A new trailer has been released for Pokémon Scarlet & Violet. For the most part it recaps things we’ve already seen to the tune of Ed Sheeran’s Celestial (which is part of the soundtrack to the game), but near the end some brief shots of new Pokémon are seen. They bear a resemblance to Donphan, and according to the press release are known as Great Tusk and Iron Treads.
The two Pokémon are exclusive to Scarlet & Violet respectively, and are part of the Scarlet Book / Violet Book which are ancient tomes written about an expedition in the past.

Following on from yesterday’s addition to Pokémon GO, today a new trailer was released which confirms the Pokémon to be Gimmighoul. It is Ghost type and has two forms – Roaming Form, which is the one appearing in GO – and Chest Form, where it tries to get people to give it coins.
The Pokémon GO website also added an update, confirming that linking Scarlet/Violet with GO will allow catching the Roaming Form in GO, which can then be transferred (via HOME) to SV.

A new Pokémon has surfaced, following Dratini Community Day in Pokémon GO (which runs from 2-5pm on Saturday 5th). Yesterday its model was found in GO data and leaked by PokeMiners on Twitter.
At 5pm, this creature begins following the player around the map, however, it is not catchable (and may not be a real Pokémon, in the vein of Zygarde cells). Several PokéStops turn gold and many items can be acquired from them, including a ?????? Coin which is apparently from the Paldea region.
UPDATE: a new website chest.pokemon.com was unveiled by the Pokémon Twitter account. It has a treasure chest which updates periodically. As I discovered, it’s set to update at specific intervals, concluding at 24 hours and 999 coins (1pm GMT/6am PT), with something else happening an hour later at 2pm GMT/7am PT – possibly a new trailer!
