The Pokémon Ping-Pong tournament
The setting for the competition
The Pokémon Ping-Pong tournament (Japanese: ポケピンポン大会 Poké Ping-Pong tournament) is an anime-exclusive competition that is held annually on Melemele Island and serves to decide the Pokémon Ping-Pong champion of Alola. It was featured in Smashing with Sketch!.
In the past, Ilima had taken part in a tournament, only to lose to Ikari. This caused a fierce rivalry between them ever since.
In the present, Ilima entered into the competition again. He found himself going up against Ikari in the finals, but he succeeded in winning the competition with his Smeargle.
