    It's a simple answer. They don't choose their kahunas. Game Freak does.

    This theory should be, "why does Tapu lele keep getting out of my quick ball?"

    What if someone knew this information, and purposely acted like all the Tapu, and maybe became the Kahuna of every island? 😂

    Nanu unleashes his rage upon Team Skull when necessary. Team Skull lives in fear, living right next to him. Also, Nanu and Tapu Bulu are both personalities that don't want to be bothered by others. Nanu lives way out on Route 17, Tapu Bulu lives behind a massive maze of a desert. An NPC mentions this about Tapu Bulu's personality, someone in one of the trailers outside the desert.

    Who’s your favorite tapu and kahuna?

    I think the reason finichose hapu after she went on her own journey is because she grew from what she used to be. Tapu fini has a nuturing, motherly look to her, yet also reserved and quiet - a sort of distant yet protective and loving entity. In a way, tapu fini has a dynamic that could be difficult to match (unlike tapu bulu). Only after her adventure, fini accepted her, meaning she grew into the dynamic stated above. Hell even the music that plays when she's around sounds calming and motherly, a bit like the more gentle songs in the pmd franchise.
    Also hapu is probably a hopeless lesbian--she literally forgets to give you mudsdale bc she was gawking at Lillie. The whole reason she met you the first time on 'ula'ual was to give you the page Mon too. and to add to it she spent a bit of time alone with her.

    Here’s a theory for you, is Magearna the guardian of the Aether Island? Magearna is Fairy like the Tapu and Steel type which fits with Aether Paradise.

    the reason it very obvious at 2:04. its there sense of fashion. the island guardians love color coordination.

  • lizatubeHD Random Vids

    i think they picked the leaders cuz they have they have the same colors

  • Fire Willow Pokemon & more

    Tapu finis eyes in the offical art is like its saying “ YOU WILL BE KAHUNA FOREVER HUHAHAHAHA” but that’s my opinion

  • CoffeeMcCreeps

    As usual you have a very great theory going! Makes you think a bit how long Hapu's grandfather was a Kahuna and why Hapu herself tried to be since as you pointed out: "The Kahuna can't refuse and is a Kahuna until death or getting rid of their titel!" Did she defeat her grandfather in a battle and THEN try to get some recordnizion from Tapu Fini? That is a interesting question, isn't it?
    What we also can se (But that is a funny easter egg. is that they have simular appearence in clothes which.. Yes I am very late to notice it and think about.. But it is a nice touch... And also...Is it just me that think that Nanu reminds about Eeyore in "Winnie The Pooh" if Eeyore was human?

    • CoffeeMcCreeps
      CoffeeMcCreeps 2 months ago

      Hehe,,, I tried before to compare the kahunas with Winnie the Pooh-character... I saw Nanu as Eeyore, Hala as Pooh, Olivia as Kanga and Hapu as Gopher xD.So I had some fun with those thoughts. And you're welcome as always! Just fun to discuss theories ^_^

    • HybridHero
      HybridHero  2 months ago +1

      Haha I can't see Nanu as Eeyore but I can see Hala as an angry Pooh 😂Yeah they do have similar appearances in clothes, but I completely forgot to mention that. Also I think her grandfather passed away and then after that she tried to become the Kahuna. It was mentioned somewhere in the games if I'm not mistaken. Thanks as always buddy :)

    Tapu Koko being the leader makes sense given their personality. Fini and Bulu don't want the post, and Lele isn't emotionally stable enough for this. Koko is the only one wanting to take things into their own hands.
    As for the Kahunas, Hala is the oldest member (though that doesn't necessarily mean he was chosen before. Even if it's likely.), and he's highly respected and liked as a trainer.

    • Shy Tenda

    The Topus are the most immature legendarys up to date. Topu Koko is a battle maniac that will incubate a great evil if it means that he will get a good fight out of it. Topu Lele is basically a brat that will go into terminator mode when someone tells her no, and she refuses to see the consequences of her own actions. Topu Bulu is just flat out lazy and is prone to unreasonable rage for absolutely no reason. Topu Fini is the only one with a good reason, due to her past dealings with humans, however turning your back upon all people is an incredibly immature response. The Topus really need to grow up.

      I personally like how flawed the Tapus are! I think it makes them more animalistic, like a lot of the Pokemon are. Plus it's kind of useless to complain about how the Tapus to "grow up."

    My Personal Idea on -Hau- How Kahunas are Chosen:
    *Melemele Island*
    Tapu Koko: Do YoU lIkE tO fIgHt??
    Hala: I am a Fighting-type specialist.
    Tapu Koko: DeAl.
    *Akala Island*
    Tapu Lele: Shards are nice.
    Olivia: Yeah, sure.
    Tapu Lele: _Healing scales intensifies_
    *Ula'ula Island*
    Tapu Bulu: Ugh, I have to choose again? _Sees Nanu_ Hey, be a Kahuna.
    Nanu: Sure. Give me a beer.
    *Poni Island*
    Tapu Fini: I need a Kahuna to advance the plot.
    Hapu: I have a horse. And my grandpa was the previous-
    Tapu Fini: You have a horse. That's all I need.

    Yet the tapu’s fighting styles are nearly entirely opposite of their kahunas. Foe example koko is a speedy/offensive sp. attacker while hala runs bulky/slow physical fighting types... then again he runs a Lucario in his elite 4 match maybe they are becoming ever more like their respective tapu.

    Great choice of remixers in Casskingdra and Retrospecter. The latter’s really good, but the former’s way too underrated in my opinion.

    Only watched to 2:43 so far excited to find out how you justify nanu being just like tapubulu

    • Dallin Moody
      Dallin Moody 2 months ago +1

      Wow surprisingly good job... one note though neither nanu nor bulu are lazy they’re just perceived as such when really they just have their own way of going about things... not to mention he’s a good man deep down, a hard shelled softy per se.

    The Hapu bit, I'd say it's not that she didn't care about people, it's more that she's socially awkward to her own age group. She was raised by her grandparents and grew up with a lot of responsibilities. Essentially, she was raised on a remote farm around elderly adults for most of her life with limited contact with other children, as any "play dates" would be limited. She "talks funny" for a little girl (she mentions that she didn't talk like the other kids in the games due to how she was raised), she'd clearly get teased about it if she interacted with the other Poni island kids, so I'm thinking she mostly kept to herself to avoid being teased about it. Being a fairly serious and responsible person and typically keeping to herself, Hapu would come off as "not very people friendly" to most strangers, much like Fini.

    Can't believe I wrote that text wall over Hapu

    My question... Why was Nanu chosen at all?

    • HybridHero

      Just like what Shy Tenda said anddd because of what I said in the video :)

    • Claww04Gaming

    • Shy Tenda
      Shy Tenda 2 months ago +4

      Well, Nanu clearly isn't as bad as he sjows up. He IS a cop, after all. You don't decide to do such a job if you don't care at all. He's reliable when you really needs him, but he won't take unecessary risk, preserving teh Statu Quo.
      And it's strongly implied that he decided to inhabit near Skull Team to keeps them in check.
