In {{game|Emerald}}, Steven is a powerful, wandering Trainer who gave up competing seriously to spend more time looking for rare rocks and stones, which he claims he would {{m|Waterfall|climb waterfalls}} to find. Fittingly, the {{player}} can find and challenge him in the upper area of [[Meteor Falls]] after they defeat the new Champion, [[Wallace]].

In {{game|Platinum}}, the person who gives the player their [[villa]] in the [[Resort Area]] mentions that the man who gave him the villa came to [[Sinnoh]] to collect rare stones. After collecting the stones, he left the region with all the items in the villa. This mysterious previous owner may in fact be Steven.

Steven also appears in {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}, introducing himself as the Hoenn Champion. The player first meets him when they leave the [[Pokémon Fan Club]] in [[Vermilion City]] after collecting {{OBP|Copycat|character}}'s {{Key|IV|Lost Item}}, where he will appear and inform them that there have been reports of either a {{p|Latios}}{{sup/4|SS}} or {{p|Latias}}{{sup/4|HG}} {{pkmn2|roaming}} [[Kanto]]. The player meets him a second time after defeating {{ga|Red}} on [[Mt. Silver]], where he will appear in the [[Silph Co.]] building in [[Saffron City]] and let the player choose one of three colored stones: the Green Stone, the Red Stone or the Blue Stone. Depending on which color is picked, he will give the player one of the three Hoenn [[starter Pokémon]]. He can later be found in the [[Pewter Museum of Science]], examining a shelf. After visiting and speaking to him there, he will return to the Silph Co. building and offer to [[trade]] a Beldum for a {{p|Forretress}}.

If the player has the [[Enigma Stone]] and enters the Pewter Museum of Science, an event will occur in which Steven will be talking to one of the museum's researchers. When he is spoken to, he will notice the Enigma Stone and have the researcher examine it. The researcher will extract the [[Soul Dew]] from the stone and give it to the player. Steven will tell the player that Soul Dew is said to be the solidified spirits of Latias and Latios, and that it can bring out their true potential. Upon walking outside, Latias{{sup/4|SS}} or Latios{{sup/4|HG}} will be waiting to battle in [[Pewter City]], drawn to the player by the Soul Dew.

Considering the fact that <sc>Latias</sc>{{sup/4|HG}}/<sc>Latios</sc>{{sup/4|SS}} is now in [[Kanto]], it is possible to assume that this has to do with Soul Dew. <sc>Latias</sc>{{sup/4|HG}}/<sc>Latios</sc>{{sup/4|SS}} is a Pokémon that travels a great distance.

:(The professor exits the building and thanks Steven.)
 
:''"No need to thank me. And I was not alone. This is Orlando. He helped me battle those thugs. Together, we sent them running."''
 
:(The professor is worried Team Aqua/Magma is trying to capture a Pokémon that can Mega Evolve.)
 
:''"I see... That is not something we can ignore. Orlando, I have a favor to ask. Please come with me. Come and help me protect that Pokémon from these thieves!''"
 
:''"I've gotten the coordinates from the professor, so I know which direction to go. As soon as you feel ready, speak with me."''
 
*When spoken to
 
:''"Looks like you're ready. Shall we go help that Pokémon?"''
 
:'''Let's have an adventure!''': ''"Understood. Then shall we go?"''

:''"Now then... I expect Team Magma and Team Aqua have beat us here in the search for that Pokémon. Orlando, can I ask you to start by having a look around? I’m sure that those fool teams will be around here somewhere. Ah yes, a word of warning: If you step into the tall grass there, wild Pokémon may attack you. Be sure you are ready for them."''
 
*If spoken to when the player's Pokémon needs healing
 
:''"Hmm... Your Pokémon look a bit tired, Orlando. Allow me to help restore them to health.
 
*If spoken to again when the player's Pokémon is healthy, or after he heals it
 
:''"Somewhere on this island is a Pokémon capable of Mega Evolution. We simply cannot hand it over to Team Magma or Team Aqua. Orlando, I want you to go farther into the island and begin the search. Once I finish my preparations, I will follow after you at once."''

:''"Orlando! I'm sorry it took me so long, Orlando. And now I see what we have here. So these are some of the bosses of Team Magma and Team Aqua? I admit I am a bit surprised to see them joining forces. It matters little. We will battle together, Orlando. Before we do, though, let me teach your <Pokémon> a little something..."''
 
:''"And this...is for you."''
 
:''"The Mega Bracelet that I just gave you is set with a mysterious stone known as a Key Stone. It is a stone with the power to bind you and your Pokémon together. Ah yes. And we should give your <Pokémon> this to hold as well."''
 
:''"With the Key Stone you hold and the Mega Stone <Pokémon> now holds... The bonds that tie you two together should now allow you to draw forth the great power of Mega Evolution! Don't you feel it's time we tested that power?"''
 
*After defeating Tabitha and Matt
 
:''"Good work, Orlando. That was a perfect Mega Evolution. It held such strength, even though this was your first time using it in battle... I'm practically trembling with excitement at the limitless potential I sense in you! What did you think of my Metagross? Its rugged white body, so cool to the touch... Its beauty grows with Mega Evolution! Yes. I think the day may come when I will be able to entrust this Metagross to you. But now we have scared off the crooks. So shall we go and meet the Pokémon said to be capable of Mega Evolution?"''
 
*Upon catching up to Steven again
 
:''"There you are, Orlando. It seems like the Mega-Evolving Pokémon is in that tall grass there. If you were to face it in battle, it might accept you as well. Here you go. Throw a Poké Ball to try and catch that Pokémon."''
 
*If spoken to again, or if the battle ended without catching the Pokémon

;Mossdeep City
 
:''"Thank you, Orlando. You will find that there are many more Pokémon in the Hoenn region capable of Mega Evolution, including the one that we recently met. And another possible form of Evolution, thought lost since incredibly ancient times, that might even exceed Mega Evolution... Yes, Primal Reversion... Team Magma and Team Aqua may be after that power..."''
 
:''"This world still holds many more mysteries and surprises than we can imagine. I wonder what you and your team will see, what you will feel, in a world like that. I wonder how you'll grow and change... No words can describe how exciting this will be! I will say good-bye to you for now, Orlando. I will be waiting eagerly for the day when I meet you and your Pokémon again!"''

:''"Hm? You are…? … Ah, I see. It's a pleasure, <player>. My apologies. My name is Steven. I'm interested in rare stones so I travel here and there. Today my journey brought me here, but what about you? Oh? A {{key|VI|letter}} for me?"''
 
:''"Why, thank you… It must have been some trouble to track me down. I suppose I must repay you in some way. Let me see… I will give you this TM. Please accept it. It contains my favorite move, Steel Wing."''
 
:''"If you don't mind me asking… Do you feel anything in particular when you look up at this wall? A primal world, lost thousands of years in the past… A Legendary Pokémon of tremendous power became humanity's greatest threat… The terror aroused by that power is clear to see in this ancient artwork. …Yes. But not all power is terrible. Your Pokémon are clearly quite capable as well. Looking at you all together I think that you have in you what it takes to become a Pokémon League Champion. As long as you keep training, that is. Good luck to you. I must be going now."''
 
 
'''Route 118'''
 
:''"Why, hello. We met in Granite Cave, didn't we? No, I remember it. It's <player>… Right? It's good to see that your journey is going well. You know, <player>… In this vast world, there are many kinds of Pokémon. They come in many types. Should you raise different types? Or will you only raise Pokémon of a certain type you like? I wonder what you think, as a Pokémon Trainer? Not that it's anything I should be concerning myself with… But somehow I find myself wanting to know what you think. I suppose I should be going. I hope to see you again though."''

