Sun (Japanese: サン Sun) is a main character in the manga series Pokémon Adventures.


Sun is a Trainer originally from the Kanto region who aims to collect 100 million yen. To do so, he takes on various jobs in order to raise the money he needs. Due to his main line of work being delivery, everyone calls him "Sun the Delivery Boy" (Japanese: 運び屋サン Sun the Courier). For his endeavors to collect money, he is given the title of "Saver" (貯める者 Saver).

Sun in his first outfit

Sun is first seen as a child talking to his great-grandfather over a video phone. Sun's great-grandfather attempts to show some Alolan Meowth off, but their selfish personalities lead to them ignoring him. The sight of the Alolan Meowth give Sun the desire to visit the Alola region one day.

In the present day, Sun takes on a part-time job of removing wild Pyukumuku from a beach. He accidentally throws one into the face of a girl named Moon, angering her. They are interrupted by the two Team Skull Grunts that hired Sun for the job in the first place. The male Grunt gives Sun the money for the job, but proceeds to refuse to pay Sun when his Salandit notices a Pyukumuku that had not been removed. Moon sees through this lie and points out that the female Grunt slipped the extra Pyukumuku onto the ground when no one was looking. The male Grunt silences Moon by having his Salandit his her with its and then lies that the action broke Salandit's tail, which meant Sun would have to work to pay its medical bills. Angered, Sun destroys the cast around his leg and uses his Alolan Meowth, Cent, to defeat the Grunts, forcing them to run away. Although annoyed that he can no longer work on the beach, Sun decides to dry Moon's wet clothes with the heat of his Litten, Dollar. He then summons a Tauros with a Ride Pager to help Moon deliver a package to Professor Kukui.

Sun sets out to Professor Kukui's, only to come back after realizing that he forgot to take the item that needed to be delivered. Moon reveals that the delivery is actually herself and the Rotom she had with her. Sun then takes Moon through Hau'oli City's Shopping District, where they meet the locals. When Sun's injured foot begins to start hurting again, he is left unable to move. Moon decides to help Sun with her medical skills. She searches through a collection of healing items, but is unable to find the Figy Berry she needs to help Sun. After finding the Berry in a tree being pecked at by wild Pikipek, Moon pulls out a bow with a Poké Ball-tipped arrow and fires it at the Berry to knock it to the ground.

With the Berry, Moon heals Sun's injury. When Sun asks why she didn't use a Pokémon, Moon tries to explain, but is interrupted when Sun notices something in the sky. Moon turns around to find that Tapu Koko, the guardian deity of Melemele Island, has appeared before them. Tapu Koko proceeds to attack the two, forcing Sun to battle it. After a short battle, Tapu Koko escapes and leaves behind a Sparkling Stone. Afterward, Sun and Moon arrive at Professor Kukui's laboratory, only to find the Professor bursting through the roof after testing out the moves of his Rowlet and Popplio.

After Sun introduces Moon and Professor Kukui to each other, Moon hands over Rotom, to Kukui's delight. Kukui reveals that he wanted Rotom, which is not found in Alola, because it is capable of combining with Sun's Pokédex. When Rotom attempts to go inside the Pokédex, it freaks out and runs away, which Sun reveals is due to him constantly mishandling the Pokédex, causing it to become dirty and smell bad. Angered, Kukui beats Sun up and tells him to go and retrieve Rotom while he cleans the Pokédex. Later that night, an injured Sun returns to Kukui's house, having successfully retrieved Rotom. After Moon heals Sun's wounds for free, she notices a fire coming from Iki Town, which Sun reveals is due to a festival that will be held there the next day.

The next day, Sun is asked by a sleep-deprived Kukui why he wasn't informed about Sun's encounter with Tapu Koko the previous day. Kukui reveals that the Island Kahuna Hala asked to be reported about any sightings of Tapu Koko. To Sun's annoyance, Kukui also reveals that he decided to enter Sun in the battle that will be held in Iki Town's festival. At the festival, Sun does some part-time work by helping people place their stalls, but expresses annoyance that he is forced to put off any potential jobs due to being entered in the tournament.

