Halloween 2021 Event Part Two Begins In Pokémon GO

The second half of the Halloween 2021 Event will begin today in Pokémon GO. While the first half introduced Shiny Spinarak and three new costumed Pokémon, the second part will introduce four entirely new species to the game: Pumpkaboo, Phantump, and their respective evolutions. Let's get into the details of what will be available for this exciting culmination of Niantic's fan-favorite event.

  • New Pokémon: Phantump, Trevenant (the evolution of Phantump), Pumpkaboo, Gourgeist (the evolution of Pumpkaboo)

    • Small Size
    • Average Size
    • Large Size
    • Super Size (don't tell Spurlock)
  • Collection Challenge: Pokémon GO players will be tasked with collecting Pumpkaboo's sizes, which makes me think that these will appear as similar to Formes in the Dex.
