Trainers, it’s that time of the year again. Halloween is just around the corner, and you know Pokémon GO is never one to miss out on the festivities. This year, Niantic is slicing the event into two thrilling parts. The first part starts rolling on Thursday, October 19, 2023, at 10:00 a.m. and goes until the next Thursday, October 26, at the same time. And don’t worry, Part 2 picks up right where Part 1 leaves off, going all the way until Halloween night, October 31, at 8:00 p.m. local time.
Now, what’s cooking for Part 1? Well, prepare to see Greavard and get ready for the debut of Shiny Phantump. On top of that, we’ve got different Timed Research storylines coming your way. There are four types of Timed Research this time: one that’s free, one paid – Eerie Echoes Timed Research, the Spiritiomb Limited Research, and the last one that’s a part of the Ticket of Treats.
For a mere $5.00, or the equivalent in your local currency, you unlock the Eerie Echoes exclusive Timed Research adventure. What’s the catch? You get the chance to encounter spooktacular Ghost-types like Phantump and mischievous Dark-types like Alolan Meowth. And hey, you also get a Halloween-themed avatar Ghost Pose.

Just a couple of heads-ups though. First, you gotta complete this Timed Research by Tuesday, October 31, 2023, at 8:00 p.m. local time, or else it vanishes like a ghost. Second, you can share the scares by gifting Timed Research tickets to any Pokémon GO buddies you’re ‘Great Friends’ with. But be warned, there are no refunds, so choose wisely.
