Visitors to the official Pokemon Sword and Shield website are being treated to a mysterious glitched out image that appears randomly on their screens. Selecting this glitched out image will then take you to a page for this mysterious Pokemon where only a few details are revealed. 

This particular Pokemon will be a fighting type that knows an ability called Steadfast. It will also weigh 257.9 lbs. Unfortunately, that is all of the currently known information about the newly teased creature. 

The description of the new Sword and Shield Pokemon was also very vague and has left players with plenty of questions. You can find the description below with the blurred out portions being represented by #. 

“Only # that have survived many battles can attain this #. When this Pokémon’s # #ers, it will retire from combat.”
