Best Characters from the Pokemon Sun and Moon Video Games


The Top Ten

1 Lillie Lillie Lillie is a fictional character introduced in Pokémon Sun and Moon. She serves as one of the player character's allies and traveling companions during the course of the game.

Arguably goes through more character development than any of the other pokegirls combined. It's hilarious to me that she originally started out by appearing as n assistant to the very good Professor Kukui. But then as the plot goes on, her role becomes deeper, thicker. She becomes the breakout character. The deuteragonist of your very story. Going through the final island together with her was a very highly cherishable memory. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Most developed character to exist in the games by far. Can do the exact same for the anime. - Rue

I don't really care for S/M but I love her so much

I feel bad.
I took her little Pokemon as it evolved into a big fat bat.
Should I go to prison?
And my name is the same name, just ly in the end not lie.

2 Gladion Gladion Gladion is a fictional character introduced in Pokémon Sun and Moon. He works for Team Skull. He serves as a rival character to the player in Pokémon Sun and Moon.

One quote he says ("Were not enemies anymore but were not friends either."That is what I wanted for so long a rival that's no stupid or your friend! But Brendan mostly in OR is great to! And also lil Wally glad he returned in the Battle Tree!

Man I love this guy's battle theme - ChiefMudkip

I have the biggest crush on Gladion help

He's so cool and I love his Pokémon team( silvally=😂😂

The best Pokemon professor ever created. - Rue

He's the best besides he's the one that gives u your pokemon!


OOH YEAH WOO! - cjWriter1997

4 Lusamine Lusamine Lusamine is a fictional character introduced in Pokémon Sun and Moon. She is the head of the Aether Foundation.

She was actually the first female villan team leader and female antagonist to ever battle in the game under the 'Aether President' class and didn't just battle the Trainer alongside her Pokemon for simply him/her meddling with her plans. - KonekoAngel

The greatest villain in the franchises history. A hauntingly beautiful battle theme for both of the battles. So absolutely positively mentally insane that she basically makes Lysandre look like a Saint. Heck. Not even Ghetais can compare. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Shes also the worst mother ever. Still my favorite antagonist in ANY game and it's nice to see her making a stand for the girls! - Absolite

Words cannot explain how magnificent she is.

This woman is creepy.She reminds me of Lysander,wanting to have a beautiful everything,even disowning Lillie and Gladion to do so.Lusamine is diabolical dangerous even.After Nihilego comes out,her true colors start to shine.I had a tough time battling her and her true nature was a shock first time round.She manipulates Guzma to help her and opens Ultra Space,bringing an alien attack to Alola.Lusamine is a very intrestinf character as well.Her big hybrid form with Nihilego looks cool as well and is so anime too. Overall a stunning addition to Sun and Moon's characters, as well as best villain.Also worst mother 2016/17

5 Guzma Guzma Guzma is a fictional character introduced in Pokémon Sun and Moon. He is the leader of Team Skull. He specializes in Bug-type Pokémon.

Considering how many villain team leaders we had that try to destroy the world and some crap, Guzma is a fresh of breath air. He's hilarious and just a fun character in general. I also like how he's a foil to Lusamine in every way. - Rue

His battle theme gave him my vote.

Best character easily lived the game and him if u have common sense vote ya boy Guzma

6 Hau

He and Half are among the most cheerful characters ever in my opinion. - HeavyDonkeyKong

If he doesn't appear in the anime, I'll be sad. I can see great interactions between him and Ash, oh and if they give Hau a relationship with Gladion like in the games, that would be great too. - Rue

Oh hell yeah! Give this man a Malasada! Lol. I like this kid! - ClassicGaminer

7 Nanu Nanu

By far my favorite Kahuna. Chill and relaxed but has an interesting back story as well. - cjWriter1997

He's the opposite of outlandish (at first), and you don't see that very often in pokemon, but he plays it off so well. He's my fave kahuna and I have tons of respect for him. Hope to see him do more in the Ultras. - Bliss

I was actually initially going to include him but he ended up getting beaten out by both Acerola and Then Olivia for me in the end. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Most relatable character that actually uses his head. Definitely my favorite character.

Uh This pokemon plays no particular role in the games - ChiefMudkip

He was my starter Pokemon and I loved him! - RoseRedFlower

Not even OU.

Wouldn't use again.

Owls are birds from the order Strigiformes, which includes about 200 species of mostly solitary and nocturnal birds of prey typified by an upright stance, a large, broad head, binocular vision, binaural hearing, sharp talons, and feathers adapted for silent flight. Exceptions include the diurnal northern hawk-owl and the gregarious burrowing owl.

