Hau (Japanese: ハウ Hau) is a character introduced in Pokémon Sun and Moon. He is the grandson of the Island Kahuna for Melemele Island, Hala. He serves as a rival character and ally to the player in Pokémon Sun and Moon.

In the games

Hau is described as a big-hearted boy who quickly befriends the player once they move to the Alola region. He is the grandson of Hala, who is the Kahuna of Melemele Island, and his favorite food is malasada, a famous treat in the Alola region. One of the villagers in Iki Town, where they live, comments that as a boy, Hau had once witnessed Hala in a rage, which frightened him to the point of tears. Nothing Hala did could comfort him, which he claims is the reason why Hala is "too soft" on Hau.

Once the player has chosen a starter Pokémon, Hau will challenge the player using the starter Pokemon weak to the player's choice. Upon losing, he quickly shrugs off his defeat as he says that he is having fun. He also embarks on the Island challenge at the same time as the player, and completes the challenges at around the same pace, until at the most Sophocles's trial. Hau's happy-go-lucky attitude affects most of his early battles as he didn't mind losing, something that irritates Gladion after their first battle.

Hau joins the player on a tour in the Aether Paradise after finishing their Akala Island trials. He is shocked to hear from Lusamine that she is over forty years old, and also comments that she looks like Lillie without knowing of their connection.

When the Aether Building is raided by Team Skull, Hau manages to win a battle against a Team Skull Grunt, but says that battles he can't afford to lose aren't any fun. Before the player returns from Po Town, Hau loses a critical battle against Team Skull Admin Plumeria when she and her grunts kidnaps Lillie, and is left depressed and in doubt of his own skills because of this.

Hau joins the player and Gladion in their attempt to rescue Lillie and her Cosmog from the Aether Foundation. He is constantly irritated by Gladion's orders and lack of explaining, but manages to take down several Aether Foundation Employee with him and the player before reaching Lillie. He is surprised when Lusamine reveals that Lillie and Gladion were her children. When Lusamine attempts to open up the Ultra Beasts wormholes, Gladion orders Hau to keep Guzma busy while he deals with the recently-arrived Nihilego, but Lusamine and Guzma manages to achieve their objective and escape.

When the player is about to travel to Poni Island, Hau expresses his intention to hold back the island challenge and train himself with Hala instead, finding himself not sufficiently strong enough yet. When the player is about to enter the Pokémon League building, Hau catches up to them and challenges the player to another battle. Upon losing, Hau reaffirms his determination to get stronger, and spurs the player on for his Pokémon League challenge. The day after the player becomes the Champion, Lillie departs for Kanto without having been able to say it to the player and Hau, who is devastated by this and is left in tears after Lillie's ship has left.

Hau is one of the possible NPCs who can challenge the player for the title of Champion, implying that he has completed all his island trials. He will always be the first challenger to appear after the player has defeated the Elite Four for the second time.

Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon Special Demo Version

Hau'oli City Hall
"Hey, is your name Sun?"
Regardless of choice: "I'mi Hau! Nice to meet you! I'm glad my grandpa asked me to come to City Hall. I got to meet you, after all!"
"Are you Sun's mom? Nice to meet you!"
"Ooh, that sounds like a great idea! I’ll show you all the coolest stuff, Sun!"
Hau'oli City Shopping District
"Waahh! It's Team Skull! These baddies are always stealing Pokémon from people!"
"Pokémon are our friends! We can't just give them to you!"
"Sun, you've got a Pokémon, right? Let's give these guys a Pokémon battle!"
"There's nothing to be scared of as long as we've got Pokémon by our side, eh? Sun, your Pokémon’s called Greninja, right? That's so cool! Follow me! I'll show you where the Pokémon Center is. I wanna heal up my Pokémon, too!"
  • Upon approaching the Pokémon Center
"Sun! The Pokémon Center's over here!"
Hau'oli City Pokémon Center
"If you talk to the woman at the counter, she can restore your Pokémon to perfect health. Or you can use Potions to heal your Pokémon. Oh, that reminds me, Sun! Here, you can have one of my Super Potions!"
"All right, where should we go next?"
Hau'oli City Shopping District
  • After visiting the Pokémon Center
"Hi, Professor Kukui! This is Sun! He moved here from the Kanto region—all the way across the ocean!"
"Professor Kukui is researching Pokémon moves."
"Hey, Professor, you should train Sun!"
"We just ran into those Team Skull thugs, and it got pretty rough!"
"I know you and Greninja can do it, Sun! Good luck, Sun! I'll show you around some more when you're done!"
"Good luck, Sun! I'll show you around some more when you're done!"
Ten Carat Hill Farthest Hollow
"Sun! Whoa, you got a Z-Ring! I guess you cleared the trial, eh? Congratulations! I've got a trial for you, too! Look over there!"
"I forgot that I gave you my Super Potion, and I had to run away all the way out here!"
"You're awesome, Sun!"
"I wanna be an awesome Trainer, too!"
"Hey, Sun, now that you're finished with the trial, I'll show you the way to the malasada shop!"
"Woo-hoo! Let's bring Sun's mom, too!"
"All right, I'm about to eat every malasada in the shop!"

