The mysterious Pokémon, Gimmighoul!

A mysterious Pokémon suddenly showed up all over the world. Did you all see it?

Research conducted by Professor Willow and Jacq, a biology teacher from the Paldea region, confirms that Trainers have spotted Gimmighoul in its Roaming Form. Further, there’s another form in the Paldea region called Chest Form Gimmighoul.

How do you catch Roaming Form Gimmighoul? And how exactly can Trainers use these mysterious coins they’ve gotten hold of? Wait for the next research report to find out!

In 2023, Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet will be linked with Pokémon GO!

The Nintendo Switch games Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet—slated for release on Friday, November 18, 2022—will link with Pokémon GO!

This feature is planned for 2023, so stay tuned for future announcements with more details!
