Pokémon GO Halloween 2020 has a ton of events for you to participate in. Here's everything you can do in Pokémon GO for Halloween 2020.

For the month of October, there will be a special Research where Shedinja will be the reward. Two spooky Ghost Pokémon, Duskull and Shuppet, will be appearing in Spotlight Hours in the second half of October.

The Halloween Event will also have a special Battle League event, the Halloween Cup. From October 26 to November 3, you'll be able to battle in a Great League event where you can only use Poison, Ghost, Bug, Dark and Fairy type Pokémon. The rewards for this event will be Bulbasaur, Squirtle and Charmander in Halloween costumes.

You'll also be able to grab new Avatar cosmetics as we get closer to Halloween.

The details for the main annual Halloween event have yet to be released, but there will be a special Raid event to coincide with it. The details for the Raid are also unknown currently. Last year, we got Yamask's debut and Darkrai in Raids, so we could expect a new Pokémon to debut this year as well.

There aren't many eligible Pokémon that fit the bill for a Halloween special. Munna and Zorua could easily fit the Halloween theme, and we haven't seen them or their evolved forms Musharna or Zoroark in Pokémon GO yet.
