History

Reason: SM003 to SM006.

Sophocles made his first appearance in Alola to New Adventure, where he, Mallow and Lana accidentally trampled Ash on his first visit to Samson Oak's Pokémon School. He later watched along with the rest of the class as Ash fought a group of Team Skull Grunts alongside Kiawe. Shortly after the battle, Ash claimed to see the guardian deity Tapu Koko in the sky, but neither Sophocles nor the rest of the class could see the guardian.

In The Guardian's Challenge, Sophocles was surprised to see Ash with a Z-Ring, which Ash claimed to be a gift from Tapu Koko. The next day, Sophocles participated in Ash's surprise welcome party to the school by challenging him to a balloon-popping contest. Sophocles won the challenge with ease by bursting the balloons on Togedemaru's spikes, and then using her Lightning Rod Ability to absorb Pikachu's electricity to charge her attacks. During a lunch break, he and the others witnessed Tapu Koko challenge Ash and Pikachu to a battle to test their ability using Z-Moves. After Ash decided to participate in the island challenges to replace his shattered Electrium Z, Sophocles gladly offered to teach him and Pikachu new techniques.
