A number of NPCs in Pokemon Sun & Moon ask me to do an errand then return. For example, I have met a scientist who wanted to me to return to him when I'd attained ten Pokemon 'caught' Pokedex entries.

The game doesn't seem to list these quests anywhere, so it's hard to remember what I've been asked to do (and where to go back to turn it in when I have done so).

How many of these people are there, where are they, and what are they after?

    A lot of them seem to be Pokedex-related i.e. 'I'm interested in seeing 'X' Pokemon, can you catch one and show me your Pokedex" etc

    There is no in-game list of quests if that's what you're looking for. You just have to write it down and do it the old school way of keeping track.

There is missing one in Akala Island in which you could do many times: you need to make 6 Pyukumuku leave Hano beach. You do not battle them, tho.
