The '''Aether Foundation''' (Japanese: '''エーテル{{tt|財団|ざいだん}}''' ''Aether Foundation'') is an organization based in the [[Alola]] region whose goal is supposedly Pokemon conservation. They work to keep Pokemon safe from threats like [[Team Skull]] and operate out of their artificial island the [[Aether Paradise]]. Through the course of the story they're revealed to be the true villainous team of the Alola region under their increasingly insane leader, but are reformed after her defeat into a truly benevolent organization.

One of the professors in Aether Foundation was the one who named the Nebula Pokémon Cosmog. At some point, they also worked on genetical experiments, using several DNA samples from Pokémon of different Types, in order to create Type: Null (named Type: Full at the time) whose purpose was to battle the Ultra Beasts. After several tries, they were unable to perfect the RKS System and the Type: Full samples became more and more uncontrollable, so the project was ultimately scrapped, the samples put on cryogenic suspension and renamed "Type: Null".
