Creepy Pokémon Countdown gets spookier one last time with Phantump for Halloween 2017

Pokémon come in all shapes and sizes…and especially demeanors. Some Pokémon are friendly and cuddly. Some Pokémon are bold and brave. And some Pokémon strike fear into the hearts of every creature that gets in their way! Don’t take our word for it—you can find out just how sinister these Pokémon are by looking them up in your in-game Pokédex. Now that it’s Halloween season, The Pokémon Company is shining the flashlight on these creepy Pokémon throughout the month of October. Every day, it will be revealing its picks for the most eerie and frightening Pokémon, and sharing a quote from the Pokédex that supports their delightfully terrifying reputation.
