Okay, let's rock. :thisisfineazurill:
Olivia's jewelry shop is located across from Konikoni City Pokemon Center, but the owner wasn't there when Koh visited. Instead, she gave him this letter via her :probopass::

Suddenly remembering something, the :probopass: went inside and back with a Max Potion. "For me?" Koh asked, and the Pokemon nodded. "Gee, thanks," he said before storming out from the shop. He started his training session by battling a random worker who wanted to see a Z-move. His :clamperl: was surprisingly strong to the point of breaking Snimon :fomantis:'s violin. The training continued in Memorial Hill where he battled some more trainers and caught Woodmon the male :phantump: while he's at it.
At the hill's border with Akala Outskirts, he crossed paths with Team Skull grunts again, but this time they were up against some people in white. They turned out to be people from Aether Foundation who look out for Pokemon.

Noticing the tamer, the green-haired chief (?) of the Aether people let Koh battle the baddies. Monzaemon :stufful: actually got his way in this battle. As their thanks for the help, the chief offered to take the boy to "a wondrous place". But unfortunately, his curiosity had to wait because of the upcoming grand trial.
Moving on, he caught Compass (from Compassmon) the male :nosepass: and did more training at Akala Outskirts.
The tamer then went onward only to be stopped by a Team Skull lady by the name Plumeria. Apparently she was so cross from Koh's treatment to her "brothers and sisters" (yes, that's how she calls the grunts), so she wanted her revenge. She immediately sent out her :golbat: while the tamer sent out Levi :mawile:. This :mawile: boy alternated between Charge Beam and Hidden Power (his was Ice type), eventually knocking out the :golbat:. As for her :salandit:, Tyrannomon :larvitar: one-shotted it with a single Bulldoze despite being underleveled a little bit. Now that it's done, Plumeria got even more annoyed big time, so she left. Just like that.
As soon as the tamer arrived at the Ruins of Life, Professor Burnet, Lillie, and Nebby :cosmog: caught up with him. The professor actually escorted the girl there, then left for a Masked Royal match. Lillie then healed up Koh's squad. That's so nice of her. :happyazurill:
A little bit later, while the two were having a little chat, the kahuna came from the ruins. Yes, Olivia's ready to take on the challengers, so she and Koh started the battle with Lillie and Nebby :cosmog: watching.

Round 1: :anorith: vs Gabumon :gumshoos:. Assuming that Gabumon :gumshoos: had a berry with her, :anorith: spammed Bug Bite on her. However, Gabumon :gumshoos:'s Super Fang and Rock Tomb broke its cello.
Round 2: :lileep: vs Levi :mawile:. The two kept spamming Brine (with occasional Giga Drain) and Brick Break, respectively. That is, until Levi :mawile: managed to break :lileep:'s cello with another Brick Break.
Round 3: :lycanrocmidnight: vs Pillomon :cottonee:. Koh originally thought the :lycanrocmidnight: was going to use its Z-move, so he had Pillomon :cottonee: to use Bloom Doom with Giga Drain as its base move. However, that alone wasn't enough to break :lycanrocmidnight: cello. Instead, it managed to break Pillomon :cottonee:'s violin with Rock Tomb.
Round 4: :lycanrocmidnight: vs Monzaemon :stufful:. The weakened :lycanrocmidnight: tried to bite Monzaemon :stufful:, but somehow the little critter (read: the :stufful:) managed to break its cello on Pillomon :cottonee:'s behalf.

Now that they wrapped up the rockin' battle, Olivia offered to take the kids back to the city. However, the three bumped into Hau as soon as they stepped out. As usual, he got too excited to challenge the kahuna. That, and he also got an invitation from the same green-haired Aether person from before. Again, curiosity ensued, so the tamer went ahead to Hano Grand Resort in Heahea City while Hau did his grand trial.

Akala sure is tougher than Melemele so far. Why? Looking back, seems like I broke too many violins since the fire trial up until now, and that's after lots of swaps here and there in the party. I already gave my afterthoughts about the three trials there (water in post #16, fire in post #18, grass in post #20), so the only thing left is for the grand trial.

Speaking of Akala grand trial, Olivia's fossil Pokemon weren't that hard, but somehow I made a huge mistake during the :lycanrocmidnight: battle. I should've switched to Monzaemon :stufful: after using Bloom Doom instead of keeping Pillomon :cottonee: around because, y'know, his ability (Fluffy) and type (normal-fighting) are proven to be vital for this grand trial. That aside, it should be no biggie. 😉

Time for another trip :whistleazurill:
At Hano Grand Resort, Koh decided not to meet this so-called "Chief of Aether Foundation" right away. Instead, he explored the nearby beach, Hano Beach, because he wanted to wait for Hau to finish his grand trial. The tamer boy hunted for stuffs, battled some trainers, threw some :pyukumuku: to the sea as a part-time job, and recruited Starmon the :staryu: while there.
That, and Monzaemon :stufful: evolved into :bewear: too. It somehow further reflects his Digimon namesake.

I forgot to screenshot Monzaemon :bewear:'s evolution moment, so hopefully this makes up for it. Sorry about that. :sadazurill:
ShogunGeko :poliwag: too, evolved into :poliwhirl: after another trainer battle (not the same one as Monzaemon :bewear:'s evolution, though).

After the whole hunt, Koh couldn't find the man he's been looking for outside the resort, so he went inside and finally found the man who introduced himself as Faba, the Aether Branch Chief. He then revealed this "wondrous place" from before to be Aether Paradise and offered a tour there as he had promised. Getting thrilled, Koh immediately accepted, but not without Hau (who just arrived there with Olivia and Professor Kukui) asking them to tag along. Hau then asked Kukui whether he gonna join them too, but seems like the professor himself was busy with his own stuffs. Instead, he promised to meet the boys at Malie Garden, Ula'ula Island. That being said, the three (Faba, Koh, and Hau) immediately took a ferry to Aether Paradise.

According to Faba, this place is basically a Pokemon paradise (hence the name Aether Paradise) where Aether Foundation takes care of Pokemon and protect them from threats. In order to achieve that goal, all kinds of empty Pokeballs are banned there due to the jamming signal preventing their usage. Faba then introduced the boys to his assistant, Wicke, who took them to the upper floors by a triangular elevator. She showed them to the main entrance and the conservation area.

"Wow..." both Koh and Hau were amazed upon seeing the conservation area at Aether Paradise (which is basically a garden) for the first time. It may be understandable for Koh as he was originally a tamer, but even Hau hadn't been here before. They, along with Wicke, walked around the garden and met the president of the foundation, Lusamine. She gave the boys a nice first impression as someone who loves Pokemon with all her heart. Hau commented about Lusamine's beauty and bet that their age gap wasn't that far only for the president to reveal her real age: over 40 years old. "Just how in the world does she retain her beauty at that age?" Koh only could whisper that to Coronamon as he wondered. "Kinda rivals Chief Julia, eh? Her beauty, I mean," the Digimon smirked even after hearing his tamer's comment about Julia's beauty being natural for she is still younger than Lusamine.
A little bit later, there was a tremor caused by this Ultra Wormhole:

And there was this jellyfish-like thingy :nihilego: coming out from it.

Hau stepped up to protect the ladies and Koh immediately battled it with ShogunGeko :poliwhirl:. Since the "jellyfish" :nihilego: hit the :poliwhirl: with Venoshock and a Hydro Vortex alone wasn't enough to take it down, he switched to Levi :mawile:, thus rendering another Venoshock useless. The "jellyfish" :nihilego: spammed Headbutt on the :mawile: before disappearing from everyone's sight. In other word, it fled.

Dulse suddenly appeared with Zossie and explained that the "jellyfish" :nihilego: from before is one of the Ultra Beasts hailing from another world which the Alolans know as the Ultra Space. It's then revealed that they had been working with Aether Foundation to solve the problems arising from this case as well as whatever The Blinding One is. Wicke then took Koh and Hau to Ula'ula Island where the next trials wait for them.

As soon as the boys landed at Malie City, Hau challenged Koh to another battle with starters dueling first, as usual. However, :dartrix:'s Pluck was strong enough to 2HKO Flare :torracat: this time, so the cat got switched with Myotis :crobat: the bat who managed to finish it off. Hau went with :alolanraichu: next, so it's Levi :mawile:'s turn from Koh's part. Levi :mawile: actually withstood Psychic and managed to Crunch it with his jaws. Kokuwamon :charjabug: then went out to deal with :vaporeon: by using Spark on it. For :tauros:, Monzaemon :bewear: managed to sweep it down despite the :tauros:'s Intimidate. And for :noibat:, it was surprisingly easy thanks to Levi :mawile:'s Ice-type Hidden Power.

Also, much to Koh's surprise, Hau gave him a Lycanium Z after the battle. It's not like Hau gonna add a :lycanroc:/:lycanrocmidnight:/:lycanrocdusk: to his squad anyway. Hau then rushed to Malie Garden to find Professor Kukui, but Koh had been curious about the Poke Pelago which he heard from a random man in a straw hat back in Route 7. The tamer flew to Poke Pelago and found out that the man from before is the one running it. He introduced himself as Mohn and asked the boy to help develop the islands there. Koh was also taken aback upon seeing some of his Pokemon in the PC Box chilling in one of the islands.

"This sure feels like the DigiFarm back home, eh?" Koh said while holding his Digivice with its screen facing outward, allowing Coronamon to see the Poke Pelago. Coronamon only nodded in response to his tamer's remark. Regardless, Koh helped Mohn to develop this Poke Pelago before going back to Malie City and chasing Hau to Malie Garden.

This sure is gonna be quite a shocker :thisisfineazurill:

As soon as Koh entered Malie Garden, Hau proposed to look for Professor Kukui separately because he can be anywhere in the garden. Hau started searching from the central bridge and Koh tried to track down the professor around the edges of the garden. The tamer also battled nearby trainers and recruited Aru (from Arukenimon) the female :araquanid: while there.
A little bit later, the boys found Professor Kukui sitting at the tea shop in the center of the garden. They reported to him about whatever happened back in Aether Paradise. That aside, the professor told them about where the next trial would be held: Hokulani Observatory. It's located on the summit of Mount Hokulani, so they need to take a bus to get there. Hau told them to go ahead because he's going to have "a hot date with a malasada shop", so they all parted ways there.
Back in Malie City, Lillie asked Koh to come with her to Malie Library because she wanted to read a book about old myths and legends in Alola. Despite her confidence about her sense of direction, she still ended up getting lost somehow. That's why she took a long time to get there even after Koh finishing this so-called Kantonian Gym. The two then met Hapu in front of the library. She offered Lillie a ride whenever she needs one, so the girl gladly accepted it. The two then went inside as Hapu left.

Inside, the two looked for that one book Lillie talked about. Turned out that another girl in purple had been reading it. This girl, Acerola, who referred to Lillie as "Princess" for whatever reasons, let her read it anyway. Here's the story in the book:




After reading the whole tale, Acerola revealed that the book used to be her father's and all of his books had to be moved to the library to keep them from Pokemon. She even offered to tell them more about the legends. Lillie eagerly accepted it, but Koh had to refuse due to the upcoming trial. Off he went, but not without getting Sukamon the female :trubbish: at Malie City Outer Cape, Buraimon the male :skarmory: at Route 10, and Mushroomon the male :parasect: at Route 11.
That, and evolutions also occur here:
  • Tyrannomon :larvitar: into :pupitar:, and

Again, I forgot to screenshot Tyrannomon :pupitar:'s evolution moment. Sorry about that. :sadazurill:
  • Flare :torracat: into :incineroar:

At Route 10 bus stop, the tamer met another Team Skull grunts randomly harassing a bus stop. "Maybe they haven't ever taken a bus ride before," he thought while Tyrannomon :pupitar: was cheesing them both. The baddies ran away and the professor came. The two talked a little bit as they wait for a bus to Mount Hokulani.