:''"… I don't know what it is… Not quite unease, not quite fear… But there is something…unsettling… It is an odd feeling, as though I am walking in a dream— or an illusion. I once heard an odd fable. It was said that the two Pokémon that live on this island guard some secret about that great form of Evolution: Mega Evolution. Could it be that some dangerous element is here because of that? … Come, we should be going."''

:''"And it looks as though Latios{{sup/6|OR}}/Latias{{sup/6|AS}} may have also recognized you as a Trainer worthy of its trust. Look. It's trying to offer you its allegiance. I believe it is trying to show that it wants to go with you on your journey. Go on. Hold out your hand to it."''
 
:''"You should take [[Key Stone#Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire|this]] from me…"''
 
:''"With the Mega Bracelet that I just gave you and the Mega Stones that a Pokémon may hold, your Pokémon will be able to achieve a powerful boost, quite unlike any usual form of Evolution…but only if you are bound by great affection.

:''"Mega Evolution is a phenomenon that has long been shrouded in mystery. What is a Mega Stone? What is a Key Stone?

Let us take a moment to understand what is happening to our world right now. The rumbling that shook the earth right now... The eardrum-rupturing explosion we heard... They are proof that a seal, which was long hidden deep undersea, has been undone at last. The super-ancient Pokémon that has been sealed deep beneath Route 128 since ancient times... It slept until now in the Seafloor Cavern. The entrance to that cavern was sealed by the power of {{p|Rayquaza|a certain Pokémon}}, all in an effort to keep any human or Pokémon from ever breaching it. But now it appears that the scheming of that terrible team has undone the seal. There is no doubt that they intend to revive the super-ancient Pokémon. And once they do so, it seems they hope to make its power their own."''
 
:''"<player>... If that team obtains the power of the super-ancient Pokémon, it will upset the balance of nature in this world. A crisis unlike any other before it will befall every living thing on this planet. I plan to do everything in my power to quell this situation. That is my duty. But there is a limit to what I can do with my power alone... That is why I am asking for your help. I have great faith in your abilities. Lend me your strength to put a halt to these Teams' mad ambitions! With you and I and our Pokémon all working together, we will overcome this disastrous turn of events.

:''"In the end, you are still the strongest. Amazing. Now let us make a record of your victory!"''
 
 
'''[[Hall of Fame]]'''
 
:''"This room… This is where we maintain the records of Pokémon that prevailed through the harshest of battles. It is here that League Champions are honored."''
 
:''"Come. We will use this machine to record your name and the names of the partners who battled along with you to triumph over the Pokémon League!"''
 
 
=====[[Delta Episode]]=====
 
'''[[Petalburg City]] ([[PokéNav Plus]] call)'''
 
:''"…'Lo? Hello? …Is that you, <player>? It's me. Steven. Have you been doing well? Heh… I image you must be quite shocked. This is a communication mode that Devon is still currently developing. It comes installed on every PokéNav Plus. I thought I would only use it if I needed to contact you urgently… But it looks as thought that time has already come. I'm sorry to ask this of you, but I need you to come to the Devon Corporation in Rustboro. There's something I have to talk to you about–in person… I'll be waiting for you there."''
 
 
'''[[Rustboro City]]'''
 
:''"<player>… I'm sorry about summoning you so suddenly. It's well known how often my intuition turns out to be right. But I never imagined we would be meeting again this soon! I'm sorry to say it is not happy news that brings us together."''
 
:''"Sigh. This isn't something we should discuss in public. Let's continue this inside."''
 
:''"After you."''
 
 
'''[[Devon Corporation]]'''
 
:''"[[Mr. Stone|Dad]]… <player> is here."''
 
:''"…Dad?"''
 
:''"'''Dad!'''"''
 
 
* Before Mr. Stone's story
 
:''"My father is... Well, let me just say that I have been his son for 25 years, and sometimes even I am not sure I understand him fully."''
 
 
* During Mr. Stone's story
 
:''"So that's it… You want {{tt|him|If the player is a boy}}/{{tt|her|If the player is a girl}} to go and get that shard for you."''
 
:''"It was hardly a deduction worthy of praise…"''
 
:''"The Link Cable? So it is to be a warp system… Yes, I understand. But Granite Cave… Ah, I see. The floor where we first met–the floor with the {{color|00aeef|ancient wall paintings}}. It is true there were many shards of meteorite scattered about there."''
 
:''"It looks like it's decided then, <player>. I will head for the Space Center in Mossdeep. If I learn anything, I will contact you at once. Though it will end up as another one-sided message like the one I sent you, I'm afraid. Good luck."''
 
 
'''Granite Cave (PokéNav Plus call)'''
 
:''"…<player>. Were you able to find the {{key|VI|Meteorite Shard}} that we need? If you were able to secure it, could you hurry back to us at the Mossdeep Space Center? I'm afraid we don't seem to have much time left… …I'll be waiting for you."''
 
 
'''Mossdeep Space Center (first visit)'''
 
:''"I was rather surprised to learn that you knew [[Professor Cozmo|the professor]]. You really do seem to make connections everywhere you go. Now then, Professor… Could I ask you to explain once more about the current plan?"''
 
:''"An audacious plan… And using such technology you would… May I ask where exactly the asteroid will be warped to?"''
 
:''"Who…are [[Zinnia|you]]? You're no sightseer…"''
 
:''"Tell me, would you rather we sit here wringing our hands, waiting for the meteoroid to strike us?"''
 
:''"… Who was that woman? And the way she spoke to us… It's almost as if she came here for some sort of confirmation… And yet… I feel as though I should know her from…somewhere."''
 
:''"Ah, Professor, forgive me. I believe you were trying to tell us something before that woman interrupted us?"''
 
:''"Then should we head to Granite Cave once again?"''
 
:''"Meteor Falls! I see… Perhaps we will learn something there…"''
 
:''"I will head to Meteor Falls at once. Follow as soon as you are ready. I feel we might discover even more than a Meteorite Shard there…"''
 
 
'''Meteor Falls'''
 
:''"<player>. We have the Meteorite Shard. And I have come to understand many things, as I suspected might happen."''
 
:''"Allow me to introduce you. The honorable lady you see before you is a descendant of the ancient [[Draconid people|Draconids]]."''
 
:''"A rainbow-colored stone… An invocation from the Lorekeeper… And a {{p|Rayquaza}} unlike any ever seen… I see. It does resemble what we know of the process of Mega Evolution…"''
 
:''"So the mechanism of Mega Evolution was discovered as a result of the first meeting between humanity and Rayquaza… Hmmmm. But I have one last question. That “Lorekeeper” you spoke of…"''
 
:''"So it was true… As I had suspected, that woman who appeared at the Space Center was one of the Draconids… But I never dreamed she was involved in the attempted revival of the super-ancient Pokémon… In full knowledge of the power they held, fully understanding the terrible changes they would wreak upon our world… Still she helped that situation about? Did she give a thought to the many people and Pokémon whose lives were put at grave risk by her actions? Could she accept the inevitable sacrifice of so many lives, in order to protect the planet from the coming meteoroid?"''
 
:''"… Is that right? … I understand. Thank you for everything."''
 
:''"What is this… This vague sense of apprehension… And my intuition has often proven true. I am going back to Rustboro first. I have to get back to Devon."''
 
 
'''Mossdeep Space Center (second visit)'''
 
:''"Your timing is as impeccable as always, <player>."''
 
:''"Team Magma{{sup/6|OR}}/Team Aqua{{sup/6|AS}}… What do you intend to do with that device? You do realize that this is the last hope we have of saving this planet?"''
 
:''"How convenient it must be for you to put all the blame on another."''
 
:''"'''Wha–?!'''"''
 
:''"…<player>. [[Magma Admin Courtney|This]] [[Aqua Admin Matt|fool]]! This incredible fool really intends to do it! If we don't stop this now, our whole world will be embroiled in the destruction!"''
 
:''"You're ready for battle…aren't you?"''
 
::'''No''': ''"… Fine. I understand. You take things as seriously as ever. I suppose I should expect no less."''
 
