Hala asks Ash how to keep Alolan Rattata and Raticate from overrunning the town. With his classmates’ help, Ash suggests recruiting their natural rivals, Yungoos and Gumshoos. Hala agrees, and Ash faces his first trial: battling the enormous Totem Gumshoos and its allies to gain their assistance!
When Ash wins, Totem Gumshoos gives him a Z-Crystal, then takes its team into town to send all the pests running. Ash’s next step on the island challenge will be a grand trial—a battle against Kahuna Hala!
