In ''[[SM104|That's Some Spicy Island Research!]]'', Kiawe and his classmates headed over to [[Poni Island]] for their individual research projects for school. Kiawe's project was to train with his Pokémon. Kiawe traveled to the [[Ruins of Hope]] with Ash in ''[[SM107|Run, Heroes, Run!]]''. They were unable to find {{DL|Guardian deities (anime)|Tapu Fini}}, so Kiawe proceeded to have a battle against Ash, but it angered Tapu Fini, causing Ash, Pikachu, Turtonator, and Marowak to become trapped in a veil of water. In order to free them, Tapu Fini tasked Kiawe with retrieving scales from {{DL|Guardian deities (anime)|Tapu Lele}} within a certain time-frame. Kiawe proceeded to Akala Island on Charizard and arrived at the [[Ruins of Life]], where he battled Tapu Lele and received some scales. Returning to the Ruins of Hope, Kiawe freed Ash and the others, then received a [[Flyinium Z]] from Tapu Fini, which Kiawe proceeded to use on Charizard.
In ''[[SM129|Battle Royal 151]]'', Kiawe was among the 151 Trainers taking part in the [[Manalo Conference]]. Using Turtonator, Kiawe participated in the [[Battle Royal]] preliminary round and was among the 16 Trainers remaining at the end. In ''[[SM131|The Battlefield of Truth and Love!]]'', he faced [[Acerola]] in his first round battle. Despite Acerola's tricky strategies with her newly-caught {{p|Gengar}}, [[nickname]]d the "Greedy Rapooh", Kiawe eventually emerged victorious, advancing to the second round. Later, it was revealed his next opponent would be Sophocles.
In [[SM133]], Kiawe faced Sophocles in the second round, and before their battle started, Sophocles revealed he started to enjoy battling and wished to defeat Kiawe one day despite knowing how strong he is. The battle continued in the [[SM134|next episode]], where, after a fierce exchange of attacks, Kiawe eventually emerged as the winner. After the second round ended, it was revealed Kiawe's next opponent would be Gladion.
