ENTIRE EVENT FEATURES

Well Trainers, from what we’ve learned from the announcement, this event will be two parts each with their own special features. However, there will be some features you can enjoy the entirety of the event, and here’s what they are:

SEASON OF MISCHIEF STORY (SEASONAL RESEARCH)

During the event, the Season of Mischief Special Research storyline will continue. Remember, you will need to complete this special research in order to gain access to the special event at the end of the Season which might have something to do with Hoopa.

HALLOWEEN CUP

The Halloween Cup will be available in the GO Battle League!

SPECIAL & TIMED RESEARCH

What Lies beneath the Mask?—will be available! Ghost-type Pokémon are appearing more often than usual, and Professor Willow has tasked you with learning more about them. Notably, Yamask has started appearing in the wild, prompting his interest in learning more about Ghost-type Pokémon related to masks. What can we learn about these Pokémon—and what can we learn about ourselves in the process?

Timed Research will be available with tasks focused on participating in the Halloween Cup in the GO Battle League.

EVENT BONUSES

Ready your sweet tooth, per the usual, this Halloween event will feature the bonuses covered in candy! 2x Catch Candy, 2x Transfer Candy, and 2x Hatch Candy will be activated! Stay tuned for our Halloween 2021 Event Infopedia that will have all the numbers you need to calculate your candy haul!
