Since melmetal doesn't have any 4x weaknesses(meaning no immediate KOs) then if the opponent uses like a coverage move/a strong STAB move it couldn't use that move next turn, putting you at an advantage? Also melmetal doesn't benefit from the defense boost either.

So is it worth it or not?

you can't get one and no. Defense boost is always nice but disable is rarely useful
What do you want to do with this Melmetal? Do you want to battle other people, in-game trainers, or something else?
None of those. I just want to know if g-max melmetal is worth it(if it ever comes out, which it should).
im just dumb, you can feed melmetal MAX SOUP
Are you going to use a Melmetal in any battle? If yes, what kind of battle? If no, how can you use its Gmax move?
actually, Melmetal can't use max soup

It depends. Are you trying to stall out their Pokemon so they can't use coverage, or do you want to raise your already amazing defense stat. If it were me I prefer g max meltdown because if they don't 1 shot you they give you a free turn to set up or steamroll their Pokemon. If it raised special defense it would be better because of Melmetals special defense being relatively low.
