The granulated powder sugar decorated the teens fingers she took another bite of the golden doughy treat. The malasada took up most of the space in Okalia's brown paper bag in her left hand. Though she usually biked to the Pokémon school she opted to walk instead so that she could keep her precious cargo safer, "What do you think Lucario? Should we add Malasadas to our future café?" the teen asked, glancing at the bipedal canine-like Pokémon walking beside her who also was had a brown paper bag holding the Malasada he was eating. Crumbs of dough and sugar dappled the blue fur around his mouth, licking his lips he lifted his other spiked forepaw to rub the crumbs and sugar away as he turned his gaze to the young teen walking beside him.
Lucario was a bipedal, canine-like Pokémon, with fur that was predominantly blue and black. It possessed a short, round spike on the back of each forepaw, in addition to a third on its chest. It had red eyes, a long snout and ears. When its mouth opened, it had two pairs of pointed teeth, one in the upper jaw and one in the lower. It possessed cream-coloured fur on its torso and blue fur on its thighs that resembled shorts. It had a medium length tail of the same blue colour as well. It stood on its toes rather than on its entire foot. It had developed four black appendages that hang down from its head. 'Its delicious my lady, the dough is warm and not too hard nor too chewy,' a calm male voice replied within her mind as the Lucario nodded, 'Though, I believe this island has enough Malasada shops my dear.'
"Yeah your right," Okalia released an amused sigh as a chuckle passed her lips, lifting her own hand to wipe her mouth with the back of her hand. "Maybe I should just stick to just being a Chocolatier and Pokétreat making." Taking one last bite of the sweet doughy pastry, before rolling up the empty brown paper bag and took Lucario's paper bag once he finished his treat and tossed it into the nearest bin as they passed.
'Your treats and chocolate creations are already beautiful, they also taste exquisite my lady.'
This comment caused a subtle pink to dust the lightly tanned girl. Brushing a loose strand of dark red hair that was messily tied back, into a high ponytail that reached down to her waist. Her fringe covering her right eyes leaving her single crimson gaze to soften as she sheepishly scratched the side of her cheek with a single finger, "Thanks Lucario, your too kind... but I think I still have much to work on." She admitted, grasping the leather strap of her brown messenger bag. She wore a simple white blouse, the collar of her shirt unfolded and pointed upwards and the single top button undone. She wore a simple black riding pants that had a multiple strapped brown belt that had a strap pouch bag on the left side and Pokéballs attached to the right side. Knee high heel boots, tapped against the stone pathway.
'Your too humble my lady.'
"Alola! to the both of you!" An elderly woman greeted.
"Oh. Alola Anela!" Okalia paused in her steps as she greeted the elderly woman sitting by her stall.
The elderly woman had curled silver hair, her wrinkles on her face didn't seem worn or forced but seemed to be formed by the endless smiling she gave as the dimples by her mouth gave away the countless amount of smiles she would give. Small rounded glasses sat across Anela's nose, and she wore a simple pink shirt and a brown skirt. Adorning around her neck she wore a red necklace that mimicked the markings that was worn by a Litten. Her store was neatly organised with boxes and trays filled with all kinds of berries that had a white tent over the top that shaded both the elderly woman and her produce.
"You and Lucario look to be in a great mood today," Anela stated, as she began picking some rounded blue berries and others into a paper bag.
"Yeah, I just got news that the place I was looking at, are considering my offer." Okalia replied with a gleaming white teeth smile.
"That's wonderful news! Your one step closer to your dream, and its all thanks to all the hard work you did." She passed the bag of berries to the dark-red head.
'It is, I wouldn't expect any less from my lady trainer. She deserves it after all the many days and nights, working so many side jobs,' Lucario's voice replied in both Okalia's and Anela's heads, answering and agreeing with the elderly woman's words. Okalia's cheeks reddened some more as she heard their words, she graciously took the bag of berries and pulled out some cash from her bag, handing it to the elderly woman.
"Excuse me! Sorry!!"
A boy cry snapped out through their conversation, He wore a white and blue striped short sleeved loose collared shirt, brown capris with red outlines with baggy pockets and red folded sleeves at the edge of his capris and shades of blue sneakers. His hat is red and black and the Poké Ball design is white. Stepping aside with Lucario the boy rushed passed her quickly followed by a small electric mouse Pokémon - which Okalia instantly recognised as a Pikachu - Pikachu was a short, chubby rodent Pokémon. It was covered in yellow fur with two horizontal brown stripes on its back. It had a small mouth, long, pointed ears with black tips, and brown eyes. Each cheek had a red circle that contained a pouch for electricity storage. It had short forearms with five fingers on each paw, and its feet each had three toes. At the base of its lightning bolt-shaped tail was a patch of brown fur.
