TV Mauville (Japanese: テレビキンセツ TV Kinsetsu), known as Hoenn TV (Japanese: ホウエンテレビ Hoenn TV) or TVH prior to Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, is a television station in Hoenn.

Gabby and Ty work for this station, finding strong Trainers to battle and interview.

"Interviewer: I remember one time, way back when, I bought a whole lot of <item>, too. But I had so many left over that I ended up with real buyer's regret. Now I just try to buy what I need. Oops! But I guess talking about myself doesn't really help!"
"Interviewer: Phew! It takes some deep pockets to buy up <amount> <item> at once! I bet that <name> of yours was getting ready for an adventure! I know I always want to have a/an <item> or <amount> for any journey that I’m on!"
  • Unknown:
"Clerk: Well, it was a really great sale, so I guess it's natural to want to stock up!"
"Interviewer: Hmm, hmmm... I guess that <name> must really know how to spot a deal. Let's see, the total for that purchase was... Just PokémonDollar.png<amount>?! Whoa! That really was a great deal! Well, that's all we have time for today, but catch us again for more of the best deals! Bye for now, bargain hunters!"

I see lots of drama for this one."

"Li'l MC: OK! Off we go! Hmm, where should we go to check the latest trends?"

Search2Catch

Please feel free to edit this section to add missing information and complete it.
Reason: How does a Pokémon run away? Might Roar or something do it? Or does that quote happen for another reason, or perhaps even not at all naturally?.

A program that reviews Trainers' encounters with hidden Pokémon. This program updates whenever the DexNav recognizes a hidden Pokémon and the Pokémon is either encountered or scared away. If the Pokémon runs away without being encountered due to the player entering another battle or moving too far away, the program does not update.

""Search2Catch"! It's the program where we cover the amazing encounters that bring Pokémon to their Trainers! A Trainer named <name> found a hidden Pokémon in <location>."
"I had my fingers crossed for him/her! <name>! There's a/an cute/lovely/great/epic Pokémon right there in front of you! Do your best! Your fated encounter is waiting!"
  • If the player took less than 60 seconds to encounter the Pokemon:
"<name>'s sneaky steps were beautiful and light! I think it only took <number> second(s) to reach that Pokémon!"
  • If the player took 60 seconds or more to encounter the Pokemon:
"<name> is quite the cautious one. He/She's taking his/her time to approach slowly."
  • If the player runs and scares it away:
"But then... <name> walked right on by! <name>! Oh, <name>! How blind are you?! Wasn't it in your field of vision? Couldn't you see that cute <Pokémon>?! I bet you're just the kind of Trainer who complains about how they can never meet new Pokémon! I'm so disappointed!"
  • If the player walks and scares it away:
"And so <name> walked on incredibly slowly! One step...and then another... <name> is being so careful! And that's why... That's why... it got away! <name> looked a bit sad as he/she watched the <Pokémon> fade into the distance."
  • If the player encountered the Pokémon and...
  • The player defeated it:
"Then a Lv. <number> <Pokémon> was encountered... The <Pokémon> was driven back by a powerful attack, though! Being a strong Trainer is lovely, but you end up expecting more from your opponents. Hopefully we can all find that one special Pokémon someday!"
  • The player caught it:
"Then <name> finally found that one special Lv. <number> <Pokémon>! They fell for each other the moment they met! The <Pokémon> looked so happy going into the Poké Ball!"
"Then <name> met a Lv. <number> <Pokémon>. It looks like our fearless Trainer was driven back by a fierce attack! Seeing <name> run for the Pokémon Center was a bit sad."
  • The player ran:
"Then <name> finally found that one special level <number> <Pokémon>! <name> ran away, though! I was so disappointed! Pokémon are nothing to be scared of! They're just waiting for you to approach them!"
  • It ran away:
"Then <name> finally found that one special Lv. <number> <Pokémon>! Although the only one who thought so might have been <name>! That <Pokémon> ran away in flash! Of course, I just felt so sorry for him/her that I couldn't find the words to say."
"That's all for today's stories of new encounters. Be sure to use the DexNav for more lovely new encounters that are hiding in your everyday life."
TM Treasures

A show that talks about TMs the player or another player has used recently and ones they have never used. Whenever a player uses a TM, the program randomly selects an unused TM in the player's Bag and reports on them both. If there is no unused TM in the player's Bag, the program does not change from its previous report.

"This episode of TM Treasures is brought to you by Poké Mart. Today's TM Treasure is... There it is! That disc shape! It's TM<unused number>! It hasn't even been used once. TM<unused number>... Is this <name>'s Bag? The TM for <unused move> slumbers inside the Bag just waiting to be awakened. TM<used number>, the TM for <used move>, has been used though, so why?! TMs can be used as many times as you like! Before we go, we'll teach you the words to wake it up!"
  • Randomly selected ending:
"TMs... aren't just for show! Thank you."
"TMs... are worthless if you don't use them! Thank you."
"TMs you don't use... are just like scrap wood! Thank you."
"Your TMs... are crying! Thank you."
"TMs... You're missing out if you don't use 'em! Thank you."
