How to catch Spiritomb in Pokemon Go
Spiritomb, one of Pokémon Go's rarest Pokémon, is finally here and is available in a special research quest that was introduced earlier today.
To get Spiritomb, you will need to head to the Special Research page which is usually used to capture mythical Pokémon like Mew and Celebi. There, Professions Williow will start a new quest line for you to try and get you a Spiritomb.

You'll then be asked to complete three specific quests, which include:
A Spooky Message
- Catch 10 Ghost-type Pokémon
- Make eight Great Throws
- Use 108 Berries to help catch Pokémon
- Catch 10 Dark-type Pokémon
- Spin 8 Pokéstops you haven't visited before
- Catch 108 Pokémon
Complete these quests and Spiritomb will appear as a special catch. You'll then be free to use this Pokemon however you see fit.
Spiritomb is among a group of Pokemon that have been absent from the game for some time, but that Niantic has been slowly adding. These include Deoxys, which was added as an invite-only raid, and Spinda, which recently became a mission reward for doing a set amount of curveball throws.
There is no telling how long this special research quest will be around, however, or if it is a temporary mission or only available during the holiday period, so be sure to act fast to add this Pokemon to your collection.
