Several wild Pokémon had a recurring role in the Pokémon anime.

Contents

Original series

Fearow

Fearow
Main article: Ash's Fearow

Fearow debuted in the first episode of the anime, where it appeared as a Spearow. It attacked Ash and Pikachu after Ash threw a rock at it. Its second and final appearance was in Pallet Party Panic, where it was shown to have evolved into a Fearow. It battled against Ash's Pidgeotto, who soon evolved into a Pidgeot. Ash attempted to capture the Fearow while riding on Pidgeot's back. Despite its weakened state, he was still unable to capture it, and he left Pidgeot behind to guard against any future attacks. This Fearow was seen in a flashback in Fighting Flyer with Fire.

Ho-Oh

Ho-Oh
Main article: Ho-Oh (anime)

Ho-Oh is the second recurring wild Pokémon in the anime, making three appearances.

After Ash and Pikachu were exhausted from fighting a flock of Spearow, Ash saw a glimpse of Ho-Oh flying over a rainbow. The Pokédex couldn't record the data of Ho-Oh, as it was unknown at the time. Since then, it would often fly around.

Haunter

Haunter
Main article: Sabrina's Haunter

Haunter first appeared in The Tower of Terror. After Ash befriended it, he attempted to use it to battle Sabrina, but Haunter decided to goof off. At the end of Haunter Versus Kadabra, Haunter decided to stay with Sabrina.

Jigglypuff

Jigglypuff
Main article: Jigglypuff (anime)

The fourth recurring wild Pokémon in the anime, and the one that made the most appearances, is Jigglypuff.

Jigglypuff's first appearance was in The Song of Jigglypuff. At first it couldn't sing, but that changed once Brock gave it a piece of fruit which soothed its throat. Jigglypuff followed the gang throughout their journey until the Advanced Generation series, and returned after a long absence in the Sun & Moon series.

Jigglypuff is perhaps best known, however, for its running gag. Whenever it saw that its song put its listeners to sleep, it would inflate angrily, making a distinctive "honk" sound, then doodle over the faces of its audience with its marker.

Slowking

Slowking
Main article: Slowking (M02)

This talking Slowking lived on Shamouti Island, and was the guardian of the shrine located there. He gave Ash advice on where to find the Ice Sphere. He later praised the Team Rocket trio, upset that no one saw them being heroes, telling them that their heroic actions did not go unnoticed.

Slowking reappeared in Slowking's Day.

Voice actor Japanese English
As Suicune Masahiko Tanaka

Suicune first appeared in Don't Touch That 'dile as a form of energy. When Ash, Misty and Brock were lost in a forest, Togepi and Pikachu sensed something and led the trio to a lake. Suicune was standing on a small island in the lake. At first, Ash did not understand what Pokémon it was and wanted to capture it. However, Suicune ran away towards the direction of New Bark Town as soon as Ash made an attempt to battle it. Ash and group chased it to New Bark from where they began their Johto adventure.

Suicune appeared once again in For Ho-Oh the Bells Toll!. After Team Rocket had removed a Crystal Bell from Ecruteak's Tin Tower, many Bug-type Pokémon invaded the city. They wrapped Jessie, James and Meowth in a web by using String Shot and blocked off the entry to the Tin Tower. The bugs even attacked Ash, Misty, Brock, Morty and Eusine when they wanted to go to the Tin Tower. Suicune appeared, calming down the Pokémon and freeing the Rocket trio as well as the city from the webs of the bugs. Eusine wanted to capture Suicune and sent out his Alakazam to battle it. Alakazam used a Disable, but Suicune easily blocked it with a Mirror Coat. It then used Roar to send Alakazam back into its Poké Ball and fled from the area before Eusine could even react.

Personality and characteristics

Suicune was a calm Pokémon; it didn't get angry at anyone who tried to battle or capture it.

Pichu Posse

Pichu Brothers
Pichu Brothers and friends
Main article: Pichu Brothers

The Pichu Brothers were first introduced in Pikachu & Pichu, where they met Ash's Pikachu. Pikachu was lost after falling off a nearby building, in which Ash was planning a party celebrating the anniversary of when he and Pikachu first met. Pikachu and the Pichu Brothers went all throughout the town chased by a Houndour who eventually helped them when the local Pokémon Playhouse was collapsing.

They also have a number of friends living in Big Town that regularly take part in their adventures. They have all made appearances in various side story episodes, as well as a cameo at the beginning of Giratina and the Sky Warrior, and the gang have also received their own game for the Pokémon mini, Pichu Bros. mini.

Lugia
Debuts in Around the Whirlpool

Lugia

Voice actor Japanese English
As Lugia  ???  ???

Lugia first appeared in Around the Whirlpool as a silhouette swimming underwater. Ash, his friends and their Pokémon saw it as they were being dragged into a whirlpool, following another mishap involving Team Rocket. The whirlpool suddenly disappeared, after which Lugia's silhouette passed by, all the while calling out. It then reappeared in flashbacks in Mantine Overboard! and Hi Ho Silver... Away!.

In The Mystery is History, it appeared when Oliver, Ash, and his friends were playing with the child Lugia, Silver. Lugia and Silver played with the group underwater.

In A Parent Trapped!, Lugia looked for the child after it was told that it was kidnapped by some members of Team Rocket. Lugia became enraged after finding out what happened until Ash mentioned that the group will find and rescue Silver. When Lugia found Silver in a cage, it went for the cage. Despite the group warning Lugia not to get closer, the parent Lugia was caught alongside its child.

In A Promise is a Promise, Lugia was taken captive to Team Rocket's base. Jessie, James, and Meowth attempt to free it until they got interrupted by Butch and Cassidy. Their battle accidentally freed the adult Lugia and it went on a rampage until it reunited with Silver. Although doing so, pieces of the ceiling were falling down and Lugia protected Silver and the group with Safeguard. After escaping from Team Rocket's base, Silver stayed with the adult Lugia with Oliver saying goodbye to them both.

Personality and characteristics

Lugia is very protective of its child, as shown when people it hasn't seen before were near it. Following Team Rocket's attack, Lugia and Silver left, with Silver having to separate from Oliver.

