The Gimmighoul evolution method in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is one of the most unusual and time-consuming, as it relies partly on luck and partly on spending time scouring the countryside for tiny golden coins. Even if you aren’t bothered by completing the Pokedex, you could do worse than adding Gholdengo to your team. This guide explains how to evolve Gimmighoul and what role Gholdengo can fill on your team.
Where to find Gimmighoul
If you landed here without actually having Gimmighoul in your party, you can track one down fairly quickly. Head to the watchtower in South Province Area Four or Area Two, and you’ll find a chest at the top of the tower. Interact with it to start a battle against Gimmighoul. Bring along a Pokemon who knows Nuzzle or Thunder Wave to inflict paralysis and make catching them easier.