The bus came sooner than they thought. It then traveled all the way up to Mount Hokulani.

As soon as they arrived, Professor Kukui immediately showed Koh the highest peak in Alola: Mount Lanakila. It's going to be where the Pokemon League located.

The tamer got excited about it, but it's not time yet. For now, he had to train up and get a new recruit: Vemmon the female :elgyem:.
After the training session, he and Professor Kukui went to Hokulani Observatory. They were greeted by the professor's friend, Molayne, who runs the observatory and manage PC boxes. He gave Koh a Steelium Z and let him meet the captain, Sophocles, while the professor went off to meet Hau.
While Molayne was feeding all the :charjabug:, the tamer roamed around before meeting Sophocles. And then he went like, "Wait, what?" when a scientist randomly asked him this:

Taken aback, he guessed 2.5 only for the scientist to get a panic attack. Why? Because he mistook Koh as another scientist, so he let him have a Stardust as an apology. The tamer then went to the head's office to meet Sophocles who asked him about the :charjabug:. Remembering what Molayne did to them, he answered, "I guess it's their dinnertime?" The captain then asked Koh to gather all the :charjabug: for him while he was preparing other stuffs.

Back outside, Koh told Molayne that Sophocles needed all the :charjabug:. However, Molayne was in a pickle because some of the :charjabug: went missing, so Koh had to help looking for them. According to Molayne, all the :charjabug: have nicknames, from Onejabug :charjabug: all the way to Ninejabug :charjabug:.
Once all the :charjabug: were gathered, they were taken to Sophocles who then proceeded to unlock the trial room. The three (or thirteen including Sophocles' :togedemaru:, Togemaru, and all the :charjabug:) went inside, so...

Apparently, Sophocles used his two inventions for this trial: the Roller as the :charjabug:'s placeholder and the Pinger to lure out the Totem Pokemon. All Koh had to do is connecting the :charjabug: on the Roller to power up the Pinger by using their electricity. However, it ended up calling some wild Pokemon at the first two trials of the machines: an :elekid: in the first trial and an :electabuzz: in the second trial, which Tyrannomon :pupitar: managed to one-shot with Bulldoze. However, the electricity was too much for the machines' third trial, so Togemaru :togedemaru: (and later, Totem Togedemaru :togedemaru:) had to absorb it.

Unlike the first two battles, Koh started off with Gabumon :gumshoos: instead of Tyrannomon :pupitar:. She tried to steal :togedemaru:'s Sitrus Berry only to be gotten hit by its Spiky Shield. The totem then summoned a :skarmory: who nearly broke Gabumon :gumshoos:'s viola with their Steel-type moves (Iron Head and Steel Wing respectively). After several rounds of taking damage and getting flinched, Gabumon :gumshoos: managed to steal the totem's Sitrus Berry and immediately ate it due to the low health. She also managed to land some Super Fangs to both the totem and its ally as well as Bulldozing the totem despite being tormented by the :skarmory:. And on top of that, she ultimately soloed this totem battle big time.

After the whole mess, Sophocles gave Koh an Electrium Z and showed him the Festival Plaza's Battle Agency. And now that Koh's going back to Malie Garden to catch up with Professor Kukui, Molayne had him to return the professor's mask as well. The tamer thanked the two, got his Pokemon back to the good shape (especially Gabumon :gumshoos: who put up such a good fight), restocked his healing stuffs, and went back all the way to Malie Garden.

Whew, so this is what it feels about doing the big thing solo: tough, but manageable. I found :togedemaru:'s Spiky Shield and :skarmory:'s Torment especially annoying. Why? Because my Pokemon gets hit by the shield instead of its attack hitting the opponent and being tormented prevents my Pokemon attacks from being too spammy. That, and I kinda expected myself to send out either Flare :incineroar:, Tyrannomon :pupitar:, or Monzaemon :bewear: as backups, but seems like a normie like Gabumon :gumshoos: + a set of not-so-random moves + lots of Hyper Potions did the job. Oh, and speaking of stealing stuffs, Gabumon :gumshoos: actually broke the "tradition" of the thief becoming the victim (cue the moments where Drimogemon stole Totem Marowak's Thick Club and Falcomon stole Totem Lurantis' Power Herb). Good thing tho. :happyazurill:

"Wanna see what destruction looks like? Here it is in human form—it's your boy Guzma!" he said :naughtyazurill:
Back in Malie Garden, Koh saw Professor Kukui dealing with some Team Skull grunts in front of the bridge. He somehow advertised the Battle Royal to the grunts only to be complimented by their boss: the big bad Guzma. He referred to the professor as "fellow rejects who never could become captains" only to be denied by the latter because he technically could but chose not to. And upon noticing Koh and his Z-Power Ring, he gotten thrilled to destroy everything the professor cares about, starting from the tamer boy over there.

"O~kay, Grimmon all over again then," the tamer thought as he sent Myotis :crobat: out to deal with Guzma's :golisopod:.
Somehow Myotis :crobat: managed to withstand :golisopod:'s Razor Shell while spamming Wing Attacks, thus forcing Guzma to switch to :masquerain: due to :golisopod:'s ability: Emergency Exit. Koh immediately switched to Flare :incineroar: to avoid :masquerain:'s Icy Wind from hitting Myotis :crobat:. Retaliating :masquerain:'s Bug Buzz, Flare :incineroar: OHKO-ed it with Inferno Overdrive. The two then switched back to the first battlers: Myotis :crobat: and :golisopod:. The bat landed a final Wing Attack to the giant isopod and that's that.

Being defeated, Guzma suddenly freaked out and ran away with his fellow baddies, but not without taunting Hau who had been watching the whole battle. Professor Kukui then gave Koh something to power Flare :incineroar: up: an Incinium Z. In return, the boy returned the professor's mask to him. Lillie and Acerola caught up a little bit later. They were worried about both Koh and Professor Kukui who dealt with the baddies only to find out that their worries were pointless. Knowing that Koh had finished Sophocles' trial, Acerola told him where the next trial would be: up past Route 11, through Tapu Village. She also told him to ask a police officer if he ever got lost. That being said, the girls went shopping and Hau left as well.
After shuffling the squad, Koh went through Route 11 per Acerola's direction. He walked all the way to Route 12 only to find the rugged rocks in his way.

He also met Hapu there by chance. She registered :mudsdale: as his Ride Pokemon, thus allowing him to pass through the rugged rocks. He thanked her and immediately tried it out on the nearby rocky path. He also battled trainers there and caught a male :houndoom: which he named Devimon due to the demonic vibes of both :houndoom: and Devimon.
At Rotom Dex's suggestion, Koh sidetracked to Blush Mountain. He got ElDradimon the female :torkoal: and evolved Kokuwamon :charjabug: into :vikavolt: there.

And Wingdramon :bagon: too, evolved into :shelgon: right after a trainer battle back at Route 12.

The tamer also made another detour to Ula'ula Beach only to find this letter:

"A battle challenge, huh? Okay~" he thought upon reading it. He flew to Malie City to challenge whoever this person is, then went back to Ula'ula Beach for a little treasure hunting.
Afterwards, he went to Route 13 a.k.a. the "one last oasis before the desert sands" to catch up with Hau. The two chatted in front of the motel before Gladion butted in.

He told them about Team Skull's current agenda: looking for a Pokemon named Cosmog :cosmog:. This Pokemon may not be that strong, but its power may cause a real disaster should it be misused, so he asked them to protect it at all costs. "What do you mean? No matter what? You just gonna leave us hanging?!" Hau protested, but Gladion left the scene without saying anything about it. ":cosmog:, huh? Could it be...?" Koh mumbled as Lillie and Nebby :cosmog: showed up in his mind. The boys promised each other to keep them safe, so Hau made up his mind for what to do next: taking on the next trial and eventually finishing the island challenge despite Guzma's taunt back in Malie Garden. And Koh, he took a walk around the oasis before going to Tapu Village.
It's may be raining at Tapu Village by the time the tamer first arrived there, but that didn't stop him from training and Pokemon hunting. Yes, he actually got Youko (from Youkomon) the female :alolanvulpix: and evolved Toucan :trumbeak: into, well, :toucannon: while there.

North from Tapu Village is Mount Lanakila. Koh recruited Hyogamon the male :snorunt: at the mountain's base.
He then went back to Tapu Village Pokemon Center and stayed there for a night.

I once said that I use Digimon World Dawn and Dusk as my crossover basis, right? I know that I should've said this much sooner, but still, I'd like to say that some parts of this story may refer to some parts of said Digimon games' main story. In this case, when Koh thought that his first battle with Guzma would be "Grimmon all over again", he referred to the Grimmon battle at Limit Valley, hence this chapter's title. And for future references like this, I'll make a note about it accordingly. :winkazurill:

O~kay, gotta get ready for some spookiness :thisisfineazurill:
The next morning, Koh made his way to the Aether House located at Route 15. He and Hau (who just arrived too) were ambushed by the kids living there with the latter proclaiming that they would protect their home while Acerola's away. Battle ensued and Acerola came as soon as it's done. But she went back alone because Lillie was with Hapu at the moment. That's why, as a trial captain, Acerola decided...

As usual, Koh went ahead to take on the trial. He went out with Acerola only to find Lillie being ambushed by a Team Skull grunt. Remembering Gladion's plea back in front of Route 13 motel, Koh and Tyrannomon :pupitar: stepped up to protect her. As usual, the punk ran away right after getting cheesed by Koh's Pokemon (in this case, Tyrannomon :pupitar:). Lillie then gave him some Luxury Balls which she had bought without thinking. Acerola offered Lillie to stay in the house and took Koh to her trial site: an abandoned supermarket down Route 14.
At Route 14, Koh heard someone crying for help. He rushed to the source and found a swimmer trapped by three female Frillish :frillishf:. He then caught one of them (which he named Calmara from Calmaramon) and scared the other two away.
As a thanks, the swimmer gave Koh a Destiny Knot before going swimming again. The tamer then went back to follow the captain to the abandoned supermarket.

In this trial, the tamer had to snap a shot of the Totem Pokemon in the site with his Poke Finder. Acerola had it set up with a special shooting mode for taking photos of the ghosties. Koh still gulped despite the fact that he would do the trial in the daytime. "Okay, here goes..." the tamer muttered as he entered the supermarket.

"What the mess..." he commented once inside. "Yeah. It's abandoned, after all," Coronamon replied. Koh looked around as he walked. As expected, strange stuffs happened thanks to the ghosties' pranks. From the conveyor belt on the cashier, the shaking shopping cart, the floating plushies, and the random :pikachu: roaming around, he caught them all on film. Heck, he dubbed all these phenomena as the "midday spookiness" because, again, it's daytime. Seeing the random :pikachu: from before heading to the back room, he followed it only to find what appears to be Acerola standing there.

"Wait, what? Just when I thought that girl is waiting outside..." he thought. This "Acerola" kept telling him to leave, but he refused. He decided to take a photo as "she" freaked out. However, "she" vanished right after the snap. "Oh. Just an illusion," he gave it his flattest expression upon saying that. He then went inside the back room and found it full of :pikachu: pictures. And then...