Pokémon Sun and Moon

Iki Town
"Hey! You and me! Let's have a Pokémon battle!"
"Fair enough. Then I'm Hau. And my partner's <Hau's starter Pokémon>!"
"Your <player's starter Pokémon> looks really cool, too!
Regardless of choice: "Yeah! So let's battle! I couldn't wait for you to find your way to Iki Town, so I've been all over looking for you!"
  • If walked away
"Hold on! You gotta battle with me!"
  • If talked to again
"You will battle me, right? I know you will! Right?"
Yeah, and I won't lose!: "All right! This is gonna be great!"
Not now!:
"Very well, then! Let the Pokémon battle begin!"
  • Upon being defeated
"Hoooo-wah!"
  • After being defeated
"Hoo-ee! That gave me chicken skin! <Player>, right? Your <player's starter Pokémon> was awesome!"
"Now that settles it! I'm going all out tomorrow!"
"Tutu, isn't that..."
  • Melemele Festival
"Ho! Howzit, <player>? Man, I thought you'd never make it! Me and <rival's starter Pokémon>'ve been waiting for ages!"
"Hold on... Didn't anyone explain to you about tonight?!"
"As long as we both have a good time, then I think we can call it a great battle, eh?"
  • Upon being defeated
"What? It's already over?!"
  • After being defeated
"Phew... That was awesome, <player>!"
"That was a really great battle! I had a blast fighting you!"
"Sounds great, right? I can't wait to have a real adventure!"
Professor Kukui's laboratory
"A-lo-la!"
"The salty breeze sang to me and brought me here to you!"
"Whoa-ho-ho!"
"Is that a loft?! That's awesome!"
"So that's the Rotom Dex, eh? It's kinda cute."
"I got one from my gramps, too!"
"I'm good. I just wanna play with my Pokémon! I mean, uh, train with them. Right!"
Route 1 Hau'oli Outskirts
"The kahunas sure are something, eh? Able to calm a raging Pokémon without even needing to battle... Now that's something! I mean, I like Tauros plenty and all... but it is pretty scary! I don't want to ride on it!"
"So where are you two off to now?"
"Nice idea! You're always on top of things, Lillie! <Player> just got here to Alola, huh? Then let me tag along, too! I wanna go get something good to eat!"
"Then what're we waiting for! This way! Come on!"
Hau'oli City Beachfront
"Beach time! Yeaaahhh!"
Hau'oli City Shopping District
"He-e-ey! <Player>! I thought I recognized the sound of those feet!"
"So what do you think? Hau'oli is something, eh? Alola's gotta be the best place ever to live!"
"Oh yeah!"
"Hey, <player>. Come in here with me. I've got a good idea of something you could do!"
"Hey, miss. Is it true that you can get some kinda special gift if you have a Rotom Dex?"
"Awesome!"
"Isn't that awesome, <player>? You got a Poké Finder!"
"So, like, what's a Poké Finder?"
"Man, that Rotom Dex is cool! It's like a whole nother partner, <player>! I mean, on top of your Pokémon partner!"
"Oh, but I guess since it's Rotom inside... it pretty much is a Pokémon partner? Either way, you're pretty darn lucky. Meet you outside when you're done in here!"
"We got his/her Rotom Dex upgraded! Now it can take pictures, too!"
"Ahahaha! What was that for, Rotom? Go and put that little trickster back in your Bag, <player>, and follow me! Enough feasting for the eyes... It's time we take care of our stomachs!"
"Howzit, <player>! If you're looking for good eats, you've found 'em!"
"Plus malasada make your Pokémon like you. And affectionate Pokémon are better in battle!"
"Who could resist giving their Pokémon a few malasada, eh? They're just so cute!"
"Now that I've got some fuel in me, I wanna go right down to the Marina and scream out loud... "Watch me, Tutu!" No... "Watch me, world! I'm gonna beat even my old gramps someday!""
Route 2
"Howzit, <player>? Your Pokémon doing all right?"
Yeah, fine: "Well, I know my team's seen better days, that's for sure!"
Not so good...: "Same here! My team has seen better days, for sure."
"Come on, <player>. Let's stop by the PMC!"
"You know that Verdant Cavern place, right? I guess it's kinda, like, sacred to Tapu Koko."
"You aren't even allowed to go into it unless you're on your island challenge."
"Oh yeah! Almost forgot! I have something pretty amazing to share with you, <player>. You lucky thing!"
"Revives are solid items to have! If your Pokémon faints in battle and can't go on, then a Revive will perk 'em right back up! But you probably won't find Revives here. Didja know that Poké Marts sometimes sell different things? And not just that! The two clerks at the counter even sell different things from one another!"
"I think I'll get myself a treat at the café to pump myself up before trying the first trial!"
"Mmm, Pinap Juice! I love it!"
Route 3
"He-e-ey, <player>! Oh! And Lillie's with you, too!"
"Just finished up my trial! Heh!"
"Hey, <player>! I wanna see if I really learned anything from my trial. Let me battle you again!"
  • Upon being defeated
"Aww, man! I wanted to show off my Pokémon's best side more!"
  • After being defeated
"So you and me both beat that Totem Pokémon, huh, <player>? Looks like we're getting pretty strong! But I wonder if I'll ever really be able to beat my gramps at this rate..."
"Heh heh, right..."
"It's all a part of the trials, yeah? After you clear one island's trials, you gotta battle that island's kahuna!"
