Professor Kukui (anime)

1 byte added, 12 October
Since his childhood, Kukui had been a fan of Pokémon [[move]]s, often observing [[Hala]]'s {{pkmn|battle}}s to witness these attacks in action. He would follow the matches along with his Move Index guidebook. At some point, he befriended and later obtained a {{TP|Professor Kukui|Litten}}, which originally belonged to his parents. The pair would often spend time in the forests of [[Melemele Island]] playing with all of the [[wild Pokémon]]. He also befriended a {{pkmn2|Totem}} {{p|Trevenant}} living in the forests and received a [[Firium Z]] after helping to relieve it of its sneezing. In addition, he is a childhood friend of [[Molayne]].
[[SM125|At the age of five]], he met {{Ash}}, whom a {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Celebi}} had accidentally sent into the past. Due to Ash's mastery of [[Z-Move]]s, he started calling him the "Move [[Island Kahuna|Kahuna]]" (Japanese: '''ワザキング''' ''Move King'') and asked to battle with him. Ash easily won the battle and taught the young Kukui, whom he started calling "RoaryRoarie" (Japanese: '''ガオ''' ''Gao'') due to his {{p|Incineroar}} cap, that there was no shame in losing. He then proceeded to tell Kukui about his [[Gym]] and [[Pokémon League]] battles in other [[region]]s, inspiring Kukui's own ambitions. Soon, Ash was transported back to the present by Celebi, leaving both young boys unaware of each other's real names.
