Satoshi and Go visit Corni in order to Mega Evolve Lucario for the Pokémon World Championships.
Well, this at least answers one question. Ash is the one to make initiative in seeking out Mega Evolution.

The issue now is that it comes up out of the blue.

There is no proper induction to it, nor foreshadowing.

I have to repeat myself.

Why does Gou need to get that idea?
It'd be a complete waste of a gimmick.

They technically foreshadowed it back when Riolu witnessed Korrina's Lucario battling and Mega Evolving.

Well, the early news about this episode on 13th September that Ash will go off his own to get the stone and catch the Pokémon

Its been stated multiple times that Ash isn't catching anything. He's just getting the mega stone for Lucario.
Chances are that if anything is getting caught, Goh will be the one

I can't help but note the irony that Flygon is among the Pokemon appearing in this episode, a Pokemon planned to get a Mega Evolution, only for the artist to get the block

There shouldn't be any captures in this episode.

Especially, if it is Gou the one who would get something.
That would deviate the focus from Satoshi, who is meant to get development.

Then there will be complains about Gou stealing the spotlight again, and similar.
Moreover if he manages to catch something with the help of Lucario.
Yes, people are already speculating on that possibility.

So Dragonite was in. That means it battle something.
Not likely. Lucario will be the one to do the battling. At least any notable battling. Dragonite is just aerial transport.

Bit of a shame that powerful dragon-types are just Ride Pokemon

Relax, it's just 30 seconds of Go looking at a pokemon and it joining him - it's not gonna take Ash 22 minutes to get a Mega Stone

I didn't need any kind of reassurance.

Since I am already set on skipping these episodes.

Goh taking .5 seconds to catch some random mon isn't taking time any sort of focus away from Ash.

It might be inconsequential, but there's no need to give Goh another pointless capture (that amounts to nothing in the end so it doesn't matters that much narratively-wise) to progress his goal when it's an Ash episode. Any capture furthers Goh's goal, and they should stay exclusive to his own eps and to fillers.

It's literally the JN60-Bellsprout situation yet again.

I'm curious to see if Ash might get a Gengarite to mega evolve his Gengar in this episode or a later one

Based on merchandise, they seem to be leaning more towards Gengar’s skill being G-Max so I don’t think they’ll give Ash its Mega Stone. Would’ve made for a pretty cool plot back when Mega Evolution was the main mechanic if Ash had collected the stones of Pokémon he has who can Mega Evolve though.
