Kiawe (Japanese: カキ Kaki) is the Trial Captain of Akala Island's Wela Volcano Park. He specializes in Fire-type Pokémon.

In the games

Kiawe appears in Pokémon Sun and Moon as a Trial Captain who provides guidance to trial-goers. Together with his Marowak, he studies the traditional dances of the Alola region. He says that his trials are different from the others and test the player's observation. In Kiawe's trial, he asks the player to identify the difference between two dances. He gave a man living in Mallow's restaurant a Magmar, to encourage him to become a real iron chef.

In Pokémon Sun, after defeating Olivia, the player can find Kiawe in his room at Paniola Town during the night. Upon speaking with him, he will immediately leave for the Thrifty Megamart at the Royal Avenue. Once the player arrives, Kiawe will be seen briefly speaking with his boss before requesting for a battle with the player. After his defeat, he states that he had just been fired from his part-time job, and he mentions his wish to travel to another region to further his studies for dancing. Shortly after telling his story, he will award the player the Reverent battle style. He can later be encountered again at the Battle Tree as a possible opponent or Multi Battle partner.

"You were on fire during that battle. I hope you bring that fire with you and burn up my trial."
"The name's Kiawe, the Fire captain. You can get to Wela Volcano Park from Route 7. I'll be waiting on the peak. If you plan to see your island challenge through to the end, climb to the top with your strongest team!"
Wela Volcano Park
"I am Kiawe. My Marowak and I are students of the ancient dances that have been passed down in Alola for generations."
"The trial of Kiawe... You will find that it is a bit different than the trials you have faced to this point, but of course, you will attempt it, right?"
Not right now:
Of course!: "My trial will test your powers of observation! There will be a dance...and then another. Your task will be to find the difference between the two. Begin!"
"Watch carefully and memorize this dance."
"What was different from the previous dance?"
Show me again!: Both of the dances will play again.
The left/right Marowak: "Astounding! It is astounding how wrong you are! Come, Marowak!"
  • After defeating the Marowak (wrong answers)
"When you answer incorrectly, my Marowak grow so enraged that they cannot help but attack. Watch once more, carefully this time!"
The middle Marowak: "B-but how?! That was truly spectacular! And to add to the spectacle... Come, Marowak!"
  • After defeating the Marowak (correct answer)
"Marowak was so pleased by your right answer that it simply had to battle you!"
"Onward to the second dance!"
"Watch carefully and memorize this dance."
"What was different from the previous dance?"
Show me again!: Both of the dances will play again.

Regardless of the remaining choices: "B-but how?! That was truly spectacular! And to add to the spectacle... Come, Totem Pokémon!"
  • After defeating Totem Salazzle
"Whoa! S-spectacular! With your keen observations, you were able to see even fine differences in our dances! And you defeated the Totem Pokémon with such ease!"
"The Totem Pokémon was carrying a Firium Z. It is yours now."
"This is how you use the Fire-type Z-Power!"
"Thank you, my dear Marowak!"
"For when you meet a Pokémon that you would like to make your companion, take these!"
"What's more! You may now use the Ride Pokémon Charizard. Charizard will lend you his strength, and you will be able to go anywhere you have been in an instant."
"The Firium Z...you should show it to the Trial Guide outside the captain's barricade at the bottom of the mountain. It is time for us to return to our dance. The feelings of the Alolan people and our Pokémon, and the true nature of Z-Power... The answers lie in our dance! And so we must dance on!"

"Sorry to keep you waiting."
"I've brought a Thick Club and a Rare Bone."
"Here you are."
"Yes, even back at Wela Volcano Park my vaunted Salazzle didn't stand a chance."

