BLACKWELL DEAD; ROCKET DISBANDED
WRITTEN BY @finn
VERDANTURF & FALLARBOR — The League has released official reports over an event that many are calling the failed invasion of Verdanturf and Fallarbor. Team Rocket allegedly dispatched a large coalition of their forces in an attempt to take over both towns while the League were preoccupied with the unknown threats in Mossdeep. Due to a joint operation headed by FERNANDO SILPH, the League was able to prevent the towns from being ransacked while arresting a majority of the Team Rocket members present.
FERNANDO SILPH has credited kyle lopez (pictured left) as an instrumental factor in the operation's success. The council man has gone on record earlier today with this to say on the matter, "We could not have done this without Mister Lopez. He single-handedly held off the Team Rocket Boss, one of Team Rockets most powerful members, until League officials could arrive."
Reports indicate that the Team Rocket Boss, SILAS BLACKWELL, was killed by FERNANDO SILPH and unnamed League members during the altercation. Silph has gone on record saying that the other members were not named due to privacy concerns and as a protective measure in case of retaliation.
With the head of the organization dead and a large bulk of the organization apprehended and awaiting trial, many now consider Team Rocket disbanded and no longer a threat. The League still encourages citizens to keep a vigilant watch, but many of Hoenn's populace can feel a wave of relief now that the region no longer faces such a threat.
LIBERATED SLATEPORT SLATED TO REOPEN
WRITTEN BY GABBY MARYANN
SLATEPORT CITY — Following the failed invasion of Verdanturf and Fallarbor, the League has found the momentum to liberate Slateport from Team Rocket's hold. Residual members have either fled or have been apprehended by several forces led by council members freya morningstar, FERNANDO SILPH, and kim cole-essam. dahlia goode has organized reconstruction efforts and is working with Devon Corp. and Silph Co. to help its former residents return back to the port city they used to call home.
Slateport now faces the backlash of the economic disruption caused by the invasion of Slateport. While the city is located at a spot many deem the perfect hub for Hoenn's exports the abrupt destruction of businesses and property leave the city with the daunting task of recovery. Lilycove has stepped up as the region's new trade center and many entrepreneurs are wary of having to uproot themselves again to set up shop in a war torn city. Analysts predict that Slateport will take on a more service based economy until the city can stand on its feet again.
Many Hoenn based businesses have volunteered their resources in aiding the city with a short-term recovery plan. GrimaldiTM, a company specializing in the production and manufacturing of technical machines, has extended their financial aid alongside Benoit Armaments of Thomas Benoit's affiliation (pictured right). In particular, the Benoits have been responsible for providing viable housing while simultaneously renovating destroyed properties.
Lastly, Cooper Ranch is hosting their own Slateport reopening celebration with the famous Alolan sport of Mantine Surfing. The event will be recorded in real time and livestreamed on HNN's new online subscription service.

On behalf of the Grimaldi company, we give our deepest sympathies to people who have suffered loss. We know that no amount of money or donations given to repair Slateport can help heal the wounds left behind but we hope we can at least help improve damaged lives, if even just a little bit.
We are relieved Hoenn is at peace and wish everyone the best moving forward.
My own heart goes out to everyone who has fought for Hoenn and I can say with absolute certainty, we intend to honor those who have fallen to protect it. ❤
