Pokémon Scarlet and Violet’s latest critter is the coin-loving Gimmighoul

Gimmighoul is the latest Pokémon to be revealed for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, and it even has a Pokémon Go connection.

You might have already seen the little critter wandering around Pokémon Go, but Gimmighoul has officially been revealed, though it doesn’t seem to be the most straight forward pocket monster around. Those that have been keeping an eye on chest.pokemon.com will have seen a chest filled with coins, which is apparently one form of Gimmighoul itself. Whereas the one walking around, giving you coins in Pokémon Go is a different form that walks around outside of the chest.

These two forms were discussed by characters Jacq from Scarlet and Violet, and Professor Willow from Pokémon Go, where the former dubbed the chest form… well, Chest Form, and the latter went with Roaming Form for the version of Gimmighoul that can walk around. Interestingly, in the Paldea region it seems to only be possible to catch Gimmighoul when it’s in its Chest Form, as Roaming Form will run away from you. But in Pokémon Go, the Roaming Form happily walks right up to you.
