Mom (Alola)

Concept art from Pokémon Sun and Moon

Mom (Japanese: おかあさん mother) is the mother of the player in Pokémon Sun and Moon and Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.

In the games

In Sun and Moon, the player moves to Hau'oli City from the Kanto region with their mother and their pet Meowth. She is welcomed to the island by Professor Kukui when he first visits. When the player returns home with their chosen starter, she welcomes the new Pokémon into their home. The family's pet Meowth is extremely fond of her, generally never leaving her side and even sleeping on her bed with her.

She attends the festival to give praise Tapu Koko with the player and watches their ceremonial battle with Hau.

She later takes part in the celebration of the player becoming the first Champion in Alola, and battles Kukui in his Masked Royal guise and his Rockruff with her Meowth.

In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, she is revealed to have a husband who remained behind in Kanto and the two keep in contact by sending each other letters. After the player becomes the Champion, an event instigated by talking to Meowth reveals that the player's mother had been an infamous Meowth Trainer known as the "Scratch Cat Girl" (Japanese: ばけねこむすめ Bakeneko Girl) during her younger days in Kanto, and even in the present day is ruthless in battle.

"Alola, Sun! Did you know that when you greet someone in the Alola region, you say "Alola"?"
"Alola! We just moved here to this address."
"Sure, thank you very much."
"I guess we should just relax and wait here."
  • After Hau arrives
"Hau, take good care of Sun to me!"
"Yes, I am. Alola!"
"Hey, it's fine if you wanna just wait around here, but how about you go explore the town a bit?"
"Have fun!"

  • I guess…/I don't know… : "Oh, you! Someday you're going to learn to have a little wonder in your life!"
"We're living in the Alola region now! The beautiful islands everyone wants to visit! I'm sure the Pokémon living in a place like this must be friendly, right?"
"Was that the doorbell? That's got to be Professor Kukui. Why don't you let him in, <player>?"
  • If talked to again
"Was that the doorbell? That's got to be Professor Kukui. Why don't you let him in, <player>?"

"Professor Kukui! Yes, we just arrived yesterday."
"Of course. I still remember seeing you battle the Indigo Gym Leaders back in Kanto all those years ago, you know! I've been in love with Alolan Pokémon ever since, so I finally decided to come here myself!"
"They'll simply give my boy/girl a Pokémon? Then those kahunas really are worth meeting!"
"Hurry and get ready, <player>! Your Bag and hat and things are still in the boxes in your room, I think. And didn't you leave your copy of Adventure Rules on your desk in there, too?"
  • If talked to again or attempting to leave the house without getting dressed

"What's wrong, Hau?"
  • Post-credits
"Looks like you slept well, <player>."
"That's so nice of you, Hau. Thank you!"
It's pretty close: "Yes, I'd say it's pretty close. Close enough to visit whenever you wnat to!"
It's pretty far:
"Your father?"
"What is a Battle Tree, Hau?"
"That's right..."
"Now that you're the current Champion, everyone is going to want to challenge you!"
  • After talking to Hau
"As long as you have a love for adventure, then I guess you and your Pokémon's island challenge doesn't ever really have to end, huh?"
"I hope your little friend Lillie is doing well..."
"She must be learning all the basics of being a Trainer in Kanto right now, huh?"
"Maybe Meowth and I should go on our own little island challenge..."
"I could pass for 11, right?"