::'''Yes''': ''"…Wonderful!"''
 
 
* After defeating Courtney{{sup/6|OR}}/Matt{{sup/6|AS}} and the Grunt
 
:''"…"''
 
:''"…<player>! Now is our chance! Take the dimensional shifter and–"''
 
:''"{{p|Whismur|That Pokémon}}… Doesn't it belong to…"''
 
:''"You're the–!"''
 
:''"…What are you trying to say?"''
 
:''"Ugh…"''
 
:''"What have…you done…"''
 
:''"Who exactly is “we”? What are your intentions?"''
 
:''"Confound it all… She must be making for Team Magma's{{sup/6|OR}}/Team Aqua's{{sup/6|AS}} hideout next…"''
 
:''"Think, Steven. Think! What to do, what to do…"''
 
 
'''[[Team Magma Hideout]]{{sup/6|OR}}/[[Team Aqua Hideout]]{{sup/6|AS}} (PokéNav Plus call)'''
 
:''"<player>! Are you all right?! … Is that right… I never even imagined… The Key Stone… The Sky Pillar… And the Draconid people… So that's it… I begin to see the line connecting these dots. I think we need to meet up at once to discuss what we should do next. I'll be waiting at the Space Center. Up on 2F. Do hurry."''
 
 
'''Mossdeep Space Center (third visit)'''
 
:''"<player>! I have been expecting you!"''
 
:''"Ah… That's it. That woman… That “Zinnia”… She mentioned the Sky Pillar. Few can enter it–only the successors of the ancient world, who know of what has been… The Lorekeepers who are tasked with passing on the knowledge to those who come after…"''
 
:''"Do you remember Wallace, whom you met in Sootopolis?"''
 
::'''Yes''': ''"Is that right? That is a relief."''
 
::'''No''': ''"Is that right? That's rather sad for Wallace…"''
 
:''"The Gym Leader of Sootopolis, Wallace, should know how to undo the seal on the Sky Pillar's entance. He is also one of the few humans to have inherited such ancient lore. I will remain here and work the professor and his team to devise a plan for what to do next. That woman…Zinnia… I cannot put my faith in her. We will think of a new way to stop the meteoroid on our own. Zinnia…and the Sky Pillar… I will leave them in your hands. I will send a message to Wallace for you, so he knows to help. You will probably find him in the {{color2|00aeef|Cave of Origin}} in {{color|00aeef|Sootopolis}}."''
 
 
* If the player has {{DL|List of American region Nintendo Network event Pokémon distributions in Generation VI|Steven's Beldum|Steven's Shiny Beldum/Metang/Metagross}} in their party
 
:''"Hm… You know, seeing that white beauty there that you travel with… I'm reminded of the Legendary Pokémon Rayquaza, said to descend at the Sky Pillar. I [[SS031|once]] had a chance to see it face to face. Although, it was a long time ago now… The [[Alain|young man]] who battled against Rayquaza beside me… I wonder whatever happened to him and that [[Mega Evolution|black]] {{p|Charizard}} of his… Well, regardless–you must go to the Sky Pillar and see what waits for you there. I don't know what you'll find. Be careful."''
 
 
'''Ever Grande City'''
 
:''"I still owe [[Wallace|you]] for your help at the Sky Pillar. Thank you for that."''
 
:''"Heh… You know, this experience really brought it home for me again… That there is still so much about this world that I do not know. I wonder what would have happened to Hoenn… If <player> had not been here to aid us with this, and the incident with the super-ancient Pokémon… I alone was powerless to stop either."''
 
:''"Hmm. Heh. Don't worry. It's not that I am so shocked by my own disappointing performance. But rather…"''
 
:''"I was just thinking how much more there is to learn about nature…about Pokémon… and about my fellow humans as well. If I am to keep living in this, huge wide world. I want to walk this world on my own two feet. To see it with my own eyes. To feel it on my very skin… I need to put into practice all of the adivce I ever gave to <player>. That's what I'm thinking now."''
 
:''"Hah hah hah! But no need to fear… I won't just disappear at once. I'll still be around to do my duty on behalf of the Pokémon League."''
 
:''"But, hmm… When the time comes for me to pursue my own hopes…"''
 
:''"Well, I hope that you, Wallace, will be behind me to lend a hand."''
 
:''"Hah hah hah… Thank you, my friend…"''
 
 
=====Post-Delta Episode=====
 
'''Mossdeep City (letter)'''
 
:''"Dear <player>… I have something in mind, so I will be away in training for some time. I do not expect to return to my home anytime soon. Which brings me to a request. I want you to take the Poké Ball that you should find on my desk. The Beldum inside is one of my favorite Pokémon, so I hope you'll treat it like one of your own. Trusting we will meet again,''
 
:::''Steven Stone"''
 
 
* A postscript in case the player has obtained {{DL|List of American region Nintendo Network event Pokémon distributions in Generation VI|Steven's Beldum|Steven's Shiny Beldum}}
 
:''"P.S. I had sent you another Beldum, rather a {{Shiny|special one}}. Did it reach you safely? Of course, both are cool and sublimely strong. I trust they will teach you the joys of Steel-type Pokémon."''
 
 
'''[[Battle Maison]]'''
 
* Before beginning the [[Multi Battle]] challenge
 
:''"I'd be honored. I anticipate that battling together with you will help me realize something new!"''
 
 
* After ending the Multi Battle challenge
 
:''"I see. So this is the end for us today? I don't believe you gave it all you have in you. The unplumbed depths of your true power are quite frightening. Still, I look forward to battling together again some day."''

====History====
[[File:Steven Stone anime XY.png|250px|thumb|Steven in the {{series|XY}}]]
+
====={{series|Advanced Generation}}=====
Steven was first mentioned by his [[Mr. Stone|father]] in ''[[AG017|Stairway to Devon]]'' who claimed he would be a good person for {{Ash}} and {{ashfr}} to know.
+
[[File:Steven Stone anime AG.png|thumb|220px|Steven in the {{series|Advanced Generation}}]]
  +
Steven was first mentioned by [[Mr. Stone|his father]] in ''[[AG017|Stairway to Devon]]'' who claimed he would be a good person for {{Ash}} and {{ashfr}} to know. In ''[[AG021|Which Wurmple's Which?]]'', [[Nurse Joy]] informed [[Max]] that Steven was in nearby [[Granite Cave]], so the group began their search for him.
   
He then appeared in person in ''[[AG022|A Hole Lotta Trouble]]''. Unlike his game counterpart, Steven was not mentioned to be or have been the [[Hoenn League]] {{pkmn|Champion}}, but was simply a powerful Trainer. Instead, [[Wallace]] is said to be the Champion later in the {{series|DP}}.
+
He then debuted in ''[[AG022|A Hole Lotta Trouble]]''. Unlike his game counterpart, Steven was not mentioned to be or have been the [[Hoenn League]] {{pkmn|Champion}}, but was simply a powerful {{pkmn|Trainer}}. Instead, [[Wallace]] was said to be the Champion later in the {{series|Diamond & Pearl}}. Steven and his {{p|Aron}} were digging in Granite Cave, looking for rare stones. As {{Ash}}, {{ashfr}}, and {{TRT}} fell down a hole, Steven ended his excavation and quickly checked out what caused the crash to occur. Steven first found Max, {{AP|Pikachu}}, and {{MTR}} wondering around the cave.
   
