Acerola also forms a sync pair with her Banette. This pair can be obtained by reaching Friendship Level 100 with Acerola in the Trainer Lodge beginning on May 1, 2023. This pair can be raised to Masters EX star.png 6★ EX since its release, though this pair lacks an EX style.

Trivia

  • All versions of Acerola use special voice-over lines upon entering a team that contains certain Trainers (regardless of their partner Pokémon). Those Trainers include Lillie, Sophocles, Olivia, Nanu, Kahili, and Molayne.
  • Acerola is the only character available in the Trainer Lodge whose lodge pair could be upgraded to   6★ EX before the original pair.
  • Acerola & Palossand were the last 5★ sync pair to retroactively receive an EX style, aside from those obtained by exchanging a BP Sync Pair Super Voucher.
    • This gives them the largest gap of any initial 5★ character between their release and their gaining the ability to be raised to 6★ EX, at 1611 days. They have been playable since the game was released (on August 29, 2019), and they received their EX style on January 25, 2024.
  • According to Nanu, Acerola's Tapu Bulu is not the Ula'ula Island guardian that he knows. Olivia theorizes that it came from an Ultra Wormhole.

Origin

Acerola's design is based on her appearance in Pokémon Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon. Palossand is Acerola's signature Pokémon in the core series games. Palossand's Dex entry comes from Pokémon Ultra Sun.

Acerola uses a Banette when battling her in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. Banette's Dex entry comes from Pokémon Ultra Sun.

While Acerola is not seen using a Mimikyu in the core series games, it is the Totem Pokémon of her island challenge trial, and she owns a Shiny one nicknamed Mimikins in the anime. Mimikyu's Dex entries come from Pokémon Ultra Sun.

Acerola is not seen owning a Tapu Bulu outside this game, though it is the guardian deity of Ula'ula Island, which is Acerola's home island. Tapu Bulu's Dex entry comes from Pokémon Ultra Sun.
