Ash says he would love to battle that trainer hopes it will happen some day. In town, a crowd has gathered to watch a battle as a {{DL|Sailor|Blastoise}} is knocked into a fountain as its trainer who is a {{tc|Sailor}} who is battling Gladion wonders how much power his Lycanroc can have as Blastoise emerges from the fountain, still able to battle.

Ash runs over to Gladion as he recalls Lycanroc and introduces himself and calls his battle incredible and asks for a battle as someone calls Gladion's name. They both look and see Lillie arrive with Snowy and [[Hobbes]]. Lillie runs over to Gladion, surprised that the mysterious trainer was her older brother which surprises Ash and Rotom. Gladion sees that Lillie can touch Pokémon which he is glad to see as Lillie introduces him to Snowy as Hobbes tells Gladion that she has been raising Snowy since it was an egg and this is the first time a Pokémon has been in her charge. Gladion tells Lillie to take care of Snowy and goes to leave but Hobbes asks him to come with them to the mansion but Gladion says not this time as Ash tries to get Gladion to have a battle as he wants to become a Pokémon Master as Gladion notices Ash's [[Z-Ring]] which Ash says he got directly from {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Tapu Koko}} which surprises Gladion as Lillie tells him that Ash has even battled Tapu Koko.

Later at Lillie's mansion, Lillie explains to Ash that Gladion left home about six months ago having wanted to train by himself and Hobbes, whilst providing food to Snowy, Pikachu and Rotom says that Gladion wanted to improve on his battling skills and ruminate on his life which is what he understood which Ash finds cool but Lillie notes that Gladion used to be sweet, gentle and kind but that wasn't the Gladion they saw today and its as if he was a different person altogether as Snowy jumps onto Lillie's lap. Seeing Snowy and Lillie reminds Gladion of a scene where in the past, Gladion had brought an injured {{p|Eevee}} home, he ran outside to Gladion who says that he found Eevee in the fall grass where it was hurt and crying and asked Hobbes to do something to help where Hobbes took Eevee from Gladion praising his compassion and said he would give it first aid before taking it to [[Nurse Joy]] and assures Gladion that Nurse Joy can look after Eevee. Lillie says she never knew about that as Hobbes explains Lillie was still a small child at the time but there is no doubt that Gladion is a generous person at heart as Ash remembers Gladion telling Lillie to take care of Snowy before he left and calls Gladion a nice guy.
+
As Rockruff gets up, ready to battle, Team Rocket fire two nets which capture Lycanroc and Pikachu. As Gladion asks who they are, they recite their motto as Ash demands they give them back their Pokémon. Team Rocket drive off in a truck as Ash, Gladion and Rockruff chase after them.

That night, Ash has told Professor Kukui about his encounter with Gladion who is amazed that Blastoise was over powered as Pikachu and Rockruff play right whilst Rowlet and Litten sleep only for Litten to be disturbed when Rockruff bumps into it. Litten isn't happy about it as Rockruff tries to play with Rowlet before going over to Professor Kukui and Ash, rubbing against them affectionately leading Professor Kukui to guess that Rockruff has become a fan of the Lycanroc which Ash says he thought was the coolest Lycanroc he has seen. Outside a {{p|Wimpod}} scurries along the beach as inside, everyone has fallen asleep but Pikachu is awoken by knocking and looks up to see Umbreon on top of the roof, peering through the open window and tries to wake Ash up but only manages to do it but using {{m|Thunderbolt}} which also wakes Litten, Rockruff and Rowlet up as Ash asks why Pikachu did that, Pikachu points to the window where Umbreon drops a note which Ash reads and becomes excited as Rotom asks what it is about.
+
After learning that Ash doesn't have the Rock type [[Z-Crystal]], Gladion tells him to go to [[Akala Island]] and pass its grand trial. As they go to finish their battle, Lillie arrives and Rotom reminds Ash that it is nearly time for School as Ash realizes how late it is as Gladion tells them they'll have to finish it later and he finds it difficult with Lillie watching as Ash agrees as Gladion leaves as Lillie comes over to Ash, asking where Gladion is only to learn that he has left and she was hoping to force him to come home for one day.
 
