Fiore (Japanese: フィオレ地方Fiore-chihō) is the setting for the first Pokémon Ranger game. Its name is Italian for "flower". It may be somewhat close to the Sinnohregion, since it was stated in-game that Sinnoh was the closest region to send the Manaphy Egg during the Manaphy event.
Artwork of Fiore
Fiore is a location with mountainous terrain and four cities located in the cardinal directions of the map. Each city represents a season: Ringtown for spring, Fall City for fall or autumn, Summerland for summer, and Wintown for winter.

The relationship between humans and Pokémon is substantially different in Fiore than it is in the regions of the main games. In Fiore, there are no Trainers that capture and battle. The people that have the most interaction with Pokémon are the Pokémon Rangers. Since the Rangers enforce a strict rule of releasing Pokémon after using their help, Fiore does not host a form of Pokémon competition in the vein of the other regions' Pokémon League. However, they do have capture challenges that are open for Rangers to hone their skills.

Poké Balls are not sold or used in the Fiore Region. People who befriend Pokémon are encouraged to keep them by their side, outside of Poké Balls at all times, much like Ash's Pikachu in the anime.
The cities' names are based on the four seasons.
Wintown is the only city or town without a Capture Challenge nearby.
Dummied-out data exists in the Japanese and European versions of the game for a location called Kalakka Desert (Japanese: カラッカさばくKalakka Desert), including a map description: "The temperature here swings far between day and night, and an arid wind blows."
Alongside Hoenn, Fiore is the only region to have two lighthouses appearing in-game, specifically at the Fall City harbor and in the vicinities of Summerland (marine challenge).
Fiore was believed to be based off Naples and the surroundings, in Italy. However, upon closer inspection, the region seems to resemble more closely the prefectures of Okayama and Hyōgo, as well as Shodo Island in the Kagawa prefecture, Japan.
