In the games

Lana appears in Pokémon Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon as the Captain of the trial of Brooklet Hill. In her trial, Lana asks the player to investigate a series of phenomenon in the hill's waters using their new Ride Pokémon, Lapras. At the end, they must defeat a powerful sea-going Totem Pokémon, a School Form WishiwashiSM/an AraquanidUSUM. She later appears near the end of Mallow's trial with Kiawe, providing supplies that prove necessary to lure in the Totem Lurantis.

After defeating OliviaSM/becoming ChampionUSUM, the player can visit Lana's twin sisters, Harper and Sarah, in her home in Konikoni City, who ask to play with them by battling them in a Double Battle. After defeating them, Lana arrives, and is goaded into battling the player by her siblings. The battle takes place back in Brooklet Hill, where Lana will use a Z-RingSM/Z-Power RingUSUM along with a Waterium Z attached to her Araquanid.

In Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon only, Lana also appears with Mallow at Lush Jungle during Mina's trial. She will give the player a Blue Petal as a part of the trial, although the player must defeat herUM/MallowUS first. Afterwards, she and Mallow will offer to escort the player to Wela Volcano Park to meet Kiawe and get the next petal from him.

Quotes

Pokémon Sun and Moon

Brooklet Hill
"Hello. I'm Lana. I serve as the captain of Brooklet Hill. You look like an able-bodied Trainer. Could I ask for your help with something?"
Regardless of choice: "Then follow me. This way, please."
"See? Do you see that there?"
"Look at that vigorous splashing! I wouldn't be surprised to find a fearsome Pokémon is the one causing it all..."
"So, brave trial-goer, I would like to ask you to investigate that splashing there and find out what exactly is causing it. I won't ask you to swim out there, of course. I have a lovely gift for you instead."
"If you climb atop Lapras there, you will be able to travel over bodies of water. That's right. You'll even be able to reach those splashes and see what is going on there."
  • If talked to again
"Did you see that splashing? I wonder what it is... I'd go and check it out for myself, but clinging to a clammy Lapras over the waves... Urp! It makes me seasick just thinking about it!"
  • If the player surfs away
"I simply can't suppress the curiosity welling up within me... That's why I would appreciate it if you would investigate those splashes in the water."
"Oh my... So it was Wishiwashi kicking up all that water? Even a little Wishiwashi can make such big waves..."
"Oh me. What is that? I can hear wild splashing from over there... It sounds even larger than what we just saw. Is it a Pokémon? Is it a person? I suppose we had better go check."
"Look! There it is... Ah... I'm sorry. What was your name? ... ... ... Of course! <Player>! It is a lovely name. Just lovely. Now look over there. Do you see that?"
"Whatever is kicking up such lovely splashes must be rather big... A strapping young Swimmer, perhaps? Or an amazing Pokémon specimen?"
  • If talked to again
"<Player>! Hurry, let's go see what is causing all that splashing over there!"
  • If the player surfs away
"Are you going somewhere? I would still like you to investigate those splashes in the water."
"Oh my. So it was another Wishiwashi that was kicking up all that water? Hmm. How unfortunate. It wasn't a strapping young Swimmer after all..."
"Oh my word! Now what is that? Even more furious splashing? It sounds as big as a Wailord. It might just be another Pokémon, but... Maybe, just maybe, we'll be lucky enough to find a spry young Swimmer floundering in the water and in need of saving!"
"Let's go investigate it, <player>!"
"Brooklet Hill... Within it lies the Legendary Pokémon said to be the embodiment of the sea itself... the mighty Kyogre."
That's amazing!: "It was only a joke, <player>... You're rather trusting, aren't you?"
Really?: "Oh dear... You won't be tricked easily, <player>."
"But we are near the sea. If that splashing sound is coming from the sea... then I wonder what is causing it. And now it is raining, as well. The rain will boost the power of any Water-type moves by half again... Could those splashes be caused by some Pokémon whose moves are now growing ever stronger in the falling rain?"
"<Player>... You've come all this way with me..."
"That's right. Didn't you notice? You passed through the Captain's gate by my side. Which means that you will undergo my trial! To clear my trial, you must defeat the great Totem Pokémon known as the lord of the ocean!"
"That spray of water you can see there! That is where you will probably find the totem. And perhaps those Wishiwashi you battled against will also want their revenge... Defeat whatever comes at you and prove your strength to me! And remember that you cannot catch any Pokémon here unless you complete my trial. So let the trial begin!"
