Releasing Meltan from non-party may not give candy?, mobile walker release gave none, PC release gave but had no popup

I released two Meltan from the mobile walker (all of this is on desktop site), and got no candy for it. (9 candy total, 3 hatched, 2 released) I then released one from my party for testing purposes after it hatched (13 candy, 4 hatched, 3 released) and did get candy in the expected popup, and then released one from the PC via the mass release buttons and did not get a candy popup BUT now have 14 candy.

So it looks like PC isn't saying 'you got x candy', and releasing from mobile walker or presumably daycare (but I'm not even going to test that because there is literally no reason to put Meltan in the daycare) does not seem to give candy at all.

If I need to do more testing, that'll be in a couple of days because I only managed to get four eggs. Stupid me decided to get them as soon as I woke up yesterday :v

(Also, just putting this here because it's relevant - I feel like 30k is too much for something we'd need to hatch so many of, given it's similar to the Zygarde Cells. Especially since it's best to get a full party of them.
Though, unlike the cells, Meltan will have an egg value since it's obtainable, and that likely WILL be 30k, so I do see why it is the case.)

edit: I now have 16 candy, so either I was given the missing candy as part of fixing the issue, or mobile walker candy is reaaaally delayed for some reason. I'm going to logically assume it's the former though, so thanks for fixing it!

Weird... I came here to post that I mass-released some Pokémon including a Meltan and did not get a candy for it.

I didn't fix anything, having just read this now, so if you eventually got the candy, then it may just be a different issue such as the item cache not getting wiped when released from PC/MW, causing a delay in you seeing your credited candy.