In the first battle of the first round of the tournament, Sun is paired up against the Masked Royal, but he refuses to take the battle seriously due to the lack of a monetary reward. When Hala reveals the prize for winning the tournament, an island challenge amulet, Sun assumes he can sell the amulet for money and becomes motivated to battle seriously. After a tough battle, Dollar defeats the Masked Royal's Munchlax, giving Sun the win and allowing him to advance to the next round. The next battle is interrupted by the arrival of Team Skull's leader, Guzma, who had come to the festival in order to get payback on Sun for his victory over the Team Skull Grunts at Hau'oli Beachfront. Guzma then takes Grunt A's place in the tournament, putting him as Sun's opponent in the next battle.

In the first battle of the second round of the tournament, Sun faces off against Guzma. Through the use of tactics, Guzma's Masquerain easily defeats Dollar. With only one Pokémon left, Sun sends out Cent to face Masquerain, which it manages to defeat. With both parties down to one team member, Guzma sends out his final Pokémon, Golisopod. Golisopod proves to be a powerful opponent and even manages to break Sun's arm when he tries to defend Cent from an attack. When Golisopod accidentally dirties the coin on Cent's head with its claws, Cent flies into a rage, giving it the strength to defeat Golisopod, allowing Sun to move to the final round. Angered by this defeat, Guzma and the Grunts leave the area.

Sun in his Riding Wear

Afterward, Moon bandages Sun's broken arm to let it heal. In the second battle of the second round of the tournament, Sun watches as Moon faces off against Gladion. To Sun and Gladion's surprise, the normally serious pharmacist Moon is actually a lover of Poison-type Pokémon. After Moon is defeated, Sun faces off against Gladion in the final round of the tournament. Gladion's Type: Null proves to be a powerful opponent, both in offense and in defense with its iron mask. Sun tries to defeat Type: Null by shooting Dollar's fire hairballs into the mask, but Gladion sees through this strategy and tells Sun to stop fooling around. Angered by Gladion claiming that he doesn't have a legitimate motivation for participating in the tournament, Sun angrily declares that he will obtain the money he needs at any cost. As he does this, the cast on Sun's arm unravels, revealing the Sparkling Stone underneath. A powerful energy shoots out from a crack in the sky and lands on the Sparkling Stone before moving towards Dollar. The energy powers up Dollar's Ember, allowing it to create a powerful sea of flames that defeats Gladion's Type: Null. The strain of the attack causes Sun to pass out as he wonders just what move it was that Dollar used.

Later, Sun is awakened by the blinding light of the sun. After questioning what happened to the tournament, Sun notices that he is in possession of the island challenge amulet. Overjoyed with his apparent victory, Sun decides to go exchange the amulet for money, but begins to question where he is. To Sun's shock, a talking Pokédex possessed by a Rotom reveals that they are currently on a yacht driven by Professor Kukui in the middle of the sea.

As they travel, Sun talks to Hala over a video phone. Hala reveals that he has taken Sun's Sparkling Stone as fixing it up for him. Kukui reveals that the guardian deities of Alola have been enraged by something and the only way to calm them down is deliver a Mirage Berry to each guardian. For that reason, Kukui and Island Kahunas have tasked Sun with delivering the Berries to each guardian. Although Sun is reluctant at first, he quickly accepts once he hears that he will be paid for each delivery. Moon introduces Sun to the Rotom Pokédex, which is the form the Rotom she delivered took after combining with a spare Pokédex that Moon received from Professor Kukui. Rotom tells Sun that it has decided to join with Moon instead of him and gives Sun his Pokédex back.

