Aside from the Legendary Pokémon, the Alola region Guardian Deities rank among the most powerful pocket monsters that you can capture in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon.

These won’t become available to capture until you conquer the Pokémon League and become Champion, but we have listed exactly where you will need to go in order to encounter them.

Tapu Bulu

Category: Land Spirit Pokémon
Type: Grass/Fairy
Height: 6′03″
Weight: 100.3 lbs.
Ability: Grassy Surge

Tapu Bulu has the power to manipulate vegetation and cause it to grow. It can use this power on its own horns—which are made of wood—changing their shape or making them larger. This can come in handy in battle! This stolid Pokémon is not very active. People’s opinions differ on whether it’s as docile as it seems, or if the reason it doesn’t move much can be chalked up to simple laziness.

Once you have become Champion, the Land Spirit Pokémon can be encountered in the Ruins of Abundance on Ula’ula Island by touching the idol.

Tapu Fini

Category: Land Spirit Pokémon
Type: Water/Fairy
Height: 4′03″
Weight: 46.7 lbs.
Ability: Misty Surge

This Pokémon is able to create a special water that purifies both mind and body. But Tapu Fini requires that supplicants wishing to obtain the purifying water demonstrate the strength to withstand the tapu’s fog. Many humans have tried to withstand Tapu Fini’s fogs in pursuit of its purifying water. Among them were some with evil intentions, which may be the reason for Tapu Fini’s sense of disgust and lack of interest in appearing to people.

Once you have become Champion, the Land Spirit Pokémon can be encountered in the Ruins of Hope on Poni Island by touching the idol.

Tapu Koko

Height: 5′11″
Weight: 45.2 lbs.
Ability: Electric Surge

Tapu Koko is a special Pokémon that protects the area where it lives. It’s called the guardian deity of Melemele Island, one of the islands of the Alola region. Although it’s known as a guardian deity, it’s a surprisingly fickle Pokémon, and will not necessarily come to your aid if you need help.

Once you have become Champion, the Land Spirit Pokémon can be caught in the Ruins of Conflict and is encountered automatically as part of the game’s epilogue.

Tapu Lele

There is a legend which says that long ago Tapu Lele once brought an end to war between the islands of Alola by scattering its scales and soothing the tired warriors.

Once you have become Champion, the Land Spirit Pokémon can be encountered in the Ruins of Life on Akala Island by touching the idol.
