I don't think Ash will catch the Sandile. Personally I think it will be like Jigglypuff back in Kanto, Orange and Johto where it just follows them around or something. It just happens to be there where they are at or something.
I also agree that the Pidove could've flown away :/
And I think Ash may eventually catch the Sandile. By the look of appreciation the Sandile gave him in that episode,
the Sandile will most likely follow Ash until he catches it. Jigglypuff, if I remember, didn't exclusively follow Ash throughout the Johto region, or many of the recurring wild pokémon for that matter.
