To help Pokémon GO players celebrate the spookiest month of the year, the game's developer, Niantic, has introduced several new features. One of those additions comes in the form of new Shadow Pokémon. Here's the full list of Shadow Pokémon set to turn up starting Thursday.

  • Weedle
  • Kakuna
  • Beedrill
  • Electabuzz
  • Magmar
  • Lapras
  • Mareep
  • Seedot
  • Nuzleaf
  • Sableye
  • Trapinch
  • Cacnea
  • Shuppet
  • Duskull

Players are already seeing the effects of these new Shadow Pokémon, even if they can't catch them yet. Because of the changes to the game's code necessitated by these new Shadow Pokémon, players are seeing those Pokémon as silhouettes even if they've already caught them. Catching them again should solve the problem.