"I don't know about fierce..."
Hau'oli City Beachfront
  • After speaking to Mom
"Hey! <Player>!"
"I just told my mom that I'm going to Akala Island next! Then she slapped me on the back so hard I'm still feelin' it and sent me on my way!"
"Do you think the boat's ready? It's the professor's own boat, right? Let's go to the Marina and check it out!"
Hau'oli City Marina
"Hey, Prof, are you sure this old thing's really seaworthy?"
"We-e-e are off! Come on, grandma! Kick it up a notch!"
"Ha ha ha! You're probably just worried about your silly hat flying off! I wonder what kind of island Akala is, huh? Seeing all of Alola for myself is half the fun of doing the island challenge! Isn't this just the best, <player>?!"
Heahea City
"Land ahoy! All right! Akala Island, here I come!"
"What a stick in the sand! Help me out here, <player>! It was funny, right?"
Regardless of choice: "What about you, Professor?"
"Shoots, I know where I'm going first, and that is straight to the Pokémon Center!"
"I wonder what kind of malasada they make on Akala, eh?"
Paniola Town
"Hey! <Player>! Glad I ran into you... So we can see who's stronger now! My gramps must've thought I did good enough in my grand trial, 'cause he gave me a Z-Ring, too!"
"Having a battle in a place like Paniola Town feels like we're in a real old-fashioned Western showdown or something, right? This is so cool! Though if we're real honorable cowboys, we've gotta make sure our teams are healthy first."
"Awright, Pikachu and team! Let's show this newbie what Alola's got!"
  • Upon being defeated
"Nice! How'd you come up with that kind of battle plan? You gotta tell me!"
  • After being defeated
"Ma-a-an, that was some kinda battle! Our Pokémon all look like they had a blast, too!"
"Right then. Here. I'll share my bit of good luck with you, <player>."
"You know how the Totem Pokémon are all, like, surrounded by some aura of power? If you use a Dire Hit on your Pokémon and manage to land a critical hit, that aura won't mean a thing!"
"You know, Pokémon battles are just, like, sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. But you're only really a loser if you don't have any fun while you're at it. Right? Anyway, I'm heading off to Paniola Ranch!"
Route 5
"Ha ha ha! Man, I lost again!"
"I am! So seriously! I'm seriously enjoying it!"
"Whoa! Hey, <player>!"
"This guy is plenny scary!"
"You know my gramps? Wait. So you think I'm strong?"
"Thanks, <player>. And <first Pokémon in party>, too. It was a good battle!"
"Phew... Looks like I've gotta train up my team if I'm gonna take on the trial at Brooklet Hill next! Here, <player>, take these with you. We're gonna beat this island challenge!"
Battle Royal Dome
"Dude! It's the Masked Royal! I wanna battle! I wanna battle!"
"Heeeee!"
"But, Mr. Masked Royal... How'd you even know that we're doing our trials right now? Oh! I get it! Because of our amulets, huh?"
"Well, I'm having a blast!"
"But why are you here? Why would you even wanna do a Battle Royal?"
"...Wow. You're just a ray of sunshine, eh? I think you'd have a lot more fun if you just let yourself have a good time with everybody else. You can do a lot more together, too!"
"Well, I don't know what his deal is, but I thought that battle was just plain fun! That's why I like doing Battle Royals. And my Pokémon seem to like them, too!"
Heahea City
  • Dimensional Research Lab
"You really think so?!"
"Fearsome Pokémon...?"
"I'm off to check out Diglett's Tunnel next! It's a whole cave made by Pokémon, right?"
  • Outside Dimensional Research Lab
"Hey, <player>! So you've made it through all three captains' trials, yeah? Then you should go meet Kahuna Olivia! She lives in the town past Diglett's Tunnel."
"Diglett's Tunnel is...let's see... From here, it's kinda near the PMC! It's easy to walk right past it, though, so keep your eyes peeled!"
"Now it's malasada time for me!"
Diglett's Tunnel
"<Player>!"
"Aue! I was wondering who you were playing around with without me, and it's Team Skull!"
"See you on the flip side!"
  • After defeating the Team Skull Grunts
"Man, <player>, when I fight with you... It's like even my Pokémon feel more at ease! You really are some kind of Trainer. That's it! I've just gotta give you something!"
"Max Ethers will restore all the PP to one of your moves, you know? Pretty great, right?"
"Now I'm gonna go have some more fun with those Diglett! See ya!"
Akala Outskirts
"Aue! You're Kahuna Olivia! I'm Hau from Iki Town! You've gotta let me battle you!"
"Oh, hey, <player>! Guess what? This weird green guy from Aether told me to come to Hano Grand Resort once I finished up with my grand trial here on Akala. Crazy, right?"
"I may not be as strong as my gramps, Hala... But I can still raise up <rival's starter's first evolution Pokémon> and the rest of my team to do their best!"
Hano Grand Resort
"Wait! Take me, too!"
"Thanks! Are you coming, too, Professor?"
"Yup! It's good-bye, Akala Island! Though I guess we can come back anytime we want to, huh?"
Heahea City
  • At the sea port
