In the beginning of the game, the player wakes up in his/her house and goes downstairs. There, the player sees their father, his/her brother, and Professor Sycamore talking. Sycamore introduces himself and says he is in Ampardo to research newely discovered Pokemon. After requesting the player's and his/her brother's help, he gives him/her a Fennekin, a Chespin, or a Froakie. He gives the player's brother the Starter that is super effective toward the player's and sends them to Route 1. Your brother then challenges the player to a battle before heading off.
After the first Gym Leader is defeated, a mysterious man introduces himself as Yomino and challenges the player to a battle. After the battle, Yomino gives the player a Charmander, a Bulbasaur, or a Squirtle. Yomino then leaves with a kind farewell. Sycamore than arrives, surprised by the player's new Pokemon. He then gives him/her a Charizardite X/Y (player's choice), a Venusaurite Z, or a Blastoisite Z, then heads out to find Yomino.
After the third Gym Leader, Yomino is seen fighting two mysterious people. The people introduce themselves as New Team Flare Grunts and challenges the player and Yomino to a battle. The two Grunts are defeated and run off. Yomino thanks the player and tells him/her that he is grateful of his/her help. The player's brother than challenges him/her to another battle.
After the fifth Gym Leader, Sycamore, Yomino, and the player's father arrive and they all congratulate the player for making it more than halfway to the Pokemon League. Yomino then leaves after recieving news of New Team Flare stealing Pokemon from a Pokemon Center PC. When the player arrives, Yomino has not showed up. The player defeats the Grunts, and when the player leaves, he/she meets someone named AZ. After a quick battle, AZ gives the player an Eevee before walking away.
However, a massive earthquake occurs outside the city, breaking open the ground. A giant Pokemon named Zygarde crawls out of the ground, attacking the New Team Flare Grunts. Yomino, AZ, and the player go to calm the legendary Pokemon, but before they can, Zygarde is captured by a giant net attached to an airship. Before they go however, Zygarde sends a telepathic message to the player to complete his/her own dreams before challenging New Team Flare. AZ then says that Zygarde created the Mega Stones and that the player should follow the Pokemon's advice.
After defeating the seventh Gym Leader, Yomino appears on televisions and electric billboards all over the region and declares himself the New Team Flare Leader. Yomino then claims that innocent people shouldn't have to live with criminals and offers assistance towards anyone who wants entry to "a better life". After finding out where Yomino is hiding, the player and his/her brother travel to the New Team Flare Hideout and make their way though the facility. Yomino is in the center of the hideout and challenges the player to another battle. After being defeated, Yomino is arrested by the police. AZ then appears again, telling a basic summary about what Team Flare did three years ago before congratulating the player and saying that he/she reminds him of the Kalos region Champion.
After the eigth Gym Leader is defeated, the player begins a long climb up Victory Road. Professor Sycamore and the player's brother arrives. Sycamore congratulate the two before the player and his/her brother fight one last time before the player wins. The player then challenges the Elite Four.
After defeating the Elite Four, the player is about to meet the Champion when Yomino makes a surprise apperance. After a fight, Yomino reveals that he is not behind New Team Flare's ideals. A man named Xerosic appears, pronouncing himself the true New Team Flare Boss and explains he will exile criminals in the wilderness away from ordinary people. After offered an entry to "a new society", the player fights Xerosic and wins. Xerosic then reveals that the entire Pokemon League is being carried the New Team Flare airship to the New Team Flare HQ. There, the player learns Xerosic is draining the energy from Zygarde to power his machines. AZ then shows up, holding off Xerosic while the player frees Zygarde. After catching or defeating Zygarde, Xerosic defeats AZ before revealing that the one who requested him out of prison was in fact AZ, who felt Xerosic had a change in heart. He then goes to challenge the player to one last fight. The player wins and Xerosic and all the New Team Flare Grunts are taken into custody.
After challenging the Elite Four again, the Champion then reveals himself, turning out to be AZ. AZ then tells the player of his previous expierences before battling. After the player wins, AZ congratulates the player and walks them to the Hall of Fame with Professor Sycamore. After his player's Pokemon are recieved Ribbons, AZ then gives the player a Kalos Pass, where the player can travel to the Kalos region. A party is thrown in the player's hometown for becoming the new Champion, where Yomino appears once more to say goodbye, giving the player a Tepig, a Snivy, or an Oshawatt with an Embite, a Serperite, or a Samurite. The game then ends before going into the post-game.
