Welcome to Akala Island!
Welcome to Akala Island!

Kukui’s boat will dock at Heahea City on Akala Island. Olivia, Akala Island’s kahuna, will greet you when you land. She is with Mallow, one of the the island’s three Trial Captains.

Walk onwards and enter the Akala Island Tourist Bureau. If you have given any of your Pokemon nicknames, you can have it inspected by the Name Rater inside. Exit the Tourist Bureau. Don’t forget to grab a Rare Candy from the woman on the other side of the street.

Meet up with Lillie in front of the store and talk to her. She will either inspect the Ruins, or shop for new clothes. She will mention something about the guardian of Akala Island, Tapu Lele. She will also say that she is staying at the Tide Song hotel.

The road ahead will be blocked by a trainer riding a Stoutland, so you need to find another way. Walk back to the Pokemon Center’s corner, then head up to the hotel (marked with a red flag on your map.)

  • The Pokemon Center in Heahea City sells some TMs.

A couple will approach you when you get to the marker, and introduce themselves as Dexio and Sina. Dexio will challenge you in Pokemon Sun, while Sina will challenge you in Moon; you must win the challenge to get access to Route 4.

Winning against Sina will get you 2240 pokedollars,  while Dexio will hand over a key item – the Zygarde Cube. You can use this to collect Zygarde Cores and Cells throughout Alola in order to assemble the legendary Pokemon. Dexio and Sina will leave once the battle is over, so proceed to Route 4.

Dexio gives you the Zygarde Cube for winning against Sina.

Route 4 has large grassy areas with a variety of Pokemon and some trainers waiting for an easy win. The grassy areas offer a good opportunity if you need to level up your party, but take along several Potions to be safe.

From the starting point, move to the right. There’s a trainer waiting just after the grass, but you can easily slip by him. Get the Great Ball lying on the ground, between the flowery bush and the big plant.

Go up and into the path with a rock sticking out at the end. Inspect the rock to get a Tiny Mushroom.

Climb the slope to your left. There are green sparkles coming from the ground near one edge. Press A when you’re near it to get a Zygarde Cell. Sina will call you through the Rotom Dex when you get the Zygarde Cell.

You will find your first Zygrade Cell here.

Move towards the trainer off to your left, but stay close to the wall so he won’t see you. Get the Revive behind him and move on.

Go up and to your right. A trainer is walking back and forth a path; take the path below him and jump off the ledge. Pick up the Adrenaline Orb on the lower ground. Move back up to the path, and go down again.

A trainer in a cook’s uniform is waiting for you. Avoiding him is a little tricky because he’s in a narrow area, but it can be done by timing your movement while he’s not looking. He won’t be a hard opponent though, since he’s only carrying a Lv.14 Cutiefly.

Go right, then back down into the grassy area. Pick up the Energy Root at the end. A Berry Tree is at the other end of the path, but just like before, a Crabrawler will jump out at you the first time you try to get Berries.

Hau will run up to you as you are walking into Paniola town. He will challenge you to a battle, saying that Hala has also given him a Z-Ring. Hau won’t be much of a challenge thanks to the Exp.Share, but do try to take him out early on to keep him from using the Z-Ring. He will use a Pikachu plus either Dartrix, Torracat or Brionne.

Walk up when you enter Paniola Ranch. The old lady in green up ahead is a trainer, but can slip by her if you don’t feel like facing her yet. Go on to the man in overalls at the end of the path. He will take you to the Captain…

Mallow registers a Stoutland in your Ride Pager. Riding the Stoutland works much like the Item Finder in previous games, in that it lets you find buried items in the area. Mallow then tells you to go to Brooklet Hill, passing by Route 5, and say hi to her friend Lana.

Exit the Moomoo Paddock and go to the main road in Paniola Ranch. Go into the grassy area in front of you, then go along the fence to the corner to get a Zygarde Cell.  Walk back and climb up the tall ramp. Another Zygarde Cell is on the other side.

The girl inside the nursery will explain that unlike the Day Care buildings in other Pokemon games, the Alola Nurseries do not help your Pokemon get stronger or learn new moves. However, if you leave two Pokemon in the nursery, you may find an Egg. She will then ask you if you want to have an Egg she found. Eggs in Sun and Moon work the same way as other games in that you need to include them in your party for them to hatch.

Get an Egg from the girl in the Nursery.

Talk to the other girl in the nursery to get TM10 (Hidden Power). She can also tell the type of Hidden Power each member of your team will have if given TM10. Leave the nursery when you are done.

If you are searching for items with your Snoutland, it will alert you to an object buried in the area in front of the Nursery. Hop off the Snoutland and enter the space with the broken fence and barrels. Inspect the lower one to get an Oval Stone. Note that you won’t be able to get in the space while you’re on the Snoutland though.

The road will split near the Nursery. Since we are going to Brooklet Hill, take the road going up. Before proceeding though, get the Amulet Coin from behind the red truck parked near the signpost.

You can take pictures of Pokemon with the Poke Finder at the left side of the road. Go on to enter Route 5.

  1. At Paniola Ranch, you can also rarely find Miltank. Miltank isn’t currently listed under the Paniola Ranch – Pokemon Encounters section, so I figured I’d suggested this small edit. Anyway, overall, I’m happy with the site and it is very dependable. I want to say, thank you Samurai-Gamers for providing helpful free resources to the gaming community!
