Pokémon Go Halloween Event Is Legendarily Spooky

When your license has a character-type dedicated solely to Ghosts, it would be really strange if you didn't take part in Halloween festivities. Niantic is making sure to answer the call with a new Halloween event for Pokémon Go, which can earn you a legendary Pokémon and new fourth-generation Pokémon to catch.

The legendary for the event is Giratina, a Ghost/Dragon Pokémon that emblazoned the cover of Pokémon Platinum back in 2009. The legendary dragon who you might best remember for being a menace in the most recent Super Smash Bros. is available during raid battles until November 20, at which point it fades into the ether.

Non-legendary Pokémon for this event focuses on Ghost- and Dark-types including Stunky and one of my personal favorites Drifloon, couched around a story event of strange occurrences happening at Professor Willow's lab. Seriously, just look at Drifloon's Pokédex entry.

"Stories go that it grabs the hands of small children and drags them away to the afterlife. It dislikes heavy children."

Now you can get justice for all the missing children by catching a Drifloon of your own. The Pokémon Go Halloween event runs from October 23 to November 1, with Giratina being a raid legendary until November 20.
