The Pokemon Company is up to its usual tricks again. After posting a cryptic teaser on YouTube, it seems something ghost-type related is on the way to Pokemon Scarlet & Violet.
A New Gen 9 Pokemon Might Be Revealed For Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Tomorrow
A video showcasing a researcher walking through Paldea in a found footage style camera angle gets cut off right as they run into a Gengar behind a tree. While this could be teasing something spooky, since it is right around Halloween, there is also a new video set to premiere at 9 am EST.
The video is currently titled “????” and has an image of Gengar as the thumbnail. We’re pretty certain a new ghost-type Pokemon is going to be announced, but nothing is confirmed that it will be a brand-new Pokemon. We’re just going on our hunch.
With Gengar being teased, it’s possible a new Paldean form or side evolution could be at play here. We’ve already seen old Pokemon like Girafirig get a brand-new evolution, so why not Gengar?
We won’t have to wait long to find out what will be revealed tomorrow, but we’re excited to find out. There’s been a ton of news about Pokemon Scarlet and Violet leading up to its release, and the game is out in just a few weeks.
We’ve already learned about the ghost/fire Pokemon Ceruledge, so hopefully, if it is a new ghost-type Pokemon, it has a different typing. Maybe a ghost/rock or ghost/water for some added variety. Either way, it’s October, and it’s the perfect time to reveal a brand-new ghost Pokemon for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
We have plenty of helpful tips, tricks, and guides to help make sure you’ve got everything you need ready when pokemon Scarlet and Violet releases on November 18. Check out how to preload the game, and all of the pre-order bonuses currently available.
