In Pokémon Giovanni Origins story, set approximately 20 years before the events of Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue, you take on the role of Team Rocket boss Giovanni’s childhood friend.

Growing up in Saffron City, you and Giovanni travel across Kanto and Johto as you compete for gym badges and championships. You’ll learn Giovanni’s backstory firsthand and watch from the sidelines as your friend descends a dark path and turns to a life of crime.

As you explore Kanto and Johto, you’ll see what a difference 20 years can make to a region. Everywhere you look you will find characters and clues to the future games. Enjoy exploring the Pokémon world long before the stories of legendary Pokémon trainers like Red and Blue.
