How to evolve Gimmighoul into Gholdengo in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

 

Okay, this one is going to take some work! When Gimmighoul was first revealed in Pokémon GO, his main mechanic was chasing you around the map looking for Golden Coins. It looks like Golden Coins will be the secret to evolve Gimmighoul in Scarlet and Violet as well, with the player tasked to collect 999 in total to trigger the transformation.

It’s still unclear what the best or fastest way to locate coins is, but come back to this guide in a little bit for updated info.
