From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Ulu (Japanese: ウル ʻUlu) is a recurring character who appeared in the Pokémon anime. He is the older brother of Mallow and the son of Abe and his wife.
In the anime
Ulu debuted in a flashback in A Seasoned Search!, where it was revealed that he is currently traveling around the world to become a better chef with his Lickitung. During his journey, he discovered an old recipe describing how to make Alolan Stew and sent it to Mallow.
Ulu physically debuted in Sours for the Sweet!, in order to participate in the Alola Bread Festival. Abe had injured his back when he arrived, so Ulu assisted Mallow in helping Aina's Kitchen take part in the festival. He met Ash and Lillie. He had a crush on Nina, only to be indirectly rejected when he realized she had a fiancé. He eventually left to continue his journey.
In SM128, Ulu was providing catering at the Manalo Conference when he reunited with Mallow. Upon learning that Mallow was going to compete in the Alola League, Ulu promised to close his shop and cheer her on whenever she battles.
In SM130, Ulu was shown rushing to the Manalo Stadium in order to watch Mallow's battle against Lana.
