It is fifteen years prior to the day Red starts off on his pokemon journey. The events of Pokemon Black/White are twenty years away. It's a different world we live in.
Ten-year-old trainers are a distant dream. Strong pokemon are savage things, difficult to tame. Only the noble houses have a tradition in bending wild pokemon to their will. Lowborn pokemon trainers are rare and genius.
The noble houses vie against each other for power within their region. The regions vie against each other for power in the world. Tensions grow every day, as the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.
Romance of the Six Regions is set in the Great Pokemon War Theory (see below), where a bloody war will rip their world apart.
We begin at the outbreak of war. We end with the dissolution of the noble houses.
The Great War begins in the twin regions: Kanto and Johto. It starts serious, but small. It doesn't appear to be the war to end all wars at first glance.
Generations of loathing and warring make the noble houses poor bedmates in times of peace. After all, one doesn't train an entire clan of pokemon trainers to sit around and not go to battle. The young nobles pick fights with each other for poor reasons, and the aging lords nurse old grudges like fine wine.
In the last summer, House Blackthorn's late lord died in an accident. Some say it was natural, others say it was assassination. If it was murder, no one knows who did it.
It's autumn now, and House Blackthorn hosts a grand pokemon tournament in honor of their new lord's succession to power. It's a once in a lifetime event, not to be missed.
All nobles are invited to attend, as well as pokemon trainers of renown, to battle for honor and glory.
