New Pokemon Officially Announced, But It’s a Glitched Image!

A few moments ago, the official Pokemon Twitter announced the discovery of a new Pokemon. Their Tweet links to the official Pokemon Sword & Shield website, but there is no new Pokemon listed next to the ones that were previously revealed.

Instead, the website shows a glitched image in the right corner. If you hover over the image, it will move a few times. Once you’re able to click it, it plays Rotom’s cry. The image is wrapped in an HTML tag named “glitch-item.” So this was obviously done on purpose.

Update: The glitched Pokemon also has its own page set up! It’s listed as a Fighting-type Pokemon with the Steadfast Ability and its Pokedex description says “Only … that have survived many battles can attain this… When this Pokemon’sers, it will retire from combat.” The Japanese Pokemon website also gave a partial name for this new Pokemon: (ナ イ ト nite).

What could this Pokemon be? Obviously The Pokemon Company wants to spark speculation among fans. Could it be a new Glitch Pokemon? A new glitched form of Rotom? An evolution of Farfetch’d? A Galarian Cubone? Who knows?!

    Should be noted that the Pokemon has a page here.

    Interesting that it's a Fighting type. Not sure what to make of it yet, really! ~Mysterious~

    EDIT: Holy heck, I just realized how heavy it is. 257.9 lbs?! The proportions make it seem like a small 'mon, but that weight is really high.

    As for my guess on filling in the blanks on the Pokemon's page:
    'Only [Pokemon that this is a form/evo of] that have survived many battles can attain this [form/evo]. When this Pokémon's [helmet/skull, or maybe the green "blade"?] [shatt]ers, it will retire from combat.'

    EDIT 2: Just realized what the Pokemon looks like when viewed from the side. Gonna go ahead and presume it's the rumored Sirfetch'd, and the weight is primarily from the giant leek sword (I was wondering why that part of the image was there...) & the shield. That would then make my above guess revised to:
    'Only [Farfetch'd] that have survived many battles can attain this [evolution (presumably)]. When this Pokémon's [sword/shield] [shatt]ers, it will retire from combat.'

    Worst clickbait made by TPCi themselves. I tried recently and I got scammed then seeing this glitchy goofer there. (Sorry for the "goofer" thing BTW)

    It's a Galarian Cubone as a musketeer. He's holding his sabre above his head.

    While it does look like a Cubone to me too, it wouldn't be a musketeer, it could be a knight (as they are quite English) but the stereotypical musketeers wielding sabres were only in mainland Europe (especially France).

    I'm definitely seeing the Farfetched evolution on its side now... I'm thinking the Rotom cry is "whoops, a Rotom possessed our system and glitched everything!"

    If this is Sirfetched getting leaked (or 'leeked') then Nintendo made the ultimate pun

    I'm embarrassed at the people guessing something with cubone. THAT'S A LEEK, How could it be more obvious???
     
  10. Liking this comment for the Leek pun
     
  11. Definitely Sirfetch'd

    That’s fair. It would be cool to see Galarian Marowak in a full suit of armour.

    I mean, the image is glitchy as freak, to the point that we barely see what it could be, but sure, call it how you want.

    It's clearly a MissingNo. rotated 90 degrees counterclockwise.

    I'm definitely seeing Sirfetch'd, but you have to rotate it 90 degrees clockwise. It has a long leek sword, some kind of leafy shield, a black "mask" around its eyes, a buff, white body, and tiny feet. I guess they dropped the Flying type because it got too heavy.

    [​IMG] <- It will probably look less derpy than this.

    I would be very surprised if they did this, although it's a cool idea!