Owls hunt mostly small mammals, insects, and other birds, although a few species specialize in hunting fish. They are found in all regions of the Earth except Antarctica and some remote islands.

Owls are divided into two families: the Strigidae family of true (or typical) owls; and the Tytonidae family of barn-owls. - Maxim_Kali

9 Hapu Hapu

Definitely my favorite of the captain's and Kahuna's aside from Hala. She was most definitely one of the driving points of Lillie's character arc. Also, her very battle is likely probably the second most difficult fight in the game from my experience. Topped only by Totem Mimikyu from my experience. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Secret. She have 30 age. Is wonder woman!

Best of bests

"Secret. She have 30 age. Is wonder woman! "

She's not much older than the player character or is the same age as Gladion. (around 13-15). She has a grandmother who's alive and that wouldn't be possible if she's 30. - Rue

I wish he ended up being one of the elite four

Most serious trial captain with the funniest trial. - Rue

I beat Salazzle with my team no problem! It was so easy!

Yo fire(fire = third favorite type)

The Contenders

11 The Protagonist

You know, for the first time, I actually felt like my game avatar had personality in a Pokemon game. It's especially expressed a lot when you perform a Z-Move. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Yeah, you are given a lot more opportunities and options to talk and answer somebody's questions or maybe just simply reply to either them or the situation, and since they don't penalize you for choosing the negative answer all that much, its less scripted and your not actually forced to answer a very specific thing. Therefore, your protagonist has much more of a personality because well you can just go on ahead and build that very personality all by yourself. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Lillie:, my mother is an evil psychopath, I'm being hunted down by an even more psychotic PETA, and the world is gonna end by the hands of an evil jellyfish!
Player: *stares and smiles*

12 Hala Hala

I didn't expect him to be as cheerful and happy as his grandson, but I'm glad he's not a wise man stereotype that I feared he would be. - Rue

God, I hate this person... - mattstat716

My new favorite E4 Member. Ever. Along with Professor Kukui, he is basically the one who started your adventure. He's just so darn upbeat and cheerful. - HeavyDonkeyKong

13 Plumeria Plumeria Plumeria is a fictional character introduced in Pokémon Sun and Moon. She is an Admin of Team Skull. She is considered the "big sister" of the team, due to how she runs operations strictly but also cares for her underlings. She specializes in Poison-type Pokémon.

Is she the poison trial captain or kahuna? why so much poison

I adore Plumeria.She nearly killed Bryony Rain(Primarina) but I forgive her because of her character.She seems like a boring team skull admin but she is the only admin and was quite developed and can get serious.Her reformation was cool and she gave us a z-crystal of poisonium z.I have used that sometimes.Also,she is a champion defense fight.That is epic.I love Plumeria's character development although it was subtle.
Ribombee Plays

Ribombee has a point,while her development was small and all she is really is an admin,in Scary House,you find her bedroom and learn more about her.She owns a lot of makeup and Lapras and Skitty dolls can be seen on her bed.This shows she is a little girly.Also,I think Guzma actually is crushing on Plumeria.If I was a make,I would make my player character crush on her or Lillie after Lusamine battle.But instead my character crushes on Gladion.I made my female X and Y character crush on Calem ever since she first laid eyes on him,ditto with Moon and(eventually) May with Brendon when I get Oral.Plumeria is also really caring.I say this because when you first meet her,she says she will fight you because you beat up her siblings(with no sweat).She nearly killed my Primarina Max(I used to traditionally name my starters Max but I won't as it's repetitive) and is really strong.Also,she is the only admin.At least there isn't a lit of main team skull bosses *cough Team Flare cough* but ...more

14 Nebby

Well, it makes sense. It HAS a name, so... personality. - mattstat716

The meme "Nebby get in the bag" is really funny


"GET IN THE BAG NEBBY! " - SaltyMcSalt

15 Acerola Acerola

She becomes very close to you within a very short amount of time. Also the most annoyingly difficult of the elite four battles. Can you please stop using confuse ray? I mean like, seriously. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Very kawaii and powerful

16 Wicke

Why does my waifu have no image of her

17 Popplio Popplio

Turns into a majestic water fairy!

18 Mallow Mallow

Mallow? Huh. Where have I heard that before. Oh, well I'll just play on my SNES. (Mario RPG Logo Appears) wait a minute...what if the Mallow in Pokemon died to become the Mario RPG Mallow. Write this down, the Mallow conspiracy theory. - EspioTheChameleon

Mallow is clearly one of the sweetest people on Akala Island and has the better trial than any other trials on Akala. She is pretty and a good cook. She deserves to be at least from 10 to 15.

... Passable. Makes sense, at least gave me SOME reason to use the mount... - mattstat716

Press "A" to pound indeed. She is one hot chick.
