This supposed new Pokemon looks a bit nuts



We may have gotten an accidental glimpse of the new Pokémon that will debut in Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee later this year. I won’t lie: I feel like the way-too-young kid who couldn’t resist sneaking downstairs late at night to find his parents watching A Nightmare on Elm Street. I’ve seen too much!

The apparent leak comes from @Chrales, who spotted a pair of conspicuous icons in Pokémon Go. He says “it’s labeled as Kecleon in Pokémon Go but Unity files are tagged with Pokémon 891.”

You might’ve clicked this article out of curiosity but now you’re having second thoughts. If so, well, this is just me buying you time. Don’t scroll any further if you don’t want to see the weird new Pokémon.

And here it is:

So yeah. If this is a real design, I can’t wait to read the creature’s in-game description. If for whatever reason it’s not a real Pokémon, at least the fan art community will have plenty of fun.
