The Halloween event started on October 23 and will end on November 1. During this period, players will earn 2x catch candy, see increase spawn rate of Ghost/Dark Pokemon and catch more shiny Pokemon.

There are five Halloween Field Research tasks at the moment (it might change) and for each successfully finished task, players will get a reward.

Pokemon Go Halloween Field Research Tasks and Rewards

  • Catch 5 Dark-type Pokemon – 500 Stardust
  • Catch  Ghost-type Pokemon – Sableye
  • Evolve 3 Duskull or Shuppet – 1 Rare Candy

In addition, and probably the most exciting news regarding this event is the Special Research a.k.a. A Spooky Message. There are three stages and completing tasks in each stage will grant you a reward.

Pokemon Go Halloween Special Research Tasks and Rewards

A Spooky Message Stage 1

  • Catch 10 Ghost Type Pokemon – Duskull
  • Make 8 Great Throws – 1080 XP
  • Use 108 Berries to catch Pokemon – Lickitung

Finishing these tasks will also grant you

  • x10 PokeBalls
  • x1080 Stardust
  • x8 Silver Pinap Berry

Just a tip for those who have more Berries than PokeBalls – the ‘Use 108 Berries’ task can be completed by only throwing berries to a Pokemon, meaning you don’t have to waste PokeBalls and catch it. You’ll be needing those PokeBalls for the next stage, so saving them is a smart option.

A Spooky Message Stage 2

  • Catch 10 Dark Type Pokemon – Misdreavus
  • Spin 8 PokeStops you haven’t visited before – 1080 XP
  • Catch 108 Pokemon – Spiritomb (This is the task I mentioned above – PokeBalls is all you need)

Finishing these quests will grant you the same rewards as Stage 1:

  • x10 PokeBalls
  • x1080 Stardust
  • x8 Silver Pinap Berry

A Spooky Message Stage 3

This is the final stage in which players will receive extra XP, Spiritomb candy and Stardust

  • Claiming the three stages will grant you 3×1080 XP = 3,240 XP
  • X10 Spiritomb Candy
  • X8 Spiritomb Candy
  • X1080 Stardust

Good luck with your mission and I hope you will complete all task and earn the rewards!