Wynaut

Wynaut
Debuts in Fangs for Nothin'
Gender Unknown

Wynaut
This Pokémon has not evolved.
Voice actor Japanese English
As Wynaut Megumi Hayashibara Kayzie Rogers

Wynaut is a wild Pokémon who followed Ash, his friends, and Team Rocket around in Blackthorn City. Even though it followed them everywhere, Jessie's Wobbuffet, Ash's Bayleef and Noctowl were the only ones to see it.

Wynaut first appeared in Fangs for Nothin' where it was briefly seen taking some food from Team Rocket. Wobbuffet only saw it doing so.

In Great Bowls of Fire, Wynaut popped its arm out of the bushes while Ash, Misty, Brock, Clair, and Liza returned to the Blackthorn Gym for Ash's Gym battle.

While Charla was about to eat some food in Better Eight Than Never, Liza provided to her, Wynaut quickly snatched the food from Charla, unbeknownst to her.

In Why? Wynaut!. While Team Rocket were spying on Ash and his friends, Wynaut sneaked over and took their snack, putting the blame on Wobbuffet. Wynaut went for Ash's Badges but Wobbuffet caught Wynaut this time. However, despite doing so, it was unable to tell Team Rocket that Wynaut took the badges. Later, Wynaut met Ash's Bayleef and Noctowl while they were searching for Ash's stolen badges. After finishing the berries Wynaut found, Wynaut went back inside a bush. When Team Rocket attacked Wooper and Bayleef, Wynaut jumped out and countered Arbok's Poison Sting and went back hiding in the bush. After defeating Team Rocket, Wynaut found the Rising Badge that Ash needed and gave it to Bayleef secretly. Wynaut left before Ash found out.

Personality and characteristics

Wynaut had a tendency to pop up out of nowhere at random moments, especially in its final appearance Why? Wynaut! when it popped out of nowhere and took the case containing Ash's badges (which Team Rocket had stolen from him) away from Wobbuffet who was guarding the case while its teammates were away. Wobbuffet was very confused and startled to see Wynaut, and panicked even more once Wynaut took the case away just as its teammates came back.

Later on in the episode after the case got open and the badges went all over the place, Ash and his friends as well as Noctowl and Bayleef searched everywhere for the badges. At first they found seven of them, and then Noctowl and Bayleef set out to find the one they had missed, and that's when they saw Wynaut who gave the badge to them, and then Bayleef called to Ash and gave him back his badge and he thanked her and asked her if it had just been lying on the ground. Bayleef tried to explain to her trainer about Wynaut, but it was already gone, causing both Bayleef and Noctowl to become confused, so Wynaut has a tendency to appear out of nowhere when a Pokémon is nearby and then disappear when people come around, showing that there's a possibility Wynaut either doesn't want to be seen by humans, or just likes playing a little joke leaving those who did see it very confused.

Loudred
This Pokémon has not evolved.
Voice actor Japanese English
As Loudred Kōichi Sakaguchi Darren Dunstan

Loudred first appeared in A Hole Lotta Trouble, where it ran by and stepped on Jessie when she was climbing up to the next floor of Granite Cave. In the next episode, Jessie fell on top of it while it was sleeping when she hastily ran to catch whatever was attacking Ash and his friends. Loudred then sent her, James, and Meowth flying with an extremely loud Screech attack.

It reappeared again in Turning Over a Nuzleaf, where it was pinched on the ear by Ash's Corphish. Loudred ran around in pain, screeching, causing the Silcoon to fall from May's arms and roll off, separating it and the other Pokémon that went to its rescue to become separated from their Trainers. Loudred's last appearance was in A Three Team Scheme! where Professor Birch fell from a Wingull's nest on to it, waking it from its sleep. Loudred screeched at him before leaving.

It reappeared in a flashback in Exploud and Clear!.

Personality and characteristics

Loudred does not like to be disturbed while it's sleeping, which it does most of the time, and this could mean that it's a lazy Pokémon. If it gets disturbed while it's sleeping, it'll become very angry and chase after the person or people that woke it up.

Debuts in Pearls are a Spoink's Best Friend
Gender Unknown*

Current location Hoenn
Spoink
This Pokémon has not evolved.
Voice actor Japanese English
As Spoink Miyako Itō Rachael Lillis

Spoink first appeared in Pearls are a Spoink's Best Friend. It had lost its pearl, and Ash and his friends were trying to find it. As it turns out, Team Rocket had found it and had traded it to the Magikarp salesman for a Magikarp. After learning this, the travelers confronted the salesman and demanded he give back the pearl. Team Rocket also demanded he give them the pearl back as well. In the ensuing battle, Spoink's pearl was returned and Team Rocket was sent blasting off.

Spoink made its second and final appearance in Clamperl of Wisdom. Like the previous time, it had lost its pearl. This time, it was lost in the ocean without any way of retrieving it. But the travelers learned from a scientist named Isaiah that Spoink's pearls come from Clamperl. Eventually, they found a Clamperl who was willing to give its pearl to Spoink. They said goodbye to Spoink, and it hasn't been seen since that episode.

Personality and characteristics

After losing its pearl, Spoink has a habit of using Psychic to move any round objects (and after a while, even not-so-round objects) on its head, including an angry Electrode, much to the dismay of those around it. It developed a friendship with Ash's Torkoal during its adventures with the group.

Activating Drought

Groudon first appeared in Gaining Groudon sleeping in its containment chamber.

In The Scuffle of Legends, Pikachu, who became possessed by the Blue Orb, awakened Groudon. It broke out of the chamber and destroyed Team Aqua's ship. Groudon nullified Kyogre's Drizzle with its own Ability, Drought. Groudon fought Kyogre in the ocean. Because of Brock and May's interference with Kyogre, Groudon was able to defeat Kyogre with Solar Beam. After the Blue and Red Orbs went in the sky, Groudon went back in a volcano.

Personality and characteristics

Groudon's personality is unknown as it was only seen awakened once. However, Groudon may be somewhat helpful, as it awoke in order to stop Kyogre from drowning Monsu Island into the sea.

Voice actor Japanese English
As Kyogre N/A
Activating Drizzle

Kyogre first appeared in Gaining Groudon sleeping in the containment room of Team Magma's ship. It was freed by Shelly who infiltrated the ship in disguise as a member of Team Magma. After being freed, Kyogre escaped Team Magma's ship and destroyed it with Hyper Beam. Kyogre was later seen sleeping in its containment chamber on Team Aqua's ship. Kyogre once again escaped after Team Rocket failed to catch it with their net electrified.