This :pikachu:-lookalike tried its best to grab his attention. And when it did...

Turned out that :mimikyu: was the local totem there. Gabumon :gumshoos: suddenly popped out and stole its Lum Berry, busting its disguise in process. The totem then summoned a :banette: who tried to Screech at Flare :incineroar: instead of Gabumon :gumshoos: and failed. Flare :incineroar: then used his special Z-move, Malicious Moonsault, to the totem who Played Rough to him and nearly broke his violin. :banette: then cursed Flare :incineroar: even after the latter evading :mimikyu:'s Play Rough and gotten healed by Roto HP Restore, so he had to switch with Myotis :crobat: who took the Play Rough and Feint Attack head-on. Despite the burn caused by the ally's Will-O-Wisp, Rotom let Myotis :crobat: use a second Z-move, Corkscrew Crash, to break the totem's cello before succumbing to the burn. And wanting some revenge, Flare :incineroar: unleashed his Darkest Lariat to break :banette:'s cello.

Now that :mimikyu:'s gone, Koh rushed out to show the totem's photo to (the real) Acerola. In return, she gave him a Ghostium Z and some Dusk Balls for passing her trial. And now that he's allowed to catch something in such a spooky supermarket, he went back in and caught Phantomon the male :haunter: using the balls Acerola gave him.
He then ran back to Tapu Village Pokemon Center and calmed himself down before contacting Sayo to make a trade.
"Hello?" the Night Claw girl picked up the phone. "Oh, Sayo, I think I need a help here," Koh said. He then told her that he wanted to trade-evolve some of his Pokemon. "Oho~ perfect timing, Koh. I've been thinking of doing that too," Sayo gotten overjoyed. "Great. So what do you have there?" the Light Fang boy asked. "Let's see... I have Menuhin the :haunter:, Rentaro the :phantump:, and Akiko the :alolangraveler:. How about you?" now it's Sayo's turn to ask. "Woodmon the :phantump:, Renamon the :kadabra:, and Phantomon the :haunter:," Koh answered. The two proceeded to trade-evolve their Pokemon with Coronamon's and Lunamon's help, then returned them back after evolving. It went smoothly, but not without a little twist: Sayo had Woodmon :trevenant: to hold a King's Rock before returning him to Koh. "Uh, Sayo, what do you mean by this?" Koh asked as soon as he realized it. "Eheheh, I somehow got ahold of that King's Rock, but it's not like I'm going to use it, so..." she shyly confessed. Anyway, happy with the results, the two thanked each other before disconnecting. And here are what the Light Fang tamer got after the trade:



Okay, it's not like I forgot to screenshot the evolution moments (again). I just can't do so while being connected. Sorry again, people. :pensiveazurill:

Oh, :pikachu: lookalike. Its Play Rough and Shadow Claw actually hit quite hard, especially for the violists (Myotis :crobat: and Gabumon :gumshoos:). :banette:'s Curse and Will-O-Wisp were also annoying because, well, two reasons:
  1. I'd say that my team is mostly physical attackers. No wonder they're prone to the burn's Attack drop.
  2. Can anyone tell me how to cure a curse? :nanihmmazurill: (no, I'm not kidding, really)
Also, come to think of it, I ended up using some of my past MVPs for this one: Flare :incineroar: in the normal trial, Myotis :crobat: in the water trial, and Gabumon :gumshoos: in the electric trial. But unfortunately, Myotis :crobat:'s death broke the broken violin record: five in a row. :ohnoazurill:

Dealing with ghosts? Done. Trade-evolving? Done. Koh kinda felt like treading through Haina Desert despite the harsh sunlight there. I mean, his pride as a Light Fang tamer would be on the line if he couldn't brave even the hottest day, right? :winkazurill:
He went back to Route 13, then north to Haina Desert. Taking lots of turns, getting lost quite often, hunting for stuffs (including a Psychium Z of all things), and getting ambushed by Pokemon, yet he refused to give up. He used to deal with those too back in Digital world, except with Digimon instead of Pokemon. And speaking of Pokemon, he managed to catch a female :krokorok: which he named Decker from Deckerdramon.
He kept going and kept going, eventually reaching the Ruins of Abundance.

Nothing could be done here at this point, so he decided to fly back to Tapu Village and went back to Aether House only to find Plumeria and some grunts around.

Hau and Acerola fought the grunts while Koh dealt with Plumeria herself. Tyrannomon :pupitar: easily dealt with her :golbat: and managed to hold his own against her :salazzle:, though he had to admit that the latter's Dragon Pulse was a real pain in the neck. Only then Koh learned that they kidnapped the kids' :yungoos: and he had to come to their base in Po Town with no backup if he wanted to rescue it. Hau lamented that it's no fair, but Koh decided to do it anyway. At Acerola's suggestion, he met this kimono-clad guy, Grimsley, at Route 15 who gave him a :sharpedo: ride. It's basically a mix of :lapras: and :tauros: rides for it being able to crush the rocks in the water bodies.

Koh tried to do some rock-smashing with :sharpedo: only to be ambushed by a female :tentacruel:. He then caught her and named her Dragomon despite the fact that :tentacruel: doesn't really look like it.
He surfed all the way through Route 15 and arrived at Route 16 where another Pokemon Center lies. However, another Team Skull grunt made it a venue for his own drama which was spectacularly ruined by Renamon :alakazam:. Koh only could chuckle at this scene. 😏
After a much needed break, he roamed around Route 16 where he recruited Shellmon the female :slowpoke:. But unfortunately, a scientist's :alolanmuk: there broke Tyrannomon :pupitar:'s cello.
Koh then went to Ula'ula Meadow where he met Faba on his field work. He warned the boy about Team Skull which he's been aware all this time.

As soon as Faba left, Koh went to Lake of the Moone to grab a TM Psyshock laying there. He then flew to Poke Pelago only to find some wild Pokemon chilling at Isle Abeens: a male :natu: who had been there from the other day and two :cutiefly: who was there recently.

That, and Coronamon also revealed that Sayo sent him a note via her Lunamon back when the tamers trade-evolved their Pokemon.
Dear Koh,

Does your Alola have this place called Poke Pelago? If so, you should've noticed that some wild Pokemon may come and either go or stay there. What would you do in case they wanna stay there? If it were me, I'd like to treat them as my "encounter" for wherever I come from. I can't refuse those who wanna stay by my side, y'see.

Love, Sayo
Upon reading the message, the Light Fang tamer decided to keep the :natu: as his Lake of the Moone encounter whom he named Mucho as a tribute to Muchomon.
He then went back to Ula'ula Meadow where he recruited Tento (from Tentomon) the male :ledian: and Rosemon :steenee: evolved into :tsareena:. But unfortunately, ShogunGeko :poliwhirl: broke his violin while fighting Actor Meredith's :oricorio:.

Later that night, Koh moved on to Route 17 where it rains all the time. Po Town is not far from there. Despite all the Skull grunts scattering around, he managed to get Tsukai (from Tsukaimon) the male :alolanraticate: somehow.
Since Po Town gate was being guarded by a pair of Skull grunts, he naturally had to deal with them somehow. The two sent out a :pawniard: and a :scraggy: only to be dealt by Decker :krokorok: and Monzaemon :bewear:. The baddies then locked the gate from inside Po Town. Or so they thought, because the lock was undone by this policeman:

Anticipating whatever mess might be lying ahead, the tamer entered Po Town. Not without thanking the policeman, though.

Here's another episode of Big Bad Guzma. Enjoy. :happyazurill:

Po Town, also known as Team Skull's den of mischief. As one can expect, it's a total mess with the baddies around. Even its Pokemon Center couldn't avoid their vandalism. Yet, Koh gotta brave it just like how he braved (spoiler ahead for those who haven't played Digimon World Dusk) Access Glacier to help Sayo with the Night Claw's rescue from Grimmon. As the first step, he had to find a way to bypass the barriers set up there. He actually managed somehow, eventually reaching the Shady House.

As expected from Team Skull's HQ, the Shady House was also full of them grunts. "These guys' boss gotta be here somewhere," the tamer thought as he's looking around. That being said, duels with the grunts are pretty much unavoidable at this point. He also got to read some random notes lying around. Here are what he found:


And oh, there was an Ice Stone lying there near the swimming pool. Koh immediately used it to evolve Youko :alolanvulpix: into :alolanninetales:.

There's also this part where whoever wants to meet Guzma have to give the three secret passwords. Somehow the tamer found the random notes quite handy here. The passwords are basically what Plumeria likes best, and he firmly answered "Heck, no!" when the grunt confirmed them. Long story short, he got to deal with the boss.

Again, the battle is unavoidable at this point. Guzma and Koh sent out :golisopod: and Kokuwamon :vikavolt: respectively. :golisopod: gave Kokuwamon :vikavolt: a strong First Impression only for him to OHKO the giant isopod with a single Thunderbolt. The two then sent out :masquerain: and Youko :alolanninetales: for the next round. :masquerain: managed to flinch Youko :alolanninetales:, so she had to let Flare :incineroar: to take over. Thanks to :masquerain:'s Air Slash and Bug Buzz, Flare :incineroar:'s Blaze activated via his Fire Fang, OHKO-ing :masquerain: in process. :pinsir: and Monzaemon :bewear: next, with the two exchanging Storm Throw and Aerial Ace respectively. Koh had to resort to Hyper Potion spamming to drain :pinsir:'s Storm Throw because even Monzaemon :bewear:'s Fluffy couldn't help to block it. And once it ran out of PP, it's Monzaemon :bewear:'s chance to strike with Aerial Ace. Sounds petty, but it works.

Getting defeated again, Guzma let the :yungoos: go and skedaddled away with everybody there. Koh got outta there, but not without looting a Buginium Z near Guzma's "throne". He then met the policeman from before as he went out.

His name is Nanu. He healed up Koh's squad right before Acerola caught up to them. She took the :yungoos: back to Aether House, Nanu went back to his post, and Koh hit the sack at Route 16 Pokemon Center.

From this point onward, I'll specifically use Digimon World Dusk for my storyline references. Why? Because there are some parts in Pokemon Ultra Sun which doesn't really make sense if I use references from Digimon World Dawn.

As for Guzma, I'd say that he's much like Whitney gym battle: surprisingly easy with the right strategy. I personally find his :pinsir: to be troublesome though, thanks to its Storm Throw. It would've OHKO-ed Monzaemon :bewear: if it weren't for his Fluffy, after all. 😅 I also nearly got another heart attack from :golisopod:'s First Impression. It's basically a much stronger version of Fake Out but without the flinch, so that's why it got Kokuwamon :vikavolt: pretty close to the red zone.

Hmm I'm late for the fun, but it being related to Digimon piqued my interest, so I'll start reading, though I'll go at my own pace (hopefully I'll catch up if you're not to close to the end!). Coronamon and Lunamon are cute, and the idea about Digimon Tamers going to the Pokémon world sounds fun. Good luck for your challenge (well, what remains of it, at least ^^)!

Ch 1- Flare sounds like a nice name for a Litten!
Ch 2- Seems like Nebby doesn't know how to control its Powers. Also, I like how you add the pictures as part of the story! As a writer advice, you usually want to start dialogue on a new paragraph to keep things clear. For the next time.

