The Season of Mischief continues

A new part of the year-round special research will be unlocked during each part of the Pokémon GO Halloween Mischief Event. The story behind the Season of Mischief continues, and more is revealed in the Research Assignments and Misunderstood Mischief Rewards.

Completing this season’s Special Research Story will give you access to a special event at the end of the season that may have something to do with Hoopa!

With more Clairvoyant-, ghost-, and Dark– Pokémon that appear in the wild – along with new ones first discovered in Pokémon GO – this is the perfect opportunity to learn more about the Mischievous Pokémon!

Halloween Cup

The Halloween Cup will be available in the GO Battle League Season 9

  • Pokémon must have at least 1,500 CP to participate.
  • Just Poison, insect, ghost, Dark, and fairy Pokémon of the type are allowed.

Special and timed research

  • A special research story – What’s under the mask? – will be available! Ghost-type Pokémon are popping up more frequently than usual, and Professor Willow has asked you to learn more about them. Notably, Yamask is showing up in the wild, which has piqued his interest in learning more about Ghost-type Pokémon that have to do with masks. What can we learn about these Pokémon – and what can we learn about ourselves in the process?
  • Time-controlled research will be available with tasks focused on participating in the Halloween Cup in the GO Battle League.
