Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details.

Juliana is a girl who recently moved to the Paldea region with her mother, and now lives in the small settlement of Cabo Poco. One day, she leaves home to start studying at Naranja AcademyS/Uva AcademyV in the region's biggest city, Mesagoza. Along the way to the academy, Juliana and her neighbor, a Champion-ranked Trainer named Nemona, encounter a mysterious Pokémon named KoraidonS/MiraidonV, as well as Arven, another academy student, who gives Juliana the Pokémon's Poké Ball. At Mesagoza, Juliana saves a girl named Penny from being harassed by academy delinquents known as Team Star, receives a Tera Orb from Nemona so she can utilize the Terastal phenomenon, and is contacted by Professor SadaS/Professor TuroV, who reveals the Pokémon she's now traveling with originally belonged to them, and asks her to take care of it.

Three days after Juliana's arrival at Mesagoza, the academy's annual independent study assignment, the "Treasure Hunt", begins, urging the academy students to travel Paldea and find their own personal treasures. During the Treasure Hunt, Juliana follows Nemona's urging to challenge the eight Gyms around Paldea, helps Arven defeat the five Titan Pokémon and collect each of their respective Herba Mystica, and assists a mysterious individual calling themselves Cassiopeia to defeat the five squads of Team Star at their respective bases.

Once Juliana has achieved the Champion Rank and defeated Nemona at her full strength, helped Arven heal his injured Mabosstiff with the power of the Herba Mystica, and exposed Penny as the leader of Team Star, she, Nemona, Arven, and Penny follow the Professor's invitation to meet them at Area Zero. While traversing through Area Zero to reach the Professor's laboratory, the group of friends learns of Paradox Pokémon, which the Professor has brought to the modern day from a different era using a time machine they've invented, with Juliana's KoraidonS/MiraidonV being the first such Pokémon. At the laboratory, Juliana discovers that the real Professor is in fact dead and the "Professor" she's been communicating with is only a robot replica of them, who wishes to stop the time machine. With the assistance of her Dragon partner, Juliana is able to overcome the time machine's defenses, although the robot Professor is forced to use the time machine to travel to another era in order to stop it completely.

Following the adventure at Area Zero, Juliana takes part in the Academy Ace Tournament, organized to celebrate her new Champion status, and wins it, officially becoming the strongest Trainer in the academy.

The Teal Mask

Juliana gets randomly picked to join several other students on a class trip to the land of Kitakami in the east, organized in cooperation with Blueberry Academy in Unova. In the local Mossui Town, Juliana meets the sibling pair of Carmine and Kieran, who are natives to the town and students at Blueberry Academy. The students are divided into pairs to learn of the history of Kitakami together, with Juliana pairing up with Kieran. Taking a tour around Kitakami, Juliana learns of the tale of an ogre that was defeated by a trio of Pokémon known as the Loyal Three, which laid down their lives in order to protect the village from it.

During the annual Festival of Masks, Juliana and Carmine have an encounter with the ogre, Ogerpon, which accidentally drops its Teal Mask before running away. At Carmine's insistence, Juliana agrees to keep this encounter a secret from Kieran for now. The next day, Juliana shows the mask to Kieran and Carmine's grandfather, who reveals that the true story behind Ogerpon and the Loyal Three is that they were trying to steal Ogerpon's masks, and what the villagers had interpreted as them laying down their lives to protect the village was actually Ogerpon attacking them in rage after they had attacked its home and original companion in its absence. Carmine's grandfather insists on keeping this story a secret, as he believes no one would believe it to be true, unaware that Kieran had secretly listened to the story and is feeling betrayed.

While Juliana and Carmine retrieve a Crystal Cluster to fix the chipped mask, Kieran steals the mask and later berates the two on having lied to him about their encounter with Ogerpon. He eventually returns the mask, but this is followed by an unexpected resurrection of the Loyal Three from their grave. They take the three masks kept at the Kitakami Hall and scatter around Kitakami, forcing Juliana and Carmine to find and battle them to retrieve the masks for Ogerpon. In the meantime, Kieran manages to convince the townspeople of the true story behind Ogerpon and the Loyal Three, and they apologize to the ogre how it's been treated. Instead of returning to its home at the Dreaded Den, however, Ogerpon chooses to go with Juliana. Kieran objects to this, wanting to become Ogerpon's partner instead, but reluctantly steps aside after losing to Juliana in a battle. Juliana proceeds to catch Ogerpon, and the class trip comes to an end the next day as Briar takes her students back to Blueberry Academy with her.