"Pika! Pikachu!!" The small electric type call out as it chased after the boy who seemed to trailing after the churned up ground caused by a Pokémon.
"I wonder what that was all about?" Okalia murmured as she tilted her head to the side as she placed the bag of berries into her own messenger bag.
'Most likely a trainer in hot pursuit. His nose was red and slightly bruised, so I believe he was chasing a Pokémon that caused him that injury,'' Lucario answered.
"Oh I see, I don't know if I should feel sorry for the trainer or for the Pokémon," Okalia chuckled before facing the older woman again, "Thank you for the berries Anela, same tim next week?"
"Of course deary, your fresh berries will be right here and waiting, have a safe trip to school okay!"
"I will! Shall we go Lucario, I promised Kiawe I would meet him out front of the school when his deliveries were finished."
'Of course, we do not wish to be late...'
With a confirmed answer from the bipedal canine-like Pokémon, they both waved the elderly woman goodbye and began heading their way up onto the path that would take them to the Pokémon school, run by Principle Samson Oak and the Professor Kukui. The Pokémon school was designed to be a place where students and Pokémon could learn together, from battling together, Dancing, playing sports, swimming, fishing, learning about Alola and other regions, to learning more about your Pokémon.

"Looks like were on time. No sign of Kiawe," Okalia declared as she fiddled with the black Z-ring bracelet around her left wrist, a silver diamond shaped crystal with a black enclosed ore block imprinted within the crystal laid on top in the centre of the bracelet. Lucario merely rested his back against the school bridge's white post arch way, arms crossed under his chest spike, one foot up against the post and his red eyes closed, only to peek up from one of his half-lidded eyelids at his trainer.
'Do not worry my lady, we are never late. You aren't going to miss Sir Kiawe.'
This comment caused the red head's cheeks to turn a full-blown red, to the point Lucario swore he could see steam coming out of his lady's ears. "I'm not worried about missing him!" the crimson eyed teen turned back to the bipedal canine with a frown, denying the fighting type's words. Quickly realising she lifted a hand to her lips and forced a cough looking off to the side before crossing her arms underneath her chest. "I'm only concerned for him being late to class that's all, some times even that so organised fire-head idiot can get distracted."
'Of course my lady, whatever you say.'
Looking back to her Lucario she opened her mouth to reply only for it to close when a familiar roar came through the sky, looking up from her position by Lucario. She spotted the familiar Charizard wearing a air-ride saddle, coming to a land onto the dirt path. Charizard was a draconic, bipedal Pokémon. It had a primarily orange with a cream underside from the chest to the tip of its tail. It had a long neck, small blue eyes, slightly raised nostrils, and two horn-like structures protruding from the back of its rectangular head. Two large wings with blue-green undersides sprout from its back, and a horn-like appendage juts out from the third joint of each wing. A single wing-finger was visible through the centre of each wing membrane. Charizard's arms are short and skinny compared to its robust belly, and each limb has three white claws. It had stocky legs with cream-coloured soles on each of its plantigrade feet. The tip of its long, tapering tail burns with a sizable flame.
There were two fangs visible in the upper jaw when its mouth is closed letting out a contented rumble as he nuzzled into Okalia's shoulder, who chuckled and rubbed the draconic Pokémon's head. "Alola Charizard, had a nice flight?" earning a happy agreeable purr like sound from the fire n' flying type.
"Alola Okalia, Alola Lucario. You have a nice morning?" A voice came from a young, muscular, dark-skinned boy who hopped off the air-ride saddle on Charizard. He had orange and brown hair, in a style resembling fire. He wore red shorts with a black outline and sandals with the same colour scheme. He wore no shirt, though he does have some black cloth strips on his shoulders bound to his necklace, which had a small badge and feather decorations. In addition, he wore a Z-Ring with a red crystal etched into it around his left arm.
