Why 677? Because National Pokedex 677 is Espurr. All the signs definitely pointed towards it and that’s exactly what happened. Plus, Espurr was originally found in the Kalos region too!
When the Raid egg was revealed, trainers immediately guessed that it could be Espurr which evolves into Meowstic (Male), Meowstic (Female). Espurr is basically a gray colored furry Pokemon and under its ears, you will find organs which are the source of its psychic powers. If it weren’t for those folded ears, the immense psychic power would leak out! This Pokemon is quite powerful because it can make a blast radius of 300 feet.
Note that Espurr is vulnerable to Bug, Ghost and Dark moves and resistant to Fighting and Psychic. Moreover, its quick moves are Scratch and Confusion while main moves are Psyshock, Psychic and Energy Ball.
