Pokémon has just teased a potential new character on its Sword and Shield website. The page currently promotes a pre-order of its upcoming Nintendo Switch game, while the bottom right depicts a blurred image of a mysterious Pokémon.

Upon following the glitch and clicking on it, a Pokédex listing appears with stats that reveal it’s a fighting type, weighing 257.9 lbs and possessing a steadfast ability. The description reads, “Only [redacted] that have survived many battles can attain this [redacted]. When this Pokémon’s [redacted] [redacted]ers, it will retire from combat.” Meanwhile, the Japanese language site shows the Pokemon’s name ending in “naito” which could translate to either “night” or “knight.”

Rumors have been speculating on Twitter that the glitch is an evolved Farfetch’d holding a leek, rotated at 90 degrees, while some are speculating its a Galar Cubone.

Check out the latest trailer for Pokémon: Sword and Shield and get the game releasing on Nintendo Switch Nov. 15.
