Alola Route 1
１番道路 Route 1
"The number-one route on the spectrum!"
This beautiful path filled with flora connects Iki Town at its north end to Hau'oli City in the south. Hau'oli Outskirts: An area located between Hau'oli City and Route 1. You can catch a whiff of salt on the southerly winds.
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.
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.
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 KantonianMeowth 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.
In Sun and Moon, after the player receives the Fishing Rod from Lana, a pair of Corsola will appear on the beach outside of Kukui's lab. Upon interacting with them, the player sees that they are injured and decides to help them. However, a Beauty—their owner—arrives before the player can do anything. She explains that the Corsola must have been attacked by wild Mareanie. She rewards the player with a Wide Lens for their kindness, before leaving with her Pokémon.
Ash stumbled upon the Pokémon School and met Kukui in Alola to New Adventure! after following a wildGrubbin 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 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.
