The Aether Foundation is an organization that appears in the video games Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. They are originally introduced as an organization dedicated to the preservation and protection of Pokémon, but by the time the games they appear in take place, they have become corrupt and seek to unleash the Ultra Beasts upon Alola due to the neurotoxin-induced insanity of their President Lusamine. Although the organization is mostly malevolent by the time Sun and Moon take place, there are a few members who genuinely believe in the organization's stated goal of protecting Pokémon, including the admin Wicke and several lower-ranking members. In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, they are less corrupt and are motivated by a desire to stop Necrozma rather than Lusamine's obsession with the Ultra Beasts. In these games, they eventually reform and become faithful to their original purpose, although Faba remains traitorous and sells the organization out to Team Rainbow Rocket.