In The Scuffle of Legends, Kyogre was out in the ocean near Monsu Island where its appearance caused a heavy downpour and strong winds. Using the Red Orb, Archie took control of Kyogre where he had it attack Lance's Dragonite which Dragonite narrowly dodged the attack and then fought Gyarados. After Groudon appeared which nullified the weather, Kyogre fought Groudon. Because of the interference with May's Beautifly and Brock's Mudkip, Kyogre was defeated by Groudon's Solar Beam which separated the orbs from Archie and Pikachu. Despite Archie being saved by Dragonite, Pikachu fell in the ocean and Kyogre, released from the Red Orb, swam underwater to rescue both Ash and Pikachu. Kyogre resurfaced with the two and both the Blue and Red Orbs went in the sky. With that done, Kyogre returned deep in the ocean.

Personality and characteristics

Kyogre's personality is unknown as it was only seen under the control of Archie. However, it is shown to be immensely powerful, causing large storms and almost able to drown Monsu Island. However, outside of Archie's control, it was shown to save Ash and Pikachu from drowning, which may suggest that it is somewhat helpful.

As Deoxys Unknown

Deoxys first appeared in Pokémon Ranger - Deoxys' Crisis! (Part 1), where it emerged from a portal in the sky. As Max saw Deoxys, he experienced a vision as soon as it went back into a portal.

Later, Solana investigated a cave as it was where the source of the geomagnetic disturbances that have been going on. She went on her own originally, but she ended up allowing Ash and his friends to tag along since she spotted Max behind some bushes. At the end of the cave, Deoxys emerged from a portal above a meteorite. It ended up battling Ash, his friends, and Solana. Solana tried capturing Deoxys with her Capture Styler, but the effort failed as it had to be in Normal Forme. Everyone finds out from Meowth that Deoxys was in pain. Max climbed up the meteorite with Meowth and Deoxys up there. Deoxys creates a Safeguard around it, Max, and Meowth. Max found out that during the space flight, it was cold and scared. Deoxys then took the two to its world.

In Pokémon Ranger - Deoxys' Crisis! (Part 2), Deoxys continued telling Max its story. After Ash and the others returned to the cave, Deoxys came out of its world. Everyone evacuated the cave as the meteorite was overloading with energy while Deoxys went back in its dimension. Deoxys emerged from the portal with Max and Meowth still inside. The group had another battle with it in an attempt for Solana to recatch it. During the battle, Meowth and Max were able to escape the alternate dimension. Sceptile battled Deoxys in order to get it to change into Normal Forme, and managed to do so. Immediately afterwards, Solana successfully used her Capture Styler to capture Deoxys. Solana had it use Recover to heal itself and then protect the group from the meteorite's strong blast of energy. With the disturbance gone, Deoxys left, hoping to visit the planet even more.

Mesprit

Mesprit
Main article: Lake guardians (anime)

Dawn saw the projected soul of Mesprit near Lake Verity in Following A Maiden Voyage!.

A statue and silhouette of the same Mesprit appears in A Secret Sphere of Influence.

Mesprit itself appeared in The Needs of the Three!, where it, along with Uxie, came to Lake Valor after Azelf was captured. However, it was also captured by J and Team Galactic, but before it was captured, it used Future Sight with Uxie, destroying her ship later on. It was then controlled by the team to help fulfill its goal. In The Battle Finale of Legend!, after breaking from their control with the help of Dawn's Piplup and Cynthia's Garchomp, it helped in stopping Cyrus's plot to use Dialga and Palkia.

Mesprit also appeared in PK21 with Uxie and Azelf, serving Pikachu and his friends some apples.

As Marill Unknown N/A

A Marill with the ability to Sing appeared in Pikachu's Exploration Club, Pikachu's Ice Adventure, Pikachu's Big Sparking Search, and Pikachu's Big Mysterious Adventure. It seems to be similar to Jigglypuff in that it is offended whenever its listeners fall asleep and responds by inflating itself in anger.

Personality and characteristics

As stated before, this Marill is very similar to the recurring Jigglypuff as it loves to sing for an audience and gets furious when its audience falls asleep on it. The only difference between Marill and Jigglypuff is that Jigglypuff scribbles on the audience, whereas Marill uses Tail Whip on the audience.

Voice actor Japanese English
As Hippopotas Chie Satō

Hippopotas made his first appearance in Mass Hip-Po-Sis!, where Ash, with the aid of his friends, rescued the Hippo Pokémon from being trapped upon a high ledge. It was then discovered that Hippopotas was lost, having been separated from its herd. As a result, Ash and his friends helped Hippopotas find his way back. Like a few other Pokémon, Hippopotas seemed to like riding atop of Ash's head.

Team Rocket attempted to steal Hippopotas for Giovanni. All the while, Jessie had trouble saying the Pokémon's species name.

Hippopotas's second and final appearance was in Sleight of Sand! with his father, Hippowdon. In this episode, Butch and Cassidy also wanted to kidnap the Hippo Pokémon, but they failed.

Personality and characteristics

Hippopotas was shown to be extremely friendly and trusting of Ash and his friends when he first appeared in Mass Hip-Po-Sis. This is because Ash saved Hippopotas when he was stuck on the ledge of a cliff and then gave it some food that he had been trying to reach. In Sleight of Sand, Hippopotas was saddened at the prospect of being separated from its herd again when it re-encountered Ash and his friends.

Trivia

  • Hippopotas's tendency to use Yawn seems to mirror Jigglypuff's love for singing.
  • Although Hippopotas weighs 109.1 pounds in the games, Ash has no problem carrying him. This is an example of anime physics.

Azelf

Azelf
Main article: Lake guardians (anime)

Azelf appeared in spirit form (much like Mesprit did to Dawn in Following a Maiden's Voyage!) to Ash in Pruning a Passel of Pals!.

Azelf first appeared in its physical form in The Needs of the Three!, where it was the first to be captured by J and Team Galactic. It was then controlled by the team to help fulfill its goal. In The Battle Finale of Legend!, after breaking from their control with the help of Ash's Pikachu and Staraptor, it helped stop Cyrus's plot to use Dialga and Palkia.

Azelf also appeared in PK21 with Uxie and Mesprit, serving Pikachu and his friends some apples.

