The '''Hoenn''' region (Japanese: '''{{tt|ホウエン地方|ホウエンちほう}}''' ''Hoenn-chihō'') is a [[region]] of the [[Pokémon world]]. It is located south of [[Sinnoh]]<!--AG187-->. It is the setting of [[Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire Versions|Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire]], {{v2|Emerald}}, [[Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire|Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire]]. It was the third [[maincore series]] region to be introduced.
Hoenn is inspired by the real-world Japanese main island of {{wp|Kyushu}}. The names of most of the cities in Hoenn are made of two words put together (Little Root, Fort Tree, Slate Port, Ever Grande, etc.) rather than colors or plants as [[Kanto]] and [[Johto]] had done. [[Professor Birch]] of [[Littleroot Town]] offers the [[starter Pokémon]] known as {{p|Treecko}}, {{p|Torchic}}, or {{p|Mudkip}} to {{pkmn|Trainer}}s beginning their journey of this vast land.
