Inside the Ruins of Life

The Ruins of Life first appeared in Trials and Determinations!, in which Ash, his classmates, and Professor Kukui passed through them on their way to the site of Ash's grand trial with Olivia. Olivia, after paying her respects to Tapu Lele at the altar in the ruins, joined the group at the battlefield located right next to the site, where she and Ash had their grand trial battle. The battle ended in Ash's victory, earning him a Rockium Z.

The ruins appeared again in Rising from the Ruins!. After Ash's Rockruff was saved from drowning in a river by Olivia's Lycanroc, it and Gladion's Lycanroc brought it to the Ruins of Life to be healed by Tapu Lele. When Ash, Olivia, and Professor Kukui arrived at the ruins while looking for Rockruff, Tapu Lele used Draining Kiss to absorb energy from the two Lycanroc and Ash, using it to heal Rockruff. Soon after, Rockruff evolved into a Dusk Form Lycanroc in the light of the setting green sun.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

The Ruins of Life first appeared in PASM12. Gladion attacked Kiawe in order to get the latter to reveal where the ruins were located. After Sun and Moon found the injured Kiawe, they transported him to the ruins and healed his injuries. Fearing that Gladion would be too powerful to defeat by normal means, Kiawe taught Sun about Z-Moves and how to perform them. After some practice, Sun successfully mastered how to perform the pose for Inferno Overdrive.

Shortly after, the group was ambushed by Gladion, who exited the ruins with an unconscious Tapu Lele in hand. Due to injuries it sustained from a battle with a Xurkitree at Lush Jungle, Tapu Lele had to rest to heal itself, preventing it from retaliating. Kiawe attempted to lend his Z-Ring for Sun to use against Gladion, but it was destroyed by Gladion's Type: Null. Although Gladion claimed Sun couldn't defeat him even with the Z-Move, Kahili appeared and noted that if he truly believed that statement, he wouldn't have bothered destroying the Z-Ring to begin with. With her golfing skills, Kahili delivered Sun his own Z-Ring created by Hala.

Although Sun's En's Inferno Overdrive didn't manage to defeat Type: Null in a single hit, it caused its confinement mask to start cracking. Gladion, fearing what would result from the mask breaking completely, chose to recall Type: Null and end the battle, even agreeing to leave Tapu Lele behind. After Sun had successfully delivered Tapu Lele the Mirage Berry that Moon had found for it, Tapu Lele challenged the group of Trainers to a battle. At first, none of their attacks seemed to even reach Tapu Lele, but after En evolved into Torracat and managed to land at hit on it, Tapu Lele recognized their strength and left.
