Careful? Where's the fun in that?
Of course not, Pidgeot's never coming back. And I don't think more than two people want it to, Pidgeot didn't have any personality unlike all his other OS Pokemon. That's why nobody cared it left.
The only OS Pokemon other than Pikachu that had any real personality was Charizard... it literally took the Orange Islands and Johto region to give Bulbasaur and Squirtle actual character. Not that I expect Ash's OG bird to ever make a comeback, but it not having a personality is hardly a fault against it.

Greninja however will.
1. It's a starter
2. Popular as heck
Just cause it probably isn't happening this saga doesn't mean it won't.
Your fair point is fair, but it's still released the exact same way Pidgeot was... to protect something and no trainer around in sight. There is a way to make it believable if it ever comes back, although how believable really comes down to exactly how the game treats Zygarde.

I just want Ash to take four Pokemon home.
I don't want to see him add a pitiful amount of three to his lab roster for the second time in a row.

I've been thinking in regards to that Araquanid that showed up in episode 71 at first I thought that was a Totem Araquanid(which has a height of 10'02"/3.1m) because it looked so big, however now I'm starting to wonder if it was just a normal sized Araquanid(which has a height of 5'11"/1.8m) and the only reason it looked so big was because we were seeing it from the perspective of a Dewpider(which has a height of 1'00"/0.3m).

Because when you stop and think about it, given how the anime usually treats Totem pokemon it would have been weird for that Araquanid to never meet one of the characters that is currently on the main cast, however if that Araquanid was just a normal sized Araquanid then it wouldn't be that odd for it to not show up again, after all they could just have the Dewpider that had a crush on Lana come back and evolve into a Araquanid or if they didn't want to go that route they could even have a character show up with a Araquanid.

I hope Ash's Meltan ends up Oak'd instead of released, two releases in two consecutive series is too much imo (altough I don't consider Goodra and probably Greninja to be released).
I agree with this we don’t need anymore releases or temporary Pokémon especially when they could have easily given him a non mythical Pokémon that he could catch such as Goliospod, jangmo-o line, mudbray line, Cutiefly line, etc. if he catches Meltan which I believe he will, then it needs to go back with him to kanto along with Lycanroc, Torracat, and Rowlet after the series is over. No more releases!

Sick of dealing with idiots.
Also, Kiawe used Charizard to battle Ash's Pikachu during their battle. So yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if it gets used at the Alola League.

For all the hate SM gets this is still the first series that has given ash mythical to legendary to rare special pokemon even if it is for temporary basis, that's somethng new.

I actually heard Meltan say 'bye bye' when it waved at the other Meltans.
I think that Meltan is actually gonna go back to Kanto with Ash.
I'm glad that Ash now officially has Meltan and this makes his first official Steel-type as well as Mythical rank pokemon.

Well Ash has officially caught his first Mythical Pokemon!! Yeah Meltan decided to go with Ash because of the relationship with Rowlet, so basically they’ll Oaked together at the end. Only thing is, Meltan’s base states are 300 total, even Rowlets is 320 and Poipole’s 420, sure it knows Thundershock and Flash Cannon, but I can’t imagine it will be a competent battler for Ash, especially because of how slow it is and the lack of power it has also. So I wonder how they will get around that, perhaps if Rowlet evolves to save Meltan from something, Meltan will do the same for Dartrix and we get 600 base total Melmetal. But I’d see Meltan being more a cheerleader Pokemon for the league than anything else, it’s kinds like Goomy at first comparison how it just watched until it evolved

Cool thing to note is that Ash’s Meltan is actually Shiny! It didn’t seem like it at first but in the end, Meltan’s ring gradually got darker and darker until it was completely distinctive from the others. That’s pretty cool.

The Shiny variation of Meltan is like a red bronze not a darker gold version.

It's a normal Meltan I think they just Colour errors when the episode progressed. So unfortunately it's not a Shiny Meltan, but eh Ash caught a Meltan, A Mythical Pokemon, in a normal Pokeball that got caught in its face if that doesn't become a thing I'll be sad that made laugh out loud. Good times.

Now I do question the scene when Ash is staring at a normal Pokeball in the opening. Is he staring at Meltan's pokeball, how is he going to train it and it does seem to be very protective and a competent battle albeit it was Team Rocket

I didn't see any sparkles happen so unless they changed how shinies sparkle...its hard to tell. But I will admit that Ash's Meltan is a darker color that looks very similar to the shiny version showed in the games.

Had to come back to the anime to see if he actually got Meltan. I doubt he will do much with it after Poipole and since it came so late in the region, but I am pleased to see he finally got a steel type. (Wouldn't be surprised if it does nothing, though.) I also like the bond between Meltan and Rowlet.

Meltan knows flash cannon and Harden! It look like it show cased thunder shock in prior episodes and after this episode it seems that the other meltan are sticking around also maybe ash does get Melmetal soon smh even though I’m against it

If you watch him battle Mewoth he has already did more then Poipole in one episode and showcased two moves and showed a super OP flash cannon that’s already more action then Poipole and his one episode showcasing fury attack