"Alola Kiawe, yeah today was a fine morning I even go-"
The sudden sound of motorbikes cut the red-head's voice out as three bikes quickly approached only to break suddenly in front of the four of them. Lifting her hand Okalia waved her hand back and forth to stop the dust and dirt from getting in her eyes, knowing full well who on the bikes as Lucario instantly growled in annoyance and stepped to her side as quick as a swing of a unsheathing sword. Charizard's annoyance was obvious also as he lifted his head away from nuzzling her to narrowing his eyes at the ones who disrupted their peace as they swung off their bikes and stepped towards them.
'Not these idiots again, when will they ever learn.' Lucario growled.
"They never will," Okalia answered with tsk.
Their clothes were mainly black, with a skull helmet and their emblem hanging from a necklace/chain. All three of them wearing a black bandana around their nose and mouth, but it was easy to tell them apart - the one on the left was a short all rounded teenager male with curly brown hair, the one in the centre was tall and lanky with curly short blue hair, while on the right was the only female with shoulder-length of pink hair.
"Stopping our bikes the way you did was not the smartest of moves," The blue one sneered.
"Yeah, just like my bro said," The chubby one chimed in.
"Team skull doesn't like anyone getting in our way." The blue leader said gesturing his hand that seemed overly dramatic to Okalia.
"You've got that right!" The pink one chimed in also with a smug look.
"I don't remember us blocking the road," Kiawe replied his brows furrowed, "The only people I see getting in the way are you."
"You guys just don't ever learn do you, Your not welcomed here." Okalia crossed her arms as she narrowed her eyes.
"Well, listen to the big talkers," The blue-haired skull-member mocked.
"Ha! I dare you to say that again!" The other male added in.
"If you can beat us in a Pokémon battle, maybe we'll let you both walk away..." He began turning away from them once again making dramatic hand gestures one would see with a rapper or a Gang member.
"Yeah, but if we beat you, then that Charizard and Lucario of yours belongs to us!" The other male declared pointing at both Okalia's and Kiawe's Pokémon earning glares from both of the trainers, who in which their Pokémon also glared at them.
"You'll be sorry..." Kiawe warned.
"Your seriously going to regret saying that..." Okalia reprimanded with a frown of her own.
"Ha! We'll see about that!" the blue-haired scoffed, "Come on out, Salandit!"
The team skull trio, each threw three Pokéballs into the air, letting out trios of Pokémon - The Salandits were a small, black Pokémon resembling a salamander or lizard. Its body was dark grey with a black head and feet. Along with its back and down its tail is an orange-red line. This marking splits into four short lines with round tips at the base of its tail. At the base of its neck are two short, flat spines, which create the impression of a mask or bandanna tied around its head. Its eyes are light purple with slit pupils and there are several tooth-like protrusions along its upper jaw. Each foot has four pointed toes.
Yungoos were a long-bodied Pokémon similar to a mongoose. It was covered in brown fur with a yellow stripe down its back and underside. It has short, rounded ears on the sides of its head, a short snout with a pink nose, and a large mouth full of pointed teeth. There are three black claws on each of its four short legs. Despite its length, Yungoos is thick bodied and has a wide, flat tail with longer fur on the tip.
While Zubat were a blue, bat-like Pokémon. While it lacks eyes, it has pointed ears with purple insides and a mouth with two sharp teeth on each jaw. It had purple wing membranes supported by two, elongated fingers, and two long, thin, tails.
"Now tell your Charizard and Lucario to fight!"
Okalia lowered her hand to one of the many Pokéballs on her belt, as the Yungoos began snarling at them along with the Salandits that began hissing.
Okalia paused to see the same boy and Pikachu she saw at the market rush across the school bridge and stop between her and Kiawe. All four of them looking at the dark-haired boy.
"But Ash!" Okalia heard her fellow classmate call out, that Okalia recognised as Mallow.
"Just who do you think you are!" The other brown haired male scoffed.
"Your cowards! Ganging up three against two!" The newly known Ash declared.
"What are you gonna do about it?" The blue haired team Skull scoffed.
"I'll fight, too! Are you ready? And you're..." Ash asked looking between them.
"Kiawe. But we don't need any help."
"Those guys are really dangerous, Ash!" Mallow cried out. Mallow was a girl with tanned skin, who adorned a pink flower in her green hair and has green eyes. She wore a pink sleeveless shirt with light teal overalls. She wore light teal denim shorts and green shoes with small dark green bows. She also had a golden clover-shaped badge on her waist. Yet the boy ignored her cries as he reached out his arm towards the electric mouse Pokémon who leapt up onto his arm and around his shoulders to his other arm.
