The Pokémon GO Fest summer event, which began at 10 a.m. on July 25, saw the first appearance of the Pokémon Rotom and Unknown in different colors.
Rotom is a Plasma Pokémon from the main game Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. It has the ability to change form by crawling into household appliances and appears in a variety of forms.
Rotom's appearance in Pokémon GO was confirmed in the kickoff video announcing the start of the summer event, GO Fest. You can see it on the screen shown by John Hanke, CEO of Pokémon GO developer and operator Niantic, saying that some of the Pokémon that will appear at GO Fest will be shown ahead of time. Top left, CP674 is Rotom (Wash Rotom).
Details on how the Rotom will appear are still unknown, but we know that by taking a GO Snapshot of the Pokémon, Wash Rotom will appear in the picture (photobomb) and then appear on the map and can be captured.
In addition, in the second row from the bottom center, you can see an Unknown 'O' with a different color symbol. Only the O is shown here, but since G and O are expected to appear at GO Fest, it's possible that you'll find a different color for both.
The unfamiliar Pokémon at the bottom center is the event-only Squirtle wearing a Pikachu Sun Visor. The Kanto Starters (Squirtle, Charamander, and Bulbasaur) wearing the Pikachu Sun Visor also make their first event-only appearance.
The Pokémon GO Fest runs from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on both July 25 and 26. See also the article below (Japanese) for more notes before starting and specifications.