@Mystical Thanks for your advice, Isa. I rarely use dialogues for the gameplay parts of this, so gotta keep that in mind next time. :winkazurill: Also, given my updating pace, I'm pretty sure that you'll catch up in no time. I haven't even reached Ultra Necrozma yet, y'see. :winkazurill:
Warning: a pretty long chapter ahead. Seems like I couldn't decide whether I would tag the grand trial part with Guzma's or Lusamine's part. :thonkazurill:
The next morning, Koh went to Tapu Village to battle a veteran there. Youko :alolanninetales: single-handedly dealt with it, allowing Decker :krokorok: to evolve into :krookodile:.

He also went to Poke Pelago from Route 13 only to find a female :comfey: chilling there. She kept refusing to go away, so the tamer got to keep her with the nickname Lilly (from Lillymon).
Back to Aether House, neither he nor Acerola could find Lillie anywhere, only Hau and the kids there. Apparently she was abducted by Plumeria while they were away. Things became even worse when Gladion came in. Knowing that Lillie had been taken away, he somehow directed his anger at Koh who was equally confused with whatever's going on.

Renamon :alakazam: tried to protect Koh from Gladion's :golbat: who nearly broke his cello. Again, Flare :incineroar: took over for this one, managing to break :golbat:'s viola with his Darkest Lariat. Gladion sent out :typenull: next, but Kokuwamon :vikavolt:'s X-Scissor forcibly revealed the illusion's mastermind: a :zoroark:. The real :typenull: came out after the :zoroark:'s down. It also went down thanks to Monzaemon :bewear:'s Brick Break and Low Kick. And thankfully, Gladion managed to calm down after that battle.

He then took Koh and Hau with him to look for Lillie at Aether Paradise. However, Nanu came just when they were going to set sail. And what did he say?

Yes, the policeman who opened Po Town gate last night turned out to be the kahuna of Ula'ula. The tamer couldn't say no because Youko :alolanninetales: jumped out from her Pokeball, getting eager for this sudden grand trial.

She kept sparkling some Dazzling Gleam at Nanu's :sableye: until it went down. The kahuna then sent out his ace, :alolanpersian:, which was responded by Koh sending out Kokuwamon :vikavolt:. :alolanpersian:'s Power Gem turned out to be too much for him, thus forcing Monzaemon :bewear: to take over. Unlike the :vikavolt: though, he managed to one-shot both :alolanpersian: and :krokorok: with one Brick Break for each.

As soon as the grand trial concluded, Nanu healed Koh's squad up. He also gave him a Darkinium Z while he's at it. And now that it's done, the boys headed to Aether Paradise.

It's super intense here, to the point of Rotom Dex saying this:

The three went all the way to look for Lillie. Upstairs to the entrance, downstairs to the labs where they learn all about Ultra Beasts as well as :typenull: and :cosmog:'s backstories, then upstairs to the entrance again, all while battling the Aether people standing by (including Faba, but excluding Wicke who isn't a battler to begin with). And then the boys went outside where Guzma and some Team Skull grunts were waiting. Seems like the foundation had been sponsoring Team Skull for quite some time.

Gladion went straight to Guzma while Koh and Hau dealt with the underlings. Unfortunately, things went south for Gladion because the Skull boss managed to defeat him, so it gotta be Koh's revenge this time.

Just like last night, Guzma and Koh sent out :golisopod: and Kokuwamon :vikavolt: respectively. And again, :golisopod: gave Kokuwamon :vikavolt: a strong First Impression only for him to OHKO the giant isopod with a single Thunderbolt. The two then sent out :pinsir: and Monzaemon :bewear: for the next round. Koh and Monzaemon :bewear: decided to reuse their strategy back then: rendered the :pinsir: unable to use Storm Throw via Hyper Potion spam, then finished it off with an Aerial Ace. :masquerain: and Youko :alolanninetales: next, with the two making the air super chilly thanks to their Icy Wind and Ice Beam respectively, eventually broke :masquerain:'s viola. Guzma then sent out his new member, :vikavolt:, which was responded by Koh sending out Flare :incineroar:. Unfortunately, Flare :incineroar: gotten paralyzed by :vikavolt:'s Thunderbolt, but that didn't stop him from roasting it with Flamethrower, so that's that.

Getting defeated again, Guzma let the boys in. However, Dulse and Zossie got in their way this time. Dulse sent out the same :poipole: from before, so it's Decker :krookodile:'s turn to shine. She kept digging her way to the :poipole: even while getting badly poisoned, eventually surviving it like a champ. That being done, the Ultra Recon Squad members relented. And as expected, Lillie's there with Lusamine.

Much to Koh's surprise, Lusamine revealed that she's going to use Nebby :cosmog: to protect the world from darkness. This is obviously different from what he heard from Sayo last night after he messed with Team Skull at their base: the Lusamine from Sayo's Alola was quite obsessed with the Ultra Beasts to the point of her willing to stay in their world for the rest of her life. Gladion and Lillie, who turned out to be Lusamine's children, tried to persuade her to reconsider only for it to be no avail. Instead, she challenged Koh to a battle to prove her strength.

Round 1: :clefable: vs Renamon :alakazam:. Renamon :alakazam: used everything in his arsenal (including Recover) while the :clefable: only got to use Psychic and Hyper Voice.
Round 2: :lilligant: vs Flare :incineroar:. For whatever reasons, the :lilligant: managed to confuse Flare :incineroar: with its Teeter Dance, but that failed to stop him from roasting it with Flamethrower.
Round 3: :milotic: vs Kokuwamon :vikavolt:. Kokuwamon :vikavolt: nearly broke :milotic:'s violin with his Thunderbolt, but the :milotic:'s Dragon Pulse and Hydro Pump broke his viola instead.
Round 4: :milotic: vs Renamon :alakazam:. The weakened :milotic: went down to Renamon :alakazam:'s Shadow Ball before it had a chance to attack.
Round 5: :bewear: vs Youko :alolanninetales:. The :bewear: took pretty much of Youko :alolanninetales:'s health via Drain Punch even after she whittled down its health with Dazzling Gleam and Extrasensory. It eventually broke Youko :alolanninetales:'s viola with a Take Down.
Round 6: :bewear: vs Renamon :alakazam:. Again, Renamon :alakazam: got to avenge Youko :alolanninetales: like what he did with Kokuwamon :vikavolt:, this time via his Psychic.
Round 7: :lopunny: vs Monzaemon :bewear:. The :lopunny: tried to spam punches, though it only could use Fire Punch and Thunder Punch thanks to Monzaemon :bewear:'s Brick Break.

Okay, Lusamine may be defeated, but even that failed to stop her from facing the one who's going to steal Alola's light: Necrozma :necrozma:. She even took Guzma with her just like how Gladion took Koh and Hau with him. Speaking of Gladion, he wanted to join with his mom too, but she refused. And then they left to the Ultra Wormhole made from Nebby :cosmog:'s power.

Also, Nebby :cosmog: evolved into :cosmoem:, but nobody knew that it did. Not even Lillie who had been with it all this time.

The kids got outta there to find Wicke worrying about them. Dulse and Zossie were there too, lamenting about whatever Lusamine had done. They told everyone the other way to open the Ultra Wormhole: by calling out to :solgaleo: at Altar of the Sunne. Wicke had already prepared some rooms for them to stay, so everybody got to call it a day there. She even repaired Kokuwamon :vikavolt:'s and Youko :alolanninetales:'s violas and helped to perk everyone else up while she's at it.

  • About Nanu, most of his Pokemon was surprisingly easy for Monzaemon :bewear:. Well, aside from his :sableye: though, whom Youko :alolanninetales: took care of.
  • As for Guzma, I kinda repeated my strategies for his :golisopod: and :pinsir: because they worked nicely last time. :masquerain: and :vikavolt: are a different story, though.
  • I've highlighted the differences of how Lusamine acted in the original Sun and Moon compared to in Ultra. In case you didn't notice, here's where I did it:
Much to Koh's surprise, Lusamine revealed that she's going to use Nebby :cosmog: to protect the world from darkness. This is obviously different from what he heard from Sayo last night after he messed with Team Skull at their base: the Lusamine from Sayo's Alola was quite obsessed with the Ultra Beasts to the point of her willing to stay in their world for the rest of her life.
  • Speaking of Lusamine, her :milotic: and :bewear: took down the viola gang, and I couldn't risk breaking Decker :krookodile:'s violin, so that's why it was Renamon :alakazam: who finished them off. The other three were successfully taken care of, though.
  • About Wicke repairing Kokuwamon :vikavolt:'s and Youko :alolanninetales:'s violas, that was auto-heal kicking in. Can't really complain about this one, can I?

Ohh all right then! And yeah :3 no prob, Saf :happyazurill:

Ch. 3 Kuwagamon seems like a nice addition to the team, though Bug types tend to not be very strong. And nice festival. Also neat way to explain the different times in each Alola.

Ch. 4: nice school challenge. Glad no instrument was broken. Marine also seems like a nice addition. Also, Marineangemon and black Gatomon look really cute!

Whoa, @Mystical, thanks for the recaps. Idk if my writing is kinda confusing or what, but I hope that's not the case. :upsidedownazurill:
The next morning, Koh saw Lillie outside. She's still dressed in white, though it's different from her yesterday attire. He gotta admit that her new attire is pretty nice on her.

Gladion caught up with them a little bit later. He gave Lillie the Moon Flute which is said to be capable of calling the Legendary Pokemon when played together with the Sun Flute. Unlike his sister who wanted to save Nebby :cosmoem: and Lusamine, he decided to clean up the mess from yesterday. And Hau? He's back to his cheery self who wanted to chase his dream with his own squad.

Gladion then took Lillie and Koh to Poni Island where Altar of the Sunne is.

The two were dropped at Seafolk Village where they started their quest to find the local kahuna.

One of the villagers gave the tamer a male :aerodactyl: whom he named Dynasmon.
They also met the local captain, Mina, who told them to look for Hapu when Lillie asked for the kahuna's whereabouts. They did, starting from Poni Wilds where Koh got Rapidmon the male :furfrou:.
The tamer also surfed from Poni Beach to Ula'ula Beach where he got Mojyamon the male :crabrawler:, then went back to Poni Beach.
Managing to reach the Ancient Poni Path, he and Lillie met Hapu and her :mudsdale: right in front of her house. When they asked her about the kahuna of Poni Island, this is her answer:

The three went to the Ruins of Hope, but not without letting Hapu's granny registering :machamp: as Koh's Ride Pokemon. The tamer also took his time to recruit Goblimon the female :granbull: there.
In order to get to the Ruins of Hope, the tamer had to go through Poni Breaker Coast where he got Whamon the female :wailord:.
Lillie and Hapu's :mudsdale: were already there by the time Koh arrived. The kids went inside only to find this maze:

According to the books Lillie once read, they needed :machamp:'s power to go through the maze. So Koh did just that, calling his :machamp: ride and solving the puzzle. The two then met Hapu deeper in the ruins. Believe it or not, she just became the new kahuna of Poni, effectively following her grandfather's footsteps.

Hapu told them that in order to call :solgaleo: at Altar of the Sunne, they'll need two flutes: the Moon Flute Gladion gave them back in Aether Paradise and the Sun Flute sitting at Exeggutor Island. The two flutes must be played together at the altar, so going there would be pointless without grabbing the Sun Flute beforehand. That being said, the three (with the kahuna too) went back to Seafolk Village to set sail for Exeggutor Island.

Your English is fine. At least I haven't had trouble with it. I just like commenting on the chapters I'm reading, but I can just comment when I'm finished reading the whole thing if that's better.

