Pokémon Unite Halloween Festival includes Greedent and holiday skins

Pokémon UniteThe macabre is being celebrated by the organizers, as well as the rest of the world. The event will run from October 20 through Nov. 10. Fans can still get involved. PokémonUnite and pick up some ghoulish skins and costumes for their Pokémon in the game’s first Halloween Festival. Most notably, Greedent, the squirrel Pokémon, will join the game’s growing roster.

While we’re light on exact details for the Halloween Festival, the event’s new trailer shows off a host of skins and effects. First, we see the arena covered in pumpkins carved after Pokémon, and there’s a variety of moves that come with new pumpkin effects. It’s unclear if these are special effects for the festival itself, or if they’ll play year-round while wearing Halloween skins — some skins say they come with special effects, so it’s likely tied to the costumes themselves.

There are many skins to choose from: spooky to occupational and cold-weather hipster. We see Lucario in a Zorro-esque costume, Blastoise shows off its cool firefighter costume, and Charizard gets a simple knit hat and scarf — not that it’d need that much help keeping warm. You can also choose from a range of skins, such as Slowbro wearing a sweater or other options. You can also customize your profile or trainer with Halloween-y options.

We only see Greedent for a moment, and it’s currently unclear if the new Pokémon will appear in-game on Oct. 20 or sometime later in the event. We can see that it uses some type of seed-spitting abilities and consumes berries before jumping to deal a lot of area damage.

Fans will learn more and discover the Festival’s scary and cozy new secrets when the event launches on Oct. 20.
