Pokémon: Ultra Sun & Moon

Champion's Throne

By
Vincent Lau

In the final area, accessed via the central teleporter, approach the empty throne at the far end. Normally that’s where the Champion is waiting, but as luck would have it, Alola doesn’t have a Champion yet. Therefore making you the Champion by default. But things are never that easy, as you’re quickly interrupted by one final challenger.

Pokémon Trainer Hau

Pokémon Level Type
Raichu (Alolan) 59 Electric/Psychic
Flareon (if you picked Rowlet) 58 Fire
Vaporeon (if you picked Litten) 58 Water
Leafeon (if you picked Popplio) 58 Grass
Tauros 58 Normal
Noivern 58 Flying/Dragon
Crabominable 59 Fighting/Ice
Primarina (if you picked Rowlet) 60 Water/Fairy
Decidueye (if you picked Litten) 60 Grass/Ghost
Incineroar (if you picked Popplio) 60 Fire/Dark

This is it: the final battle! First up is Hau’s Alolan Raichu, which has high Special Attack and Speed, but poor physical bulk. It can use Thunderbolt and Psychic for STAB damage, Focus Blast to punish Dark-types, and Quick Attack to attack first. Ground, Bug and Ghost-types are strongly recommended.

Hau also has an Eevee evolution that’s strong against your starter Pokémon. It will have a powerful STAB move of its Type, Quick Attack to go first, Charm to greatly lower Attack, and Baby-Doll Eyes to preemtpively lower Attack. Because it’s a mono-type, picking a counter should be easy for a Champion-to-be.

Tauros is a deceptively strong and fast Pokémon with decent physical bulk. It can use Double Edge to deal heavy STAB damage, Earthquake to hurt Rock and Steel-types, Zen Headbutt to punish Fighting-types, and Iron Head for other purposes. Fighting-types are ideal, although they should be wary of Zen Headbutt.

Noivern is an evolved Noibat with outstanding Speed and high Special Attack. It can use Dragon Pulse and Air Slash to deal STAB damage, Dark Pulse to hurt Psychics and Ghosts, and Super Fang to halve the HP of formidable foes. Ice-types are ideal, because they do 4x damage, and Fairy-types are also a great choice.

Crabominable has terrifying Attack and decent HP, but poor Speed. This one can use Ice Hammer to for Ice-type STAB, Power Up Punch for Fighting-type STAB and to boost its Attack, Dizzy Punch to damage and potentially confuse, and Stone Edge to wreck Fire-types. Pummel it with Fighting, Psychic or Fairy-types.

Finally, Hau has a fully evolved starter Pokémon that’s weak to yours. It will have a STAB move for each of its two Types, plus a third attacking move for coverage. Additionally, it will be holding the Z-Crystal of its primary Type. Needless to say, your own starter Pokémon is the perfect counter. Show him no mercy!

Emerge victorious against Hau and nobody else will dare stand between you and the title of Champion! After your team has been entered into the Hall of Fame, you’ll be taken back to Iki Town, where everyone is holding a congratulations party on your behalf. Once the festivities are over, sit back and enjoy the credits roll.
