- Pokémon League
- Upon entering the Sky Chamber
- "So, here you are... Why don't we see who the winds favor today, you...or me?"
- First battle
- "My name is Kahili. A few years ago, I was a champion of the island challenge, too. Just like you. I've been traveling the world to improve my skill as both a Trainer and as a golfer. When I heard that they'd made a Pokémon League in my own home region, I came flying back to serve Alola. Have a look at my fantastic Flying-type team!"
- "It's frustrating to me as a member of the Elite Four, but it seems your strength is the real deal."
- "You know...I think you'll bring a breath of fresh air to the Alola battle scene. I was honestly annoyed when Kukui kept pestering me to come here, but I'm glad I did."
- Upon entering the Hall of Fame for the first time
- "Now we're all going to be aiming for your seat. I hope you're ready for some rivals."
- Rematch battle
- "So, you came to battle me again! If I beat you, the number one ranked Trainer in Alola, then I'll be ready to take on the world! I'm coming for you, <player>!"
- "This feeling of frustration that is swelling within me... I will use it to propel my growth!"
- "That battle was worthy of being number one in Alola... Maybe even number one in the world! But next time, I'll win. You'll see!"
- "There are three more members of the Elite Four. And every one of them is a top-class Trainer."
- "There are two more members of the Elite Four... And I wouldn't be surprised if you have a hard time deciding which one to take on next."
- "There is just one member of the Elite Four left. I hope you enjoy the transcendent kind of battle you only find at the top of the Pokémon League!"
- "Do you wonder what lies beyond the Elite Four? Go. See with your own eyes what awaits you."
- Hano Grand Resort
- "<Player>? What are you doing at my place?"
- Regardless of choice: "Oh, my dad owns the Hano Grand Resort, so..."
- "Anyway. You're the Champion now, right? So are you out there training every day?"
- Of course!: "Just what I would expect of a Champion! That is very wise thinking. I'm a top-ranking player in the golf world, and that is because I still practice every day."
- Uhhh...what?: "You're the Champion, aren't you? I'm a top-ranking player in the golf world, and that is because I still practice every day!"
- "I think it's important to keep training every day, even if it's for just a bit. I'll give you this. It should help you aim for even loftier goals!"
- "Many Flying-type Pokémon are fast, right? That's why I use Trick Room to up my handicap. It forces me to train in battles where the slower Pokémon get to move first."
- "I should get going, though. I've got to get back to my daily training regimen. Ten more hours to go today."

Kahili in Pokémon Adventures
Kahili debuts in the Sun & Moon chapter. She was first mentioned in PASM03 by Hala, who planned to call Kahili back to Alola so that she may assist in trying to calm the guardian deities, who had been angered by something.
After Kahili arrives in Alola, she travels to Iki Town, where she visits Hala at his home and informs him that Tapu Lele had been spotted around Akala.
- Kahili is the only member of the Alola Elite Four who isn't encountered at any time prior to her appearance in the Elite Four.
- Furthermore, Kahili is the only member of the Alola Elite Four who doesn't distribute the Z-Crystal of her type specialty.
- Kahili being both a golfer and a Flying-type user may be a reference to the scoring system in golf, in which the terms birdie, eagle, albatross, and condor can describe how well a player has performed.
- Kahili's golf club has colors based on the appearance of Toucannon.
