Pokemon GO Ghost event is one of the unique features to be found in the Halloween 2020 event programming.

Niantic Labs' Halloween event this year is shaping up to be full of tricks and treats. From Oct. 23 to Nov. 3 at 9 p.m., trainers can enjoy double candy for all candy mechanics, exclusive timed research tasks, new shiny Pokemon, and more. In fact, some may find themselves taking part in even more "firsts" this year with all-new side-quests.

After all, what better time to master ghost-types than the scariest holiday of the year?

Pokemon GO Catch Mastery Ghost

Trainers can take part in the Catch: Mastery Ghost day event on Oct. 25 from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. This is the first event of its kind in Pokemon GO history with the goal of putting a trainer's catching skills to the ultimate test.

Drifloon will be appearing more frequently during the event with a chance to be shiny. Trainers can also complete timed research tasks and event-exclusive research to encounter other ghost-types. Some may even earn a bit of Mega Gengar energy. Additionally, those skilled enough to perform special throws will earn a bit of extra EXP for their effort.

More information about this side event can be found on the official Pokemon GO news blog.
