  • Hapu was appointed Kahuna by Tapu Fini the minute the player character enters the Ruins of Hope. The previous Kahuna had passed away some years prior to Sun and Moon.
  • The first trial was held on this island.
  • Poni Island is based on Kauai.
  • Poni Island's name comes from the Hawaiian word "poni," meaning "purple," as both Tapu Fini, the island's guardian god, and Hapu, its kahuna, are associated with the color. It may also come from "pony" as Hapu's signature Pokémon is the horselike Mudsdale.
  • Poni Island is the only island where Ash Ketchum never partook in a minor trial prior to a Grand Trial.
