MYSTERY MASTERY

It looks like Niantic is getting ready for Halloween! This all-new event focuses on catching Pokémon, and by the way it got announced, more of these events will follow. While this Catch Mastery edition focuses on Ghost-type Pokémon, it’s very likely we see more of these events in the future, but featuring different Pokémon types of course.

Are you excited for this new type of event? Are you ready to get into the spooky season? Let us know in the comments and on Twitter! Stay safe and healthy, follow local guidelines, and remember to have fun!
