For those who have not completed games in the Xenoblade Chronicles series, this page contains spoilers regarding the plot. Discretion is advised.
Alcamoth, or the Imperial Capital Alcamoth (Japanese: 皇都アカモート, Kōto Akamōto, alt. Imperial City Achamoth; English dub: /ˈælkəˌmɒθ/), is the Royal Capital City of Bionis. Populated by the High Entia race, it is the biggest city in Xenoblade Chronicles. The city hovers over Eryth Sea, and can only be reached from the teleporter at Centre Gate.
Most of Alcamoth is sheltered from weather, but its clear domes allow the outside weather to be seen. The weather changes to a constant thunderstorm during the first visit to Prison Island, and returns to normal afterwards.
After the events at the Mechonis Core, it becomes impossible to Skip Travel into Alcamoth. The Centre Gate becomes the only way into the capital city. Skip traveling out of Alcamoth, however, remains possible.

The only way to enter the city after this point is to use the transporter from Centre Gate at Eryth Sea. The enemies here are large amounts of Telethia, who used to be the city's pure-blooded High Entia population.

In Future Connected, Alcamoth is revisited one year after the events of the original game. The city, relocated during the world's reconstruction to just off the Bionis' Shoulder, is in ruins and abandoned save for roaming Fogbeasts. The final boss of Future Connected, the Fog King, is encountered in the Imperial Palace villa.

It is possible that Alcamoth's name is derived from Achamoth, one of several terms from Gnosticism found in the game. Achamoth is the "Lower Sophia", the part that fell or was left behind outside of the pleroma.
