The new Pokémon that will be unveiled in LGPE may have been leaked by Niantic traffic. It's speculative at this point, but:

Spoiler: show

Actual image leaked.

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DnmZ4xAU0AIN1vS.jpg
(Massive) fan imitation of Ken Sugimori art.

It, uh .................... If this is really a new Pokémon, then man, color me underwhelmed. This looks a rejected baby for the Klink / Klang / Klinklang line. It looks like someone took an ordinary hexagonal nut, smushed it on top of a gray Ditto, and then put a tiny black ball in the center hole.

If this really is the new Pokémon for LGPE ...
  • how did Game Freak miss the opportunity to place the newest Eeveelution in the game?
  • this can't possibly be a legendary ... can it? It looks like a baby!
  • surely this has to evolve into something else ... So, does that mean it can evolve in LGPE? And that we'll see its evolution in LGPE as well, bringing the count to two (or more) new Pokémon instead of just one?
  • Steel type is an obvious candidate given the nut. A lot of people are speculating Psychic for a secondary typing given the black ball that appears to be floating freely in the middle of the nut, but I dunno ... I could see this being just mono-Steel or some other type combination instead. I can ofc also see it being Steel/Psychic, sure.
  • Given the nature of the leak, will this likely mean that Game Freak doesn't gift Niantic any of the other Gen 8 mons until only after Gen 8 has released on the Switch?

Actually that...kind of looks like some sort of black hole or something. It might not be Steel at all.

It's kind of cute honestly

I bet it's based on some obscure yokai. GF seems obsessed with beating YO-KAI Watch even though that franchise has collapsed catastrophically in the last year or two.

On one hand, I kinda doubt that theory myself. On the other one, Touhou showed us westerners that similar concepts crop up all the dang time even to this day within the past couple years, so it could be a more recent urban legend. In any case, it feels kinda lazily designed to me with as few details about it we currently have, but is oddly endearing nonetheless. Steel seems like the obvious Type here, but we've all know that GF likes to avoid the obvious Type from time to time (cough, solgaleo and stunfisk, cough).

Far from the worst thing they ever produced.

We got movement.

It's not the worst in history, but...it's still pretty bad.

Hmm, now I wonder if it's supposed to be a new UB or something- both the nut and the wire tail don't strike me as typical pokemon design elements, even among the synthetic-esque ones, especially when used in conjunction with that much-less-solid looking body.
