no edit summary
In ''[[SM042|Alola, Kanto!]]'', Kukui accompanied his students and [[Samson Oak]] to [[Kanto]] for an extracurricular activity, where they visited [[Professor Oak's Laboratory]]. In the [[SM043|following episode]], he and the others traveled to the [[Cerulean Gym]], where his students battled {{an|Misty}} and {{an|Brock}}. Seeing these battles inspired him to realize his childhood dream an official Pokémon League in Alola.
In ''[[SM044|A Dream Encounter!]]'', Kukui told Ash about [[Professor Burnet]] and her research on [[Ultra Wormhole]]s. He later introduced her to him when she, along with the president of the [[Aether Foundation]] [[Lusamine]], [[Faba]], and [[Wicke]], visited his home to meet Ash and [[{{DL|Light trio (anime)|Solgaleo|Nebby]]}}. During his class's sleepover in ''[[SM048|A Dream Encounter!]]'', Kukui began to bond with Burnet, who also stayed over at his house.
In ''[[SM051|Family Determination!]]'', Kukui accompanied his students to the [[Altar of the Sunne]] on [[Poni Island]] to catch up with {{an|Lillie}}, who had ran away from home with her brother, {{an|Gladion}}, in search of a way to save Lusamine, who had been abducted by a {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Nihilego}}. [[SM052|Later]], while watching Alola's [[guardian deities]] bless Nebby, he received a phone call for help from Professor Burnet and left to help her out. He soon witnessed Burnet and her {{p|Munchlax}} being surrounded by a group of {{p|Jangmo-o}} and {{p|Hakamo-o}}, but using his {{p|Braviary}} he was able to drive the Scaly Pokémon off. By the time the two professors returned to the altar though, Ash and the others had already ridden off on Nebby into an [[Ultra Wormhole]]. Kukui and Burnet stayed behind and waited until the group [[SM054|finally]] returned with Lusamine.
The Masked Royal reappeared in ''[[SM081|A Young Royal Flame Ignites!]]'', where he faced a member of the [[Revengers]], [[Mr. Electric]], and his {{p|Electivire}} in a Battle Royal. However, due to interference [[Mad Magmar]]'s {{p|Magmortar}}, Mr. Electric was disqualified. The Masked Royal then got challenged by Mad Magmar to a battle for the title of the strongest fighter, which he accepted. The next day, Kukui accompanied Burnet and his students to the Battle Royal Dome, but began feeling nervous as he had to take on his role as the Masked Royal without his identity being found out. After managing to sneak away, he was able to reach the ring in time, where his battle would begin. However, Mad Magmar played dirty again by having other members of the Revengers gang up on Incineroar until Ash's Torracat interfered. Teaming up with Torracat and Ash, the Masked Royal and Incineroar took on Mad Magmar and Mr. Electric and eventually managed to beat them, despite all the interference.
In ''[[SM087|Filling the Light with Darkness!]]'', mysterious dark clouds appeared over Alola, leaving Kukui and all other adults tired and without motivation. [[SM088|Later]], after this was resolved, Kukui met up the [[Ultra Guardians]], Burnet, Lusamine, Faba, and Wicke inside the Ultra Guardians base, where he oversaw {{DL|RecurringLight wild Pokémon in thetrio (anime)|Lunala}} recovering. [[SM089|Later]], when the Ultra Guardians left for [[Ultra Space]] with Lunala, Kukui and Faba volunteered to aid them. On [[Ten Carat Hill]], he and Faba confronted [[Team Rocket]]'s [[Matori]] Matrix by using their Pokémon to damage the team's airship and prevent them from entering the Ultra Wormhole. Afterwards, Kukui and Faba faced [[Gozu]] and his {{me|Aggron}} in battle, but their Pokémon were swiftly beaten. In [[SM090|the next episode]], Kukui asked Faba if he had more Pokémon, and the latter replied he did not. Thus, Kukui was forced to send out his Incineroar and perform its Z-Move, {{m|Malicious Moonsault}}, which managed to defeat Mega Aggron. However, this also caused him to reveal his secret identity to Faba, who in turn revealed that he was a big fan of the Masked Royal. Later, alongside Incineroar and Faba, Kukui joined the rest of Alola in showering {{DL|RecurringLight wild Pokémon in thetrio (anime)|Necrozma}} with Z-Power so it could return to its {{DL|List of Pokémon with form differences|Necrozma|true form}}. After Necrozma returned to its Ultra form, Kukui watched as the Ultra Guardians, Nebby, and Lunala returned to Alola, alongside Faba, Burnet, Lusamine, and Wicke.
In ''[[SM092|Turning the Other Mask!]]'', the Masked Royal announced a handshake event to be held on Melemele Island. When Ash and Burnet told Kukui they wanted him to go with them to the event, Kukui asked [[Molayne]] to help keep his Masked Royal identity a secret. The day of the event, Molayne prepared to change into the Masked Royal costume, only to be tied up by Faba and [[James]], who had mistaken him for an imposter. When Mad Magmar came around looking for revenge, Faba donned the Masked Royal costume and tried to defeat him with Incineroar, only to be easily defeated. After freeing himself, Molayne had his {{p|Magneton}} shut the lights off, giving Kukui the time to slip back into his Masked Royal costume and defeat Mad Magmar.
