Guardian of Alola (Japanese: ガーディアン・デ・アローラ Guardian de Alola) is a damage-dealing Fairy-type Z-Move introduced in Generation VII. It is the exclusive Z-Move of the guardian deities and an upgraded version of their signature move, Nature's Madness.


Generation VII

Guardian of Alola deals damage equal to 75% of the target's remaining HP (rounded down, but no less than 1).

Like all Z-Moves, Guardian of Alola deals one-quarter of its normal damage (18.75% in this case) if the target is protected by a protection move.

Generation VIII onwards

Guardian of Alola cannot be selected in a battle.


Games Description
SMUSUM The user, the Land Spirit Pokémon, obtains Alola's energy using its Z-Power and attacks the target with full force. This reduces the target's HP greatly.
This move can't be used. It's recommended that this move is forgotten. Once forgotten, this move can't be remembered.


Any guardian deity Pokémon, or a Pokémon transformed into one, can use Guardian of Alola if it knows Nature's Madness, holds Tapunium Z, and if its Trainer wears a Z-RingSM or Z-Power RingUSUM.

In the anime

Tapu Koko
The user obtains Alola's energy using its Z-Power to form a giant entity to attack the opponent with.
Pokémon Method
User First Used In Notes
  Tapu Koko strikes a series of synchronized poses with its Trainer to build Z-Power. It then becomes surrounded by an orb of yellow energy and summons a giant, yellow, headless, humanoid energy-based entity from the ground before closing its shell to merge on top of the entity as its head. The entity then punches the opponent with one of its fists.
