Sending Melmetal to Giovanni would be a disaster; I am not sure how rotting at Oak's is the least justified option. Anyway, it is not hard to imagine Melmetal protecting a bunch of Meltan, be it in Alola or Kanto. For that matter, Silvally (of a suitable type) and Incineroar should be able to take down a newly evolved Melmetal.

SM108 has shown Mallow befriend a Shaymin but the question is, has she befriended it or will she actually capture it

I know Serebii isn't allowed on Bulbapedia but it is quoted as saying ''Mallow found Shaymin on Poni Island after Tapu Fini's mist made her see her departed mother. After the mist cleared, Mallow found Shaymin. She decided to look after Shaymin until it changes form and can fly away. ''

I think they’re going for a double Nebby situation with parts of the group taking care of different mythicals:

Shaymin: Mallow, Lillie, Lana
Meltan: Ash, Kiawe, Sophocles.

I see. Let's wait for the subtitles and see what they'll have to say.

Torracat will probably end up as the starter Pokemon Ash owns with the least amount of battle opponents...

We don't even have a summary for SM112, so we cannot say for certain who is catching Meltan.

I'm sure I missed something, but when was it confirmed that a cast member would catch Meltan?

The Sun & Moon episode 112 title says "Meltan Gettoda ze!" or "Get, Meltan!"
Ew. I wouldn't mind seeing Meltan in the cast as Nebby 2.0, but the thought of someone catching it bugs me. I hope it's not Ash even if he does kinda need a new Pokemon soon. :unsure:

Next week could tell a lot. If Ash gets a Steelium Z from the grand trial, it's much more likely that Meltan will go to him.

I wonder why would there be a Shaymin arc. Sinnoh remakes aren't coming before Gen 8.

Didn't expect Mallow to kidnap a Shaymin and keep it from flying away. Really undercut the rest of the episode.

But who knows when Gen 8 is coming out? Rumors based on Junichi Masuda's tweets say that the revelation for the new games could be coming out in a few days.
