How to trigger SOS calls

  • Prepare a Pokemon holding a Leppa Berry and knows Switcheroo.

Trubbish can be caught in the grass patches of Malie City Outer Cape. To remove Trubbish’s other moves, proceed to the Hau’Oli City Pokemon Center and talk to the Move Deleter inside. In order to teach Recycle to Trubbish, head to Lanakila Mountain’s Pokemon Center and surrender a Heart Scale to the old woman there. Alolan Meowth can be found in Hau’Oli city’s grass. Level it up until it evolves into Persian. Return to the old woman and give her another Heart Scale to teach Switcheroo to the Alolan Persian. Finally, give it a Leppa Berry to hold.
