How to get Phantump and Trevenant in Pokémon Go: Catch guide, evolution method, Shiny odds, more
The spooky tree duo are finally here.
Phantump and Trevenant have finally debuted in Pokémon Go as a part of the Ghoulish Pals slice of the Halloween Mischief event.
Finding, catching, and evolving them is straightforward, and with a dash of luck, you could stumble upon a Shiny version, but the odds are quite slim.
How to catch Phantump and Trevenant in Pokémon Go
How to evolve phantump into trevenant in pokémon go.
- Can Phantump or Trevenant be Shiny in Pokémon Go?
There are three ways to find and catch Phantump in Pokémon Go during the Halloween Mischief event:
- First, you can encounter it in the wild
- Second, you can catch it after defeating it in a one-star raid battle
- Third, you can hatch it from a 7km Egg
However, when it comes to Trevenant, the only way to get one is by evolving it from Phantump. It cannot be found and caught in the wild or after a raid, and it cannot be hatched from an Egg.
Evolving Phantump into Trevenant in Pokémon Go can be done in two ways.
- First, you can trade Phantump with a friend in person. Once they receive it, it will evolve into Trevenant. If you both have a Phantump, trade at the same time and you both get a Trevenant.
- Second, you can collect 200 Phantump Candy and use it to evolve Phantump into Trevenant. Boost your Phantump Candy by using Pinap Berries when catching Phantump, then make it your Buddy Pokémon and take it for a stroll. It’s a bit of a grind though, so trading might be a more convenient route.
Can Phantump or Trevenant be Shiny in Pokémon Go ?
Yes, both Phantump and Trevenant have Shiny versions in Pokémon Go . Like with all Shiny Pokémon , the odds of finding one are slim, roughly one in 500 .
If you’ve found a Shiny Phantump, you can evolve it into Trevenant. Just remember, you’ll need 200 Phantump Candy for the evolution if you want to keep it since trading it to a friend for evolution means you won’t get it back.

How to get trevenant in pokémon go.
Trevenant joined Pokémon Go during the Halloween event of 2021. The best attacks will take advantage of its Grass and Ghost typing for more damage.
Trevenant is the newest Ghost and Grass-type monster to join Pokémon Go . With the introduction of generation six last year, many creatures from the Kalos region are slowly making their debuts in Pokémon Go . Both Phantump and Trevenant were added to the game as part of the Halloween Event in 2021. In the original Pokémon X and Y , where both Ghost Pokémon were introduced, the only way to evolve Phantump into Trevenant is by trading with another player. This method of evolution still holds true in Pokémon Go but with a unique twist.
It is common for Pokémon to have multiple evolutionary methods. In the case of Mamoswine, trainers will need to collect 100 Swinub Candy and use a Sinnoh Stone . Currently, trainers looking to capture a Phantump will need to wait until it's back in random rotation. It's possible to randomly encounter it during nighttime when Ghost-type Pokémon appear more frequently, but Phantump is a fairly rare encounter. Alternatively, players can just wait for another Halloween event. These normally increase the spawn rate of all Ghost-type Pokémon, making it easier to find Phantump.

To evolve Trevenant, the player will need to get 200 Phantump candy, the best way to earn more candy in Pokémon Go is to set Phantump as the player's buddy. If they have Adventure Sync on in the game's settings, it will count the player's steps, even if they don't actively have the game open. The more steps the trainer takes with their Phantump, the more candy they will find on these walks . It takes 5km to gather a single Phantump candy. Although, trainers can trade for a Phantump with another player to make it evolve.
Trading For Evolution in Pokémon Go
If the player receives a Phantump through trade, there will be an option to instantly evolve it without needing any candy. This is the best way to get Trevenant without needing to invest time into walking a buddy. But it's important to mention that Pokémon traded in Pokémon Go cannot be traded back to their original trainer. Once the trade is over, that Pokémon now belongs to them. Alternatively, it's possible to get more candy using Pinap Berries .
When capturing a Pokémon, use this item to double the candy rewarded at the end of the encounter. Although its Shiny form is currently not in the game, since Trevenant is pretty new, it's likely it will take a few years before its Shiny form is added. It's easily one of the best-looking Shiny Pokémon in the game with its dead dried tree skin and red leaves.

