Ever since Let’s Go, Pokémon haven’t had their in-battle models in the sprite page, rather their Party sprites. Why is that so? I mean, it might be hard and probably is to add models for every single Pokémon that has come out, but he did it for the Gen 7 Pokémon. Why did he stop?

Probably because the Pokémon models (especially idle animations) haven’t updated very much since Gen 6, so adding them again every Gen isn’t worth it.
https://pokemondb.net/pokebase/meta/76955/some-pokemon-dont-have-shiny-sprites Pretty much same reason as here, PM just hasn't added them yet. It may be that it's harder to get models. I disagree with KRLW, however. Although the models themselves haven't changed very much, the resolutions seem to have changed quite a lot, just look at the differences between the XY models and the ORAS models. Also, if that were the case, I don't think that PM would have already added both the XY and ORAS models if they weren't worth adding for every gen because they're all similar.
@KR Well, even if they haven’t changed, there are still the new Pokémon and such.

@HellFire Taco Yeah true actually...
