The past is accessed by defeating a Mewthree clone at the end of Route 32 (Central). Celebi takes you back in order to prevent Giovanni. It should be noted that your supposed quest in the past is to win all 8 badges and save the world (presumably from Mewthree) and beat your father, although Sam hasn't build further than the present as of yet.

Several key differences are noted from the present.


There are a number of trainers in different areas. You can challenge them for money. Battle is triggered when you walk near the trainers. Repeated challenge is possible (except for the classroom trainers).
