Guardian of Alola (move)
|Guardian of Alola|
ガーディアン・デ・アローラ Guardian de Alola
Guardian of Alola (Japanese: ガーディアン・デ・アローラ Guardian de Alola) is a damage-dealing Fairy-type Z-Move introduced in Generation VII. It is the exclusive Z-Move of the guardian deities and an upgraded version of their signature move, Nature's Madness.
Guardian of Alola deals damage equal to 75% of the target's remaining HP (rounded down, but no less than 1).
Like all Z-Moves, Guardian of Alola deals one-quarter of its normal damage (18.75% in this case) if the target is protected by a protection move.
Generation VIII onwards
Guardian of Alola cannot be selected in a battle.
Any guardian deity Pokémon, or a Pokémon transformed into one, can use Guardian of Alola if it knows Nature's Madness, holds Tapunium Z, and if its Trainer wears a Z-RingSM or Z-Power RingUSUM.

|Tapu Koko||Tapu Koko strikes a series of synchronized poses with its Trainer to build Z-Power. It then becomes surrounded by an orb of yellow energy and summons a giant, yellow, headless, humanoid energy-based entity from the ground before closing its shell to merge on top of the entity as its head. The entity then punches the opponent with one of its fists.|
