway to Devon]]'' who claimed he would be a good person for {{Ash}} and {{ashfr}} to know. In ''[[AG021|Which Wurmple's Which?]]'', [[Nurse Joy]] informed [[Max]] that Steven was in nearby [[Granite Cave]], so the group began their search for him.
He then appeared in persondebuted in ''[[AG022|A Hole Lotta Trouble]]''. Unlike his game counterpart, Steven was not mentioned to be or have been the [[Hoenn League]] {{pkmn|Champion}}, but was simply a powerful {{pkmn|Trainer}}. Instead, [[Wallace]] was said to be the Champion later in the {{series|Diamond & Pearl}}. Steven and his {{p|Aron}} were digging in Granite Cave, looking for rare stones. As {{Ash}}, {{ashfr}}, and {{TRT}} fell down a hole, Steven his excavation and quickly checked out what caused the crash to occur. Steven first found Max, {{AP|Pikachu}}, and {{MTR}} wondering around the cave.
Having been in Granite Cave for several months, Steven escorted Max and the others to a crack in the cave floor. Soon enough they spotted Ash and the others, who were being chased by a horde of agitated Aron. He ordered them to rush over to the nearby waterfall. At the meeting spot, Steven had his own Aron use {{m|Roar}} to calm the agitated horde. He then told the horde that the group were good people and ordered the back to their roosts. After both sides were reunited with each other, Steven found out that Team Rocket were the ones who caused the Aron to get angry. Steven handled Team Rocket on his own by having his {{p|Aggron}} blast them off with a {{m|Hyper Beam}}. Afterwards, Steven found a [[Fire Stone]] with the help of Aron. He decided to lead the group out of Granite Cave and took them to a deserted inlet, an ideal place for Ash to train for his [[rematch]] with [[Brawly]]. Having found a rare stone, Steven boarded his small boat to continue his search for other stones and wished the group luck for the future.

Steven reappeared in ''[[SS031|Mega Evolution Special II]]'', where he battled [[Alain]] using his {{Shiny}} [[Mega Evolution|Mega]] {{TP|Steven|Metagross}}, but the battle was interrupted by [[Lysandre]]. Deciding to cooperate with Alain and company, Steven traveled to their destination, a small temple with two pillars in the center. When Alain and Steven held their [[Key Stone]]s to the monument, a staircase of light appeared to lead them further within the ancient ruin. There, they discovered a similar mechanism that summoned a glowing [[Giant Rock]] from underneath the ruin. After Lysandre and his research team began analyzing the giant stone, a {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Rayquaza}} appeared from the sky, Mega Evolved into Mega Rayquaza, and started wreaking havoc on the surrounding area. Alain, Steven, and their Mega Pokémon partners tried to fend off the Legendary Pokémon, but were overwhelmed.
Steven reappeared in the main series in a flashback in ''[[XY075|Rivals: Today and Tomorrow!]]'', in whichwhere he met with [[Sawyer]]. He also appeared in another flashback in ''[[XY133|Coming Apart at the Dreams!]]''.
From ''[[XY134|The Right Hero for the Right Job!]]'' to ''[[XY136|Forming a More Perfect Union!]]'', Steven joined the battle against [[Team Flare]]. He eventually battled alongside Ash, Alain, [[Diantha]], and all of Kalos's [[Gym Leader]]s in order to stop the [[Giant Rock]].
It was revealed in ''[[XY138|The First Day of the Rest of Your Life!]]'' that Steven gave Sawyer a [[Key Stone]]. Later, in ''[[XY140|Till We Compete Again!]]'', Steven and Sawyer were shown at Lysandre Labs, studying the Giant Rock that was recently held there. He proceeded to give Sawyer some information, which Sawyer promptly wrote down in his notebook.