However, it was also captured by J and Team Galactic, but before that happened, it used Future Sight with Mesprit, destroying J's ship later on. It was then controlled by the team to help fulfill its goal. In The Battle Finale of Legend!, after breaking from their control with the help of Brock's Croagunk and Ash's Gliscor, it helped in stopping Cyrus's plot to use Dialga and Palkia.

In Enter Iris and Axew!, Zekrom appeared once more and caused a thunderstorm. The storm hit Pikachu again and he regained his Electric powers.

Zekrom made further appearances in flashbacks.

It reappeared in Secrets From Out of the Fog! in another flashback, following N's admission that he was once a member of Team Plasma. In this flashback, it was revealed that Reshiram was responsible for burning the castle.

Reshiram reappeared in a flashback in Ash and N: A Clash of Ideals!.

Reshiram was revived from the Light Stone in What Lies Beyond Truth and Ideals!. Following the revival, Colress zapped it with his machine and Ghetsis took control of it. Because of Pikachu and Reshiram rebelling against the machine, Colress and Ghetsis lost control of Reshiram. Before Reshiram flies off, N stopped it and said that he always wanted to meet it. N asked Reshiram how it felt when it saw everyone battle against evil in the ruins, and Reshiram silently responded to him by looking at him.

N also asked if it could believe in humans as they believe in Pokémon. He then told Reshiram that just like it, he will keep fighting for the ideal world that everyone can live in. Reshiram accepted N's request and flew away peacefully into the sky.

Personality and characteristics

Reshiram's personality is largely a mystery, as it was only seen in flashbacks and under the control of Ghetsis. However, it appears to have a close association with N, and it is able to effectively commune with him.

Malamar
This Pokémon is fully evolved.
Voice actor Japanese English
As Malamar Kensuke Satō Marc Thompson

Malamar first appeared in A Conspiracy to Conquer!. Unlike most wild Pokémon, this Malamar is an independently evil being who conspires to change the face of the world. It hypnotized an Officer Jenny who went to investigate at a radio observatory. As a result, she became Madame X. Together, the two went to a dark cave where Team Rocket were and hypnotized them, save for Meowth, who quickly slashed up his own face with Fury Swipes. With Team Rocket in tow, Malamar found the whereabouts of Ash and his friends by a tree. It took Pikachu with them and forced him to be under their control.

By the time Ash, his friends, and Meowth arrived in the observation chamber of the radio observatory, Malamar cruelly took control of Clemont, Bonnie, and Serena. The Automatic Pikachu Retrieving Device that Clemont built earlier entered the observatory and crashed into Malamar, breaking its control over everyone it hypnotized. Officer Jenny went back to normal and explained what happened. Malamar revealed that it tricked them into believing that Madame X was a real person and it was using her as its pawn. Malamar also revealed that Madame X's goal of taking over the world was a lie and hopes to reconstruct the world using a mind control machine. Angered at Malamar's lies and dishonesty, Ash, Officer Jenny, and the gang went after Malamar who led them to a room containing the system of great significance. Since everyone saw what Malamar was doing, it destroyed the weapon that it was building and fled.

Malamar with its two fellow Malamar

Malamar reappeared in Facing the Grand Design! where it had recruited two other Malamar in a plan to distort the world using energy crystals. Malamar and the other two hypnotized the top scientists in Kalos to build the energy crystals. Afterwards, they stole three delivery trucks and recklessly drove them with the crystals to the Grace Tower to get their plan in action. When Team Rocket went to the top of Grace Tower, the Malamar trio spotted them after Inkay became furious at the one particular Malamar for what it did to them previously. Malamar was unable to find the Team Rocket trio after they fled.

Malamar discovered the trio along with Ash, his friends, and the Officer Jenny who it had hypnotized before. The three of them caught Ash, his friends (with the exception of Clemont), Jessie, and Officer Jenny by keeping them frozen in the air through Psychic, leaving Clemont, Meowth, James and Inkay to save the day. Malamar and the other two were defeated after being subdued by James's Inkay, a group of good Malamar and other wild Inkay who James and Clemont had brought to help, their crystals were deactivated by Officer Jenny's Manectric. Despite their defeat and Officer Jenny pointing it out, all of the crystals combined into one and the evil Malamar went in them as a method of escape, allowing all three of them to avoid capture and thus destroying any evidence of their plan. Before they left, they claimed they were heading into the future but swore they would return to fight once more and their plan would succeed someday.

Personality and characteristics

Unlike most Pokémon, Malamar is a cruel and evil Pokémon with a mysterious dark past. Though there have been many mischievous, manipulative and misunderstood Pokémon in the series, the wild Malamar are unique for being one of the only to seek world dominion without any known human influence. Malamar had no trouble with its plans for world domination as it hypnotized people and Pokémon to do its bidding. However, Trainers with a strong bond with their Pokémon such as Ash with Pikachu and James with Inkay are able to break free of Malamar's hypnotic control, or by pain as seen in Meowth's case, snapping out of it by scratching himself - or others such as Ash - repeatedly in the face. The three evil Malamar are shown to be psychopaths for they showed no signs of remorse, guilt, or redemption after their plans were stopped by Ash and his friends. They're also shown to be very merciless when their leader brainwashed several Pokémon, Ash's friends, Team Rocket, Pikachu and Officer Jenny and forced them to attack Ash and Meowth without any decency or mercy. They even lack a sense of honor and morality as shown when they refused to accept defeat or learn from their previous mistakes.

Voice actor Japanese English
As Tapu Koko Rikako Aikawa Erica Schroeder‎
Electric Surge activated

Tapu Koko first appeared in Alola to New Adventure!, in which it dropped a couple of Sitrus Berries on a wild Bewear, which ended up chasing after Ash and his Pikachu. Ash saw it later in the episode, but he wasn't sure what it was, until he described it to Professor Kukui and his classmates, and they told him what the Pokémon he saw was. Near the end of the episode, Ash heard some cries, which led to him meeting Tapu Koko in person. It gave Ash a Z-Ring, equipped with an Electrium Z.

In the following episode, Tapu Koko came across Ash and his classmates as they were enjoying lunch, and it stole Ash's hat. It flew off to a nearby forest, where it waited for Ash to battle it. After a couple of attacks, Tapu Koko came up to Ash and activated his Electrium-Z, leading Ash to command his Pikachu to use his first Z-Move, Gigavolt Havoc on Tapu Koko. Despite the attack creating a big explosion, Tapu Koko protected itself with its armor and did not receive any damage. After that, Tapu Koko flew off, ending its battle with Ash.

