Pokémon Sun and Moon have four Guardian Deities from whom you can learn a couple of supernatural abilities and powers. Tapu Koko, Tapu Lele, Tapu Bulu and Tapu Fini are first introduced in these games. To successfully catch them however, it takes a certain Pokémon and strategy. Here's the latest guide on which Pokémon are best used to catch all four Guardian Deities and how to unlock their exclusive abilities on Pokémon Sun and Moon.
Pokémon Sun And Moon - Tapu Koko
The Guardian Deity of Melemele Island, Tapu Koko is an Electric/Fairy Pokémon whose weaknesses include Poison and Ground types. One of the best Pokémon to use against Tapu Koko is Salazzle, a Poison/Fire Pokémon. Its Special Attack at 111 is best to go against Tapu Koko. Salazzle's Venoshock causes great damage which can double the power to 130 if the opponent is poisoned. Decidueye, a Grass/Ghost Pokémon, is also good for your lineup. Before you can face off with Tapu Koko, you have to become an Alolan Champion. You can defy this Guardian Deity by touching the statue at the Ruins of Conflict.
Pokémon Sun And Moon - Tapu Lele
The Guardian Deity of Akala Island, Tapu Lele is a Psychic/Fairy Pokémon whose weaknesses are Poison, Ghost and Steel Pokémon. Lunala, being a Ghost Pokémon, can counter Tapu Lele's power. Its HP at 137 is of big help to survive during the battle knowing that Guardian Deities have the unique ability to take away half of it. Also, Lunala's Attack and Special Attack stats are way stronger than Tapu Lele's Defense and Special Defense stats. Before you can battle it out with Tapu Lele, it requires you the Machamp Poke Ride and touch the statue at the Ruins of Conflict.
Pokémon Sun And Moon - Tapu Bulu
The Guardian Deity of Ula'ula Island, Tapu Bulu is a Grass/Fairy Pokémon whose weaknesses include Flying, Steel, Ice, Poison and Fire creatures. Like Tapu Lele, you can use Lunala at the forefront of your team to go against Tapu Bulu. To meet Tapu Bulu, you need to reach Haina Desert, solve a puzzle to find the Ruins of Abundance where you can touch the statue.
Pokémon Sun And Moon - Tapu Fini
The Guardian Deity of Poni Island, Tapu Fini is a Water/Fairy Pokémon whose weaknesses include Poison, Electric and Grass Pokémon. The best Pokémon to bring at the front against Tapu Fini are Lunala, Decidueye and Kartana. You can use the latter's Bloom Doom to give Tapu Fini a full force attack. You will encounter Tapu Fini at the Ruins of Hope. Take note that you'll need the Machamp.
