Trivia

  • This is the only one of Alola's main islands which does not have a meadow. The island's nectar can instead be found at Royal Avenue. Despite the location not being in the game, a location header called "Akala Meadow" exists in the game data.
  • Out of all of Alola's islands, Akala Island has the most island challenge trials to complete, with a total of four, including Olivia's grand trial.
  • The four trials for Akala Island are of the same types as the four "phases" of the Pokémon Stadium stage in the Super Smash Bros. series - Water, Fire, Grass, and Rock.

Origin
