Route 1 (Japanese: 1番道路 Route 1) is a route on Alola's Melemele Island, connecting Iki Town, Hau'oli City, Ten Carat Hill, and Route 3. It is bordered by Melemele Sea in the southeast. The southern half of the route is also known as Hau'oli Outskirts (Japanese: ハウオリシティはずれ Hauʻoli City Outskirts).

Hau'oli Outskirts is the location of the Alolan player character's house, Professor Kukui's lab, and the Trainers' School.

Route description

This route is broken up into two areas:

  • Route 1 proper (accessible from Hau'oli Outskirts)
  • Hau'oli Outskirts (where the player begins)

Route 1 proper

There are two paths in this part of Route 1, which both start in Hau'oli Outskirts and lead the player up a hill: The eastern path overlooks Kala'e Bay, and the western one starts between the player's house and the nearby Pokémon Center. These paths converge at the top of the hill, south of an entrance to Route 3. After they converge, the unified path curves towards a set of wooden stairs on this area's northern edge that allows the player to enter Iki Town.

The player first enters this area on the western path. In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, the player enters with Professor Kukui and receives their starter. (In Pokémon Sun and Moon, starter Pokémon are available in Iki Town.) Until the start of the festival in Iki Town, any wild Pokémon caught in a Poké Ball here will be unable to break out.

Until the player completes Ilima's trial in Verdant Cavern, a gate will block the entrance from Route 1 proper to Route 3. Completing that trial allows the player to access Route 3 either from here or from Route 2 near Verdant Cavern.

An isolated part of this area, which includes a different set of wild Pokémon, is blocked by rocks on its northern edge (near where the paths converge) and by a ledge on its eastern edge. Once the player has completed Hala's grand trial, this part of Route 1 becomes accessible using Tauros Charge.

Hau'oli Outskirts

This area of Route 1 is named for its proximity to Hau'oli City, which lies to the west of this area and can be accessed from the northwestern part of Hau'oli Outskirts. That part has a similar appearance to Hau'oli City: It includes a wide, paved road, gates leading to patches of tall grass, and urban buildings (such as the Trainers' School).

The player's house is located in the northeastern part of Hau'oli Outskirts. The player begins in their room in the house, which (unlike in earlier games) has only one story. The house's rooms and porch open onto the central family room and kitchen, where the player's mother and her (Kantonian) Meowth spend the majority of the game.

When the player first exits the house and triggers the conversation with Professor Kukui, the Professor brings the player up the western path to Route 1 proper and on to Iki Town. Following the festival in Iki Town, Lillie will bring the player to Professor Kukui's lab, which is on the beach in the southernmost part of this area. The entrance to Ten Carat Hill lies to the west of the Professor's lab, though it requires Tauros Charge to access. Once the player can use Lapras Paddle, they can get to the eastern Melemele Sea from this beach.

The player will receive the Rotom Pokédex from Professor Kukui in his lab. After doing so, the player can access the northwestern part of Hau'oli Outskirts, which includes the first Pokémon Center the player encounters on Melemele Island and the Trainers' School.

Professor Kukui's house in the anime

Route 1 is featured in many episodes in Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon, especially ones that focus on the events at the Pokémon School and Professor Kukui's home.

Ash stumbled upon the Pokémon School and met Kukui in Alola to New Adventure! after following a wild Grubbin into a forest and being chased by a Bewear. After touring the school grounds, Ash decided to stay at Kukui's house while he studied at the Pokémon School.

While conducting research on Nebby, Professor Burnet stayed overnight at Kukui's home in Night of a Thousand Poses!. The two Professors began bonding, and by The Professors' New Adventure!, during a walk on the beach, Kukui proposed to Burnet, who gladly accepted. A few days later, the wedding ceremony, which was arranged by his students, was held on the beach outside Kukui's house. Since their marriage, Burnet and her Munchlax moved in with Kukui and Ash.

A Wash Rotom inside a washing machine was accidentally delivered to Kukui's residence in The Dex Can't Help It!. An accident caused by Pikachu resulted in Rotom being ejected from the washing machine and getting swapped with the Rotom Pokédex. The deliveryman realized his mistake and went on to deliver the washing machine, with Ash's Rotom inside, to the Pokémon Center on the route. Eventually, the two Rotom were swapped back to their original places.

In Pushing the Fiery Envelope!, Ash and Litten were defeated by the Masked Royal and his Incineroar in an exhibition Battle Royal. The pair returned home for further training, and worked for days to help Litten master Flame Charge. During a beachside battle against the Masked Royal, Litten unleashed a powerful Flame Charge and soon evolved into Torracat. While Torracat was still defeated, the Masked Royal declared that he and Incineroar were now Torracat's rivals.

After Ash caught Poipole in Love at First Twirl!, it began living with him until it returned to its hive in Ultra Space in Securing the Future!.

In Real Life...Inquire Within!, Ash and his classmates undertook work experience at the Pokémon Center, even when the local Nurse Joy became ill. The Nurse Joy from Akala Island later appeared to assist the group's treatment of Zipp's Garbodor. At the end of the episode, the Nurse Joy from Melemele Island had recovered from her cold.

Clawmark Hill and Ten Carat Hill are located close to Kukui's home.

Professor Kukui's house in Pokémon Adventures

Pokémon Adventures

Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon chapter

In The Delivery of Rotom and the Girl, Sun transported Moon to Route 1 so that she could deliver a Rotom to Professor Kukui. At his house, Kukui told the two Trainers that he had needed Rotom in order to complete Sun's Pokédex, but due to Sun having carelessly mishandled the device, Rotom refused to enter it.

Trivia

  • In Pokémon Sun and Moon's catching tutorial, there is no message to indicate that the wild Pikipek's Peck is not very effective against Kukui's Rockruff.
  • In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, in battle, the grass field along the western path mistakenly is treated as plain terrain (rather than grass terrain) for the purposes of moves that vary with environment and Burmy. This grass field and battle background do not exist in Pokémon Sun and Moon.
  • In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, the player can befriend a Rockruff outside of Iki Town after they learn to catch Pokémon. This depends on how much they play with Rockruff and how it reacts each time, based on a system of "points": a music note reaction is worth 1 point, while a happy face reaction is worth 2 points. When the player first plays with Rockruff, only "Turn to the right" will elicit a positive reaction. After this, the player can alternate turning left and right to earn extra reactions by matching Rockruff, stare at Rockruff to get random reactions, and play peekaboo to get either reaction depending on how long they wait. The reaction shown when initially interacting with Rockruff also counts towards the player's total points. When the player accrues 20 points total, Rockruff will reach its highest state of affection. At this state, playing with Rockruff by staring at it may additionally cause Rockruff to approach the player to be pet.
