Hey I wanted ask if I can return to catch Balcephalon someway later as I want to shiny hunt it. I'm currently saved in the beginning of the Blacephalon ultra beast mission. Can I just run from the Blacephalon fight and able to return for them later?

Yes, you can. You're actually able to catch two of them, so if you'd like, you can catch a normal one (perhaps as trading leverage), and then KO or run away from the second one to hunt later (it'll reappear in the same area). I've tested this and, while I haven't gotten around to actually hunting it yet, I've seen other people get a shiny Blacephalon after the postgame like this. I don't know for sure whether both will reappear if you KO/run away from both of them, but I honestly don't see why they wouldn't.