  • If talked to again
"Defeat the totem that is causing all that sea spray, and prove your strength to me. And...well, you may find that using Grass- or Electric-type moves will be to your advantage. Or you could always resort to using an X Sp. Def or two or perhaps a Dire Hit. Do not let your guard down. The totem is not to be trifled with."
  • If the player walks away
"What is it, <player>? Do you need to leave so that you might prepare yourself better for my trial?"
Yes: "I understand. It's unfortunate, of course, but go prepare yourself so you can come try again."
No: "Defeat the totem that is causing all that sea spray, and prove your strength to me. And...well, you may find that using Grass- or Electric-type moves will be to your advantage. Or you could always resort to using an X Sp. Def or two or perhaps a Dire Hit. Do not let your guard down. The totem is not to be trifled with."
  • If the player restarted the trial
"So you're back, <player>... Though you bowed out of my trial once."
  • After defeating Totem Wishiwashi
"Very well done, <player>! Please come back this way."
"I...I must say that I find myself at an impasse here. All of the Wishiwashi that I so diligently trained up were defeated, and that is very frustrating... but of course I cannot let your completion of my trial go uncelebrated, <player>. You were amazing, <player>. Truly impressive. Please take this."
"You do know what this is, don't you? Watch. This is how you use Waterium Z."
"And that's not all I can offer you. Here. This is a Lana original. One of my own handmade fishing rods."
"This is how you use my fishing rod: When you want to fish for Pokémon, look for piles of rocks in the water. Fish like to hide in the shadows there. When you see your bob dip under the water, you have a bite. But you won't for long. The Pokémon will struggle to get away, so press Ⓐ as soon as you see the "!" mark. If you want to catch any of the Pokémon you fish up for your team, I recommend Dive Balls."
"By the way... Did you know I once reeled in a red Gyarados?"
Regardless of choice: "Well, what do you think?"
"You did a fine job today. Shall I see you back to the Pokémon Center on Route 5?"
Yes: "Good. Let's be going then. And you can always do a spot of fishing later."
No: "I understand. Oh yes, I understand all too well. The siren call of the sea... and the urge to fish up something wonderful!"
  • After accepting the request to battle in Konikoni City
"Shall we? I have a responsibility to set a good example for my younger sisters, of course. But even more important than that...I have my pride as a captain! I will show you what a serious Lana can do! I look forward to enjoying a no-holds-barred battle again you, <player>!"
  • Upon being defeated
"Well! You certainly reeled me in."
  • After being defeated
"Phew..."
"<Player>, that was fantastic! You and your Pokémon were perfectly in sync! It seems I was premature in thinking that my full power would be enough to defeat you."
"Fine, fine... Let's all be getting back home. But I will not be carrying you! You can walk on your own two feet. What else do you think you have feet for?"
Route 5
"Next is Kiawe's trial. It will take place at Wela Volcano Park. Oh. And that reminds me... Did you see any Sudowoodo by Paniola Ranch? They were causing some trouble for people, so I gave them a little dose of Z-Power using my Waterium Z. Just a little lesson for them. I wonder how they will react now that they see that you have Waterium Z, too? Heh."
Lush Jungle
"How are you, Mallow?"
"And I brought you some Fresh Water and the usual Rocky Helmet."
"Here you are."
"Nor did the Wishiwashi that I had trained so carefully..."
"*lick*"
"The flavor from the Rare Bone seems to fill my whole mouth..."
"It's...it's so..."
"S-SPICY!!!"
Konikoni City
"I'm home, girls."
"Oh! <Player>? You came to visit with us?"
"Well, thank you, <player>. For entertaining my little sisters so kindly."
"Well... I don't rightly know. <Player> is definitely strong himself/herself."
"It looks like I've got little choice... Once the girls have their minds set, they don't budge, no matter how hard you try."
"If you don't mind, <player>, could I ask you for a battle? The truth is that I've also been wanting to see how we might compare in skill!"
Umm...: "I know these girls would love to see us battle, so please come back anytime to take me on. And perhaps I should warn you... I am quite strong!"
Sure!: "All right!"
"Why don't we go out front, <player>? I would have some advantage battling inside the house, since I'm so familiar with the layout."
  • After being defeated at Brooklet Hill
"Thank you again for playing with my sisters. ...Here. Please have this and use it if you think it might be helpful."
"My father is expecting me to help on the boat, so I should be going soon. But you feel free to stay as long as you want, <player>. My home is yours."