Afterward, the group arrives at Heahea City on Akala Island. There, they are greeted by Kiawe, Mallow, and Lana, the Trial Captains of Akala Island. The three reveal that they are unsure if Sun is worthy enough to take part in the Island challenge and wish to battle him to see if he's worthy. After a short battle, Kiawe takes a liking to Sun and accepts him as worthy enough to take part in the Island challenge, but Lana is still unsure and has the group follow her to Brooklet Hill.

The group travels to Route 5, where Lana reveals that she wants Sun to defeat the Totem Pokémon that is causing havoc at Brooklet Hill. After arriving at the trial site, Sun slips on a boardwalk and drops a one yen coin into the water. Sun tries to search for the missing yen, but is unable to see in the dark water. He is helped by a wild Wishiwashi, who found the coin and returns it to Sun. Finding the Wishiwashi cute and not wanting it to be attacked by the Totem, Sun decides to keep the Wishiwashi and names it Quarter. Sun decides to put off catching Quarter until he finishes the trial and instead asks it to help him find the Totem. After several hours of being lead around the area, Sun gets annoyed at Quarter constantly leading him to the wrong Pokémon. Angered, Dollar tries to attack Quarter, causing it to get scared and flee. After Sun calms Dollar down, a school of Wishiwashi begin to circle around Lapras before combining into their School Form and leaping out of the water. As the School Form Wishiwashi looms down on him, Sun realizes that Quarter and the other Wishiwashi are actually the Totem.

Totem Wishiwashi's combined might forces Sun to run away in order to avoid its attacks. With Dollar knocked out, Sun is forced to switch it out for Cent but is hesitant to attack the Totem due to it being controlled by Quarter. Sun's behavior angers Lana, who reveals that she actually trained the Totem Pokémon, but it became too strong and began attacking tourists at Brooklet Hill. Lana chastises Sun for underestimating her skills as a Trainer due to her usual shy and meek demeanor. Hearing this, Sun realizes that, like Lana, Quarter is strong despite its weak-looking appearance and that he shouldn't go easy on it despite that. Sun commands Cent to attack the Totem's left eye, where Quarter is located, and defeats it, causing the entire school to break apart into several Solo Form Wishiwashi. To Sun's shock, Lana reverts to her usual personality and tells him that he passed the trial. Afterward, Sun officially adds Quarter to his team.

Sun and Dollar activating a Z-Move for the first time

Later, Sun and Lana are informed by Mallow that Kiawe was attacked by someone. They travel by sea to Konikoni City, where they meet back up with Moon and Mallow. The four travel to Memorial Hill, where they find an injured Kiawe lying on the ground, defeated. A group of Team Skull Grunts appear and claim that they were the ones who attacked Kiawe. Angered by this, Lana and Mallow tell Sun and Moon to tend to Kiawe's wounds while they battle the Grunts. Kiawe reveals that the Grunts weren't the ones who defeated him and it was actually a far more powerful Trainer. Kiawe tells Sun that he had been thinking about the attack Dollar used at the Iki Town festival and pulls out a Firium Z from Dollar's fur to reveal that it was the source of the attack.

Lana and Mallow tell Sun and the others to head to the Ruins of Life in order to check up on Tapu Lele while they stay behind. Sun agrees and sends out Tauros to take him, Moon, and Kiawe to the ruins. After Kiawe's injuries are healed by Moon, Kiawe tells Sun about Z-Moves and how to use them. With practice, Sun masters the pose for Inferno Overdrive, which Kiawe says will be needed to face the person who attacked him. Due to Sun not possessing a Z-Ring required to use Z-Moves, Kiawe decided to let Sun borrow his Z-Ring. Before Sun can take the Z-Ring, they are attacked by Gladion, who is revealed to have joined Team Skull as an Enforcer. The group notices that Gladion managed to easily kidnap Tapu Lele, which Moon attributes to Tapu Lele still being injured from an earlier battle with a mysterious creature at Lush Jungle. Moon assumes Gladion must need the deities to fight off the mysterious creatures and suggests that they work together in order to face them, but Sun refuses to work with someone who chooses to work with villains and decides to defeat Gladion with his newly learned Z-Move. Kiawe attempts to hand his Z-Ring over to Sun, but it is destroyed by Gladion's Type: Null.

