Team Buddy Returns[]

Turtonator (Ride Pokémon lent to his challengers)

Island Trial[]

During the trial, challengers walk around the island and check on the generators scattered throughout. They must remove any Pokémon that are stealing power from the generators by firing at them with a Turtonator. Once the Pokémon are removed, the challenger must face a Totem Alolan Raichu, which can call in Plusle and Minun to help.


  • Sophocles is the only Trial Captain to feature a Pokémon that is not his designated typing.