Tapu Koko reappeared in To Top a Totem!, in which Hala informed Ash about the Tapu Koko that he met earlier. Later in the episode, it watched Ash's battle against a Yungoos, a Gumshoos and a Totem Gumshoos in Verdant Cavern.

In the following episode, Tapu Koko stole the Fightinium Z which Hala was about to give Ash for defeating him in the island challenge, and replaced it with an Electrium-Z, much to Ash and Hala's surprise.

Tapu Koko reappeared in A Guardian Rematch!, in which it had a rematch against Pikachu and was able to withstand Gigavolt Havoc. The match ended with no clear winner after Pikachu fell off a cliff, which Tapu Koko helped to save Ash and Pikachu from.

Tapu Koko reappeared in A Dream Encounter!, in which it and the other guardian deities sensed the birth of a Cosmog nicknamed Nebby. The next day, it led Ash to Nebby, then flew away.

It next appeared in the Poké Problem segment of SM050, where it sensed Nebby's evolution from Cosmog into Cosmoem. In the following episode, it appeared at Poni Island together with the other guardian deities.

In Revealing the Stuff of Legend!, Tapu Koko and the other guardian deities revealed that they were the ones who took Nebby to Melemele Island, where Ash would eventually find and take care of it. At the Altar of the Sunne, the four guardian deities performed a ritual that allowed Nebby to evolve into Solgaleo. When Ash received a Solganium Z from Nebby, he found that it was unable to fit in his regular Z-Ring. Tapu Koko then took the Z-Ring, and through a dance, it and the other guardian deities upgraded the Z-Ring into a Z-Power Ring so Ash could properly use Solgaleo's Z-Move, Searing Sunraze Smash. The four then dispersed after seeing Nebby carry Ash and his friends through the Ultra Wormhole.

Tapu Koko made several appearances in Rise and Shine, Starship!. First, it witnessed Celesteela's discovery by Sophocles, and later watched it fly off towards the moon.

Tapu Koko reappeared in Twirling with a Bang!, watching as the Ultra Guardians helped send Blacephalon and Xurkitree home.

Tapu Koko reappeared in Full Moon and Many Arms!, where it helped defend Lunala against Necrozma. It later watched as Hala saw the sunrise during the Manalo Festival.

In SM090, Tapu Koko attacked the Matori Matrix's aircraft in order to prevent them from going through an Ultra Wormhole to chase after Necrozma. Later, it, its fellow guardian deities, and the rest of Alola helped Necrozma regain its true form by giving it some of their Z-Power.

Tapu Koko reappeared again in SM100, where it engaged Ash and Pikachu in a battle, only to transport them to another world with the assistance of a Shiny Tapu Koko.

Personality and characteristics

Tapu Koko appears to be a serious Pokémon, but despite this character trait, it didn't seem to mind Pikachu playing with its arm in Revealing the Stuff of Legend!. Tapu Koko is shown to be very interested in Ash and is often seen observing him. It has shown a strong desire to challenge Ash and test his skills, even stealing Ash's hat in order for him to follow and battle it. Tapu Koko also appears to have great faith in Ash, entrusting him a Z-Ring and an Electrium Z as well as leaving Nebby in his care. Tapu Koko also appears to not tolerate impulsive behavior from other people. For example, when Gladion arrogantly yelled at the guardian deities out of impatience, it gave him an angry stare, telling him to wait. It has shown to take an interest in the Ultra Guardian's work at helping Ultra Beasts as seen in Rise and Shine, Starship! and Twirling with a Bang!.

As Tapu Lele Risa Shimizu‎ Unknown

Tapu Lele debuted in Partner Promises!, where Ash and Pikachu on Treasure Island. It was seen floating over the ocean, and scattered its glowing scales all over Ash to heal the wounds inflicted on him while he was rescuing a trapped Wimpod. Afterwards, it took off into the sky. After Ash returned to Professor Kukui's house, Rotom Pokédex identified it as a Tapu Lele.

Tapu Lele reappeared in The Island Whisperer!, during a flashback and a fantasy. It appeared again in Trials and Determinations!, flying over Ash, his classmates, Olivia, and Professor Kukui, after Ash's grand trial against Olivia.

Tapu Lele reappeared in Rising from the Ruins!, where it battled Ash's Rockruff and won easily. When Olivia and Gladion's Lycanroc brought it to be healed by the guardian deity. When Tapu Lele seemed to be incapable of completely healing Rockruff, it attacked the two Lycanroc until Ash arrived and stepped in to protect them. It then used Draining Kiss to drain energy from Ash and the two Lycanroc, allowing it to heal Rockruff. Tapu Lele also stayed to watch as Rockruff subsequently evolved into a Dusk Form Lycanroc in the light of the setting sun, smiling happily as it the floated away afterwards.

Tapu Lele was seen briefly in A Dream Encounter!, where it and the other Guardian deities had sensed the birth of a Cosmog nicknamed Nebby. In Family Determination!, it appeared at Poni Island together with the other guardian deities.

In Revealing the Stuff of Legend!, Tapu Lele and the other guardian deities revealed that they were the ones who took Nebby to Melemele Island, where Ash would eventually find and take care of it. At the Altar of the Sunne, the four guardian deities performed a ritual that allowed Nebby to evolve into Solgaleo. When Ash received a Solganium Z from Nebby, he found that it was unable to fit in his regular Z-Ring. Tapu Koko then took the Z-Ring, and through a dance, it and the other guardian deities upgraded the Z-Ring into a Z-Power Ring so Ash could properly use Solgaleo's Z-Move, Searing Sunraze Smash. The four then dispersed after seeing Nebby carry Ash and his friends through the Ultra Wormhole.

Tapu Lele reappeared in Full Moon and Many Arms!, where it watched Olivia as she observed the sunrise during the Manalo Festival.

In SM090, Tapu Lele, its fellow guardian deities, and the rest of Alola helped Necrozma regain its true form by giving it some of their Z-Power.