Gladion reveals that the reason he forfeited the Iki Town tournament was because Hala declared Sun the winner after discovering he was in possession of a Sparkling Stone. Although Gladion claims that Sun wouldn't have won even with the Z-Move, a voice appears and points out that if Gladion truly believed that, he wouldn't have destroyed Kiawe's Z-Ring. The voice is revealed to be Kahili, who uses her Pokémon to attack Type: Null before delivering Sun his finished Z-Ring. Sun puts on the Z-Ring and prepares to use it to defeat Gladion.

The attack succeeds, causing Type: Null's mask to start breaking. Gladion, fearing what would happen if the mask shatters completely, switches out for his Porygon. Sun attempts Inferno Overdrive again, but the attack fails, leading to Dollar's defeat. Gladion decides to give up on capturing Tapu Lele, calling it too weak to help him fight the mysterious creatures. Gladion reveals that the cracks in the sky are not an opening but an exit, and that something must be trying to break free into their world. After Gladion leaves, Tapu Lele wakes up and Sun delivers the Mirage Berry to it.

As thanks for healing its injuries, Tapu Lele asks the group to allow it to test their strength. Sun, Moon, Kiawe, and Kahili accept and send out their Pokémon to face the guardian deity. Despite the combined effort of their attacks, Tapu Lele proved to be a powerful opponent and easily blows their Pokémon away. When Sun refuses to give up, Dollar evolves into a Torracat and manages to land a hit on Tapu Lele. While the attack doesn't harm Tapu Lele, it acknowledged their determination and flies off.

Afterward, Moon wonders what Gladion meant about the cracks in the sky being exists. She decides to consult the Rotom Pokédex about it, but the only answer it can give is "Necrozma."

Later at Konikoni City, Sun watched Moon face a Totem Lurantis in order to train and get strong enough to face the mysterious creatures. After defeating Lurantis, Sun and the others head to Mallow's restaurant to talk with Professor Kukui's wife, Professor Burnet, over a video phone. They talk to each other over the various cracks in the sky that have been spotted around Alola and speculate that Nebby may have been the cause. Professor Kukui tells Burnet to take Lillie with her to Ula'ula Island, as that's the next destination where Sun and Moon will deliver the next Mirage Berry.

Later, Professor Burnet and Lillie meet up with Sun's group, who had boarded Professor Kukui's yacht to travel to Ula'ula Island. The group is attacked by a wild Bruxish, which uses its psychic powers to give everyone headaches. With Sharpedo Jet and Quarter's help, Sun defeats Bruxish and saves Lillie, but ends up falling unconscious. Sun and Lillie later wash up on a beach on Ula'ula Island, where they are found by Acerola, who takes the pair to the Aether House to recuperate. After waking up, Sun is properly introduced to Lillie, who explains how the Aether House serves as an orphanage for children and Pokémon. When Sun sees Acerola, he notices the symbol in her hair, revealing that she is another Trial Captain.

After Acerola properly introduces herself, she takes Sun and Lillie to site of the former Thrifty Megamart. Acerola gave Sun the task of taking a picture of the Totem Pokémon that lived inside the building. Shortly after entering, Sun and Lillie were attacked by the Totem Pokémon, a Mimikyu, which destroyed the camera Acerola gave him for the trial. While Sun had Dollar battle Mimikyu, the Rotom Pokédex appeared and revealed that it was accidentally taken by Sun when he went to save Lillie from the Bruxish earlier. With the Poké Finder function, Sun used Rotom as a replacement camera. Mimikyu's speed prevented Sun from taking the picture, forcing him to have Dollar use Inferno Overdrive in the hopes that the Z-Move's power would keep Mimikyu stunned long enough for him to take the shot. While the attack successfully hit, all it did was break Mimikyu's disguise, leaving the Totem completely unscathed.

