Because Lillie isn't a Pokémon trainer, she asks Sun if could take her back to Iki Town. When they reach Iki Town, they are met by Hala and Kukui. Lillie tells them of what happened at the bridge, and Kukui and Hala reward Sun for his bravery his own starter Pokemon. Kukui then gives Sun the Rotom Pokedex and a Trainer Passport.