"Can you believe a big hunk of iron like Aether Paradise can float in the sea?! And it's all cuz of the Pokémon holding it up. Did you know that, <player>?"
I knew that: "Awww... I thought I finally had one up on you."
Really?!: "Knew I could count on you to react!"
"Ho, I can't wait to actually see inside Aether Paradise for myself!"
Aether Paradise
"Wait? You know who we are? How'd you know that?!"
"Yeah, I took the first chance I had to join in the island challenge once I turned 11! 'Cause, someday, I really want to be able to beat my gramps...but he's way too strong!"
"Wow!"
"Yeah. My gramps is always saying that nature's got its cruel side, sure as it gives us blessings."
"But can the Aether Foundation really protect all the Pokémon that're out there?"
"That's pretty amazing! The Aether Foundation seems awesome. But why'd you bother setting up a branch in a place like Alola?!"
"Wow, there are even Pokémon that got done in by Team Skull, huh?"
"Wow, Miss Lusamine! I don't know how you do all this! You're, like, not even that much older than us!"
"You are?"
"Wait, WHAT?!"
"L-like what you wear? I don't think anyone else could pull off that kind of look! Except maybe Lillie..."
"Miss Lusamine, stand back! That thing's...not right!"
"<Player>. Can you distract that thing? I've gotta get Miss Lusamine outta here..."
"What? Miss Lusamine, did you say something?"
"I never thought I'd actually get to see the Ultra Wormhole in my life... We've gotta tell Professor Burnet about this the next time we see her!"
"Yes! Big Malasadas! Awesome! Isn't it crazy how malasadas taste even better when you eat 'em together with someone else?"
"We will! Thanks, Ms. Wicke!"
On the boat
"Ho... My heart's still kinda racing, you know? The Ultra Wormhole is real... And Ultra Beasts are real, too! The world is just way too big... I bet we'll discover even more new things on the next island, too! We're gonna need all the energy we can get. Time to dig in!"
"You want a malasada?"
"Ahhh! So gooooooood! Shoot, I already ate the whole thing!"
Malie City
"Land ahoy! All right! Terra firma under foot again!"
"Ula'ula Island is, like, another totally different place than Melemele or Akala, huh!"
"I've got an idea, <player>! Let's have a battle!"
Regardless of choice: "I want my Pokémon to get a deep breath of this fresh new air! Don't worry. I'll make sure both our teams are in fighting form first."
  • Upon being defeated
"Bwah!! I had my breath held that whole battle!"
  • After being defeated
"Bwah! That battle took my breath away! I can't breathe the fresh air that way!"
"We're supposed to meet up with the professor, right? Where was it? Malie Garden?"
"Why'd he want us to go to a garden? Guess we'll find out when we get there, right?"
Malie Garden
"I heard that they serve tea somewhere here in Malie Garden... I'll start my search from the bridge here. Why don't you start around the edge of the garden?"
"Ho! Professor Kukui!"
Regardless of choice: "Professor! Professor, you gotta hear this! The Ultra Wormhole opened up, like, right in front of us, and there really are Ultra Beasts in there! You've gotta tell Professor Burnet, too!"
"You guys can go ahead without me, Professor. I've got a hot date with a malasada shop! Visiting every last one of them is my own personal island challenge, yeah?"
"Hey, <player>, did you know?"
Of course: "I haven't even finished the question yet."
"There's an observatory up on Mount Hokulani! And you do know what it is they do at an observatory, right? Hope you do, 'cause I sure as heck don't."
"Now I'm out!"
Tapu Village
"Phew... Look, <player>! Seems like we're almost to the Aether House, where the captain is supposed to be, huh?"
"Hey, look! Construction workers! That must be what Kukui was talking about! So they're really making a Pokémon League up on top of Mount Lanakila..."
"The professor told me that Pokémon Leagues in other regions have four crazy-strong Trainers in them that they call the Elite Four!"
"The Elite Four and our island kahunas... I wonder which ones are stronger! I can't wait to find out!"
Aether House
"Wait up, <player>! So, this is the Aether House, eh?"
"What? Why?!"
"Phew... So I won, yeah? Then why's this little fellow still gnawing on me?"
"Oh yeah, we met all right... In battle anyway. But... Hey, where's Lillie?"
"These ankle biters are starting to grow on me. I think I might hang out for a while. It's kinda soothing, you know?"
Route 15
"Ugh... Battles you can't afford to lose aren't any fun..."
Aether House
  • After Acerola's trial
"If we want to get the Pokémon back... then <player> has to go to Po Town... All alone? With no backup? That's what they said, but...that's not fair!"
"I-I'm sorry, <player>. It's my fault... Now you've got to put yourself in danger because...I couldn't stop them..."
"<Player>... I'm sorry! I...I can't even make myself smile right now..."
"That Plumeria lady came back as soon as Acerola had left..."
"I'm supposed to be a Trainer! But when it came down to it, Lillie had to protect me... Lillie, who's not even a Trainer to begin with!"
"Geh! You know who Lillie is?!"
  • If the player did not leave with Gladion