Steven and his {{p|Aron}} were digging in [[Granite Cave]], looking for rare stones. As Ash, his friends, and {{TRT}} fell down in a hole, Steven stopped with what he was doing and quickly checked out what caused a crash to occur. Steven found [[Max]], {{AP|Pikachu}}, and {{MTR}} in a dark part of a tunnel they were in. He questioned Max about the hole that he and the group fell in and Max confirmed they had fallen from it.
+
Having been in Granite Cave for several months, Steven escorted Max and the others to a crack in the cave floor. Soon enough they spotted Ash and the others, who were being chased by a horde of agitated Aron. He ordered them to rush over to the nearby waterfall. At the meeting spot, Steven had his own Aron use {{m|Roar}} to calm the agitated horde. He then told the horde that the group were good people and ordered the back to their roosts. After both sides were reunited with each other, Steven found out that Team Rocket were the ones who caused the Aron to get angry. Steven handled Team Rocket on his own by having his {{p|Aggron}} blast them off with a {{m|Hyper Beam}}. Afterwards, Steven found a [[Fire Stone]] with the help of Aron. He decided to lead the group out of Granite Cave and took them to a deserted inlet, an ideal place for Ash to train for his [[rematch]] with [[Brawly]]. Having found a rare stone, Steven boarded his small boat to continue his search for other stones and wished the group luck for the future.

He then told the horde that the group were good people and they turn around and leave.

======Mega Evolution Specials======
  +
[[File:Steven Stone anime XY.png|thumb|left|250px|Steven in the {{series|XY}}]]
  +
Steven reappeared in ''[[XYS02|Mega Evolution Special II]]'', where he battled [[Alain]] using his {{Shiny}} [[Mega Evolution|Mega]] {{TP|Steven|Metagross}}, but the battle was interrupted by [[Lysandre]]. Deciding to cooperate with Alain and company, Steven traveled to their destination, a small temple with two pillars in the center. When Alain and Steven held their [[Key Stone]]s to the monument, a staircase of light appeared to lead them further within the ancient ruin. There, they discovered a similar mechanism that summoned a glowing [[Giant Rock]] from underneath the ruin. After Lysandre and his research team began analyzing the giant stone, a {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Rayquaza}} appeared from the sky, Mega Evolved into Mega Rayquaza, and started wreaking havoc on the surrounding area. Alain, Steven, and their Mega Pokémon partners tried to fend off the Legendary Pokémon, but were overwhelmed.
   
As Ash and his friends were about to battle Team Rocket, Steven interrupted them and handled Team Rocket on his own. He sent out {{p|Aggron}} to take them on and then quickly defeated them with {{m|Hyper Beam}}. After their defeat, Steven found a Fire Stone with the help of Aron.
+
In this [[series]], Steven was confirmed to be the current Champion of the Hoenn League, indicating that Wallace no longer holds the title. In ''[[XYS03|Mega Evolution Special III]]'', Steven brought Alain and [[Mairin]] to the [[Devon Corporation]] headquarters to analyze the situation of the missing Giant Rock. There, they received a conference call from Lysandre, who informed them that both {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Groudon (XY)|Groudon}} and {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Kyogre (XY)|Kyogre}} have undergone [[Primal Reversion]] and were set to collide in the middle of the ocean. Steven recalled the Primal Reversion myth, and feared that the two Pokémon clashing again could have catastrophic consequences. As a result, he and Alain departed on a plane to check on the situation from the sky, with Mairin secretly stowing away with them.
   
Steven decided to lead the group out of Granite Cave and took them to a deserted inlet, an ideal place for Ash to train for his rematch with [[Brawly]]. He then boarded a small boat and wished the group luck for the future.
+
In ''[[XYS04|Mega Evolution Special IV]]'', he, Mairin, and [[Chespie]] returned to [[Kalos]]. They contacted {{an|Professor Sycamore}} regarding Alain as he separated from them. Later, they arrived at [[Lysandre Labs]] with Lysandre and his secretary waiting for them. While Lysandre's secretary escorted Mairin to watch Alain battle ten Trainers, Steven and Lysandre discussed the Giant Rock. Lysandre showed Steven the Giant Rock in another room and explained that it is kept in a high-security tank to prevent energy from leaking out, as well as bringing up the fact that the [[weather trio]] fought in [[Hoenn]] previously. Steven was then seen watching the battle between Alain and [[Malva]]. After the battle, Steven arrived to where Chespie was lying on a bed, unconscious from absorbing too much energy from an experiment.
   
At the end of the episode, Ash vowed to train harder so one day he could be powerful enough to battle Steven.
+
======Kalos======
  +
Steven reappeared in the main series in a flashback in ''[[XY075|Rivals: Today and Tomorrow!]]'', where he met [[Sawyer]]. He also appeared in another flashback in ''[[XY133|Coming Apart at the Dreams!]]''.
   
Steven reappeared in ''[[SS031|Mega Evolution Special II]]'', where he battled [[Alain]] using his {{Shiny}} [[Mega Evolution|Mega]] {{TP|Steven|Metagross}}, but the battle is interrupted by [[Lysandre]]. Deciding to cooperate with Alain and company, Steven traveled to their destination, a small temple with two pillars in the center.

From ''[[XY134|The Right Hero for the Right Job!]]'' to ''[[XY136|Forming a More Perfect Union!]]'', Steven joined the battle against [[Team Flare]]. He eventually battled alongside Ash, Alain, [[Diantha]], and all of Kalos's [[Gym Leader]]s in order to stop the [[Giant Rock]].
   
When Alain and Steven held their Key Stones to the monument, a staircase of light appeared to lead them further within the ancient ruin. There, they discovered a similar mechanism that summoned a glowing megalith from underneath the ruin. After Lysandre and his research team began analyzing the giant stone, a Rayquaza appeared from the sky, Mega Evolved into Mega Rayquaza, and started wreaking havoc on the surrounding area. Alain, Steven, and their Mega Pokémon partners tried to fend off the Legendary Pokémon, but were overwhelmed.
+
It was revealed in ''[[XY138|The First Day of the Rest of Your Life!]]'' that Steven gave Sawyer a [[Key Stone]]. Later, in ''[[XY140|Till We Compete Again!]]'', Steven and Sawyer were shown at Lysandre Labs, studying the Giant Rock that was recently held there. He proceeded to give Sawyer some information, which Sawyer promptly wrote down in his notebook.
   
Steven is officially claimed as the Hoenn Champion in the anime like he is in the games. This indicates that Wallace (who had been mentioned as the Hoenn Champion in the {{series|Diamond & Pearl}}) may have lost said title at some point before this episode.
+
====Character====
  +
[[File:Steven and Sawyer.png|thumb|250px|Steven and Sawyer]]
  +
Similar to his game counterpart, Steven is reserved and interested in collecting [[evolutionary stone|stones]]. During the {{series|Advanced Generation}}, he did care for the {{p|Aron}} in the [[Granite Cave]] and attempted to stop a herd of them from chasing {{Ash}}, {{ashfr}}, and {{TRT}}. He battled Team Rocket after discovering that they were the ones who made the Aron horde angry.
   
He is set to reappear in [[SS032]].
+
During the {{series|XY}}, he became more open to Trainers, such as [[Alain]] and [[Mairin]]. He is seen as a sort of mentor figure by Sawyer, whom Steven gave a [[Key Stone]] and [[Mega Stone#Sceptilite|Sceptilite]]. His usual calm, and a bit playful demeanor is constantly reflected throughout the series, such as during his battles against Alain and [[Mable]]; nevertheless, he can be serious when the situation demands. In a particular instance, he was not greatly disappointed or enraged after learning Lysandre's true intentions, displaying his happy-go-lucky personality.
===Pokémon===
+
  +
Being the gentle and playful person as he is, he was not worried one bit, when he and his {{TP|Steven Stone|Metagross}} were outnumbered by Mable and {{tc|Team Flare Grunt}}s during their battle, also reflecting his strong bond and great confidence in his Pokémon. He tends to appreciate others for their efforts, and has a great sense of honor for fellow [[Pokémon Champion|Champion]]s, as displayed during his interactions with [[Diantha]].

