Professor Kukui debuts in ''[[PASM02|The Delivery of Rotom and the Girl]]''. He is first seen at his laboratory, where he tested the moves of his {{pTP|Moon|Rowlet}} and {{p|Popplio}}. The attacks caused Kukui to be sent flying through the roof and land in front of his house.
There, Kukui encountered {{adv|Sun}} and {{adv|Moon}}, the latter of which was tasked with delivering a {{p|Rotom}} to Kukui. Kukui explained that he needed Rotom, which aren’t found in Alola, because they are capable of combining with Sun’s [[Pokédex]]. When Rotom attempted to go inside the Pokédex, it ran away because the Pokédex was dirty and smelled bad due to Sun constantly mishandling it. Angered by this, Kukui forced Sun to retrieve Rotom while he cleaned the Pokédex. Later that night, Sun returned to Kukui's house with Rotom.
In [[PASM04]], Kukui participated in the Iki Town festival tournament while disguised as the Masked Royal. In the [[PASM05|first round]], Kukui was paired up against Sun. Due to the lack of a monetary reward, Sun refused to take the battle seriously until Hala revealed the prize for winning the tournament, an [[island challenge]] amulet. Assuming the amulet was valuable and he could sell it money, Sun became motivated enough to battle seriously, allowing him to win the battle and advance to the next round. Afterward, Kukui watched the remaining battles alongside Hala.
In ''[[PASM07|The Final Match and a Surprising Finale!]]'', Kukui, as himself, transported Sun and Moon to [[Akala Island]] on his yacht. While they traveled, Kukui allowed Moon to take his {{p|Rowlet}}, as he noticed the bond the two developed. Moon also revealed that the Rotom she delivered actually fused with a spare Pokédex she received from Kukui to become the [[Rotom Pokédex]]. After arriving at [[Akala Island]], Kukui told Sun and Moon to wait on the docks while he went to the Dimensional Research Lab to talk to his wife, [[Professor Burnet]].
In [[PASM08]], Kukui sent several Pokémon documents to Burnet, who was still at Kukui’s house. As they talked, Burnet revealed that [[Nebby]] is actually the [[Legendary Pokémon]] {{p|Cosmog}}. Burnet suggests that Lillie may have been trying to keep Nebby away from someone, but she refused to clarify who she was trying to escape from. To Kukui’s surprise, Burnet suggested that he make Lillie his assistant, as it may help her begin to open up more.
