although oldale is known as a quiet, rural getaway, the lunar new year gives the locale new life. flooded with the warm glow of paper lanterns and lampent, the town transforms into a thrilling terminus for those wishing to celebrate underneath brilliant fireworks and starry night skies.
after the ultra beast war, hoenn begins to heal. the megalopolan invasion may have failed; however, it is clear there is much more at stake. a prophecy revolving around a cyclical meteoroid, the appearance of necrozma and a dangerous and viral alien threaten the safety of the region once more.
with rocket's new boss, the resurgence and reappearance of the crime syndicate's presence is imminent. the league has done its best to repair its reputation, and with the victory of a war under their belt, perhaps it is enough. but the seeds of distrust have already been sown in the ravaged land of this region, causing many to wonder what will grow?
IT HAS BEEN TWO YEARS since Hoenn has opened! I can't thank you all enough. Thinking about all that has happened in the past two years brings me immense joy. From the first raid where characters faced Regirock in a desert ruin to an alien invasion from Ultra Space, Hoenn (the site and the region!) has experienced so much. Of course, not everyone was here from the beginning, but that does not matter at all![break][break][break]
Whether you're a roleplayer that has stuck with us since opening, someone who has popped in and out several times, or someone entirely new to this community, I would like to thank you for making this site such a pleasure to run. I don't plan on dropping this site anytime soon, for there is way too much to explore and write in this setting.[break][break][break]
For those of you wondering about October's events, please refer to the Toxic Takeover thread when it is updated. I will announce when the updates have been made; however, I heavily advise that you wrap up safari zone threads, for a refresh will be imminent![break][break][break]
Below, you can see some anniversary exclusive events! Soar down and take a look![break][break][break]
[break][break] TO EXPRESS OUR GRATITUDE, there are three anniversary packs for you to choose from. These packs have made a return from the previous anniversary event, but are not exactly the same, so look carefully![break][break]
Each of your characters can redeem a pack by posting your selections in this thread; however, the character must have at least one in-character post from September 23rd and onward! Please link the post when you post below.[break][break][break]
[break] 3x pokeball, 1x incense, 2x gacha ticket, 1x premium gacha (please redeem this pack in site shop).[break]
THIS ANNIVERSARY EVENT OCCURS AFTER WAR OF THE WORLDS. The aftermath of the war has altered the course of Hoenn's history forever. Those who have survive the battles begin to grapple with curious effects. Some believe it may be the side-effects of Naganadel poison. Others believe the effects are due to the radiation of the Ultra Wormholes, while others point to trauma as the cause.[break][break][break]
Nevertheless, your characters begin to experience the return of memories of Hoenn's past. Some of the memories ring familiar to the conscious, while others are entirely foreign. Your characters begin to relive scenes from Hoenn's history that they were never a part of before.[break][break][break]
Surprisingly enough, these are not simple moments of deja vu. They're incredibly real, as if you have been thrown into the rift of time before slinging back to whence you came...[break][break][break]
WHAT IS HOENN HISTORIA?
AS YOUR CHARACTERS SLIP IN AND OUT OF THE TIMESTREAM, you will be engaging in writing prompts, challenges and more. When the event begins, everyday for around 15 days, a new prompt will appear in the HOENN HISTORIA EVENT THREAD. This prompt will require you to post with any of your characters for daily rewards.[break][break][break]
Your characters may encounter each other in odd spectral forms as they slip in and out of time. However, it will be impossible to identify one another— unless you make the mutual and conscious effort to.[break][break][break]
Each prompt will either be a repeat of a past event's challenge, or a unique perspective on an event in the past. Nevertheless, I hope Hoenn Historia allows veteran players the chance to relive past events while offering new players a taste of what has happened in the past.[break][break][break]
Although there will be more coming, several new awards have been added. As a note, the "LEAGUE ENDORSEMENT" award has had its image changed to a more fitting image.[break][break][break]
Much thanks to Slowe and Window for a couple of the ideas behind most of these awards! Also, if some awards have appeared in your profile and you're not supposed to have them, please message shiv. Furthermore, if you'd like to hide an award that has had its image changed, please let him know as well![break][break][break]
AS YOU MAY GUESSED FROM THE NEW AWARDS, Pokemon Contests are back on Hoenn! Pokemon Contests are largely self-directed mini-events that you and your fellow roleplayers can participate in for rewards! In order to learn more about this new system, please direct yourself to the Pokemon Contest System thread.

happy anniversary hoenn! I haven’t been here long, nor am I hugely active, but I do enjoy this site and plan on sticking around for a good while. To Hoenn’s second anniversary, and hopefully many more to come!
It's been a pleasure to be on Hoenn for a whole year, and for its 2nd Anniversary!
I'm looking forward to the Hoenn Historia so I can see how it went for you guys while I wasn't around. It'll be a fun crash course to find out what made Hoenn into Hoenn. Hopefully we learn some interesting stuff along the way.
Let me relive all the good times and see what happened in Dahlia's room too. What do you mean this ain't included in the Hoenn Memoria package deal? I demand a refund![break][break] Balder Schwartz - Evolution Pack Tsubasa Yamamoto - Capture pack (Already posted in shop thread)
There will always be some regret that I didn’t jump ship sooner and joined when this site opened! So I came putzing about in early December 2018 and well, good luck trying to get me out of here I’m here to stay and that’s a promise.
Keep doing what you’re doing shiv, it’s what makes Hoenn (the site and the community) thrive!
