'''Arche Valley''' (Japanese: '''アルケーの谷''' ''Arche Valley'') is an {{pkmn|anime}}-exclusive location in [[Kalos]] and one of the settings of ''[[M18|Hoopa and the Clash of Ages]]''. It is {{OBP|Mary|M18}}[[Mirai]] and [[BarzaBaraz]]'s hometown. It debuted in ''[[SS034|Hoopa — The Mischief Pokémon]]''.
Inhabitants of Arche Valley have slightly different powers compared to people not from Arche Valley. They strive to become one with nature and are said to be able to communicate with {{p|Arceus}} and receive power from it. There are ivory statues placed throughout Arche Valley that resemble Arceus's ring and are treasured by the townspeople. In ''[[SS034|Hoopa — The Mischief Pokémon]]'' it was shown that Barza and Mary grew up here alongside {{an|Hoopa}}, [[Kopou]], [[Bit]], and [[Luca]].
One hundred years ago, an inhabitant of Arche Valley called [[Ghris]] managed to stop {{an|Hoopa}} [[List of Pokémon with form differences#Hoopa|Unbound]] from destroying [[Dahara City]]. He then sealed away Hoopa's evil power in the [[Prison Bottle]], causing Hoopa to transform into Hoopa Confined. Afterwards, Hoopa went to live with Ghris in Arche Valley.
In ''[[SS034|Hoopa — The Mischief Pokémon]]'' it was shown that Ghris's great-grandchildren Baraz and Mirai grew up here alongside Hoopa, [[Kopou]], [[Bit]], and [[Luca]].
