  • TRAINER! Good to see you. How’ve you been? Rested and relaxed, I hope?
  • I’ve been full of energy since I saw Tapu Fini. And as I thought more about that encounter, I realized that over these past few months, we’ve been seeing quite a few Pokémon that were first found in Alola.
  • And you—you’ve even been lucky enough to see all four of Alola’s island guardians!
  • I can’t say I’m completely free of envy, but I’m glad you were able to have those experiences.
  • After all, we professors owe much of our learning to adventurous Trainers like yourself!
  • I wonder if our friendship would be as fruitful if our roles were reversed... I’d sure like to hope so! Haha!
  • Keep exploring, TRAINER. You never know what you might find!
2nd Part
Professor Willow icon.png
  • Welcome back, TRAINER! Look at that—you’ve caught all of Alola’s first partner Pokémon!
  • They make for quite the iconic trio.
  • Let’s continue our Alola-inspired research today!
  • Which of Alola’s islands piques your interest the most, TRAINER?
3rd Part
Professor Willow icon.png

Melemele Island

  • So you’re interested in Melemele Island, eh? No surprise there—it’s one of my favorites as well.
  • Though perhaps that isn’t saying much... They’re all my favorites, really! Haha!
  • As we’ve discussed, Melemele Island is where many Trainers in Alola begin the region’s island challenge.
  • There’s even a Trainers’ School there, where aspiring young Trainers can make friends and study up on all things Pokémon.
  • In the spirit of Melemele Island, why don’t you go meet some new Pokémon and send some Gifts to your friends?

Akala Island

  • So you’re interested in Akala Island, eh? No surprise there—it’s one of my favorites as well.
  • Though perhaps that isn’t saying much... They’re all my favorites, really! Haha!
  • As I mentioned before, Akala Island offers a variety of geological features, including a volcano, fishing spots, and even waterfalls!
  • I like to take a stroll when my mind gets mired in a problem, and it sounds like Akala Island would be a great place for that.
  • In that spirit, why don’t you take a stroll yourself? I’ll be here when you get back.

Ula’Ula Island

  • So you’re interested in Ula’Ula Island, eh? No surprise there—it’s one of my favorites as well.
  • Though perhaps that isn’t saying much... They’re all my favorites, really! Haha!
  • As we’ve discussed, Ula’Ula Island is home to Mount Lanakila, the highest peak in all of Alola! But did you know the summit of Mount Lanakila also houses Alola’s very own Pokémon League?
  • It’s a place many Trainers aspire to reach, and doing so requires forging powerful bonds with Pokémon.
  • In that spirit, why don’t you head out and find some new Pokémon partners, TRAINER?

Poni Island

  • So you’re interested in Poni Island, eh? No surprise there—it’s one of my favorites as well.
  • Though perhaps that isn’t saying much... They’re all my favorites, really! Haha!
  • Did you know that Poni Island is home to the Battle Tree, Alola’s preeminent battle facility? Strong Trainers gather there to test their teams against each other.
  • I’ve heard you can even meet some Pokémon League Champions there on occasion! The things I could learn from them...
  • In the spirit of Poni Island—and as an act of public service—why don’t you test your battling skills against Team GO Rocket, TRAINER?
4th Part
Professor Willow icon.png

Melemele Island

  • Welcome back! Did your friends like their Gifts?

Akala Island

  • Welcome back! How was your adventure? Did you see anything new? You’ll have to tell me all about it!

Ula’Ula Island

  • Welcome back! Let me take a look at the Pokémon you’ve returned with... I bet with some training, you and your Pokémon would be ready to take on Alola’s Pokémon League yourselves!

Poni Island

  • Welcome back! I knew you’d have no trouble with Team GO Rocket. You never do!

All

  • I don’t know about you, but I’ve had a great time getting to learn more about Alola, its Pokémon, and even its guardian deities.
  • If there’s one thing I love about Pokémon, it’s that there’s always something new to learn!
  • But to be honest with you, I was hoping we’d have a better idea by now of what attracted Alola’s guardian deities here.
  • They usually spend their time protecting Alola, so what could’ve spurred them to come here?
  • Could it be that they sensed something dangerous nearby that may threaten Alola? It would have to be something extraordinary—maybe even beyond our current understanding of Pokémon.
  • Another daunting yet fascinating question for us to tackle together, TRAINER.
  • Whatever comes next, I know the two of us will overcome it.
  • For now, continue your island research. I’ll keep trying to spot the guardian deities!
  • I’ll be in touch again soon. For now, let’s GO!
