You can read the announcement below:

Today, The Pokémon Company International announced the discovery of a new Pokémon: Poltchageist!

This Pokémon was discovered in the land Kitakami, the setting for The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero Part 1: The Teal Mask DLC for the Pokémon Scarlet or Pokémon Violet video games that launches exclusively on the Nintendo Switch family of systems on September 13, 2023. Poltchageist was featured in a new cinematic trailer that can be viewed here.

Poltchageist has a swirl pattern not unlike Sinistea’s—but unlike Sinistea, its swirl is not a weakness. 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.​

Category: Matcha Pokémon
Type: Grass/Ghost
Height: 4″
Weight: 2.4 lbs.
Ability: Hospitality

Poltchageist takes up residence in old houses where it is sometimes known to patch up broken objects. Its Ability, Hospitality, allows Poltchageist to restore a small amount of its ally’s HP when it enters a battle.

Poltchageist can be captured on the Kitakami area, the setting for The Teal Mask DLC.

The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero Part 1: The Teal Mask will be available September 13, 2023. Pokémon Scarlet/Violet is available on Nintendo Switch.
