Almia (Japanese: アルミア地方Almia-chihō) is the setting of Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia. The region is similar to Fiore, in that Pokémon Rangers are present instead of Trainers. Known features of the region include a school that the game centers on and water areas that can be traveled on using Surf.
Almia introduces a vast selection of different geographical elements, such as a volcanic island, a desert and a valley that is constantly covered in ice. It seems to be based on the "tailpiece" of Hokkaido, which Sinnoh region is based on, though the relation between the two is unknown. It also geographically resembles Greece and Turkey, but the relationship between them is also unknown.
Chicole Village - A village in the south of the region. The character's family resides here.
Vientown - The Ranger School is located to the east of this town. The area Ranger Base is also located here.
The Haruba Desert and nearby volcano in the eastern section of Almia may or may not be connected to Orre, as mountains and deserts are what the Orre region is primarily made of. Fans have speculated on the extent of this connection.
It could also possibly be located just south of Sinnoh, considering the shape of the region when compared to the inaccessible "tail" end of Sinnoh. This can be supported by the fact that Sinnoh is analogous to the real-world Hokkaido and if Sinnoh's geography is compared to that of the real Hokkaido, it appears to be missing a tail-like piece of land that Hokkaido has at its southwest, which Almia's geography bears a very strong resemblance to.
Interestingly, Haruba Desert has been compared to the Middle East, and Almia could possibly be Greece. This is supported by comparing Hippowdon Temple with the city of Petra in Jordan, as well as Boyleland with many volcanic islands in the Aegean Sea, mainly Crete.
