Halloween Cup Pokémon GO is a new tournament for the Pokémon GO Battle League Season 4. Here are all of the details for the new Halloween Cup.

Halloween Cup Pokémon GO: Everything You Need to Know

The Halloween Cup will run from Oct. 27 until Nov. 3. The tournament features special rewards, like encounters with Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Charmander wearing Halloween costumes. It's unknown if the costumes are the same as last year's.

What makes the event Halloween? Only the spookiest Pokémon types will be usable here. The Halloween Cup allows only Poison, Ghost, Bug, Dark, and Fairy-type Pokémon. In addition, the event will be conducted with the Great League's 1,500 CP cap, which should lead to some fun and interesting team combinations.

Some Pokémon to consider for this event are Sableye, Alolan Marowak and Tokicroak. You'll want Pokémon that can cover a variety of the types allowed. Sableye and Alolan Marowak have good coverage while resisting most of the types allowed.

Toxicroak is a stand-out Pokémon here, as it can deal with both Fairy and Dark-type Pokémon. You just have to watch out for Psychic-type attacks, but otherwise, it will resist Bug, Dark, and Poison types.
