New Pokémon Gimmighoul Revealed for Scarlet and Violet

Gimmighoul is a coin chest Pokémon who is a Ghost-type. After discovering hundreds of different species of Pokémon, fans are used to seeing weird-looking ones like Gimmighoul. It can appear in two different forms the Chest form or the Roaming form. The Chest form can be seen in places like shops so it can try to fool trainers into thinking its an actual treasure chest. Gimmighoul moves slowly in Chest form but it can easily ambush an unsuspecting player and use ghost energy to force players to collect coins.

The Roaming Gimmighoul can be seen holding a single coin instead of disguising itself in a chest. They can be found hiding in the wild but unlike the Chest form, it moves extremely fast making it near impossible to catch.

It has also been revealed that Roaming Gimmighoul will soon be catchable in Pokémon GO. Pokémon fans will not have to much longer to explore the Paldea region with Pokemon Scarlet and Violet scheduled for Nov. 18.
