Aether Paradise (Japanese: エーテルパラダイス Aether Paradise) is a very large floating structure that serves as an artificial island located in the middle of the Alola region, near Akala Island. It was created by the Aether Foundation to serve as a base for their research.

To protect the wild Pokémon being treated in the facility, a jamming signal prevents the use of empty Poké Balls throughout the island. However, in gameplay, this only applies in the battle against Nihilego. The player can use Poké Balls in Trainer battles normally (although they will be blocked by the Trainers, as usual).

Pokémon Sun and Moon

After assisting Faba in stopping two Team Skull Grunts from harassing a Slowpoke on Memorial Hill, the branch chief invites the player to Hano Grand Resort after they finish their grand trial with Olivia. Upon arriving at the resort with Hau, Faba will take them to Aether Paradise. The player and Hau are then introduced to Wicke, who gives them a tour of the facility. At the top floor, the player meets the President, Lusamine, who welcomes the two trial-goers and professes her love of Pokémon.

The meeting is interrupted, however, by an Ultra Wormhole, which produces an unidentified Pokémon. The player is prompted to battle it, which eventually ends in it fleeing. After being thanked by the Aether Foundation's staff, Hau and the player are ferried off to Malie City on Ula'ula Island.

Later, after the player has defeated Team Skull at their base in Po Town, Lillie is revealed to have been taken away by Plumeria. Gladion later reveals that Lillie was taken to Aether Paradise, where the player, Hau, and Gladion start looking for her next. While raiding the facility, new details about Cosmog, the Ultra Beasts, and Type: Null are revealed. It also turns out that the Aether Foundation has been working together with Team Skull and sponsoring their criminal activities, forcing the player to battle their way through members of the evil team, including their Boss, Guzma.

In the big mansion at the end of Aether Paradise, the player finds Lillie, who is facing Lusamine, her mother, about Cosmog's fate. The player, Lillie, Hau, and Gladion follow Lusamine into her secret trophy room, where Lusamine reveals how she is intending to use Cosmog's power to open Ultra Wormholes all across Alola and summon multiple Ultra Beasts through them. As wormholes start opening and Ultra Beasts start emerging all over Alola, the player engages Lusamine in a battle. After Lusamine is defeated, she uses a specially designed Beast Ball to capture the Ultra Beast that emerged through the wormhole she had created inside the room, before both she and Guzma disappear into the fading wormhole themselves.

The following day, Gladion tells the player about the Legendary Pokémon of Alola, which is said to be able to travel between worlds, and gives Lillie the Moon FluteS/Sun FluteM, one of the items required to summon the Legendary Pokémon. Afterwards, the player and Lillie head to Seafolk Village on Poni Island.

Places of interest

2F: Conservation area

During the player's first visit, Lusamine is in the garden here. During the player's meeting with Lusamine, an unidentified Ultra Beast appears, which the player must battle. After the player has become the Champion, Gladion will be here to give the player a Type: Null and all of Silvally's Memory drives.

1F: Entrance

The entrance has two service counters, one of which houses a PC and a healing spot in the form of a Aether Foundation Employee. This floor also provides the player access to the outside portions of the facility, with one entrance to the front and one entrance to the back.

The back door is locked until the player defeats Faba and an Aether Foundation Employee in a Multi Battle, which can only be done after reading the notes in Secret Lab B. The player is not permitted to go out the front door until they battle Lusamine in the mansion.

B1F: Docks

The ferry stop for Aether Paradise is located on the western side. The player can take the ferry to Heahea City as soon as they can visit the ferry stop. The player can take the ferry to Hau'oli City and Malie City once they visit Ula'ula Island. The player can take the ferry to Seafolk Village once they visit Poni Island.

After completing Nanu's grand trial, but before battling Lusamine, the ferry is not present. Instead, an Aether Foundation Employee stands out the front of Gladion's Team Skull ship, which is moored on the east side, and will take the player to Malie City.

B2F: Lab area

The Lab area contains two laboratories, Secret Lab A and Secret Lab B. Secret Lab A contains secret files about the creation of Type: Null, as well as Faba's personal files, while Secret Lab B contains information about Cosmog and the Ultra Beasts. During the post-game, Wicke can be found at Secret Lab B, providing the player with information about the Ultra Beasts they've caught.

Pokémon

A Nihilego appears during the player's first visit, but cannot be captured. It has an aura that gives it +2 Defense stages and will flee on the fifth turn (if the battle has not already ended) unless it is trapped.

Aether Paradise in the anime

Aether Paradise debuted in SM044. It reappeared in SM046, where Lusamine invited Ash and his classmates to visit the facility. However, due to her being constantly busy with her work, Lillie ended up working as a guide for her classmates instead. While touring around the conservation area, the group met Professor Burnet and got into trouble with a runaway Ditto, which used its transforming capabilities to fool them until it was finally caught.

While Ash and his friends were dealing with Ditto, Team Rocket, who had been hired to work as Employees at the facility by Faba, kept trying to catch Nebby, and eventually ended up accidentally finding secret documents about Type: Null and the Ultra Beasts from Faba's personal laboratory.

It appeared in SM047 during a flashback, where Gladion saw Lillie getting attacked by a Nihilego. It appeared again in SM048, where Lusamine was seen making a video phone call to Lillie from her office. It will reappear again in SM049.
