Features

Roaming Form Gimmighoul, available to catch only in Pokémon GO!

Professor Willow and Jacq from the Paldea region have made a new discovery: Trainers can now encounter and catch Roaming Form Gimmighoul in Pokémon GO!

What’s more, their latest research report has concluded that this form of Gimmighoul can also evolve into Gholdengo, the Coin Entity Pokémon! Similar to Chest Form Gimmighoul in Paldea, Gholdengo seems to be tied to the mysterious coins we recently uncovered!

The key to encountering these mysterious Pokémon appears to be the Coin Bag. Trainers can use this special item once per day to temporarily attract Roaming Form Gimmighoul in the wild! Professor Willow and Jacq have also confirmed that Golden Pokéstops can be created with the help of another recent breakthrough: the Golden Lure Module! The Coin Bag can also be used in integration with the Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet games on the Nintendo Switch!

And who knows how else we might find more of the mysterious coins? Perhaps catching and exploring with Roaming Form Gimmighoul will reveal more…


Elite Raids return!

Gather your companions and prepare for the return of Elite Raids!

Elite Raids are a challenging type of Raid Battle that Trainers take on in-person. Challenge the Raid Bosses Regieleki and Regidrago in Elite Raids for the only opportunities to catch these Legendary Pokémon this Season!


GO Battle League

The GO Battle League returns as part of Season 10: Rising Heroes! Get your Pokémon ready to battle in competitions such as the Fantasy Cup: Ultra League Edition, Color Cup: Great League Edition, Mountain Cup: Great League Edition, and Spring Cup: Great League Edition!
