Top 5 Pokémon Tracks: The Hoenn Region

#5: Littleroot Town

Littleroot Town is located in southwestern Hoenn. It is where players of the Hoenn-based games start their Pokémon journeys. Hoenn's region-exclusive professor, Professor Birch, has a laboratory in the town that he uses for research on Pokémon. The southwest corner of town is Professor Birch's Laboratory. Here, Pokémon Trainers just beginning their quest can receive either a Treecko, Torchic, or Mudkip from Professor Birch. Instead of obtaining the player's starter Pokémon here, the player must gain it on Route 101 while saving Professor Birch during the storyline.

#4: Battle! Deoxys

Deoxys is an alien-like bipedal Pokémon that has four Formes, each focused on a different stat. The main components that are constant for all four Formes are a dominant reddish orange colour, a bluish-green face, and three bluish-green dots on its back arranged in a triangle. Deoxys was formed by the mutation of a virus from space. The Pokémon is highly intelligent; its brain appears to be the crystal in its chest. This organ is capable of firing laser beams. Additionally, Deoxys can use psychokinetic powers, which are useful for its signature move Psycho Boost. As shown in the anime, it is able to regenerate any part of its body that it may have lost during a battle. It has also demonstrated the ability to create an aurora without changing its Forme. These auroras can have different electromagnetic wavelengths and are used to communicate with other Deoxys.

#3: Battle! Vs. Gym Leader

A Gym Leader, is the Trainer class name given to the Gym Leaders when they are battled in the Pokémon games. Despite Gym Leaders themselves being introduced in Generation I, the Trainer class did not appear onscreen until Generation II, and it has been incorporated into every game since. Gym Leaders are integral within the Pokémon universe. Occasionally, in order for one to advance in the game, the player must challenge and defeat the leader of a Gym. Each game is designed in such a way that the player will not be able to move forward until they receive a Gym Badge which will, in turn, either allow them to use an HM to overcome natural obstacles or trigger a necessary event to continue with the game. It is one of the player's main objectives to collect eight Gym Badges, allowing them to challenge the Elite Four.

The Gym Leaders in Hoenn are in order: Roxanne, Brawly, Watson, Flannery, Norman, Winona, Liz/Tate and Wallace.

#2: Sealed Chamber

The Sealed Chamber is a location in Hoenn. It can be reached by diving on Route 134. It is not a common place to visit, as it is well hidden under the water and through the currents on Route 134. Legends are told about the Sealed Chamber, but only few people from Pacifidlog Town know its true existence. It must be visited to unlock the caves that hold the Legendary titans.

#1: Battle! Champion Steven

Steven Stone is a skilled Trainer who specializes in Steel-type Pokémon. He is the Champion of the Hoenn region's Pokémon League in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire, as well as the canonical Hoenn League Champion in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver. A collector of rare stones, Steven is the son of the president of the Devon Corporation, and makes his home in Mossdeep City.
