Now that Kojiro's Hidoide has learned a Dark type move, the Rocket Gang are ready and willing to fire off some Z-Moves! However, they don't have the Z-Ring that's required to do this... what will you do about that, Rocket Gang?!

Summary:
Kojiro's Hidoide has learned the Dark type move "Knock Off". Since they already have a Dark-Z, all they need now is a Z-Ring and they'll be able to fire off Z-Moves... After Sakaki tells them that they might get a Z-Ring if they go to the Island King of Ula'ula Island, they decide to head there immediately. However, the Island King had left on a journey to improve his skills, and when he left, he said he didn't know when he'd be back. Will the Rocket Gang be able to get a Z-Ring?!
