Olivia and Professor Kukui send the class out to find ingredients for Akalan Curry in groups of two. The team of Ash and Mallow find their task more challenging than expected, especially in getting past angry Fomantis, an Alolan Parasect and an Alolan Diglett. Their search for the final ingredient brings them face-to-face with a Totem Lurantis. Ash and his Pokémon must now battle Lurantis and its partner Castform, but there may be more to this than meets the eye.

The time has come for Ash, now armed with his new Grassium Z-crystal, to face Olivia in the Akala Island Grand Trial Challenge, and Rockruff wants to battle Lycanroc even before the Trial gets underway. This will be a Double Battle; Olivia brings out a Probopass to partner her Lycanroc, and Ash chooses Rowlet to partner Rockruff. The battle is intense, with both Olivia and Ash using Z-moves. With Ash's new Grassium Z-move Bloom Shine Extra, Rowlet defeats Probopass, but then the unthinkable happens: Rockruff wants to battle Lycanroc so fiercely on its own that it attacks Rowlet without thinking when Ash orders Rowlet to help Rockruff. Rockruff is horrified by what it's done, but Ash forgives and encourages his Pokémon, and Rockruff goes on to defeat Lycanroc. Olivia presents Ash with a Rockium Z-crystal, telling him that Rockruff may evolve soon, and Tapu Lele appears to honor Ash and Rockruff.
Join Ash Ketchum, accompanied by his partner Pikachu, as he travels through many regions, meets new friends and faces new challenges on his quest to become a Pokémon Master.
