In ''[[SM001|Alola to New Adventure!]]'', Ash traveled with Delia to the [[Alola]] region after [[Mimey]] won the trip via lottery. It was shown that Ash gave his Kalos Pokémon to [[Professor Oak]], who gave him and his mother a Pokémon Egg to deliver to his cousin [[Samson Oak|Samson]]. While on [[Melemele Island]], Ash stumbled upon the [[Pokémon School]], where he met {{an|Lana}}, {{an|Lillie}}, {{an|Mallow}}, {{an|Kiawe}}, {{an|Sophocles}}, Samson, and {{an|Professor Kukui}} and learned about [[Z-Ring]]s and [[Z-Move]]s. Later on, he met {{DL|Guardian deities (anime)|Tapu Koko}}, the [[Guardian deities|guardian]] of Melemele Island, who gave Ash a Z-Ring and an [[Electrium Z]]. With these discoveries, Ash decided to remain in Alola to study at the school and learn more about Z-Moves, living with Professor Kukui.
In ''[[SM002|The Guardian's Challenge!]]''Later, Tapu Koko challenged Ash and Pikachu to a battle. Ash's Electrium Z broke after Ash and Pikachu used the Z-Move {{m|Gigavolt Havoc}} on Tapu Koko. Ash then decided to take on the [[island challenge]] to obtain new [[Z-Crystal]]s and prove his worth.
Ash caught several Pokémon on Melemele Island, such as his {{AP|Rowlet}}, {{AP|Rockruff}}, and {{AP|Litten}}. Ash also got a [[Normalium Z]] after his fight with {{pkmn2|Totem}} {{p|Gumshoos}} on Melemele Island. Tapu Koko gave him a new Electrium Z after Ash won his grand trial battle with Melemele [[Island Kahuna]] [[Hala]]. In addition, Ash struck up a friendly rivalry with Lillie's brother {{an|Gladion}}. He then gained a [[Grassium Z]] and [[Rockium Z]] during his trial and grand trial on [[Akala Island]]. He also briefly reunited with Brock, Misty, and some of his Pokémon during a field trip to Kanto for an extracurricular activity.
InOne ''[[SM044|A Dream Encounter!]]''day, Ash was entrusted to take care of a {{p|Cosmog}} by {{p|Solgaleo}} and {{p|Lunala}}, which he saw in a dream. The Cosmog, nicknamed {{DL|Light trio (anime)|Solgaleo|Nebby}} by Lillie, took a liking to Ash and frequently caused trouble with its ability to {{m|teleport}} people around. In ''[[SM050|Faba's Revenge!]]'', {{an|Faba}} kidnapped Nebby while Ash's attention was elsewhere. When Ash and Lillie learned about this, they enlisted Gladion and {{an|Lusamine}} in helping them rescue it. When the four found Faba, they also found that he successfully forced Nebby to summon a {{DL|Ultra Beasts (anime)|Nihilego}} from an Ultra Wormhole. After Nihilego kidnapped Lusamine and retreated back into the Ultra Wormhole, Ash discovered that the incident caused Nebby to evolve into a {{p|Cosmoem}}.

In ''[[SM052|Revealing the Stuff of Legend!]]'', Ash, his classmates, and Gladion then watched as the {{an|guardian deities}} helped Nebby evolve into the Legendary Pokémon Solgaleo and upgrade Ash's Z-Ring into a [[Z-Power Ring]]. With a [[Solganium Z]] he received from Nebby, Ash activated Solgaleo's Z-Move, {{m|Searing Sunraze Smash}}, and had Nebby opened up an Ultra Wormhole, allowing everyone to traverse through Ultra Space on Nebby's back. There, after Ash's Electrium Z temporarily transformed into a [[Pikashunium Z]], Ash and Pikachu used it to launch a {{m|10,000,000 Volt Thunderbolt}}. The attack defeated Nihilego, weakening it long enough for Lillie and Gladion to pull their mother free from its hold. The Pikashunium Z then reverted to an Electrium Z. With their mission finished, Lusamine was taken back through the Ultra Wormhole to the Altar of the Sunne.
In ''[[SM055|The Professors' New Adventure!]]'', during Kukui's and burnet's wedding reception, Ash and his friends were invited to join an {{an|Ultra Beasts|Ultra Beast}} response task force, known as the [[Ultra Guardians]], which they all agreed to.

On their goalfirst mission, Ash and his classmates were beingassigned to capture a {{pDL|Ultra Beasts (anime)|Buzzwole}} that had appeared through an Ultra Wormhole. The Ultra Guardians encountered Buzzwoleit at [[Mahalo Trail]], where Ash startedeventually battlingrealized it withpreferred Pikachu. Throughout the battle, although Pikachu was ableflexing to land a Thunderbolt, Buzzwole constantly had the upper handbattling. However,As when Kiawe tried to join thea fightresult, it turned out that Buzzwole actually preferred flexing to battling, so Ash and Kiawe started flexing withdistracted it, requiringlong {{Rotom}}enough tofor remindthe Ash that he neededformer to throw a [[Beast Ball]] while the [[Ultra Beast]] was distracted. As such, Ash flung a Beast Ball at Buzzwoleit, successfully capturing it. Later, Buzzwole was brought to [[Melemele Meadow]], where [[Professor Burnet]] temporarily opened a new wormhole, allowing Buzzwole to return back home.
In ''[[SM067|Love at First Twirl!]]'', Ash encountered a {{AP|Poipole}} who seemed strangely attached to Pikachu. After a small incident in which Pikachu went missing, Rowlet was poisoned, and Team Rocket appearing (and consequently disappearing), Poipole was confirmed to be an Ultra Beast. Ash was permitted to capture it, though he failed several times as Poipole thought the catching process was a game. After Ash helped it understand what was really happening, Poipole allowed itself to be captured, and was allowed to stay with the group until they could find its Ultra Wormhole and send it back.

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.
