Getting the Band Back Together! (Japanese: 衝撃！ダグトリオ解散！？ Shocking! Dugtrio Split Up!?) is the 23rd episode of the Sun & Moon series, and the 962nd episode of the Pokémon anime. It first aired in Japan on April 20, 2017 and in the United States on July 15, 2017.
Ash and friends are attending a concert by the wildly popular group Dug-Leo, made up of DJ Leo and his partner, a talented Alolan Dugtrio. Everyone wears blonde wigs in Dugtrio’s honor, including Rotom Dex—until its wig is carried off after the show by another fan of the band, an Alolan Diglett!
As the band rehearses for their next concert, Dugtrio’s three heads start fighting over who gets to be lead singer—and Team Rocket swoops in, posing as a talent agency to lure Dugtrio away! Diglett joins our heroes to track them down, and soon the band is back together—and they’ve added Diglett to their ranks!
