Halloween Research Pokemon Go
Here's every major feature of the 2019 Halloween Event:
Costumed Pokemon: Like the floppy hat Pikachu or Santa hat Pikachu seen during the summer and Christmas events, the three Kanto starters will sport their own costumes. Bulbasaur will be dressed as a Shedinja, Charmander as a Cubone, and Squirtle as a Yamask. Pikachu will be dressed as a Mimikyu, a Pokemon known for dressing as Pikachu.
Shiny Yamask and Cofagrigus: As more Unova Pokemon have been introduced into the game, this month will increase the shiny encounter rates of two of the spookiest Pokemon in Generation 5: Yamask and Cofagrigus.
Shadow Pokemon: Team Go Rocket is back, and will feature these 14 new shadow Pokemon: Weedle, Kakuna, Beedrill, Electabuzz, Magmar, Lapras, Mareep, Seedot, Nuzleaf, Sableye, Trapinch, Cacnea, Shuppet and Duskull
Darkrai Raids: For the first time ever, Darkrai, the Pitch-Black Pokemon, will appear as a legendary raid boss. As a pure dark type, Darkrai is weak to fairy, fighting, and bug pokemon.