Brooklet Hill
  • Entrance
"Hello. I'm Lana. I serve as the captain of Brooklet Hill. So, trial-goer... Will you be attempting my trial?"
Not yet: "Oh, really? I will be waiting, in that case."
Definitely!: "Then I will explain the trial to you. My particular trial is this... I want you to herd the Pokémon found in the pools of Brooklet Hill, driving them downstream to draw out the Totem Pokémon. If I might be so blunt, they are Wishiwashi. It's Wishiwashi I want you to herd. But I won't expect you to swim through all the pools yourself. I have a lovely gift to help you."
"If you climb atop Lapras there, you will be able to travel over bodies of water."
"Now you'll be able to help drive those Pokémon downstream for me!"
"So if you're ready... Please follow me this way."
  • By the second lake
"So you made it... Ah... I'm sorry. What was your name? ... ... ... Of course! <player>! It is a lovely name. Just lovely. Now, then. Do you see those two splashes over there?"
"I am thinking that at least one of them might contain a Wishiwashi. In fact, it's likely both might. Don't you agree? Would you try to drive them downstream with a little help from Lapras?"
  • If the player attempts to surf awat
"That splash there! Please do check that vigorous splashing and keep driving the Pokémon downstream for me."
  • After defeating the first Wishiwashi
"Well, this is a lovely surprise! You're quite the Trainer, <player>! Please carry on driving the Wishiwashi downstream just like that."
  • Upon reaching the Totem's Den
"<player>! Look there! Yes, just over there!"
"It would seem we succeeded in drawing out the Totem Pokémon!"
"Strike against the totem with all your strength! And seize victory!"
  • If the player tries to leave Brooklet Hill
"What is it, <player>? So you need more time to leave so that you might prepare yourself better for my trial?"
Yes: "I understand. It's unfortunate, of course, but go prepare yourself so you can come try again."
No: "Defeat the Totem to prove your skill to me. And...well you may find that using Grass- or Electric-type moves will be to your advantage. Or you could always resort to using an X Sp. Def or two, or perhaps a Dire Hit. Do not let your guard down. The totem is not to be trifled with."
  • If the player restarted the trial
"Yes, <player>? You've found me again. Would you like the attempt my trial once more?"
Definitely!: "Good. Then to review my trial's requirements... I want you to drive the Wishiwashi found in the pools of Brooklet Hill downstream, in order to draw out the Totem Pokémon./Then we should head downstream to meet the totem! If you're ready, please follow me this way."
'Not really: "Oh, really? I will be waiting in that case."
  • After defeating the Totem Pokémon
"Very well done, <player>! Please come back this way."
"What a very surprising surprise. Who would have thought it? That all those Wishiwashi gathering would have summoned an Araquanid, that is. Heh heh... Even I was caught - hook, line, and sinker! You were amazing, <player>. Truly impressive. Please take this."
"You do know what this is, don't you? Watch. This is how you use Waterium Z."
"And I have more than just that to offer you. Another token for clearing my trial... Here. This is a Lana original. One of my own handmade fishing rods."
"This is how you use my fishing rod: When you want to fish for Pokémon, look for piles of rocks in the water. Fish like to hide in the shadows there.

"Oh, <player>! Are you here for Mallow's trial too?"
Yup: "Oh, I was just taking a guess. Looks like you got lured in, too, huh? I came became Mallow asked me to bring her some Fresh Water."
Why do you ask?: "Heh heh. Mallow asked me to bring her some Fresh Water, so here I am. I wanted to have a look around here for a Big Root that I could use as a fishing rod anyway, though."
  • If talked to again
"I'm sure a fresh-faced Trainer like you will be able to find a nice, fresh Big Root in no time!"
"Nor did the Araquanid that I had trained so carefully..."
"And that food you cooked is suited to Pokémon's taste buds, right? I think it's probably best to save it for when Lurantis wants some more..."
  • During Mina's trial
"Are you sure you should relax quite so much, Mallow? I quite like it when you're full of energy. You're much less likely to be startled by an unexpected visitor when you are."
"Like I thought, true relaxation might be out of the question for you, my spry Mallow."

