'''Professor Kukui''' (Japanese: '''ククイ博士''' ''Dr. Kukui'') is a major supporting character of the [[Pokémon anime]] in the {{series|Sun & Moon}}. He is a [[Pokémon Professor]] in the [[Alola]] [[region]] and a teacher at the [[Pokémon School]] on [[Melemele Island]]. He is also the true identity of '''The Masked Royal''' (Japanese: '''ロイヤルマスク''' ''Royal Mask'').
In [[SM087]], mysterious dark clouds appeared over Alola, leaving Kukui and all other adults tired and without motivation. [[SM088|Later]], after this was resolved, Kukui met up the [[Ultra Guardians]], Burnet, Lusamine, Faba, and Wicke inside the Ultra Guardians base, where he oversaw {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Lunala}} recovering. [[SM089|Later]], when the Ultra Guardians left for [[Ultra Space]] with Lunala, Kukui and Faba volunteered to aid them. On [[Ten Carat Hill]], he and Faba confronted [[Team Rocket]]'s [[Matori]] Matrix by using their Pokémon to damage the team's airship and prevent them from entering the Ultra Wormhole. Afterwards, Kukui and Faba faced [[Gozu]] and his {{me|Aggron}} in battle, but their Pokémon were swiftly beaten. In [[SM090|the next episode]], Kukui asked Faba if he had more Pokémon, and the latter replied he did not. Thus, Kukui was forced to send out his {{p|Incineroar}} and perform its Z-Move, {{m|Malicious Moonsault}}, which managed to defeat Mega Aggron. However, this also caused him to reveal his secret identity to Faba, who in turn revealed that he was a big fan of the Masked Royal. Later, alongside Incineroar and Faba, Kukui joined the rest of Alola in showering {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Necrozma}} with Z-Power so it could return to its {{DL|List of Pokémon with form differences|Necrozma|true form}}. After Necrozma returned to its Ultra form, Kukui watched as the Ultra Guardians, Nebby, and Lunala returned to Alola, alongside Faba, Burnet, Lusamine, and Wicke.
