Map of the Gaiien Region (truncated, lacks northern peninsula and islands)
Gaiien was incorporated as an autonomous region in 96 CR and its league was established in 107 CR. It lies west of Hoenn and its main exports are raw materials, including metal ores, rare earth metals, precious metals, wood, cereal crops, fruit/vegetables, and fish.
Gym Leaders and their specialties:
1. Luciana “Tierra” Rodriguez – Ground – Dust Badge – Umber Village
2. Alex “Hawthorn” Wong – Grass – Seed Badge – Verdure Town
3. Bryony “Belladonna” Jourdain – Poison – Venom Badge – Porphyry City
4. Brent “Pyre” Carter – Fire – Pyre Badge – Russet Town
5. Galen “Lord Ironhelm” Richter – Steel – Gear Badge – Port Brac
6. Mikoto “Tsukuyomi” Arata – Ghost – Oblivion Badge – Sere Island
7. Genevieve “Nocturna” Park – Dark – Starlight Badge – Sunset Mountain
8. Matti “Polaris” Virtanen – Ice – Frost Badge – Sastruga Fjord
Gaiien’s league is famously “wild”, spread over a large area with only the main roads and parks patrolled by rangers. Trainers intending to earn badges are required to have an adult trainer license (18 years old or 8 outregion badges) in contrast to more populous regions where only a junior trainer license is required (10 years old). As a result, some junior trainers travel to other regions to begin earning badges, while others train with their pokemon in towns until they turn 18. Backcountry hiking is not recommended without a team of strong (lv. 40+) pokemon.
Due to the young age of the Gaiien League, wild pokemon are often unused to human presence and will attack aggressively to defend territory rather than to test a potential partner, complicating pokemon capture. Several pokeball manufacturers offer rebates on the pokeballs of released pokemon, although disappointments can generally be avoided by not pursuing fleeing wild pokemon.
There is a community college in Port Littoral and Pokemon Professor offices in Port Littoral, Porphyry City, and Port Brac. Many students travel to other regions for post-secondary education and there are several government stipends to assist.
Relations between second- and third-crossing settlers are cordial. There is a strong second-crossing clan presence in the northern areas.

@Keleri I really should, and even thought about it >:3 Darcy, the one for Team Rocket, was going to be used for an RP, but it died. The other 7 were going to be used for a private RP with someone else XD but I can always make stories up with them :3 Also, Sol and Luna are like the Jessie and James dynamic duo with their talking Glameow and silly Mr. Mime being like Meowth and Wobbuffet XDApr 12, 2018
@Keleri That's cool :3 researcher characters are my favorite because then I don't have to dumb down to beginner level in terms of knowledge on Pokemon XD Thank god... I also have 2 parents who would like to visit that are the parents of the 7 aforementioned researchers, and then 8 baddies that would love to have some, as well XD (one's from Team Rocket as an admin, and the other 7 are from a newly created team I made after Team Galactic disbanded, called Team Nebula, or Team Neo-Galactic).Apr 11, 2018
I have a few researchers who would love to come over XD (when I mean a few, I mean more like 10 XD they all have specialties in differing types and will definitely love to see this. Also, they are all above the age of 21, with one in particular being 42).Apr 10, 2018
