?????? Coin of Paldea and new Pokémon in Pokémon GO: what are they and what do they mean?

On November 5, 2022, we received the first teaser of Pokémon Scarlet & Violet inside Pokémon GO via a peculiar item: the ?????? Coin from the Paldea region. This Golden Coin suggests that content from the new Nintendo Switch games will be coming to Pokémon GO this November. We give you all the details just below:

Starting at 5:00 pm local time on November 5, 2022, right after the Dratini Community Day event ended, many PokéStops would turn orange. When interacting with them, a conversation that Professor Willow had with his colleague Jacq from the Paldea region, which is the area where the new Pokémon Scarlet & Violet video games are set, would appear.

But it doesn't end there; after receiving this item, we can see how the new Pokémon Gimmighoul. When we touch it, an image of the Paldea Coin simply appears, as if asking for more.

We will be able to capture Gimmighoul's Roaming Form starting in 2023 by linking Pokémon GO with Pokémon Scarlet & Violet.

We will update this news in case there is any news on the matter.

On November 18, 2022, the new Pokémon video games for Nintendo Switch will be officially released, kicking off the Ninth Generation: Pokémon Scarlet & Violet.
