A new Pokémon was revealed during this episode which hadn't been seen anywhere else at the time this episode originally aired in Japan on April 14th, 2023.

Press Release - April 17th, 2023

The Pokémon Company group revealed today, April 17th, 2023, that Trainers will be able to uncover the mystery behind a newly discovered Pokémon found in The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero, the upcoming downloadable content for the Pokémon Scarlet or Pokémon Violet video game. A newly discovered Pokémon will also appear in the latest animated series, “Pokémon Horizons: The Series,” which recently premiered in Japan before its release around the world starting later this year.

MYSTERIOUS NEWLY DISCOVERED POKÉMON TO DEBUT SOON

​​​​​​​Get ready to meet more Pokémon beyond the borders of the Paldea region

​​​​​​​

Who’s That Pokémon?! This unknown Pokémon is reminiscent of the Legendary Pokémon Terapagos, but its name and true nature are shrouded in mystery. It is small in stature and not particularly strong, but when push comes to shove, it can crystallize the energy in its body to form a protective shield. Apparently, it can also assume a dormant state when it feels that its life is in danger by pulling its head, limbs, and tail into its shell and making itself look like a jewel.​

In The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero, players will leave the Paldea region and be able to delve deeper into the world of Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet.

New Animated Series Offers Tease of Mysterious Pokémon
The recent premiere of “Pokémon Horizons: The Series” in Japan offered a sneak peek at the newly discovered Pokémon. In the animated series, Liko, one of the protagonists, carries a mysterious pendant that is seen transforming into this Pokémon. The Pokémon then reverts immediately after it protects Liko from danger.

Debuting outside Japan starting in 2023, “Pokémon Horizons: The Series” is a new Pokémon animated series that will follow a never-before-seen storyline and characters, including dual protagonists Liko and Roy, as they uncover various mysteries of the Pokémon world, such as the fascinating secrets surrounding this newly discovered Pokémon.
