Part 2 of Pokemon Go's Halloween event is now underway. This portion runs until Nov. 1 and introduces its own slate of spooky new Pokemon to catch, namely costume-wearing versions of Vulpix, Gengar and other monsters. On top of that, costumed Pokemon from last year's Halloween event are making an encore appearance.

Here's everything you need to know about Pokemon Go's Halloween 2022 celebration.

Halloween event schedule

Like last year, Pokemon Go's Halloween 2022 event is divided up into two parts.

Part 1 kicked off Oct. 20 at 10 a.m. local time and ran until the same time on Oct. 27. Part 2 picked up immediately afterward and will end on Nov. 1 at 10 a.m. local time.

Featured Pokemon

Several new costumed Pokemon have arrived as part of this year's Halloween event. You can find costume-wearing versions of Vulpix and Pumpkaboo in the wild, while a new costumed Gengar is appearing in three-star raids.

On top of that, you still have a chance to encounter Pokemon introduced during part one of the event. Mega Banette is appearing in Mega raids until Nov. 1, and you can still get shiny versions of Galarian Yamask and Noibat. The former can be found in one-star raids and by completing research tasks, while the latter may hatch from 7-kilometer eggs.
