It’s spooky season in Pokemon GO, and Yamask is one of the featured Pokemon this time around. Here’s a guide to completing it’s special research story: “What Lies Beneath the Mask?”

Yamask is a Pokemon introduced in Pokemon Black and White, with its Galarian variant debuting in Sword and Shield. Considered to be one of the spookiest monsters in the series, not much is known about this Pokemon, though the Professor’s research could explain the mystery behind these strange masks. All while the player earns some neat rewards along the way, of course.
