PLOT
for nearly 200 years, the people of jinoa have lived comfortable, prosperous lives. for many, the worst conflict they had seen was the economic tug-of-war between rapidly expanding cities. for others, it was the occasional pack of wild pokemon encroaching on their towns. crime was dealt with swiftly and firmly, even after a boom in tourism gave rise to more delinquency. in a region of people that didn't know hardship, it was easy for citizens to scoff and say nothing would ever happen to them.

and then, something did happen.

20 years ago, team rocket came to jinoa. when people heard the rumors, they laughed. team rocket had been crushed in kanto, johto, and the sevii isles — what could they possibly do to jinoa?then the group took over a town and reduced it to ruins and the laughter turned to uncomfortable silence. it was only when they began threatening nearby cities that anything was done about them. team rocket was driven out of the ruins by a police force and seemingly disappeared from both the region and from peoples' minds. cities turned back to internal issues, leaving team rocket with freedom to gather their strength and start over again somewhere else. for the next 8 years, jinoa almost seemed peaceful again.

then the rumors started. it was harmless posts on the internet — anonymous users claimed to see team rocket near sodalite junction, others claimed to be team rocket members — and anxious gossip between parents, but even the people who brushed it off in conversation felt a little uneasy at the thought. present-day jinoa has been abuzz with suspicion and rumors but, it seems, no one is ready to say the one thing on everyone's minds, the one thing the people of jinoa are truly afraid of:

maybe team rocket never left in the first place.
