...Dang, this particular preview is doing a great job at looking convincing.

Maybe it's just a present that looks like a Charjabug, like how Rotom Pokedex showed a picture of Heliolisk in SM007, when Nurse Joy mentioned that Litten was fitted with a Heliolisk collar. I don't think Ash would give an actual Pokemon as a present, but it would be nice if it turns out to be the case. Because the question mark is just hiding the answer to a question from Oha Suta, so it's probably not meant to be hiding Sophocles getting a Charjabug.
If you ask me, Sophocles in the game has actually a Charjabug's evolution form Vikavolt. I don't think Ash would probably give him an actual Pokemon as a gift like Playerking mentioned, but having only one Pokemon in the hand is kind of lonely.
