Every Pokémon GO Community Day frames its Special Research Tasks around the featured Pokémon. In theme for Halloween, the fire and dark-type Pokémon, Litwick, was the headline for this month’s Community Day. The event took place on Oct. 15 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. local time, and trainers were able to enjoy increased encounters with the Candle Pokémon and receive exclusive bonuses for using items and collecting XP and Candy. 

During this time, trainers were also able to purchase a ticket for $1.00 to access Litwick’s Community Day Special Research Story, the Trick of the Light. For this, the ticket must be purchased in Pokémon GO's ingame shop during its Community Day. After the ticket is bought, trainers can have as much time as they want to complete the tasks.

The Trick of the Light Special Research Tasks are divided up in four sections, allowing trainers to earn awards for individually completing each task, for each section, and an extra award at the end. These rewards were very similar to last month's Rock ‘n’ Roll Special Research Story that starred Roggenrola.
