Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are filled to the brim with brand-new little side quests and events that make the world feel a whole lot more lively. Here are seven of the most memorable, bizarre encounters inAi??Pokemon Ultra SunAi??and Ultra Moon, and the rewards youai??i??ll get for completing them.
This manai??i??s one goal in life is to be the best bellhop he can be. To prove it, he dutifully stands besides the entrance of theAi??Tide Song Hotel, only to lament on not landing the bellhop job at theAi??Hano Grand Resort. His helpful manager inside suggests showing him aAi??Magmar, producing a strange, and hilarious, reaction. The bellhop, reminded of his encouraging mother by the Magmar, gifts you aAi??CharcoalAi??for your trouble.
A trainer has been onAi??Route 16ai??i??sAi??beach for a full week straight in support of his Starmieai??i??s winning streakai??i?? at staring contests. No, it doesnai??i??t have eyes, so it should be impossible for Starmie to lose, but that doesnai??i??t stop nearby Pokemon likeAi??CorsolaAi??andAi??SlowpokeAi??from challenging it. If you want to do this poor trainer a solid and bring along a Pokemon that knowsAi??Tickle, likeAi??Mime Jr., heai??i??ll reward you for freeing him from his cheerleader duty with aAi??comet shard.
At night onAi??Hano Beach, youai??i??ll find a loneAi??PyukumukuAi??lamenting his lost Pyukumuku lover, Mukiet, who was probably tossed into the sea by a careless part-time Pyukumuku Chucker (aka, you).Ai?? Reuniting them is a kind deed, and youai??i??ll be rewarded with a valuableAi??big pearlAi??and a comedic conclusion to the dramatic story.
There are seven rumors about theAi??Trainersai??i?? SchoolAi??at night, giving everyone a good scare. This one is a bit longer ai??i?? and spookier ai??i?? than most, and involves encounters with various misunderstood Pokemon likeAi??Grimer,Ai??Gastly, andAi??Hypno. However,Ai??DrifloonAi??are actually known to be filled with stolen souls, and its evolution is said to carry people away to the afterlife. Yikes. Youai??i??ll get a pair ofAi??Wise GlassesAi??for solving these mysteries, so perhaps itai??i??s worth the risk!
A girl inAi??Malie GardenAi??has been gifted aAi??DewpiderAi??by her father, but she isnai??i??t too happy about it. Why? Its ability makes it perpetually wet ai??i?? just like her sweaty dad! After battling with it, she begins to form a bond with the little moist Pokemon, but then her dad hops out from nowhere, bathing everyone in the vicinity with droplets of sweat. Gross, and fiveAi??Net BallsAi??arenai??i??t that great of a reward, but at least you helped a girl and her Pokemon and got a free showerai??i?? kind of.
A woman from another region inAi??Konikoni CityAi??is obsessed with finding a local Pokemon rumored to have the most fabulous hair. Alolan Dugtrio fits the bill with its long, luxurious blonde locks. Show one to her to get aAi??Dire Hit.
Sheai??i??ll have anAi??Alolan DugtrioAi??of her own if you visit her later, but it doesnai??i??t like herai??i?? because she isnai??i??t blonde. Return with a long mane ofAi??honey blonde hairAi??yourself to cause the brunette-hating Alolan Dugtrio to riot with happiness at your fabulousness. The hairdresser will gift you aAi??Soft SandAi??for making her stunning Pokemon happy. Who knows if Dugtrio will ever actually warm up to the hairdresser without a dye-job of her own, though!
These were just a few of our favorite bizarre encounters, but there are many, many more to find in Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moonai??i??s Alola Region.
