As our heroes wrap up their Poni Island research projects, they become enveloped in a strange mist. Hapu says the mist, created by Tapu Fini, lets people and Pokémon reunite with loved ones who have passed on. Ash and Torracat meet up with Stoutland, and Mallow has an emotional reunion with her late mother. Worried about her friends, Hapu confronts Tapu Fini, who reunites her with her late grandfather and recognizes her as the new island kahuna! When the mist clears, Lillie and Gladion wonder why they didn’t see their late father—and they’re shocked when Hapu tells them that he must still be alive somewhere!
