    I don't mind Ash catching Meltan even if it does seem kind of random since we're still in Gen 7. What bugs me is the fact that people are all like "Ash finally has a Steel-type!!!" as if that's some kind of game changer.

      Steel types have been around since Johto. The fact he finally has one does mean something since no protagonist has had one(Excluding Clemont’s Magnemites or Brock’s Steelix seeing as neither had them when traveling with Ash). Plus it’s a Typing Ash has yet to acquire, leaving Ghost(Haunter doesn’t count), Psychic(Noctowl should be but it’s not) and Fairy as Types he’s yet to acquire. Also... Solgaleo, while a Steel Type, was never meant to remain with Ash. Ramifications if it did would be substantial.

      I really hope that because Meltan is classified as another Mythical Pokemon that it doesn't means it'll stick around as Meltan but once it evolves Ash will let it go (basically a repeat of Solgaleo). I don't really feel like it falls into the same circle as your typical legendary buut at the same time I wouldn't be surprised if they had him catch it to, like someone said earlier, show off its evolution.

        Er, why are you acting as if Brock didn't travel with Forretress from late OS through all of AG... ?

        My whole issue with the "Ash's first Steel-type" hoopla is that it won't impact the plot other than allowing Ash to use the Steelium Z, which he could've used regardless via Pikachu anyway if the writers wished to. This whole thing reminds me of when Ash caught Gible in DP and folks made a huge deal out of it being Ash's first Dragon-type, even though the typing neither helped nor hindered Ash whatsoever.

        > Iris
        > Excadrill
        > Steel/Ground

        It's fine people are excited about Ash getting a Steel type for the first time but Iris literally had one the whole series. Also Brock's Forrestress yes. But I've learned people like to make a bigger deal out of a lot of things then need be lol.

          Half the time I can't be arsed with remembering 800+ Pokemon and their Typings. Not to mention the fact that the Pokemon don't exactly follow their specialty in both Brock(specializes in Rock) and Iris(specializes in Dragon). Anyways, what's been mentioned is 100% right. Only reason he has one is to show off the Steel-Z. It'll likely be the reason he heads to Galar though based on speculation/rumors about Meltan having potentially originated there or something.

            I don't think that Meltan will have any connections to Galar.

            I'm not really bothered.This isn't the first time a legendary pokemon follow or hang out with the group or a member for a while. We had Meloetta in Best Wishes and Mallow didn't catch the Shaymin. It's just hanging out with her until it's ready to fly.

            Not to mention it's following the same logic as Squishy and Nebby except its not going to be a major plot point. But it is hanging around someone until it gets stronger.

            Of course if it stayed pernamently and she caught that'd be different.

              Still waiting for Ash to get an Eevee to add another cat/dog to his arsenal, and Nagisa chan* to evolve into a Vaporeon

              * - "chan" can mean something cute too, not neccesary a female counterpart to "kun"

                When will folks come to terms with the plausibility that this likely won't occur? Like it's been 20+ years since the franchise began, and if Ash hasn't gotten an Eevee during all that time (and not even in the past few months when Eevee's game mascot status made its popularity sky high), then it probably isn't meant to be.

                  Yeah. If Ash was going to catch an Eevee he would have caught it in this gen.

                    Yeah Ash with an eevee is a very, very, low chance. Honestly surprised that bc of one promo picture people thought it was going to get Marin and were stupid mad when lana got it instead. The opening clearly suggested it was gonna be lana.

                    But we've now had three series where Ash doesnt get the eevee but a companion does and if we get another eevee in the future itll probably be the same deal.

                        Well I was specifically talking about Ash's traveling companions but yes, okay.

                          I don't think that Ash will catch any more Pokemon in Alola. I think that either Poipole is returning or Ash is using his reserves to fill his 6th slot.

                            Wait, so only Glaceon, Sylveon and Nagisa then, unless Misty's plans to get an Eevee and later a Vaporeon

                            Well, yes, because we're talking about Ash getting an Eevee and even if the idea of him getting an Eevee was brought up during Gen 1-2 or Gen 4 Misty and Dawn both would fit an Eevee more. The only generation I could have possibly seen them giving him an Eevee is Unova but there was no previous gen Pokemon until way late and it just isn't a Pokemon they would bother showcasing in said generation because of that (and thus we simply had the guy with every Eeveelution instead lol).

                              I still cackle @ the fact that so many folks were adamant about Ash getting that awful-looking Eevee a few months ago. I recall the main excuse being that Eevee might get a Gen 8 evolution to justify Ash getting Eevee in SuMo, yet I never understood why he would need to catch that particular Eevee in Gen 7 when he could just get a different one in the next Gen if Eevee even gets a new evolution in Galar.

                              1. What did Nagisa's hair ever do to you not to mention Nagisa looks cute af with Lana's family haircut now (that and y'know it was to promote LGPE with the hair style thing).
                              2. I honestly don't get it either. Yeah, the promo image kiiinda said that Ash could potentially be the one to get it bc it was shown in front of him but if you watched the Japanese opening Lana was clearly the one looking at Nagisa while Ash was looking ahead. That there implied (to me) that Lana was going to get Nagisa, not Ash. So I mean....

                                I don't think that Ash is catching an Eevee ever, really.
