In ''[[SM138|Final Rivals!]]'', Gladion was training with his Pokémon the night before the final match when Lillie and Lusamine approached him and suggested that he get some rest. However, he declined and told them that he wanted to be prepared for the battle. This prompted Lusamine to compare him to Mohn, mentioning that his father frequently became consumed with preparing for battles, even on their wedding day. Gladion's battle against Ash began the next day, with Gladion sending out Silvally to battle Ash's newly-evolved {{AP|Melmetal}}. After Silvally withstood a few hits, Gladion threw a [[Fighting Memory]], allowing Silvally to turn into a {{t|Fighting}} type, which allowed it to defeat Melmetal. Ash then sent out Pikachu and managed to defeat Silvally. Gladion next sent out Zoroark, much to Lusamine's shock.
The battle continued in [[SM139''Enter the Champion!'']], where Gladion and Zoroark used {{m|Never-Ending Nightmare}}. Ash and Pikachu countered with {{m|Breakneck Blitz}}, which resulted in Zoroark and Pikachu getting knocked out at the same time. Then, Ash and Gladion sent out their respective Lycanroc. Gladion's Lycanroc was eventually defeated, losing Gladion the match. Later, he attended Ash's award ceremony, only for it to be interrupted when a {{DL|Ultra Beasts (anime)|Manalo Stadium Guzzlord|Guzzlord}} arrived at the stadium through a wormhole.
In [[SM140]], Gladion helped evacuate innocent civilians to safety. When a second, {{Shiny}} {{DL|Ultra Beasts (anime)|Shiny Guzzlord|Guzzlord}} appeared in the shopping area, Gladion, Kiawe, and [[Hau]] teamed up to fight it. Their efforts nearly failed until Lillie, {{an|Sophocles}}, {{an|Lana}}, and {{an|Mallow}} came to assist them. By combining their Z-Moves into one giant attack, Gladion and the others managed to successfully knock the Shiny Guzzlord back into Ultra Space. Gladion then watched the {{wp|exhibition game|exhibition match}} between Ash and {{an|Professor Kukui}} from [[SM141]] to [[SM144]].
