It Hides Inside a Treasure Chest and Moves Slowly
These Gimmighoul hide inside sturdy treasure chests. While this provides them with a solid defense, the treasure chest’s weight causes Gimmighoul to move slowly, making travel difficult. It is not uncommon for Chest Form Gimmighoul to be mistaken for an antique and taken home or sold to an antique store.
Gimmighoul Controls People and Pokemon, Making Them Collect Coins
When Gimmighoul senses a person or Pokemon draw near, it ambushes them. It then uses ghost energy to control its target, forcing them to collect coins. Because it often hides in warehouses, shop corners, and other places people and Pokemon don’t frequent, it tends to keep persistent control of those it does manage to encounter.
Gimmighoul’s Roaming Form
It seems that Gimmighoul has a second form called Roaming Form Gimmighoul. This kind of Gimmighoul doesn’t hide in a treasure chest. It’s small, carries a single coin on its back, and can be found hiding all over Paldea. However, since they run away as soon as a person approaches, it seems not a single Trainer in Paldea has ever managed to catch one.
Surprisingly, Roaming Form Gimmighoul have been spotted in the world of Pokemon GO as well! It appears that Mr. Jacq—an expert on the biology of Pokemon in the Paldea region—and Professor Willow, who has been carrying out research alongside Trainers in the world of Pokemon GO, have joined forces to devise a way to catch them. Please wait for future announcements to hear all about their research results.
Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet are due out for Switch on November 18.
