Pokemon Go Halloween Event ushers in Giratina, Spiritomb, shiny Drifloom, and more Pokemon

A Halloween Event has started in Pokemon Go, bringing about new Pokemon, research tasks, and more. If you’re on the quest to round out your Pokedex, the next few days will prove to be quite fun. It’s Pokemon Go Halloween Event time!

Starting immediately, and running through November 1, you’ll find more Dark-type and Ghost-type Pokemon spawning in the wild. Chief among them will be those originally found in the Sinnoh region (Gen. 4). This includes Stunky and Drifloom, with a chance to catch or evolve shiny version of Drifloom and Drifblim.
