A marine embayment formed within a tuff ring and on the southeast coast of O’ahu, aquatic Pokemon frequent the waters and populate every area. Though potentially dangerous, they’re quite used to swimmers and will only attacked if approached or threatened.
The island on which the long road to the Elite 4 complex sits was a feat of Pokemon and human collaboration – it is entirely made by their hands (and elemental gifts). While the Elite 4’s gym is large, modern, and sleek, the area surrounding is grassy and home to recently introduced and foreign Pokemon.
In an attempt to dissuade an ever-inflowing population of trainers from cluttering the city, lawmakers of Hawaii have decreed that no Pokemon are allowed in unless they are registered citizens. This was particularly noteworthy as this also offered equal rights to Pokemon that were, at the time, unseen anywhere else. Honolulu was monumental in this way, and the integration of local Pokemon (and their consideration as legitimate locals) is apparent in all the services provided just for them. Still, outsiders keep those filled Pokeballs to yourself.
Not technically what one might think of as a ‘ranch’, this valley is on the windward coast of the island O’ahu. Believed to be sacred, wanderers are still greatly prohibited from getting into the area. That often doesn’t stop them, which frightens many of the shy Pokemon.
