How To Evolve Gimmighoul Into Gholdengo In Pokémon GO

Pokémon GO has received a major update for the game as Trainers can connect the game to Pokémon Scarlet or Violet on the Nintendo Switch. This allows players to use Pokémon GO to influence what might appear in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet and Pokemon GO.

One such change is that the Pokemon known as Gimmighoul is starting to appear more frequently in Pokémon GO, as its Roaming Form was impossible to catch in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. But can you evolve Gimmighoul in Pokemon GO? We will go over that in this guide.

2nd June 2023 Update: We've updated this guide to reflect that Golden PokéStops will return for the Searching for Gold event in Pokémon GO. However, these stops will appear without using Golden Lure Modules, which Roaming Form Gimmighoul won't be spawning here.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet introduced a lot of new ways for Pokémon to evolve, mostly due to the fact that Pokémon Scarlet and Violet were open-world, and they got rid of random encounters. In Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, Gimmighoul is confirmed to evolve into a Pokemon named Gholdengo; however, the method is quite interesting for both Pokémon games.

To get Gholdengo, players had to collect 999 Gimmighoul Coins to do so, and it's the same in Pokémon GO. To evolve Gimmighoul in Pokémon GO, they will need to collect 999 Gimmighoul Coins, so it is worth the time to collect these Gimmighoul Coins.

Now that you know that you need Gimmighoul Coins to evolve Gimmighoul into Gholdengo, the question becomes how players get Gimmighoul Coins. At the time of this writing, players can get them in two different ways.

The first is through Golden PokéStops, which by spinning, you can obtain Gimmighoul Coins, but another way is to make Gimmighoul their Buddy Adventure Pokémon. Gimmighoul will naturally find Gimmighoul Coins for you to collect, making this the most efficient way to find Golden PokéStops.
