Pokemon Go Halloween Mischief 2021 Part 2 Ghoulish Pals

Halloween is one of the most exciting events in Pokemon Go, and players can enjoy many rewards, many bonuses, and shiny Pokemon encounters. This year, the Halloween event is divided into two parts. The first part is named Halloween Mischief Part 1 Creepy Companions, while the second is Halloween Part 2 Ghoulish Pals.

As you might have guessed from the title, during the second part of the Halloween 2021 Pokemon Go event we will have more encounters with Ghost-type Pokemon.

First, we will start by announcing two new Pokemon debuts, Pumpkaboo and Phantump. The best part of these debuts is that their evolutions Gourgeist and Trevenant will be joining the game as well. Pumpkaboo, its evolution Gourgeist and Phamtump and its evolution Trevenant will vary in size, just like in the Kalos region.

Kalos experts may recall that Pumpkaboo comes in a variety of sizes, which serves as the inspiration for a creepy Collection Challenge that encourages you to collect Pumpkaboo both large and small. Also, there will be a new step of the Season of Mischief Special Research Story.

As we mentioned above, Pumpkaboo, Phantump and their evolutions will vary in size, which means the larger ones in size will appear larger on the game map too. The Collection Challenge will also feature these Pokemon in several sizes.

Every event has its own increased wild spawns, so this Halloween, we will see more of the following Pokemon:

  • Halloween Mischief Pikachu (plus Shiny)
  • Gastly (plus Shiny)

Regarding Raids, we will have a debut of a new Mega Pokemon, which is Mega Absol. This beast and its Shiny form will be the new Mega Raid Boss.

Murkrow (plus Shiny form), Yamask (plus Shiny form), Galarian Yamask. Phantump and Average Size Pumpkaboo will appear in one-star Raids.

In three-star Raids, there will be Alolan Marowak (plus Shiny form), Banette, Halloween Mischief Drifblim (plus Shiny form) and Lampent. Just like Part 1, we will have an old-new five-star Raid Boss, and that Boss is Darkrai, and during the Halloween period, it will know Sludge Bomb move.

To celebrate the new Mega Raid Boss and the Halloween spirit, there will be a Halloween Mischief Special Raid Weekend starting from Saturday, October 30th, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. and it will end on Sunday, October 31st, 2021, at 8:00 p.m. local time.

  • Shuppet (plus Shiny form)
  • Duskull (plus Shiny form)

Because this event is separated into two parts, several features will be available during both parts, which are the following.

There will be a special Halloween Cup available in the GO Battle League with Halloween Mischief Drifblim featured as a possible encounter, and to motivate Trainers to participate in the Halloween Cup, Niantic will release a Timed Research focused on participating in the Halloween Cup in the GO Battle League.

“What Lies Beneath the Mask?” the new Special Research story will be named, and we will learn more about the Ghost-type Pokemon, how they function and how they behave. To make us more curious about Ghost-type Pokemon, Yamask will be visiting us in the wild more often.

For this event, the bonuses will be the following:

  • 2x Transfer Candy
  • 2x Catch Candy
  • 2x Hatch Candy
  • Guaranteed Candy XL while walking with your buddy.

During the in-game nighttime, if you turn on your sound, you will hear a remix of Lavender Town, a sound that signifies the spooky and scary season.

The new Costumed Pokemon will be Halloween Mischief Pikachu (plus Shiny), Halloween Mischief Piplup (plus Shiny) and Halloween Mischief Drifblim (plus Shiny).
