Following the reveal of Pokémon Sword and Shield for the Nintendo Switch during last week's Pokémon Direct, it's been discovered Nintendo, Game Freak and Creatures Inc. filed a trademark in Japan for Armoured Mewtwo earlier on in the same month. The trademark covers videogames, merchandising and events.

If you keep up with Pokémon news, you may or may not have already heard a rumour about armoured pocket monsters coming to the latest generation of games. Alternatively, this trademark could be tied to the official Trading Card Game or the upcoming movie, Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution.

Feel free to speculate in the comments below.
