The Pokémon that the girl was holding escapes her bag as they reach the Plank Bridge, happy about the new environment it is in. Suddenly, a flock of {{p|Spearow}} attack the defenseless Pokémon, leaving the girl worrying and asking the player to save her friend [[Nebby]]. Even as the player had no Pokémon to battle the Spearow, the player rushes in and guards Nebby from harm before Nebby uses its power to destroy the bridge. Before the player and Nebby fall to their doom, {{p|Tapu Koko}} flies through the Spearow and bring the pair back to safely. Thankful for rescuing Nebby, the girl gives the player a [[Sparkling Stone]] that appeared after Tapu Koko's departure.
The player and the girl then return to Iki Town and get greeted by Kukui. Kukui introduces the girl as his lab assistant, Lillie, before the kahuna, [[Hala]], returns from resolving a problem on the island. After Lillie explains the encounter she and the player had with Tapu Koko, Hala gets touched by the moment and gives the player the choice to choose {{p|Rowlet}}, {{p|Litten}}, or {{p|Popplio}} as their starter Pokémon. After a short ceremony with the player and the new Pokémon, Kukui gives the player a [[Pokédex]] and sends him/herthem to thetheir mother to show off the new Pokémon.
Hala's grandson, [[Hau]], then appears in the town and challenges the player to a battle using the Pokémon that is weak to the player's starter. After the battle, Hala takes the player's sparkling stone and invites the player to a festival the following day. The next day, Kukui stops by the player's house again and takes him to {{rt|1|Alola}} so he can teach him/herthem how to catch Pokémon. Kukui then lets the player train before going to the festival.
At the festival, Hala and Kukui reveal that it is an event where Pokémon battles are held in honor of the [[Guardian deities|Guardian Pokémon]] in Alola. Hau and the player battle once again in honor of Tapu Koko, and this time the entire town watches, including Lillie, the player's mother and Meowth. After Tapu Koko approves of the battling, Hala returns the sparkling stone, which is now converted into a [[Z-Ring]]. Hala explains the Z-Ring's powers and the [[Z-Crystal]]s that can only be acquired by participating in the [[island challenge]], where the player must travel to all four of Alola's islands to become the island challenge champion. Afterwards, the player then returns home to prepare for the next day.