With the Z-Move wasted, Sun is forced to defend himself against Mimikyu's relentless attacks. Noticing that Mimikyu only focused its attacks on him instead of Dollar, Sun realized that he actually angered Mimikyu when he insulted its appearance. Rotom translated Mimkyu's speech, revealing that it disguised itself as Pikachu as a way to get people to like it, only for its attempts to fail. While he refused to take back his honest opinion about its appearance, Sun told Mimikyu that it shouldn't hide itself away from those who reject it and instead venture out to find true friends who would accept it. Mimikyu accepted Sun's words and agreed to join his team, where it received the nickname Franc. Afterward, Rotom took Franc's picture and sent it to Acerola, officially completing Sun's second trial.

With his task done, Sun decided to deliver the next Mirage Berry to Ula'ula's guardian deity, Tapu Bulu, only to realize the Berries were on Professor Kukui's yacht when they were attacked by Bruxish. Having no choice, Sun activated Stoutland Search in hopes of finding another Mirage Berry. As they searched, Sun thanked Rotom for its help with translating Franc's speech. During the conversation, Rotom revealed that it also spoke to Nebby and discovered that it is connected to the guardian deities. Believing that Nebby could make calming the Deities down easier, Sun asked Nebby to come out of Lillie's bag, only for both to discover that it had evolved into the unresponsive Cosmoem.

Later, Sun and Lillie returned to Aether House upon Acerola's request. After going to sleep, Sun is awakened by the sound of his Spoink piggy bank receiving the payment for the delivery to Tapu Lele. After making sure no one else was around to see, Sun counted the amount of money he had and discovered he was only ten million yen away from his goal. A noise coming from somewhere else causes Lillie to wake up, forcing Sun to quickly hide his money away from sight. Shortly after, the Headmaster Oranguru of the Aether House enters the room while in battle with an Espeon and a Glaceon. The Trainers of the two Pokémon reveal themselves to be Sina and Dexio from the Kalos region, who apologize for breaking in.

Sun's Spoink piggy bank

Sina and Dexio request that Sun assist them in finding the Zygarde Cells and Cores scattered across Alola. While Sun is initially reluctant, he agrees after being told he'll be paid one hundred thousand yen for each of the forty Cells they need, which would bring him four million yen closer to his goal. In order to complete this task, Sun is given a Zygarde Cube capable of storing the Cells and Cores as well as a Mecha Fletchling so that he may keep in touch with Sina and Dexio. Fearing that putting Lillie in danger may cause Nebby to use its powers again, Sun has Lillie stay behind and heads off to Po Town to begin his search.

Immediately after arriving at Po Town, Sun finds Kiawe, Lana, Mallow, Acerola, Ilima, and Hau in battle with three mysterious creatures: Pheromosa, Celesteela, and Guzzlord. Guzma reveals that the mysterious creatures are actually called Ultra Beasts, and they are under his command. The Ultra Beasts easily outclass the Captains' Pokémon, but when his opponents refuse to quit fighting, Guzma pulls out another Cosmog and has it open more Ultra Wormholes to summon more beasts. As the beasts continue to attack even the Skull Grunts, Gladion appears, demanding that Guzma tell him who gave him the Cosmog and Ultra Beasts.

After revealing his true goal is to destroy the Ultra Beasts, Gladion sends out Type: Null to battle the beasts Guzma summoned. Despite the Captains' Pokémon failing to even scratch the Ultra Beasts, Type: Null is easily able to harm them due to the Aether Foundation specifically creating it to fight beasts. To everyone's shock, Gladion reveals that the Aether Foundation's president, Lusamine, is the one who gave Guzma his beasts and is secretly using him to fuel her desire for a paradise filled with nothing but Ultra Beasts and herself. Guzma denied the accusation that he was being used, only for a Nihilego to grab him and drag him towards an Ultra Wormhole. Moon attempted to rescue Guzma, but was stopped by a Xurkitree. Sun managed to free Moon with his team, but ended up swatted away by Xurkitree, causing him to crash-land onto a car.

