Due to this being the two spooky ‘mon’s debuts, neither of them will have shiny variants.
The second half of the Halloween Mischief event has brought in a new size mechanic alongside Pumpkaboo’s debut.
Currently only available to the ‘mon and its evolved form, the Pokemon won’t just spawn as one size on the map: you’ll see it as Small, Average, Large, and Super Size. This also applies to its evolution, Gourgeist.
Found in the Today View, the Pumpkaboo Collection Challenge will reward Trainers with 5 Rare Candy, as well as adding the Collection Challenge to your Elite Collector medal.
To do so, you’ll need to find 4 different size variants of Pumpkaboo, which are as follows:
- Pumpkaboo Small Size – A common encounter in the wild.
- Pumpkaboo Average Size – One-star Raids and a common encounter in the wild.
- Pumpkaboo Large Size – A rare encounter in the wild.
- Pumpkaboo Super Size – A rare encounter in the wild.
For full details into the Collection Challenge, as well as information on how to evolve Pumpkaboo into Gourgeist, make sure to check out our dedicated guide.
