Route 10

Route 10

Route 10 is a simple, grassy path that leads from Malie City to Mount Hokulani. Travel up the mountainside is difficult on foot, so visitors must take the Exeggutor Express from the bus stop on the north side.


Stufful's Adventure

Speak to the elderly woman outside Malie City. Recognizing you as a trial-goer, she asks for a favor. Her eight Stufful have not been getting much exercise lately so she let them out of their Poké Balls to play. They haven't returned yet, and as it is difficult for her to move around, she asks that you find them and send them back to her. Once they have all been located, speak to her again to receive a Never-Melt Ice and PokémonDollar.png15,000 as thanks.

VS Team Skull

Continue to the north end of the route to reach the bus stop sign, which is in the process of being stolen by a pair of Team Skull Grunts. Defeat one after the other to chase them off, then Professor Kukui appears. He mentions wishing that Team Skull would challenge "the League" instead of causing trouble, but refuses to go into more detail, saying that you will find out soon enough. Back to the matter at hand, Kukui explains that you will need to take the bus to reach the top of Mount Hokulani. Inspect the sign to wait for the next bus, and the Exeggutor Express arrives a moment later.

Mount Hokulani

Mount Hokulani

Mount Hokulani is the second-tallest mountain in Alola. The Exeggutor Express takes passengers to the summit, dropping them off outside the Hokulani Observatory.


Catch Up with Kukui

When you step off the bus, Kukui calls to you from across the parking lot. He informs you that Mount Hokulani is only the second-tallest mountain in Alola, and directs your attention to another mountain peak visible through the mist. This icy mountain with construction equipment on its summit is Mount Lanakila, the highest peak in Alola. It is a sacred place, the closest point that anyone can get to the legendary Pokémon, said to be the sunS / moonM incarnate. It is on this hallowed ground that Kukui has been working to establish Alola's own Pokémon League. He intends to have everyone who has completed their island challenges battle against the kahunas to become the island challenge champion. Then these Champions can show the world what is so special about Alolan Pokémon and their Trainers!

Hokulani Summit

When you approach the observatory, Kukui greets the man standing outside, who refers to the professor as "Royal". Kukui introduces the man as Molayne, the person in charge of the observatory and the one who maintains the PC Storage System. Although he is no longer Hokulani's captain, he challenges you to a battle to determine if you are qualified to take on the current trial. He specializes in Steel-type Pokémon, so Fire-, Fighting-, and Ground-type moves will work the best.




When the battle is over, Kukui leaves for Malie Garden to find Hau and Molayne welcomes you to the observatory.

Hokulani Observatory

Hokulani Observatory

Hokulani Observatory is a celestial research center that, with the help of Pokémon like Charjabug and Togedemaru, views and studies distant planets and galaxies.


Captain Sophocles' Trial

To begin the trial, pass through the door behind the reception desk and enter the Captain's Gate in the hallway beyond. Inside you meet Sophocles, the inventor of the Festival Plaza. He says that since every trial boils down to summoning the Totem Pokémon and proving your strength to it, his trial skips straight to this part. He explains that the observatory uses technology to monitor sounds, inaudible to people, detected from outer space. Pokémon can hear these sounds just fine, and Sophocles has built a device that uses this tech to summon the Totem Pokémon. He informs you that using other sounds, Molayne was able to develop a security system for the building, and then activates the "Ping Totem Pokémon 2.0". The power suddenly goes out and Sophocles wonders if a fuse blew. With the electronic door stuck shut behind you, he explains that you will need to pass an audio quiz to deactivate the security system.

Sophocles will play an audio clip of a familiar sound. After identifying the source of each sound, the door briefly opens and shuts, letting in a Pokémon attracted by the device's sounds. Defeat these wayward Pokémon to progress to the next question. After answering the fourth question, the Totem Pokémon appears.

Correct answers are listed in bold.

VS Totem Vikavolt

When the battle begins, the Totem Vikavolt is surrounded by an aura that raises every stat by one stage. As in other trials, it is recommended to focus on the Totem Pokémon first and any allies afterward. The Bug/Electric Pokémon has the Levitate Ability, which protects it from Ground attacks. Use Fire-, and Rock-type attacks for best results. Torracat can deal serious damage with Firium Z and Inferno Overdrive. Rock Pokémon, like Minior which can be found on Mount Hokulani, are also useful here.

After the Totem Pokémon and its allies are defeated, power to the observatory is restored. Molayne enters and congratulates Sophocles on his successful experiment. Sophocles rewards you with the Electrium Z and teaches you the pose for Gigavolt Havoc. Molayne congratulates you on clearing the trial and gives you the Steelium Z. He then asks for a favor: return the Professor's Mask that Kukui left behind. He tells you that the professor should be headed back to Malie Garden, so summon Charizard and fly back to the city.
