The third game of the Ruby Destiny Series


Introduction
"A simple greeting creates many smiles."

Hi everyone. I am destinedjagold, and I am the author/creator of the Ruby Destiny series.
I present to you the third and final game of the Ruby Destiny Series, which is Life of Guardians.
And yes, unfortunately, this is the last game of the RD series. Reason? Well, life has become a hassle when you're growing up, or growing old. Time should be spent on more important things for my human survival. :P
So, yeah. Anyway, I hope you will enjoy playing this hack.
Mind the bugs, by the way.
And of, if you're lost in the game, try and download the guide tool I made. It's a walkthrough. ;)
Anyway, enjoy~

Story
"Everything and everyone has a story to tell."

Prologue...
Spoiler:
Rescue Rangers' Prologue...
A young girl who just reached 10 was having a birthday party with four friends who likes POKéMON, just like her, but before they could even start, a mysterious aura came inside the room and made them faint.

Soon, the girl woke up in a forest which was unfamiliar. Then strange voices was heard. Curiosity and unfamiliarity, she took a look and to her surprise, a Chikorita and a Torchic came towards her, and talking. Asking how a Pikachu reached in the place, she exclaims that she's human, however, she later found out that she turned into a POKéMON; a Pikachu.

Having no place to go, she joined their rescue team called 'Team Go-Getters'. The purpose of a rescue team is to help other POKéMON who are in trouble, which requires exploring new places in the Hevah Region.

Later, during their mission in Garden Field, she found out that her friend, Rose, was chased by a group of POKéMON who tries to eliminate her. She also found out that Rose turned into an Eevee.

They later found a Dratini, which was also one of her friends; Steve, in Mt. Krystal, and Mark, the Taillow, in Ilex Forest after they escaped the hunters' aircraft. And soon, she found Jagold, the Sandslash, who helped them return the trust of the POKéMON in the square where their base stood. Now, all they need to do is to find a way to return to their world.

Soon, a shadow started to be a threat to the Hevah region, which has caused chaos and destruction in the region. And after they stopped the shadow, Giratina, in Mt. Iniquity, peace, once again, reign over the region.

However, during this peace was the shadow's perfect opportunity to recover. However, Giratina, to truly cause ultimate chaos, needs a host with a strong mental and physical ability to be able to walk on the surface, which then chose Jagold, the Sandslash, who visited the ruined place of the battle.

Jagold had a battle with the shadow, and won, however, the shadow took over his shadow, causing him to unable to give the final strike, and the shadow overwhelmed him.

The news reached Team Go-Getters through Breatherna in Oceania Isle, which is where Jagold is, inside the Tower of Fate, in Oceania Isle. The Tower of Fate is also the place where they can return to their world. That was Giratina's plan, to destroy the tower.

Soon, they found a Dark Pikachu who knows them better than themselves. Torchic and Chikorita were confused. The Dark Pikachu told them that he sealed their memories to save them from Tyranitar's wrath.

The tower was full of mazes and puzzles, but they successfully went through it and met Jagold, and asked them to eliminate him, but she refused, which then the shadow took all of them in Jagold's mind, which was already overwhelmed by darkness.

After they defeated the threat, Giratina, who controls him, Jagold was free.

Soon, they reached the gate where they can finally return, but a POKéMON who guards the gate blocks them. It was Chaomega, who told them that Jagold was meant to die, but since he didn't, they created another future, different from the future which was meant to be.

One world with two futures would cause destructive results, and to heal it, Jagold must die, and Chaomega battles and wins with moves unfamiliar to them. Chaomega landed in front of Jagold, preparing the final beam, but she stood between them, asking to stop. This made Chaomega disregard it's attack and sets them free. Chaomega quickly sends them back to their own world, leaving Chikorita and Torchic behind with a broken heart.

After they left the gate, Chaomega went to Breatherna who was feeling ill. Chaomega tells her that he didn't told anything about what would happen to Team Go-Getters, that now they entered the future, another one's taking place. Breatherna was feeling ill because she can't handle two realities, and soon, Chaomega witnessed her torn apart into two.

Chikorita and Torchic tried to move on with the Dark Pikachu to be a rescue team.

Reign of Legends' Prologue...
2 years after they left the POKéMON world, a young boy started his journey in the Gento Region, east from the Hevah region. His journey took place in the real future.

After he acquired his second badge, he went to Bug Forest to continue his journey, who later found a Celebi crying for help. The grass POKéMON took him into the future. He found out that his friend, Blitz, was controlled by Shadow Lugia, who destroyed Rentelbud City. After he won the battle, Celebi returned him to the real time.

Soon, in Francia Forest, he found Royal Darkness trying to capture Palkia, but turns out that they were warped into a different location. Now Palkia found the person it seeks, and sent him to the false reality, the other reality, which Team Go-Getters has created. Everything was completely different. Blitz and Krona explained what happened, that in both worlds, 2 years ago, Diark, the leader of Royal Darkness, found the shadow stone which he used to turn Lugia into Shadow Lugia.

However, in his world, the other Lugia died because of the failed attempt of Royal Darkness capturing the two Lugias, but in Blitz's world, Royal Darkness successfully caught both, but one escaped and bore an offspring. And the offspring was a Baby Lugia, which they gave to him to help him save his future.

