A NEW POKÉMON DISCOVERED IN PALDEA—GREAVARD, THE LOVABLE SUBSURFACE LURKER—HAS BEEN REVEALED!
A paranormal occurrence was caught on camera and teased this week on the official Pokémon social channels, and now its cause has been unearthed! This week, the Pokémon Company International introduced a lovable new Pokémon found in the Paldea region of the Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet games: Greavard, the Ghost Dog Pokémon! Greavard Normally, Greavard barely moves, resting peacefully underground. It pokes the topmost part of its head above ground and lights an eerie glow at its tip, then waits for someone to approach.

Of all the Pokémon residing in the Paldea […]Continue reading
