Something about the CotDs (maybe their individuality?) from that preview makes me think that one of them is likely to catch it as opposed to Satoshi or Go.

Based on the Lugia raid, it seems that people take turns to battle/catch the wild Pokemon, and this is fair as everyone understands that. In Golurk's case, I doubt that the researchers want to catch it; they probably care about the ruins first and foremost. Ash cares about the thrill of battle, so nothing says that he wants to catch Golurk. I agree that Go shouldn't catch Golurk if he isn't the one doing most of the work, though.

It would be more interesting if a future raid featured multiple wild Pokemon, but that isn't a thing in any of the current games. Maybe they'll be reminded of SOS battles in Alola (did SM ever do anything with it?).
Not out side of Totem Pokemon who summoned ally Pokemon but, there were never any wild SOS battles.

I have a feeling you may be correct but I can't say why.

Edit:
I sort of wonder if they'll explain why he's skiing with Dragonite instead of just having it fly him.

I'm salty about the Rockets not being here but the Indiana Jones stuff looks cool.

Go will probably catch that Litwick and Sandile, Golurk for one of the new characters, Cofagrigus and Darmanitan maybe attack them because of activated traps? Anyway it looks like a fun episode with that Indiana Jones adventure vibe.

Very Indiana Jones-ish stuff...

I hope Ash will battle and catch a Darmanitan with Zen Mode Ability in this episode (there are about 6 of them in the PV).

I'll be honest, Darmanitan and Golurk would be more suitable on Ash's team then on Go's, given how they barely get any focus

Go getting Litwick will be alright
