Pokemon Scarlet and Violet introduces the Ghost Dog Pokemon Greavard

Nintendo and The Pokemon Company International have released a new trailer for Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet, revealing the new Ghost Dog Pokemon Greavard.

You can find the trailer detailing the new poltergeist pup and some details below, via The Pokemon Company.

Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet are set to launch on November 18 for Nintendo Switch.  Just in case you missed it, a recent 14-minute-long trailer showcased the lives of four different Pokemon Trainers and gave a quick overview of some of what players can expect with the game's full release.

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!

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. When a person draws near, Greavard jumps out of the ground while letting out a spooky cry that would startle most unsuspecting people—though it doesn’t appear to do this with ill intent.

Greavard has such a friendly and affectionate personality that paying it even the slightest bit of attention will make it so overjoyed that it will follow Trainers wherever they go. Of all the Pokémon residing in the Paldea region, it is known to be especially easy to befriend.

However, Greavard will slowly and inadvertently absorb the life-force of those around it, so it’s best not to play with it too much. What’s more, it also has powerful jaws that can shatter bones. A single bite from Greavard can be grievous—so Trainers are advised to approach it with caution.
