Back when the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet DLC expansion was announced, it also revealed a new Pokemon named Terapagos. It would be one of the new focus characters in The Indigo Disk. Now the official Twitter account for the series shared art of a turtle-like Pokemon that resembles Terapagos.
This marks the second appearance of this new Pokemon Scarlet and Violet DLC Pokemon. It first appeared in the new anime series Pokemon Horizons. The image there was a bit more vague, due to the fact that it was surrounded in light during its debut. This official art is more distinct and offers a better idea of its design. It also confirms a connection to Terapagos, the already-revealed new character.
A newly discovered Pokémon appears in The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero for Pokémon Scarlet or Pokémon Violet!
Its splendid aura is reminiscent of the Legendary Pokémon Terapagos, but this Pokémon’s name and true nature are shrouded in mystery.
