The first two episodes of Pokemon Horizons have aired, giving us a taste of what to expect from the new animated series after the finale of Pokemon Ultimate Journeys. This includes brand new characters and a newly introduced Pokémon that will appear in the Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLC for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, as confirmed on the official Pokémon Twitter account.

We met our new heroes, Liko, and her partner, Sprigatito, the Grass-type starter in the Paldea region. Before the series debut, the importance of Liko’s pendant was teased, and we now have a glimpse of its connection to a mysterious new Pokémon that appears to be emerging from the pendant.
The newly revealed Pokemon remains unnamed and bears an uncanny resemblance to Terapagos, the legendary Pokemon we’ll encounter in the second half of the DLC titled The Indigo Disc. It’ll be a while before we get that rate, so it’s likely that the new Pokemon will remain mysterious for at least a few more months.
However, franchise fans were quick to hypothesize that it has a relationship with Liko’s follower and the legendary Pokémon Terapagos. The most compelling fan theory is that Terapagos fills a role similar to that described in creation myths, in which the world is created on the back of a turtle.
Some fans have gone so far as to place the map of Paldea in-game over Terapagos The two images undeniably go well together. Still, fans are now struggling to find a way to include Liko’s follower and connection to the new Pokemon, so it’s back to the drawing board.
While these theories are purely speculative, they give us something to chew on until we get more information about the new Pokémon in Pokémon Horizons and its place in the Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLCcoming to Pokemon Scarlet and Violet later this year.