Soon, a POKéMON Ranger asked his help to stop Royal Darkness from turning Lugia into Shadow Lugia, and he agrees. And in the Royal Darkness base, he found Blitz who was helping out as well. However, after they defeated the Royal Darkness with Shadow Lugia by their side, it escaped with Blitz. He failed to stop them.

Soon after, the ranger called him, asking for help to stop Shadow Lugia in Cherrygrove City. He found an island south from the city, and inside, he met a red-hooded man who told him that he was the 'Key of Hope'. The man then disappeared, and so he moves on. After he defeated Shadow Lugia, Blitz was finally free from the shadow's control, but enraged, it attacked him once again with anger, however, it's rampage made it confused, giving them the opportunity to escape. Now, Blitz was sent to the rangers' headquarters to recover.

The rangers then found Shadow Lugia's location; in Vermillion City. By this time, the trainer was already competing in the POKéMON League. And after he became the champion, he went home where his brother, Kevin, gave him a ticket which will take him to Vermillion.

He found a mysterious island north-west from Vermillion, which he enters and found the red-hooded man once again, and battles him.

Later, he found out that he was Jagold who died two years ago, and his soul was trapped in Giratina, who then was defeated by Team Go-Getters. After Giratina was defeated, the shadow stone appeared, which is where Jagold's soul was inside as well. After Diark used the stone, it fused with Lugia and turned into Shadow Lugia, and Jagold's soul now has a new master.

Soon after, he faced Shadow Lugia for the final time, and after he successfully eliminated it with Lugia, it vanished and turned to dust, and soon, Jagold was free.

Life of Guardians' Story...
In the altered world where Team Go-Getters accidentally created lives a young girl who always dreamed tobe a Guardian Trainer after she heard all about it, even though she has no idea how to be come one, but still, she's determined to achieve her goal to be a Guardian Trainer.

One day, she can no longer stay home, for she wants to achieve her goal, and so she went out to try and befriend a POKéMON so she can travel the region and learn about Guardian Trainers. Unfortunately, she was stopped by her childhood friend, Kevin, and when they decided to go back home, a shaman was running for her dear life. She was chased by two members of the Dark Organization, trying to steal her POKéMON.

Unsure of what to do, she asked both kids to choose one POKéMON from her and battle the grunts. Later, they successfully defeated the grunts, which then fled. To thank them, she gave them the POKéMON they used as a reward.

And now that she has a POKéMON with her side, she will finally be able to start her own journey to achieve her goal to be a Guardian Trainer, But the region's been chaotic since the rise of the Dark Organization. Trials await her in the future, and a strange dream's confusing her. Will she be able to achieve her goal, or will she drive her destiny into the wrong path of life?

Q: I keep freezing in Low Point Path! Where's this Cold Scarf thing!?
A: You can only obtain Cold Scarf after you get your third symbol/badge and obtained Rock Smash.

Q: Okay, I saved the guy with the ranger and knights in Low Point Path. Now what?

Q: How can I change Shaymin/Giratina's forms?
A: Buy some "Shiny Gems" from Jayson in the Tower of Fate. You can change Felinar's form as well.

Q: I wanted to have Shaymin, but I got Giratina instead, why!?
A: In the Good/Bad Side of the game, you can only get Shaymin if you successfully "talked" to the sprouts in Lost Shadow, or if you talked to the green diamond inside Dusk Path's Mineral Cave. In Normal Mode, you can pick your pick.

Q: Is there any Master Balls available?
A: Nope...

Q: Why are trainers giving very very low prize money?
A: I did this on purpose to increase the game's difficulty, since this is the last game of the Ruby Destiny series...

Q: In the chip battle mini-game, my opponent says it's a tie where he clearly won (or vice-versa), is this a glitch?
A: Yes, but I was too damn lazy to fix it. You won't lose money if you lose, anyway...

Q: Can you tell us Gabrieleon's locations?
A: Sure, but this is not in order: Guardia Path, Ice's Edge Path, Current Path, Dusk Path(below Current Path), Coral Sea, Fruits' Basket, Oceania Sea, Hevah Academy and finally, back on the peak of a mountain in Dusk Path.

Q: How can I get to Togen Island?
A: Togen Island is only accessible if you chose the Bad Side of the game, but you can only get there once.

Q: How can I get to Ilex Forest?
A: The entrance is in Green Leaf.

Q: Where can I get Rintah Town's symbol?
A: Champion Joseph.

Q: I got the fossil from Mirage Tower, but where can I revive it?
A: The scientists in the Ranger HQ in Silkwind Town. The revived POKéMON can only evolve once, depending on its stats.

Q: What are those other islands in the region map?
A: This post might help.

Q: Alice isn't showing up in Leon Empire! I already defeated Giratina, the vessels and Zah in the Dragon Tower.
A: Princess Alice will show up there after you talk to Chaomega in the Tower of Fate, and then after you talked to Giratina and/or Shaymin in Lost Shadow.

Q: I already caught/met/fought the four Dragon Gods, but Chaomega won't let me start the fragment collecting quest!
A: This bug will be fixed in version 16. If that patch is not yet available, then send me your saved file via PM. I can't help you if you'll send me your saved state, however. I need your saved file.
A: Go to the Tower of Fate and talk to the pink pyramid inside.
