Pokemon Scarlet & Violet’s Pokedex might be about to grow by another one or two, as players are convinced ghost-types will be announced after a scary teaser.
Trainers around the world have been waiting for the Paldea region‘s doors to open for some time now, and their wish will be granted on November 18.
Before its release date, though, a fresh set of starters, Legendaries, and returning Pokemon have already been confirmed or leaked ahead of time.
Next up, in the spirit of Halloween, it looks like a few ghost-types are about to finally see the light of day.
Ghost-type Pokemon reveal coming soon?
On October 24, the official YouTube channel of The Pokemon Company released a terrifying teaser that featured just one monster.
A voice in the clip said: “Am I recording? OK, good…” They turned to their side, scared of rustling in the long grass. “Are there really ghost-type Poke…”
Suddenly, a Pokemon dived out of the bushes – and it was a familiar sight, Gengar!
The camera tape soon crashed as the evolution of Haunter appeared on-screen, though many have been left wondering why this type of teaser trailer would be released if it was only going to show something from Gen 1.
