  • Halloween themed special investigation

It’s almost Halloween, and Pokemon GO is gearing up for a big celebration with its two-part Halloween 2022 event. Mega Banette will make its debut during the first part of the event. Details on the second part of the event have yet to be revealed, but Halloween 2022 Part I is packed with themed goodies to keep trainers busy in the meantime.

In addition to Pokemon GOs typical encounters, raids and investigative tasks, the Halloween celebration in 2022 will feature some festive environmental changes. PokéStops and Gyms will be decorated, and a remix of the infamously creepy Lavender Town theme will be played every night of the event. Ghost-Type Pokémon will also appear more frequently during the event, continuing this horrific trend after Pokémon GO’s Litwick Community Day on October 15.

The Pokemon GO Halloween 2022 Part 1 event will take place from Thursday, October 20 through Thursday, October 27. This spooky party begins and ends at 10 a.m. local time, but it’s unclear exactly when the second part of the event will begin. It looks like Halloween 2022 will last until November 1 based on the event’s special research deadlines, but this date has yet to be officially confirmed.

Event Bonuses

  • 2x Candy to Catch, Hatch and Transfer Pokémon
  • Trainers at level 31 or above are guaranteed to receive one Candy XL when they walk with their Buddy Pokémon

Halloween themed special investigation

Pokemon GOs Halloween-themed special research is available at no charge from Thursday, October 20 at 10 a.m. to Tuesday, November 1, at 10 a.m. (local time). Yamask and Galarian Yamask are in the research spotlight this season, and Shiny Galarian Yamask will make its first in-game appearance during the event. Lucky trainers can encounter one while completing the Halloween 2022 special research tasks in Pokemon GO.

There will also be two unique Timed Research tickets for sale during the Pokemon GO Halloween 2022 event. Timed research tasks featuring Yamask and Galarian Yamask can be unlocked with the $1 ticket, and the $5 ticket offers increased Candy bonuses, additional Halloween tasks, and a special avatar pose. Players can purchase both tickets for themselves or for a great friend on their friends list, but the tasks and rewards will expire on November 1 if they are not claimed before the end of the event.
