Without the proper support from teachers he did not learn to control his powers. He became a danger to the community. His fathers disappearance in final months of the war would be the final straw. Without family to take care of him, Max saw no other options but to run away.
At the age of fourteen Max had made his way across Orre. With no real focus Max moved from place to place picking fights and catching pokemon. His first real test was a battle against Gonzap the leader of a local gang. After beating most of the Gonzap's team Max's team was taken out by Gonzap's last pokemon Metagross.

Max continued to chase Wes throughout Orre. As the Shadow Pokemon story played out in Orre, Max found himself conflicted with Team Snagems goals and left. He however stayed on the trial of Wes seeking vengeance. Once Wes had defeated the Cipher Leader he disappeared. Months had passed and Max had finally tracked down Wes outside of Lilycove City. Wes had been using his machine to steal pokemon as he traveled the globe. Max waited until Wes had left the city limits and then confronted him. The two went at each other right away. This time the battle was more even. When Max had gotten control the match and was moments away from winning, Wes acted out of desperation and sent out a dangerous Pokemon. The giant grey Metagross from Max's childhood was sent out. It came out and attacked both Wes and Max. With a massive hyper beam Wes was knocked back and its pokeball was destoryed. The bull then turned on Max and chased him through the forest, Max nearly escaped. The enraged Metagross then went after a young traveler. With Wes still down, Max was forced to make a choice to either help the traveler or get Wes. He decided to help the traveler. Max found the young woman cornered with only her water pokemon protecting her and saved her. His battle with that Metagross would be a changing point for him. After defeating the creature he captured it. The young lady he saved turned out to be a Gym Leader Named Misty. For the next couple of years the two traveled together battling all over Hoenn. When Misty got called to Kanto, Max was left wondering alone.
By the age of twenty three, Max had made his way to Indigo League. After a couple of years training, Max had won the Indigo League Championship. With the addition of the Johto, and Hoenn Championships Max was asked to take over the as the official league Champion. Max turned the offer to continue on his journey.

He was hesitant about leaving but Misty's encouragement helped him take the next step. Max was hired on for his ability to survive in any environment. While the bulk of his time was spent with the younger mage class and teaching special class about tracking, Max was given the honor to help this first group "The Kanto 9" on their journey.
When Max a small child he received a damaged pokeball. This pokeball had two pokeballs melted together. Inside the damaged double ball were two eevees, they had survived a vicious attack. The owner discarded the eevees because they were small than the rest of the litter. Max would paint a Sun and a Moon on the double ball to represent the two completely different personalities. The bigger of the two, Moon, could take just about any hit and get back up. While Moon wasn't very fast he made up for this with resilience. Sun the smaller of the two was more curious and friendly. She was super fast on her feet. The two pokemon did everything together. They even evolved at the same time in Solar Eclipse.
