Professor Lotus, a Professor of Pokémon Philosophy, has written you a recommendation and is willing to give you your very first Pokémon on your trip to Romanti Village, where Hawthorne University is located. Your father is set to meet you there as he is a tutor of Pokémon Battling and is eagerly awaiting your arrival.
However, trouble is looming. Strange figures have been spotted all over the region and there have been whispers of their intentions to awaken the Phoenix once more. With your journey to University ahead of you, and Nocturne Town but a speck in your eye, how will you and your Pokémon make history?
Just as Hawthorne began to fall completely into disrepute, there came a sighting of the legendary Pokémon Ho-oh. The legends said that its feathers were thought to bring joy, and that all who saw it were to be eternally happy. Ho-oh traveled across the land, gracing it with its powers; hope and happiness quickly returned to Hawthorne once more. From this moment on, the people of Hawthorne began to worship Ho-oh, not as a God, but as a bringer of good fortune and joy.
Ho-oh traveled throughout Hawthorne, and took its peace in the region where the King had once lived. This region was once a beautiful, serene paradise, which was ravaged by the onslaught of war. Upon demonstrating its glory to all the citizens of Hawthorne, Ho-oh spread its wings, and its entire body began to disperse into flakes of ash. As a phoenix, Ho-oh is believed to live for hundreds of years. Once that life has been lived, it ignites fiercely and is reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix rises, reborn anew to live again. This time, Ho-oh did not rise from the ashes.
The old, elemental stones have become extremely rare in their own right. They have unlimited value in Hawthorne, so are seldom held by ordinary people. Nine are believed to be stones of evolutionary power: Fire, Water, Grass, Thunder, Sun, Bright, Dusk, Dawn and Moon. The final stone is known to be much rarer, for it has a single purpose: to raise a Pokémon from its own ashes. This is the Stone of Rebirth.
