The Pokémon Company and Game Freak have teased a new Pokémon that will appear for the first time in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield.

That can be seen on a glitched Pokédex page that has been posted on the Nintendo Switch exclusive’s official website revealing a Fighting-type Pokémon with the Steadfast ability.

The glitches hide the Pokémon’s name, category, height, and parts of its description, which reads: “Only [Glitched] that have survived many battles can attain this [Glitched]. When this Pokémon’s [Glitched] [Glitched]ers, it will retire from combat.”

In Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, you will choose between three starter Pokémon – Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble – before having the chance to explore the Galar region – with its idyllic countryside, contemporary cities, thick forests, and craggy, snow-covered mountains. Challenging the Gyms in the region, you will once again look to become Champion.

Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide on November 15th.
