As revealed in ''[[SM128|League Offenders and Defenders!]]'', Hala was once {{an|Professor Kukui}} and [[Guzma]]'s mentor. He attempted to keep the peace between the pair, but Guzma became disillusioned with Hala's teachings and decided to become strong on his own without using a [[Z-Ring]] or [[Z-Crystal]]s.
Hala debuted in ''[[SM009|To Top a Totem!]]'', where he was revealed to be the one who made the Z-Ring that {{DL|Guardian deities (anime)|Tapu Koko}} gave to {{Ash}} in ''[[SM001|Alola to New Adventure!]]''. He tasked Ash with finding a nonviolent way to drive out a group of {{pkmn2|wild}} {{alorf|Alolan}} {{p|Rattata}} and {{p|Raticate}}. After Ash gave him the answer, he led Ash to [[Verdant Cavern]], a trial site inhabited by a {{pkmn2|Totem}} {{p|Gumshoos}}, so that Ash could start his [[island challenge]]. Following Ash's victory, he became qualified to take on Hala's grand trial.
In ''[[SM010|Trial and Tribulation!]]'', Hala was Ash's opponent in his Melemele grand trial. After a tough battle, Ash emerged victorious. Hala was about to give Ash a [[Fightinium Z]] as a reward, but suddenly, Tapu Koko swooped in and swapped it with an [[Electrium Z]], which Hala gave to Ash instead.
Hala appeared in a fantasy in [[SM145]].
In [[SM146]], Hala acted as the referee of Hau's grand trial battle against Nanu and his {{alorf|Alolan}} {{p|Persian}}.
In ''[[SM114|Beauty is Only Crystal Deep!]]'', Hariyama attempted to battle {{p|Pheromosa}} but lost.
In ''[[SM125|A Timeless Encounter!]]'', it appeared as a {{p|Makuhita}} in a flashback. It fought an {{tc|Ace Trainer}}'s {{alorf|Alolan}} {{p|Sandslash}} and won.
In [[SM140]], Hariyama was used battle a {{DL|Ultra Beasts (anime)|Manalo Stadium Guzzlord|Guzzlord}} that was attacking [[Manalo Stadium]].
