[Discussion] Anyone else notice the Mimikyu hat on the new loading screen?

[Discussion] Anyone else notice the Mimikyu hat on the new loading screen?

Noticed. But.. I don't know if it means anything else then 'Hey.. Gen 7 will come.. after 4,5,6'

I took it to mean we'll have a new hat to wear pretty soon. Now if Pikachu wore a Mimikyu hat that's one more variant of him I actually wouldn't mind.

Isn't this the first time something from a future gen nowhere near release has been used in the game?

My speculations:

1.) It's just the artist being an artist after told to make a spooky loading screen. He saw Mimikyu and figured he'd add it as a hat in the loading screen.

2.) We may get the hat as an event item.

3.) It'll probably be a buyable thing instead...because we've gotten enough free clothing pieces.

4.) Mimikyu will be part of the event for some bizarre reason and everyone will be excited, confused, and extremely OCD about the enormous gap in the dex.

5.) Most-likely another event Pikachu...because Go is giving Shuffle competition for most Hatchu.

Yeah and its gen 7 which is the latest available Gen of Poke now. Its wierd and awesome at the same time

Mimikyu will be part of the event for some bizarre reason and everyone will be excited, confused, and extremely OCD about the enormous gap in the dex.

Alolan Marowak (ghost/fire) & Al Meowth (dark) wouldn't cause a gap as they retain their kanto dex numbers

UltraSunMoon (2nd instalment in gen7) is releasing 2 weeks after Halloween.

There's lots they could do to tie in with this

Thousands of Pokémon Go players who haven't played a mainline game since the OG and don't know the gens would die from shock.

Not really. However: the 20th movie (in its dub format) is coming out after Halloween and so EX raids could utilize Ho-Oh and mewtwo simultaneously. As for the main series games, they’ll do their own thing with US/M

We will see what happens

New outfits hype

Maybe it'll be a new hat?
