The story begins with a mysterious figure abandoning Gigi in a moving van. She wakes up to the concerned wife of Norman, who is curious how she ended up in her moving van. Gigi doesn't remember, having amnesia. Norman's wife urges her to see the professor and from him Gigi receives her first Pokemon, Ginkgo the Treecko. Gigi sets off on a journey throughout Hoenn, hoping it will help jog her memory.
Along the way, Gigi has many misadventures where she takes playful jabs at the Pokemon world. Soon Gigi discovers she can talk to her Pokemon, a trait that is uncommon in humans. She also learns that Pokemon have begun to die in battle for unknown reasons. While at first she gathers badges, she eventually abandons the league challenge to save the world from Team Aqua and Team Magma, who each desire to release a legendary Pokemon.
