The mysterious new Pokémon to be introduced in Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! appears to have been leaked early. During a recent run of Niantic’s Pokémon Go network traffic, images of the normal and shiny variants of a mysterious creature were outed, as spotted by Twitter user Chrales.

The creature in question appears to have a silver body of the mimicry Pokémon Ditto with a screw for a head with a pupil in its center. It has no name, classification, or typing. Niantic has placed its data in a placeholder slot where Hoenn Pokémon Kecleon should be, and it is numbered #352 rather than a predicted #808 in the National Dex.

There’s no telling if the images are legitimately what fans can expect of the promised new Pokémon in the upcoming Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu! and Eevee! games. As such, this is marked as a rumor until Nintendo and The Pokémon Company make an official announcement.
