All Halloween Timed Research tasks and rewards in Pokémon Go

The Halloween Timed Research is not a free ticket. This is only available to anyone who wishes to spend $5 and add this ticket to their daily activities as they make their way through the Halloween event. Many tasks will have to do with catching Pokémon and finding Ghost-types. For Halloween 2022, this is the only way for players to encounter Spiritomb outside of completing Special Research tasks they received from previous events.
