Oluolu (Japanese: オルオル ʻOluʻolu) is a recurring character who appeared in the Sun & Moon series. He is a famous Pokémon Base player from Melemele Island who plays for the Magikarp (Japanese: コイキング Koiking). He is also a graduate of the Pokémon School.



Oluolu debuted in Pulling Out the Pokémon Base Pepper!. Professor Kukui saw Ash's excitement after watching one of Oluolu's Pokémon Base games on television. As a result, he and Principal Oak arranged a Pokémon Base match for the students of the Pokémon School and their Pokémon, with the three adults commentating the match. When Team Rocket arrived, with Jessie wanting Oluolu's autograph, he agreed to participate in a game between the students and the evil trio. Just when it seemed like Team Rocket was about to win, Oluolu had his Snorlax perform the Z-Move Pulverizing Pancake, allowing the school team to win the match. Despite Team Rocket losing, Oluolu still offered Jessie his autograph as thanks for the good game, but before she could take it, Bewear showed up and carried the trio away.

In Night of a Thousand Poses!, Oluolu was seen playing Pokémon Base on TV. In The Dex Can't Help It!, he was playing Pokémon Base with a Druddigon when Rotom Pokédex ended up on TV.

Much like Samson Oak, Oluolu has a habit of making Pokémon gags, accompanied by a visual imitation of the Pokémon in question.
