Locations Around Town
Blush Mountain is a location on Ula'ula Island in Alola, located on Route 12. The Geothermal Power Plant is located here.

A special magnetic field is present in this area, and because of it, several different Pokémon meet the requirements they need to evolve here.
Hokulani Observatory is a location on Ula'ula Island in Alola, located on the summit of Mount Hokulani. It is the location of the trial of Sophocles. Molayne, Sophocles' cousin, is the head of the observatory. Hokulani Observatory is a celestial research center that, with the help of Pokémon like Charjabug and Togedemaru, views and studies distant planets and galaxies. In addition to visible light, the observatory also studies celestial objects using all sorts of other wavelengths, like infrared and radio waves.
Mount Hokulani is the second-tallest mountain in Alola, located on Ula'ula Island. The Exeggutor Express takes passengers from the mountain's base on Route 10 to the summit, where the Hokulani Observatory is located. Due to its location and lack of air pollution, it is widely considered the best place in Alola for stargazing.
Route 10 is a route on Alola's Ula'ula Island, connecting Malie City and Mount Hokulani, which can only be reached using the Exeggutor Express bus. Route 10 is a simple, straightforward route from Malie City to the base of Mount Hokulani. It is sided by patches of tall grass and trees. These trees may occasionally rustle, probably meaning that a Flying-type Pokémon is hiding in them, and will fly out and attack anyone who gets too close. At the end of the route stands a bus stop for the Exeggutor Express bus line.
Route 11 is a route on Alola's Ula'ula Island, connecting Malie City and Route 12. It is one of the routes that connect Malie City with the nature surrounding it. This one leads to a rough mountain trail. Due to being the closest grassy trail to Mount Hokulani, it features some Pokémon that benefit from both the undergrowth and the drier, rocky conditions. Besides that, there's little remarkable about Route 11.
Route 12 is a route on Alola's Ula'ula Island, connecting Route 11, Route 13, Blush Mountain, and Ula'ula Beach. A route full of rugged boulders that present a difficult challenge to anyone who hopes to pass through it, most of this route is untraversable without the aid of a steadfast Pokémon.
Ula'ula Beach, also commonly referred to as Secluded Shore, is a location on Ula'ula Island in Alola, located south of Route 12. A beach that spreads on the southern coast of Ula'ula Island, it is a trendy and busy place for surfers and people who enjoy spending time with Water-type Pokémon in particular. It used to be considered dull, unappealing and isolated, but a recent boon to the tourism industry meant that the area was cleaned up significantly.