Steven briefly appeared in the [[Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Animated Trailer]]. He was the final Trainer that {{ga|Brendan}} battled.
Steven debuts in the {{chap|Ruby & Sapphire}}. He is the Champion of the Hoenn region, having taken the title from Wallace after he decided to become the Sootopolis Gym Leader despite winning the Pokémon League. Along with his father, Steven was aware of the actions of [[Team Magma]] and [[Team Aqua]] and their goal to awaken the Legendary Pokémon {{p|Groudon}} and {{p|Kyogre}}. Together, they had the [[Submarine Explorer 1]] made so that they could seal the entrance to the Seafloor Cavern so that the Pokémon could not be awakened. Steven makes his first appearance investigating Granite Cave. There, he encounters {{adv|Ruby}} being attacked by a herd of {{p|Mawile}}. Steven rescues Ruby and they manage to escape from the herd together. Afterward, Steven considers recruiting Ruby into helping him stop Team Magma and Aqua, but decides against it due to Ruby's young age. After that, he bids Ruby farewell.

When the Submarine Explorer 1 is stolen by Team Magma, Steven spends his time traveling to other regions to gather forces to help in the chaos that would be brought when Groudon and Kyogre awaken. He eventually returns with the Hoenn Elite Four, as they are the only people who he could think of that could help. Upon returning, Steven saves Wallace from [[Tabitha]], who had gone berserk after coming in contact with the Blue Orb. He tells Wallace to head to Sootopolis while he battles Tabitha alone. Before Wallace leaves, Steven relinquishes his Champion title and passes it over to him. As Steven battles Tabitha, the Elite Four work to try and awaken {{p|Registeel}}, {{p|Regirock}}, and {{p|Regice}}, as their power will be able to help contain the clash between Groudon and Kyogre. With the help of a [[blind boy]], Steven attempts to have a slab containing the secret to awakening the three Pokémn deciphered. When the boy is unable to decipher the missing pieces of the slab, Steven decides to abandon his plan and heads to Sootopolis himself after defeating Tabitha.

====History====
  +
====={{chap|Ruby & Sapphire}}=====
  +
Steven is the Champion of the Hoenn [[region]], having taken the title from Wallace after he decided to become the {{ci|Sootopolis}} [[Gym Leader]] despite winning the Pokémon League. Along with his father, [[Mr. Stone]], Steven was aware of the actions of [[Team Magma]] and [[Team Aqua]] and their goal to awaken the Legendary Pokémon {{DL|Super-ancient Pokémon (Adventures)|Groudon}} and {{DL|Super-ancient Pokémon (Adventures)|Kyogre}}. In order to prevent this from happening, Steven and his father had the [[Submarine Explorer 1]] created so that they may travel to the [[Seafloor Cavern]] and create a seal to prevent the villains from reaching the Pokémon.
   
When Steven arrives at Sootopolis, he finds it exploding in a wave of energy created by Ruby and {{adv|Sapphire}}. He finds Sapphire in the middle of the explosion and goes to rescue her. Sapphire hands hm a letter given to her from Mr. Stone that contains the missing piece of the slab. With it, the blind boy is able to figure out that they need a {{p|Wailord}} and {{p|Relicanth}} to open the caves where Registeel, Regirock, and Regice slumber. Sapphire uses her Lorry and Relly to open the caves, allowing Steven to obtain the three Legendary Pokémon. Despite this, another explosion causes Sapphire to be sent away from Steven and eventually ends up on Mirage Island. While Ruby and Sapphire train on Mirage Island, Steven, Wallace, and the Elite Four each control one of the Legendary Pokémon in three teams of two. They spend the next few weeks using the Pokémon to contain the energy generated by Groudon and Kyogre's clash so that it doesn't get released onto the Hoenn region.
+
Steven debuts in ''[[PS196|Blowing Past Nosepass II]]'', where he talks to [[Captain Stern]] about the upcoming completion of the Submarine Explorer 1. In ''[[PS194|Guile from Mawile]]'', Steven appears in [[Granite Cave]], where he finds {{adv|Ruby}} being attacked by a group of {{p|Mawile}}. Steven rescues Ruby and they manage to escape from the Mawile together. After escaping the cave, Steven considers recruiting Ruby into helping him stop Teams Magma and Aqua, but decides against it due to Ruby's young age. Afterwards, Steven says farewell to Ruby and heads off.
  +
  +
In ''[[PS250|The Beginning of the End with Kyogre & Groudon XII]]'', Steven appears to save [[Wallace]] from a rampaging Tabitha, who had gone berserk after coming in contact with the Blue Orb. He reveals that after the Submarine Explorer 1 was stolen by Team Magma, Steven traveled to other regions to look for allies to help when Groudon and Kyogre are awakened. Steven's search led him to the Hoenn Elite Four, as they were the only people who he could think of that could help. Steven has Wallace head to Sootopolis City while he says behind to defeat Tabitha. Before Wallace leaves, Steven relinquishes his Champion cloak and passes the title of Hoenn League Champion over to him.
  +
  +
As Steven battles Tabitha, the Elite Four work to try and awaken {{p|Registeel}}, {{p|Regirock}}, and {{p|Regice}}, three Legendary Pokémon capable of containing the power released by Groudon and Kyogre as they clash with each other. With the help of a [[blind boy]], Steven attempted to decipher a stone slab containing the secret to awakening the three Pokémon. Due to the slab being damaged, the boy is unable to fully translate the missing pieces, forcing Steven to abandon his plan. After Tabitha is defeated, Steven heads off to Sootopolis.
  +
  +
In ''[[PS253|A Royal Rumble with Regirock, Regice and Registeel I]]'', Steven arrives at Sootopolis, only to find the entire island surrounded in an explosion of energy. He finds {{adv|Sapphire}} in the middle of the explosion and goes to rescue her. Sapphire reveals that she was tasked with giving Steven a [[letter]] by Mr. Stone. Steven is given the letter, which contains the missing piece of the stone slab. With it, the blind boy is able to figure out that they need a {{p|Wailord}} and {{p|Relicanth}} to open the caves where Registeel, Regirock, and Regice sleep. Sapphire uses her Lorry and Relly to open the caves, allowing Steven to obtain the three Legendary Pokémon. Despite this victory, another explosion separates Sapphire from Steven, causing her and Ruby to end up on {{gdis|Mirage Island|III}}.
  +
  +
While Ruby and Sapphire train on Mirage Island, Steven, Wallace, and the Elite Four each control one of the Legendary Pokémon in three teams of two. They spend the next few weeks using the Pokémon to contain the energy generated by Groudon and Kyogre's clash so that it doesn't get released onto the Hoenn region.

After Ruby manages to stop Groudon and Kyogre and return them to their slumber, Steven collapses from the strain of controlling the three Legendary Pokémon for so long and dies soon after. With Steven's death, Registeel, Regirock, and Regice lash out at their controllers and proceed to return to the wild. Steven is later revived by Ruby's {{p|Celebi}}, who uses its time-controlling powers to reverse time on the people who died during the battle between Groudon and Kyogre. With Team Magma and Team Aqua defeated, Steven celebrated the victory with his allies and thanked Ruby and Sapphire for their assistance in the battle.

In ''[[PS417|Leaping Past Lopunny]]'', Steven is seen selling his [[Villa]] after having collected a variety of stones in the Sinnoh region. This Villa is later purchased by {{adv|Platinum}} so that she can live there while performing investigations on the island.
   