Phantump family shiny comparison by u/TopAssistance2 in TheSilphRoad
Shiny Phantump is arguably one of the better shinies, taking on a more haunted gray-and-red appearance — perfectly fitting for this spirit-possessed tree Pokemon.
What is the shiny rate for Phantump in Pokémon Go?
As per old research by the now-defunct website The Silph Road (via Wayback Machine ), the shiny rate for Pokémon on a regular day is approximately one in 500. Phantump is not a confirmed Pokémon that gets a “permaboost” (meaning that it’s a rare spawn and thus gets a boosted shiny rate).
Shiny, good stats ✨ pic.twitter.com/CouwxWSJiv — Matthew Reynolds (@Crazyreyn) October 22, 2023
What can I do to attract more shiny Pokémon?
Not much, unfortunately. It appears to be random chance. Shiny Pokémon catch rates are set by developer Niantic, and they are typically only boosted during special events like Community Days or Safari Zones, or in Legendary Raids. There are no consumable items that boost shiny Pokémon rates.
Where can I find a list of available shiny Pokémon?
LeekDuck keeps a list of currently available shiny Pokémon . It’s a helpful visual guide that illustrates what all of the existing shiny Pokémon look like.

Pokemon Min/Max CP Values
How to use: You need to know your Pokemon's exact level. To find exactly what level your Pokémon is, power up your Pokémon following this chart until you're certain of your level from Stardust cost changes.
A Pokémon's minimum level is 1.
Every time you power up, your Pokémon gains half a level.
The best Pokemon overall across multiple roles. They have the typing, moves, and stats to succeed as top contenders.
The best Pokemon with no shields in play. Bulk or hard-hitting moves allow them to close out matchups.
The best Pokemon with shields in play. Capable of applying pressure or winning extended fights, they're ideal leads in battle.
The best Pokemon against shielded opponents, while unshielded. Their natural bulk, resistances, and strong attacks allow them to power through a disadvantage.
The best Pokemon to switch to from an unfavorable lead. These Pokemon have safe matchups and can pressure shields or deal heavy damage even in their losses.
The best Pokemon with an energy advantage. Fast energy gain or powerful moves make them dangerous after building up energy. This category also factors in a Pokemon's ability to farm down weakened opponent or overfarm in advantageous matchups.
These Pokemon perform the most dependably. They provide consistent damage and rely less on baiting shields than other Pokemon. Shorter Fast Moves also help improve consistency.
The Pokemon with the highest overall stats. They have the staying power to outlast their opponents in battle and potentially overcome type disadvantage.
The Pokemon with the highest Attack stat. They deal more damage and win Charged Move priority (CMP) against Pokemon with lower Attack stats. Stats can vary ~0-3 points depending on IV's.
The Pokemon with the highest Defense stat. They take less damage from attacks.
The Pokemon with the highest Stamina stat. They have more HP and can absorb more damage than other Pokemon. Stamina-based bulk is more resilient to Fast Move damage.

How do you know which Pokemon are the best for Trainer Battles? That question has countless answers, and below we'll go over how we arrived at ours, and how you can make the most of the rankings here.
As we improve our simulator and ranking algorithms, please note that exact rankings may change. They aren't set-in-stone fact, but a best guess at which Pokemon might or might not be good for Trainer Battles. Ultimately we hope the rankings here are a helpful resource in their own way, and help you build toward succcess.
Using the Pokemon Rankings
In the top-level rankings, you'll see a score for each Pokemon. This score is an overall performance number from 0 to 100, where 100 is the best Pokemon in that league and category. It is derived from simulating every possible matchup, with each Pokemon's most used moveset (these may be manually adjusted). Use this score to compare overall performance between Pokemon; for example, the difference between the #1 and #50 Pokemon may not be the same as the difference between the #50 and #100 Pokemon. This score also allows you to see the parity in different leagues and categories.
Trainer Battles feature a wide variety of scenarios, especially involving shields. In order to give a fuller picture, our overall rankings are derived from additional sets of rankings, where battles are simulated with different roles in mind. You can explore rankings for each of the following categories:
- Overall - Derived from a Pokemon's score in all other categories. Moves are ranked based on calculations across all opponents. Key Counters and Top Matchups, however, are taken from the Leads category.
