The publicKey must be revealed before the wallet can inject an operation to the blockchain. The client (and most wallets) will automatically add a reveal operation onto the first operation you try to perform with the new address. E.g. sending xtz or an fa1.2/fa2 token, delegating to a baker or originating a contract, will all trigger a reveal operation first
