In the Aether Paradise, you, Gladion & Hau battle through the various Aether employees in a bid to rescue Lillie. This requires you to go to the secret laboratories in the basement of the building.

Soon after that, Wicke appears and indicates that she has history with Gladion, calling him master. Going down to the basement, he asks you not to enter the Secret Laboratory A, but to go to Secret Laboratory B.

Encounter 6: Aether Paradise

Location: Aether Paradise

Fighting through the rest of the Aether Foundation, you will come topside where Gladion will see a line of Team Skull members and barge through them, rushing to Guzma in order to challenge him, but he loses and starts feeling down that all his training and effort was for nothing, with Guzma condescending him in the process.

After you defeat Guzma, he requests you save Lillie and you go in to stop Lusamine. During this, Lusamine reveals that she is Gladion & Lillie's mother and how disappointed she is in them for stealing her Pokémon, Type: Null and Lillie. Then, forcing Cosmog to create a wormhole, her plan comes to fruition, opening Ultra Wormholes throughout the region. Gladion suggests the three of you stop them, with him and Type: Null taking on the Ultra Beasts while you face Lusamine and Hau takes on Guzma. Lusamine then disappears into the wormhole.

After that situation, Gladion thanks you for your help and gives you the Moon Flute/Sun Flute in order to go find Solgaleo/Lunala to bring his mother home. He also gives you the Master Ball. He then takes you and Lillie to Poni Island and suggests looking for the Kahuna to get their assistance.

Encounter 7: Mount Lanakila

Location: Mount Lanakila

After stopping the situation with Team Skull & Lusamine, when you go to take on the Pokémon League, Gladion will appear, thanks you for what you did, and challenges you to a battle to test his strength and understand why Lillie calls you the best trainer in the world. His Type: Null will have evolved and will be of the type that is super effective against your Starter Pokémon.
