    Commemorating Twenty Six Years Since The Release Of The Original Pokémon Games With A Look Back On 1008 Encounters

    The Pokémon Company is commemorating the discovered Pokémon surpassing the 1000 mark with the release of Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet.

    Meet Gholdengo, Pokémon #1,000 in the National Pokédex

    Gholdengo, the Pokémon that falls at #1,000 in the National Pokédex, evolves from Chest Form Gimmighoul or Roaming Form Gimmighoul.

    Gimmighoul evolves into Gholdengo when it levels up after its Trainer has collected 999 Gimmighoul Coins. Apparently, this lively and cheerful Pokémon’s body is made of a thousand coins. It is friendly to both people and Pokémon.

    Gholdengo functions by controlling the coins that comprise its body, and it even uses them as weapons in battle. The coins are densely packed, making Gholdengo durable. It can absorb impacts and lessen the damage it takes by letting coins fly off from areas hit by enemies. Gholdengo can attack by firing coins from anywhere on its body.

    Meet the Evolutions of the Three Starter Pokémon!

    1) Floragato and Meowscarada

    Name: Floragato

    Category: Grass Cat Pokémon

    Type: Grass

    Height: 2’11” (0.9 m)

    Weight: 26.9 lbs. (12.2 kg)

    Ability: Overgrow





    Mischievous and Prone to Loneliness

    Floragato is a mischievous show-off, desiring attention and company. If its Trainer won’t entertain it, Floragato may try to get their attention by misbehaving—it might wrap its Trainer up with its vine in their sleep, for example.

    It Skillfully Wields Its Vine and Strikes with Its Flower Bud

    Floragato is intelligent and dexterous. The flower bud on its neck is on the tip of a long vine. Floragato specializes in attacking by deftly manipulating this vine to strike opponents with the hard flower bud on the end.

    Name: Meowscarada

    Category: Magician Pokémon

    Type: Grass/Dark

    Height: 4’11″ (1.5 m)

    Weight: 68.8 lbs. (31.2 kg)

    Ability: Overgrow






    Flower Bombs Catch Opponents Off Guard Like Magic

    The leaf that was growing from the base of Floragato’s neck has become a cape. Meowscarada uses the fur lining its cape to reflect and scatter light, thus camouflaging the stem of its flower bomb and making it look like the flower bomb is floating in midair. Furthermore, Meowscarada can attach its pollen-packed flower bombs to various surfaces and choose when to set them off. With skillful misdirection, Meowscarada rigs foes with flower bombs and sets them off before foes realize what’s going on.

    Strong Attachment to Its Trainer

    Meowscarada is prideful and likes to show off, but it’s also sensitive. This jealous Pokémon will often display strong attachment to its Trainer, and its mood will sour if it sees another Pokémon getting their attention.

    2) Crocalor and Skeledirge

    Name: Crocalor

    Category: Fire Croc Pokémon

    Type: Fire

    Height: 3’3″ (1 m)

    Weight: 67.7 lbs. (30.7 kg)

    Ability: Blaze





    It Can Control the Egg-Shaped Fireball on Its Head

    This Pokémon’s fire energy and overflowing vitality have mixed together into an egg-shaped fireball that Crocalor can maintain atop its head.

    In battle, Crocalor can send out the egg-shaped fireball as part of a move.

    It Projects a Destructive Voice with Its Flames

    The valve in this Pokémon’s flame sac is closely related to its vocal cords, and Crocalor tends to let its voice out when it breathes fire. It cannot be said that this voice is beautiful. When Crocalor tries to breathe more-powerful fire, its voice becomes more destructive, which may cause some opponents to take damage.

    Name: Skeledirge

    Category: Singer Pokémon

    Type: Fire/Ghost

    Height: 5’3″ (1.6 m)

    Weight: 719.8 lbs. (326.5 kg)

    Ability: Blaze






    Its Powerful Voice Soothes All Who Hear

    Skeledirge is a busybody with a caring personality. Its gentle but powerful singing voice is filled with vitality, and it soothes the hearts of all who hear it. Foes that hear Skeledirge sing are left with feelings of warmth and fulfillment, thus losing their will to battle.

    An Independent Fireball Spirit

    Skeledirge gained its Ghost-type powers due to the influence of the soul inhabiting its fireball. The soul in the fireball is independent, and it can change its form via the power of Skeledirge’s singing voice.

    3) Quaxwell and Quaquaval

    Name: Quaxwell

    Category: Practicing Pokémon

    Type: Water

    Height: 3’11” (1.2 m)

    Weight: 47.4 lbs. (21.5 kg)

    Ability: Torrent





    Serious and Stoic

    Quaxwell has a serious and stoic disposition, and it has a tendency to compete with others to see whose kicks are the most graceful. It makes sure to consistently practice the fundamentals of its training wherever and whenever it can, and it observes Pokémon and people from various regions to incorporate their movements into its own dance routines.

    Messy Hair Makes for a Weakened Mind and Body

    The hair on Quaxwell’s head has impact-absorbing properties, so whenever an attack is incoming, Quaxwell holds a low posture and takes the blow with its head. It feels mentally and physically unwell if its hair gets messed up, so it uses gel to fix its hair immediately after getting attacked.

    Name: Quaquaval

    Category: Dancer Pokémon

    Type: Water/Fighting

    Height: 5’11” (1.8 m)

    Weight: 136.5 lbs. (61.9 kg)

    Ability: Torrent






    It Slashes at Opponents with Its Decorative Water Feathers

    The strength of Quaquaval’s well-trained legs is incredible. With a light kick, this Pokémon can flip a truck. During battle, large decorative water feathers spray like a fountain from organs at the tips of its tail feathers, and it swings these water feathers around to slash through opponents like a water-jet cutter.

    Cheerful and Always Breaking Out into Dance…But It Still Has Its Stoicism

    Quaquaval is cheerful and energetic, and no matter the situation, it will shake its entire body in dances that evoke far-off places. On the other hand, it is very serious about consistently polishing its skills, and during critical moments, it shows a level of concentration that would amaze onlookers.

    What awaits in the depths of Area Zero?

    In the center of the Paldea region lies the Great Crater of Paldea. A strange place called Area Zero is spread out across this crater, and mysterious Pokémon that are barely seen outside of the Great Crater of Paldea call it home.

    Why do these undiscovered Pokémon live here? What awaits in the depths of Area Zero? You’ll have to uncover the truth on your adventure!
