Brand new Pokemon seemingly leaked in Pokemon GO files
Pokemon GO dataminers have uncovered what appears to be a brand new Pokemon. The creature has never been seen before, and there’s been no word on it officially thus far from The Pokemon Company.
Twitter account poke_miners came through with the news today. According to the fan page, the Pokemon was added with a file named “pmMystery”. It’s referred to as pm1080, which is assumed to be Pokemon number 1080. Right now it only has associated 3D assets, so there’s nothing in 2D form yet.
We know that unannounced information can be sensitive to some fans, so we’ve included the picture and tweet after the break.
A brand new Pokémon?

Interestingly, we may have actually gotten a first (but very obscured) look at this Pokemon last month. In the 14-minute gameplay trailer, new creatures were spotted. We didn’t have the best look at it at the time, but the design matches up with today’s discovery.
Oh wow. It’s hard to make out, but this was visible in a recent Pokémon Scarlet & Violet trailer. It was likely left in the trailer by accident. pic.twitter.com/DJeKoYSsto

Whatever this new Pokemon is, we should be seeing it in Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet. It should also be added to Pokemon GO at some point in the future, but we can only speculate as to when that’ll be.
In the meantime, let us know what you think about the unknown creature in the comments below.
