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.

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

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.
SwShBDSPLA 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 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.
