debuted in 1996. Since then, the series of games has enjoyed unflagging popularity. For the first one, 151 creatures were created. In subsequent editions, their list was expanded. After 26 years with the release of Pokemon Scarlet & Violet on November 18, the number of Pokemon increased to 1008 –
1000. Pokemon is Gholdengo
The thousandth number on the Pokemon list went to Gholdengo. Its name is an obvious reference to gold, which is the creature’s attribute. IGN thinks the Pokemon looks like a cereal character, but to me it looks more like giant inflatable balloons that bend and break in every direction when the wind blows them.
Gholdengo is the evolution of Gimmighoul, a ghost Pokemon that haunts treasure chests. To transform into the 1,000th Pokemon, players must collect 1,000 Gimmighoul Coins. According to the Pokedex (Pokemon database) entry, all of these make up Gholdengo’s body, which makes a lot of sense since his previous form is a spirit, so he doesn’t have a physical body.
