Spooks, scares, and so much more await you during Pokémon Go’s 2020 Halloween event, which is live now along with all of its frightful festivities. 

Until Nov. 3, players will be able to encounter tons of Ghost-types, including Gengar and Sabelye with special costumes and Galarian Yamask, which will be appearing for the first time. Lost of Shiny Pokémon will also be up for grabs throughout the event. 

If you completed the Mega Buddy Challenge Timed Research from last month, you’ll have access to more exclusive Timed Research that will reward Gengar Mega Energy, which will help significantly since Mega Gengar has joined the Mega Raid pool.
