The Island Challenge replaces gyms in Sun and Moon and Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon: It involves traveling to each of the four islands of Alola: Melemele Island, Akala Island, Poni Island, and Ula'Ula Island.

It is also mandatory to complete a trial, led by Alola's seven trial captains. Each trial involves a unique challenge, followed by battling a Totem Pokémon. Before the battle, Totem Pokemon will usually get a raise in stats. Once the Totem Pokemon has been defeated, the trial is considered to have been completed. You will also have received a Z-Crystal. Once all trials on a particular island are finished, you must battle the Island Kahuna, a strong trainer, in order to progress to the next island.
