Pokémon Scarlet and Violet reveals (and leaks) have been few and far between, given that the game is due to drop next week. However, in a new trailer released this morning, an odd monster spotted by Pokémon GO players was revealed to be a new monster native to the Paldea region: Gimmighoul. This new monster will likely be a Ghost type, and can be caught and tamed in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
New Pokemon in Scarlet and Violet, Gimmighoul, revealed in recent trailer
The trailer gave Pokémon fans eager for more information plenty. Rather than a quick reveal, the video showed Gimmighoul's background and behavior, as well as its name and design. Gimmighoul is noted to be both shy, but manipulative via a fairy tale about its origins. Apparently, this Pokémon rarely leaves its treasure chest. Gimmighoul loves coins, though, and it will mesmerize others to collect coins for it and place them in its chest.
Gimmighoul has been seen in a unique Roaming Form throughout the weekend by Pokémon GO players. In Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, Gimmighoul will be lurking around in its Chest Form. It's presumed that the two forms will be unique to each game, so the Roaming Form may not be available in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, and the Chest Form may not be available in Pokémon GO.
