There are plenty of opportunities for trainers to get their hands on Yamask during Pokémon GO’s Halloween Event. In addition to the Mystery Mask Special Research, there will be a Timed Research that is purchasable for either $1 for just the event access or $5 which comes with additional bonuses.

Trainers will be able to buy a ticket for the Timed Research throughout the Halloween Event which will be from Thursday, Oct. at 10:00 a.m. until Tuesday, Nov. 1 at 10:00 a.m. local time. After buying the ticket, trainers can take as much time as they need to complete the Timed Research Event tasks.
