Even more Meltan appeared in ''[[SM109|A Grand Debut!]]'', where they were briefly seen on the boat {{Ash}}, {{ashcl}}, and {{an|Professor Kukui}} were taking from Poni Island to [[Melemele Island]].
All of the Meltan reappeared in [[SM111]], where they caused havoc on Melemele Island. While investigating the sewers, the Meltan were divided into two groups. One group ended up at the [[Ultra Guardians]] base and ate some machinery before being stopped by [[Lusamine's Clefable]]. Afterwards, they ended up at the [[Pokémon School]], where they were discovered by Ash, his classmates, and Professor Kukui. Unable to recognize what the Meltan were, the group determined they were a new species and decided to study what they work on and how they worked. During the experiments, [[Kiawe's Marowak]] accidentally scared the Meltan off with the flames on its bone, forcing Ash and the others to search for them. Meanwhile, the other group of Meltan ended up at [[Bewear's Denden]], where they ate most of [[James]]'s bottle cap collection, infuriating him. {{TRT}} chased the runaway Hex Nut Pokémon into some nearby woods and attempted to capture them. The Meltan retaliated with a combined {{m|Flash Cannon}}, only for {{an|Bewear}} to block the attack and scare the Meltan away.
While Ash and the others searched, {{AP|a single Meltan|Meltan}} stayed behind, where it met [[Ash's Rowlet]]. After Rowlet helped rescue its hex nut from a {{pkmn2|wild}} {{p|Murkrow}}, the Meltan took a liking to Rowlet. Afterwards, the Meltan group at the Pokémon School called the other group to their position, reuniting them all except for the Meltan bonded with Rowlet. It instead chose to follow Rowlet back home by hitching a ride in Ash's backpack.
