An entry in the Pokédex of the 9th generation serves as a "Chekhov's Gun" for the upcoming DLC of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Glimmora's unique combination of Rock/Poison type and its usage by Pokémon Champion Geeta make it a Pokémon of great interest in the DLC of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
Glimmora's Pokédex entry suggests a connection to terastallization, with its petals being compared to Tera Jewels.
The second half of the DLC and the introduction of the legendary Pokémon Terapagos in the Indigo Disc could further explore the secrets of terastallization and potentially provide more information about Glimmora's connection to the phenomenon.
With the release of the first half of the DLC for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, and the high expectations surrounding the second half where the story unveils the mystery of Area Null, a Pokémon from the 9th generation could also be examined more closely after its Pokédex entry hints at deeper connections. Alongside the Ultra Beast Nihilego, the introduction of Glimmet and its evolution Glimmora stood out among the new Pokémon of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet due to their unusual Rock/Poison type combination. Together with its distinctive move and ability, as well as its usage by the Pokémon Champion Geeta, Glimmora appears to have been positioned as a Pokémon of significant interest.
Although Glimmet and Glimmora can be found in the latest Scarlet and Violet DLC, the games have not yet addressed how this unique Pokémon line is connected to Area Null and the phenomenon of Terastallization. Various hints suggest a relationship between the two Pokémon and the battle mechanics of Scarlet and Violet, particularly the violet Pokédex entry of Glimmora. With this mysterious Pokédex entry and the upcoming release of the Indigo Disc later this year, there may be even more to discover regarding this 9th generation Pokémon line, which could potentially tie into the hidden treasure of Area Null.
Glimmora's Terastallization Connection Teased in Pokemon Violet
Between the Pokédex entries of Scarlet and Violet, which hint at hidden details, it is Violet's entry for Glimmora that specifically mentions the Pokémon's petals being recently compared to Tera Jewels, which are formed as part of the Terastallization process. This alone could have been a coincidence and could even be related to the same ideas of convergent evolution that Scarlet and Violet also explore, where nature repeats itself. However, since Glimmora only appeared in the wild in Area Null prior to the Teal Mask DLC, this connection between it and Terastallization is becoming increasingly stronger.
For instance, in addition to exploring the Glimmora population in Area Null, further clues can be found by delving into this idea. While the recurring six-pointed star, as seen in Terastallization, seems to align with Glimmora's own six-pointed petal design, the recently revealed Terapagos and the nineteenth Tera type, with their hexagonal imagery, also contribute to this. Furthermore, Glimmora has now also appeared in the wild in The Teal Mask near the Crystal Pool, and since the Pokédex categorizes both Glimmet and Glimmora as ore Pokémon, there is ample evidence to suggest that this particular Pokémon line has a direct, intrinsic connection to Terastallization that has yet to be explained.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet's DLC Should Reveal More About Terastallization
In contrast to the Paradox Pokémon roaming around Area Null, Glimmora's relationship to this mysterious place could come down to one of two possibilities: either its appearance has evolved due to the nearby Tera Jewels, or the Pokémon is directly descended from the Tera Jewels themselves. Since the Pokémon has now appeared outside of Area Null, the most likely explanation seems to be the latter, suggesting that Glimmet and Glimmora are Pokémon that have originated from the Terastall phenomenon. However, without official confirmation, the connection between the Glimmet line and Terastallization, as well as Area Null, remains purely speculative.
With another part of the Scarlet and Violet DLC still to come, there is hope that players will continue to have the opportunity to learn more about Terastallization and Glimmora itself. It may also be promising that the Indigo Disc will introduce the legendary Pokémon Terapagos, which has its own peculiar connections to Terastallization and suggests that the second DLC is already planning to further explore these mysteries. While it would be unlikely for Glimmora to take center stage in this case, the DLC should at least provide background knowledge or storylines to confirm its connections to Terastallization.
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are now available for Nintendo Switch.
