Gimmighoul Coins are a type of material that drops off the Pokemon Gimmighoul when one is caught/defeated, or interacted with in the wild. The Gimmighoul Coins materials, when collected, is placed in your Bag under TM Materials > Gimmighoul Coins. You can view them at anytime to see what amount you have. The in-game description of the coins is:

“Material accidentally dropped by a Pokemon. It seems the Gimmighoul treasure and hoard these.”

The purpose of the Gimmighoul Coin is to help you evolve the Pokemon Gimmighoul into Gholdenego. To do this you need to collect 999 Gimmighoul Coins from different sources.

How to Get 999 Gimmighoul Coins?

To evolve Gimmighoul into Gholdenego you need to acquire 999 Gimmighoul coins. To collect these coins you have a number of different methods you can use in Paldea. Not every method to get coins is the most efficient. In fact most are fairly useless. With that said the methods of getting coins are as follows.

Collect Coins from Chest Form or Roaming Form

The Chest Form can be found on top of the 13 Watchtowers in Paldea and in other hard to reach locations. When the you find a Chest Form you can fight it. When one is defeated or caught the player receives a bundle of coins that can be anywhere from 50-80 coins.

The other form is Roaming Form. This form works a bit different than Chest Form as you don’t actually fight this Pokemon. Instead you simply interact with them, when found, to get 1-6 Gimmighoul Coins. This Pokemon appears all over including on things like rocksWatchtowerssigns, Pokemon Centers, Benches, and other random locations.

Pick Up Shiny Items

The last method of acquiring Gimmighoul Coins is picking up random shiny objects you encounter out in the world. This method is the least efficient as there is some randomness to it. If you are lucky you can get a bundle of coins in the 20ish range, but it varies in amount.

The best approach to reach 999 Gimmighoul Coins is to visit all of the 13 Watchtowers and collect the coins there. Once you’ve done that focus on the hard to reach locations in the game to find a few more of the Chest Forms. Doing this should easily get you the needed 999 Gimmighoul Coins.

What to do with Gimmighoul Coins?

Once you’ve collected all 999 required Gimmighoul Coins the next step is easy. Ensure you have a Gimmighoul in your party and then level up your Gimmighoul and it will evolve into Gholdengo. Gholdengo is #392 in your Pokedex. This Pokemon must be caught or traded for if you are going for full Pokedex completion.

Get Extra Coins from the Janitor

In the city of Medali in West Province (Area Three) there is an NPC that is a janitor. This NPC is located in the alleyway behind the amphitheater. When you speak to this NPC he mentions having found coins as he was cleaning. These coins are the extra coins you’ve collected above x999. This means you want to speak to him after spending your coins to see if he has any extra coins for you.
