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

Most developed character ever! This is minor, but I ship her with the male protag!

She is d best

2 Professor Kukui Professor Kukui Professor Kukui is a fictional character introduced in Pokémon Sun and Moon. He is a Pokémon Professor from the Alola region, as well as the founder of Alola's Pokémon League.

The best Pokemon professor ever created. - Rue

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

"Aw, it's ok, Hau! When you're saying goodbye to someone you love, just give them one last smile! "

-Kukui to Hau when he has to say goodbye to Lillie

s omeone you love
s ome one YOU LOVE
s ome one you LOVE

Ok, but seriously, Kukui is the coolest professor out there. He is there when you need him, and he doubles as a lucha libre/professional Pokémon battler.

HOW SICK IS THAT? Did Professor Oak do that? Didn't think so!

Also, he has something that most other professors didn't. A FAMILY! He has a wife, Professor Burnet, and Lillie was sort of like an adoptive daughter to him.

And also, you can battle him-

R/B/Y Hacker: Um-

Without a glitch.

Hacker: Oh.

Anyways. His champion battle was extremely hard, and it was nice to see that Lycanroc on his team (implying that his Rockruff evolved). And in the ANIME!

In the anime, he acts like a father to Ash. Ash LITERALLY lives at ...more - Absolite

Lusamine may have been the most terrifying.
Lillie may have been the most heartwarming.
But ya wanna know what this very guy was? Or no?

Pure inspiration.

That is what he was.

Honestly, he's most definitely the best professor that we have ever seen yet. He wasn't just handing out Pokemon, he built a new League from the ground up. In the best possible setting. The blood, sweat, hard work, and passion that he poured into his goals, the lessons that he taught you. THE FACT THAT HE ACTUALLY BATTLES UNLIKE MOST OF THE OTHER POKEMON PROFESSORS. Everything about him is nothing but pure awesomeness.

He teaches you the value of love between Pokemon and Trainer, the value of moves, the value of choosing the very moves together, to dream big by building your very own brand new Pokemon league on a peak. He teaches you to be brave, he teaches you to be strong.

And it all culminates in an epic battle while you come at him with everything that you have ...more - HeavyDonkeyKong

3 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

"Get out" best quote in the game.

The edgelord himself is only at 4? how can that be! either way, I adore gladion, as he's just such a great character. he always fought for justice, and his interactions with literally all of the characters in the game are unique and memorable - Mentalheart

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

I never seen her but I like her

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

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

Guzma took me two tries to defeat him! I took out all of Lusamine's pokemon in one hit

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

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)

8 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!

"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

9 Rowlet Rowlet

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

10 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

The Contenders

11 Nanu Nanu

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

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

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.

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.

14 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

15 Nebby

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

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


16 Wicke

It was nice to know that at least 1 Aether Foundation member had 0 bad intentions. - marshadow

17 Mina Mina
18 Litten Litten

Strong cute and funny

Litten is the best fire type starter

Have two littens

She/he is sooo adorable she/he was my first pokemon on the sun game. Then he/she evolved into torracat! Please tell me what comes next in evelution. Look at rowlets evelution it's sooo wired! And popilio has a ball stuck to its nose that horrid why would they make a pokemon like that! I swear when they were making Litten they said '' ok, let's make a pokemon everyone will go awe at! '' Get Litten in it game and vote for her/him! WOO cuties go!

19 Mallow Mallow

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

Literally the best. Who doesn't love a girl who cooks.

Mallow, mallow. A Captain of Alola.
In the Lush Jungle. (Better than Acerola) - Maxim_Kali