- Leads - Ranking battles simulated with 2 shields vs. 2 shields.
- Closers - Ranking battles simulated with no shields vs. no shields.
- Switches - Ranking battles simulated with 6 turns of energy advantage and scored to favor safe matches.
- Chargers - Ranking battles simulated with 6 turns of energy advantage.
- Attackers - Ranking battles simulated with no shields vs. 2 shields.
- Consistency - Rating of how dependent Pokemon are at baiting shields.
Different Pokemon may succeed in different scenarios, so use these categories to help determine when a particular Pokemon would be the most valuable.
Within each ranking, you'll see four separate detail sections:
- Fast Moves - Which Fast Moves the Pokemon uses most in the league and category.
- Charged Moves - Which Charged Moves the Pokemon uses most in the league and category.
- Key Wins - Which battles the Pokemon performs best in, weighed by the opponent's overall score.
- Key Counters - Which significant opponents perform best against the Pokemon.
Use these to see even more information about a Pokemon, which matchups it might be useful in, and what you can use to counter it.
Using the Move Rankings
Each Pokemon has a pool of Fast Moves and a pool of Charged Moves. Some moves might be better in one battle, and other moves might be better in another. For Trainer Battles, you'll want know which moves will be the best ones to have in the most matchups. You might also want to know which Pokemon are the best candidates for a second Charged Move. The move details within each Pokemon ranking can help you determine that.
Moves are ranked using calculations primarily based on their damage and energy cost. Stat changes are also factored in. These calculations are run for each matchup, and then totaled across the format. Matchup weighting affects these numbers as well, so moves that would be used against significant meta targets will rank higher.
When looking at potential moves, keep an eye out for Pokemon that have a strong tendency toward a single Fast Move and a single Charged Move. These Pokemon will have their optimal moveset in the most matchups. On the other hand, some Pokemon see more balanced usage in their Charged Moves. This is where having a second Charged Move comes into play.
If you're investing in a second Charged Move, you want a pair that would be optimal in the most number of matchups. Two moves that would be used in 90% of matchups are better than two moves that would be used in 60% of matchups. You also want a move that adds the most value to those matchups. A second Charged Move that is used in 40% of matchups will give you more value than one that's used in 5% of matchups.
However, not all matchups are equal. When your opponent switches in a Pokemon, it isn't just random; they're likely to send out something that's strong against you. Because of this, a Charged Move that counters your counters might be more valuable than the rankings indicate. Blastoise, for example, doesn't use Ice Beam often in simulated head-to-head matchups (premier Grass-types like Meganium and Venusaur will knock it out before it can). However, Ice Beam can still be valuable when your opponent sends out these Pokemon while Blastoise has Ice Beam near or fully charged, or if you have shields while they don't.
As an exercise, select any one Pokemon in the Team Builder tool and compare its battle histograms when it has one Charged Move and when it has two. If a second Charged Move improves its matchups, it might be one worth investing in.
Rankings are generated using the following steps:
- For each category:
- Simulate every possible matchup and assign a Battle Rating for each Pokemon.
- Calculate each Pokemon's average Battle Rating across all matchups.
- Iterate through the matchups again and weigh each individual Battle Rating by the opponent's average, calculating averages again each time. Iterate through this process multiple times. Only do this if matchups are even (same shields).
- Calculate a Pokemon's category score as a percentage of its average weighted Battle Rating to the #1 Pokemon.
- For each Pokemon, calculate the geometric mean of its scores in every category for the overall score.
Battle Rating is at the core of the ranking algorithm. It tells us if a Pokemon wins in battle, and by how much. Averaging all of these tells us which Pokemon perform the best against the most other Pokemon.
Comparing averages alone isn't always best, though; you aren't equally likely to face every Pokemon, and numerous weak Pokemon of a certain type could skew the results in favor of their counters. So, the algorithm iterates through every matchup again and weighs each Battle Rating by the opponent's average. Now a good Battle Rating against a powerful Pokemon has more value than a good Battle Rating against a weak one. This process is recursive; a Pokemon that has a low original average might have a better weighted average, affecting all of the Pokemon who rate well against it, so this process runs a number of times to allow the top Pokemon and those that beat them to filter upward in the rankings.