"Now I understand why the Mallow Special is quite so special. Heh heh..."

"Poor Mallow is feeling bashful. But I know how to guarantee you keep what you saw a secret."

A battle? Hold on!: "Oh dear, Mallow. It looks like your secret might be out..."

In the manga

Lana in Pokémon Adventures
Lana in her "battle mode"

Lana debuted in the Going Ashore and Neighboring Akala Island. She, Mallow, and Kiawe traveled to Heahea City to meet Sun, a boy approved to take part in the island challenge. Curious about whether or not Sun was worthy enough to do the island challenge, Kiawe challenged him to a short battle. Though the match ended without a winner, Kiawe bonded with Sun and accepted him as a trialgoer. Lana was still reluctant and told the others to follow her to Brooklet Hill.

In True Identity and the Totem Pokémon of Brooklet Hill, Lana gave Sun the task of defeating the Totem Pokémon causing havoc at Brooklet Hill. Later, Lana watched Sun battled the totem, a School Form Wishiwashi. Due to having befriended Wishiwashi earlier, Sun was reluctant to fight it. This angered Lana, who compared it to herself and pointed out that despite appearances, Wishiwashi was strong and didn't need to be protected. Listening to Lana's advice, Sun stopped holding back and defeated the totem, successfully completing his first trial.

In Homecoming and the Brilliant Professional Golfer, Lana and Sun were informed by Mallow that Kiawe had been attacked by Gladion. Lana, Sun, Moon, and Mallow went to Memorial Hill, where they found an injured Kiawe. When a group of Team Skull Grunts appeared, Lana and Mallow stayed behind to battle them while the others went to protect Tapu Lele from Gladion. After the Grunts were defeated, Lana and Mallow reunited with the others after they successfully helped Tapu Lele.

In PASM14, Lana and the others met at Mallow's family restaurant, where they talked to Professor Kukui's wife, Professor Burnet, over a video phone. After suspecting Team Skull may be related to the Ultra Wormholes appearing around Alola, Lana suggested infiltrating Team Skull's base in Po Town to get answers. Mallow and Kiawe reluctantly agreed, but the former suggested asking Ilima and Acerola to help them.

In PASM17, Lana, Kiawe, Mallow, Acerola, Ilima, and Hau arrived at Po Town. Their presence alerted Team Skull's boss, Guzma, who demanded to know why his base was being invaded. When the Captains revealed they only wanted to talk, Guzma agreed on the condition they made it to him first. He then summoned a Pheromosa, Celesteela, and Guzzlord and had them attack the Captains and Hau. Despite their best efforts, Lana and the others were completely outmatched by the rampaging beasts.

In PASM18, Sun arrived at Po Town, only to get caught up in the commotion. Annoyed the Captains were still fighting, Guzma revealed a Cosmog and had it open more wormholes. Gladion appeared, demanding to know where Guzma got the Cosmog and Ultra Beasts from. Revealing his true aim is to destroy Ultra Beasts, Gladion battled the beasts Guzma summoned with his Type: Null. To everyone's shock, Gladion also revealed the Aether Foundation's president, Lusamine, was the one who gave Guzma Cosmog as part of her plan to create a paradise filled with nothing but Ultra Beasts and herself. Eventually, the beasts broke out of Po Town's barrier, allowing them to wreak havoc on all of Ula'ula Island. Lana and the other Captains headed off to various locations to evacuate any innocent civilians caught in the beasts' attacks.

Six months later, Lana and the other Trial Captains trained together on Exeggutor Island in order to prepare for an upcoming clash with the Ultra Beasts.

Normally, Lana is very shy and timid, but she takes on a more serious and violent persona when in battle. Kiawe refers to this transformation as Lana's (Japanese: バトルモード battle mode). According to Lana, this personality shift actually scares her younger sisters.

Araquanid
Araquanid is Lana's only known Pokémon. It was first used to travel to Konikoni City so that Lana and Sun could rescue Kiawe from being attacked. After discovering the assailants were Team Skull Grunts, Lana used Araquanid to battle them. Later, it was used to battle the Pheromosa Guzma used at Po Town, but was defeated.

Araquanid's only known move is Bug Bite.
