A new Pokemon named Poltchageist was just revealed by Pokemon in a promotional YouTube video.
It’s a Grass and Ghost-type Pokemon. Its Ability is a new one named Hospitality, where it heals a small amount of its ally’s HP when entering battle. It’s obviously related to the Polteageist line in some way. Its name appears to be based partly on “matcha” tea.
It will appear in the Scarlet & Violet DLC in the Kitakami region.
Poltchageist has a swirl pattern similar to the one that’s known to be Sinistea’s weak point. However, one thing that sets these species apart is that Poltchageist’s swirl is not its weak point.
After a target is sprinkled with some of Poltchageist’s powdery body or eats food dusted with it, Poltchageist drains their life-force and absorbs it as energy.
It Lives in Old Houses and May Even Patch Up Broken Tableware
Poltchageist has a liking for old houses and may make its home in them. By day it remains still in cool, dark places, but once the sun sets, it begins to prowl around towns and their outskirts.
It sometimes mends cracked or broken things. In homes where it’s taken up residence, Poltchageist may even take it upon itself to repair broken tableware and other objects.
