What starts as a summer vacation in the tropical Alola region turns into the next exciting chapter in Ash Ketchum’s quest to become a Pokémon Master! There’s plenty for Ash and Pikachu to explore in this sunny new region, with exciting new Pokémon to discover and interesting people to learn from along the way—including the cool Professor Kukui and Samson Oak, the principal of the Pokémon School. Ash’s new classmates will help guide his Alolan adventure: Kiawe, Lana, Mallow, Sophocles—and Lillie, who knows a lot about Pokémon but seems to be afraid to touch them. Frequent foes Team Rocket have also made the trip to Alola, looking to swipe some high-powered new Pokémon. But they have some competition on the villainy front: the ruffians of Team Skull!
