Marshadow will be a dual-type fighting/ghost Pokemon with no known evolutions, according to the online Pokemon encyclopedia Bulbapedia. Its Z-Move is the Soul-Stealing 7-Star Strike (say that seven times fast), which "punches and kicks the target consecutively with full force," according to Bulbapedia.
While we don't know when or where you'll be able to actually catch it, we do know Pokemon fans will see a lot Marshadow in the near future. It'll make an appearance in the upcoming Pokemon movie I Choose You!, due out in Japan this July. It's not yet clear when or if the movie will come out in the West, but check out this screenshot of Marshadow from the new anime below.
The last mythical Pokemon, Magearna, was released last December and could be caught by scanning a QR code (still available here) after finishing the main story in Sun and Moon.
Meanwhile, there are clues that a new Pokemon game is currently in the works for Nintendo Switch. Last month, Pokemon developer Game Freak put out a job ad on a third-party website looking for temporary employees to work on "an RPG game that is popular on a global scale" on a console.
That news followed reports last year that a new adaptation of Pokemon Sun and Moon, called Pokemon Stars, was in the works for Switch. Due to be released this summer, it has apparently been pushed back to "later in the year."
