Celebrate Halloween with a Special Pokemon – Spooky Pumpkaboo

by Kyle Hanson


Nintendo and The Pokemon Company are celebrating Halloween by giving players a special event Pokemon for Pokemon X & Y. From now until the end of October you can get a Spooky Pumpkaboo via the Nintendo Network. This isn’t just a regular Pumpkaboo though, he has special moves themed around the Halloween season. Check out the announcement below for all of the details:

Celebrate the Halloween season with Pumpkaboo! You can get this special Ghost- and Grass-type Pokémon via Nintendo Network distribution during the month of October. This Super Size Pumpkaboo comes with moves that fit the Halloween theme, including Trick-or-Treat and Scary Face. Plus, it’s holding a Rocky Helmet, which can cause damage to its attacker!

When traded, this Pokémon evolves into Gourgeist, which is the Pokémon you need to compete in the Trick-or-Treat Friendly. Trade Pumpkaboo with a friend so you’re both ready to compete!

Pumpkaboo is available via Nintendo Network for your Pokémon X or Pokémon Y game from October 1 through October 31. Don’t miss this opportunity to get a special Pumpkaboo and have a happy Halloween!

To download the special Pokemon just follow these steps:

  • Select MYSTERY GIFT on the main menu, and then RECEIVE GIFT. Select YES to confirm.
  • Select Get Via Internet, then Yes.
  • Watch as you receive Pumpkaboo!
  • Speak to the delivery girl in any Pokémon Center to receive Pumpkaboo.
  • Be sure to save your game!

That last step is very important since you will lose the Pokemon if you do not save after receiving him from the delivery girl. These special event Pokemon can become pretty rare and are great for trading with others, so you don’t want to miss out.
