Nearby, Ash is doing some shopping before noticing the battle and they go down for a closer look. They arrive and watch as Lycanroc knocks Blastoise out. Rotom tells Ash that as Gladion has Lycanroc and Umbreon, he must be the mysterious trainer. Ash runs over to Gladion as he recalls Lycanroc and introduces himself as someone calls Gladion's name. They both look and see Lillie arrive with Snowy and [[Hobbes]]. Lillie runs over to Gladion, revealing him to be her older brother.
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. Gladion tells Lillie to take care of Snowy and goes to leave but Hobbes asks him to come with them to the mansion. Gladion declines as Ash tries to get Gladion to have a battle.

Gladion tells Ash that he'll consider having a battle and leaves as Ash tells him that he is staying at Professor Kukui's house.
