Just a quick update on the egg I had with me all this time I brought from Johto. It hatched today! You may have seen my tweet earlier.
As hoped by all Professors, Elm, Kukui and Burnet, it was a Pichu Egg! I’ve informed them all and the local Pokémon Center here in the north of Akala Island is currently performing a quick check on it.

Um.. it’s a bit hard to explain how that happened but today I got both, a Firium Z and a Waterium Z!
I was travelling around Route 5 here in Akala Island when suddenly I heard a Pokémon cry out loud. I rushed to where the sound came from and saw a weakened Salazzle defending a group of Salandit that was attacked by a huge Wishiwashi in its school form near one of the lakes here. It was a totem Pokémon, that much was clear.
I don’t know how these two started to fight in the first place but I felt like I had to go between them and clear it up.

Yesterday evening, I met Kahuna Olivia in a Malasada shop where she tried to explain to me what might be up with the Z-Ore and what could be done to turn it into a working Z-Power-Ring.
She told me, she didn’t except this to be this difficult. Normally, the Z-Ore can be used with pretty much any material they find in Alola. But this stone seems to behave differently. Not exactly opposite but close to.

At first she was also worried that I might not be able to use Z-Moves at all due to the other Z-Power-Ring breaking. But my power only split the material of the band and not the Z-Ore and the Z-Crystal. This means that the actual part used for the Z-Moves is compatible, therefore I should be able to use them to the fullest once this Z-Ore could be made into a proper Z-Power-Ring.
As invited by Olivia, I went up the Wela volcano and celebrated the Wela Fire Festival!
For this annual tradition, many trainers and locals from the Alola region gather on Mount Wela where the current Kahuna will give each and every fire Pokémon her and Wela Volcano’s blessing.

Today I visited Kahuna Olivia at her shop to check on the Z-Power-Ring she offered to build for me. She had contacted me again yesterday when I was just coming out of Diglett’s Tunnel that there seems to be a problem with the Z-Ring-Ore. She wanted to explain it to me today at the workshop.

Truth be told, I didn’t know that it was actually forbidden to freely use your own Pokémon to travel from place to place here in Alola. I did see many people riding on water Pokémon at the beach and often in the morning saw someone on a Charizard in the sky above, but it never occurred to me that there might actually be regulations in this nature focused region.

I don’t have a Pokémon on me right now that I could use to travel from island to island but when I did transfer my Sharpedo over, I got a quick warning to register it first as official Poké Ride here in Alola if I wanted to use it in that way.
Kahuna Hala didn’t hold back at all during our battle. His Crabominable and his Hariyama were worthy opponents against Torny, my Typhlosion. I guess, the fact that I only list one Pokémon here should tell you enough tho about the outcome. Yet let me give a bit more detail.
Referee Olivia, the Kahuna of Akala Island, declared our battle to begin and both, Hala and I didn’t waist a second to order our first moves. Torny and Crabominable clashed hard and instantly Crabominable was knocked out. Torny sure was serious to win this.

So today I did face off in my first grand trial against Melemele’s Kanuhna Hala. But I want to write what happened before the Trial in it’s own post first as I don’t have the energy left to write the whole day’s worth of stuff that happened. So “part 2” will follow tomorrow!
I arrived in Iki Town around midday, as Hala requested from me. He was just coming out of his house when I walked past the battle field in the center of the town.
We did greet each other with “Alola” before he told me, that we would take the path to the north of the town, the Mahalo Trail, that would lead us up the mountain to the Ruins of Conflict. There, the Kahuna will always pray to the Tapu to watch over them in the upcoming grand trial.
He was however not alone. Olivia, the Kahuna of Akala Island was with him, as she introduced herself to me. Apparently Professor Kukui told every Kahuna about me, not just Hala. And she wanted to see that “handsome trainer” herself… Not that I mind a compliment, I’m just not used to ’em.
Continue reading “Before the Grand Trial against Kahuna Hala”
Also she had some news for Hala about other trainers that are currently on the Island Challenge, as well as that she offered to be the referee for today’s grand trial.
Today I med yet another imposing figure of Melemele island, Kahuna Hala. I met him in Iki Town, a beautiful small village not too far away from Hau’oli City. I visited him in order to get his approval for the island challenge.
First of all however, Iki Town is so beautiful. To be honest, every town I did see here on Melemele Island looks just gorgeous. But this one is especially beautiful.
Continue reading “Kahuna Hala”
It has a very traditional look and as with every place here, is very inviting and colourful. It feels like it’s embedded into nature.
In the center of the town is a large stage where grand trials take place as well as other battle activities and festivals. I am looking forward to fighting there myself… But I’m jumping ahead.
While exploring Melemele Island today, I tried to see what I can find deep inside the jungle-like forest. Obviously lots of Pokémon! And a few regional variants as well!
Continue reading “Is that a Totem Pokémon?”
One that I want to talk about is that I suddenly was attacked by a big group of Alolan Rattata. I guess I stepped too deep into their territory…
