Lana appears in Pokémon Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon as the Captain of the trial of Brooklet Hill. In her trial, Lana asks the player to investigate a series of phenomena in the hill's waters using their new Ride Pokémon, Lapras. At the end, they must defeat a powerful sea-going Totem Pokémon, a School Form WishiwashiSM/an AraquanidUSUM. She later appears near the end of Mallow's trial with Kiawe, providing supplies that prove necessary to lure in the Totem Lurantis.
After defeating OliviaSM/becoming ChampionUSUM, the player can visit Lana's twin sisters, Harper and Sarah, in her home in Konikoni City, who ask to play with them by battling them in a Double Battle. After defeating them, Lana arrives, and is goaded into battling the player by her siblings.

She will give the player a Blue Petal as a part of the trial, although the player must defeat herUM/MallowUS first.

Lana briefly appeared in GOTCHA!.
In the manga
Lana debuted in the Going Ashore and Neighboring Akala Island. She, Mallow, and Kiawe traveled to Heahea City to meet Sun, a boy approved to take part in the island challenge. Curious about whether or not Sun was worthy enough to do the island challenge, Kiawe challenged him to a short battle. Though the match ended without a winner, Kiawe bonded with Sun and accepted him as a trialgoer. Lana was still reluctant and told the others to follow her to Brooklet Hill.
In True Identity and the Totem Pokémon of Brooklet Hill, Lana gave Sun the task of defeating the Totem Pokémon causing havoc at Brooklet Hill. Later, Lana watched Sun battled the totem, a School Form Wishiwashi. Due to having befriended Wishiwashi earlier, Sun was reluctant to fight it. This angered Lana, who compared it to herself and pointed out that despite appearances, Wishiwashi was strong and didn't need to be protected. Listening to Lana's advice, Sun stopped holding back and defeated the totem, successfully completing his first trial.
In Homecoming and the Brilliant Professional Golfer, Lana and Sun were informed by Mallow that Kiawe had been attacked by Gladion. Lana, Sun, Moon, and Mallow went to Memorial Hill, where they found an injured Kiawe. When a group of Team Skull Grunts appeared, Lana and Mallow stayed behind to battle them while the others went to protect Tapu Lele from Gladion. After the Grunts were defeated, Lana and Mallow reunited with the others after they successfully helped Tapu Lele.
In Flash and Cosmog's Secret, Lana and the others met at Mallow's family restaurant, where they talked to Professor Kukui's wife, Professor Burnet, over a video phone. After suspecting Team Skull may be related to the Ultra Wormholes appearing around Alola, Lana suggested infiltrating Team Skull's base in Po Town to get answers. Mallow and Kiawe reluctantly agreed, but the former suggested asking Ilima and Acerola to help them.
In A Raid and Po Town, Lana, Kiawe, Mallow, Acerola, Ilima, and Hau arrived at Po Town. Their presence alerted Team Skull's boss, Guzma, who demanded to know why his base was being invaded. When the Captains revealed they only wanted to talk, Guzma agreed on the condition they made it to him first. He then summoned a Pheromosa, Celesteela, and Guzzlord and had them attack the Captains and Hau. Despite their best efforts, Lana and the others were completely outmatched by the rampaging beasts.
In Confusion and Monsters from Another World, Sun arrived at Po Town, only to get caught up in the commotion. Annoyed the Captains were still fighting, Guzma revealed a Cosmog and had it open more wormholes. Gladion appeared, demanding to know where Guzma got the Cosmog and Ultra Beasts from. Revealing his true aim is to destroy Ultra Beasts, Gladion battled the beasts Guzma summoned with his Type: Null. To everyone's shock, Gladion also revealed the Aether Foundation's president, Lusamine, was the one who gave Guzma Cosmog as part of her plan to create a paradise filled with nothing but Ultra Beasts and herself. Eventually, the beasts broke out of Po Town's barrier, allowing them to wreak havoc on all of Ula'ula Island. Lana and the other Captains headed off to various locations to evacuate any innocent civilians caught in the beasts' attacks.
In Adventure in the Dark Dimension, the Trial Captains and Island Kahunas were revealed to have spent six months on Exeggutor Island training to prepare for another clash with the Ultra Beasts. After their training was finished, Sophocles and Molayne took everyone to Mount Lanakila, where a wormhole had opened up earlier. Shortly after they arrived, their ship was attacked by a group of Aether Foundation Employees and their Ultra Beasts. With the Z-Moves they had acquired, Lana and the others managed to defeat the Ultra Beasts.
Normally, Lana is very shy and timid, but she takes on a more serious and violent persona when in battle. Kiawe refers to this transformation as Lana's (Japanese: バトルモード battle mode). According to Lana, this personality shift actually scares her younger sisters.
|Araquanid is Lana's only known Pokémon. It was first used to travel to Konikoni City so that Lana and Sun could rescue Kiawe from being attacked. After discovering the assailants were Team Skull Grunts, Lana used Araquanid to battle them. Later, it was used to battle the Pheromosa Guzma used at Po Town, but was defeated. Later, it fought an Aether Foundation Employee's Blacephalon and won with the help of a Z-Move.
Araquanid's only known move is Bug Bite*.
