Area 28 (Japanese: エリア28 Area 28) is an anime-exclusive location in the Unova region. It exists along Route 4 and is notorious for UFO sightings.

Professor Icarus lived there after he quit his job as a professor at a university in order to work on how to manipulate dark matter. It was also where he encountered Elgyem, a Pokémon considered to be extraterrestrial.

Trivia

  • Area 28's name is a spoof of Area 51, which is often the subject of UFO speculation. Its setting is also based on the real world location.
