Interview and concept art

The 13 page foreword begins with an interview with Junichi Masuda and Shigeru Ohmori. They discuss Ohmori taking over the role of director for the series, Masuda becoming a producer, and what inspirations led to the creation of the Alola region. It is followed by concept artwork for the Alolan first partner Pokémon, Mimikyu, Alolan Raichu, Alolan Exeggutor, Solgaleo, Lunala, and the four guardian deities.

Alola Region Pokédex

The majority of the guide is dedicated to the Pokédex. Each Pokémon's section of the Pokédex includes basic species information (type, Abilities, Pokédex numbers, Egg Groups, height, weight, evolution family, and gender differences), Pokédex entries, type matchups, potential wild held items, possible moves, and some ways to obtain the Pokémon. Moves are separated by the method of learning them and Z-Moves exclusive to the species are included. Mega Evolved Pokémon are grouped together at the end of the section. Small articles detailing things such as Minior's different core colors and Spinda's spots are interspersed throughout the section.

How to Complete the Alola Pokédex

This section details methods of catching and evolving the Pokémon of the Alola region. Two full pages are given to explaining Zygarde's unique obtainment method and the locations of its Cells and Cores. Finally is a table of Pokémon grouped by Egg Group, which includes Pokémon outside of the Alola Pokédex.

Champion's Guide to Alola

The guide to the post-game begins on page 247. Activities available once the player becomes Champion are separated by island, followed by maps of the areas on Poni Island that have been unlocked. The meeting with Looker and hunt for the Ultra Beasts are detailed next, along with the final encounter with Necrozma. Defending the player's Champion title, an explanation of the Battle Tree, and a list of daily activities mark the end of the section.

Adventure Data

Lists of moves, Abilities, items, EV yields, and wild held items make up the final chunk of the guide. Reverse lookups for moves and Abilities follow, directly before a type chart.