"Pikachu! Ready?" He asked.
"Pika!" The yellow-mouse cried out in exertion.
"I choose you!"
"Pika!" He cried out in determination as he leapt off his arm and onto the ground in front of them and the other Pokémon.
"Don't hurt yourself." Kiawe warned as he lifted a Pokéball to his forehead, before tossing it into the air, "Now, Turtonator, come on OUT!" as the Pokéball opened a ball light burst out in a swirling blue before landing onto the ground with a large thud sending a swirling of dust. Revealing a bipedal, turtle-like Pokémon with a spiny shell. Its skin was a muted green and only visible on its limbs, tail, head, and neck. On top of its head is an additional shell with many points around the brim. This extra shell had a black centre, yellow in the middle, and a red outer rim. Its eyes have black markings around the bottom, and it had a tubular, yellow snout with a single, large nostril. Turtonator had a wide mouth with the lower lip marked by a jagged yellow line extending from its nose. On each side of Turtonator's long neck are two short, triangular projections. Its front legs had mitten-like hands, while its hind feet have claw-like red growths around them. Most of its tail was also covered by red plating, which had fin-like projections. The shell that encases its body has a red underside with a star-shaped, yellow-rimmed hole in the centre. The back of the shell had a yellow centre with several spikes: four large spikes with red bases form a star-shape in the centre with four smaller spikes around them.
Letting out a stream of fire it gave a determined grumble of its name.
'Allow me to fight them my lady,' earning a glance from the crimson eyed girl, then a confirmed nod, causing the fighting type to walk and approach the other side of Pikachu. A calm yet narrowed eyed look.
"Wow! so totally awesome! That's Lucario! and that's a Turtnator, huh?" Ash's eyes glimmered as he looked between the two tall Pokémon.
"A Fire and Dragon type. A strong and trusted friend. A wise one." Kiawe answered, looking at ash in the corner of his eye.
"No matter what Lucario is with me. A loyal and wise friend." Okalia replied also earning sparkling eyes from both Ash and Pikachu - Pikachu looking between Turtnator and Lucario respectively.
"Now, Salandit! Show them your strength with Venoshock!" The Blue-haired male ordered.
"Yungoos, use Bite!" The brown haired male commanded.
"Zubat, leech Life!" The pink-haired girl demanded.
"Pikachu! Use Quick Attack!" Ash declared.
"Pika!" with a affirmative cry, Pikachu dash forward surrounded by a white light as he began moving at quick speeds.
While the three Salandits leapt into the air with a hiss and began firing blobs of burning purplish pink venom towards the Electric mouse Pokémon, only for him to dodge them all easily and leap up through them sending a yellow shock through the three black and red lizard Pokémon sending them to the ground with a cry.
"That's fast!" Kiawe commented as he watched as Pikachu sent them to the ground.
"Lucario Bone rush!" Okalia called out, and at those words the bipedal canine-like Pokémon placed his forepaws side by side, before splitting them apart to reveal and create a long glowing blue bone, as the Zubat flew towards him, he block their bite and spun the bone around and swung them away, sending them crashing into the ground with a cry.
"Turtnator!" With a challenging grunt the bipedal turtle-like Pokémon turned around as the Yungoos leapt at the Pokémon's back only to bite down upon the spikes on his back, which instantly glowed orange exploding into a bright light, smoke spurting from around him and from the centre of his chest - sending the Yungoos flying to the ground.
"What happened?!" Ash questioned.
"If something touches the spines on Turtnator's shell, they'll blow up." Kiawe answered calmly and seriously.
"Quick Salandit! Use flame burst!" The blue-haired skull team member ordered. The Salandit twisted its body sending flying flames with a snap of its tail, sending it towards Pikachu.
"Pikachu, dodge and use Thunderbolt!" Ash Ordered.
With a giant leap into the air Pikachu replied with exertion, dodging Salandit's flame burst easily, sparks forming from its red cheeks, "PikaaaaCHUUUU!" crying out with a battle cry the entire body of the electric mouse was surrounded by a yellow light, before sending out a burst of lightening towards the three Salandit who cried out terrified bursting around them like a cloud of smoke.
"Yeah way to go!" Ash cheered with a grin.