The overall scores are calculated through a geometric mean (root of A x B x C) as opposed to a regular mean (quotient of A + B + C). This is because the category scores are percentages; adding these percentages doesn't produce a tangible value, so a geometric mean is more applicable. Geometric mean also favors well-rounded Pokemon over Pokemon who rank highly in one category but low in others.
Each Pokemon is given its optimal moveset for every matchup. Note that this can cause Pokemon with broad movesets like Mew or Suicune with Hidden Power to rank more highly than they practically should; this is already adjusted for in the overall rankings, but may appear in the Team Builder.

Trevenant is a ghostly Pokémon resembling a slender brown tree. Its shadowy black body is visible through gaps in the tree, and a single, red eye is visible through a hole near the top. There is a wavy, horn-like branch on either side of its head, both dotted with small, green leaves, and a smaller branch on its forehead. On top of its head is a cluster of green leaves. It has two arms with gnarled branches similar to its horns on the elbows. Around its wrists are cuffs of green leaves and it has three claw-like fingers on each hand. Instead of legs, it has six roots similar to a spider's legs.
Trevenant can control other trees by using its roots as a nervous system. It uses this ability to trap people who harm its forest and will curse people who cut down trees. However, it is very kind to forest-dwelling creatures and Pokémon that reside in its body. Trevenant hates Fire-type Pokémon, so lumberjacks usually bring them to repel it. It is even believed that Trevenant has consumed people, although it is unclear whether this is fact or rumor.
Trevenant and its pre-evolved form Phantump are the only known Pokémon capable of learning the move Forest's Curse .
Trevenant evolves from Phantump .
In the anime
Trevenant made its main series debut in Forging Forest Friendships! , where it kidnapped Ash . It wasn't malicious, though: it only wanted help rescuing its friends Bonsly and Sudowoodo , who had been trapped by Team Rocket .
A Trevenant appeared in Pikachu and the Pokémon Music Squad . It noticed the fight between Meowth , Chespin , and a Torchic over a Pecha Berry .
Three Trevenant appeared in A Timeless Encounter! , with two of them being normal and the third being a Totem Pokémon nicknamed Elder. Elder kept sneezing after getting a flock of Cutiefly stuck in its leaves. Ash and a young Professor Kukui freed the Cutiefly and used their Torracat and Litten , respectively, to warm up some of the Cutiefly. Afterwards, Elder rewarded Ash with a Firium Z . When Ash returned to the present , Elder was revealed to have passed away. It reappeared in a flashback in Pikachu's Exciting Adventure! .
Trevenant debuted in Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction .
A Trevenant appeared as an image in A Performance Pop Quiz! .
A Trevenant appeared in The Winding Path to Greatness! , attacking Ash, Goh , and Allister for disturbing its home forest.
Pokémon: twilight wings.
A Trevenant appeared in Moonlight .
In the manga
Two Trevenant appeared in ICYR2 .
Trevenant debuted in Trevenant Pokes , under the ownership of Essentia . It was first used to stop Korrina and Gurkinn from escaping the Tower of Mastery . Later, it constricted X , Y , Shauna , Tierno , and Trevor to prevent them from opposing Team Flare 's operation to move a dormant Xerneas back to their base .
Trevenant is playable through obtaining a Unite License. It is a melee defender that starts as Phantump, which evolves into Trevenant at level 5.

Side game data.
- No other Pokémon have the same Egg Group combination as Trevenant and its pre-evolution .
- Of all the Pokémon that evolve via trading (including with held items), Trevenant is the only one who can also be directly caught in the wild in the same generation in which it was introduced.
- Trevenant and its pre-evolution were designed by James Turner . 
