Everything we know about the new Sword and Shield Mythical Pokémon appearing in Coco

A new Mythical Pokémon is quite the event.

Pokémon the Movie: Coco

A new mythical Pokémon is on the way. It is an exciting time for Trainers everywhere, as a new Mythical Pokémon will be joining the Pokémon universe with the release of the upcoming Pokémon The Movie: Coco. The new Pokémon will be revealed on Feb. 27, but we also go a glimpse of the silhouette of the latest additions to the PokéDex thanks to a tweet from Poke Beach.

We can draw some assumptions about what the new Pokémon will look like thanks to this and the trailer for Pokémon The Movie: Coco. There seem to be some similarities between the boy seen in the trailer, and the silhouette shown above. The boy has something wrapped around his forearms, in an attempt to mimic the look of the new Pokémon. The fact that the new movie also seems to take place, at least partially, in a jungle, strongly implies that the new Pokémon will be a Grass-type. 

So far, our money is on the Mythical Pokémon finding the child and helping to raise him in the jungle, hence the older boy wishing to look like someone that he considers a parent.

Something about the shape and the pose also implies a very intimidating figure, so could we see a Fighting-type Mythical Pokémon emerge after all this teasing? The only thing we know for sure is that the new Pokémon will appear in Pokémon Sword and Shield as well. So, whatever it ends up being, you will be able to catch it and train it, as long as you own the game. At the moment, it is not known when the new Pokémon will be added to the games. 

Pokemon The Movie: Coco is due to release on July 10.
