In Ultra Moon, we can catch the starters from gen 1-6 in the wild, using island scan and put them in any balls we want. But I'm pretty sure that I saw a Litten, which can't be caught, in a premier ball in GTS. Is it possible?

I believe that in Japan there were "special events" that allowed them to catch a Gen 7 Starter in the wild. Since they'd be able to breed those starters, you could technically have a Gen 7 starter in almost every ball legitimately. I think the three Poké Balls that you should worry a Gen 7 starter is in are a Cherish Ball, Dream Ball, and Master Ball if they aren't Japanese, because Master balls and Cherish balls don't pass down via Breeding (and I don't think the starters have been released in Cherish balls), and Dream ball is pretty impossible. :P
The only event I can find for the Gen 7 starters is the one with their HAs, which still had them all in standard Pokeballs. I can't find anything on a Japanese event that allowed you to catch them yourself.
