There’s a brand new Pokémon coming to “Pokémon Sun and Moon.” The Pokémon Company recently announced the addition of a new Mythical Pokémon named Marshadow. This may come off as odd to players who have already spotted the monster months before, but the move is clearly a formal introduction to the creature that will be officially touching down in the games soon.

Seen on the official site of the company’s 3DS page right now is an update in which players will be greeted with a promotional tab that features Marshadow. Clicking this will redirect site visitors to another page dedicated solely to the shadow creature.

Welcome, Marshadow!

According to the press release, the new Pokémon cannot be encountered through regular gameplay.

Players will have to keep an eye out for announcements from the licensing and marketing department to know how to obtain this valuable pocket monster. There is little information about the Marshadow for now, and the promotional clip doesn’t reveal much either.

The next mythical creature has been known to “Pokémon Sun and Moon” players since November when the Z-moves were revealed. The pocket monster’s vitals were also pulled out by data miners months back, revealing that it’s actually one of seven Generation 7 legendary Pokémon. According to Bulbapedia, Marshadow is a fighting/ghost type.

Previously in December, Magearna was made available through a QR code. While yet to be confirmed, the new Pokémon may be offered similarly.

An introduction to ‘Pokémon Stars?’

Of course, Marshadow’s surprising introduction has stirred rumors among trainers.

There are now speculations that The Pokémon Company could be prepping fans for the launch of a third game, codenamed “Pokémon Stars.”

Upon its release for the Nintendo 3DS last year, fans started plaguing the internet with speculations that a third game was in the pipeline for the Nintendo Switch. Like “Platinum” and “Yellow,” “Pokémon Stars” is reported to become and expanded version of “Pokémon Sun and Moon.”

Meanwhile, Marshadow’s Z-Move had already been leaked through a video clip months ago. The clip shows the Mythical monster shrouded in Z-Power, then releasing its Soul-Stealing 7-Star Strike move, defeating Wingull, a Water/Flying-type monster.

In related news, “Sun and Moon” players still have the chance to join the Battle Competition. Participants will receive Blazikenite and Sceptilite Mega Stones as gifts. Interested players can start registering as early as April 19 until it closes on April 27. Blazikenite allows Blaziken to Mega Evolve in battles, while Sceptilite enables Sceptile’s Mega Evolved form. #Pokemon Sun and Moon #The Pokemon Company