Personality and characteristics

As a guardian deity, Tapu Lele seems to be a kind and caring Pokémon, willingly using its scales to heal humans and Pokémon, such as Ash and a wild Yungoos, even if it doesn't know them. It also greatly enjoys battling other Pokémon that catch its interest, but its cruel sense of innocence is shown when it seemingly fails to realize that its attacks seriously hurt opponents much weaker than itself. This was demonstrated in Rising from the Ruins!, where it challenged Ash's Rockruff and defeated it easily, acting gleefully happy the whole time.

As Tapu Bulu Unshō Ishizuka (SM044-SM090) Sam Black

Tapu Bulu first appeared in A Dream Encounter!, where it reacted to Nebby's creation. In Family Determination!, it appeared at Poni Island together with the other guardian deities.

In Revealing the Stuff of Legend!, Tapu Bulu and the other guardian deities reveal that they were the ones who took Nebby to Melemele Island, where Ash would eventually find and take care of it. At the Altar of the Sunne, the four guardian deities performed a ritual to allow Nebby, now a Cosmoem, to evolve into Solgaleo. When Ash received a Solganium Z from Nebby, he found that it was unable to fit in his regular Z-Ring. Tapu Koko then took the Z-Ring, and through a dance, it and the other guardian deities upgraded the Z-Ring into a Z-Power Ring so Ash could properly use Solgaleo's Z-Move, Searing Sunraze Smash. The four then dispersed after seeing Nebby carry Ash and friends through the Ultra Wormhole.

It made its first solo appearance in Some Kind of Laziness!, where Ash and Acerola visited it at the Ruins of Abundance. Ash requested that Tapu Bulu help train his team so that he may face the Island Kahuna Nanu in a rematch. While it initially ignored Ash so it could continue sleeping, Tapu Bulu eventually agreed to help. By planting seeds and growing them into trees, Tapu Bulu helped Ash's Rowlet learn Razor Leaf. Later, it deliberately dirtied Ash's Lycanroc's fur by pushing it into the water, angering Lycanroc into its berserk state until Ash calmed it down. After seeing the bond Ash and Lycanroc shared, Tapu Bulu agreed to battle with them. Though the battle ended without a victor, Tapu Bulu was impressed when Lycanroc proved to be a powerful opponent with its newly-learned Stone Edge.

Tapu Bulu reappeared in Guiding an Awakening!, where it watched Ash's battle against Nanu and dropped two Sitrus Berries for Lycanroc to consume.

Tapu Bulu reappeared in Full Moon and Many Arms!, where it watched Nanu and Acerola as they observed the sunrise during the Manalo Festival.

In SM090, Tapu Bulu, its fellow guardian deities, and the rest of Alola helped Necrozma regain its true form by giving it some of their Z-Power.

Personality and characteristics

It appears to be more serious and subdued, compared to the more expressive Tapu Lele and Tapu Fini. In Some Kind of Laziness!, Tapu Bulu was shown to be a fairly lazy Pokémon due to the fact that it constantly like to sleep on a rock in the Ruins of Abundance. Despite this, once it saw how determined Ash was to help his Lycanroc, Tapu Bulu battled the Wolf Pokémon with everything it had. Tapu Bulu was also shown to be very happy for Lycanroc when it got over its aversion to having its fur become wet or dirty.

Tapu Bulu has been shown as being kind to Pokémon, as evident in Guiding an Awakening!, when it dropped some Sitrus Berries for Lycanroc to consume during its battle against Nanu following Lycanroc's defeat of Sableye.

The Pikipek's Eggs

A group of Pikipek is part of a family led by a Trumbeak and a Toucannon that lives in a forest on Melemele Island. The Pikipek are bred from Pokémon Eggs by Toucannon. By mistake, a Rowlet was born into the nest of Pikipek. The Rowlet would grow up alongside the Pikipek but would never be fully accepted by them, Trumbeak, and Toucannon.

The Pikipek first appeared in First Catch in Alola, Ketchum-Style!, taking fruit from the citizens of Hau'oli City. The people of Melemele Island allow the group of Pikipek to take their fruit so that people and Pokémon can live in harmony. The next day, the Pikipek and Trumbeak invaded Bewear's den and took the berries. Later, back at their nest, the group was attacked by Team Rocket who were trying to get Bewear's berries back. Even though having been banished from the group earlier, Rowlet saved them. They thanked it and then watched as Rowlet left the group to join Ash.

Three of them reappeared in A Seasoned Search!, where they were briefly reunited with Rowlet when Ash and Mallow visited its nest to see if its flock knew where to find Yellow Nectar. However, they didn't know where to find it.

Five of them reappeared in SM097, when Rowlet visited the group family after losing to Hau and his Dartrix.

Personality and characteristics

The Pikipek are shown to be friendly Pokémon and seem to have a good bond with Rowlet. They are usually seen together as a flock and follow Trumbeak around whenever they are collecting fruit.

Trumbeak is part of a family of Pikipek led by a Toucannon that lives in a forest on Melemele Island. Its exact position in the group is unknown, although it is the second-in-command after Toucannon. By mistake, a Rowlet was born into the nest of Pikipek. The Rowlet would grow up alongside the Pikipek but would never be fully accepted by them, Trumbeak, and Toucannon.

Trumbeak first appeared in First Catch in Alola, Ketchum-Style!, leading the Pikipek in taking fruit from the citizens of Hau'oli City. The people of Melemele Island allow the group of Pikipek to take their fruit so that people and Pokémon can live in harmony. After taking the fruit back to their nest, it was discovered that Rowlet had accidentally brought a wind chime instead of fruit. Trumbeak scolded Rowlet for this and banished it from the group.

The next day, Trumbeak led the Pikipek out once to more to get more food and invaded Bewear's den and took all the berries. Returning to the nest, Trumbeak congratulated Rowlet who had returned with a melon before the group was attacked by Team Rocket who were trying to get Bewear's berries back. With help from Ash, Rowlet managed to save them. They thanked it, with Trumbeak hugging Rowlet and then watched as Rowlet left the group to join Ash.

Trumbeak reappeared in A Seasoned Search!, where it was briefly reunited with Rowlet when Ash and Mallow visited its nest to see if its flock knew where to find Yellow Nectar. However, they didn't know where to find it.

Trumbeak reappeared in SM090 alongside Toucannon, where they helped Necrozma regain its true form by giving it some of their Z-Power.

