Captain Kiawe’s Trial

  1. Go up the trial from the gate to find Captain Kiawe. Remember to heal your Pokemon through the Trial Guide by the gate.
  2. Since Captain Kiawe practices fire dancing, he will be challenging you to tell the dance sequences apart after he shows it to you.
The correct answers to the challenge are:
First dance 2nd Marowak
Second dance How they’re smiling
Third dance The Totem Pokemon.
  1. While you’re doing the first two dances, you will be challenged by a Lv.18 Alolan Marowak as well as a Lv.19 Magmar owned by the Hiker. Burn Heals and Super Potions will greatly benefit you here so make sure to bring some.
  2. After which, you will face up with the Totem Pokemon Alola Marowak, who is Lv.22.

Akala Island Part 2 Totem Battle: Marowak (Alola)

  1. At the start of the battle, Alola Marowak gains 2 stages up of Speed.
  2. If you fished for pokemon in Route 7, this battle shouldn’t be too hard for you. Alola Marowak is a Ghost/ Fire type which takes extra damage from water type attacks.
  3. You’ll probably have a Magikarp there and if you have it at level 20 and as Gyarados, you can easily sustain yourself from its attacks.
  4. But other Water Type Pokemon can defeat Alola Marowak and if you have Dark Type moves, it should deal heavy damage as well.
  5. Make sure you bring some Burn Heals to heal up the burns.
  6. After defeating him, you get a Firrium Z for Fire type Z moves. Not only that, you have a new pokeride: Charizard.
  7. Getting Charizard registered to your Ride Pager also means that you can now visit the Poke Pelago islands to get an endless supply of Poke Beans!
