Pokémon GO can now connect to Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet!
The Nintendo Switch games Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet can now connect to Pokémon GO!
Send Postcards from Pokémon GO to Pokémon Scarlet or Pokémon Violet for opportunities to encounter Roaming Form Gimmighoul and collect Gimmighoul Coins in Pokémon GO. Sending Postcards will also affect your Paldean adventure—in Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet, the patterns of Vivillon that live in the Paldea region will change based on the location listed on the Postcard.
For more information on Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet, please see the official website.
You can use the Coin Bag to catch Roaming Form Gimmighoul!
By sending a Postcard to Pokémon Scarlet or Pokémon Violet, you will be able to use the Coin Bag in Pokémon GO.
When you use the Coin Bag, Roaming Form Gimmighoul will appear near you for a certain period of time!
It seems that Gimmighoul love and are lured in by the bag’s treasure chest–like appearance and the sound of coins jingling within. Professor Willow noticed that Roaming Form Gimmighoul wanders around more to return to treasure chests than to collect coins, so he developed the Coin Bag and entrusted it to you.
You can use it once per day by sending a Postcard. We hope you enjoy this connection with Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet every day!
Collect 999 Gimmighoul Coins to evolve Roaming Form Gimmighoul into Gholdengo!
Give 999 Gimmighoul Coins to Roaming Form Gimmighoul to evolve it into Gholdengo!
You can get Gimmighoul Coins by catching Roaming Form Gimmighoul or by adventuring with it as your buddy.
You can also get them from Golden PokéStops!
Use a Golden Lure Module for a chance to collect Gimmighoul Coins!
You can obtain Golden Lure Modules by sending multiple Postcards to Pokémon Scarlet or Pokémon Violet.*
Golden Lure Modules turn PokéStops into Golden PokéStops. You can give them a spin for the chance to collect Gimmighoul Coins!
In addition, it seems that you can get more items from Golden PokéStops than from regular PokéStops, and extremely fortunate Trainers may even encounter Roaming Form Gimmighoul!
Explore the world around you to collect Gimmighoul Coins and evolve Gimmighoul into Gholdengo!
For a limited time, PokéStops may turn gold without a Golden Lure Module!
For the next 24 hours, PokéStops may spontaneously turn gold to celebrate the connection to Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet.
Roaming Form Gimmighoul won’t appear at Golden PokéStops if a Golden Lure Module wasn’t used, but treasure-hunting Trainers may still find Gimmighoul Coins when they spin the PokéStop!
Avatar items and stickers
New stickers featuring Roaming Form Gimmighoul will be available from PokéStops and Gifts, as well as in the in-game shop.
Campaigns to commemorate a new feature!
We’ll hold various campaigns to celebrate the ability to connect Pokémon GO to Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet!
One box containing 9 Gimmighoul Coins will be available at no cost to all Trainers in the in-game shop for a limited time.
A retweet campaign will be held to give Trainers a chance to win avatar items and stickers featuring Roaming Form Gimmighoul. For more information, please check the official Twitter account for Pokémon GO.
