Augustine Carter, known to his friends as Saint, arrives with his parents, Norman and Eliza, to their new home in Littleroot Town. Norman has taken the job of Petalburg's Gym Leader after being a trainer in the Goldenrod Gym for some time. Shortly upon his arrival, Saint meets May Birch and her father, Professor James Birch, who informs him of a sudden phenomenon of Pokemon dying in-battle when they should only faint. Saint takes it upon himself to take the League Challenge and figure out the cause of this problem.


Main CharactersEdit

Augustine "Saint" CarterEdit

Saint was living in his hometown of Goldenrod City, where he was the top of his class at the Pokemon Trainer's School, even above his well-known classmate, Whitney. Even though he is 18, and thus legally allowed to go on his independent journey, his parents convinced him to move with them and start his journey in Hoenn. He takes on the League as a means to the end of figuring out things about Pokemon death. Eventually, he won all 8 League Badges and defeated the Elite Four. However, he did not take on the mantle of the Champion due to the fact that he had yet to solve the mystery of Pokemon death, and thus traveled to Johto.

List of Saint's Pokemon --

  • Sampson (Mudkip > Marshtomp > Swampert)
  • Zag (Zigzagoon > Linoone)
  • Charcoal (Poochyena > Mightyena)
  • Sting (Wurmple > Cascoon > Dustox) DEAD

May BirchEdit

May is the daughter of Professor James Birch and Mary Birch of Littleroot Town. She often helped her father with his field research prior to traveling with Saint to gather information. She did battle and defeat the first two Gym Leaders, but then switched her focus to competing in contests. Eventually, she won all 5 Master Rank Pokemon Contests in Lilycove City.

List of May's Pokemon --

Minor CharactersEdit


Wally is a relatively sickly young man who Saint met in Petalburg as Wally was looking to capture his first Pokemon. With Saint's help, he succeeded in capturing a Ralts whom he named Rulu. After moving to Verdanturf with his aunt and uncle, Saint and May met him in Mauville where it was shown that Rulu had evolved into Kirlia. After losing a battle to Saint, Wally decided to remain in Verdanturf for the time being to train.

Zach TurgeonEdit

Zach Turgeon is a researcher with the Devon Corporation who met Saint in the Petalburg Woods. After Saint fought off a Team Magma member, Zach put in a good word for him with the President of the coporation. When Saint met him again after coming through the Rusturf Tunnel, it was shown that Zach had caught a Shroomish he had named Samurai and it had evolved into Breloom. After winning a battle against Samurai, Mack evolved into Hariyama.

Winstrate FamilyEdit

The Winstrate Family lives just north of Mauville City. Their favorite passtime is challenging trainers who pass by to battle the entire family. Saint and May split the family between them, with May facing Vivi and Victoria and Saint facing Victor and Vicki.

She also competes in contests, but only to train her Pokemon against what she sees as weaker competition. She battled both Saint and May in the Verdanturf Pokemon Contest with her Skarmory, Skar-Skar, defeating Charcoal and Skit. She shows little remorse and no qualms about injuring her opponents, hurting Charcoal so badly that Saint was forced to leave her at the Pokemon Center for some time.

Hidden FraternityEdit

There are a group of men situated around Hoenn whose job it is to pass along and teach secret techniques which will help trainers get along on their journey. They communicate with each other so that they know the up-and-coming trainers that they should keep an eye on.

Team Aqua and Team MagmaEdit

The two warring criminal organizations in the Hoenn Region, Team Aqua and Team Magma both use Pokemon to complete their missions of expanding the ocean, and expanding the land, respectively. The two groups hate each other ferverently, particularly their leaders, Archibald "Archie" Swansea and Maximillian "Maxie" Everton

Saint first encountered Team Magma in Petalburg Woods and then outside Rustboro City, keeping them from obtaining the Devon Goods, the package for Captain Stern in Slateport containing a part for his submarine. From that point on Maxie kept tabs on his whereabouts. They had more success of the two, gaining the Meteorite from Meteor Falls to run a machine to make Mt. Chimney erupt. However, upon defeating Maxie to retrieve the rock, Saint found that the machine was not hooked-up and did not work.

Saint did not even know Team Aqua existed until they showed up to thwart Magma's plans to obtain the Meteorite at Meteor Falls. Though appearing to be allies at first, it was later shown that Archie was only using Saint as another way to mess with Maxie's plans in order to carry out his own.

Eventually, both sides met at the top of Mt. Pyre, attempting to steal the Blue and Red Orbs, objects that were said to be able to awaken the legendary Pokemon Groudon and Kyogre. However, Saint and May fought both teams and arrested both leaders and most of their gangs. It was stated later in "Adventures in Johto" that Archie and Maxie had both been given one-year prison sentences for their actions.


  • May is actually older than Saint by one week.
  • Saint is named after his maternal grandfather Augustine. Eliza named him herself as Norman was not in town at the time of Saint's birth.
  • According to Zag, the main English-speaking Pokemon on Saint's team, the ability of Pokemon to learn/speak human language is dependent on where they are. A Pokemon who lives close to a city or in a lab can learn it easier and faster than a Pokemon who lives in the wild.
