In the anime
{{Ash}} is currently taking the island challenge in conjunction with his studies at the [[Pokémon School]] in the [[Alola]] [[region]]. He competed in his first trial in ''[[SM009|To Top a Totem!]]'', when he cleared the [[Verdant Cavern]] trial, earning a [[Normalium Z]] from the Totem {{p|Gumshoos}} in the process. Since then, he has cleared the {{isl|Melemele}} grand trial in ''[[SM010|Trial and Tribulation!]]'', the [[Lush Jungle]] trial in ''[[SM035|Currying Favor and Flavor!]]'', the {{isl|Akala}} grand trial in ''[[SM036|Trials and Determinations!]]'', the {{OBP|Thrifty Megamart|Abandoned Site}} trial in ''[[SM076|A Battle Hand-Off!]]'', the {{isl|Ula'ula}} grand trial in ''[[SM077|Guiding an Awakening!]]'', and the {{isl|Poni}} grand trial in ''[[SM109|A Grand Debut!]]''.
{{ashcl|Ash's classmates}} have completed some trials as well. {{an|Kiawe}} completed [[Olivia]]'s grand trial on [[Akala Island]] prior to ''[[SM001|Alola to New Adventure!]]'', receiving a [[Z-Ring]] and [[Firium Z]] as a reward. {{an|Lana}} completed the trial on [[Brooklet Hill]] in ''[[SM033|Big Sky, Small Fry!]]'' by defeating a Totem {{p|Wishiwashi}} in its [[List of Pokémon with form differences#Wishiwashi|School Form]] with her {{TP|Lana|Popplio}}, receiving a [[Waterium Z]] from the Pokémon as a reward. In ''[[SM107|Run, Heroes, Run!]]'', Kiawe completed a trial set up for him by {{DL|Guardian deities (anime)|Tapu Fini}}, earning a [[Flyinium Z]] from the [[guardian deities|guardian deity]] as a reward. In [[SM121]], {{an|Mallow}} cleared a trial set up by {{an|Oranguru}}, receiving a [[Grassium Z]] from {{DL|Guardian deities (anime)|Tapu Koko}} as a reward.
In [[SM115]], the final trial atop [[Mount Lanakila]] was acknowledged, but was said to have been long since abandoned. Unlike in the games, where this trial consisted of battling the four Island Kahunas in a row, this former trial simply involved a battle between those who had cleared their island challenge.