Trevenant is possibly based on a kodama , the spirits of trees that sometimes inhabit old-aged trees. Its stripe-like indentation on its body is very similar to shimenawa , used to mark spiritual habitation, who are often seen tied around kodama. It is also similar to other types of tree and nature spirits and deities, such as dryads . Trevenant's fierce protection of forests may be a reference to hamadryad , or could perhaps be a nod to the concept of protected sacred groves . Its single eye may possibly be a reference to cyclopes or the mountain-dwelling yamawarawa . Its general body shape may have been based on the shape of the kanji 木, meaning wood or tree. Trevenant may also be inspired by the treelike Ents from the fiction of J. R. R. Tolkien . Its Shiny coloration is based on the birch tree, known for its gray-and-white bark, with its leaves representing a tree in the autumn.
Trevenant may be a combination of tree , revenant , and possibly treant .
Ohrot may be a combination of 大 ō (big) and ロット rot (as in a root rot ).

Pokemon GO: How To Get Shiny Phantump And Shiny Trevenant
Players can get Shiny Phantump and Shiny Trevenant in Pokemon GO by following this in-depth guide.
Pokemon GO regularly debuts new Pokemon, Shiny variants, and Mega Shiny monsters as part of in-game events. Every time a new Shiny Pokemon is added to the game, trainers look for ways to get it faster. So is the case with Shiny Phantump and Shiny Trevenant; both monsters are making their debut during the Halloween 2023 event.
Pokemon GO developers have released Shiny Phantump as a wild spawn during the first part of the Halloween 2023 event. As for Shiny Trevenant, it isn’t as straightforward as getting Shiny Phantump. Players first must catch a wild Shiny Phantump and later evolve it into a Shiny Trevenant. There is also an opportunity to encounter Shiny Phantump as a Research task encounter. That said, this guide details every way to encounter a Shiny Phantump in the game.

How To Get Shiny Phantump In Pokemon GO
The Pokemon GO Halloween 2023 event debuts the dual Ghost and Grass-type Pokemon , Shiny Phantump, and its evolution, Shiny Trevenant. Shiny Phantump comes as a wild spawn during the event, and players need to encounter multiple Phantump to catch up to its Shiny odds. Although the event offers Shiny Phantump as a wild spawn, Shiny encounter isn’t guaranteed.
Spawn rates and individual Shiny odds influence Shiny encounters. Higher spawn rates can result in more frequent Shiny encounters, and while there's no surefire way to increase a specific monster's spawn rate, players can enhance their chances using Pokemon GO items .
Items like Lure Modules and Incense can boost Pokemon spawn rates in particular locations. Pokemon GO also has a Weather Boost effect that can enhance spawn rates and performance power of specific monsters in areas with certain weather conditions.
Phantump spawns more frequently in areas with fog and sunny weather. The Halloween 2023 event boosts the Phantump spawn rate, and players can increase it even further using these in-game items and the weather boost function.
To further boost Phantump spawns, players can locate a PokeStop or Gym in an area with fog and sunny weather, attach a Pokemon GO Lure Module, and activate Incense. Walking around the area while these effects are active will significantly increase the number of Phantump spawns. This strategy aids in catching up to the Shiny odds for Phantump.
Pokemon GO: How To Get Shiny Trevenant
After catching a Shiny Phantump, the next step is to evolve it into a Shiny Trevenant. This evolution costs 200 Pokemon GO Candy or 0 Candy if traded. The exact Candy requirement applies to evolving the standard variant of Phantump, and to acquire the necessary Candy, players can catch multiple Phantump and transfer them. Once the evolution process is successful, players will finally get a Shiny Trevenant.
Pokemon GO is available for Android and iOS.

Pumpkaboo 100% perfect IV stats, shiny Pumpkaboo in Pokémon Go
Everything you need to know about Pumpkaboo’s Spotlight Hour.
This week’s Spotlight Hour is all about the Pumpkin Pokémon, which is absolutely perfect for Halloween! Get ready to go looking for a perfect Pumpkaboo in Pokémon Go .
Gourgeist, Pumpkaboos’s evolution, is unique in that it comes in four different sizes - each with its own stat spread, but don’t get tricked into giving your opponent a treat; this Pokémon is pretty much a worse version of next week’s Spotlight Hour Pokémon, Trevenant, in Pokémon Go .