"<Player>... What should we do? Even if I go to the ferry terminal, too... What if I just get in you guys' way? What if I really am just this weak?"
Malie City
"<Player>!"
"I won't... If I'd been stronger, then Lillie wouldn't have... I'm ready to do whatever it takes so that we can take back our smiles and our fun adventure!"
"But where was Lillie taken? It couldn't be Po Town. <Player> was there the whole time."
"Aether Paradise?!"
Aether Paradise
B1F
"But... Why would Lillie be here at Aether Paradise?"
"Argh! This guy!"
"Fine. So what are we going to do?"
"You guess? And we're following this guy?! He doesn't have any plan!"
  • If talked to before using the elevator
"I don't get what is going on here... Why would the Aether Foundation be attacking anybody?!"
  • If talked to after attempting to use the elevator
"What were you doing there?"
1F
"Aue, look at you, <player>! And Faba is real strong, too!"
"Downstairs?! Oh yeah! Ms. Wicke did say there was another level farther down, didn't she... What do you do down there?!"
"Man, I'm like...stunned by so much of this..."
B2F
"Wow! It's like a secret hideout!"
"So where do we go now?"
"Why do you get the first one? And why do you know all this?"
"You didn't even answer my question... I know what it's gotta be. Nerves, eh? I reckon that you're more afraid to be here than either one of us, huh, Gladion?"
"Here, <player>. You take this."
"Lillie must be scared right now... Let's buckle down and do this!"
"Hey. Focus, people. Where're Lillie and Cosmog?"
"Come on, <player>! Let's split up and look around. Maybe we'll find some clue!"
"Come on, <player?! At least help me look around, would ya?"
"Wait... So Cosmog might be an Ultra Beast?"
"We should tell Gladion about this!"
"We learned a bit about Cosmog! Like, it might be an Ultra Beast or whatever... and if you stress it a lot, it can create Ultra Wormholes! Maybe to run away or something?"
"But we didn't find any sign of it down here."
"Gladion never really explains anything, eh? Probably thinks it makes him look cool..."
"Should we go after him? We all got into this together. Might as well see it to the end together!"
1F (after clearing B2F)
"<Player>..."
"What do we do?"
"Fine, fine. We can do that. But do you have to say "hmph" all the time?"
"Whoa! <Player>! Battle with me!"
"Phew! Thanks, <player> and <player's first Pokémon in party>! When you're fighting a battle you can't afford to lose, you really can't waver at all, huh..."
"What d'you mean "young master"?!"
"The president? That's Miss Lusamine, right? She's a really nice person, so I'm sure she'll listen to us if we explain everything."
"Again?!"
"So, uh, Mr. Faba, do you have the key to the president's rooms?"
"So...if you'd just stayed hidden, we would've been stuck here anyway, right?"
"Come on, <player>! Let's show 'em just what our Pokémon are capable of! For Lillie and for Cosmog, too!"
"I wanna help save Lillie, so I'm going ahead! You don't mind, right?!"
"Thanks for the key, Mr. Faba!"
Outside
"Whoa! There's, like, an uku billion Team Skull thugs in this place!"
"So the foundation really was working together with Team Skull?"
"This is, like, way too mind-blowing to think about right now. <Player>! Let's knock some skulls together for now!"
"Don't you do something that makes other people sad!"
Trophy room
"Whoa! <Player>!"
"Whoa-ho! And Lillie!"
"Man, I'm so glad to see you're OK!"
"What? Daughter? Son?"
"Wait! You all are a family?!"
1F (after battling Lusamine)
"Of course it is! After all, the beasts are real. I'm sure we can find it. We'll find the Legendary Pokémon!"
"Yeah, I'm beat!"
The next day, outside
"<Player>!"
"Hey, and it's Lillie...isn't it?! What happened to you?!"
"You look...fantastic!"
"I'm going to train even harder! I've gotta do more!"
"I keep getting saved by <player> and his/her Pokémon, don't I?"
"That's not enough. I've gotta be able to save Pokémon on my own! If I can't do that, I'll never be an island kahuna. I'll never be able to make people really smile!"
"And I still haven't even done Acerola's trial or anything. I've got a lot of catching up to do."
"Yeah... But we got to see things that almost no one would ever get the chance to see! Maybe if I set out to train harder, I'll get to see more amazing things like that again!"
"Guess I should wish you guys a good trip, huh? I'm gonna train up myself and my team real good before I see you again, <player>. Be ready for the shock of a lifetime!"
Mount Lanakila
"<Player>! Hold up for me!"
"So after we split up at Aether Paradise, I went and cleared all the rest of my trials, and then I even went back home to train with Ilima a bit. I was just thinking it was time to take on the Pokémon League... Then I heard from Gladion that you were already heading here, <player>! So I booked it here as fast as I could!"
"That was, like, the fastest I've ever moved in my life, you know!"
"But that's not what I came here to tell you!"
"<Player>! We're gonna decide which one of us'll be the first to the Pokémon League! You're gonna need to use your full force if you think you're gonna beat me and my team when we're serious about winning!"
  • Upon being defeated
"There may be no winning or losing before true full power!"

