Pokemon UNITE is introducing a new addition to its roster, Greedent, alongside its Halloween event.

The announcement came via a tweet published on the verified Pokemon UNITE Twitter profile on Monday, Oct. 18. In a short video clip, players were shown several themed features coming to the game during the brand new seasonal event. Among colorful outfits for both Pokemon and trainers, fans were greeted with another combatant waiting in the wings: the squirrel Pokemon Greedent.

Unfortunately, there isn’t much information circulating about Greedent at the time of writing. DBLTAP cannot confirm the veracity of any leads or speculation at this time. All we have to go on is the handful of seconds where the “Tricky” Pokemon was shown onscreen.

Greedent is a normal-type introduced in Generation VIII. It is also known as the “Greedy” Pokemon and is the evolved form of Skwovet. It is most commonly associated with berry hoarding to the point where it doesn’t notice if some go missing.

It appears that Greedent will have a kit that may have a few ranged attacks with a melee Unite Move, similar to Charizard or Cramorant. Therefore, we expect it to be an offensive character.

Not everyone was thrilled with the reveal, however. Due to the “spooky” nature of the event, several fans have suggested that the game introduce other ghost-types, instead—with Decidueye being among the most popular.

Others argued that the reveal of “less popular” Pokemon was actually a welcome change that kept the game more interesting.

Nevertheless, Pokemon UNITE’s Halloween event will run from Oct. 20 to Nov. 7.
