Once you link your Pokémon GO account to a Nintendo Switch copy of the new games through Pokémon Home, you will be able to catch an exclusive variant of a ghost-type Pokémon: Roaming Form Gimmighoul. Though the details are not confirmed, it is believed that you can catch it by spinning gold PokéStops. It's not guaranteed that you will unlock Gimmighoul as PokéStops have a chance of also dropping gold coins and other rewards like Max Revives.
Roaming Form Gimmighoul will only be able in Pokémon GO but there is a possibility that it will be transferrable to Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet via Pokémon Home.
You can check out Gimmighoul in the video below.
