PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

Before you enter the Alola league for the first time in USUM (possibly also SM), there’s a short cutscene where you look at your first partner and are reminded of how far you’ve come. What happens if your starter is boxed or released? Also, what happens if it’s NFE?

It just skips the cutscene altogether if you no longer have your starter.

If the starter is not fully evolved, the scene still occurs, with the Pokémon shown being your not fully-evolved starter.
