Debuting in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, Steven is the champion of the Hoenn region's Pokémon League, and a master of Steel-type Pokémon. Even beyond his top skills as a trainer, Steven enjoys a level of prestige and fame as the son of the Devon Corporation's CEO. Nonetheless, Steven doesn't let things go to his head too much, and has a very grounded, calm, and steadfast personality. By the time of Pokémon Emerald, Steven has relinquished his championhood to Sootopolis City's Wallace, and now follows his true passion as a wanderer in search of rare stones and minerals. His trademark is the Metagross who's almost always by his side.
