This isn’t a Mimic – it’s the brand new Pokémon Gimmighul coming to Pokémon Go and Scarlet & Violet
The new Generation 9 Pokémon just keep coming. We only found out about the newest addition through a Pokémon Go datamine a few days ago, but it’s now been officially unveiled. Gimmighul is a little creature who loves gold and continues the trend of great wordplay in Pokémon names.
Gimmighoul is also a new addition to the fictional world of Pokémon. The debut trailer features Professor Willow and Scarlet from GO and Mr. Jacq from Violet talking about the new species. Yes, that means Gimmighoul will appear in both the next mainline Pokémon game and the mobile spinoff. It wouldn’t be the first time a newcomer has made its home in Pokémon Go – Meltan was a trendsetter in that sense.
As shown in the trailer, Gimmighoul can take two different forms: Chest and Roaming. The former is when it’s in a treasure chest full of coins, and the latter is when it’s roaming around with a single coin on its back. If some previous Scarlet and Violet leaks can be trusted, collecting enough coins around the map will indeed lead to Gimmighoul’s evolution. Anyway, it’s nice to meet another new face in the ninth generation of Pokémon.
Gimmighoul is the latest in a long line of mons introduced in this way. Last we met Greavard, a friendly little ghost dog with a candle on his head. Previously, we were introduced to the big, round electric frog Bellibolt. We’ve seen Pokémon for more than 20 years so far, but The Pokémon Company is clearly not short of ideas.
We can experience all the new features soon: The release date of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is Friday November 18th. Gimmighoul may appear in both the new versions and Pokémon Go, but Scarlet and Violet are still Nintendo Switch exclusives.
