In before Kiawe finds a Victini or Volcanion.So it looks like we're in for an arc with three Mythical Pokémon: Shaymin, Magearna, and Meltan. Highly rare, highly unexpected, and interesting to see the direction of how Meltan will evolve and be released, when Shaymin would fly away in Sky Forme, and how Magearna will be restored.
I think my biggest problem with the SM anime isn't even the anime itself, it just feels like the writers didn't know how to approach the SM story so they are going in whichever direction the wind is taking them. The search for Mohn feels like a natural given, but the injection of the mythical Pokemon over the course of the last several episodes just seems super random. Meltan and Magearna are kind of obvious because they are Gen 7 Pokemon, but then there is Shaymin popping in like it's saying "hey, remember me?".
But this overall was a decent episode, and I don't say that often.
