Pokemon Go Teases New Pokemon for Fashion Week

Pokemon Go is teasing a new Pokemon for its upcoming Fashion Week event. Last night, Pokemon Go posted a tease for its annual Fashion Week event, which kicks off later this month. The tease contained a silhouette of Furfrou, a Normal-type Pokemon that first appeared in Pokemon X and Y. Fashion Week typically contains new costumed Pokemon, but Furfrou seems like a natural fit given that the Pokemon has a number of forms that can be changed with a simple visit to a style salon. You can check out the initial tease below:

Furfrou is a Normal-type Pokemon that resembles a French poodle. In the main series games, Furfrou has nine different "trims," special looks that it gains when visiting a style salon. Each of these trims only last for a few days and provide no mechanical benefit to players. 

Pokemon Go first teased Furfrou's arrival last month when it switched over its loading screen. Furfrou appears as one of several Pokemon whose shadows form a frightening figure in celebration of Halloween. Thanks to datamines, we know that Pokemon Go developers added Furfrou's various trims to the game, although it's unclear whether Pokemon Go players will have the ability to change Furfrou's looks or if players will need to catch Furfrou with the various trims in the wild. Several other costumed Pokemon are also expected to appear as a part of the event.
