Pokémon Go’s yearly Halloween event is Halloween Mischief Part 2: Ghoulish Pals. It introduces new Halloween hat Pokémon to the game, as well as Galarian Slowking and Mega Absol. Our Pokémon Go Halloween Mischief Part 2 guide will show you the increased Pokémon spawns, raid targets, and research tasks to complete.
