Hoenn is a region in the Pokémon: Advanced Generation.

Hoenn is based on the island of Kyūshū in Japan and lies to the south-west of Kanto and Johto in the Pokémon world. It is the only sea region so far. (A sea region is a region with a lot of routes you travel by surfing.) According to Pokémon legend, the Hoenn region was formed by the Legendary Land Pokémon Groudon raising the land and the Legendary Ocean Pokémon, Kyogre, expanding the sea. The Hoenn region contains its own Pokémon League called the Hoenn League, and its own Elite Four, unlike Johto and Kanto which share their Elite Four. Routes in Hoenn are numbered from 101 to 134 and do not follow sequentially from routes in Kanto-Johto, which were numbered 1 to 48.

The Advanced Generation series occur here, as Ash Ketchum and company explore this new region featuring more than 98 new Pokémon, Blaziken the final evolve form of Torchic and Kecleon were first seen in Johto during the Johto League and were owned by Harrison from Hoenn. A Kingdom called the "Mirage Kingdom" is located between routes 111 and 112. LaRousse City, which was the setting for the film Pokémon: Destiny Deoxys, is in eastern Hoenn. Brock, May, Max and at one point Misty travelled with Ash Ketchum.
