Gladion debuts in ''[[PASM04|The Decision and the Tournament of Six]]''. He first appeared as a participant at an [[Iki Town]] festival tournament. Initially, he was away when the placement of the participants was being decided, but returned just when the tournament started. His reason for his absence was due to him investigating a [[Ultra Wormhole|crack in the sky]] his {{TP|Gladion|Type: Null}} had sensed.
In ''[[PASM05|The Announcement and the Prize]]'', Gladion was paired upfaced against [[Hau]],. theWhen grandsonHau ofmentioned he joined the [[Islandtournament Kahuna]]because [[Hala]].he Duringthought theit'd battlebe fun, Gladion askedcalled Hauhim whyweak heand decidedwon tothe joinbattle. theIn tournament''[[PASM06|The Party Crasher and assumedGuzma Hauthe wishedDestroyer]]'', toGladion's surpassnext hisopponent grandfather.was WhenMoon, Hauwho repliedwanted thatto heknow joinedabout becausethe heUltra thoughtWormhole. itGladion wouldagreed beto tell funher about it, Gladionbut beratesonly himif andshe callsmanaged himto weakdefeat him.

Sun refused to faceteam up with someone who works for villains and decided to defeat him with his newly-mastered Z-Move. Due to not having a Z-Ring, Sun attempted to borrow Kiawe's, but it was destroyed by Type: Null before he could take it. Although Gladion claimed Sun wouldn't have won even with the Z-Move, a voice appeared, claiming that Gladion wouldn't have destroyed the Z-Ring if he believed that. The voice is revealed to be [[Ultra BeastKahili]]s, who has her Pokémon distract Type: Null before delivering Sun his own Z-Ring.

In ''[[PASM11|Homecoming and the Brilliant Professional Golfer]]'', Sun and Moon traveled to [[Memorial Hill]], where they find a defeated [[Kiawe]] lying on the ground, unconscious. Kiawe reveals that Gladion attacked him in order to get info on the location of the [[Ruins of Life]], where {{p|Tapu Lele}} resides. In ''[[PASM12|The Wild Full-Power Pose of Fire]]'', the three travel to the ruins, where they encounter Gladion, who managed to find and easily kidnap Tapu Lele. Moon reveals that Tapu Lele must be resting from the injuries it sustained when it fought a {{p|Xurkitree|mysterious creature}} that emerged above [[Lush Jungle]]. When asked by Moon about his intentions, Gladion reveals that he intends on capturing the guardian deities. Moon assumes Gladion must need the deities to fight off the Ultra Beasts and suggests that they work together. Sun refused to work with someone who chooses to work with villains and decides to defeat Gladion with his newly learned Z-Move.
Due to not possessing a Z-Ring yet, Sun is forced to borrow Kiawe's Z-Ring, but it is destroyed by Gladion's Type: Null before he can receive it. Gladion reveals that he was forced to forfeit the Iki Town tournament due to Hala discovering that Sun obtained a Sparkling Stone from Tapu Koko. Although Gladion claims that Sun wouldn't have won even with the Z-Move, a voice appears and points out that if Gladion truly believed that, he wouldn't have destroyed Kiawe's Z-Ring. The voice is revealed to be [[Kahili]], who uses her Pokémon to attack Type: Null before sending Sun a Z-Ring created by Hala. Sun puts on the Z-Ring and prepares to use it to defeat Gladion.
In ''[[PASM13|Unleashing the Incredible Z-Move]]'', the attack succeeds, causing Type: Null's mask to start breaking. Gladion, fearing what would happen if the mask shatters completely, switches out for his Porygon. Sun attempts Inferno Overdrive again, but the attack fails, leading to Dollar's defeat. Gladion decides to give up on capturing Tapu Lele, calling it too weak to help him fight the mysterious creatures. Gladion reveals that the cracks in the sky are not an opening but an exit, and that something must be trying to break free into their world.
In [[PASM14]], Gladion traveledarrived toat [[Po Town]], Team Skull's base of operations. There, he was attacked by the Team Skull Admin, [[Plumeria]], who wanted to see if Gladion was skilled enough to be an Enforcer. Though Gladion provesproved to be strong enough for the rolehimself, his negative attitude angersangered Plumeria to the point where she refusesrefused to accept him as a true member of Team Skull. When Plumeria tellstold Gladion to follow her, Gladion compliescomplied, but iswas momentarily distracted when a {{p|Zygarde}} {{DL|List of Pokémon with form differences|Zygarde|Core}} jumpsjumped past him.
In [[PASM19]], Gladion appeared at Po Town, where he found Guzma using three Ultra Beasts to attack the [[Trial Captain]]s and Hau. Gladion demanded that Guzma reveal who gave him the beasts as well as the {{p|Cosmog}} he used to open an [[Ultra Wormhole]]. Guzma, annoyed at the accusation that someone is controlling him, sent out his {{p|Golisopod}} to attack, but Gladion managed to dodge it. When Guzma asked to know why Gladion agreed to join Team Skull, he revealed that his true goal is to destroy the Ultra Beasts.
Gladion had Type: Null battle the beasts Guzma summoned, and due to its nature as a Pokémon specifically designed to fight Ultra Beasts, Type: Null was able to inflict more damage on the beasts when the Captains' Pokémon were barely able to make a scratch. Gladion revealed to everyone that Type: Null was created by the [[Aether Foundation]] and that [[Lusamine]], the Aether Foundation's president, is just using Guzma to fuel her desire to create a paradise for herself and the Ultra Beasts she loves so much. Guzma rejected Gladion's accusation, but was captured by a {{p|Nihilego}} before he can finish talking. Moon tried to rescue Guzma, but was stopped by a {{p|Xurkitree}}, allowing Nihilego to drag Guzma into an Ultra Wormhole. Afterward, the other Ultra Beasts escaped from Po Town's barrier, allowing them to wreak havoc on the rest of [[Ula'ula Island]]. When the Captains asked Gladion what they can do to help, he refused to answer due to them claiming that his statements on Lusamine's motives were just lies. He then states that they wouldn't be able to fight the beasts regardless and rides off on Type: Null.