@Mystical Either way is fine though. I just hope you'll enjoy the rest. :winkazurill:
And here I am, getting closer to the climax. :thisisfineazurill:
Back at Seafolk Village, Hapu told Lillie and Koh to come to Mina for a trip to Exeggutor Island. She was in for a surprise when Lillie told her about Hapu being the new kahuna.

According to Mina, Nanu had been overseeing the grand trial at Poni Island in addition to his own Ula'ula prior to Hapu's inauguration, so this should've lighten up his job. She then directed the two kids to the chief of the seafolk. He's willing to take them both to Exeggutor Island, but the captain held Lillie back because Exeggutor Island is a pretty crazy place. Plus, it used to be a trial site long ago, so that's why a trainer like Koh should go instead.

And off they went. Koh and the chief, I mean. And this is what the tamer sought after: the Sun Flute.

According to the chief, the :alolanexeggutor: living there are usually a noisy bunch. However, it seems like they're getting super hectic. Upon closer investigation, the boy found out that some :pinsir: disturbed them. He caught one of them whom he nicknamed Kuwagamon (remember when Coronamon said that the name Kuwagamon should fit better with the :pinsir: instead of the :grubbin: line?) and scared the other two away. As a thank-you gesture, one of the :alolanexeggutor: helped him to reach the upper part of the island.

He then went to the pedestal and took the Sun Flute. For whatever reasons, this is what the tamer got as soon as he took the flute:

Back at Seafolk Village (again), Lillie and Koh made their way to the altar via Vast Poni Canyon. However, their trip was interrupted by some Team Skull grunts desperately wanting to save Guzma. Battles ensued at this point with them requesting this upon their defeat:

And then there's Plumeria who had been watching all the ruckus. She went down to apologize to them, especially Lillie. Telling them about Guzma's connection with Lusamine, giving Koh a Poisonium Z of all things, even requesting them with the same thing as the grunts, she basically gave the impression that Team Skull isn't that bad just because it's full of misfits. That being said, the kids went off to Vast Poni Canyon after Plumeria left.

Hapu had been waiting for the two in front of the canyon. Just when they were going to go inside, the Ultra Recon Squad duo came. Apparently they felt betrayed by Lusamine (especially Dulse, since Zossie wasn't that angry), so Dulse felt like venting his anger on Koh just like what Gladion did back in the Aether House. His :poipole:'s Toxic was proven to be too annoying for someone like Decker :krookodile:, so Levi :mawile: had to take over just to make sure :poipole:'s attacks (especially Toxic and Fell Stinger) went awkward. Why? Because Levi :mawile:'s type combination makes both Fell Stinger and Poison Jab not that effective as well as ruining Toxic's effect in the first place. That, and both Lillie and Hapu actually offered to help out with whatever the Ultra Recon Squad is up to. It sure became a big help to alleviate Dulse's anger to the point of him requesting this:

How could they say no if that's what they're going to do in the first place?
Agreeing to help them out, the kids went into the canyon. Koh actually did all the battles, though. He also managed to catch Meteor (from Meteormon) the :carbink: in the cave and Ouja (from Oujamon) the male :machoke: outside.
The two kept walking until they reached a trial gate by nighttime. A trial gate's presence means that there's a trial ahead, so Lillie perked Koh's squad up before going in there.

Apparently this trial has no captain, so the tamer had to go on his own. This is basically Ilima's trial all over again but with dragons instead of the normies. That's right, he's been ambushed by the :jangmoo: line while going through the cave. And just like the trial of Ilima, he found a pedestal with the Dragonium Z inside just before the cavern exit leading to the altar. However...

There's Totem Kommo-o :kommoo: guarding the Dragonium Z, so Levi :mawile: got to deal with it. They opened with Drain Punch and Ice Punch respectively before the totem summoned a :noivern:. This forced Koh to use Roto-Boost and Hyper Potions to Levi :mawile: only for :kommoo: to break his cello. Then enter Youko :alolanninetales: who used Dazzling Gleam on both dragons which was retaliated by Poison Jab by :kommoo: and Screech by :noivern:. The second Dazzling Gleam broke :noivern:'s violin, but the totem broke her viola in return. Flare :incineroar: came out while the totem summoned another ally: a :scizor:. :kommoo: managed to heal itself via Drain Punch only to be drained again by Malicious Moonsault. Koh then alternated between Kokuwamon :vikavolt: and Monzaemon :bewear: to try chipping down the totem's health with Dig and Aerial Ace respectively. Thanks to the :bewear:'s Fluffy and his defensive nature (I'm not talking about Pokemon natures like Adamant or Modest, it's just a figure of speech), he managed to tank even Drain Punch and repeat Guzma's :pinsir: strategy but with Max Potions and several rounds of Aerial Ace, eventually breaking the totem's violin. The tamer then treated Flare :incineroar: with a Max Potion before roasting the :scizor: with Flamethrower.

Finally done with the natural trial, the tamer grabbed the Dragonium Z before going out to the altar. He put Levi :mawile: and Youko :alolanninetales: to rest while Lillie healed the others. Since the kids had to wait until sunrise to do the ritual anyway, they decided to camp out near the altar that night.

Whew, that was nuts. Totem :kommoo:, I mean. It managed to KO both my supposed aces: fairies. I did remember that it's weak to Flying-type moves, but :bewear: was the only one in my squad with such move, so it would be much riskier hadn't :noivern: got KO-ed beforehand. And come to think of it, the dragon trial in Ultra really is much more difficult than in the original SM. Heck, Sayo's :primarina: once OHKO-ed Totem :kommoo: big time with either Dazzling Gleam or Twinkle Tackle (I don't remember tbh) in my Moon savefile, so that's why.

Here comes, bane of the USUM nuzlockers :thisisfineazurill:
The next morning, neither Lillie nor Hapu could find Koh anywhere in the camp site. Turned out that he went back to the Pokemon Center to swap his team around and train them all, eventually evolving a lot of his Pokemon:
  • Compass :nosepass: into :probopass:

  • Sukamon :trubbish: into :garbodor:

  • Hyogamon :snorunt: into :glalie:

  • Wingdramon :shelgon: into :salamence:, switching her violin with a viola upon evolving
As soon as he's ready, the tamer went up to the Altar of the Sunne, taking Lillie with him. The two then played both the Sun Flute and the Moon Flute together. The sound of both flutes triggered some sort of special power in the altar, evolving Nebby :cosmoem: into :solgaleo: in process.

Lillie then requested Nebby :solgaleo: to help them catching up with Guzma and Lusamine to the Ultra Space. However, just when they were going to do so, the adults were thrown out from an Ultra Wormhole out of the blue. That, and Lusamine urged the kids to run away because:

By the word "that thing", she meant this:

Yes, :necrozma: managed to chase both her and Guzma all the way to Alola. It then proceeded to fight Nebby :solgaleo: in an ensuing battle, eventually absorbing the latter to be what we call Dusk Mane Necrozma :necrozmadusk: and summoning more Ultra Wormholes from which the Ultra Beasts came out for more attacks in Alola.

"Oh, great, Chief Glare's Ophanimon all over again," Coronamon sighed.
"No," Koh denied. "More like her when she was under ChronoCore's control. She wasn't being herself back then, remember?" the Light Fang tamer reminded his Digimon about that one battle when he and Sayo had to (spoiler again for those who haven't played Digimon World Dusk) snap the Light Fang leaders (both Glare and Ophanimon) back to their senses. Thankfully it managed to jolt Coronamon's memory this time. "You mean Ophanimon Core?" the Digimon reassured himself. "Yep."
Knowing what's going on, Flare :incineroar: immediately popped out to trick the :necrozmadusk: into using Psycho Cut on him (poor AI, lol) and and one-shot it with another Malicious Moonsault. However, the :necrozmadusk: fled right away, taking Nebby :solgaleo: with it and darkening the whole Alola.

By the time Dulse and Zossie arrived, it was already too late because "the :necrozma: took Alola's light". They're actually kind enough to lend their :lunala: for an Ultra Warp Ride. Not to Lusamine (who had been arguing with Dulse for quite some time), but to Koh. Why? Because the tamer's Z-crystals drew the :necrozma:'s attention somehow. Zossie also instructed him to go through the white portal in order to reach :necrozmadusk:.
And then Koh's Digivice rang just when he was preparing for his first Ultra Warp Ride. Seems like Sayo called him at the wrong timing.
Koh (K): (picked up the phone) "Hello?"
Sayo (S): "Hey, Koh. Wanna hear a good news?"
K: "Wait, what? I'd like to, but..."
S: (happily cut Koh's speech) "I finally rescued Lusamine from her own madness."
K: (surprised) "Eh? Lusamine? Mad? How come?"
S: "Remember when I told you that the Lusamine here wanna stay with the Ultra Beasts? She even fused with one of them (:nihilego:)."
K: (even more surprised) "Eh? Fused?"
Coronamon (C): "Like Biomerge but with Ultra Beast?"
S: "Well, yea, kinda like that."
Lunamon (L): "And how are things over there?"
K: "I, uh, I hate to say this, but :necrozma: took Nebby :solgaleo: away." (getting sad)
S: (had a doubt for a moment) "Necro... what?"
C: "Necrozma :necrozma:. Also, our Nebby is a :solgaleo: here."
S: (even more confused) "Necrozma :necrozma:... Solgaleo :solgaleo:... Just what in the world have you guys gone through?"
Koh's Rotom Dex (K-:rotom:): (sent over some photos of the newly-evolved Nebby :solgaleo: and Necrozma as :necrozma: and :necrozmadusk: to Koh's Digivice)
C: (forwarded the photos to Sayo's Digivice) "Here you go. FYI, the black thing is Necrozma :necrozma:."
L: (showed the photos to her tamer)
S: (looked at the photos) "Hmm..."
K: "The Lusamine here chased after :necrozma: all the way to the Ultra Space only to be thrown back here, so it's going to be my turn now."
L: (surprised) "Eh? But how? I mean, :necrozma: took your Nebby :solgaleo: away, right?"
C: (nodded) "Uh-huh. But these Ultra Recon Squad people are nice enough to lend Koh their :lunala:, y'see."
S: "Ultra Recon Squad, huh?" (thinking)
K: "I take it you didn't meet them? The guys in weird suits, I mean."
S: "Nope, not a chance."
K: "I see..." (disappointed)
Sayo's Rotom Dex (S-:rotom:): (sent over a photo of the newly-evolved Nebby :lunala: to Sayo's Digivice)
L: (to herself) "Here goes..." (forwarded the photo to Koh's Digivice) "Speaking of Lunala :lunala:, here's the one who took us to Lusamine. It's name is Nebby too."
C: (showed the photos to his tamer)
K: (looked at the photos) "So your Nebby is a :lunala:, huh?"
L: "Yep."
S: (started a different topic) "Say, wanna trade?"
K: (surprised) "What the...? Trading? But why now?"
S: "The thing is, I wanna give you something good, but the best way to do so is via our Pokemon, right?"
K: "You mean, like that one time when you gave me a King's Rock?"
S: "Yeah. Plus, I wanna see your starter by now, pretty please~?"
K: (sighed) "OK, OK, let's get started already. Coronamon, Lunamon, help us out."
C: "Roger that, sir."
L: "Okay~"
(Trading ensued between Koh's Flare :incineroar: (+ King's Rock) and Sayo's Hahn :primarina: (+ Focus Sash))
K: (took the Focus Sash from Hahn :primarina:) "Hey, a Focus Sash?"
S: "Bingo. I didn't get to use it when I fought Lusamine back then. It should be more useful in your hands, I believe." (took the King's Rock from Flare :incineroar:) "But wait, isn't this my King's Rock? Why does it come back here?"
K: "Hah, you got me." (smiled) "I once planned to use that to evolve my :poliwhirl: the next time we trade, but he broke his violin before I could do so. Sorry about that."
S: "Ooh, I see. Anyway, you still need your big cat, right? Let's trade back then."
K: "Yeah."
(Trading ensued again with the tamers returning their respective starters)
K: "Sayo, Lunamon, thanks again."
S: (giggled) "Eheheh, yeah. And sorry for calling out of the blue."
K: "Heh, it's okay, it's okay."
(Phone closed)
Equipping Sayo's Focus Sash to Decker :krookodile: and his own to Sukamon :garbodor:, Koh's finally ready to embark on his first Ultra Warp Ride. He hopped on the :lunala: and off they go.