"Ooooh, and I really wanted my Pokémon to know how it feels to beat your team this time! But being seriously frustrated will only make me stronger!"
"So you'd better go and become Champion. 'Cause I'm gonna train so that next time I can come beat Champion <player>! Good luck, cuz, and here!"
"I'm really glad that the kid who moved here to Alola turned out to be you, <player>!"

"A-lo-la! The salty breeze sang to me and brought me here to you!"
"Oooh! And there's that Kantonian Meowth! Look at that shiny coin on your head, kitty-kitty!"
"I finally got my gramps to go all out and be serious in a battle against me! I got some sweet rewards, so take this one, <player>! Good luck is best shared!"
"Now you can power up, too, <player>!"
"Naw! No problem, auntie! Say. Is Kanto, like, really far way?"
Regardless of choice: "All right! Then it's decided! I'm gonna get stronger and stronger, and then I'm gonna travel the world with my Pokémon! I'm gonna go find Lillie! And my dad, too!"
"Oh, yeah, him. Heh... He's a strong Trainer—real strong, I think. But I guess he really hated being the son of a kahuna and everything, yeah? So he works far away from Alola these days."
"I think I'm gonna go train myself up at the Battle Tree, then beat you, <player>... and I'll be a Champion next time I see him! Seems like a nice little present, eh? Hehe!"
"Oh, it's this thing way deep on Poni Island! Anybody who has passed the island challenge—or who is strong enough to, anyway—can battle it out with their Pokémon! Or so they say."
"<Player>! Let's have the best ever battle at that Pokémon League sometime. No backing out!"
