Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon Mina Trial Guide

Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon Mina Trial Guide

After you’ve defeated Ultra Necrozma for the first time, you will be able to continue along you trainer journed. Mina the Captain of Poni Island will arrive at the Altar and ask if you wish to begin her trial. Choose yes to start the trial right away. Use this Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon Mina trial guide to make it a little easier. I played through this sequence on Pokemon Ultra Moon.

Mina – Mina House (Poni Island)

Mina’s trial is all about battling. That’s all there is to it. The first trainer you will battle is Mina herself. Beating Mina will earn you the Pink Petal. Mina will then tell you to refight all the Captains from the previous islands in order to gather other petals. Easy enough.

llima – Hau’ oli Cemetery (Melemele Island)

llima can be found in the Hau’oli Cemetery on Melemele Island. Hau’oli Cemetery is located along Route 2. Inside the cemetery you will find llima in the middle – far right row, looking at a tombstone. Talk to llima to trigger the fight. Beating llima gets you the Orange Petal.

Mallow – Lush Jungle (Akala Island)

Mallow is up next on the list. You can find Captain Mallow in Lush Jungle gathering ingredients for a soup. Depending on which copy of the game you own will determine who you fight.

  • In Pokemon Ultra Moon you will discover that Mallow is ‘high’ on something and not really in a position to battle you. Instead you will fight Lana.
  • In Pokemon Ultra Sun you will fight Mallow instead of Lana.

Defeating Lana/Mallow will earn you the Green + Blue Petals.

Kiawe – Wela Volcano Park (Akala Island)

After completing the Lush Jungle battle, you will be able to head to Wela Volcano Park. Here you will fight Kiawe once again. After you defeat Kiawe, you will face off against Hiker David. Defeating Kiawe and Hiker David will earn you the Red Petal.

Molayne – Hokulani Observatory (Ula’ula Island)

The next stop on our magic Captain battling journey is the Hokulani Observatory. Here you will see Sophocles and Molayne talking. Molayne passes the Captain role on to Sophocles who will give you the Yellow Petal. If you own Pokemon Ultra Sun, you will need to battle Sophocles (instead of Nanu) to get the Yellow Petal

Nanu – Aether House (Ula’ula Island)

After you’ve collected the Yellow Petal, you will head to the Aether House. Nanu will give you the Purple Petal. If you own Pokemon Ultra Moon, you will need to battle Nanu (instead of Sophocles) to get the Purple Petal. This completes the petal collecting we needed to do. Head back to Mina!

Totem Ribombee (Poni Island)

Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon Mina Trial Guide

Returning to Mina allows her to put the seven petals together. This makes a Rainbow Flower. With the Rainbow Flower in hand, the Totem Pokemon will be summoned… Prepare for an epic battle with, Totem Ribombee. Ribombee is weak to Flying, Poison, Rock, Steel, and Fire type Pokemon, so be sure to have a mix of these in your party. Defeating Totem Ribombee earns you Fairium Z. Completing Nanu’s trial signals the end of trial! All that’s left now is the grand trial.

    In Ultra Sun you fight Mallow (Trevenant, Shiinotic, and Tsareena) instead of Lana and Sophocle (Togedemaru, Magnezone, and Golem) instead of Nanu.