The first attempt led the tamer to a warp hole that is 857 light-years away from where he was.

He actually managed to catch a female :grumpig: here whom he named Hakkai (from Cho Hakkaimon).
The second attempt led him to this city called Ultra Megalopolis.

The tamer boy was greeted by more of Ultra Recon Squad people upon his arrival there. The old man and the lady there introduced themselves as Phyco and Soliera, respectively. Just like Dulse and Zossie back in front of Vast Poni Canyon, they asked him to stop :necrozmadusk: (dubbed as the Blinding One) atop the Megalo Tower.

So he did just that, going up to the Megalo Tower to find :necrozmadusk: there. It then transformed into what we call Ultra Necrozma :necrozmaultra:.

"Here goes," Coronamon said. "ExoGrimmon all over again," he continued with Koh agreeing this time.
For this big battle, the tamer opened with Sukamon :garbodor: and her Toxic. She managed to survive :necrozmaultra:'s Photon Geyser thanks to the Focus Sash. Koh then switched to Decker :krookodile: who trolled the :necrozmaultra: big time because it wanted to use another Photon Geyser to finish the :garbodor: off. Getting annoyed, the Blinding One fired up a Dragon Pulse only to be responded with a Foul Play from the :krookodile:, turning :necrozmaultra:'s power boost against it. "Oh, crap," the tamer thought upon realizing that he's running out of Focus Sashes. He immediately switched to Compass :probopass: who (thankfully) managed to tank another Dragon Pulse and let the bad poison from Sukamon :garbodor:'s Toxic finish it off. That being done, Koh and the gang managed to rescue Nebby :solgaleo: from :necrozma:'s clutches, returning Alola's light in process. "Nebby :solgaleo:... Thank goodness, you're safe..." he smiled.

:necrozma: went into hiding somewhere in Alola and Nebby :solgaleo: went back to Lillie. Phyco and Soliera finally caught up with Koh by the time the battle's over. They thanked him for the help with the Blinding One and let him have their :poipole: whom he named Waspmon. Phyco also offered the tamer to ride either their :lunala: or :solgaleo: to go back to Alola. He chose to stick with :lunala: for this one.
Back at Altar of the Sunne, Lillie's gotten overjoyed by Koh's return. Dulse and Zossie thanked him too, just like Phyco and Soliera did. Lusamine also realized the errors in her way of doing things. As her apology, she gave Koh some Beast Balls, though it's not like he's going to hunt for more Ultra Beasts anyway. The mother and daughter duo then went back to Aether Paradise to help Nebby :solgaleo: recover. Also, Guzma said this before he left:

Right after everyone left, Mina came to fetch the tamer. Since Koh's island challenge technically isn't finished yet, she told him about her trial and took him back to Seafolk Village. However, seems like he's too beat to take it on right away, so the captain let him take a good rest before moving on.

Okay, people can say that :necrozmaultra: is the bane of USUM nuzlockers, but I'd say that it's true only if the player doesn't prepare properly. To be fair though, I've already read various strategies before dealing with it myself. From Toxic stalling (I partially did it), using Foul Play with :zoroark: (I did it too but without the :zoroark: just because I wasn't that lucky to get one myself), using Destiny Bond (I saved it for Plan Z since it's a suicidal move)... Ah, too many to count. I also remembered that there was an unused Focus Sash in my Moon savefile. That, and the crazy grinding due to the violists and cellists shuffling played a huge part to let me pull this strategy off. Again, it wasn't without some heart attacks because, y'know, :necrozmaultra: still hits like a truck, hence me equipping the Focus Sashes to the main players (the Toxic-wielding Sukamon :garbodor: and the Foul Player Decker :krookodile:) as well as me taking Compass :probopass: as the wall.

Since I don't really have time for major updates, let me have a minor update: seems like I forgot that :shelgon:/:salamence: switches instruments upon evolving (in this case, from violin to viola). I didn't really notice until recently when I played Pokemon Shuffle (from which I base the Pokemon types for this run) up to the :salamence: level. In case anybody don't get it, :salamence: is Flying type in Shuffle, hence Wingdramon :salamence: turning into a violist. Sorry about that. :pensiveazurill:

That being said, please let me know in case I miss anything else. Feel free to either comment here or poke me in PM / Discord to do so. Until next time. :winkazurill:

This particular trial really deserves its own post, since it's really long. :upsidedownazurill:
Now that Koh's done with the whole mess :necrozma: had caused, he shuffled his squad around as soon as he and Mina arrived at Seafolk Village. Training sessions ensued with more Pokemon evolving:
  • Mucho :natu: into :xatu:

  • Seadramon :magikarp: into :gyarados:
As soon as he's done, he went back to Mina to start the trial at her home. The first step for this trial is battling the captain herself.

Mina sent out her :mawile: and Koh sent out Buraimon :skarmory:. The metallic bird immediately scattered 3 layers of spikes just to spite :mawile:'s failed attempts to attack with Sucker Punches. Once he's done, the tamer switched to ElDradimon :torkoal: who roasted the :mawile: with Flamethrower in the sun (yes, ElDradimon :torkoal: has Drought as her ability). For Mina's :granbull:, the tamer switched back to Buraimon :skarmory: who took some damage from :granbull:'s Stone Edge and retaliated with Steel Wing. They did it thrice until the :granbull: broke his viola. Since Buraimon :skarmory: himself was nearing his limit, Koh switched to Compass :probopass: to deal with Mina's :ribombee:. It only took a single Power Gem to break :ribombee:'s viola. And now that it's done, Mina gave him a pink petal.

Turned out that the battle was just a warm-up. The real trial is petal-collecting from all the captains across Alola. The boy then went back to the Pokemon Center to do more squad shuffling.
C: "So now we go petal-hunting, huh?"
K: (nodded) "Yeah."
C: "Excluding Mina, we have 6 captains to visit. Who do you wanna visit first?"
K: "Hmm..." (contemplated) "How about Ilima? It's been quite a while since we left Melemele on a :mantine: that day."
C: "Okie dokie. I bet he'll be somewhere around Hau'oli."
K: "Hau'oli, huh?" :hmmazurill:
That being said, Koh flew to Hau'oli City on his :charizard: ride, but he failed to find Ilima anywhere. "The cemetery maybe?" he thought as he made his way there. Not without bumping into Hau and his :decidueye:, though.

They didn't battle there, just Hau giving Koh a Max Elixir before running off again. That, and the former kinda mentioned his :decidueye: getting overjoyed after defeating Ilima, so the captain must be around there. And he was right.

Ilima challenged Koh to a battle upon hearing that the latter's taking on Mina's trial. They sent out :gumshoos: and Monzaemon :bewear: respectively. Monzaemon :bewear: nearly one-shot :gumshoos: with a Brick Break while taking a Hyper Fang head-on from the :gumshoos:. One Brutal Swing later, the :gumshoos: broke his viola. :komala: next, Monzaemon :bewear:'s staying. Another Brick Break broke :komala:'s viola. :smeargle: next, Renamon :alakazam: took over. :smeargle:'s Extreme Speed and Renamon :alakazam:'s failure to unleash Focus Blast annoyed Koh big time, so he and Renamon :alakazam: decided to resort to All-Out Pummeling for this one. For the tamer's victory, the captain gave him an orange petal (author's side note: this kinda makes me excited for my Animation vs Pokemon challenge tho) and offered to take him to the next captain at Lush Jungle.

Since it's Lush Jungle, Koh kinda expected to see Mallow there. He did more squad shuffling at a nearby Pokecenter before entering Lush Jungle. As expected, she's in there with Lana, relaxing with some wild Pokemon when he came. Somehow Mallow got annoyed when Lana and Koh brought up the relaxing part to the point of her issuing a battle.

Round 1: :trevenant: vs Flare :incineroar:. A single Darkest Lariat took the :trevenant: out.
Round 2: :tsareena: vs ElDradimon :torkoal:. :tsareena: unleashed Bloom Doom which ElDradimon :torkoal: managed to hold. In return, :tsareena: barely survived a Flamethrower and managed to switch out thanks to U-turn.
Round 3: :shiinotic: vs ElDradimon :torkoal:. ElDradimon :torkoal:'s Lava Plume, which was initially aimed to :tsareena: ended up hitting :shiinotic: instead. A Heat Wave later, :shiinotic: went down.
Round 4: :tsareena: vs Buraimon :skarmory:. An Air Slash took down the already weakened :tsareena:, but not without Buraimon :skarmory: shrugging a Trop Kick off.

Upon Mallow's defeat, the girls gave the tamer boy green and blue petals. They also took him to Kiawe's place at Wela Volcano Park.

Remembering that one disastrous trial (read: the Totem :alolanmarowak: fight) back then, Koh decided to fly to a nearby Pokecenter and shuffle his squad, again. More shuffling means more training, yet he's fine with that, mainly because all the training sessions let Calmara :frillishf: evolve into :jellicentf:.

As soon as he's ready, the tamer went back up to Wela Volcano Park, this time for real. However, he only found that one hiker from the fire trial who filled in for Kiawe. And a moment later, the captain himself came. He somehow knew that Koh's there for Mina's trial.

Against Kiawe's :arcanine:, Koh sent out Swimmon :wishiwashi: who called her :wishiwashi: friends to form a school of :wishiwashischool:. They managed to hold :arcanine:'s Flare Blitz and retaliate with Aqua Tail. A second Flare Blitz ensued, but not without knocking out the big doggo with the recoil. The captain and the tamer then sent out :talonflame: and Compass :probopass: respectively. :talonflame: tried to scorch Compass :probopass: with a Flame Charge only for its violin to be broken by a Power Gem. :alolanmarowak: next, Seadramon :gyarados: took over. She gave the :alolanmarowak: a big Crunch and took the Shadow Bone like a champ. Another Crunch later, the :alolanmarowak: went down.
And then the hiker battled Koh out of the blue, serving as a round two. The tamer let Calmara :jellicentf: handle his :magmar: this time. She confused the :magmar: with her Water Pulse despite the sunny day, then sprinkled the salt on its wound with Brine. Upon Koh's 2 rounds of victories, Kiawe couldn't help but to give him a red petal and took him to Sophocles' basecamp, Hokulani Observatory.

