Pokemon Go returns with their annual Halloween celebration event with spooky spirits, ghastly ghouls, new research, and revolting raids!

From October 23rd at 6:00 PM (PST) to November 3rd at 6:00 PM (PST), there will be a greater influx of Ghost-type Pokemon like Gengar, Sableye, Yamask, and more! Some of them will be sporting adorably themed Halloween costumes. Galarian Yamask will makes its debut in Pokemon Go this year as well!
