The 3D model for a new coin Pokemon has appeared in the internal data for Pokemon GO. Its model has a Pokemon ID of 1080, but this isn’t its Pokedex number (although we are expecting Scarlet & Violet to push the Pokedex to over 1,000 Pokemon). The model was discovered by @poke_miners.
A brand new Pokémon?
A new Pokémon has been added with a file named "pmMystery" inside the file is it referred to as pm1080 so Pokémon Number 1080. Only 3D assets were added, no 2D yet to see.

The new Pokemon first appeared in a recent trailer for Scarlet & Violet. Many fans noticed a Pokemon with antennae in the background of one shot. It was only partially revealed (circled in red below).
Presumably this new Pokemon will be part of a Scarlet & Violet promotion in Pokemon GO. The games will release on November 18th.