But more importantly for competitive players, the double catch Stardust bonus running alongside this Spotlight Hour is always a fantastic bonus - it’s just a shame that this bonus wasn’t given last week, when we had Shroomish, a Pokémon that drops Stardust as if it were spores...
On this page:
Pumpkaboo 100% perfect IV stats in Pokémon Go
Is gourgeist good in pvp, is there a shiny pumpkaboo in pokémon go, what does shiny pumpkaboo look like, other tips for this spotlight hour.
This week’s Spotlight Hour is a great opportunity to catch a Pumpkaboo with perfect IV stats.
'Perfect' means two things in Pokémon Go, depending on how you plan to use a given Pokémon. First, there’s the maxed out, 100% IV version, which is the 15/15/15 you’re looking for your 4* Pokédex, raids and Master League . Yet, because of how CP is calculated using three stats, a perfect IV Pokémon is generally only ever the best version of itself in the Master League.
Of course, you can’t see the IV of a Pokémon without catching it first, but, with a little research beforehand, you can quickly spot a perfect Pumpkaboo based on the CP alone.
If you’re at Level 30 (or above), you’ll ideally be looking for the following CPs for a perfect 15/15/15 Pumpkaboo:
- Level 30 (wild CP maximum) - 1030 CP
- Level 35 (weather-boosted wild CP maximum) - 1116 CP
The wild CP value aligns with your Trainer Level until you reach Level 30 and, due to the majority of the player base now being above this level, we’ve kept to these values for the sake of simplicity. These values will, however, be different if you’re currently below Level 30.
There’s no skirting around this: it is so similar to Trevenant that it is up against very stiff competition. Both are Ghost and Grass-type Pokémon with mostly similar movesets, but Gourgeist lacking Shadow Claw is too much of an issue for it to be worth using.
However, if you’ve put your big kid pants on and are loudly declaring that you ain’t ‘fraid of no Ghost trees, there’s a couple of things to be aware of: Large Gourgeist works best for Great League and Super Gourgeist works better for Ultra League . Master League is a no-no, you’ll just be left with smashed pumpkin.
Large and Super, of course, relate to the size of the Pokémon, and, of course, these are the relatively rare sizes, which means you have your work cut out for you if you’re really going to try to make this work. You can read more about how this works, on our page explaining how Pumpkaboo works in Pokémon Go .
The other thing to note is that you’ll want to run Hex, Shadow Ball and Seed Bomb . That’s almost the same as Trevenant - you’re just missing the best Ghost-type Fast attack...
This brings us to the matchups. In Great League , you can beat Swampert, Medicham, Lanturn and Galarian Stunfisk. Losses will come from Bastiodon, Pelipper, Carbink, Scrafty and Registeel.
Ultra League Swampert, Tapu Fini, Cobalion and Cresselia. Losses will come from Trevenant (obviously), Obstagoon, Walrein, Giratina and Jellicent.
And Master League ? No means no.
The Season of Adventures Abound is here! The Halloween event has returned, bringing with it Greavard and Houndstone . Party Play - Pokémon Go's multiplayer feature - is here, along with the Welcome Party quest. You can also work on the Timed Investigation: Master Ball quest and compete in the Go Battle League . Be sure to compete in Shadow Raids , complete Routes , use Daily Adventure Incense for the chance of encountering Galarian Articuno, Galarian Zapdos and Galarian Moltres . This incense may also give you encounters with other rare Pokémon in Pokémon Go.
Yes, there is a shiny Pumpkaboo in Pokémon Go ! Shiny Pumpkaboo and Gourgeist were released in October 2022, as part of the annual Halloween event!
However, since Spotlight Hours do not have a boosted shiny rate, the chances of finding a shiny are the same as it would be finding it in the wild. You simply have more chances of finding one because of the number that spawn.
As you can see below, shiny Pumpkaboo swaps its pumpkin-themed colouring for a more ethereal look. Oranges become purple and browns become black. The two yellow spots on the body, eerily looking like eyes (they’re not the eyes), keep their lantern-yellow hue, leaving us with an overall excellent shiny. This is a shiny that just oozes Halloween spirit.
Shiny Gourgeist follows this theme, but is slightly less striking. The hair/arms swaps from peach to purple, the browns swap to black and the next is just ever so slightly lighter. It’s still a very nice shiny, but it’s just not as cool as shiny Pumpkaboo!
