===Pokémon Sun and Moon===
The trial begins once the player steps forward after walking through the trial gate. The player does not have the option to exit the trial part-way through. If the player loses the battle against the [[Totem Pokémon]], when they attempt the trial again it will start at the final security question.
In this trial, Sophocles uses his invention called the "Ping Totem Pokémon 2.0" to broadcast sounds audible only to Pokémon to lure the Totem Pokémon. Sophocles activates it, causing a fuse to blow, and the trial proper to begin.
