In ''[[SM074|Tough Guy Trials!]]'', Ash arrived on [[Ula'ula Island]] for his island challenge, though after being rejected by [[Nanu]] and losing an impromptu "pre-Trial", Ash decided to stay on the island and train under {{DL|Guardian deities (anime)|Tapu Bulu}}. Ash then formally participated in his island challenge in ''[[SM076|A Battle Hand-Off!]]'', which turned out to be a battle against [[Jessie's Mimikyu]], who recently gained a [[Mimikium Z]]. Ash barely won thanks to Pikachu learning {{m|Electroweb}}, as well as being able to once again use 10,000,000 Volt Thunderbolt. In the [[SM077|following episode]], Ash participated in the grand trial, where he faced off against Nanu in a 3-on-1 battle in Nanu's favor, and won, earning himself a [[Lycanium Z]].
 
In ''[[SM087|Filling the Light with Darkness!]]'', mysterious dark clouds appeared over the Alola region, causing all of the adults in Alola to lose their energy and motivation. The next day, Ash and his classmates embarked on their fifth mission to investigate the situation at the [[Altar of the Sunne]]. Shortly after arriving, Lusamine revealed that Gladion would be joining them as a new member. In order to disperse the clouds, Ash, Kiawe, Lana, and Gladion combined their Z-Power to fuel a device that successfully made the clouds disappear, but they uncovered a hidden Ultra Wormhole in the process. Afterwards, Lusamine took the Ultra Guardians into the ruins, where she showed them a mural depicting the {{p|Necrozma|Blinding One}}. Before any attempt to translate the mural could be done, the Ultra Guardians were forced to return outside, where they found the wormhole increasing in size. At that moment, a {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Lunala}} emerged from the wormhole with a {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Necrozma}} chasing after it. In ''[[SM088|Full Moon and Many Arms!]]'', Lusamine's group came to the conclusion that Necrozma was the cause of the Alolan adults' loss of energy. Realizing that Necrozma intended on draining Lunala's Ultra Aura in order to possess it, Lusamine sent the Ultra Guardians off to protect Lunala. The Ultra Guardians chased Necrozma to Melemele Island, where they fought alongside Lunala to drive Necrozma away. Despite their best efforts, Necrozma easily shrugged off the Ultra Guardians' attacks and eventually took over Lunala's body to become {{DL|List of Pokémon with form differences|Necrozma|Dawn Wings Necrozma}}. Soon afterwards, an elite [[Team Rocket]] group known as the [[Matori]] Matrix appeared and attempted to capture Necrozma, only for it to easily break free from their electrified net. After the Matori Matrix retreated, Nebby appeared from a wormhole and fought alongside the Ultra Guardians to free Lunala. With its {{m|Sunsteel Strike}}, Nebby successfully knocked Necrozma off of Lunala, causing it the former to fall into the ocean below. The Matori Matrix returned in order to capture Nebby and Lunala, though the two Legendary Pokémon were freed by Ash's Pikachu and [[Gladion's Silvally]]. The distraction allowed Necrozma to return and possess Nebby instead, causing it to become Dusk Mane Necrozma. Ash tried to free Nebby, but was unable to stop Necrozma from escaping into an Ultra Wormhole. With Necrozma gone, the adults of Alola were restored to their normal selves and the injured Lunala was taken to the Ultra Guardians base to recuperate. When the Ultra Guardians expressed their determination to rescue Nebby, their Z-Rings began shining a light that went into Lunala, healing it in the process.

In ''[[SM090|Securing the Future!]]'', the combined Z-Moves were absorbed by Necrozma, but it wasn't enough to get it to release Nebby. After informing Lusamine's group of the situation, the Ultra Guardians learned that, in the tale of Alola's creation, the people and Pokémon of Alola assisted Solgaleo and Lunala in restoring Necrozma's light by sharing their Z-Power with it. Together, the Ultra Guardians, their Pokémon, Lunala, Poipole's comrades, and everyone else back in Alola shared their Z-Power with Necrozma, causing to release Nebby. Afterwards, Ash and Nebby used {{m|Searing Sunraze Smash}}, while Gladion and Lunala used {{m|Menacing Moonraze Maelstrom}} on Necrozma. The combined Z-Moves fully restored Necrozma's light, giving it the strength to become its true form, Ultra Necrozma, and restore Poipole's home world back to its original state. Afterwards, the Ultra Guardians, Nebby, and Lunala traveled back to Alola through the Ultra Wormhole as Ash said farewell to Poipole, who chose to stay behind.
 
In ''[[SM104|That's Some Spicy Island Research!]]'', Ash and his classmates arrived on Poni Island for their individual research projects for school. Ash's project was to have a grand trial battle. In [[SM109]], Ash battled the newly-appointed Island Kahuna [[Hapu]] in a one-on-one battle and won. Letting Pikachu choose their reward for the completion, Ash received a [[Steelium Z]].
 
===Character===
[[File:Younger Ash XY.png|thumb|250px|Young Ash]]
Ash is an only child who lived with his mother, {{Delia}}, until he left for his [[Pokémon journey]] at the age of ten. His main goal in life, as described in [[EP001|the first episode]], is to be the world's greatest [[Pokémon Master]]. One particular characteristic about Ash that has not changed over the course of the series, aside from his determination and his passion for raising and training Pokémon, is that he is incredibly selfless. He will often go to extraordinary lengths to earn a Pokémon's trust and respect, and to better understand a Pokémon that he sees as troubled. He is also very fair-minded and trusting, a true testament to his good-natured character.
His father has not been introduced. The anime suggests that his father was once a Pokémon Trainer who began his journey in Pallet Town, and that he is still living. In the original, he is also confirmed to have a grandfather, whose son followed his footsteps. An interview with the series' storyboarder [[Masamitsu Hidaka]] confirmed Ash's father is a Trainer on his own journey. According to Hidaka, Ash's father may or may not be introduced in the series, depending on its necessity to further Ash's maturity and development as a Trainer. On the other hand, according to [[Pocket Monsters: The Animation|Takeshi Shudō's novelization]], Ash's father left home to go on a journey right after Ash was born, and never returned since. As he never registered his name in the Pokémon Trainer's list, his whereabouts are unknown.
