In ''[[SM042|Alola, Kanto!]]'', Kukui accompanied his students and [[Samson Oak]] to [[Kanto]] for an extracurricular activity, where they visited [[Professor Oak's Laboratory]]. In the [[SM043|following episode]], he and the others traveled to the [[Cerulean Gym]], where his students battled {{an|Misty}} and {{an|Brock}}. Seeing these battles inspired him to realize his childhood dream an official Pokémon League in Alola.
In ''[[SM044|A Dream Encounter!]]'', Kukui told Ash about [[Professor Burnet]] and her research on [[Ultra Wormhole]]s. He later introduced her to him when she, along with the president of the [[Aether Foundation]] [[{{an|Lusamine]]}}, [[{{an|Faba]]}}, and [[Wicke]], visited his home to meet Ash and {{DL|Light trio (anime)|Solgaleo|Nebby}}. During his class's sleepover in ''[[SM048|A Dream Encounter!]]'', Kukui began to bond with Burnet, who also stayed over at his house.
In ''[[SM051|Family Determination!]]'', Kukui accompanied his students to the [[Altar of the Sunne]] on [[Poni Island]] to catch up with {{an|Lillie}}, who had ran away from home with her brother, {{an|Gladion}}, in search of a way to save Lusamine, who had been abducted by a {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Nihilego}}. [[SM052|Later]], while watching Alola's [[guardian deities]] bless Nebby, he received a phone call for help from Professor Burnet and left to help her out. He soon witnessed Burnet and her {{p|Munchlax}} being surrounded by a group of {{p|Jangmo-o}} and {{p|Hakamo-o}}, but using his {{p|Braviary}} he was able to drive the Scaly Pokémon off. By the time the two professors returned to the altar though, Ash and the others had already ridden off on Nebby into an [[Ultra Wormhole]]. Kukui and Burnet stayed behind and waited until the group [[SM054|finally]] returned with Lusamine.
In [[SM127]], Kukui announced the completion of the Manalo Stadium to the people of Alola. He revealed the prize for winning the Alola League tournament was an exhibition match against the Masked Royal.

Professor Kukui is a fairly serious, but happy character. Despite this, heHe usually likes to add the names of [[move]]s into conversations every now and then, much like how [[Samson Oak]] uses Pokémon-related puns. He hasalso been showntends to be also break from his serious and calm attitude, as shown in ''[[SM017|Crystal-Clear Sleuthing!]]'', when he was completely shocked at the notion that {{an|Kiawe}} had stolen {{Ash}}'s missing [[Electrium Z]]. Like {{an|Rotom Pokédex}}, he enjoys watching the [[television]] show Alolan Detective [[Laki]] and try to figure out who the culprit is during the episode. Much like his use of move names when he talks, he was shown to find it funny that the viewers assumed that the {{AP|Rockruff}} which he befriended was actually his. The fact that Professor Kukui befriended the stray Rockruff, when he came upon the Pokémon, who had recently been attacked with {{m|Teeter Dance}} and decided to nurture it, shows that he is also a friendly and hospitable person.
Professor Kukui is a skilled Pokémon Trainer, and as the Masked Royal, he is able to handle battling multiple Pokémon at once in [[Battle Royal]]s. The Masked Royal is the [[Battle Royal Dome]]'s star Trainer, having a known record win streak of at least 21 victories. Despite some comically close calls, no one has been able to discern the Masked Royal's true identity. The only exceptions are his longtime friend [[Molayne]]; [[{{an|Faba]]}}, who realized the truth after Kukui inadvertently blew his cover in front of him; and [[Ash's Torracat]], who was able to recognize him from his scent.
In ''[[SM055|The Professors' New Adventure!]]'', Braviary attended the wedding of Professor Kukui and [[Professor Burnet]] as Kukui's partner Pokémon.
In ''[[SM089|The Prism Between Light and Darkness!]]'', Braviary attacked [[Team Rocket]]'s helicopter. He then battled [[Gozu]] alongside [[{{an|Faba]]}}'s {{p|Alakazam}} and {{p|Hypno}}, only to be knocked out by his {{me|Aggron}}'s {{m|Heavy Slam}}.
Braviary's known moves are {{m|Brave Bird}} and {{m|Rock Slide}}.}}
