Trainers can now connect Pokémon GO with Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, allowing them finally get their hands on Roaming Gimmighoul. This also sees numerous additions and features added to the game, including Golden Lure Modules and the Golden PokéStop.
With these Golden PokéStops, players might notice a new item in their inventory, Gimminghoul Coins. Here, we are going to go over all the details about how players can collect Gimmighoul Coins and what they are used for in Pokémon GO.
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.
How Do You Get Gimmighoul Coins In Pokémon GO?
In the most recent Pokémon Presents presentation, The Pokémon Company announced that Pokémon GO and Pokémon Scarlet and Violet would be able to connect with each other. Because of that, Gimmighoul is now appearing in Pokémon GO, making it possible for players to get Gimmighoul Coins.
Niantic has given us the details on how to do so, and one of the key ways is through Golden PokéStops as Trainers will have to go to the Golden PokéStop and spin them, which will give players a Gimmighoul Coin. Another way is by setting Gimmighoul as your Buddy Adventure Pokémon, which generates Gimmighoul Coins through exploration.
What Do Gimmighoul Coins Do In Pokémon GO?
In Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, several new ways exist to evolve Pokémon, as in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, they'll need to collect 999 Gimmighoul Coins to evolve Gimmighoul into Gholdengo. This method is directly copied to Pokémon GO as Trainers will want to collect Gimmighoul Coins to evolve Gimmighoul but the process can be sped up in Pokémon GO by staying connected to Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
