Tapu Koko is a special Pokémon that protects the area where it lives. It's called the guardian deity of Melemele Island, one of the islands of the Alola region. Although it's known as a guardian deity, it's a surprisingly fickle Pokémon, and will not necessarily come to your aid if you need help.
Despite that, Tapu Koko has a strong sense of curiosity. If it becomes interested in a person or in other Pokémon, it may come to play or battle with them.
