In ''[[SM115|The Dealer of Destruction!]]'', Kukui hosted a press conference at [[Aether Paradise]], where he announced the formation of the first-ever Alola {{al|Pokémon League}} and revealed [[Manalo Stadium|the stadium]] that was being constructed to host it, called Manalo. The next day, [[Guzma]] arrived at the Pokémon School and told Kukui that Alola didn't need a Pokémon League. When Ash challenged Guzma to a battle, Kukui refereed the match. The battle ended prematurely when Guzma's {{p|Golisopod}} returned to its {{i|Poké Ball}} due to {{a|Emergency Exit}}. As Guzma left, swearing to destroy the Alola League, Kukui confronted him, claiming that Guzma was running away like he did in the past with the island challenge and the Island Kahunas.
In ''[[SM127|Chasing Memories, Creating Dreams!]]'', Kukui announced the completion of the Manalo Stadium to the people of Alola. He also revealed that the winner of the [[Manalo Conference|Alola League]] would get to have an {{wp|exhibition game|exhibition match}} against the Masked Royal.
In ''[[SM128|League Offenders and Defenders!]]'', Hala revealed that Kukui and Guzma were once friends and students at the Pokémon School. However, the two had a falling-out after Guzma expressed beliefs that Z-Rings and Z-Moves were pointless.
