Pokemon Go Halloween Mischief event 2021
We are now counting down to the October Pokemon Go Halloween event. We are still celebrating the 5th anniversary of the game, so we expect this Halloween event to be the most memorable!
2021 Halloween event in Pokemon Go
The Pokemon Go Halloween events are some of the best in the year. 2021’s will be no exception. The event will be split into two sections and include a variety of new Pokemon, new raid bosses, and continuation of Hoopa’s special research. As with other 5th anniversary events this year, the event will also feature a haunting new song in-game. Make sure you turn your game off to enjoy the haunting Lavender Town remix.

New Pokemon for Halloween 2021
This year’s Pokemon Go event will see a selection of cute – and appropriately haunting – Pokemon introduced to Pokemon Go.
Creepy Companions will be the first part of the evolution. Galarian Slowpoke can finally evolve into the magic-looking Hexpert Pokémon .
Galarian Slowpoke evolution requirements
You can prepare for evolution now if you already have a Galarian Slowpoke. Slowpoke can be your friend and you can go on adventures together to catch 30 poison-type Pokemon. This will make it easier and faster to do, but you can still find the occasional Gulpin and Koffing in the wild. If you’re hoping to catch a bigger fish, the Slowpoke must be your friend when you complete the requirements. If you are looking for a stronger catch, wait until the event starts and then try your luck in 1-star raids with Galarian Slowpoke. You will need 50 Slowpoke candy to meet the 30 poison-type Pokemon requirements. Even though the evolution will not take place during the first half of the event you can still evolve your Galarian Slowpoke once the event is over.
Pumpkaboo and Gourgeist
Pumpkaboo will be appearing in the wild starting October 22nd. A new game mechanic will be introduced by the adorable Pumpkin Pokemon. Pumpkaboo will bring different sizes of sprites to the game. The bigger the Pumpkaboo, it will look in-game. In the wild, large and super-sized Pumpkaboos are more rare.
Gourgeists will not be seen in the wild, but you can transform your Pumpkaboos to Gourgeists. You can also find average-sized Pumpkaboos in one-star raids.
A new Collection Challenge will celebrate the new game mechanic. You will be asked to collect Pumpkaboo in all sizes.
Trevenant and Phantump
Pumpkaboo is joined by the adorable Phantump. (I thought these guys were meant to be frightening, not cute!) The wild and one-star raids will see Phantump also appearing. The Elder Tree Pokemon Trevenant can be created from Phantump.
Halloween Costumed Pokemon
You will receive new costumes for your Pokemon, just like in past Halloween events. These Pokemon are brand new for this year’s Halloween Mischief event. Three Pokemon will be in the game wearing Halloween Mischief hats. These are Drifblim and Piplup, and you may be able to see them in shiny form if you’re fortunate!
Hoopa Misunderstood Mischief special research
Hoopa is still having trouble with the Misunderstood Mischief research special. Now is the perfect time to make it reappear. A spooky Halloween event will feature Mischief in its own title! You’ll start at step 8 if you’re up-to-date with the research tasks. Step 9 will relaunch the research on October 15th. Players will be granted special access to an in-game event once they have completed the Season of Mischief storyline.
