In ''[[SM044|A Dream Encounter!]]'', Gladion was once again seen calming down Silvally. Gladion suspected that Silvally had detected something, which was the reason for its uneasiness.
In ''[[SM047|A Masked Warning!]]'', Gladion encountered Ash at [[Ten Carat Hill]] after the latter was {{m|teleport}}ed there by [[{{DL|Light trio (anime)|Solgaleo|Nebby]]}}, which Gladion believed to be an {{an|Ultra Beasts|Ultra Beast}}. There, Gladion revealed that the reason Lillie became unable to touch Pokémon was due to her being attacked by the Ultra Beast {{DL|Ultra Beasts (anime)|Nihilego}}. Later, Ash challenged Gladion to a battle using his {{DL|List of Pokémon with form differences|Lycanroc|Dusk Form}} Lycanroc against Silvally. The battle eventually ended with Gladion as the victor. Afterward, Gladion left while telling Ash to not tell anybody about Silvally.
In ''[[SM048|Night of a Thousand Poses!]]'', Nebby teleported Lillie over to Gladion's location. Reacting to Nebby's presence, Silvally leaped in front of Lillie, causing her to remember the incident that led to her fear of touching Pokémon. When Nebby teleported Lillie back to her friends, she realized that she lost the ability to touch any Pokémon again, even the ones she had gotten used to.
Gladion met up with Ash again in ''[[SM055|The Professors' New Adventure!]]'' and informed him that he would be taking part in the island challenge. Before leaving, he explained that he couldn't just sit and be quiet after watching him and Pikachu use their new Z-Move.
In ''[[SM087|Filling the Light with Darkness!]]'', Gladion attempted to calm Silvally down after it sensed the presence of another Ultra Beast. Noticing that Silvally appeared to be scared of the presence, Gladion realized that whatever it was, it must be powerful. Later, he traveled to the Altar of the Sunne, where he joined Lillie, Ash, and their classmates as a member of the [[Ultra Guardians]]. There, Gladion, Ash, {{an|Kiawe}}, and {{an|Lana}} combined their Z-Power to fuel a device that dispersed the dark clouds covering Alola, uncovering an 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. A moment later, a {{DL|RecurringLight wild Pokémon in thetrio (anime)|Lunala}} emerged from the wormhole with a {{DL|RecurringLight wild Pokémon in thetrio (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.
When Gladion first appeared, he was distant from his sister because he blamed himself for why {{an|Lillie}} was unable to touch Pokémon. He is an impatient person, as seen in ''[[SM052|Revealing the Stuff of Legend!]]'', when he demanded the [[guardian deities]] hurry up as they waited to save his [[Lusamine|mother]]. He also has a temper, as seen in ''[[SM049|Mission: Total Recall!]]'', when he harshly scolded Ash for accidentally causing Lillie's traumatic fear of Pokémon to resurface due to his negligence with [[{{DL|Light trio (anime)|Solgaleo|Nebby]]}}. Despite this, Gladion quickly recognized Ash's potential as a Trainer, and after defeating [[Ash's Lycanroc]] in ''[[SM047|A Masked Warning!]]'', thanked Ash for giving Silvally an opportunity to train. He was also motivated to take the island challenge after seeing Ash and {{AP|Pikachu}} perform {{m|10,000,000 Volt Thunderbolt}}. When he first saw {{AP|Poipole}} for the first time, he quickly put up his guard around it due to the fact that Poipole was an Ultra Beast.
As shown in ''[[SM105|Showdown on Poni Island!]]'', Gladion has enough faith in his Pokémon to let them battle each other to train, without giving them any kind of command. He also becomes happy whenever his Pokémon do well, as shown when he congratulated Lycanroc with a fist-bump after it defeated Ash's Lycanroc.
In ''[[SM054|10,000,000 Reasons to Fight!]]'', Umbreon was released from the Mean Look after Silvally used {{m|Multi-Attack}} on Absol, allowing it to continue fighting. When Nihilego had Absol get back up again after Gladion appeared to defeat it, Gladion told Umbreon to take care of Absol before riding off on Silvally to get to Lusamine.
In ''[[SM090|Securing the Future!]]'', Umbreon joined the rest of Alola in showering {{DL|RecurringLight wild Pokémon in thetrio (anime)|Necrozma}} with light so it could return to its {{DL|List of Pokémon with form differences|Necrozma|true form}}.
Umbreon's known moves are {{m|Dark Pulse}} and {{m|Shadow Ball}}.}}
In ''[[SM053|Rescuing the Unwilling!]]'', Gladion used Lycanroc to fight [[Lusamine]]'s {{p|Absol}}, which was controlled by {{p|Nihilego}}, to allow Ash to save Lusamine. It was eventually trapped by Absol's {{m|Mean Look}}. In ''[[SM054|10,000,000 Reasons to Fight!]]'', Lycanroc was released from the Mean Look after Silvally used {{m|Multi-Attack}} on Absol. Soon afterwards, Gladion and Lycanroc used {{m|Continental Crush}} on Absol. Although Absol appeared to have been defeated by this move, Nihilego made it get back up and continue battling. Gladion told Lycanroc to take care of Absol while he rode off on Silvally to get to Lusamine.
It appeared again in ''[[SM087|Filling the Light with Darkness!]]'', where it helped transfer its Z-Power to Faba's machine so it could help clear the skies. In ''[[SM090|Securing the Future!]]'', Lycanroc joined the rest of Alola in showering {{DL|RecurringLight wild Pokémon in thetrio (anime)|Necrozma}} with light so it could return to its {{DL|List of Pokémon with form differences|Necrozma|true form}}.
In ''[[SM105|Showdown on Poni Island!]]'', Lycanroc was training with its teammates when Lillie arrived. Lycanroc was used in Gladion's battle against Ash, going up against Ash's Lycanroc where it won.

|desc={{main|Light trio (anime)#Lunala|Light trio (anime) → Lunala}}
The Ultra Guardians assisted {{p|Lunala}} during its battle with {{DL|RecurringLight wild Pokémon in thetrio (anime)|Necrozma}}. After being freed from Necrozma's control with the help of [[{{DL|Light trio (anime)|Solgaleo|Nebby]]}}, Lunala crashed onto a beach on [[Melemele Island]]. After fending off [[Matori]] and her Matori Matrix, Lunala was brought to the Ultra Guardians base, where, with the combined light of the [[Z-Ring]]s belonging to Ash, Kiawe, Lana, and Gladion, Lunala made a full recovery. Lunala later teamed up with Gladion to help provide enough light for Necrozma to restore its Ultra form using its [[Z-Move]], {{m|Menacing Moonraze Maelstrom}}.}}
