Is this new Pokemon an Absol Preevolution?

It popped up for a split second during the Kanto Starter Mega Evolution showcase part of today’s Nintendo Direct presentation, and it has one heck of a resemblance to a certain Dark type that’s also get a Mega Evolved form.  Have a look:


As you can see, it looks a lot like a preevolved form of Absol, possibly hinting that the Absol ‘line’ has been expanded to give the final Mega form more options (in the way of new attacks only this younger version can learn).

But what do you think?  Is this a new Absol preevo?  And if so, when will it officially be revealed?
