A brand new ‘What Lies Beneath the Mask?’ Special Research story has debuted in Pokemon Go for the Halloween Mischief event, and there are some great Yamask rewards on offer for completing all of the tasks.

Niantic is celebrating spooky season in the right way, as the second half of October 2021 will feature new creatures, some Shiny debuts, and a brand new Special Research story as part of Pokemon Go’s Halloween Mischief event.

That event-exclusive Special Research story is called ‘What Lies Beneath the Mask?’ and it offers Trainers the perfect opportunity to catch both Yamask and Galarian Yamask, two species that can only be found during Halloween events.

Getting enough Candy to evolve Yamask into Cofagrigus and Galarian Yamask into Runerigus is no easy task thanks to the Pokemon’s exclusivity, but this Special Research will also offer Yamask Candy as a reward for completing all 4 Steps.

That’s not all, though, as there are also encounters with other Halloween-themed Pokemon like Banette, Alolan Marowak, and a very special costume Pikachu to unlock by completing each Step in the Special Research story.
