Ula'ula Island in the anime

Ula'ula Island was first mentioned in The Guardian's Challenge!, when Kiawe said that he had delivered packages to the island early in the morning before coming to Pokémon School.

The island made its first proper appearance in Getting a Jump on the Competition!, where Ash, his classmates, Hala, and Team Rocket visited Mount Lanakila and took part in the Pokémon Sled Jump Games. Hala ultimately came out as the tournament's victor.

Team Rocket visited the island again in Why Not Give Me a Z-Ring Sometime?, where they were informed by Giovanni that the island kahuna of the island, Nanu, can give them a Z-Ring. Whilst on the island, they had their Darkinium Z stolen by a Gengar which appeared after Jessie broke a shrine. After chasing it and taking their Darkinium Z back, they were given a Z-Power Ring from Nanu and used it to make James's Mareanie perform the Z-Move Black Hole Eclipse, defeating the Shadow Pokémon. After that, Jessie received a Mimikium Z

Ash visited the island once more in Tough Guy Trials! for the grand trial with Nanu. He battled Nanu in a battle to determine whether or not Ash could take on the grand trial, and was defeated by him. However, in Guiding an Awakening!, he managed to win in a grand trial rematch and was rewarded with Lycanium Z. Following that, Ash left and returned to Melemele.

In the manga

Pokémon Adventures

Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon chapter

Sun, Moon, and Professor Kukui traveled to Ula'ula Island on their mission to deliver a Mirage Berry to Tapu Bulu. On their way, Kukui's yacht was approached by Professor Burnet and Lillie, who had come to join up with Sun's group. Before they could properly get together, a wild Bruxish attacked the yacht and caused everyone to pass out with its powers. While Sun managed to rescue Lillie, who was trapped at sea, he and Lillie ended up falling unconscious and washed up on a beach, where they were found by Acerola. Moon, Kukui, and Burnet were rescued by the Aether Foundation and were taken to Aether Paradise to recover.

Having arrived at Ula'ula Island, Sun took on the trial given to him by Acerola, and soon joined up with the Trial Captains at Po Town, only to find them being thrashed by the Ultra Beasts. The group of Ultra Beasts that were summoned at Po Town ended up breaking out of the town's barrier, proceeding to run amok throughout Ula'ula and causing destruction to various locations. Innocent civilians caught up in the danger were transported to Hokulani Observatory for shelter. Sun and Moon then met Anabel and Looker, where they also managed to deliver a Mirage Berry to Tapu Bulu.
