Gladion (Japanese: グラジオ Gladio) is an enforcer of Team Skull. He can also be seen as a rival to the player in Pokemon Sun and Moon.

In the games

Gladion appears in Pokémon Sun and Moon. He originally helped with the Aether Foundation with his mother, and president of the Aether Foundation, Lusamine and sister Lillie. However, over time he noticed his mother's obsession with the Ultra Beasts. Realizing his mother would ruin Alola if she let Ultra Beasts into the world, he left the foundation, only telling Wicke, the caring assistant of the foundation, of his departure. Before leaving, he stole one of the three Type: Null created to be a weapon to attack Ultra Beasts.

Upon leaving the Aether Foundation, Gladion had two goals: to stop his mother and to free Type: Null from the helmet that was meant to subdue it. He eventually worked as an enforcer for Team Skull but was never considered an actual member of the team.

In Pokémon Sun and Moon, Gladion first meets the player on Route 5 as a Team Skull member, but he doesn't seem to be interested in Team Skull's affairs, unlike the grunts near him. After his second fight with the player, he realizes the player might be able to help him stop Lusamine. After the third battle, he informs the player Team Skull is after Cosmog. Knowing now Team Skull is helping Lusamine get Cosmog back, he tells the player that they should make sure Cosmog is safe. When Lillie gets captured after the player defeats Guzma in Po Town, Gladion takes the player to the Aether Foundation to face Lusamine and save both her and Lillie. Gladion is also encountered on the way to the newly-finished Pokémon League. He thanks the player for stopping Lusamine and reveals he has removed his Type: Null from its restraint, evolving it into Silvally.

After the player has become Champion of the Alola region, Gladion has taken over as acting president of the Aether Foundation while Lusamine is away. He may be spoken to at the Aether Paradise's conservatory, where he will give the player a Type: Null of their own.

Gladion may be battled again as the player defends their title as Champion.
