For Trainers eager to find and capture as many Gimmighoul as possible in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, there is a special secret surrounding the Gimmighoul Coins that players collect throughout the game. While keeping their eyes peeled for Ancient Chests scattered around the world, players may be wondering what they’ll need to do to give this Pokemon an extra boost in power and unlock their evolution.

As gamers continue to explore the Paldea Region, there are many different ways to collect these coins. They do serve a purpose rather than holding up space in your inventory, so let’s find out where to go and what to do to get Gimmighoul to evolve into its final form!

How To Evolve Gimmighoul Into Gholdengo In Pokemon Scarlet And Violet

As player encounter Gimmighoul in the wild, they’ll have a few options. If you decide to spare Gimmighoul and capture it, you’ll be rewarded with a small smattering of coins. However, defeating these monsters will garnish the player with even more coins, which are necessary to evolve Gimmighoul into Gholdengo. Players will need to gather up 999 Gimmighoul Coins, and while the Roaming Form of this creature hands out a few when encountered, the easiest way to make this happen is by battling and defeating as many Gimmighoul as possible on their journey.

While they tend to hide inside of these Ancient Chests, it also helps them stand out from the crowd a bit more. As you explore Ruins and Towns, spotting these chests will help players pinpoint the location of these small creatures, and a quick battle will rack up at least 50 coins per defeat. They will eventually respawn in these locations, so trainers will want to keep their eyes peeled for a chest or two to farm these special items.

Once a Trainer has obtained 999 Gimmighoul Coins, using a Rare Candy or battling until their favorite Mimic Monster has leveled up, allowing players a chance to finally obtain this tricky evolution, and continue onwards with a new Steel/Ghost-type Pokemon in their party. Keeping your eyes peeled for new monsters like Grafaiai and Cylizar on this adventure will give trainers the perfect opportunity to start filling out their Pokedex while on this grand adventure.