Eventually, the beasts manage to break free from Po Town's barrier, allowing them to wreak havoc on all of Ula'ula. While Moon chose to stay behind and tend to Sun's wounds, the Captains head off to various different locations to evacuate any innocent civilians caught in the beasts' attacks. After Sun is healed, he revealed to Moon about his new job of collecting Zygarde's component parts. When Moon noted that Sun reacted oddly when Gladion mentioned the Aether Foundation, she asked Sun if he had a connection with the organization. Sun revealed that the real reason he needed to collect money was to pay off the Aether Foundation, who had stolen an island owned by his great-grandfather. Before he can explain any further, Sun and Moon are approached by Anabel and Looker of the International Police.

Anabel questioned Sun and Moon on what they know about the Ultra Beasts, but Sun was wary of the International Police, as he found their desire to protect and take in Pokémon used in crimes too similar to the goals of the Aether Foundation. When Anabel offered to pay Sun for his cooperation, he agreed to help and received six million yen as compensation. Moon then told Anabel about each of the Ultra Beasts that have appeared in Alola recently while Anabel revealed their actual species names as well as their codenames. The group is then attacked by Blacephalon, a new beast that emerged from one of the Ultra Wormholes. Together, Sun and Anabel battle Blacephalon and stun it long enough for Anabel to attempt a capture.

Blacephalon immediately broke out of the Poké Ball, revealing that they do not work as well on Ultra Beasts as they do regular Pokémon. Blacephalon retaliated by using Mind Blown on the group, forcing Anabel to get everyone out of the way. Sun and the others are saved by Tapu Bulu, who used a large gust of wind to blow both Blacephalon and its attack far away. Afterward, Kukui and Burnet arrive with the Mirage Berry meant for Tapu Bulu. Sun is initially reluctant to give the Berry away, as he felt that Tapu Bulu had no reason to help humans as it was a human who was responsible for the Ultra Beasts appearing in Alola in the first place. Moon disagreed with this statement and argued that if humans were the cause for the danger, then they should take responsibility by helping fix it as well. Sun and Moon then give the Mirage Berry to Tapu Bulu, which it readily accepts.

Later, Sun, Moon, and Anabel traveled to Poni Island. With Kukui and Burnet off on other business, Sun was left without any clues as to where to look for Tapu Fini, Poni's guardian deity. Hoping to find any kind of information as soon as possible, Sun went on ahead and landed on Poni Beach, only to be attacked by a pair of wild Crabrawler. The Crabrawler stole the Mirage Berry meant for Tapu Fini and ran off with it, forcing Sun to chase after them. Sun followed the Crabrawler to their hideout at Seafolk Village, only to find it littered with more Crabrawler. When Sun attempted to get the Mirage Berry back, the Crabrawler's leader, a Crabominable, attacked Sun and injured him to point where he could no longer move. Sun was rescued by Hapu, who used her Mudsdale to battle the attacking Crabrawler mob as well as summoning Machamp Shove to carry Sun while he can't move.

While Hapu fought, Sun had Machamp try to retrieve the Mirage Berry, but Crabominable easily knocked Machamp and Sun away into the sea. While the momentary distraction allowed Hapu to blind Crabominable with Mudsdale's Mud-Slap, the Woolly Crab Pokémon still showed the ability to accurately hit Mudsdale's weak points by firing off its pincers. By having Machamp shake the boat they were on with its strength, Sun rescued Mudsdale from Crabominable's next attack, allowing it to win the battle. With the Mirage Berry retrieve, the only task left was to deliver it to Tapu Fini, who had been watching the battle the entire time. Due to his injuries, Sun requested that Hapu deliver the Berry in his place, which she accepted. To Hapu's surprise, Tapu Fini presented her with a Sparkling Stone, making her the next Kahuna of Poni Island.

