Rather than having Gyms in the Alola Region, when children become 11 years old, then they have the ability to go through the region and participate in special Island Trials. These trials are led by Trial Captains, who you don't battle at the time, who give specific tasks and then typically end with a battle against Totem Pokémon, which are larger variants of the Pokémon that have their stats boosted by an aura. There are 7 trials across the Alola Region
