[[File:Acerola anime.png|thumb|250px|Acerola in the {{pkmn|anime}}]]
Acerola debuted in ''[[SM073|Why Not Give Me a Z-Ring Sometime?]]''. She is close friends with [[Ula'ula Island]] residents [[Piko]] and {{OBP|Nene|Alola}}, who refer to her as "Big Sis". She read them a story regarding a mischievous spirit known as the Greedy Rapooh and later went for a walk with them. During the walk, they came across {{TRT}}, who had accidentally released the Greedy Rapooh, which was actually a {{p|Gengar}}, from the shrine that it had been sealed in.
Acerola found herself kidnapped by Greedy Rapooh, who then began to steal various items despite her requests for it to stop. Her {{Shiny}} {{p|Mimikyu}}, [[nickname]]d Mimikins, eventually rescued her from Greedy Rapooh, which resulted in them falling to the ground. The Greedy Rapooh then started begging Acerola to take it with her, offering her all the items in its possession, but she refused, believing her work at the library to be more important and valuable. Throwing a tantrum, Gengar tried to forcibly take Acerola with it, but she was saved by {{TRT}}, who had followed Gengar in an attempt to get back the [[Darkinium Z]] it had stolen from them. Having seen Team Rocket saving Acerola, [[Nanu]] chose to give them a [[Z-Power Ring]], allowing them to defeat Gengar. Later, a sympathetic Acerola told Gengar that it could come to visit her at the library from time to time, filling it with happiness. After Nanu had let Team Rocket keep the Z-Power Ring, Mimikins gave Jessie a [[Mimikium Z]] as a gift.
In ''[[SM074|Tough Guy Trials!]]'', Acerola met {{Ash}}, who had traveled to [[Ula'ula Island]] so he could challenge Nanu to a grand trial. After realizing that Ash was tricked into taking care of Nanu's {{alo|Meowth}} while he left to be lazy somewhere else, Acerola took Ash to her library, where she read a story about "the {{p|Necrozma|Blinding One}}". When Nanu arrived to find his missing {{wp|kendama}}, which Acerola had stolen to lure him to her, he was forced by Acerola to accept Ash's challenge to battle him. She later refereed the battle between Ash and his {{AP|Lycanroc}} against Nanu and his {{p|Krookodile}}, which Ash lost. When Nanu told Ash he wasn't ready to face him and should just return to [[Melemele Island]], Ash refused and decided to stay on Ula'ula and train for a rematch. Later, at Ash's request, Acerola suggested they go and see {{DL|Guardian deities (anime)|Tapu Bulu}} so it could help Ash.
In [[SM129]], Acerola greeted Ash and his classmates when they arrived at the [[Manalo Stadium]]. She was revealed to be among the 151 Trainers taking part in the [[Battle Royal]] preliminary round of the [[Manalo Conference]]. She competed with her {{p|Shuppet}}, and was ultimately among the 16 Trainers still standing in the end. The match-ups for the next round revealed that she would be battling {{an|Kiawe}}.
In [[SM131]], Acerola went up against Kiawe, using Greedy Rapooh against [[Kiawe's Marowak]]. She ended up losing when Marowak retrieved its bone from Greedy Rapooh and knocked it out. In [[SM135]], she watched the battle between Kiawe and {{an|Gladion}} in the stands.
She reappeared in [[SM136]].
In ''[[SM094|A Haunted House for Everyone!]]'', Mimikins accompanied Acerola to [[Melemele Island]] and visited the [[Pokémon School]]. Ash and {{ashcl}} were turning it into a haunted house for [[Harper and Sarah]], but Mimikins' presence attracted several other {{type|Ghost}} Pokémon.
It reappeared in [[SM129]], [[SM131]], [[SM135]], and [[SM136]].
Mimikins's only known move is {{m|Shadow Claw}}.}}

|desc={{p|Gengar}}, [[nickname]]d '''Greedy Rapooh''' (Japanese: '''欲しがりラプー''' ''Greedy Rapooh'') and sometimes shortened to simply '''Rapooh''' (Japanese: '''ラプー''' ''Rapooh''), is a {{pkmn2|Totem}}-sized Pokémon that Acerola befriended in ''[[SM073|Why Not Give Me a Z-Ring Sometime?]]''r. Acerola first met Gengar when it broke free from a shrine that {{TRT}} accidentally unsealed it from. When Acerola tried to scold Gengar and stop it from causing trouble, it took a liking to her and kidnapped her. It then stole a large variety of objects, including Team Rocket's [[Darkinium Z]], in an effort to have Acerola stay with it, but to no avail.
Team Rocket later saved Acerola with the help of [[Nanu]], their new [[Z-Power Ring]], and {{m|Black Hole Eclipse}}. Gengar initially felt rejected by Acerola, but after being told that it can visit her in the library she works in at any time, it happily accepted the offer.
In ''[[SM090|Securing the Future!]]'', Gengar joined the rest of Alola in showering {{DL|Light trio (anime)|Necrozma}} with light so it could return to its {{DL|List of Pokémon with form differences|Necrozma|true form}}.
In [[SM131]], Acerola was revealed to have caught Gengar, using it in her battle against {{an|Kiawe}} during the [[Manalo Conference]]. However, it was eventually defeated whenby {{TP|[[Kiawe|'s Marowak}} retrieved its bone from Greedy Rapooh and knocked it out]].
Greedy Rapooh's known moves are {{m|Shadow Ball}}, {{m|Shadow Punch}}, and {{m|Thief}}, and its [[Ability]] is {{a|Cursed Body}}.}}

* Despite Acerola referring to [[Island Kahuna]] [[Nanu]] as "uncle", they are not related, as stated on page 174 of the [[Pokémon Sun & Pokémon Moon: The Official Strategy Guide]]. "Uncle" and "Aunty" are often used as a label of endearment and closeness of a person of non-familial ties in Hawaii.
* Acerola is the only [[Trial Captain]] who is not battled under the {{DL|Pokémon Trainer|Trainer class}} "Captain"; the only one who is also a member of the Elite Four, and vice -versa; and the only one who does not participate in [[Mina]]'s trial.
* Acerola is 4'9" (145 cm) tall.
* According to official artbooks, like [[Phoebe]], Acerola can communicate with {{type|Ghost}} Pokémon.
