By this logic, Guzma should have advanced to the finals so that he would have faced the Masked Royal, as he has a connection with Kukui.Except, Gladion has absolutely no connection to the Masked Royal, whereas Alder was pretty much someone Trip looked up to and genuinely wanted to face off against.
Regardless, if there is something that this series has shown me it’s that it doesn’t shy away from throwing curveballs, and both Ash winning and Gladion facing MR are curveballs.