Jessie leads her teammates along the beach as James wonders why they had to get up so early as he, Meowth and {{TP|Jessie|Wobbuffet}} yawn, Jessie says that if {{an|Bewear}} finds them before they swoop in, it will be game over for the day before noticing Gladion and Umbreon and recognize him from before and wonder what he is doing here as James notices the sun coming up which they find beautiful as Ash arrives and meets up with Gladion who informs him that he asked him here to test his battling skills so he can see what Tapu Koko sees in him. Team Rocket look on, wondering what Gladion wants with Ash as Ash calls Rockruff out to battle and Gladion responds with Lycanroc with Ash telling Rockruff to give it its all despite battling its hero. Watching this gives Jessie the idea to use this opportunity to catch Lycanroc and Pikachu for the boss. Ash starts the battle by having Rockruff use {{m|Bite}} which Rockruff hits Lycanroc with but Lycanroc soon throws Rockruff away as Ash orders a Rock Throw but Gladion has Lycanroc counter with Stone Edge which smashes through Rock Throw, aiming straight at Rockruff who runs but Gladion has Lycanroc chase after Rockruff to use {{m|Crunch}} which stops Rockruff from running allowing it to be hit by Stone Edge before being hit by Lycanroc's Crunch. As Rockruff gets up, ready to battle, Team Rocket fire a net which captures Lycanroc before firing a second net to catch Pikachu. As Gladion asks who they are, they recite their motto as Ash demands they give them back their Pokémon but they refuse and drive up in a truck as Ash, Gladion and Rockruff chase after them and Rockruff manages to catch up with them and grabs hold of the net as Jessie orders James who is driving to take action as Gladion orders Umbreon to use {{m|Dark Pulse}} which flattens a tire, sending the truck out of control as Rockruff uses Bite on the net to free Pikachu and Lycanroc.
 
 
Jessie isn't happy at them getting away and are confronted by Pikachu and Lycanroc but before Ash can command a move, Gladion asks to let him deal with Team Rocket and they power up to use {{m|Continental Crush}} which amazes Ash as Team Rocket become worried by what they see coming their way. Lycanroc hits them with Continental Crush which sends them blasting off only for Bewear to push itself into the air using the trees and catches them and takes them back to its den. Amazed, Ash tells Gladion that he wants to try a {{type|Rock}} [[Z-Move]] as well and Gladion asks him if he has the Rock type [[Z-Crystal]] which Ash says he doesn't so Gladion tells him to go to [[Akala Island]] and pass its grand trial which Ash agrees to and as they go to finish their battle, Lillie arrives and Rotom reminds Ash that it is nearly time for [[Pokémon School]] as Ash realizes how late it is as Gladion tells them they'll have to finish it later and he finds it difficult with Lillie watching as Ash agrees as Gladion tells him about the look in Rockruff's eyes is similar to that in Lycanroc's eyes before leaving as Lillie comes over to Ash, asking where Gladion is only to learn that he has left and she was hoping to force him to come home for one day.

Blurb

When Lillie’s big brother Gladion arrives on Melemele Island, everyone is excited about the powerful new Trainer in town—particularly Ash, who really wants to battle him! After hearing about Ash’s Z-Ring and his battles against Tapu Koko, Gladion agrees to meet up the next morning.

The battle is just getting started, with Ash’s Rockruff against Gladion’s impressive Lycanroc, when Team Rocket swoops in. Gladion and Lycanroc unleash a new Z-Move to send them blasting off again, and Ash is immediately interested in continuing the island challenge so he can get a Rock-type Z-Crystal!

School is starting, so the battle is postponed—but it seems Ash has a new rival!

Plot
