Wanna see what destruction looks like? Here it is in human form, it's your boy Guzma!
~ Guzma


Guzma (Japanese: グズマ Guzma) is the leader of Team Skull.

Guzma wanted to become a Trial Captain. He was even Hala's apprentice to train in battling. However, since he was denied, due to his desire to beat other people, rather than respect them in battles, Guzma formed Team Skull and started his own plans to frighten others.

He is first encountered at Malie Garden and mocks Professor Kukui for trying to make a league. He then battles the player character after seeing the Z Ring. He ends up losing and leaves. He is then encountered at Po Town in the big house. He is at the top and has a lot of Buginium Z. He is defeated yet again and leaves the room. He is later revealed to be working with Lusamine because she had pointed out how strong he was. He will block the entrance to the mansion where Lusamine's secret lab is. After the wormhole is opened, he will go into Ultra Space to capture Ultra Beasts. He is encountered in Ultra Space after being possessed by a Nihilego. He states that its the first time he has actually been scared. He will be teleported out by Solgaleo or Lunala.
