Set to air November 24th.

Synopsis from Dephender at Serebii:

Roy and Hogator decide to investigate a mysterious purple liquid.

Also from Dephender regarding this episode's title what Pokemon could be featured:

(note that the title consists mostly of onomatopoeia that can have a couple different meanings, so take it with some grains of salt since neither summary nor title makes it entirely clear exactly what's being referred to. The title is in essence "A Mysterious Pokemon That Goes Zuruu and Gachan", and if you have any guesses for what that could mean in an assumed context, shoot. Japanese fans don't know either.)

Looks like we're getting Polteageist
 
Considering the first summary specifically notes Roy and Fuecoco, I hope this episode will focus on him a bit more. He really needs more attention. That said, I'd also like to see more of Wattrel over the starters doing everything.

Hogator thought it was time to train... but then it suddenly slipped due to a mysterious purple liquid being splattered around on the battlefield. Roy and Hogator decide to investigate where it came from. In the meantime, Liko hears a mysterious clanging sound. Just what is going on on the Brave Asagi?!

It’s nice seeing Galar actually getting some screentime this time around though hopefully we get to see some other locations within it since this seems pretty nonspecific on where in Galar it is.
About time Galar (are they still in Galar in this episode I wonder?) and its Pokemon actually got some decent focus, because lord knows Journeys failed spectacularly in that regard. Once again, Horizons is doing Gen 8 more justice the series that was originally concurrent with it!

Side note: If they are still in Galar in this ep, they'll have been in Galar for 11 episodes straight! To put it in perspective, that's about as long as the whole of the Masters Eight tournament, the longest unbroken stint in Galar Journeys gave us!

Impressive! This really does feel like the shows apology for the previous series in so many ways.

A suspicious purple liquid is found on the Brave Asagi's wing deck, while a mysterious sound is heard inside the ship. When Liko and Roy investigate, they learn that this is actually a certain Pokémon that wandered onto the ship and got lost?!
