A mysterious new Pokémon has popped up on the official website. All that's been revealed is that it's a Fighting type with Steadfast as it's ability. Some are speculating that it could be
Spoiler:
a Galarian Form or evolution of Farfetch'd, as there is a resemblance when the image on the page is rotated 90 degrees to the right (which makes it look like it's holding a sword and shield, with the former looking quite a bit like Farfetch'd's leek).


A very interesting development for sure. Hopefully they fully reveal this sooner rather than later, since everyone will want to know what it is after it's been teased like this.

It s much, much heavier than Farfetch'd so I doubt it. Also the image looks more reptilian or maybe mammalian to me. I don't think it's a bird of any sort.
I've been wrong before though.

Bug type, maybe, since it’s acting like a bug on the website?? I really like what I see so far!!

Using this thread for linkage to the Daily article on this news (displays above your OP).

Said article adds something to the Farfetch'd thing, as if you rotate the image 90 degrees... well, it does look like a bird. See the article.

It might be due to it holding a shield adding to its weight.

We do know that there is a Galarian or evolution (or both) of Farfetch'd from that one accurate leak so far...

This seems very promising! I've been anticipating a Farfetch'd reveal and I can see this being a new evolution perhaps, much like Obstagoon was. I just hope it's cute. I like the idea of the little bird trying to look all noble with his deadly leek as a weapon!

But what about the typing? I'm not sure about the decision to have Farfetch'd to lose his flying type.

My light and my guide.
Your hand on my shoulder
And you by my side.
You make everything beautiful,
You make me complete!
Everything in my world,
I lay at your feet..."

Hm, so looking at it, the Japanese name for it seems to be ナ イ ト, which translates to "Naito". I'm not really sure what this means, but it could potentially translate to "Night" or "Knight". The latter definitely makes more sense because it ties in more with Galar lore, and what with Corviknight and all. However, I don't think this has anything to do with Corviknight.

As for the Farfetch'd thing, I highly doubt it is. If it were, then it would have been labelled under its Japanese name, カモネギ. It's most likely got to be a new Pokemon, and with the knight theme, it would definitely make sense if it's rotated. Some of the parts can end up looking like a sword and shield, which again ties in with the theme of the games. I have a feeling this could actually be some kind of medieval warrior Pokemon, to be honest.

Maybe the white/silver pixels are some kind of armor. Would be cool to have Galarian Farfetch'd in armor (or its evolution). I'm looking forward the revelation of this Pokémon.

I just had a thought. On the (English) website, before you can click on the image it moves to another part of the screen, twice, and only then can you click on it.

Now, what other Pokemon have we had to literally chase about?



Granted, it's a bit farfetched a stretch, and also not the case with the Japanese site (they don't even put the image on the home page, mind...), but it came to mind.

-----------
Fighting type change would be weird, and a bit unoriginal. We have heaps of pure Fighting types, but only one Fighting/Flying iirc. Alas, not the first time there's an seemingly odd typing decision made for a Pokemon...

flipping it this way makes the picture a lot more clear! definitely looks like a bird/farfetch'd holding a sword (leek) and shield. above theory is also good!

Wait a minute, it's Friday the 13th... Did Pokemon do this on purpose?

It's definitely a regional Farfetch'd evolution, though.

Cubone was actually the initial thought of many before the Affleck leak was pointed out. Granted, if you look at it from that angle it does resemble a Cubone, but it doesn't really seem likely because we already have Alolan Marowak.

Yeah, it's a nice change of pace. They have tried more inventive reveals lately - see Meltan, for instance. Not that I am without my complaints on how they did Meltan - it ended up with a lot of confusion. =/ But this seems to be going better so far.

Obviously hard to tell but it looks like the top of the leek has been cut off and has been fashioned into the shield which is a decent idea design wise.

I'm hoping this is an actual evolution for Farfetched. Something I was thinking about the other day was that old leak that mentioned armour evolutions and hoped to God that this was not linked to that as some sort of form change rather than a proper evolution.

Trainers, thanks to your reports, we’ve uncovered a technical issue with the announcement of our latest Pokémon discovery.

We’ve got our hardest working Pokémon Trainers on the case and hope to have the issue resolved shortly.
Seems like there will be a reveal tomorrow at around 10PM JST, according to the Japanese Twitter account.

Excited to see!

Wonder why the Japanese twitter gave the time while the English one tried to play it off as a glitch...belatedly so, and not give a time? Bit weird there.

Oh well. Yay for a confirmed time for reveal.