After another squad shuffling, Koh paid Sophocles a visit while he was in the middle of saying goodbye to Molayne. Both the tamer and the captain decided to have a battle while Big Mo's there. (Big Mo is how Sophocles addresses Molayne btw)

Round 1: :togedemaru: (no, not Togemaru :togedemaru:) vs ElDradimon :torkoal:. :togedemaru:'s Spiky Shield protected it from ElDradimon :torkoal:'s Flamethrower, but it went down by another Flamethrower.
Round 2: :alolangolem: vs Monzaemon :bewear:. The latter nearly KO-ing the former with a Brick Break and tanked a Stone Edge like a champ. A Low Sweep later, :alolangolem: broke the violin.
Round 3: :magnezone: vs Compass :probopass:. The former managed to paralyze Compass :probopass: via Discharge which rendered him unable to attack. Compass :probopass: later managed to land an Earth Power to :magnezone:. Thanks to the previous Flash Cannon, Koh actually had to heal his :probopass: at this point only to be attacked by another Discharge. After another Discharges at each other, :magnezone: finally went down.

Sophocles understandably broke down when Molayne said goodbye for real. He immediately asserted himself that he's a tough kid, then gave the tamer a yellow petal. The captain then took Koh to the Aether House where Acerola should be and explained about Molayne having something to do with Professor Kukui on their way there.

It was already dark by the time they arrived at the Aether House. Sophocles had left and Koh saw Guzma outside. The tamer still couldn't believe his eyes (wait, what?) when Guzma said thanks for everything he had done during the :necrozma: crisis. And then Hau butted in by asking Guzma about his :golisopod:, to which the Skull boss stated that it's been his partner even before he started his own island challenge. The three guys had a nice, long chat, then parted ways. Not without Hau giving Koh a last warning: once they both finished up their island challenges, they're going to have a serious battle. That sure reminded Koh about Sayo, especially when it comes to the Digimon tournaments.

In the Aether House, the tamer couldn't find Acerola anywhere, only Nanu and the kids. Apparently the kahuna didn't feel like battling because Hau got him good earlier, so he simply gave the tamer a purple petal on Acerola's behalf.

K: (counting the petals) "Mina, Ilima, Mallow, Lana, Kiawe, Sophocles, Acerola..."
C: "Got all the petals?"
K: "Yep."
C: "Awright. Back to Mina, it is."
Getting reassured, the Light Fang tamer flew back to Seafolk Village. He did one last squad shuffling and went to Mina's house once more. Mina took all the petals Koh had collected to make a Rainbow Flower. It was the very thing that summoned the local totem, :ribombee:.

Yet again, Koh's Digivice rang at this very moment. Seems like Sayo didn't even learn when not to call her Light Fang rival.
K: (picked up the phone) "Hello?"
S: "Hey, Koh. I'm at Mount Lanakila right now. Where are you?"
K: "Seafolk Village."
S: (surprised) "WHAAAAAAT???????"
K: "And I'm with Totem :ribombee: right now. Bye."
(Phone closed)
He immediately prepared to deal with Totem :ribombee: as the Night Claw tamer became perplexed because she couldn't even recall any bug- or fairy-type trials in her Alola.

Compass :probopass: popped out to try dealing with Totem :ribombee:. The totem set up a Quiver Dance while got hit by a Corkscrew Crash, then summoned a :blissey:. Sukamon :garbodor: immediately took over while :ribombee: (aided by :blissey:) set up another Quiver Dance. By the time :ribombee: used Bug Buzz and :blissey: healed it with Heal Pulse, the :garbodor: badly poisoned the totem with Toxic. And then Sukamon :garbodor: used another Toxic on the ally as it and the totem used Helping Hand and Quiver Dance respectively. Knowing that the two Pokemon playing defensively, Koh decided to let the bad poison kick in as he stalled with 2 X Sp. Defs, a Hyper Potion, and a Roto Boost (he had too many Roto Boosts at this point) until Totem :ribombee: broke its viola. One down, Sukamon :garbodor: finally played offensive with a Sludge Bomb, breaking :blissey:'s viola as well.

Thanks to this seemingly petty strategy (tl;dr super effective Z-move + Toxic stall), the Light Fang tamer earned a Fairium Z from Mina's trial. As soon as he stepped out from the captain's house, Hapu and Hala got him.

The boy correctly guessed that it's grand trial time. Hapu's going to wait at Exeggutor Island whenever he's ready. Not now though, since it's even darker out there. Instead, Koh decided to stay at the Pokecenter that night.

That sentence highlights yet another one of Ultra's difference from the original SM. Both Ultra and original SM don't have any bug-type trials (though Guzma's case is kinda equivalent to one), but Mina doesn't have any proper trial in the latter despite being a captain, hence Sayo not facing any fairy-type trials at all.
Speaking of Mina's trial, the captain battles were pretty much manageable. However, Totem :ribombee:'s attacks really hit like truck when powered up by Quiver Dance, hence the move being the bane of my playthrough. That, and apparently I forgot to prepare some physical attacks alongside the special ones, hence me resorting to Toxic of all things. Things would've been different if it were :pelipper: instead of :blissey:, though.

Forgot Vikavolt :vikavolt: and Mimikyu :mimikyu: in Sun/Moon. Also, Araquanid :araquanid: in Ultra.

Do not feel bad about using Toxic versus that totem. +2 to all stats, Quiver Dance + Draining Kiss, and a possible partner with Heal Pulse and Light Screen? Mean. Goes out of control very fast (depending on Ribombee's mood).

Good luck versus Hapu.

@Deva Oops, my bad. I kinda meant to say "trial" instead of "totem Pokemon", gotta edit that part ASAP. 😅 And thanks for the heads-up anyway. :happyazurill:
Victory Road ahoy~ :naughtyazurill:
The next morning, Koh woke up early to prepare himself for Hapu's grand trial. He did another training session, this time with Viximon :eevee: tagging along. He became a :sylveon: while growing up. But unfortunately, BlackGatomon :alolanpersian: broke her cello while training.

Done with the training, the boy caught up with Hapu at Exeggutor Island. She's been waiting near the pedestal where the Sun Flute used to be. He went up to the kahuna and they started battling.

Round 1: :golurk: vs Viximon :sylveon:. :golurk: used Stealth Rock only for Viximon :sylveon: to return it with Magic Coat. He then used Never-Ending Nightmare right away as the opponent managed to set up another Stealth Rock. It later went down via a Shadow Ball.
Round 2: :mudsdale: vs Seadramon :gyarados:. The latter 2HKO'd the former with Aqua Tail on both turns. Not without Seadramon :gyarados: taking a Payback head-on, though.
Round 3: :flygon: vs Viximon :sylveon:. An Earth Power from the :flygon: clashed with a Moonblast from Viximon :sylveon: nearly broke the former's violin. It then went down with the latter's Draining Kiss right after unleashing another Earth Power.
Round 4: :gastrodoneast: vs Rosemon :tsareena:. She confused the :gastrodoneast: via Teeter Dance, then took it out with a Trop Kick despite Hapu's healing her :gastrodoneast: with a Full Heal.

As the two wrapped up the Light Fang tamer's last grand trial, the young kahuna told him that once a trial-goer finished with their last grand trial, they used to go to Mount Lanakila, north from Tapu Village, for their final trial: battling all four kahunas once more, at their fullest power, Gaia Origin-style. However, thanks to the newly founded Pokemon League at Mount Lanakila, the final trial's going to be a little bit different this time. The two returned to Poni Island, then Koh flew to Tapu Village and went north from there.

At the base of Mount Lanakila, the tamer met Gladion who thanked him for everything he had done for Lillie. The two went into a battle as a part of Gladion's thanks.

First off, :crobat: vs Buraimon :skarmory:. Their Acrobatics and Rock Slide, respectively, clashed thrice until :crobat:'s viola broke. :lucario: and Kokuwamon :vikavolt: next, except it's a :zoroark: disguising as :lucario:. The illusion was immediately broken as it unleashed a Black Hole Eclipse which Kokuwamon :vikavolt: managed to endure (the Z-move normally would broke Kokuwamon :vikavolt:'s viola if it weren't for his affection to his tamer trainer), then he retaliated with an X-Scissor. :zoroark: then tried to take the violist out with a Night Daze, but seems like Gladion didn't even factor in the Max Potion heal. The second Night Daze finally broke Kokuwamon :vikavolt:'s viola for real and Hyogamon :glalie: Freeze-Dried the :zoroark: to avenge him. As for the real :lucario:, ElDradimon :torkoal: roasted it with Flamethrower in the sun. And then there's Gladion's ace, :silvally:, equipped with a Water Memory which turns it into a water-type :silvally:. It actually failed to X-Scissor Rosemon :tsareena: who Trop Kicked it. Again, Hyogamon :glalie: took over, then proceeded to take another X-Scissor. Koh healed him with a Hyper Potion just when :silvally: was going to use Multi-Attack in the sun, then had him Freeze-Drying it. And that's it.

That smile tho. :uwuazurill:
Gladion told the tamer that he last saw his sister on her way up to Mahalo Trail for whatever in her mind and left. Since Koh had been wanting to see how Lillie and Nebby :solgaleo: were doing, he decided to take a little sidetrack there while reminiscing his "new trainer" moment with Flare :incineroar: (as :litten: back then).

Apparently Lillie wanted to entrust Nebby :solgaleo: to Koh, especially because she heard that :necrozma: would be much better if it stays with Nebby :solgaleo: and both of them stay with him. The tamer considered it as a honour (or should I say honor?) to get his very first virtuoso to the point that he let Nebby :solgaleo: and Flare :incineroar: have their reunion moment before housing it in a Quick Ball. At Coronamon's suggestion and Lillie's consent, he decided that Nebby :solgaleo:'s new name would be Apollo (from Apollomon a.k.a. what Coronamon was back in the intro). The two kids then went their own ways.

The tamer went back to scale Mount Lanakila for real. He took out the trainers there and caught Angewomon the female :absol: in the cave.
Remember that one :necrozma: who went into hiding somewhere in Alola as soon as it released Nebby, I mean, Apollo :solgaleo: from its clutches? Turned out that it escaped to this crater at Mount Lanakila. Remembering Lillie's wishes regarding :necrozma: and Coronamon's comment about :necrozmaultra:, Koh decided to catch it as his second virtuoso and name it ExoGrimmon. Shortly afterwards, Colress came. He gave the tamer boy N-Solarizer and N-Lunarizer to safely fuse ExoGrimmon :necrozma: with either :solgaleo: or :lunala:, respectively.

Some more walking and battling later, he arrived at the peak of Mount Lanakila where the league is. He met Professor Kukui a.k.a. Alola League's mastermind (?) there.

What's with that response tho? :thonkazurill:
Apparently the professor was reminded about his own experience at the Pokemon League in another region. He warned Koh about the league: once he comes in, he can't chicken out anymore. This somehow reminded him (the tamer) about the Gaia Origin challenge, for its nature being similar to the Pokemon League.
And then Flare :incineroar: popped out from his Pokeball. Seems like he's getting excited too.

The two reassured each other that they can handle it. Coronamon even wished that it won't be harder than the Gaia Origin challenge back when he was Apollomon.

That being said, Koh went to the nearby Pokecenter to perk everyone up and plan ahead for the league.

