    I just realised that all the kahunas kind of look like their tapu

    did you ever notice that the kahunas have at least a little bit of the tapu's color on their clothes?
    I also noticed that Hapu and Hala's hat and robe respectively somewhat resembles their respective tapu's shell

    They also have the same colored clothing/Skin. (Skin as in the Tapu skin, I'm not racist just because Olivia is the only black one there)

  • Can we get 500 subs With bad content ?

    I don't see Tapu Koko as the leader. If Tapu Koko is the leader why does it have 570 BST? The master always has the higher base stat. Ho-oh, Lugia, and Rayquaza have 680 BST. Arceus has 720, And Landorus has 600 Regigas also has 670 The master has more power thats why it has the higher stats. I think there should be a fifth master, But then... They part of the alola region... so maybe if we go to a region close to Alola or the west part of America. There should be the fifth master that should either be Normal/Fairy like Regigas Fire/Fairy, Since there isnt fire (and fire is Gamefreak's favorite type.) Or Dragon/Fairy since Dragon is powerful. It should probably have 600 BST, or 610 620 630 640 650 660 but no more than 680 or 670. And *NO SLOW START* so 660. But thats if we go back. Since Sinnoh and Hoenn are both in Japan. Regigas makes sense to be in Sinnoh but the Tapu master has to be in maybe the West America or Another polynesian island. Idk for name though eh?

    Khaled Alafifi 7 months ago

    clothing color and island vibe play a role in choosing not only the kahunas but also the tapus; hala and koko are the first you meet, and hala is always encouraging you, so would you really want nanu's negative words to be the first impression of alola?(bug puns) NO. also olivia is supposed to be the "funny one" on akala, and to be honest, its pretty boring on akala, and shes also supposed to encourage you. but with every good storyline (*cough*XY*cough*) there's gotta be a put down: nanu discourages you as grimsley does in gen 5, plus, liek u said, their both lazy, and plus #2 is that ula ula has a dark and evil or whatever vibe team skull gives u kinda vibe, and so does nanu. a little. hapu, finally, is actually a lot liek fini because their both persistent, are serious, and yet they are also kind hearted. --Fine--

    where you found that picture about Olivia, Lele and the 3 trial captains?

  • Eszter Varga
    Eszter Varga 7 months ago

    I think you have to add something into this video because Nanu is already debuted. And the same lazy like Bulu but in annoying way. And in the rematch he was so savage towards Ash that the wolf needed bring back Ash from the angry emotion because Nanu's tactic is really worked very well. Nanu is able to attack with words what makes the opponent lose their focus and self-confidence. So in short just like Bulu is very brutal in the fight Nanu is the same cruel with words too in the battle.
    I can't wait to see Hapu in action. She is a serious and shy girl in the game.

    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.

    SYLIIC 9 months ago +5

    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.

  • CoffeeMcCreeps
    CoffeeMcCreeps 10 months ago

    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 10 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  10 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.

    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.

      Andres Marrero It sorta makes sense since they have only a BST of 570... not even 580... I feel like there should be a Tapu Master with a 600+ BST maybe its Normal/Fairy or Fire/Fairy..

    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.

  • Dallin Moody
    Dallin Moody 10 months ago +4

    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.

  • Andrew Lloyd
    Andrew Lloyd 10 months ago +32

    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

      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.
