[Tempo. Met me at the VR center. I think I have a plan to make fighting the Ultra Beasts easier. -Daru]
Tempo arrives at the VR center. "So, how good are you in Alolan History?" Daru asked as he went in. “Not very good in it...” Tempo admitted. "Thought so. Perhaps I should give a bit of trivia about Emm. Being a native to Poni Island, she is a follower of the land spirit, Tapu Fini." The Tapu's fought against the Ultra Beasts before, so if we can get them on our side, we can get a serious edge." Daru explained. “Alright. How do we do that?" Tempo asked "That's the tricky part. Only those born on the respective islands will they truly trust. You will still accompany Emm to the Ruins of Hope. Its near where you found Chloe when Cino's siblings were captured. Emm should be at the Kahuna's residence. Head there" “Alright!” He heads there
He meets Emm near the house. “Hey, Emm!” Tempo said. "Hey Tempo." Emm replied with her hands behind her back. “Hm? You alright?” He looks at her arms...gives him a green cap
"Well, Daru told me it was your birthday in a few days, so I got you this."
Tempo puts it on.“Why the hat, though?”
"Just something I though would make you look more cooler."
He blushes. “Thanks. So where it Tapu Fini?”
They soon reached where Tapu Fini was.
Emm and Tempo looked nervous. "Nervous?" Emm asked.
“You remember what happened last time I was here...”
"Oh, right. I nervous because I... never really got to see Tapu Fini in person. I heard her before when I come here."
“Alright... This’ll be a first for both of us...”
They enter the ruins to a room with a totem of Tapu Fini. Emm kneels in front of it.
"Tapu Fini. Being of hope, and guardian of Poni Island. I, Emm, request assistance."

They hear a voice.
"Ah... Emily. It is a pleasure to see you again."
“Wait... You know her?” Tempo asked
"I pray here often. Of course." Emm said.
"I am aware of your plead, but before I am able to help, you and your acquaintance must complete a trial."
Tapu Fini opened a secret door.
The two entered and went into a pool of water, and dove in with some deep breaths...
Tempo looks worried... They might drown here if they’re not careful, and this scared him...
They arrive in a room with a sort of key pad with a message...
Where Tapu Fini is recorded in an encyclopedia will guide you the way.
They looked up the Dex number for Fini: 788.
They typed it in and opened the door.
They find another keypad, this time, with symbols depicting a Minccino, Rowlett, Dewott, Buizel, Chespin, and Piplup, with another message...
The unfortunate fall of the casualties of war shall light the path
Emm sadly inputted Rowlet, Buizel, and Minccino. The door opens.
They entered to the next room with 7 blocks and 7 holes in the walls.
Each block had a symbol. They had a Blue alpha mark, a mermaid tail, an aurora like symbol, a Riolu, a key, a Japanese symbol, and a Helioptile.
The order of events shall enlighten the way.
The two worked together, feeling their chests heaving a little to order the blocks... and then the door opened.
The next room had another keypad with a Huntail, Frillish, Golisopod, Gorebyss, and Wishiwashi.
The order of encounters will show the way through
Tempo entered the buttons in the above order and opened the door...
The next room was a hall, with a door at the end.
When the two swam on, they were suddenly pushed back...
There were icons on the floor and ceiling. The layout was the same on both, and they showcased various Pokémon.
Let your friendships lead the way
Tempo swam through, first, and Emm looks at the icons, wondering what they meant...
"Emm... Our friends..." Tempo said, holding a paw over his mouth...
Emm swam through, worried for Tempo...
Low on air and blue, they slowly swam to the surface for air...
They were able to make it to the surface.
The two gasped for air...
There was a pedestal in the middle of the room that the two headed up to.
"Well done... You passed the trial." Tapu Fini appeared. "I will help you in your cause, as well as give you two gifts..."
To Emm, I bestow upon you my power to summon mist whenever you please.
Light surrounded Emm, and she now knew Mist, and Misty Terrain.
"I also bestow upon a custom Z Crystal made for your new Overdrive form."
She gets a golden Z crystal with a pair of googles as its symbol.
"I also grant the ability that will benefit from your Misty Terrain."
Emm now had Misty Rush
I grant upon you power that suits your personality."
Tempo now knew a new move: Operetta Slash
A note symbol forms on his scalchop.
"I also grant the power that will make harmful sounds... well... not harm you..."
Tempo now had Soundproof alongside his Torrent.
She gives him an amethyst colored Z crystal with a note symbol on it.
"Now, I know you are going to get the assistance of the other Tapus, but I won't be able to help you with recruiting them. You'll need to do that yourself with your friends."
Tempo and Emm nodded, before Fini teleported them back to the surface.
