The trial begins as soon as the {{player}} enters Verdant Cavern; however, they can leave at any time, although this will reset the trial. Once the trial guide has stepped aside to grant access to the Totem's Den, the player can leave at any time without resetting the trial.
In this trial, the player must find and battle two {{p|Yungoos}}{{sup/7|S}}{{sup/7|US}}/{{alorf|Alolan}} {{p|Rattata}}{{sup/7|M}}{{sup/7|UM}} and a {{p|Gumshoos}}{{sup/7|S}}{{sup/7|US}}/an Alolan {{p|Raticate}}{{sup/7|M}}{{sup/7|UM}}. Along the way, the player will face two {{tc|Team Skull Grunt}}s and battle one of them; once defeated, the two grunts will unwittingly help the player finish the trial. Despite not officially being part of the trial, the grunts act as if they are, resetting when the trial is reset.
In the battle with the Totem Pokémon, it will call its ally on its first turn; once the ally is defeated, the Totem Pokémon cannot call it again.

Verdant Cavern appeared in ''[[SM009‎‎|To Top a Totem!]]'', as the site of {{Ash}}'s first island trial. Wanting to ask {{p|Yungoos}} and {{p|Gumshoos}}'s help in dealing with a group of {{alorf|Alolan}} {{p|Rattata}} and {{p|Raticate}} causing havoc around [[Melemele Island]], Ash was led to the Verdant Cavern by [[Hala]] to battle {{pkmn2|Totem}} Gumshoos and get it to help them.
At first, Ash faced a Yungoos and Gumshoos, the Totem's ally Pokémon, which he defeated with the help of {{AP|Pikachu}} and {{AP|Rowlet}}. After this, Totem Gumshoos appeared, challenging Ash. It was able to defeat Rowlet, but was eventually taken down by Pikachu. As a reward for winning the battle, Totem Gumshoos gave Ash a [[Normalium Z]] and agreed to help in driving away the troublesome Rattata and Raticate. Unbeknownst to Ash and Hala, {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Tapu Koko}} secretly followed the trial as it took place.
