    The next Pokémon Go Halloween event for 2021 has been announced for mobile play and will happen in the middle of Season of Mischief. As it takes place during this season, the event is called Halloween Mischief and releases three new Pokémon that players will be able to catch at the start of the event. We will break down all the details for the Halloween Mischief event and how it works in this guide.



    Mischief Halloween Event

    The Halloween Mischief event will be split into two parts: Creepy Companions and Ghoulish Pals. Halloween Mischief Pikachu and Piplup will appear in the wild during the event and Halloween Mischief Drifblim will appear in three-star raids. There is a chance to catch a brilliant version of all three Pokémon. There will also be a Pikachu Pumpkin Head, Pumpkaboo Shirt, Pumpkaboo Pants, Hoopa Headband, and Halloween Face Sticker that you can purchase in the shop starting October 14th.

    Disturbing companions

    Creepy Companions will run from 15-22 October. During this event, Galarian Slowking will make an appearance. You will need to catch a Galarian Slowpoke and then, while having this Pokémon as your friend, catch 30 Psychic-type Pokémon before evolving it into a Galarian Slowking. This Pokémon will be available after the event.