Trumbeak reappeared in SM097, when Rowlet visited the group family after losing to Hau and his Dartrix. Trumbeak used Bullet Seed alongside Toucannon, which helped teach Rowlet how to use Seed Bomb.

Personality and characteristics

Trumbeak and Rowlet

Trumbeak has been shown to be rather stern, but caring all the same. It scolded Rowlet when it failed to bring food back to the nest and became annoyed at Rowlet when it fell asleep as it was telling Rowlet off. Despite being annoyed towards Rowlet, Trumbeak praises it when it returned with a melon and is thankful, as seen when Rowlet helped save them from Team Rocket. It even gave Rowlet a hug as it left to join Ash's team. This was seen again in SM097, where it welcomed Rowlet back into its flock and helped teach it how to use Seed Bomb.

Toucannon hatching the Pikipek Eggs

Toucannon is the leader of a group of Pikipek and one Trumbeak that lives in a forest on Melemele Island. Toucannon is responsible for hatching the Pikipek from Pokémon Eggs, while it leaves the hunt for food to Trumbeak and the Pikipek. By mistake, a Rowlet was born into the nest of Pikipek. The Rowlet would grow up alongside the Pikipek but would never be fully accepted by them, Trumbeak, and Toucannon.

Toucannon first appeared in First Catch in Alola, Ketchum-Style!, waiting at its nest for the Pikipek, Trumbeak, and Rowlet to return with fruit. When it turned out Rowlet had accidentally brought a wind chime instead of fruit, Trumbeak gave it a scolding and banished it from the group. The next day as the Pikipek and Trumbeak were out looking for food, Toucannon was thinking back to the time where Rowlet's egg hatched among the Pikipek when Rowlet returned with a melon just as the group was attacked by Team Rocket who were trying to get Bewear's berries back. With help from Ash, Rowlet managed to save them. Ash planned to catch Rowlet, but upon seeing it happy with its family, he decided not to. Nevertheless, Toucannon successfully encouraged Rowlet to join Ash.

Toucannon reappeared in A Seasoned Search!, where it was briefly reunited with Rowlet when Ash and Mallow visited its nest to see if its flock knew where to find Yellow Nectar. However, they didn't know where to find it.

Toucannon reappeared in SM090 alongside Trumbeak, where they helped Necrozma regain its true form by giving it some of their Z-Power.

Toucannon reappeared in SM097, when Rowlet visited the group family after losing to Hau and his Dartrix. Trumbeak used Bullet Seed alongside Toucannon, which helped teach Rowlet how to use Seed Bomb.

Personality and characteristics

Toucannon is shown to have a caring personality as shown when it was looking after the young Pikipek and Rowlet. Toucannon was shown to be worried for Rowlet after it was banished from the group, as seen when it was pacing about the nest, remembering the time Rowlet accidentally hatched from an Egg. Toucannon is also shown to get annoyed if someone touches its beak, as seen when Rotom did so to see if it felt hot, making Toucannon intentionally heat up its beak to burn Rotom.

Toucannon is shown as being helpful towards Rowlet even after it left the family. This was seen in SM097, where, after Rowlet's loss to Hau and Dartrix, Toucannon helped it learn Seed Bomb, which would later be essential to Rowlet's victory in a rematch against Dartrix.

Stoutland and Litten

Stoutland was a friend of a Litten that wandered around Melemele Island. It was an elderly Pokémon that Litten looked out for, by giving it food, and keeping it company. Ash intended to catch Litten but he gave up when he discovered the Pokémon giving food and company to Stoutland.

Stoutland reappeared in They Might Not Be Giants!, where it and Litten moved under a canal bridge. It encountered Ash's Rowlet and Lana's Popplio when the two had become separated from their Trainers, and instructed a reluctant Litten to guide them back.

Stoutland reappeared once again in One Journey Ends, Another Begins..., visibly worse in condition and coughing constantly. It had attempted to teach Litten Fire Fang by demonstrating it, but Litten ended up hurting itself when it attempted to bite a rock. Stoutland later collapsed, and Litten ran off to get Ash's help, who proceeded to carry it to a Pokémon Center. Stoutland was taken into the center's emergency room and hooked up to an electrocardiogram as it was attended to by the center's Nurse Joy and her Blissey and Comfey. Nurse Joy came out to the waiting room to inform Ash that Stoutland was not ill or injured, and Litten rushed through the open door to check on Stoutland while the two humans agreed that they knew what was going to happen.

Stoutland later left the Pokémon Center and returned to its home under the bridge with Litten, unsuccessfully attempting to teach it Fire Fang again and falling asleep during Litten's turn. After curling up into Stoutland afterwards, Litten awoke in fear after a dream where it was unable to keep up with Stoutland and discovered it had disappeared. Stoutland's disappearance and Litten's unsuccessful search for it coincided with a heavy rainstorm. After being found by Ash, Litten chased a tree's last leaf when it was blown away by the wind after the rain stopped. It then discovered a cloud formation shaped like Stoutland smiling down upon it.

Stoutland briefly reappeared in Treasure Hunt, Akala Style! during a flashback.

Personality and characteristics

Stoutland was shown to having a caring side where it got Litten to help return Ash's Rowlet and Lana's Popplio to its Trainers, despite Litten's reluctance. Stoutland is shown to be kind and helpful as shown in One Journey Ends, Another Begins... where before it disappeared, it was helping to teach Litten how to use Fire Fang.

In Faba's Revenge!, Faba created an Ultra Wormhole using Nebby's power. After appearing in the Aether Foundation basement laboratories, Nihilego promptly knocked out Faba before reaching out for Lillie. However, she was protected by Lusamine, who was captured instead and then taken through the Wormhole. After attaching itself to Lusamine, it started playing on her desires and reduced her mentality to that of a child's.

As such, when Gladion, Ash, and his classmates came to save her in Rescuing the Unwilling!, she instead ran away, releasing her Pokémon enhanced by Nihilego's power as a deterrent. Nihilego also used various other means to deter the children, but in the end was cornered by Ash, Lillie, and Gladion. When Lillie managed to get through to Lusamine, Nihilego interfered, trying to keep Lusamine to itself. In the end, Ash managed to defeat it using 10,000,000 Volt Thunderbolt in 10,000,000 Reasons to Fight!, allowing Lusamine to separate from it.