"Uhhn!"
"S-SPICY!!!"
Paniola TownS
"Yah! Hoo! Hee! Hyah!"
"Huhn?"
"Oh. It's you, <player>."
What are you doing?: "This is my fire dance training."
What was that all about?: "This is my torch staff. When I'm actually performing fire dances, I'll light it on fire."
"Whenever I have free time, I practice my dance as much as I can. It takes a lot of repetition to get good at it...just like Pokémon battles."
"Oh, look at the time!"
"Sorry, I know you just got here, but I have to go to the Thrifty Megamart. If you need to talk to me, come meet me there."
Royal AvenueS
"I see..."
"It's all right. I know how hard you've worked to open this location after the guardian deity destroyed the previous one in anger. I understand, boss."
"Thank you very much."
"It's OK, boss. You can head back in now."
"How could this happen...?"
"Oh, it's you, <player>."
"If you don't mind, I'd like to battle you, <player>."
Just a minute: "I see... I'll be waiting for you here, then."
Of course: "I don't feel like dancing by myself right now..."
  • Upon being defeated
"...I can't beat you if I keep my troubles to myself."
  • After being defeated
"So strong... I should've known. You did clear my trial, after all. By the way, did you overhear what we were just talking about?"
What are you talking about?: "You're too considerate, <player>."
Yeah, kind of...: "<Player>. Yes, of course you did..."
"My dream is to become a professional fire dancer. I've been saving up forever to go study dance abroad. But I was just laid off from my part-time job. It seems like nothing ever goes right..."
"Sorry. I didn't mean to trouble you with my problems, <player>. You're so easy to talk to, though. I feel much better after talking with you. Thank you for being there. I'll be going then. Until we meet again, <player>!"

Kiawe debuted in Alola to New Adventure!. He is a student at the Pokémon School of Melemele Island and one of Ash's classmates. He owns a Z-Ring and is very gruff compared to his classmates. Besides attending school, he provides a helping hand at his family's farm, making deliveries between islands with his Charizard.

Kiawe in Pokémon Adventures

Kiawe debuts in the Sun & Moon chapter. He, Mallow, and Lana travel to Heahea City to meet with Sun, who had been approved to take part in the island challenge. The three were initially reluctant if Sun was worthy enough to take place in the island challenge and decided to battle Sun to test him. Kiawe initially held the advantage in the battle, but got distracted when Sun's words during the battle made Kiawe realize he forgot to tell his boss at the Thrifty Megamart that he was leaving work early. Lana revealed to everyone that Kiawe aims to save up money to study fire dancing abroad. Sun and Kiawe quickly get along after this, as Sun also aims to save up money for a goal. As thanks for preventing him from getting fired, Kiawe decides to accept Sun as a trialgoer.

Despite this, Lana is still reluctant and tells everyone to follow her to Brooklet Hill. The group travels to Route 5, where Lana reveals that she wants Sun to defeat the Totem Pokémon that is causing havoc at Brooklet Hill. While Sun and Lana go off to do the trial, Kiawe heads off to his job at the Thrifty Megamart. As he leaves, Kiawe suggests that Sun stop by the Megamart to meet with his manager for a job offer.

Later, Kiawe is attacked by someone around Memorial Hill. After hearing about the situation from a phone call, Mallow takes Moon, Sun, and Lana to the area, where they find an injured Kiawe lying on the ground, defeated. A group of Team Skull Grunts appear and claim that they were the ones who attacked Kiawe. Angered by this, Lana and Mallow send out their Pokémon to battle the Grunts and tell Sun and Moon to tend to Kiawe's wounds. Kiawe reveals that the Grunts weren't the ones who defeated him and it was actually a far more powerful Trainer. Kiawe tells Sun that he had been thinking about the attack Sun's En used at the Iki Town festival and pulls out a Firium Z from En's fur to reveal that it was the source of the attack.

Lana and Mallow stay behind while Sun takes Moon and Kiawe to the Ruins of Life in order to check up on Tapu Lele. After Kiawe's injuries are healed by Moon, Kiawe tells Sun about Z-Moves and how to use them. With practice, Sun masters the pose for Inferno Overdrive, which Kiawe says will be needed to face the person who attacked him. Due to not possessing a Z-Ring, Kiawe decided to lend his Z-Ring, which he received from Tapu Lele five years ago.

Shortly after, they are attacked by Gladion, who managed to easily kidnap Tapu Lele. Kiawe throws his Z-Ring over to Sun so he can use it, but Gladion's Type: Null destroys it. Although Gladion claims that Sun wouldn't have won even with the Z-Move, a voice appears and points out that if Gladion truly believed that, he wouldn't have destroyed Kiawe's Z-Ring. The voice is revealed to be Kahili, who uses her Pokémon to attack Type: Null before delivering Sun a Z-Ring created by Hala. Sun puts on the Z-Ring and prepares to use it to defeat Gladion.