Shakily all of the Zubat, Salandit, and Yungoos got to their feet as the blue-haired skull grunt gave a panicked gasp as Pikachu gave a confident smug look, while Lucario stood beside Turtnator holding the Bone Rush to his side glaring at the people who dared suggest to give him and Charizard up. With a chuckle Ash rubbed under his nose with his finger as Kiawe and Okalia stepped forward.
"We'll finish this." Okalia stated strongly her eyes not once taken off the three as Ash looked at them confusedly.
"All right! Turtnator, let's go!" Kiawe declared as he lifted his arms into a 'X' fists enclosed across his chest as the red crystal glowed revealing the flame marking in it.
"Shall we! Lucario, Let's finish this!" Okalia declared also as she too brought her arms into a 'X' fists enclosed across her chest as the silver crystal glowed revealing the ore block marking in it.
Both of them swung their arms up, then around down to their sides before they crossed their arms across the other in front of them. Kiawebegan to be surrounded by a red light and Okalia by an silver-grey light, earning a surprised and shock gasp from both Pikachu and Ash who looked between them - Turtnator and Lucario mimicked their trainers actions.
"Oh no!" the Blue grunt panicked.
"Uh ho!" The pink panicked also.
"Could it be thee move!?" The brown haired male panicked.
With a leaping spinning jump, Turtnator mimicked, "The zenith..." Lifting his leg the bracelet of the crystal grew brighter, "Of my Mind.." before bringing it down with the bracelet arm across his chest, "Of body..." before bring his arm down, "In spirit! Like the mountain of Akala…" he arose lifting his arms up higher and higher like the rising of flames, "Become a raging fire and burn!" before gesturing his hand out sending the light towards Turtnator, surrounding the Pokémon.
With a punch forward Okalia stepped forward, as the Bone Rush vanished from Lucario's paws and he punched forward like her. "When our thoughts..." she punched again with her other fist, her eyes narrowed, "Our heart...." she did two more punches she stepped forward again and slammed her two enclosed fists together mimicked by her Lucario, "Become one! Our bonds will grow stronger than ever!" The silver crystal grew brighter and brighter, "Become those to Protect others!" before gesturing her hand out sending the light towards Lucario, surrounding the Pokémon.
As Turtnator brought forth a overwhelming ball of flame, a tornado of silver formed as he clashed two spikes on his paws as he sent it charging forward with the blast of flame from Turtnator. Consuming the cries of the trios of Pokémon, in rubble and bright light of flame and the swirling of silver. As the heat and light sent forth as burst of waving air, Kiawe wrapped his arm around Okalia's waist and brought her close to his chest to stop her to falling over from the gush of breeze. Once the light and smoke cleared, before Turtnator and Lucario was a shattered ground with the passed out from the double Z-move which were quickly returned to their Pokéballs by the panicked Team Skull.
"We won't forget this!" The blue-haired male shouted as he rushed to his bike quickly followed by his two partners.
"Yeah, just like my bro said!" The curly brown haired male nervously declared.
"If you were gonna use that move, you should have told us!" The Blue-haired shouted as they drove away, shaking his fist at them.
"Yeah, no fair!" The female shouted, as they vanished over the horizon.
"Kiawe, Okalia, what was that?" Ash asked in awe.
"Pika~" Pikachu leapt onto Ash's shoulder giving an questioning murmur.
As Okalia and Kiawe turned to Ash, they both gave a closed mouth smile. Only for Okalia to pause and look down at Kiawe's hand around her waist, and quickly move away to Lucario's side where her cheeks were red - unawares to the faint pink that dusted Kiawe's cheeks, which was only seen by Turtnator and Lucario who looked at each other with a smirk.
"A Z-move." A familiar voice answered, one that Okalia recognised as Professor Kukui who approached with a smile. Professor Kukui was a young man with a muscular physique, who had dark eyes, black hair, a black man bun and a goatee. He wore a white hat with a rainbow decoration in the front. Professor Kukui also wore glasses with a teal frame, a white lab coat with rolled-up sleeves, grey baggy pants with a teal stripe and white ribbon and some teal shoes with a white outline.
"Z-Move?" Ash questioned.
"Right." Professor Kukui answered.
"That's our Kiawe and Okalia!" Sophocles declared, Sophocles was a short chubby boy, who had orange hair and brown eyes. He wore a yellow scarf around his neck that resembled a Pikachu's tail and a white T-shirt, with an orange design of a Game Boy Colour painted on it. He also wore brown pants with a yellow outline and some green shoes with lightning design and blue soles. On his right side of the hips, Sophocles had a keychain with a miniature Electrode attached and wears a belt containing a badge around his waist.
