Pokémon Scarlet and Purple: Meet Gimmighoul, the new Pokémon that could contain One Piece

After several hours of jokes and jokes on November 5 and 6, 2022 in Pokémon GO but also on a special site, we finally know the identity of the new creature which will join the ninth generation in Pokémon Scarlet and Purple.

A teaser as original as Meltan’s

On Saturday, November 5, 2022, the Classic Community Day in Pokémon GO with infinity of Dratinis. At the end of the latter, players could spin golden PokéStops and get strange coinsplus dialogue with Professor Willow and Professor Jacq from Scarlet and Purple.

Looking closely at the ground, it was possible to see a strange Pokémon with antennae, which seemed attracted to the parts in question. At the same time, The Pokémon Company has put a website online with a strange chest full of coins. Aside from a scream and a number, we didn’t know much else about all of this until today.

In this original video, we can hear Professor Willow and Professor Jacq talk about Pokémon Gimmighoul, but they also tell us the strange story around the latter. It would appear that his Pokédex number is 999 (the number of coins in your chest) but this is just a theory. If this is indeed the case, it means that the ninth generation will add at least 90 new Pokémon to the game.

It would seem that it is up to the humans (hence the players) to fill the chest with the coins they find in the open world of Paldea.

Important information: To obtain the Gimmighoul chest form in Pokémon GO, it will obviously be necessary to do so by sending the Scarlet and Purple Pokémon to Pokémon GO.
