Five years ago in the Hoenn Region, Mossdeep Labs preformed a top secret experiment using technology from several neighboring regions. Though it was promised that the project would be made public after its launch, the project failed horribly and was never made public. Because of this, a quiet mistrust arose between several of the regions involved. The Sinnoh, Hoenn, Kanto, and even Johto regions were beginning to close borders to keep the other regions from using their technology, be it a machine to restore fossils, or even the newest Poketech App.
Closed borders and tension between regions caused for a significant decline in the amount of trainers in each respective region. With the exception of the Unova region, only a handful of trainers would keep to the trade, the divided regions unable to support trainers on their own.
The distrust became stronger over the next five years until finally, to calm this issue once and for all, five pokemon legends, using their influence in the pokemon world, created the Spectrum Islands, and with the reluctant permission of the main regions, invited trainers to take the ultimate challenge.
"Who can make it to Battle Islands Final Challenge? Are you ready to become a pokemon legend?"
The event seemed to be similar to a gym challenge, but very few details about it were disclosed. Almost all the public knew was that the event took place in a group of islands far from the disputing regions, Originally an empty region save for a small population of pokemon, it had recently gone under some changes in preparation for the event. These were the Spectrum Islands.
On all the fliers and announcements for the island there was this message:
"Sponsored by Elite Four Lance, Pokemaster Red, The Pokemon Professor Oak, and two anonymous supporters."
But trouble is brewing on the Spectrum Islands, and for a particular group of criminals, there was an entirely different sort of invite.
"Loyal members from the teams Galactic and Rocket, come to the Spectrum Islands, for I have need of your skills."
Though there are many entries, only the select few with the most potential are given the ticket and badge case required to get to the island. These lucky trainers wait to board the plane that will take them to the Spectrum Islands, and the greatest pokemon adventure to this day.
