By that logic, more than 600 blast offs aren't complete blast offs.Actually, they didn't touch the ground in the end because of Bewear, so it wasn't a complete blast off.
The only way I can see this happening is if they do something similar to Rockruff where Ash helps with Popplio's training to make a strong enough balloon. Then, with Lana's dream fulfilled, she'll decide to give Popplio to Ash because she thinks he'll be able to unlock its full potential or something. I personally don't want this scenario to come true, but that's the most likely way I can see it happening.
I'm excusing Ash for forgetting something like that this one time since I think Rockruff is his first dog pokémon. Plus, in the past, he would normally use Flying types such as Pidgeotto, Swellow, Talonflame, etc. to find missing pokémon.
