Steven Stone is a powerful Pokémon trainer in Pokémon: Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald Versions who appears as champion of the Elite Four in the former two games and an optional post-Elite Four opponent in the latter. He specializes in Steel-type Pokémon, although his roster also contains Ground- and Rock-type Pokémon.
Steven was the son of Mr. Stone, the president of the Devon Corporation. Rather than following in his father's footsteps, Steven Stone became a Pokémon trainer who at some point challenged the Elite Four and became champion. He was also friends with Wallace, the Sootopolis City gym leader who guarded the Cave of Origin. He had strong faith in Pokémon and the good they could do, and would often muse aloud about Pokémon and trainers. Steven was also known for his love of rare stones, often travelling in search of such stones, and he would occasionally train at Meteor Falls. Despite his youth, he had his own home in Mossdeep City.
Within Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald, he was first seen within the Granite Cave at Dewford Island when Brendan/May delivered a letter to him from his father. Steven thanked the trainer by giving them TM 47: Steel Wing. He then briefly met the trainer again on Route 103 and briefly talked to him about different types of Pokémon. Steven then met Brendan/May again at Route 119, and showed him how camouflaged Kecleon were revealed using the Devon Scope. After the trainer defeated or captured a Kecleon, Steven let them keep the scope.
Steven would then be found in his home at Mossdeep, where he would give the trainer HM 08: Dive. In Emerald, before this Steven teamed up with the trainer in a double battle against Archie and Tabitha of Team Magma when they tried robbing the Mossdeep Space Center. After Groudon and/or Kyogre were awakened, Steven appeared and went with Brendan/May to Sootopolis, where he introduced them to Wallace. He remained at Sootopolis until the crisis was resolved.
In Ruby and Sapphire, Brendan/May would ultimately battle and defeat Steven Stone to become the Elite Four's new champion. Afterwards, Steven guided the trainer to be registered as the new champion. In Emerald, Steven Stone had given up his position as champion to Wallace beforehand. In either game, after Brendan/May became the new champion and returned to Mossdeep, Steven had left to go soul searching. He left behind a note and a Pokéball containing a Beldum as his gift to Brendan/May. In Emerald, he could be found training in the Meteor Falls, where he could be battled. This confirmed the suspicions Steven had since he first met the trainer that they would eventually become champion, but Steven said that only the trainer would know where they could go from there.
Steven Stone also makes an appearance in HeartGold and SoulSilver Versions (most likely taking place before Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald since he refers to himself as Hoenn League Champion). He first showed up at Vermillion City after Gold retrieves the CopyCat Girl's doll from the Pokémon Fan Club, and having shown up to investigate the rumors of Latios and Latias's appearance in Kanto, which he believed was connected to the missing Soul Dew. He also noted a strange familiarity in Gold despite never meeting him before, saying he always seemed to battle trainers like him.
After Gold defeated Red at Mt. Silver, Steven Stone would appear on the bottom floor of Silph Co. and award Gold with his choice of one of the Hoenn starter Pokémon: Treecko, Torchic or Mudkip. He also appeared at the Pewter City Museum, where he admired all of the different rocks he has never seen before. He later appeared at Silph Co. again where he would trade a Beldum holding a Dawn Stone to Gold for a Forretress, saying that he wanted one because it was not in the Hoenn region and he had never seen one before. Finally, he then remained at Pewter's museum until the player finds the Engima Stone. Steven has the Enigma Stone examined and realized that it contained a Soul Dew. He then went outside, to see that this had caused either Latias or Latios (depending on the version) to appear outside. Steven was tempted to try to catch it, but he decided to give Gold a chance. After Gold defeated or captured Latias/Latios, Steven congratulated Gold, but he then decided that he had been away from Hoenn for too long and left. Before he left, he realized that he had never learned Gold's name, but he decided not to ask because their fun "would have to wait for the right time".
Steven uses the following Pokémon in Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald:
In Emerald, during the double battle Steven uses Metang, Skarmory and Aggron.
- Steven appeared in one episode of the Pokémon anime, where he helped Ash and his friends to escape from an underground cavern, which led Ash to vow to be good enough to defeat Steven someday.
- Steven Stone appeared throughout the Ruby/Sapphire arc of the Pokémon Adventures arc. It was shown in the past that he lost to Wallace in the final round of the Pokémon League tournament, but because Steven Stone became champion through default when the title was refused by Wallace. He works with his father to find a way to prevent the revival of Groudon and Kyogre by seeking the legendary Regi-Pokémon. He is first seen in the Granite Cave where he helps Ruby in battle and is impressed by his skills but does not recruit him as a scout because he is too young. Steven later gathers together the Elite Four to gather the Regi- Pokémon after Groudon and Kyogre are revived and begin their battle. He also forces Wallace to accept the champion's cloak due to a vision that he would die soon. After arriving at Sootopolis Sapphire gives him a letter from his father given early in the arc which in this version contains the last piece of the puzzle in awakening the Regi- Pokémon. He then exerts control over Registeel, Regirock and Regice, although he winds up dying from the stress after Groudon and Kyogre are driven away. However, he comes back to life afterwards due to some sort of time slip created by Celebi. He later made a cameo appearance at the beginning of the Platinum arc, where he was seen signing over his villa (which Platina wound up taking next) and returned to Hoenn with his Metagross after getting all the stones he needed.
- His favorite move is Steel Wing, and his favorite Pokémon is Beldum.
- Steven is the first character to team up with the trainer in a double battle.
- In Pokémon: Platinum Version, it is implied that he is the previous owner of the villa, having stayed there for a while when he was collecting all of Sinnoh's rare stones and then passing the villa on to some guy before returning to Hoenn.
