Funny how you mention Ash’s Grotle since its one of the first and the most significant cases of this adjustment. It literally had to be coached by Torterra to adjust.But we've also seen cases where Pokémon still managed to maintain their agility (or regain it), despite evolving into heavier ones (such as with Ash's Grotle or Tierno's Blastoise).
Blastoise isn’t a valid case since we don’t see it thrown in a battle just some time after evolution with zero training.
Evolution makes a Pokemon stronger, but with such prominent changes with no training to get accustomed to them makes things wonky.
Silvally’s battle style is specially aggressive and agile, and it has had much more training than Meltan ever had. It makes sense to me Melmetal wins.I guess we'll have to wait for the episode to come out to know whether Melmetal keeps its mobility for sure or not, but, based on the previews, there's nothing concrete that says it doesn't.
Melmetal vs Zoroark would’ve been a much better initial match up imo. Wouldn’t lead to Melmetal being humiliated and would make some sense.
I’m honestly surprised Melmetal’s the first to faint under Fujisaku’s writing. I was expecting it to overwhelm something like Zoroark.
