Pikachu joined Ash, Delia and DeliaMimey on a vacation to the [[Alola]] region in ''[[SM001|Alola to New Adventure!]]''. On their way to the [[Pokémon School]] on [[Melemele Island]], Pikachu and Ash followed a wild {{p|Grubbin}} into a forest, where the two noticed {{an|Kiawe|a Trainer}} riding a {{p|Charizard}}. They followed him and arrived at the Pokémon School, where they met some of the school's students as well as {{an|Professor Kukui}} and Professor Oak's cousin, [[Samson Oak]]. Ash later used Pikachu to battle a trio of {{tc|Team Skull Grunt}}s, who were harassing Kiawe, and their trio of {{p|Zubat}}, {{p|Salandit}}, and {{p|Yungoos}}. Pikachu was able to dodge their Salandit's attacks with ease and seriously damage them with Quick Attack and Thunderbolt. Kiawe then had his {{TP|Kiawe|Turtonator}} use the [[Z-Move]] {{m|Inferno Overdrive}} which knocked [[Team Skull]]'s Pokémon out in one shot. That evening, Pikachu and Ash followed {{DL|Guardian deities (anime)|Tapu Koko}}, the [[Guardian deities|guardian deity]] of Melemele Island, who handed Ash a [[Z-Ring]] and an [[Electrium Z]]. Pikachu remained in Alola with Ash, when he decided to study at the Pokémon School.
In [[SM002|the next episode]], Ash's classmates had a surprise welcome party for him, where he and Pikachu participated in several challenges. During their lunch break, Tapu Koko appeared again and stole Ash's hat, prompting Ash and his classmates to follow it. Arriving in a forest, Tapu Koko challenged Ash to a Pokémon battle. Pikachu was overwhelmed by Tapu Koko's fast moves and despite Electric Terrain being created by Tapu Koko's Ability {{a|Electric Surge}}, Pikachu's Thunderbolt didn't faze it. Tapu Koko then tapped Ash's Z-Ring, activating it and allowing Pikachu to perform {{m|Gigavolt Havoc}}, which destroyed a large part of the area but also caused Ash's Electrium Z to shatter. Afterwards, Tapu Koko flew off again.
