A brand new, never-before-seen Pokemon has started to appear in Pokemon Go but can't actually be registered to the Pokedex.
The mysterious new Pokemon, which was found by a dataminer yesterday, began to appear in the Asia Pacific region following the conclusion of Chikorita Community Day, a three-hour event that saw increased spawns of second generation Pokemon Chikorita.
After Chikorita spawns concluded, many players saw the mysterious new Pokemon appear on the “nearby” radar, but after encountering the Pokemon and attempting to catch it, the Pokemon immediately transformed into Ditto or Chikorita and did not actually register to the Pokedex as seen or caught.
