The Wela Fire Festival

The Wela Fire Festival (Japanese: ヴェラの火祭り Wela Fire Festival) is an annual festival that has been celebrated by the citizens of Akala Island and Fire-type enthusiasts alike for over a century. It takes place at a shrine on Wela Volcano.

The reigning Akala island kahuna is responsible for hosting the event. The kahuna presents all of the attendants' Fire Pokémon with the legendary Wela Crown (Japanese: ヴェラの冠 Crown of Wela), an item made from cooled lava that is said to boost a Fire Pokémon's powers. The festival celebrates the power of Wela Volcano and honors it for giving Akala Island its nutrient-rich volcanic soil.

The Wela Crown

In A Crowning Moment of Truth!, during the festival, an Alolan Marowak stole the Wela Crown from Olivia's hands. Kiawe and his friends gave chase, and the following day, Kiawe used his Turtonator to defeat Marowak in battle. Marowak then handed Kiawe the Wela Crown and agreed to join his team. With the Wela Crown returned, Olivia continued the festival, and she went on to place the crown on Marowak, as well as Ash's Pikachu and Litten.

Kiawe first attended the festival with his grandfather, who was a previous Akala island kahuna, and he continues to go to the event. A year before A Crowning Moment of Truth!, Kiawe had his Turtonator crowned by Olivia.
