From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Forina (Japanese: ファウンス Fauns) is an anime-exclusive cavernous valley in central Hoenn. It is characterized by scrubs, pillar-like rock formations, and powerful and rare wild Pokémon like Flygon and Absol. It also contains Pokémon such as Nuzleaf, Tropius, and Breloom. The caverns beneath the valley are where the legendary Pokémon Jirachi hibernates for a millennium between the periods when it is awakened by a comet for seven days. It is only fully featured in the movie Jirachi: Wish Maker, but had a small cameo in the credits of Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, where Kidd Summers was shown talking to Butler and Diane.
According to promotional posters, it is located just southwest of Mt. Chimney and directly north of Lavaridge Town.
