The title could either refer to the Dragon Holy Land (maybe they stay in Johto after SS009) or another bait-and-switch. Probably the latter.

Could this be the debut of the Dragonite that appeared with Nyasu and Sonansu in the poster? I wonder if it will have a larger role with the TRio as the poster implied or if it’s another bait and switch that the writers seem to love.

I'm guessing this episode's about a Dragonair trying to mature and evolve into a Dragonite, for which it has to pass some kind of ritual/challenge. Hopefully it involves TRio somehow helping the thing out and the newly evolved Dragonite taking a liking for them.

Summary and staff list courtesy of Dephender on Serebii

Professor Sakuragi has told Satoshi and Go about a supposed "island where Kairyu live", and the two of them set off to search for it. They head out to sea riding on a Jugon Go caught on the way, but run into a sudden storm and get swept away by the waves. And when they wake up on the shore of an island, the see a whole lot of Kairyu before them.

Them riding on a Dewgong, which Gou caught is kinda interesting, since it might debunk the theories Gou is gonna catch Mantyke.

Still possible he might catch a Mantyke, Dewgong are much easier for 2 people and Pokemon to ride then Mantyke

Sure it is. But still, they could have mention Mantyke as well, for Pikachu to ride.

True

Can't help but wonder if Go might end up catching a Dragonair or Dragonite this episode, personally I would prefer him to start with Dratini

I doubt it, since on the poster, Dragonite seems to be associated with Team Rocket. Maybe that is their first capture this series (Please, let it be James who catches it, but knowing my luck, Jessie is getting it).

I wonder if the title might refer to this old Pokédex entry in Crystal:
"It is said that somewhere in the ocean lies an island where these gather. Only they live there."

So... they didn’t plan out a ride to the islands and are only successful because they got a Dewgong on the way? And how did they get "on the way" without an aquatic Pokémon? Or they switched rides halfway?

Or it could be a Bewear-like situation.

Didn't it say in those leaks a while back that a Dragonite would be taking the role of Bewear in this generation?
It did, but the leaks said they'd use Lugia for region hopping and that doesn't seem to have happened.

True. I usually take leaks like those with a grain of salt. In my experience, they tend to be half-true with a bit of lies to get the fanbase's hopes up.
