The long-running series was kickstarted in 1996 with the release of Pokémon Red & Blue. Those original games introduced the world to 151 Pokémon but now, the ninth generation of games have arrived with the total number of pocket monsters now at an impressive 1008.

And Nintendo has celebrated that milestone by making their 1000th Pokémon a unique little creature.

Called Gholdengo, the evolved form of ghost-type Gimmighou has a body seemingly “made up of 1,000 coins,” according to its Pokédex listing (via IGN). “This Pokémon gets along well with others and is quick to make friends with anybody,” it continues.

To get your hands on the ghost/steel type Gholdengo, players will need to collect 999 Gimmighoul coins, which can be found across Paldea but can also be won by defeating various Gimmighouls in battle.

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet were released today (November 18) for Nintendo Switch.

Encouraging players to “go where you want, and do what it is you really wanna do the most,” Pokémon Scarlet & Violet will feature “three grand stories” after players enrol in an academy.

It was previously confirmed that one of these stories will see players out to defeat a series of gym leaders before taking on a series of league battles, but a recently-released trailer has shared more details about other storylines.

The trailer introduces Starfall Street (which will see players “face off against rebellious students”) and antagonists Team Star, who are described as the school’s troublemakers. They’re led by boss Mela who rides some sort of disco truck and uses fire-type monsters.

The trailer then reveals the Path Of Legends which sees players tasked with seeking out the legendary Herba Mystica before they cross paths with a giant Klawf, AKA the Stony Cliff Titan.

In other news, Ubisoft has shared a series of concept art for the upcoming Splinter Cell remake, with the company hoping the title will provide a “good foundation” for the future of the franchise.