Afterward, Hapu decided to travel to her deceased grandfather's grave on Vast Poni Canyon in order to show him that she became a Kahuna like he was in the past. Seeing Hapu's love for her grandfather inspired Sun to travel with her. As they traveled, the Crabominable from before followed them in the hopes of joining Hapu's team. As she had her own team to raise, Hapu rejected Crabominable's request and suggested it join Sun's team instead. Crabominable reluctantly agreed to be captured and was given the nickname Dong. Hapu then revealed she was in possession of the Moon Flute and asked Sun if he was capable of playing it. Later, Sun and Hapu witnessed Nebby fly to the top of Vast Poni Canyon, where it met with another Cosmoem.

Hapu decided to postpone the grave visit and follow the Cosmoem to the Poni Altar. As they traveled, Sun learned about Solgaleo and Lunala, two Legendary Pokémon said to have come to Alola from another world, similar to the Ultra Beasts. Hapu also revealed the Moon Flute, along with the Sun Flute, is meant to be played at the Altar. The two are then attacked by Aether Foundation Employees, who demanded that Hapu come with them to the Poni Altar. Before they could attack, the Employees are defeated by a Xurkitree landing on top of them, having already been defeated by Gladion, who had Lillie with him.

While Sun was surprised to learn Gladion and Lillie were siblings, Hapu was surprised to see Lillie with the Sun Flute. Gladion couldn't play the Sun Flute, but Sun was able to, much to the latter's confusion. The guardian deities of Alola then appeared and took Sun and the flutes away. Sun, along with Moon, was taken to the Poni Altar, where he was given the Sun Flute while Moon received the Moon Flute. While Sun struggled to play properly at first, Moon realized the flutes worked only for them because of their promise to Tapu Bulu. Remembering how they felt when they made the promise, Sun and Moon successfully played the flutes, causing the Poni Altar to react.

The Altar released a bright light that caused Nebby and the other Cosmoem to evolve into Lunala and Solgaleo, respectively. After Anabel explained what the two Legendary Pokémon are and their connection with Cosmog, Anabel received a call from Looker, who reported that a large number of Ultra Beasts emerged from Po Town and have made their way to Poni Island. While Moon, Anabel, Gladion, and Hapu fought off the beasts, Sun confronted Faba, demanding that he return the island the Aether Foundation took from his deceased great-grandfather five years ago. Using his Spoink piggy bank, Sun gave Faba all the money he had collected and promised that once he finished his two other jobs, he would have everything he needed. Faba revealed to Sun that the island had already been converted into Aether Paradise, and the 100 million yen he jokingly suggested Sun gather back then wouldn't nearly be enough to return the island back to its previous state. Afterward, a giant Ultra Wormhole appeared before everyone, with a large hand emerging from it. The hand grabbed Solgaleo, taking control of its body. The possessed Solgaleo captured Sun with its tail and jumped into the wormhole while Moon and Nebby followed after it.

At some point, Sun and Moon were separated from Nebby and Solgaleo and ended up trapped in the Ultra Deep Sea for six months. As they weren't in Alola, the native Nihilego mostly left the two alone. After changing into a new set of clothes, Sun and Moon chased after Lunala after it appeared flying above them. They went to where Lunala landed and found that it was being ridden by Dulse and Zossie of the Ultra Recon Squad. Dulse revealed to Zossie that he had met with the Aether Foundation to create Poké Balls capable of capturing the Ultra Beasts. Overhearing this, Sun demanded to know what the two strangers' connection with the Aether Foundation was.


Sun's Pokémon are all named after real world currencies. In-universe, Sun names his Pokémon simply based on their personality or physical appearance. The only exception is Dollar, who was explicitly stated to be named after a currency.

Machamp is Sun's sixth known Ride Pokémon. It was first used to carry Sun around after he was injured by a wild Crabominable.
