I figured they'd only reveal Sirfetch'd, so I'm surprised they actually had a trailer. I thought they'd only update the site. Well, I still think this was a really cool reveal. And with Sirfetch'd being exclusive to Sword, I hope we'll also get the corresponding Shield exclusive sometime later this month.

I’m still like...in shock they made us all wait for almost a week just to see a Sword exclusive Pokémon. Sure, it’s cool and all, but i’m angry we had to wait for this long.

I guess we still have next week to look forward to for starter evo reveals. Cause the poll ends this week

I'm really gonna need another wild Rotom to glitch leak the Shield counterpart later this week... Unlike the sparsity of this cycle in general, it really feels like we are owed this. Especially with how random this glitch thing is if it really ends up being this one time thing.

I was hoping, and still kinda am hoping, that this glitch thing will lead to some other reveal because if it isn't story-related or otherwise related to something new being discovered for rotom then it's just inexcusably lame and not remotely clever.

The glitch thing was just a joke with it happening on Friday the 13th

Gods I hate rotom. Why are they suddenly so obsessed with the damned thing?

It's really weird to me how they're treating this like an in-universe pokemon are real thing while at the same time handling this as a video game.

A rotom glitch doesn't even make sense for Friday the 13th. It's supposed to be a creepy eerie bad luck thing. If anything a ghost type should have messed with things.

It didn't tie in very well with the date if that was really the point. It kinda just failed on all accounts in terms of being funny or even clever.
It was acting like. "Oh we were going to show you guys a new pokemon, but Uh Oh, site is acting up! Must be our unlucky day! HAHAHA!"
Also, Rotom IS Ghost type

Oh god, the thought of them explaining it like that just made me cringe so hard.

And this is coming from the chick who likes terrible puns and dad jokes.

Yeah, I should have worded that better. They didn't focus on the ghost aspect of Rotom, just the electrical 'gets into electronic stuff' bit.

Friday teh 13th weirdness makes me think more horror type stuff. Like maybe instead of being all pixels and glitched words would blink in and out, maybe occasionally a ghastly face flashes on screen. The blurred picture warps between hyper pixelization and the ghost sprites you'd see without the silph scope.
