What the heck is this mysterious new pokemon?

Late Thursday night, the official Pokémon Twitter account sent out this tweet:

Not exactly the most unusual bit of social media advertising. Sword and Shieldare just a few weeks away and The Pokémon Company and Nintendo haven't been gun-shy as of late when it comes to revealing new pokémon. However, when you click the link, it takes you to the regular Pokémon Sword and Shield website. There doesn't seem to be anything out of the ordinary, almost as if this is a tweet encouraging us to look up week-old news, until you look in the bottom lefthand corner of the screen.

There, you'll find a small image sort of glitching out. Hover your cursor over it and it flees. When you're able to click it, you'll hear its cry before being shown this unusual and censored profile of the new 'mon.
