    Part 1- Introduction

    Welcome to the world of Pokemon Solar and Lunar Versions. Pokemon Solar and Lunar takes you on a journey across the region of Isho and meet over 100 new pokemon while on a quest to take down the evil Team Cosmos and become the Pokemon League champion.

    Part 2- The Story

    The story of Pokemon Solar and Lunar takes place in the region of Isho, which consists of two landmasses divided by a sea. The western landmass is the largest and with the most establishments, and the eastern landmass is the smallest with the fewest towns. A normally peaceful region, the evil Team Cosmos has been wreaking havoc across the land, stealing pokemon and rare items. Who can stop their rampage of chaos?

    In the peaceful town of Tinygem, a 10-year old kid wakes up in the rays of the morning sun, looking forward to getting their first pokemon and starting a journey to become a Pokemon Master. In this case, we will use the male character, Max. When Max walks down the stairs, he finds that three Team Cosmos grunts and their mysterious leader, Mystique, have broken into his house. The grunts start battling his mother and her Yawnie. Max's mom ends up losing to the grunts’ pokemon, then Mystique commands the grunts go through the bookshelf. They rummage through it, grab two very old books titled "The Legend of the Solar Being" and "The Legend of the Lunar Being” and run off with them. Mystique laughs and says, "Sorry little boy, but you can't stop Team Cosmos from obtaining what I rightfully deserve!", then she walks out of the house. Max runs to his mom to see if she is alright. She says that Team Cosmos stole a very important book explaining about the legendary pokemon of Isho. What would Team Cosmos want with information on the Pokemon of the Sun and Moon???

    Suddenly, the main character’s childhood friend, Emma, comes into the house to remind the main character that they have to go to Professor Holly to get their first pokemon. She sees the mess Team Cosmos made in Max’s house and asks his mom what happened. Max’s mom explains to Emma what happened, then tells Max and Emma to go ahead to Professor Spruce’s lab and she will deal with the mess. The two kids then head off to Route 301 and on to Ruburgh Town, where Professor Holly’s laboratory is located.

    When Max and Emma arrive in the quiet mountainous town of Ruburgh, they go straight to Professor Holly's lab, which sits on a hill overlooking the town. Professor Holly greets the two kids and offers them a choice of three starter pokemon: Aquotter, Embear, and Treecoon. Max chooses his first pokemon, then accepts a Pokedex and 5 Poke Balls from Professor Spruce, then starts to walk off. But once Emma gets her pokemon and items, she says she challenges you to a battle. Whether Max wins or loses, Professor Holly is impressed with Max and Emma’s battling, and recommends that they take on the Pokemon League Challenge. Max and Emma are interested in the proposition, and Professor Holly tells them to go to Sappharbor City to take on the first gym. Emma takes off first, followed by Max, both determined to get to Sappharbor City. And for Max to get revenge on the evil Team Cosmos…

The largest is the western landmass, which hosts most of the cities and towns, and is mountainous and has a lot of forest. The eastern landmass is the smallest and shaped like a crescent. It is a tropical region with a volcano in the middle of it. The theme of the towns and cities are gems and stones.

    The hometown of the main character is Tinygem Town, situated in the Western landmass of the region. The towns following are Ruburgh Town, Sappharbor City, Emerwood City, Diamopolis City, Amberelic City, Celequartz Town and Frostone City. Located south of the landmass is Tropal Island, a small isle filled with tropical plants and Pokemon. On the eastern landmass lies Dentech City, Igneoridge Town and Pearlshore City. In the ocean is Blucoral Town and the Pokemon League.
