It looks like Diancie will be the Mythical Pokémon featured in Pokémon Go Fest 2023. While the English Pokémon Go website doesn’t hint at this Pokémon’s appearance, a few localized sites seem to be one step ahead, such as the German and French versions of the blog.

Where the English site features an expandable tooltip that explains what Pokémon Go seasons are, the translated pages instead contain the information about Diancie – not the first mishap of this kind.

Here’s a translation of the German site’s text: “The Mythical Pokémon Diancie, the Jewel Pokémon, is the crown jewel of the Hidden Gems Season. This brilliant Pokémon celebrates its Pokémon Go debut during Pokémon Go Fest 2023.”

The text then points users to the Pokémon Go Fest 2023 website, where they can learn more about how they might be able to catch Diancie, though whoever put the text up didn’t actually include the link properly. In any case, when you navigate to the Go Fest 2023 overview, there is no further information on Diancie yet.

The current season is called Hidden Gems, so this reveal may not be incredibly surprising to anyone knowing their Pokémon lore. Diancie is a Gen 6 Pokémon of the Fairy- and Rock-types and can Mega Evolve into Mega Diancie. It's the only Mythical Pokémon with a Mega Evolution, giving it some uniqueness among the group.

The Hidden Gems update also brought lots of balance adjustments to Pokémon Go’s PvE and PvP battles, introducing two brand-new moves among other changes.
