    He's not using it. The scene of him with Tapu Koko was from the Ultra Beast 02 fight.

    I forgot Lycanroc existed and thought Minior would be her ace. I suppose that's her third.

    The fact that Olivia specialises throws a spanner in the works for those of us expecting trial captains for every type.

    It would depend on how they handle it, if they want to give them(Or her) two new Pokemon, then maybe Minior, otherwise she could end up with two old Pokemon which opens up plenty of possibilities. Or even have an Alolan form Pokemon too if Rock gets ones.

    Could be one for each type the Kahuna(And maybe any other special characters) use. Could possibly be 14 Captains.

    Locormus Can we please get the old forum back?

    Doubt it.. It would be nice, but I expect them to go full on Kalos and give each Kahuna just one Alolan pokémon. I suppose Hala's will be Crabrawler while Olivia's Alolan would be Lycanroc.

    I hope they don't give her an onix
    Brock had an onix
    Bruno was fighting type but got 2 for some reason so i'm mentioning it here
    Roxanne didn't initially have an Onix but her emerald rematches gave her one
    Roark has an onix

    Grant mercifully didn't have an onix but that's probably more because he only had 2 pokemon period.

    I am just so done with onix.

    I wonder if the Kahunas use the Alola Guardian Deity Pokémon then what pokemon will they replace it with once we capture the Alola Guardian Deity Pokémon? I am assuming that we get rematches with the Kahunas so I am wondering if they do use a new pokemon. I am also assuming we capture the Alola Guardian Deity Pokémon and there are no 2 sets of them as well. As for Hala I can see him using a Stufful or a Bewear as one of his pokemon besides Crabrawler or even a previous generation pokemon since Olivia uses a Nosepass as well.

    It dosen't confirm about Hala using Tapukoko yet.
    It is just the footage that showing them fighting UB-02.

    They did give Grant an Onix in the anime, though, because...Onix! Still, we know Nosepass and Lycanroc (I'm curious it its form will change with the version), but beyond that, Minior is most likely only a possibility if it is found on Akala, and when there's an observatory one island over, I don't know if that will happen. Other than that, we don't have any new Rock-Types revealed thus far, but a Rock Alola Form Mon would be nice, and a Fossil if we get any this Gen.

    Add in steelix for all the steel type gym leaders, (all 2 of them) and everybody on your list but roark upgrades their onix for some form of rematch.

    I knew I read it somewhere and it took a bit of digging to find again, but this: http://shelgon.tumblr.com/post/151734111644/pokémon-sun-and-moon-previews-details-gamespot (the second last bullet point) references a french twitter account from someone who got to play the first 2 hours of Sun and Moon.

    I can't find the actual tweet as I can't read French and don't have a translate function on my browser, but it supposedly says that Lillie gives your character a Z-stone at the beginning of the game, before you even get your starter. You don't know what it is though, it's just a 'mysterious' stone, like the one is XY. Now the type of stone is unconfirmed so it could be one for your starter or just a random pokemon, but we already have the starter pokemon types as captains and we don't know if they give you the corresponding Z-stone for their challenges or something else.

    The main point I was trying to say was that if this statement is true, then Z-stones don't have to come from captains and trials. They could be from important characters

    That's honestly what I think it will be. There will be 8 trial captains, 4 kahunas, and some equivalent to a champion or at least a final boss type like in BW. So you will get 12 of the z stones from those, and then 6 leftover that you get in some other ways.

    It was never confirmed that the Kahunas use the Deitys. What you saw was a cutscene where the UBs are attacking Hala, presumably and Tapu Koko comes to the rescue.

    What if it's Alolan onix? Has onix been ruled out already?

    Here's my updated predictions for all of the Island Challenges:

    Melemele Island:
    Captain Ilima(Normal), Totem: Gumshoos/Alolan Raticate

    Akala Island:
    Captain Sophocles(Electric), Totem: Vikavolt?
    Captain Mallow(Grass), Totem: Lurantis
    Captain Lana(Water), Totem: Wishiwashi
    Captain Kiawe(Fire), Totem: Turtonator?

    Ula Ula Island
    Captain 1(Bug), Forest to the north east
    Captain 2(Poison), Dojo like building to the south
    Captain 3(Steel), Observatory Facility to the north of the mountain, or the structures right of the mountain
    Captain 4(Ground), Desert to the right of the mountain

    Poni Island
    Captain 1(Dragon), black hot spring things remind me of dragons for some reason
    Captain 2(Flying), pretty much anywhere on the cliffs
    Captain 3(Fairy), the giant tree could be related to fairies?

    Kahuna Hala(Fighting), Melemele Island
    Kahuna Olivia(Rock), Akala Island
    Kahuna 1(Ice), Ula Ula Island
    Kahuna 2(Ghost), Poni Island

    Ohhh, turtonator would make sense for Kiawe's trial, even if he didn't have one in the anime.

    The shell trap move becomes a lot more useful in a SOS setting where you also have to deal with another pokemon.

    I'm having trouble thinking what it will call upon though, maybe some Totems don't call on Pokemon but instead resort to other SOS methods, maybe having a powered up Shell Trap for example

    SOS Battles are specifically calling up on other pokemon. Turtonator doesn't seem to have a connection to other pokemon like Gumshoos, Alolan Raticate or Lurantis, but there's no reason it couldn't summon any native fire types. It's the big boss pokemon of the area, it probably has enough clout to call anyone.

    Turtonator having a pre-evolution wouldn't surprise me.
    But yes, otherwise I don't see any problem with it summoning a couple of Torkoal or something.

    As for the Kahunas, I do see Ula Ula's being an Ice Specialist as I think the Ice Mountain is too much of a main part of the map to be just another location of a trial, but I could be wrong, Ice is my favourite type and I would love to see a Kahuna representing it!
