Hokulani Observatory (Japanese: ホクラニ天文台 Hōkūlani Observatory) is a location on Ula'ula Island in Alola, located on the summit of Mount Hokulani. It is the location of the trial of Sophocles. Molayne is the head of the observatory.

Trial

Pokémon Sun and Moon

The trial begins once the player steps forward after walking through the trial gate. The player does not have the option to exit the trial part-way through. If the player loses the battle against the Totem Pokémon, when they attempt the trial again it will start at the final security question.

In this trial, Sophocles uses his invention called the "Ping Totem Pokémon 2.0" to broadcast sounds audible only to Pokémon to lure the Totem Pokémon. Sophocles activates it, causing a fuse to blow, and the trial proper to begin.

Sophocles asks the player to open the security door, but in order to do so they have to complete a series of audio quizzes. If the player gets an answer incorrect, Sophocles receives an electric shock and the player is asked the question again (there is no other penalty). After completing each quiz, the player battles a Pokémon, with the player battling the Totem Vikavolt after the last quiz.

In the battle with Totem Vikavolt, it will call the Charjabug that knows Vice Grip on its first turn, and call the Charjabug that knows Spark if its HP is below approximately 2/3 (if the first ally Charjabug has been defeated). If its HP drops below approximately 2/3 before it has a chance to call an ally, it will call the Charjabug that knows Spark first, then call the Charjabug that knows Vice Grip at the first opportunity after the first Charjabug has fainted. Once an ally is defeated, Totem Vikavolt cannot call it again.

After defeating the Totem Pokémon, the power is restored to the observatory and Molayne bursts into the room. Sophocles gives the player an Electrium Z as a reward, and Molayne gives the player a Steelium Z.

The trial begins as soon as the player walks through the trial gates; however, they can leave at any time, although this will reset the trial.

In the battle with Totem Togedemaru, it will call Skarmory on its first turn, and call Dedenne if its HP is below approximately 2/3 (if the ally Skarmory has been defeated). If its HP drops below approximately 2/3 before it has a chance to call an ally, it will call Dedenne first, then call Skarmory at the first opportunity after Dedenne has fainted. Once an ally is defeated, Totem Togedemaru cannot call it again.

After defeating the Totem Pokémon, Sophocles gives the player an Electrium Z as a reward.

In the anime

Hokulani Observatory in the anime

The Hokulani Observatory first appeared in a picture shown by Sophocles in Love at First Twirl! during a class report. It is run by Sophocles's cousin Molayne.

The observatory made its physical debut in SM079, where Ash, his classmates, and Professor Kukui traveled there to meet Molayne and to witness multiple Minior falling from the sky as shooting stars. During their stay, Ash's Poipole bonded with one Minior, but was left heartbroken when it disappeared later.

In the manga

Hokulani Observatory in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Hokulani Observatory first appeared in the Sun & Moon chapter. A group of Ultra Beasts were summoned from their homeworlds at Po Town but eventually broke free, allowing them to cause havoc and destruction on the various locations on Ula'ula Island. Sophocles and Molayne used the observatory as a shelter to house any innocent civilians that were caught up in the chaos caused by the rampaging beasts. Due to the possibility that the observatory could also be attacked eventually, Sophocles decided to use an invention designed to lure Totem Pokémon to guide the Ultra Beasts away.

Trivia

  • In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, the Magnemite in the far left end of the corridor speaks in morse code, saying "Boop-bee boop-bee-boop-boop bee-bee-bee boop-bee-boop-boop boop-beeeeee!" If every "boop" is considered as a dot, and every "bee" is considered as a dash, this translates to "ALOLA!"