In the {{chap|Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire}}, Steven studies a set of murals portraying Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre at Granite Cave. He has a premonition that another disaster will befall the Hoenn region and enlists the help of [[Ultima]] to help him train Ruby, Sapphire, and {{adv|Emerald}} so that they may learn Mega Evolution in order to prevent the disaster.
+
====={{chap|Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire}}=====
  +
[[Professor Cozmo]] discovers that a meteoroid will crash into the Hoenn region and destroy everything. To counter this disaster, Steven enlists the help of Ruby, Sapphire, and {{adv|Emerald}}. Steven has [[Ultima]] train the three Pokédex holders' starter Pokémon in mastering the ultimate moves so that they may be prepared to use Mega Evolution. Due to Ruby having business elsewhere at the time, Steven trains Ruby's [[Mumu]] in his place. Eventually, the three Pokémon master the ultimate moves, but with Ruby still having not returned, only [[Chic]] and {{TP|Emerald|Sceptile}} are able to Mega Evolve. Despite this, Mr. Stone orders to move onto the next stage of the plan without Ruby.
  +
  +
In ''[[PAORAS05|Omega Alpha Adventure 5]]'', the group travels to [[Sea Mauville]], an abandoned energy harvesting plant owned by a rival company of Devon's. The plant contained a machine known as the [[ultimate weapon|Absorber]] that will power a dimensional shifter so that the meteoroid will be dealt with. That night, Emerald is attacked by a mischievous {{p|Hoopa}}. Steven assists Emerald in battling the Pokémon and reveals that he can use Mega Evolution as well. They battle the Pokémon together, but it escapes before they can defeat or identify its identity.
  +
  +
The next day, Steven and Mr. Stone begin to use the Absorber to drain Emerald's Sceptile and Sapphire's Chic in their Mega-Evolved states. The process hurts their Pokémon intensely, causing their Trainers to be horrified. After the process is finished, they are attacked by [[Zinnia]], a [[Draconid people|Draconid]] with a hatred for the Devon Corporation. She attacks with her small army of former Team Magma and Aqua Grunts to destroy the dimensional shifter that was powered by Sceptile and Chic's energy. Steven Mega Evolves his Metagross to assist his allies in protecting the shifter from being destroyed. After some time, Ruby returns to try and convince Zinnia to stop the battle, only to learn that Sapphire and the shifter had disappeared. With the shifter gone, Zinnia decides to turn her attention to Steven and steal his Key Stone. Ruby stops Zinnia by giving up his and Emerald's Key Stones in exchange for Steven's. Zinnia agrees to Ruby's bribe and retreats.
  +
  +
In ''[[PAORAS10|Omega Alpha Adventure 10]]'' Steven and Mr. Stone stay behind on Sea Mauville while Ruby and the others head elsewhere. Mr. Stone mourns the loss of dimensional shifter, but Steven points out that the cause of Sapphire's disappearance was due to Hoopa, meaning the shifter is still intact, but is in another location. They get a call from the Mossdeep Space Center stating that Sapphire ended up there and gave the shifter to Professor Cozmo and his assistants. Due to news about the meteoroid being leaked to the press, the Space Center is being swarmed by reporters. Steven and Mr. Stone decide to head over there to help Professor Cozmo.
  +
  +
In ''[[PAORAS12|Omega Alpha Adventure 12]]'', Steven and Mr. Stone arrive to help Professor Cozmo with the rocket that the dimensional shifter was attached to. Sapphire tells Steven that she senses Zinnia's presence and goes off to stop her from interfering with the rocket's launch. Sapphire and Zinnia's clash leads the two into battling on top of the rocket while it flies through the air. Eventually Sapphire is defeated, allowing Zinnia to destroy the shifter and knock the rocket into the ocean.
  +
  +
In ''[[PAORAS19|Omega Alpha Adventure 19]]'', Steven and his father travel to Sootopolis City, where Zinnia was taken to after her attempts to get {{DL|Super-ancient Pokémon (Adventures)|Rayquaza}} to join her ended in defeat. Mr. Stone attempts to apologize to Zinnia for the trouble he caused in attempting to control Rayquaza, but Zinnia rejects Mr. Stone's apology and claims that he is only trying to save face for his failures. Now brought to tears, Zinnia gives up and claims there is nothing they can do to stop the planet from being destroyed. This angers Emerald, who claims that they shouldn't give up and there must still be something they can do to save the planet. Together, the group comes up with a plan to gather people from Hoenn, Kanto, and Johto to assist in stopping the meteoroid, now known as [[Grand Meteor Delta]]. As the plan is being set up, Steven gives Zinnia a jar of Key Stones belonging to [[Aster]] that were collected from the Embedded Tower. When Zinnia assumes the Key Stones Steven possessed were taken from the jar, Steven reveals that he actually received his Key Stone from the [[Gurkinn|Mega Evolution guru]] in the Kalos region.
  +
  +
In ''[[PAORAS21|Omega Alpha Adventure 21]]'', the plan to destroy Grand Meteor Delta commences. While Ruby and Sapphire ride Mega Rayquaza and have it attack Grand Meteor Delta with {{m|Dragon Ascent}}, Steven and the three allied regions launch a simultaneous attack. The combined might successfully shatters the meteoroid into pieces. Later, Steven watches with everyone as they watch Rayquaza fly back down with Ruby and Sapphire. After everything had returned to normal, Ruby reveals that {{p|Diancie}} will travel with Steven to the Kalos region.

Steven Stone (Japanese: ツワブキ・ダイゴ Daigo Tsuwabuki) is a skilled Trainer who specializes in Steel-type Pokémon. He is the Champion of the Hoenn region's Pokémon League in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire, as well as the canonical Hoenn League Champion in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver.

A collector of rare stones, Steven is the son of the president of the Devon Corporation, and makes his home in Mossdeep City. In Pokémon Emerald, he is no longer the Champion—due to Wallace taking his place—and instead wanders the Hoenn region, aiding the player on their journey.

In the games

Brendan challenging Steven in Ruby and Sapphire

In Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire, Steven appears as the Champion of the Hoenn region. His strategy in battle is to use Steel-type Pokémon to find the weaknesses of his opponents, with his Metagross being the cornerstone of his team.

In Pokémon Emerald, Steven is a powerful, wandering Trainer who gave up competing seriously to spend more time looking for rare rocks and stones, which he claims he would climb waterfalls to find. Fittingly, the player can find and challenge him in the upper area of Meteor Falls after they defeat the new Champion, Wallace.

In Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, after the player enters the Hall of Fame, Steven will leave a Beldum and a note for the player at his house in Mossdeep City.

In Pokémon Platinum, the person who gives the player their villa in the Resort Area mentions that the man who gave him the villa came to Sinnoh to collect rare stones. After collecting the stones, he left the region with all the items in the villa. This mysterious previous owner may in fact be Steven.

Steven also appears in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, introducing himself as the Hoenn Champion. The player first meets him when they leave the Pokémon Fan Club in Vermilion City after collecting Copycat's Lost Item, where he will appear and inform them that there have been reports of either a LatiosSS or LatiasHG roaming Kanto. The player meets him a second time after defeating Red on Mt. Silver, where he will appear in the Silph Co. building in Saffron City and let the player choose one of three colored stones: the Green Stone, the Red Stone or the Blue Stone. Depending on which color is picked, he will give the player one of the three Hoenn starter Pokémon. He can later be found in the Pewter Museum of Science, examining a shelf. After visiting and speaking to him there, he will return to the Silph Co. building and offer to trade a Beldum for a Forretress.

If the player has the Enigma Stone and enters the Pewter Museum of Science, an event will occur in which Steven will be talking to one of the museum's researchers. When he is spoken to, he will notice the Enigma Stone and have the researcher examine it. The researcher will extract the Soul Dew from the stone and give it to the player. Steven will tell the player that Soul Dew is said to be the solidified spirits of Latias and Latios, and that it can bring out their true potential. Upon walking outside, LatiasSS or LatiosHG will be waiting to battle in Pewter City, drawn to the player by the Soul Dew.

In Pokémon Black and White, a tourist who visits Undella Town in the summer mentions Steven, explaining that he is a very powerful Pokémon Trainer who collects stones. In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, Steven appears alongside the other Champions from the first five generations as an opponent in the Champions Tournament at the Pokémon World Tournament.

