With Aether Paradise Island and President Lusamine out of the way - for now at least - it's back to the last leg of your Alolan Island Challenge.
That means it's time to visit Poni Island, a welcome respite from the frantic past few steps on your journey as it plays home to the laid-back Seafolk Village and rural Poni Wilds.
Seafolk Village - Dragon Ascent and Draco Meteor Move Tutors, Aerodactyl
Seafolk Village is a charming settlement on the southern shores of Poni Island. Home to some Pokémon-shaped houses, a large central tree, and a very powerful TM shop in the Pokémon Center, it's a nice change of pace.
For now, there's not too much do to here, aside from a couple of interesting items - and Pokémon - to collect from the townfolk. Lillie is waiting for you just up ahead at the big tree, for a little debrief of the past few days' events.
Head over to the woman in the fish-shaped house on the right, and she'll ask you to show her an Alolan Raichu for a reward. A girl in the same house, meanwhile, will give you the item Lucky Punch, whilst there's TM91 Flash Cannon outside that same house again, next to the fisherman on the porch.
There are also move tutors for both Rayquaza's exclusive move Dragon Ascent, from the man in red in the Pokémon Center, and the Dragon-type exclusive move Draco Meteor, from the Ace Trainer who's also in the Pokémon Center. The Center's TM shop also has some very powerful moves for sale, too.
You can also earn Heart Scales, by eating a meal at the restaurant in Seafolk Village, and there's even a closed shop which houses a man that feels so guilty about it, he gives you both the Magmarizer and Electirizer items for evolving Magmar and Electabuzz respectively. In the very same shop, a girl with a Pelipper will also just casually ,hand over an Aerodactyl to you, should you fancy it!
Not a bad little village, then. You do have to leave at some point though, as nice as it is here, so once you're all done head north, towards the Poni Wilds.

The Poni Wilds are a twisting, rural route to the north of Seafolk Village, that don't house an awful lot of note outside of the usual trainers, items, and Pokémon.
This is your first chance to own an Alolan Exeggutor, however, as Exeggcute are available to catch here, and can be evolved into Exeggutor with relative ease.
Other than that, it's a case of doing what you do best - investigating, collecting, battling and catching before heading on to the next route and beyond.
