Despite their two opponents giving them a lot of trouble, Rowlet finally managed to defeat Probopass with Bloom Doom, only for Rockruff to impulsively attack and knock out Rowlet out of its desire to battle Lycanroc alone.

Olivia is highly energetic and sweet by nature. However she is also very clumsy, constantly getting knocked to the ground during simple tasks like walking up the stairs or opening a door. She also possesses the unique ability to communicate with Pokémon on a different level than most people, giving her a natural affinity even with highly guarded and aggressive Pokémon such as Kiawe's Turtonator and Ash's Litten.

Olivia and Nanu decided to head to their respective islands to help the Trial Captains fend off the Ultra Beasts that appeared in Alola. Before they could leave, a Kartana and Buzzwole burst into the building and attacked. Hala decided to fight the two beasts alone and told Olivia and Nanu to go defend their islands.
In PASM26, the Island Kahunas and Trial Captains were revealed to have spent six months on Exeggutor Island training to prepare for another clash with the Ultra Beasts. At some point, Olivia made a Z-Ring for Hau. Once the training was finished, Olivia and Kahili left to join the others and deliver a repaired Z-Ring Kiawe. While they traveled, Kahili revealed a suitcase full of Z-Crystals she had spent the last six months gathering. One of the Z-Crystals was a Lycanium Z, which Olivia had never seen before.
