ポニのさいだん Poni Altar
|Debut||Play the Melody That Echoes in the Altar|
Poni Altar (Japanese: ポニのさいだん Poni Altar) is a location in the Pokémon Adventures manga. It serves as a replacement for the Altars of the Sunne and Moone, incorporating elements from both locations into one.
The Poni Altar first appeared in Play the Melody That Echoes in the Altar. The four guardian deities of Alola took Sun and Moon there and gave them a Sun Flute and a Moon Flute, respectively. With the melody of both flutes, Sun and Moon caused the Altar to release a bright light that caused Nebby and another Cosmoem to evolve into the Legendary Pokémon Lunala and Solgaleo, respectively.
Shortly afterward, Moon, Gladion, Hapu, and Anabel fought against a group of Ultra Beasts that had arrived in Alola. During the clash, a large Ultra Wormhole opened up with a Necrozma's hand emerging from it. Necrozma grabbed Solgaleo, taking control of its body. The possessed Solgaleo captured Sun with its tail and dived into the wormhole while Moon and Nebby chased after them.
In Adventure in the Dark Dimension, the aforementioned wormhole was revealed to still be open six months later. In Arrival at the Scientific Megalopolis, Lusamine was seen at the altar, receiving 100 Beast Balls from Blake disguised as Colress in preparation for her plan to capture Necrozma
In Darkness!! The Mysterious Claws of Necrozma!, Phyco arrived at the Poni Altar via Ultra Warp Ride and met Lusamine. She subsequently demonstrated to Phyco how to catch a Pokémon by catching the Naganadel he had used for the Ultra Warp Ride, before asking him to take her to Naganadel's home before they would head to Ultra Megalopolis.
