The end of October is approaching, and the ghosts continue to prowl the night. In Pokémon Go, you’ll have an exclusive chance to encounter various Ghost-type Pokémon you previously couldn’t find on October 25 from 8 AM to 10 PM in your local time. You can expect to see Yamask and its Galarian form haunting the streets of your neighborhood during the Catch Mastery: Ghost-type event. Alongside Yamask spawns, there will be ways for you to acquire Mega Gengar energy from exclusive field research tasks and a new timed research called A Spooky Message Unmasked.
A Spooky Message Unmasked will have several tasks you need to complete before the end of the event, so you have a little over 12 hours to finish all of them. These tasks will give you access to a Spiritomb, another exclusive Pokémon.
