Appendix:Sun and Moon walkthrough/Section 9

Royal Avenue

 
Royal Avenue

Royal Avenue began as a side road that ran along the Battle Royal Dome, but the venue's popularity led to the area being developed into its current appearance. The space now includes a Pokémon Center, Malasada Shop, and Thrifty Megamart, as well. The street connects Route 6 in the west to Route 7 in the northeast.


Pokémon Center

The right-side clerk at the Poké Mart offers TM07 (Hail), TM11 (Sunny Day), TM18 (Rain Dance), and TM37 (Sandstorm) for sale. These moves alter the weather and can be just the thing to help win a difficult battle, but at $50,000 each it will take some time to collect all four.

Malasada Shop

The malasada shop is located in the southeast part of Royal Avenue. The left attendant sells both Sour and Dry varieties for $200 each. Other shops elsewhere in Alola offer different flavors. The right attendant sells Big Malasada for $350. With high demand for the fried food, the shop sells only one Big Malasada to each customer per day.

Battle Royal Dome

Head toward the Battle Royal Dome to find Gladion, who mumbles to himself before walking inside. Follow him inside to be met by a mysterious, masked man, who introduces himself as the Masked Royal. His goal is to teach Trainers about the battle format that has been passed down in Alola for generations: the Battle Royal. Four Trainers choose three Pokémon each, then send one at a time into a free-for-all battle. When one Trainer's team is unable to continue, the battle ends. The winning Trainer is the one who has defeated the most Pokémon and also has the most remaining Pokémon.

After explaining the rules, the Masked Royal suggests a practice battle. Hau volunteers upon hearing this, and the Royal calls Gladion over to participate as well. The Masked Royal uses Rockruff, Gladion chooses Type: Null, and Hau sends in the second-stage of his first partner Pokémon.

Afterward in the lobby, another stranger introduces himself as Kiawe, the Fire captain. Having just witnessed the battle, he hopes that you bring that same fire and burn up his trial on the peak of Wela Volcano Park.

Thrifty Megamart

The Thrifty Megamart is located to the east of the Battle Royal Dome. A clerk near the entrance hands out a discount coupon, which refunds 50% of the total price of each purchase made here. The clerk at the nearest checkout lane offers only an odd souvenir, the center-right clerk has a selection of status-healing items, and the center-left clerk offers several different types of Poké Ball.

The Veteran behind the far-left counter does not offer anything for sale, but only suggests returning to him after becoming the strongest Trainer in Alola.

A clerk near the far-left counter gives out one random type of Berry per day. Possible varieties include Tamato Berry, Rawst Berry, Oran Berry, and Bluk Berry.

There is a Hypno standing farther back near the western door. A note on its chest indicates that it is down on its luck. Donate $1,000 to help him out and the costumed man rewards your generosity with TM44 (Rest).

There is a boy with his Drifloon on the east side of the building. It turns out to be the same Drifloon that you saved from Team Skull on Route 6, and gives you a Lemonade as thanks.

Route 7

 
Route 7

Route 7 spans the northeast part of Akala Island. The sweltering conditions make anyone in the area begin to sweat from the heat of the volcano. The path connects Route 6 with Wela Volcano Park to the west and Route 8 to the north.


Wela Volcano Park

 
Wela Volcano Park

Wela Volcano Park consists of a large mountain with steep paths and wastelands. Several hardy Pokémon species can be found across the rugged terrain. The volcano's peak is the site of Captain Kiawe's trial.


Trek through the tall grass and up the first ramp to find a Hyper Potion to the south. Continue up the slope to battle Sightseer Mariah. Farther to the north, there is a young woman standing near a cave entrance. She calls herself the "cutest" of the three Seismic Sisters, and informs you that the cave next to her leads directly to the top of the volcano. Exit the cave to find yourself outside the trial site. The woman at the entrance will heal your Pokémon to full health. Before heading to the peak, it is best to explore the other side of the volcano. Take the path down the left side of the mountain to find a Zygarde Cell, a Charcoal, and the "prettiest" Seismic Sister. The tunnel here leads to the right side of the volcano and the "most charming" Seismic Sister. Head down this side of the volcano to fight Ace Trainer Jim and collect TM39 (Rock Tomb) on the cliff's edge. Battle Hiker Calhoun and continue down the series of ledges to reach a Burn Heal, then take the first tunnel again to the summit.

Captain Kiawe's Trial

Enter the Captain's Gate and climb to the peak to begin Kiawe's trial. He and his Marowak have studied the ancient dances passed down in Alola for generations, and his trial is meant to test the challenger's powers of observation. There will be one dance performance, then another, and the challenger must identify the difference between them.

For the first set of dances, the correct answer is the middle Pokémon, though any answer given results in a battle with Marowak.

For the second set of dances, Hiker David appears and photobombs the second dance. Avoid using contact moves, as his Magmar can burn nearly anything that touches it due to its Flame Body Ability.




For the final set of dances, every option refers to the Totem Pokémon.

VS Totem Salazzle

When the battle begins, the Totem Salazzle is surrounded by an aura that raises its Special Defense by one stage. As in other trials, it is recommended to focus on the Totem Pokémon first and any allies afterward. Salazzle has a unique Fire/Poison typing and a signature Ability, Corrosion. This lets it use Toxic to badly poison any Pokémon, even Poison and Steel types that would normally be immune. Adding insult to injury, Venom Drench then lowers the Attack, Special Attack, and Speed of a poisoned target by one stage. Taking Salazzle down quickly with super-effective damage is the key to avoiding any lingering ailments. Wishiwashi of level 20 or more has access to the increased stats of its School Form, and like Brionne, can deal serious damage with Waterium Z and Hydro Vortex. Other viable options include the Ground-type Mudbray and the Psychic-type Kadabra. Use Ground-, Rock-, Water-, and Psychic-type attacks for best results.

After the Totem Pokémon and its allies are defeated, Kiawe rewards you with the Firium Z and teaches you the pose for Inferno Overdrive. He also gives you ten Quick Balls and registers a new service in your Ride Pager—Charizard Glide! Summoning Charizard will let you quickly return to any area visited previously. Try it out now and use Charizard to fly back to Route 7. Speak to the trial guide near the gate and proceed north to Route 8.

Having registered Charizard Glide in the Ride Pager, it is now possible to visit Poké Pelago. Accessed through the menu, Pokémon stored in the PC can visit these islands to relax and play.
