Pokémon Sun & Moon Grand Trials Guide

With new difficulty added to Sun and Moon, a number of players will need some help to deal with the Grand Trials, which are very important as they unlock a plethora of features and Z Crystals.

Grand Trial #1: Hala

Fighting Type heavy challenge. The first Grand Trial involves you in a fight with Hala, in Iki Town. Her roster is rather easy with 3 Fighting Type Pokémon, and only Crabrawler has access to Z-Moves. Mankey and Makuhita are very easy when countered with appropriate typing.

Winning this trial rewards you with the following: a stamp in Trainer Passport (Trade level 35 Pokémon), Fightinium Z and access to Rider Pager.

Grand Trial #4: Hapu

The final Grand Trial. The Ground Lady. C’mon, you’ve expected this. Hapu becomes a Kahuna just minutes before she battles you.

The fight takes place in front of Vast Poni Canyon and her roster is filled with Ground types that are easily countered. Interestingly, she uses the new “Hair Metal Alola” Dugtrio.
