Three Stories to Get Involved

In the game, there will be three stories will be included in the adventure while exploring the Paldea region. The Victory Road will have Gyms set in different locations and they will have to visit them to achieve Champion Rank. The Path of Legends will have players partner up with Arven looking for rare ingredients.
