This Halloween, Ghost-types are in the spotlight in Pokemon GO. Of every spooky Pokemon in the game’s large roster, which ones are the best?

Ghost-types in Pokemon games are often some of the strongest monsters out there, boasting crazy special-attack stats and serving as the counter for quite a few types. To commemorate these spooky Pokemon, the ongoing Halloween event in Pokemon GO features some of most powerful Ghost-types in the game, allowing players a shot to get these monsters for their team.

Best Ghost Type Pokemon in Pokemon GO

The following are regarded as some of the best Ghost-type Pokemon in the game:

  • Gengar
  • Giratina
  • Chandelure
  • Hoopa
  • Mismagius
  • Banette
  • Trevenant
  • Dusknoir

Quite a few of the aforementioned Pokemon dominate the game’s tier list, with Giratina being a go-to for many Legendary and Mega Raids. Gengar is a Pokemon that’s fit for almost any situation, and it’s a Pokemon that’s always terrifying to see on the field, especially when it Mega Evolves.

The best part of these Pokemon is that most of their pre-evolution forms are appearing more frequently in the wild in this Halloween event. Pokemon like Gastly, Misdreavus, and Shuppet are a few of the event’s featured monsters, and even Giratina is the focus for Legendary Raids in this event. There’s no better time to grind and capture as many as these Pokemon as possible than now.

The Halloween Event is scheduled to run from Oct. 15 to Oct. 31.
