UPDATE 9/1/22 1:33 p.m. ET: The Pokémon Company has confirmed a few key details about Grafaiai via Twitter, including its typing: Poison/Normal-type.
"This Pokémon specializes in using its poisonous saliva — which changes color depending on what the Pokémon eats — to attack foes by spitting at them or by slashing at them after coating its claws with the saliva," the Pokémon Company wrote.

Pokémon is just a few months away from yet another installment to the franchise. Its no question, that everybody likes Pokemon and the games that come with it. And it's that time for another new game.
It's been almost three years since the release of Pokémon's last game, Sword and Shield. But coming on Nov. 18 is Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
With the new Pokémon coming soon, the Pokémon Twitter team has been hinting at a new Pokémon. And a legendary Pokémon as well. That Pokémon is Grafaiai.
In the last two days, the Pokémon Twitter team has tweeted two different tweets about the new Pokémon. The first of two tweeted on Aug. 29 showed a forest in the daytime. In each of these images, there was something colorful, either lines or a circle.
On Tuesday, Aug. 30, Pokémon tweeted again. The images followed a similar pattern of nature photos with colorful aspects to them. This time the images were taken at night and with a closer look, you can see something in the background.
Look closely in the shadows and you can see an outline of what we think is to be the new Pokémon, Grafaiai.
Besides the shadowy outlines, we don't know what Grafaiai is going to look like. We do know that it is going to be difficult to catch and is very sneaky.