"You were great, too, Ash!" Mallow cheered as she rushed over along with two other students, which were Lana and Lillie.
Lillie was a young girl with green eyes and platinum blonde hair with two braids. She wore a large white hat, with a blue ribbon around it. She wore a white dress with transparent blue outlines, a pair of long socks and white flat shoes.
And Lana was a young girl with blue eyes and hair, the latter in which she wore a yellow decoration. She wore a white sleeveless shirt with a dark blue undershirt and a short cape behind her back. She also wore blue pants with a wave pattern tightened by a yellow line, which also had a badge attached, and also wore a pair of blue flip-flops.
"Z-moves are special moves passed down in the Alola region." Professor Kukui began to explain, "Alola consists of four islands, and each of them has its own guardian Pokémon. Only those who participate in a ceremony called the island challenge are able to use Z-Moves."
At those words Ash's excitement grew along with Pikachu's, "Island Guardians... Island Challenge... And Z-moves too!" His eyes gleamed at the idea along with Pikachu's as they echoed Professor Kukui's words. Only to pause when the Professor wrapped his arm over Kiawe's and his shoulders.
"Now that was a real Mega Punch Level Battle!" earning a smirk from Kiawe, and a calm closed mouth smile from Okalia, "Say, Ash. You seem to enjoy a good battle."
"Yeah! I wanna be a Pokémon Master!" Ash declared turning to face the Professor.
"Oh I see."
Okalia continued to watch her professor's amusement, until 'My lady I sense a strong aura...' Lucario's words rung in her head causing her to look in the direction Lucario was his appendages lifted behind his head shaking, eyes closed. Her crimson eye widen when she saw as a berry fell onto Ash's head to see, a yellow and orange Pokémon flee to the sky into the forest.
Its head and torso are black with white markings on its chest, just above its eyes, and on top of its head. Extending from the top of its head is a large, orange plume with bristles along the back. There was a yellow marking covering the top bristle and half of the bristle below it. The bottom of this crest goes all the way to its neck, where it divides its face in half and creates a beak-like nose. It has small, blue eyes with yellow markings behind them. The lower half of its body is orange with four pointed projections: one short spine on the front and two short spines in the back, with one longer spine between them. These spines resemble a bird's tail feathers. Its thin arms have round, yellow structures encircling its shoulders. On each arm is a shell that appears to be half of a bird mask, and its hands end in two large claws to create a beak for the mask.
The mask itself is mostly yellow with black, orange, and white markings. There are three white triangular markings with black edges on the top of each half of the mask, which create diamond-shapes when the mask is closed. The 'eyes' consist of a white diamond connected to a slightly larger orange diamond, which is inside a larger yellow diamond. Each of these shapes is edged in black. On each half of its beak is an orange triangle with a white rim. There are wing-shaped structures on each side, toward the back. She knew this Pokémon was able to pull the mask together and hide its upper body inside, creating the impression of a stylized Rooster.
"Tapu Koko..." She murmured.
"Who's that Pokémon?" Ash questioned.
"Huh?" Professor Kukui tilted his head.
"Pokémon?" Sophocles questioned.
"but Where?" Lana said.
"I don't see anything..." Mallow lifted her hand to shade her eyes.
"No he definitely saw a Pokémon..." Okalia spoke aloud catching everyone's attention, seeing she hasn't once taken her eyes off the forest her visible eye was wide as Lucario beside her stared with narrowed eyes, his appendages lowering. "Lucario said he sensed a powerful aura...." this brought everyone to stare, when Lucario admits he senses something, its always the truth.
Ash spun around as to face them, "It was just there! It was a Pokémon for sure! It was yellow... about this big, with an orange crest on its head!" Ash explained gesturing with his hands.
"That sounds like!" Professor Kukui's eyes widen as he looked at Ash, "And if Lucario sensed a strong power then it has to mean..."
"Tapu Koko," Kiawe finished.
"You saw Tapu Koko?! Guardian of Melemele Island?" Lillie questioned in wonder.
"Wow, Guardian? That's what that was?" Ash murmured.
'I believe that boy is going to bring change my lady... if he's caught Tapu Koko's attention...'
"Than things are already changing...."
