TiMi Studio says players might not be able to get all of the prizes during Pokémon UNITE’s Halloween Festival

Rewards will be available, but how many and for how long?

Pokémon UNITE is about to launch its first seasonal event with the Halloween Festival, which will run from Oct. 20 to Nov. 7.

This event will be the game’s biggest update since the mobile version of UNITE launched last month, with new items, options, a balance patch, and the introduction of the Normal-type Greedent as a playable Pokémon—although there might be some limits to what players can earn.

A limited-time game mode called Halloween Night in Mer Stadium is being added too, which will replace a player’s Battle Items with Pumpkins that can be used to throw at your opponent’s Pokémon. And along with Greedent being added, Holowear for Charizard, Wigglytuff, Zeraora, and Lucario will also be available. 

Even though all of this content is being added, and multiple pieces of it are being offered as free rewards for participating in the event, including Greedent’s Unite License, TiMi Studio has warned players that not everyone will be able to collect everything before the event ends. 

No further clarification was added, but this could mean players will only be able to earn a select number of items, or there are a lot of rewards available and they will require a lot of playtime to collect. Either way, the developers have told fans to “choose your rewards carefully.”

You will have until Nov. 7 to earn as many rewards as possible before the UNITE Halloween Festival concludes and many of those perks vanish into the night.

Update Oct. 20 2:20am CT: Now that the Halloween Festival event is live, it is clear that TiMi was referencing the pumpkins players can earn by participating in battles, logging in daily, and completing challenges.

These pumpkins act as a currency that can be exchanged for a limited number of items, including a Greedent Unite License and some customization items. There are a limited number of pumpkins that you can earn, so you might just want to ignore the Greedent option since you can always unlock it with normal in-game currency after the event.
