|Debut||Jirachi: Wish Maker|
Forina (Japanese: ファウンス Fauns) is an anime-exclusive location and one of the settings for Jirachi: Wish Maker. It is characterized by scrubs and pillar-like rock formations. The area's mountainous terrain makes it difficult to access even on foot.
The caverns beneath the valley are where the Mythical Pokémon Jirachi hibernates for a millennium between the periods where it is awakened by the Millennium Comet for seven days. The power that Jirachi absorbs from the comet is said to maintain Forina's natural beauty.
Butler and Diane first visited the area and obtained Jirachi in the hope of restoring the Legendary Pokémon Groudon from a fossil. Butler somewhat succeeded, with Jirachi's power managing to unleash Meta Groudon. However, it began absorbing energy from Forina's landscape with its tentacles, consuming people and Pokémon alike. After a long battle, Jirachi used Doom Desire to destroy the Meta Groudon. As a result, Ash, his friends, Team Rocket, Diane, Butler, and Forina's Pokémon were revitalized.
While Jirachi returned to its crystalline slumber, Diane and Butler decided to stay in Forina. In the ending credits of Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, Kidd Summers visited Forina and met up with the Butler and Diane.
