Pokémon teases a spooky Scarlet & Violet reveal tomorrow with a jump-scare video

With Halloween and Pokémon Scarlet & Violet just around the corner, The Pokémon Company has teased a spooky ghost-type Pokémon reveal tomorrow at 2pm with a short in-universe video filmed on an un-named character’s Rotom Phone within the Paldea Region.

While the video itself shows nothing more than a Gengar scaring the bejesus out of the person recording, a premiere for another video to go live at 2pm BST tomorrow – currently titled simply “????” – will likely feature more details, and potentially a new Pokémon or two.

This week’s video is also eerily reminiscent of how Hisuian Zorua and Hisuian Zoroark were revealed for Pokémon Legends Arceus last year, with a found-footage video teasing their introduction ahead of an actual reveal. Whether this tease featuring Gengar will mean any specific Paldean Gengar relation – perhaps similar to Wiglett’s relation to Diglett – is being teased will remain to be seen, however.

When it goes live at 2pm tomorrow you can watch the next video below. We’ll be sure to bring you the full details on it throughout the afternoon tomorrow as well!
