In the anime
* [[Hala]] made his debut in ''[[SM009|To Top a Totem!]]'', where he watched over Ash while he completed the [[Verdant Cavern]] trial. In ''[[SM010|Trial and Tribulation!]]'' Ash fought him, won, and received a new [[Electrium Z]] after {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Tapu Koko}} swapped Hala's [[Fightinium Z]] with it.
* [[Olivia]] first appeared in person in ''[[SM031|The Island Whisperer!]]'', where she brought Ash's class to [[Akala Island]]. After completing the [[Lush Jungle]] trial in ''[[SM035|Currying Favor and Flavor!]]'', Ash battled Olivia in ''[[SM036|Trials and Determinations!]]'' and won, earning a [[Rockium Z]].
* [[Nanu]]'s first appearance was in ''[[SM073|Why Not Give Me a Z-Ring Sometime?]]'', where he gave {{TRT}} a [[Z-Ring|Z-Power Ring]] as thanks for helping [[Acerola]]. Ash met him in ''[[SM074|Tough Guy Trials!]]'', and then battled him in a grand trial in ''[[SM077|Guiding an Awakening!]]'' and won, earning a [[Lycanium Z]] as a reward. In the {{pkmn|anime}}, he is an old acquaintance of {{an|Giovanni}}.
* Like in the games, Poni Island has no Island Kahuna as of [[SM104]], when Ash and his classmates arrived to the island to conduct their personal research projects. [[Hapu]] first appeared in the same episode. Like in the games, she is presently not a Kahuna, but her grandfather, Sofū, was the Island's second most recent.