History

Advanced Generation series

Steven was first mentioned by his father in Stairway to Devon who claimed he would be a good person for Ash and his friends to know. In Which Wurmple's Which?, Nurse Joy informed Max that Steven was in nearby Granite Cave, so the group began their search for him.

He then debuted in A Hole Lotta Trouble. Unlike his game counterpart, Steven was not mentioned to be or have been the Hoenn League Champion, but was simply a powerful Trainer. Instead, Wallace was said to be the Champion later in the Diamond & Pearl series. Steven and his Aron were digging in Granite Cave, looking for rare stones. As Ash, his friends, and Team Rocket fell down a hole, Steven ended his excavation and quickly checked out what caused the crash to occur. Steven first found Max, Pikachu, and Meowth wondering around the cave.

Having been in Granite Cave for several months, Steven escorted Max and the others to a crack in the cave floor. Soon enough they spotted Ash and the others, who were being chased by a horde of agitated Aron. He ordered them to rush over to the nearby waterfall. At the meeting spot, Steven had his own Aron use Roar to calm the agitated horde. He then told the horde that the group were good people and ordered the back to their roosts. After both sides were reunited with each other, Steven found out that Team Rocket were the ones who caused the Aron to get angry. Steven handled Team Rocket on his own by having his Aggron blast them off with a Hyper Beam. Afterwards, Steven found a Fire Stone with the help of Aron. He decided to lead the group out of Granite Cave and took them to a deserted inlet, an ideal place for Ash to train for his rematch with Brawly. Having found a rare stone, Steven boarded his small boat to continue his search for other stones and wished the group luck for the future.

XY series
Mega Evolution Specials
Steven in the XY series

Steven reappeared in Mega Evolution Special II, where he battled Alain using his Shiny Mega Metagross, but the battle was interrupted by Lysandre. Deciding to cooperate with Alain and company, Steven traveled to their destination, a small temple with two pillars in the center. When Alain and Steven held their Key Stones to the monument, a staircase of light appeared to lead them further within the ancient ruin. There, they discovered a similar mechanism that summoned a glowing Giant Rock from underneath the ruin. After Lysandre and his research team began analyzing the giant stone, a Rayquaza appeared from the sky, Mega Evolved into Mega Rayquaza, and started wreaking havoc on the surrounding area. Alain, Steven, and their Mega Pokémon partners tried to fend off the Legendary Pokémon, but were overwhelmed.

In this series, Steven was confirmed to be the current Champion of the Hoenn League, indicating that Wallace no longer holds the title. In Mega Evolution Special III, Steven brought Alain and Mairin to the Devon Corporation headquarters to analyze the situation of the missing Giant Rock. There, they received a conference call from Lysandre, who informed them that both Groudon and Kyogre have undergone Primal Reversion and were set to collide in the middle of the ocean. Steven recalled the Primal Reversion myth, and feared that the two Pokémon clashing again could have catastrophic consequences. As a result, he and Alain departed on a plane to check on the situation from the sky, with Mairin secretly stowing away with them.

In Mega Evolution Special IV, he, Mairin, and Chespie returned to Kalos. They contacted Professor Sycamore regarding Alain as he separated from them. Later, they arrived at Lysandre Labs with Lysandre and his secretary waiting for them. While Lysandre's secretary escorted Mairin to watch Alain battle ten Trainers, Steven and Lysandre discussed the Giant Rock. Lysandre showed Steven the Giant Rock in another room and explained that it is kept in a high-security tank to prevent energy from leaking out, as well as bringing up the fact that the weather trio fought in Hoenn previously. Steven was then seen watching the battle between Alain and Malva. After the battle, Steven arrived to where Chespie was lying on a bed, unconscious from absorbing too much energy from an experiment.

Kalos

Steven reappeared in the main series in a flashback in Rivals: Today and Tomorrow!, where he met Sawyer. He also appeared in another flashback in Coming Apart at the Dreams!.

From The Right Hero for the Right Job! to Forming a More Perfect Union!, Steven joined the battle against Team Flare. He eventually battled alongside Ash, Alain, Diantha, and all of Kalos's Gym Leaders in order to stop the Giant Rock.

It was revealed in The First Day of the Rest of Your Life! that Steven gave Sawyer a Key Stone. Later, in Till We Compete Again!, Steven and Sawyer were shown at Lysandre Labs, studying the Giant Rock that was recently held there. He proceeded to give Sawyer some information, which Sawyer promptly wrote down in his notebook.

Character

Steven and Sawyer

Similar to his game counterpart, Steven is reserved and interested in collecting stones. During the Advanced Generation series, he did care for the Aron in the Granite Cave and attempted to stop a herd of them from chasing Ash, his friends, and Team Rocket. He battled Team Rocket after discovering that they were the ones who made the Aron horde angry.

During the XY series, he became more open to Trainers, such as Alain and Mairin. He is seen as a sort of mentor figure by Sawyer, whom Steven gave a Key Stone and Sceptilite. His usual calm, and a bit playful demeanor is constantly reflected throughout the series, such as during his battles against Alain and Mable; nevertheless, he can be serious when the situation demands. In a particular instance, he was not greatly disappointed or enraged after learning Lysandre's true intentions, displaying his happy-go-lucky personality.

Being the gentle and playful person as he is, he was not worried one bit, when he and his Metagross were outnumbered by Mable and Team Flare Grunts during their battle, also reflecting his strong bond and great confidence in his Pokémon. He tends to appreciate others for their efforts, and has a great sense of honor for fellow Champions, as displayed during his interactions with Diantha.

History

Ruby & Sapphire chapter

Steven is the Champion of the Hoenn region, having taken the title from Wallace after he decided to become the Sootopolis Gym Leader despite winning the Pokémon League. Along with his father, Mr. Stone, Steven was aware of the actions of Team Magma and Team Aqua and their goal to awaken the Legendary Pokémon Groudon and Kyogre. In order to prevent this from happening, Steven and his father had the Submarine Explorer 1 created so that they may travel to the Seafloor Cavern and create a seal to prevent the villains from reaching the Pokémon.

Steven debuts in Blowing Past Nosepass II, where he talks to Captain Stern about the upcoming completion of the Submarine Explorer 1. In Guile from Mawile, Steven appears in Granite Cave, where he finds Ruby being attacked by a group of Mawile. Steven rescues Ruby and they manage to escape from the Mawile together. After escaping the cave, Steven considers recruiting Ruby into helping him stop Teams Magma and Aqua, but decides against it due to Ruby's young age. Afterwards, Steven says farewell to Ruby and heads off.

In The Beginning of the End with Kyogre & Groudon XII, Steven appears to save Wallace from a rampaging Tabitha, who had gone berserk after coming in contact with the Blue Orb. He reveals that after the Submarine Explorer 1 was stolen by Team Magma, Steven traveled to other regions to look for allies to help when Groudon and Kyogre are awakened. Steven's search led him to the Hoenn Elite Four, as they were the only people who he could think of that could help. Steven has Wallace head to Sootopolis City while he says behind to defeat Tabitha. Before Wallace leaves, Steven relinquishes his Champion cloak and passes the title of Hoenn League Champion over to him.

As Steven battles Tabitha, the Elite Four work to try and awaken Registeel, Regirock, and Regice, three Legendary Pokémon capable of containing the power released by Groudon and Kyogre as they clash with each other. With the help of a blind boy, Steven attempted to decipher a stone slab containing the secret to awakening the three Pokémon. Due to the slab being damaged, the boy is unable to fully translate the missing pieces, forcing Steven to abandon his plan. After Tabitha is defeated, Steven heads off to Sootopolis.

