BEASTS BATTED BACK; MOSSDEEP IN REPAIR
WRITTEN BY GABBY MARYANN
MOSSDEEP CITY — Thanks to the heroic efforts of many, Mossdeep has been saved from sheer destruction. Rebuilding efforts have commenced immediately due to The League refusing a repeat of Slateport's ruination. Despite the victorious outcome of The League's response, the public has been left shaken and curious about the existence of the wormhole assailants. One creature was last seen rocketing away in a similar fashion to Mossdeep's space shuttles.
Councilwoman freya morningstar (pictured right) had participated in the battles with one of these creatures. Of her experience, she testifies, "I thought that we might lose everything. but then I found faith in The League, in those who have sacrificed their lives and livelihoods to protect this region, and that faith saved us all." However, investigations are still underway about the origin and genesis of these creatures. Witnesses described them as otherworldly, alien, and completely opposite to what a Pokemon should look like in terms of anatomy. Despite the uncertainty, Councilwoman Morningstar says on behalf of The League: "In fear I find courage and bravery. if they do come back, this time, we will be ready. We ask you to continue to stand with us, to stand by us, and to trust us in these trying times."
In the meantime, The League has requested further assistance with Mossdeep's reconstruction. As a center of research and technological advancement, Mossdeep City possesses a distinguished significance for Hoenn's reputation, prompting The League to invest heavily into its restoration. While Unova may be heralded for its grand skyscrapers and Pasio may be admired for its artificial island, Hoenn's investments into space have the capacity to expand our world's possibilities to the sky and beyond.
A NEW DISCOVERY: "MEGA EVOLUTIONS"
WRITTEN BY @finn
EVERGRANDE CITY — A new phenomena called "mega evolution" has been discovered in the Hoenn region following the events of the Mossdeep City attacks. These evolutions are catalyzed by stones dubbed "mega stones" by The League's R&D Department. Similar to evolutionary stones such as water or fire stones, these "mega stones" are able to evolve a pokemon as those two might. However, the latter is a only a temporary transformation which reverts after a set period of time.
Head Scientist, Lucas Lane (pictured left), has commented on the discovery on behalf of himself and persephone amavi . He suggests that "the most exciting thing about mega stones is their possible uses. We don't yet know the entire scope of their capabilities." Indeed, the mega stones seem to resonate with curious energies which are currently undergoing further investigation.
Although mega stones are an exciting revelation in pokemon research, The League advises against dangerous expeditions to find these relics. Furthermore, not only are these stones rare, but they require a "mega accessory," a physical catalyst one must wear to activate the potential of the mega stone. Such accessories are only given out by The League but after proper screenings and a hefty cost. Certainly, due to the immense power of mega evolutions, The League is cautious of the possible risks of public access.
However, Lane possesses an optimistic outlook for the discovery's potential: "I think it'll be a great solution to problems that are tough to tackle with normal pokemon. Recently one of our rangers was able to move a beached wailord back to water with the help of their pokemon's mega evolution."
NEW CHAMPION APPOINTED TO PROVISIONAL SEAT
WRITTEN BY OLIVER WHITEWHIRL
RUSTBORO CITY — After Talia Bosch's abdication, the public was left wondering about her possible successor. Although the champion does not necessarily inhabit a political station, the role possesses a symbolic significance of security, pride and hope for Hoenn's people. Finally, after a long drawn search, The League has appointed ALEXANDER STONE (pictured below) to be champion for a temporary term.
In response to his appointment, Stone says, "I will give my life for the region and its people. All I ask for is your trust." In the aftermath of CEO Harold Stone's assassination, the ex-Gym Leader has worked in conjunction with The League to protect the region's strongholds while looking for a suitable replacement for his station in Rustboro.
With Stone's promotion, eyes are now on The League to pursue Elite Four appointments. Commissioner dahlia goode is currently discussing the development of the Pokemon League with officials, screening for suitable candidates to not only promote the region as an attractive cultural center for pokemon battling, but for the betterment of new generations of trainers. Goode says, "It is undoubtedly important for us to find our paragons. During these challenging times, we hope to shed light upon the brightest of talents who can lead us to finish the work we are in, who can salve the nation's wounds, and who can care for those who have borne the battles for their loved ones."
Currently, The League is processing Stone's transition into the champion's seat while deliberating upon the infrastructure for the Hoenn league.

they may not be listed by name due to privacy concerns but a special thanks and acknowledgement to those that stood up to the threats in mossdeep. these foreign pokemon demonstrated a power on a scale we have never seen before. i have no doubt that mossdeep would no longer be inhabitable if not for these brave heroes.
