The '''Alola TV Station''' is an {{pkmn|anime}}-exclusive location in the [[Alola]] [[region]]. It first appeared in ''[[SM017|Crystal-Clear Sleuthing!]]''. The Alola TV Station has been the main [[television]] production and broadcasting hub in the [[Alola]] [[region]] for the past 55 years.
Alola TV employs many people, from directors, camera operators, makeup artists to actors and actresses. Event hostess {{al|Anna}} and Director [[George Charino]] are amongst them. Some of its famous televised series include '''Alolan Detective [[Laki]]''' (Japanese: '''アローラ探偵ラキ''' ''Alola Detective Laki''), Alola Pokémon Quiz, (Japanese: '''サンサン三人はアローラドリンキュン''' ''The Sparkling Trio is Alola DrinKyun'') and (Japanese: '''小さなコイキングのメロディ''' ''Melody of the Small {{tt|Koiking|Magikarp}}'').
The Alola TV facility has several film studios, rehearsal studios and is surrounded by large open spaces ideal for larger production sets.
During ''[[SM113|This Magik Moment!]]'', {{Ash}} and {{ashcl}} came to watch {{an|Sophocles}} compete in an episode of Alola Pokémon Quiz. He lost by one question to [[Kuwashi]] and was disappointed. Later, George Charino spotted {{Rotom}} and invited everyone to watch the next instalment of ''Melody of the Small {{tt|Koiking|Magikarp}}'' being filmed. The series’ main star Koi-chan was having difficulties controlling its voice and eventually [[Evolution|evolved]] into a rampaging {{p|Gyarados}}. Luckily, George, who was in the middle of preparing {{an|Lillie}} and the other girls to film an episode of ''The Sparkling Trio is Alola DrinKyun'' after the lead actresses became stranded in [[Sinnoh]] because of a blizzard, was able to settle the situation. George went on to incorporate Koi-chan into the ''The Sparkling Trio is Alola DrinKyun'' as the main villain Gyarados Devil against the heroes played by Lillie and the others.
Meanwhile {{TRT}}, who were auditioning for the upcoming 55th year anniversary of Alola TV managed to land a gig. [[Jessie]] was not thrilled about the action role she received, and her teammates were also roped into the filming of the {{wp|kaiju}} film. They later received a call back from Alola TV for more demanding roles, but the trio were hoping for speaking roles instead.