In A Royal Rumble with Regirock, Regice and Registeel I, Steven arrives at Sootopolis, only to find the entire island surrounded in an explosion of energy. He finds Sapphire in the middle of the explosion and goes to rescue her. Sapphire reveals that she was tasked with giving Steven a letter by Mr. Stone. Steven is given the letter, which contains the missing piece of the stone slab. With it, the blind boy is able to figure out that they need a Wailord and Relicanth to open the caves where Registeel, Regirock, and Regice sleep. Sapphire uses her Lorry and Relly to open the caves, allowing Steven to obtain the three Legendary Pokémon. Despite this victory, another explosion separates Sapphire from Steven, causing her and Ruby to end up on Mirage Island.

While Ruby and Sapphire train on Mirage Island, Steven, Wallace, and the Elite Four each control one of the Legendary Pokémon in three teams of two. They spend the next few weeks using the Pokémon to contain the energy generated by Groudon and Kyogre's clash so that it doesn't get released onto the Hoenn region.

Steven in the thirteenth chapter

After Ruby manages to stop Groudon and Kyogre and return them to their slumber, Steven collapses from the strain of controlling the three Legendary Pokémon for so long and dies soon after. With Steven's death, Registeel, Regirock, and Regice lash out at their controllers and proceed to return to the wild. Steven is later revived by Ruby's Celebi, who uses its time travel powers to reverse time on the people who died during the battle between Groudon and Kyogre. With Team Magma and Team Aqua defeated, Steven celebrated the victory with his allies and thanked Ruby and Sapphire for their assistance in the battle.

Platinum chapter

In Leaping Past Lopunny, Steven is seen selling his Villa after having collected a variety of stones in the Sinnoh region. This Villa is later purchased by Platinum so that she can live there while performing investigations on the island.

Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire chapter

Professor Cozmo discovers that a meteoroid will crash into the Hoenn region and destroy everything. To counter this disaster, Steven enlists the help of Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald. Steven has Ultima train the three Pokédex holders' starter Pokémon in mastering the ultimate moves so that they may be prepared to use Mega Evolution. Due to Ruby having business elsewhere at the time, Steven trains Ruby's Mumu in his place. Eventually, the three Pokémon master the ultimate moves, but with Ruby still having not returned, only Chic and Sceptile are able to Mega Evolve. Despite this, Mr. Stone orders to move onto the next stage of the plan without Ruby.

In Omega Alpha Adventure 5, the group travels to Sea Mauville, an abandoned energy harvesting plant owned by a rival company of Devon's. The plant contained a machine known as the Absorber that will power a dimensional shifter so that the meteoroid will be dealt with. That night, Emerald is attacked by a mischievous Hoopa. Steven assists Emerald in battling the Pokémon and reveals that he can use Mega Evolution as well. They battle the Pokémon together, but it escapes before they can defeat or identify its identity.

The next day, Steven and Mr. Stone begin to use the Absorber to drain Emerald's Sceptile and Sapphire's Chic in their Mega-Evolved states. The process hurts their Pokémon intensely, causing their Trainers to be horrified. After the process is finished, they are attacked by Zinnia, a Draconid with a hatred for the Devon Corporation. She attacks with her small army of former Team Magma and Aqua Grunts to destroy the dimensional shifter that was powered by Sceptile and Chic's energy. Steven Mega Evolves his Metagross to assist his allies in protecting the shifter from being destroyed. After some time, Ruby returns to try and convince Zinnia to stop the battle, only to learn that Sapphire and the shifter had disappeared. With the shifter gone, Zinnia decides to turn her attention to Steven and steal his Key Stone. Ruby stops Zinnia by giving up his and Emerald's Key Stones in exchange for Steven's. Zinnia agrees to Ruby's bribe and retreats.

In Omega Alpha Adventure 10 Steven and Mr. Stone stay behind on Sea Mauville while Ruby and the others head elsewhere. Mr. Stone mourns the loss of dimensional shifter, but Steven points out that the cause of Sapphire's disappearance was due to Hoopa, meaning the shifter is still intact, but is in another location. They get a call from the Mossdeep Space Center stating that Sapphire ended up there and gave the shifter to Professor Cozmo and his assistants. Due to news about the meteoroid being leaked to the press, the Space Center is being swarmed by reporters. Steven and Mr. Stone decide to head over there to help Professor Cozmo.

In Omega Alpha Adventure 12, Steven and Mr. Stone arrive to help Professor Cozmo with the rocket that the dimensional shifter was attached to. Sapphire tells Steven that she senses Zinnia's presence and goes off to stop her from interfering with the rocket's launch. Sapphire and Zinnia's clash leads the two into battling on top of the rocket while it flies through the air. Eventually Sapphire is defeated, allowing Zinnia to destroy the shifter and knock the rocket into the ocean.

In Omega Alpha Adventure 19, Steven and his father travel to Sootopolis City, where Zinnia was taken to after her attempts to get Rayquaza to join her ended in defeat. Mr. Stone attempts to apologize to Zinnia for the trouble he caused in attempting to control Rayquaza, but Zinnia rejects Mr. Stone's apology and claims that he is only trying to save face for his failures. Now brought to tears, Zinnia gives up and claims there is nothing they can do to stop the planet from being destroyed. This angers Emerald, who claims that they shouldn't give up and there must still be something they can do to save the planet. Together, the group comes up with a plan to gather people from Hoenn, Kanto, and Johto to assist in stopping the meteoroid, now known as Grand Meteor Delta. As the plan is being set up, Steven gives Zinnia a jar of Key Stones belonging to Aster that were collected from the Embedded Tower. When Zinnia assumes the Key Stones Steven possessed were taken from the jar, Steven reveals that he actually received his Key Stone from the Mega Evolution guru in the Kalos region.

In Omega Alpha Adventure 21, the plan to destroy Grand Meteor Delta commences. While Ruby and Sapphire ride Mega Rayquaza and have it attack Grand Meteor Delta with Dragon Ascent, Steven and the three allied regions launch a simultaneous attack. The combined might successfully shatters the meteoroid into pieces. Later, Steven watches with everyone as they watch Rayquaza fly back down with Ruby and Sapphire. After everything had returned to normal, Ruby reveals that Diancie will travel with Steven to the Kalos region.

Trivia

  • In Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, Steven states that his favorite Pokémon is Beldum and that his favorite move is Steel Wing. Consequently, he leaves Beldum in his house as a gift for the player, and gives the player the TM for Steel Wing in Granite Cave.
  • In Emerald, when the player speaks to Steven in Meteor Falls before their battle, he mistakenly refers to battling alongside the player in the Sootopolis Space Center. The Space Center is actually in Mossdeep City.
  • The battle with Steven against Maxie and Tabitha is the only occasion in the Generation III games where the player teams up with an ally for a Double Battle.
  • Steven's Trainer ID number is 61226 in Pokémon Emerald, 23478 in HeartGold and SoulSilver, and 11214 in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.
  • Steven shares his French name (Pierre) with Brock, the Gym Leader of Pewter City. In the French dub of A Hole Lotta Trouble, he keeps his English name of Steven Stone so as to not be confused with Brock, who was traveling with Ash when the group met Steven.
    • However, from Rivals: Today and Tomorrow! onward, he is referred to as Pierre Rochard.
    • In games where both Steven and Brock appear, Steven is referred to as "P. Rochard" (HeartGold and SoulSilver) and "Rochard" (Black 2 and White 2).
  • Despite being a Steel-type specialist, all of Steven's teams feature just as many or more Rock-type Pokémon.
  • In Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, Steven mentions to Wallace that he will relinquish his position as Champion sometime in order to travel the world, and asks Wallace if he will become Champion in his place, referencing their roles in Emerald.
  • In the rematch with Steven in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, all of his Pokémon have at least one immunity.
  • In Emerald, Brendan and May share their battle theme with Steven.
  • There were 642 episodes between Steven's first and second appearances in the anime, which makes it the longest time between a human character's first and second physical appearances in the anime.
  • If the player has Steven's Shiny Beldum, Steven makes a nod to Alain, his Mega Charizard X, and the events of Mega Evolution Special II during the Delta Episode in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.
