ファウンス Fauns
Region Hoenn
Debut Jirachi: Wish Maker

Forina (Japanese: ファウンス Fauns) is an anime-exclusive cavernous valley located in central Hoenn. It is characterized by scrubs and pillar-like rock formations, and it is home to wild Pokémon like Flygon and Absol, as well as Nuzleaf, Tropius, and Breloom. The caverns beneath the valley are where the Mythical Pokémon Jirachi hibernates for a millennium between the periods where it is awakened by a comet for seven days. It was first featured in Jirachi: Wish Maker, and later had a small cameo in the ending credits of Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, where Kidd Summers was shown talking to Butler and Diane.

According to promotional posters, it is located just southwest of Mt. Chimney and northwest of Lavaridge Town.
