I don’t think Kukui will be using a literal Island deity. It’s pretty clear that it’s a wild Pokémon as of the Guzzlord episode.
Most likely the 6th would be a big reveal Galar Pokemon, and as for a reward for beating Kukui, he would probably give Ash an endorsement to compete in the Galar League and fulfil his goal on becoming Pokemon Master.

why would kukui give ash an endorsement when he has nothing to do with galar or the champions cup

Just a guess. Perhaps as well as the trailer for the new anime, we will also see Kukui's sixth Pokemon (Galar Pokemon) revealed for SM142's trailer.

Maybe he's friends with Magnolia who could put a word in for Ash
In the games of Sun, Moon, UltraSun and UltraMoon, he did say that he talks to a Professor from a Region far away. Perhaps Professor Magnolia is the Professor he is talking to, so it is possible.

And, I think that Ash would be endorsed by Leon like in the games.
Ash will only be informed about Galar by Kukui (since he would have for his 6th Pokemon a Galar Pokemon), and how Ash would get the endorsement, only the Anime will know.

I think that it's more likely that someone actually from Galar would tell Ash about the region.

But in that Japanese magazine, in the place of Kukui's 6th Pokemon is a notice about the new Pokemon anime trailer. Plus, in the game, Kukui had 6 Pokemon when battling the trainer when as Champion. So perhaps there's a double meaning in this.

It doesn't have to be a Galar Pokemon. It could be something else.

If that happens, then we can guarantee that the Pokemon series will surely be rebooted to an AU Ash. Which I doubt.
Kukui not using a Galar Pokemon does not mean that the next saga will be an AU reboot. They have other ways of segueing into the next saga, or they could just have a cliffhanger ending like XY.

Kukui might have one in reserve. He/The anime is saving it for a surprise to coincide with the trailer. We won't know till sunday.

What if Kukui has a Sirfetch'd with him?

Also, XY didn't have a cliffhanger ending, as that ended similarly to DP, Ash returning to Pallet Town in a happy note with no mention nor new Pokemon till the first episodes of the next series. That's not surprising because the new Gen games after DP (BW) and XY (SM) are on the same consoles. Whereas since the end of OS and the start of AG, you would see a Pokemon and/or mention of the next Region, with the series transitioning with Ash travelling to that region and end on a cliffhanger with the old series, and begin with the arrival for the new series. Examples are found with OS to AG, AG to DP, BW to XY. All of them are transitions from the old console to the new.

OS (GB/GBC) - AG (GBA)Travelling Transition Cliffhanger (via ferry)
AG (GBA) - DP (DS)Travelling Transition Cliffhanger (via ferry)
DP (DS) - BW (DS)Ash Returns Home / New series starts travelling to new Region
BW (DS) - XY (3DS)Travelling Transition Cliffhanger (via plane)
XY (3DS) - SM (3DS)Ash Returns Home / New series starts in new Region
SM (3DS - PM (Switch)Travelling Transition Cliffhanger (via plane)

Only 4 days from now on guys! Then we will finally see what this new anime is all about. I have to say, I was never that much existed to see a new Pokémon anime. With the other animes, you could tell how they will play out because they stuck to a familiar formula (besides Sun and moon, but back then you didn't know that they will break the formula for this anime).

  1. Ash leaves all his new Pokémon besides Pikachu at Prof. Oak's lab.
  2. His new companions will be a girl and a young man.
  3. TR still tries to steal Pikachu.
  4. Ash loses the league.

With this is anime you do not really know how it will turn out. They could go with so many directions.
