Poni Island (Japanese: ポニじま Poni Island) is the southwestern of the four major islands of Alola. Tapu Fini is the island's guardian deity.

Trials

Poni Island has one Captain, Mina, for the island challenge, but in Pokémon Sun and Moon, she has not decided on an official trial location or format, and thus does not conduct a trial when first met. The player does, however, encounter an ancient trial in the depths of Vast Poni Canyon, where they meet the present-day captain. At the end, they battle a Totem Kommo-o and its allies for ownership of a Dragonium Z.

Mina's trial is exclusive to Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.

Hapu was recently appointed as its Island Kahuna, and is in charge of its grand trial.

Poni Island's trials are unique in that its Grand Trial is initiated first before its other trials, and it is the only island to have an unmanned trial.
