    I'm not even sure if I want to go to GameStop. Haven't bought anything from them since the release of Sword and Shield.

    That was very strange, I thought it was going to tease a new Pokémon. I’m also watching off a phone so they could have and I just can’t tell.

    Nope just described it.

    Its canid and looks like, but is not, Growlithe and Vulpix.

    It has fluffy white fur on its head and around its neck, so it isn't Hisuian Growlithe

    It has a red tail

    Yellow eyes
    _________________________________________
    Some are suggesting its an Hissuian Zorua


    Also like that this guy is apparently filming on an Arc Phone he found.

    I was expecting something upbeat when I woke up to a video teasing a Pokémon game. Ended up saying out loud "Why is this so creepy?" Will say that's the most expectation subverting piece of found footage horror I've watched this October. Not sure if I'm feeling it.

    A theory I really like is the possibility of the beatmon Warwolf line making a comeback as a regional variant for an existing Pokemon.

    This honestly could just be the ground after he gets attacked.

    But the bottom left looks like an outstretched arm and the bottom right looks like its a Zoroark facing the camera.

    From the official Japanese website:

    “Thank you everyone for all the research reports! After seeing your report from Professor Oak, the restoration was finally completed! This is amazing! Please watch this video anyway! !!

    Well, I was surprised to hear the report! This was a valuable image of Zorua and Zoroark, which are said to have lived in the jade region long ago!

    Even more surprising, these two seem to be normal ghost types. But it's not just a scary Pokemon. This is the moment Zoroark tries to protect him when he is worried that Zorua will be in danger!

    He made a really wonderful discovery! We will be able to provide more information about the two animals discovered this time in the near future, so please look forward to it!

    I'm really thankful to you!”

    I saw it was normal/ghost and immediately thought if that was an unused type. It is, so that’s cool.


    I like the Zorua look but not the Zoroark. It looks like it had a white Flood infecting it’s head. :lol

    So some info on Zorua and Zoroark

    -The species were actually formed when packs of Zoroark left their region after being shunned and chased out due to their illusions. Unable to survive in the harsh climates, they were reborn as ghost types. So them being weaker to dark makes sense cause they literally died.

    -Both forms emit illusions via the tendrils of their fur, both use illusions of their target's fears to draw power.

    -They dislike humans, are very wary, feed off of terror and Zoroark is extremely distrusting of strangers and overprotective of what it considers family.
