Spooky Festival Costumes Debut in Part 2 of the Pokémon GO Halloween 2022 Event

Get festive with Pokémon in Spooky Festival costumes, exciting research, and more.

The second part of Pokémon GO’s Halloween 2022 Event is serving up plenty of treats with several Pokémon debuting Spooky Festival costumes through November 1, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. local time. Keep an eye out for Vulpix, Ninetales, Gengar, Pumpkaboo, and Gourgeist wearing their spooky finest.

Event bonuses from the first part of the event will remain in effect, including double Candy for catching, hatching, and transferring Pokémon. Trainers above level 31 will continue to receive one guaranteed Candy XL when walking with their buddy. Make like the boogeyman and dance to a remix of the music of Lavender Town, which will continue to play at night.

There’s nothing scarier than the unknown, so help Professor Willow and Rhi with Halloween-themed Special Research to learn more about Yamask and Galarian Yamask. You may even encounter Shiny Galarian Yamask for the first time in Pokémon GO—if you’re lucky! Trainers have until the event ends to claim their Special Research.

Two different sets of Timed Research tasks are also available for purchase. For US$1.00*, Trainers can purchase a ticket offering encounters with Yamask as a research reward. Tickets are also available for US$5.00* that feature increased Candy bonuses, additional Halloween-themed tasks, and an avatar item.

For a full list of Pokémon that will be appearing in the wild, in raids, and as research rewards during Part 2 of the Pokémon GO Halloween 2022 Event, visit the official Niantic Pokémon GO blog.

Bump up the volume on your phone and start catching, Trainers!
