The training is for Lycanroc.Hopefully this training will include learning new moves and maybe an evolution
Hopefully, though Lycanroc needs to learn Stone Edge before it can use it. Maybe Bulu will pull a Tapu Koko and give Ash the Lycanium Z for beating Nanu instead of him getting a Darkinium Z.Maybe the Lycinium Z will come into play here? You do get it on U'la U'la.
I don't think so. The thing is, Tapu Koko switched the Z-Crystals because it knew that Ash wouldn't need the Fightinium Z, so it switched it with a Z-Crystal it knew was going to be useful to him. Meanwhile, Dark-type Z-Power IS something that Ash can use, since his Lycanroc knows Bite. I think Ash's Lycanroc will learn Stone Edge while training and then Ash will get the Lycanroc Z-Crystal somehow.Maybe Bulu will pull a Tapu Koko and give Ash the Lycanium Z for beating Nanu instead of him getting a Darkinium Z.
I never thought I'd say this, but oh boy, am I glad the Classmates aren't in this episode. Looks like they are going to be absent from this episode up to Nanu's grand Trial episode. The same goes to Kukui.Satoshi heads for the Ruins of Abundance in order to receive training from the guardian deity of Ula'ula Island, Kapu-Bulul. After crossing a desert and climbing a cliff, he finally arrives a Kapu-Bulul's location, but...
After losing the battle against Kuchinashi, Satoshi has resolved to win their rematch, and decides to head for the Ruins of Abundance in order to receive training from the guardian deity of Ula'ula Island, Kapu-Bulul. However, the journey to the Ruins of Abundance is filled with one obstacle after another?! Guided by Acerola, he crosses a desert and climbs a cliff before finally, finally arriving... only to find Kapu-Bulul giving him the cold shoulder. Will Satoshi be able to train and grow stronger?!

Yeah, I wonder. At least we won't have to worry about that school plot segment here. Ash is alone so no classmates or school plots are involved in this episode. And this is how this episode should be, with a proper journey plot and training montage.Will be interesting to see what Pokemon they encounter in the desert along their way to the Ruins of Abundance
That makes sense. I thought that particular scene was from the same match where Ash beats Nanu (and Lycanroc overcame its trivial anger somehow), but perhaps I'm wrong.Yeah, the reason why Ash loses the fight here is because of his Lycanroc unable to control its berserk mode. It's only activating when its fur gets dirty.
