The Alola region consists of four main islands, [[Melemele Island]], [[Akala Island]], [[Ula'ula Island]], and [[Poni Island]]; andalong with one artificial island, [[Aether Paradise]], which is described as a "Very Large Floating Structure" or VLFS. It is not possible to {{m|Surf}}, or, for that matter, use the [[Poké Ride]]'s {{p|Lapras}} Paddle or {{p|Sharpedo}} Jet between the islands; those wishing to do so must take boats or the Poké Ride's {{p|Charizard}} Glide. All four islands are to an extent forested and mountainous; most of the cities and towns are on the coastlines, with notable exceptions being [[Iki Town]] and [[Paniola Town]]. Routes are relatively developed here compared to other regions, with several of them having their own [[Pokémon Center]]s in addition to residential buildings.
Melemele Island to the northwest, while steeped in nature, has the least extreme environments, and is home to Alola's largest settlement, [[Hau'oli City]]. Its routes gently slope up towards the center of the island to form a gradual mountain, on top of which are the [[Ruins of Conflict]]. It is notable for [[Ten Carat Hill]], which was formed out of an underwater volcano and has an open-air hollow in the middle, itself resembling a volcano.
