Greavard is a Pure Ghost-Type in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

Greavard is a Pure Ghost-Type in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

Not long after the new ghost Pokemon made its debut in a Pokemon Scarlet and Violet video, Nintendo shared additional trailer and details for the dog-like buddy now dubbed Greavard. It is a pure ghost-type that is known for being friendly and (unintentionally) dangerous.

Greavard is about the same size as an actual dog, as the Pokemon’s details confirm it is about two feet tall and weighs around 77 lbs. It knows the Pickup ability, which means it might pick up items both in and out of battles. Nintendo didn’t share any signature moves for it yet, but it did note that the “Ghost Dog Pokemon” is known for its “powerful jaws” and ability to “absorb life-force” just by being around someone.

In the wild, you might not initially see a Greavard roaming around. Rather, you’ll only see the candle on the top of its head peeking above the ground. If you get too close, then it will appear.

Here’s the new Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Greavard trailer.

The initial video revealing the character showed how it might inadvertently harm someone nearby. A person is filming ghost-type Pokemon and happens upon the character. As the two play fetch, the person filming’s life-force is gradually zapped away.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will come to the Nintendo Switch on November 18, 2022.
