In a surprise move by The Pokémon Company, the official Pokémon Twitter account has teased a new Pokémon!
The official Pokémon Twitter account posted an image recently, showing a black silhouette of a creature we haven’t seen before. The only caption provided was “New Pokémon Discovered?! Stay tuned, Trainers!”
The shape appears to be primate-like in shape, showing long arms to assist in movement, as well as a tail and hand-like feet. It doesn’t appear to be the cutest looking Pokémon. Anything more than this is speculation.
With the details of the upcoming DLC for Pokémon Sword and Shield having been released, it’s entirely possible that this new Pokémon will appear in the new areas. With any luck, they’ll also appear in Pokémon GO. The different areas already will feature new Pokémon to the series, it would make sense to tease more. It doesn’t look much like a snow-living creature, so it seems more likely to appear in the Isle of Armor DLC.
Regardless, time will tell. Stay tuned.