  • Okay, seems like Hapu's grand trial was surprisingly easy for a, umm, grand trial. I ended up battling all four of her Pokemon with only 3 Pokemon: two violins with proper counters to her type (Seadramon :gyarados: and Rosemon :tsareena:) and a viola with unexpected counters (Viximon :sylveon:), with the violist taking on both her :golurk: and :flygon: with their other types (ghost and dragon, respectively). I kinda regret not outright OHKO-ing her :gastrodoneast: while Rosemon :tsareena:'s still there, though. :upsidedownazurill:
  • I described the final trial prior to Alola League's foundation as "an all-out battle with all four kahunas at their fullest power, Gaia Origin-style". By the word "Gaia Origin-style", I mean all four of them must be battled in a row, much like the Elite Four in gens 1-4 (+ORAS).
  • I'd say that Gladion was even more annoying than Hapu, especially his :zoroark: and its perks. I mean, we all know that :zoroark: can disguise as other Pokemon, right?
  • Excluding any possible virtuosos, Mount Lanakila's base and upper part kinda count for Pinwheel clause, hence my :absol: and :necrozma: encounters.
And now, please excuse me while I plan for the Elite 4. :whistleazurill:

Awright, here comes the Elite Four. :thisisfineazurill::thisisfineazurill::thisisfineazurill:
Done with all the preparations, Koh and the gang went into the Pokemon League. This is the first thing he saw inside:

Four chambers for what trainers call the Elite Four. Not really what the Light Fang tamer had in mind because he originally thought it's going to be Gaia Origin all over again. "Sounds good!" he said as Professor Kukui told him that challengers are to fight the Elite Four in whatever order they want, no specific arrangements. The chambers themselves, from left to right, give away some clues to the challengers that they'll be up against steel-, rock-, ghost-, and flying-type specialists. As for Koh, he started with the leftmost one, leading him to Molayne of all people.
"So this is what Sophocles talked about, huh?" the tamer and his Digimon quietly wondered upon seeing Molayne there. Regardless, battle ensued between them.

Round 1: :klefki: vs Flare :incineroar:. Despite the Reflect and Spikes :klefki: had set up, Flare :incineroar: successfully roasted it with Flamethrower twice.
Round 2: :metagross: vs Monzaemon :bewear:. Thanks to Monzaemon :bewear:'s Fluffy, he managed to tank lots of Zen Headbutts and brutally swung his arms at :metagross: in retaliation.
Round 3: :alolandugtrio: vs Monzaemon :bewear:. A single Brick Break took care of the :alolandugtrio:. Not without Monzaemon :bewear: taking an Earthquake or two head-on, though.
Round 4: :magnezone: vs Flare :incineroar:. Both Flamethrower and Thunderbolt hit really hard at each other, then the next Fire Fang burned :magnezone: right after Molayne's Full Restore kicked in. A Full Heal from Molayne later, another Fire Fang took it out.
Round 5: :bisharp: vs Monzaemon :bewear:. Again, Fluffy and Brick Break helped Monzaemon :bewear: to breeze through :bisharp:'s defenses.
Done with Molayne, the tamer boy moved on to the middle-left chamber where Olivia awaits.
Recalling Hapu's explanation about the final trial in the past, Koh basically got the impression that Olivia would've been here at Mount Lanakila even without the Alola League. She is Akala's kahuna, after all.

Round 1: :armaldo: vs Buraimon :skarmory:. The :skarmory:'s metallic wings literally tore through :armaldo:'s defenses while trying to avoid some Rock Blasts himself.
Round 2: :gigalith: vs Rosemon :tsareena:. Shrugging the sandstorm :gigalith: had whipped out, Rosemon :tsareena: gracefully Trop Kicked it big time.
Round 3: :lycanrocmidnight: vs Rosemon :tsareena:. Again, Rosemon :tsareena: gracefully Trop Kicked the :lycanrocmidnight:, this time while withstanding two Stone Edges and a Continental Crush as well as trolling :lycanrocmidnight:'s Counter during her healing turn.
Round 4: :probopass: (probably the same one whom Koh met at Olivia's house) vs Monzaemon :bewear:. Unlike his gigs with Molayne's squad, Monzaemon :bewear: had to get Olivia to run out of her Full Restores just to take her :probopass: out. And that's while he got paralyzed from a Thunder Wave from :probopass:.
Round 5: :cradily: vs Buraimon :skarmory:. Again, Buraimon :skarmory: had to rely on his metallic wings for this one.
Two down, two to go. Koh's next challenge would be Kahili in the rightmost chamber.
The tamer only got to meet this golfer lady at Ten Carat Hill when he grabbed his Flyinium Z. Turned out that she was the island challenge champion several years ago.

Round 1: :braviary: vs Hyogamon :glalie:. Both Brave Bird and Ice Beam hit really hard at each other, but only the latter managed to OHKO the :braviary:.
Round 2: :hawlucha: vs Buraimon :skarmory:. Seems like the :hawlucha: hates its own type. Why? Because it easily went down with only two Aerial Aces.
Round 3: :mandibuzz: vs Viximon :sylveon:. It's an awkward romance here (?). From the :mandibuzz: flattering Viximon :sylveon:, then it suddenly became "love at the first Brave Bird" (thanks to his Cute Charm), and that's while Viximon :sylveon: kept attacking with Moonblasts. He would be such a jerk if it wasn't a battle, though.
Round 4: :toucannon: vs Buraimon :skarmory:. Buraimon :skarmory:'s Rock Slide managed to go through :toucannon:'s Beak Blast thrice and made even better with one of the Rock Slides flinching it.
Round 5: :oricorio: vs Flare :incineroar:. Sure, :oricorio:'s Teeter Dance did confuse Flare :incineroar:, but it failed to stop him from breaking the :oricorio:'s dancing stances with his electrified fists.
And then the tamer went for the last round: Acerola in the middle-right chamber.
Now that Acerola's here, Nanu's appearance in the Aether House during Mina's trial finally made sense. That is, unless she made a double of herself back then.

Round 1: :banette: vs Monzaemon :bewear:. The bear brutally swung his arms just like what he did to Molayne's :metagross:.
Round 2: :froslass: vs Flare :incineroar:. His Flamethrower melted her Blizzard (if you know which one used which, that is).
Round 3: :palossand: vs Rosemon :tsareena:. Like her previous gigs with some of Olivia's squad, Rosemon :tsareena: gracefully Trop Kicked the sand castle while surviving its Never-Ending Nightmare of all things.
Round 4: :dhelmise: vs Hyogamon :glalie:. Since the anchor can't even survive the cold, Hyogamon :glalie: proceeded to whip up his icy powers around it.
Round 5: :drifblim: vs Viximon :sylveon:. :drifblim:'s Ominous Wind clashed with Viximon :sylveon:'s Shadow Ball. That is, until the balloon bursted.
Now that the boy's done with all of the Elite Four members, the portal in the middle glowed, leading him to the Champion's chamber. He only found a throne in there, though.

As soon as Koh approached the throne, Professor Kukui came. He told him that there's usually a surprise "final boss" after a challenger is done with the Elite Four, dubbed as the Champion. However, since Alola's Champion this time would be the first one, that "final boss" would be Professor Kukui himself, except not. He joked about it.

And then there's Hau. He just finished the Elite Four too, and now going for an all-out battle with Koh for the Champion title.

Round 1: :alolanraichu: vs Viximon :sylveon:. The ribbon boi threw some Shadow Balls to :alolanraichu: while withstanding its Psychic.
Round 2: :tauros: vs Monzaemon :bewear:. Despite the bull's Intimidate and Earthquake, Monzaemon :bewear: took it out with some brick-breaking (pun kinda intended).
Round 3: :noivern: vs Viximon :sylveon:. Koh's Eeveelution really lived up to his reputation as a dragon slayer thanks to his Moonblast.
Round 4: :vaporeon: vs Rosemon :tsareena:. Hau's Eeveelution did try to charm Rosemon :tsareena: and drench her with Hydro Pump, yet it went down with her Trop Kick (again).
Round 5: :crabominable: vs Buraimon :skarmory:. :crabominable:'s Ice Hammer clashed with Buraimon :skarmory:'s Steel Wing to the point that the latter gotten too close to breaking his cello. Fortunately, the :skarmory: managed to turn the tables on the :crabominable: via his Aerial Ace, breaking its cello instead.
Round 6: :decidueye: vs Monzaemon :bewear:. The owl used Bloom Doom right off the bat, yet the bear managed to survive it. And then it's Leaf Blade vs Aerial Ace and Brutal Swing (the last two being Monzaemon :bewear:'s moves), eventually tiring the :decidueye: out. This marks the second time Koh had to fight Hau's starter with something other than his own starter (the first one was when they first arrived at Ula'ula Island).
The two boys truly had fun battling each other to the point of Hau saying this:

Professor Kukui then officially congratulated Koh for being the very first Champion of Alola League and recorded his squad in the Hall of Fame.

The stamp kinda covered Buraimon :skarmory: tho. :thonkazurill:

Back at Iki Town, everyone had a party for celebrating everything that happened recently. Even if Hau had won, they would still celebrate it anyway. Everybody came, including Gladion and Mina who hid themselves from the crowd. They chit-chatted, paid their respect to the guardian deities at the nearby ruins (during which Koh behaved like an atheist respecting their religious friends), and danced all night long.

A lot of things happened afterwards:
  • Team Skull had been disbanded
  • Sina and Dexio had been researching about something
  • Dulse and Zossie were seen at Aether Paradise for whatever reasons
  • Gladion left for Kanto to train by himself (and it seems like he got his own fan club back at Aether)
  • Elio fought the Elite Four and Koh at some point and won, making him the second Champion of Alola
  • Koh and Coronamon went back to the Digital world via Kudamon's portal, leaving all of his Pokemon in Elio's care

  • Molayne was quite a piece of cake because I only had to use two out of my six mons. Sure, his :metagross: was quite a drag for it could possibly put both of my viable mons vulnerable. Or so I thought, until I remembered Monzaemon :bewear:'s Fluffy.
  • I'd say that Olivia's E4 squad gave me quite a headache (a little bit overstatement here), but not as bad as her kahuna squad. That's right, I used three mons instead of four and nobody died broke their instruments this time.
  • As for Kahili, she was, well, okay. I actually had the most fun with her :mandibuzz: thanks to this "love at the first Brave Bird" thing with Viximon :sylveon:.
  • No comment for Acerola's squad. If anything, I actually had to use 5 different mons for it. That's all.
  • About Hau, his :crabominable: and :decidueye: were the real pain in the neck. The former with its Ice Hammer hitting Buraimon :skarmory: like a truck and the latter with its Z-move, Bloom Doom, which could've OHKOed Monzaemon :bewear: if he had either Klutz or Unnerve instead of Fluffy. In other word, I owe Monzaemon :bewear: his Fluffy big time.
Now that the main story is done, I'm planning to continue to Episode RR with Elio's perspective instead of Koh's. However, I'll drop the whole String Hexalocke rules in favor of a scramble. Click here for my request about it.

Also, while I'm at it, please vote in my Animation vs Pokemon challenge if you haven't done so. It's going to be closed in 14th August and I still need more input until then, so please give yours too. Thanks for both your votes there and your interest here. :mrgreenazurill:

Awright, I've got my Episode RR team. Here goes:
  1. Buraimon :skarmory:
  2. Rosemon :tsareena:
  3. Viximon :sylveon:
  4. Elio's Wailord :wailord:
  5. Elio's Houndoom :houndoom:
  6. Elio's Goodra :goodra:
Btw in case you didn't notice about the color change in Koh's :sylveon:'s nickname, I've changed the whole coloring system. Instead of the instruments (violin, viola, cello), those colors will be based on genders (boy, girl, neither). And since Viximon :sylveon: is a boy, well, that's it.

And now gimme some time to snag Elio's squad~ :whistleazurill:
