|“||What does a Pokémon Trainer really need to be successful? I guess everyone might have their own answer. But for me... I want the strongest rival for myself..||„|
Gladion is a former member of the Aether Foundation and the son of Lusamine. He originally lived in harmony with his family in Aether Paradise until he noted his mother's obsession with the Ultra Beasts. Realizing the Ultra Beasts would bring ruin to Alola should they be released, Gladion left the foundation and stole one of their Type: Nulls. He then set out to stop Lusamine and free his Type: Null from its mask while working as an enforcer of Team Skull.
