Kiawe's grandfather

Kiawe's grandfather is a recurring character who appeared in the Pokémon anime. He was an Island Kahuna of Akala Island and Olivia's immediate predecessor.

History

Kiawe's grandfather debuted in a flashback in Young Kiawe Had a Farm!, where Kiawe explained that his grandfather was his inspiration to become a Fire-type Trainer.

He was mentioned in A Shivering Shovel Search!, where Kiawe told Ash that his grandfather used to warn him about lone shovels on the beach, as they could belong to Sandygast.

He reappeared in a flashback in A Crowning Moment of Truth!, where he hosted a past Wela Fire Festival on Akala Island, where Trainers get their Pokémon to wear the Wela Crown (Japanese ヴェラの冠 Crown of Wela).

In The Young Flame Strikes Back!, Kiawe mentioned that his grandfather was once the protector of Kiawe's family's Paniola Ranch.

In That's Some Spicy Island Research!, Kiawe mentioned that Hapu's late grandfather Sofu was best friends with his own grandfather.

Kiawe's grandfather reappeared in a flashback in Run, Heroes, Run!. As Kiawe and Charizard were diving towards the ground, Kiawe remembered what his grandfather had taught him. He later reappeared as an apparition created by Tapu Fini alongside Sofu before fading away.

Character

Kiawe's grandfather's wisdom and talents directly influenced Kiawe's desire to become a formidable Fire-type Trainer in his own right. Following his passing, Kiawe inherited Charizard and took on the Akala grand trial to earn his grandfather's Z-Ring. He had an immense respect for the power and grace of Wela Volcano, also instilled in Kiawe. Kiawe's grandfather took great pride in his ceremonial role as Akala's Island Kahuna and hosting the Wela Fire Festival.
