Another chance for players to catch Spiritomb has appeared in Pokémon Go.

Players will have to complete this short set of limited-time Special Research, A Spooky Message. If you already have Spiritomb from last year, you’ll just get a chance to nab another, along with some candy.

  • Make eight great throws (1,080 XP)
  • Use 108 berries to help catch Pokémon (Lickitung encounter)

Step 2

  • Catch 10 dark-type Pokémon (Yamask encounter)
  • Spin eight Pokéstops you haven’t visited before (1,080 XP)
  • Catch 108 Pokémon (Spiritomb encounter)