Shiny Pumpkaboo Family Comparison by u/Jacobcornwell_ in TheSilphRoad
Thanks to Reddit user Jacobcornwell_ for the preview showing shiny Pumpkaboo’s evolution.
Aside from trying to catch a shiny Pumpkaboo in Pokémon Go, there are a couple of other good reasons to partake in this week’s Spotlight Hour :
- The best reason is, of course, the double catch Stardust bonus running throughout the hour. This gives you the chance to gather Stardust twice as fast as usual, with each Pumpkaboo caught giving 200 Stardust instead of the base 100. If the in-game weather is foggy or sunny , this adds an additional 50 Stardust (twice the usual 25), and this is stacks with a Star Piece to give a 1.5x multiplier to all Stardust gained. This means that each weather-boosted Pumpkaboo caught while using a Star Piece will be worth 375 Stardust!
- If you’re a newcomer, this Spotlight Hour is the perfect time to collect enough Pumpkaboo candy to fully evolve this Pokémon and enter its evolution, Gourgeist, in the Pokédex.
- If there are four possible sizes of Pumpkaboo and Gourgeist, with each having their own spot on the Pokédex page. If you’re missing any of these, this is your perfect chance to fill that gap!
- Thanks to Pumpkaboo being a Grass and Ghost-type, catching a bunch during this Spotlight Hour will add progress to your respective catch bonus medals .
Spotlight Hour events only last for an hour - 6pm to 7pm (local time). Next week’s Spotlight Hour events features the Stump Pokémon, Phantump!
Good luck finding a perfect Pumpkaboo!

Pokemon GO: Shadow Lugia Raid Guide | Counters, Weaknesses & More
Posted: October 27, 2023 | Last updated: October 27, 2023
Pokemon GO developers at Niantic constantly feature the infamous Team GO Rocket as the main antagonist. The Team GO Rocket Takeover is a regular event providing players several new and old Shadow Pokemon encounters. The latest Team GO Rocket Takeover event of October 2023 marks Shadow Lugia's debut as a legendary Shadow Raid boss.
The Pokemon GO Team GO Rocket event Starts on Thursday, October 26, at 10 AM and runs until Tuesday, October 31, at 8 PM Local Time. The event offers in-game content such as Field Research, Special Research, Egg hatches, and numerous raid opportunities. Players can battle Shadow Lugia for the first time as a 5-Star Shadow Raid and get a chance to encounter it afterward. That said, this guide explores everything one needs to know before attempting the Shadow Lugia raid.

Pokemon GO: Shadow Lugia Weaknesses And Resistances
The dual Psychic and Flying-type Shadow Lugia has boosted offensive capabilities compared to its standard variant. The Johto region monster possesses a maximum Pokemon GO CP of 4186 and a stat spread comprising 193 (ATK), 310 (DEF), and 235 (STA). The Shadow Pokemon is weak against Dark, Electric, Ghost, Ice, and Rock-type attacks but can resist Fighting, Ground, Grass, and Psychic-type moves.
Since Shadow Lugia experiences a performance boost in windy weather conditions, trainers should avoid such raid locations. One can also use the Same Type of Attack Bonus (STAB) while selecting counters in Pokemon GO . When a monster’s innate type and attack type are identical, that particular attack can inflict boosted damage.
Best Shadow Lugia Raid Counters In Pokemon GO
Legendary Shadow Pokemon are mighty, and their boosted capabilities make tackling them even harder. One needs proper meta-knowledge and counters aligned with its weaknesses to win against the Shadow Lugia. Pokemon GO players can make a battle roster full of the Shadow Raid boss’s weaknesses to ensure victory.
Once players defeat Shadow Lugia in Pokemon GO raids , they have an opportunity to encounter its Shiny variant. Encountering a Shiny Shadow Lugia requires catching up to its Shiny spawn rate, but the Shiny encounter isn’t guaranteed. Players must defeat as many Shadow Lugia raids as possible and encounter multiple Shadow Lugia to catch up to its Shiny spawn rate.
Pokemon GO is available for iOS and Android.
