The students of the Pokémon School are in for a treat when they meet Kahili, a famous Pokémon Golfer, and her Pokémon partner, a somewhat grumpy Toucannon named Touckey. Poor Kahili’s in a bit of a slump, but will teaching these raw recruits the finer points of the game give her the confidence to get back on top?

Not even Team Rocket is safe from their appetites! But what exactly are these strange Pokémon?​

I thought that this episode was okay. It was nice to see the characters' reactions to Meltan. They haven't named it yet, but that's obviously what it is, so I'll just call it by that name. A lot of fans still consider it to be the first eighth generation Pokemon, but I'm still positive that it is the special mystical Legendary Pokemon of the seventh generation. It fits that role a bit better than Cosmog considering it evolves into the main two Legendary Pokemon of the generation.

It was nice to see Ash and his friends trying to learn more about Meltan and how they discovered it was also pretty funny. It took them way too long to realize that it was alive and that it could be a Pokemon. They were able to figure out that it was a Steel type pretty quickly. I also forgot that Meltan could use Electric attacks. Marowak scaring them off with that dance was pretty expected given that it is a Fire type Pokemon.

The whole gag of the Meltan eating any metal around them already feels like it could get old pretty fast. While they thought that they lost all of the Meltan after they left the school, one unknowingly went into Ash's backpack with Rowlet. Telling Professor Oak about Meltan was a nice call back to how they revealed prior to the release of Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee. Overall, it was an okay episode. It mainly felt like setup for the next episode, so not a lot really stood out to me, but it was still enjoyable to watch.
