Trivia

  • Hala is the first trainer who isn't a regional professor to give out Starter Pokémon to new trainers.
  • Hala's name likely comes from "holler" (to shout, often done by martial artists to psych themselves up). It may also come from 腹 (hara, stomach, as sumo wrestlers are often overweight).
  • The man who is in his house's kitchen mentioned that Hala stopped acting too serious around Hau after seeing how his then younger grandson cried upon seeing his serious look.
