Pokemon GO Celebrates Halloween With Impressive Event

Halloween is finally here folks, and for Pokemon GO fans who are up for celebrating on this day, well, get ready to catch-em-all. If you’re playing the game right now, then chances are you’ve realized that Pokemon Go’s Halloween 2018 event is active.

Yes, that date is today, but that is not stopping the Pokemon Company from getting in on the fun. With this new and interesting event, fans will receive a new Raid boss and a quest known as Spooky Message Special Research.

However, when compared to Halloween events from the past, there are quite a few similarities. You see, if you’re hoping to go on some Field Research quests, then no problem, bud. Just visit PokeStops in and around your area to obtain these quests.

For those who are wondering, these quests and Ghost or Dark-type themed as to represent the feel of Halloween. Furthermore, the game will have players hunting Pokemon creatures such as Poochyena or Houndour.

Interestingly enough, the quests are not as numerous as previously thought, therefore, fans should have no problem running through them with some ease.

Here are the things players are required to accomplish during the Halloween 2018 event:

  • Catch {0} Poochyena or Houndour
  • Catch {0} Dark-type Pokémon
  • Catch {0} Ghost-type Pokémon
  • Evolve {0} Duskull or Shuppet
  • Transfer {0} Pokémon

Defeat Giratina

OK, so this event will give players the option to fight the powerful Pokemon, Giratina in a Raid battle. Bear in mind that this is a Ghost/Dragon-type legendary Pokemon, so as you might have guessed already, it’s going to be a tough battle.

If you want to beat Giratina, then we recommend using the following team of Pokemon:

  • Rayquaza
  • Dragonite
  • Salamence
  • Latios
  • Mewtwo
  • Gengar
  • Tyranitar

We know it’s difficult to get your hands on all members of this team at once, but even if you only have a few, the battle should be interesting. Also, make sure these creatures have the best move sets because pure power is nothing without skill.

To gain the most fun out of this event, we suggest fans to wear their favorite costumes while playing the game in and around the neighborhoods. Additionally, it would make perfect sense to travel with a friend or join a group because we’re coming up to the Christmas season, which means, robbers are on the prowl.

Also, do not travel to areas you’re not comfortable with just to catch a Pokemon. It’s just not worth it, so stay within the walls of your comfort instead of climbing a mountain too large for your tiny legs.
