WHAT IF THIS IS HOW THEY INTRODUCE KECLEON IN POKEMON GO!
It doesn’t make much sense having a camouflage Pokémon just cruising around the overworld. Maybe all we’ll see on the map is it’s eye + tail and the ditto placeholder just holds the coding for the “oh?” dialogue pic.twitter.com/IUrjrFkJHC

which apparently turns out to be true as people who are catching these little guys report they turn into dittos afterward
Yeah I got like 4-5 and all were ditto

others aren’t quite sure what the hybrid creature is – but can’t help but love it anyway
It’s kind of adorable, it looks like a ditto, mixed with an unown, mixed with a combee.

A new creature has appeared in Pokémon Go, and no one seems quite sure what it is or what it is doing.
Yesterday, IGN reported that a data miner had pulled a potential new Pokémon from the files of Pokémon Go. As of this morning, Eurogamer and IGN have both reported that the regional Chikorita Community Day events in both the Asia Pacific region and the European region ended with players being flooded with a mysterious new creature that could not be caught.
It has no name. It looks like the ghost emoji with an industrial nut for a head. When players capture it, it turns into Ditto, a Pokémon that is famous for morphing into other Pokémon. As an extensive thread on the Pokémon Go Redditshows, people are both amazed and frustrated that they cannot catch this weird little creature.
Kento Suga, the Global Marketing Lead for Pokémon Go, simply tweeted a single image of the pokemon with “???” as the text. Clearly there is something official (and fishy) going on with this thing.
Sadly, it seems that all we know about this Pokémon currently is that we don’t know anything.
