The islands of Alola were given form when underground volcanoes erupted long, long ago. Pokémon came to live in Alola when they flew, swam or were carried on the wind to the isles.

Alola is the region (based upon Hawaii) where Pokémon Sun and Moon and Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon take place.

Among the starter Pokémon for beginners are Rowlet, the Grass-type Pokémon (which resembles an owl), Litten, the Fire-type Pokémon (which resembles a kitten), and Popplio, a Water-type Pokémon (which resembles a circus seal). It is the residence of Lana, Mallow, Sophocles, Kiawe, and Lillie.
