Meltan is officially NOT generation 7
So we still don't have conclusive evidence to say they are Gen 8 but we know have official confirmation that they are not part of Gen 7.[[User:Josephvb10|Josephvb10]] ([[User talk:Josephvb10|talk]]) 22:55, 5 February 2020 (UTC)
: It lists by region, not gen so there's one thing. However it's still correct to say that there were introduced in Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee which were released during Gen 7. However LGPE do break the all the conventional rules that are used to determine what "Gen" a main series game is in, it doesn't fit neatly into either Gen 7 or Gen 8. A lot of the confusion is caused by GF's insistence that LGPE is a "main series game". I think it's most correct to say that Meltan/Melmetal were introduced between generations 7 & 8. We should wait to see what if the Home dex puts them with Gen 7 or 8.
:At the risk of creating another Phione situation, I think the intro should simply say "introduced in LGPE" and the trivia section should discuss what "gen" it's in. [[User:Jmvb|JMVB - very sporadic editor since 2008]] ([[User talk:Jmvb|talk]]) 10:22, 6 February 2020 (UTC)
