Island Trials

The Island Trials make a return in Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon but with a change. There are some altered and new trials, as well as new Totem Pokémon. The Island Trials are small challenges set by various leaders around Alola to help trainers participate in the Island Trial Challenge, and you cannot capture any Pokémon during the trial. In Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon, there are 8 official trials and a ninth unofficial one.

Trial #1: Normalium Z

Trial Captain: Ilima
Location: Verdant Cavern - Melemele Island

Details:
The first trial is set by Ilima after you have battled him in Hau'oli City. When you enter Verdant Cavern, you are sent to find the three Pokémon that are in the cave. These Pokémon are Yungoos (Sun) or Rattata (Moon). When found, they will attack you, at Level 11, and cannot be captured. Half way through the trial, Team Skull appear to mess things up. The third Pokémon is a Gumshoos or Raticate depending on your version.

When defeated, you're allowed out of the Trial Site towards the Totem's Den where the Normalium Z can be found.