A Nihilego made an appearance in the past, where it attacked Lillie, and was then in turn attacked by Silvally. However, it is uncertain if it is the same one.

Personality and characteristics

Nihilego has been shown to be a very hostile Pokémon, attacking anyone on sight and even kidnapping Lusamine. According to Gladion, Nihilego might have an interest in humans, which is why it fused itself with Lusamine, in an attempt to learn more about them.

Naganadel debuted in The Shape of Love to Come! in Ash's Poipole's dream. It made its physical debut in The Prism Between Light and Darkness!, where it encountered the Ultra Guardians after they arrived in its home world with Lunala's help. After being healed, Naganadel telepathically told everyone how Necrozma lost its light saving the world from a meteor, causing everything to become a dark and barren wasteland. Afterwards, the Ultra Guardians decided to help restore Naganadel's world by sharing their Z-Power with Necrozma in order to turn it back to its former self.

In SM090, Naganadel helped Necrozma regain its true form by giving it some of its Z-Power. Once successful, Necrozma turned back into Ultra Necrozma and restored Naganadel's home world to its former glory. As the Ultra Guardians prepared to leave, Naganadel informed Ash that Poipole wished to stay behind and protect its home, much to Ash's sadness.

Lunala first appeared in Filling the Light with Darkness!, where it was playfully chasing Nebby through an Ultra Wormhole. However, both of them soon found themselves being chased by Necrozma. Lunala later emerged out of the Ultra Wormhole at the Altar of the Sunne, appearing before Ash, his classmates, Gladion, Lusamine, Wicke, Faba, and Professor Burnet, with Necrozma still chasing it.

Lunala merged with Necrozma

Lunala reappeared in Full Moon and Many Arms!, where Necrozma continued to chase it around Melemele Island. Despite the best efforts of Tapu Koko, Necrozma was able to merge with Lunala, becoming Dawn Wings Necrozma. Lunala was later freed when Nebby appeared and forced Necrozma to separate from it. Lunala was subsequently taken to the Ultra Guardians base below the Pokémon School to be healed. Later, Lunala was able to recover itself by using the energy emitted from Ash, Kiawe, Lana, and Gladion's Z-Rings.

In The Prism Between Light and Darkness!, Lunala turned into its Full Moon phase and traveled through an Ultra Wormhole with the Ultra Guardians, whereupon they arrived at Poipole's home world. While the Ultra Guardians stayed back to assist Naganadel at Poipole's home, Lunala went ahead to face Necrozma. Later, Lunala was defeated by Necrozma, but was rescued by Gladion's Silvally.

In SM090, Lunala helped Necrozma by giving it some of its Z-Power. The attempt was successful in getting Necrozma to let go of Nebby, but it also angered Necrozma into attacking everyone again. After giving Gladion a Lunalium Z, Lunala and Gladion performed Menacing Moonraze Maelstrom while Ash and Nebby used Searing Sunraze Smash. The combined Z-Moves successfully gave Necrozma enough light to regain its true form and restore Poipole's home world back to normal. Afterwards, it, Nebby, and the Ultra Guardians went back to Alola.

Personality and characteristics

Lunala in its Full Moon phase

Lunala is shown to have a caring attitude towards humans, as evident in Full Moon and Many Arms!, where it saved Lillie, a girl it barely knew, from falling when she was knocked off her Ride Altaria. Lunala is also been shown as being playful, as evident by the way it was chasing Nebby through an Ultra Wormhole.

Necrozma first appeared in Filling the Light with Darkness!, where it chased after Nebby and Lunala in an Ultra Wormhole. They emerged out of the Ultra Wormhole at the Altar of the Sunne, appearing before Ash, his classmates, Gladion, Lusamine, Wicke, Faba, and Professor Burnet.

It reappeared in Full Moon and Many Arms!, where, despite the best efforts of Tapu Koko and the Ultra Guardians, it was able to merge with Lunala and form Dawn Wings Necrozma. In this state, a special unit from Team Rocket attempted to catch it, but it was able to break through the net easily. Nebby then appeared and attacked Necrozma with Sunsteel Strike, forcing it to separate from Lunala. However, Necrozma then merged with Nebby to form Dusk Mane Necrozma, and left through another Ultra Wormhole.

In The Prism Between Light and Darkness!, the Ultra Guardians and Lunala followed Necrozma through an Ultra Wormhole and arrived at Poipole's home world. While Lunala went ahead to face Necrozma again, the Ultra Guardians stayed behind with Naganadel and were told of how Necrozma lost its light saving the world from a meteor. Afterwards, the Ultra Guardians found Lunala in the process of being defeated by Necrozma and rescued it. Intent on freeing Nebby and restoring Poipole's home world, Ash, Kiawe, Lana, and Gladion fired simultaneous Z-Moves at Necrozma, hoping that their Z-Power would restore Necrozma to its true self as the Blinding One.

In SM090, Necrozma absorbed the Z-Moves, but that wasn't enough to get it to let go of Nebby. However, with the combined Z-Power of the Ultra Guardians and their allies back in Alola, Necrozma was filled with enough light to release Nebby from its grasp. Despite their success, Necrozma was only angered by the attempt and attacked everyone so it could absorb Nebby once again. With the Z-Crystals they received from Nebby and Lunala, Ash and Gladion performed Searing Sunraze Smash and Menacing Moonraze Maelstrom, respectively. The two Z-Moves fully restored Necrozma back to its original self, Ultra Necrozma. Necrozma then used its power to restore Poipole's home world back to its previous state. Afterwards, Necrozma appeared in Alola before dissipating into light.

In the anime, the Aether Foundation, assuming that Necrozma is an Ultra Beast, gives it the codename (Japanese: UB:BLACK UB: Black).

Personality and characteristics

In its weakened, black state, Necrozma was shown to be a highly aggressive Pokémon. It had a strong desire to absorb the light emitted by Lunala, determinedly chasing it all the way to Alola. It also took out anything that stood in its way, such as Nebby when it fought to protect Lunala. According to a legend regarding Necrozma, it was once a benevolent Pokémon that gave light to the Alola region along with the other members of the Light trio. This benevolent side was first seen in a flashback in The Prism Between Light and Darkness!, where it stopped a meteor from crashing into Poipole's world.

Upon being restored to its original form, Necrozma once again returned to being a benevolent being, using its regained power to restore Poipole's world back to its original lustrous, green state.