The Indigo Disk

Following a recommendation by Carmine, Blueberry Academy's director, Cyrano, invites Juliana to attend his school as an exchange student. Soon after arriving, Juliana learns from Carmine that Kieran has changed following the class trip to Kitakami, now being obsessed with becoming stronger to the point he acts rudely to anyone around him if they do not perform up to his standards. From Drayton, a member of Blueberry Academy's Elite Four, Juliana learns of the BB League, the school's take on the Pokémon League concept. With Kieran currently standing at the top of the League ranking system as the BB League Champion, the atmosphere at the school's League Club is at an all-time low. As such, Drayton suggests that Juliana should take on the BB League, despite her being an exchange student. This suggestion is ultimately approved, with Juliana being allowed to skip her way through the ranks to challenging the Elite Four. After defeating each of the four members, Juliana is given the right to battle Kieran. Despite him having overhauled his team almost completely since their battles at Kitakami, Kieran ultimately suffers yet another loss to Juliana, much to his shock.

With Juliana now as the new BB League Champion, she, Carmine, Kieran, and Drayton are summoned by Briar to join her on an expedition to Area Zero to find the Legendary Pokémon Terapagos. While Drayton refuses out of laziness, the rest agree to join her. In Area Zero, the group uses the elevator at Zero Lab to travel to the Area Zero Underdepths, a cave far below the previously know deepest point of Area Zero, which is filled with Tera Pokémon possessing the mysterious nineteenth Tera Type, the Stellar type. With Juliana defeating these Pokémon in their way, the group finally reaches the deepest part of the cave, where they find Terapagos sleeping in crystal form. Upon awakening, Terapagos sees Juliana and tries to approach her, but Kieran, refusing to let another Legendary Pokémon slip through his fingers, swiftly catches Terapagos with a Master Ball. Believing that Terapagos would finally allow him to defeat Juliana, Kieran challenges her to one more battle, but is defeated once again. Briar urges Kieran to Terastallize Terapagos for it to unleash its full strength. Though this does indeed happen, it also causes Terapagos's powers to go out of control, to the point that it even breaks its own Master Ball. Working together with Carmine and later Kieran, Juliana is able to defeat Terapagos and catch it. Returning to Blueberry Academy, Juliana and Kieran reconcile.

Later, Briar publishes a book about the expedition to the Area Zero Underdepths, giving Juliana a copy as a gift. Revisiting the Crystal Pool at Kitakami with Terapagos, Juliana is surrounded by a mysterious mist, from which emerges Professor SadaS/Professor TuroV, who somehow has wound up there through time and space. Following a brief discussion, Juliana trades her copy of Briar's book for the Professor's copy of the Scarlet BookS/Violet BookV, after which the mist disappears and the Professor is whisked back to where they came from.

Mochi Mayhem

Juliana meets up with Arven, Nemona, and Penny at her house, where her mother gives her a letter from Kieran, inviting Juliana and her friends to visit him in Kitakami. The group happily accepts the invitation and travels to Mossui Town. Soon after their arrival, however, more and more people start acting oddly, performing a weird dance while repeating the word "mochi" over and over. Starting from Carmine, the odd behavior spreads out to the other villagers of Mossui Town, forcing Juliana and Kieran to investigate. They discover that the unusual activity is caused by mochi created by the Mythical Pokémon Pecharunt, which also manages to put Arven, Penny, and Nemona under its spell. Chasing the culprit to Loyalty Plaza, Kieran holds off the controlled villagers while Juliana first confronts a possessed Nenoma and then Pecharunt itself. Once Pecharunt has been defeated, Juliana then proceeds to catch it, releasing all the possessed people from its control. Several days later, Juliana and her friends return home.


Juliana adventures across Paldea with KoraidonS/MiraidonV, which she can ride on, although it won't become usable in battle until the end of the main game.
