Beginning today, The Pokémon Company International will make a special Super-Size Pumpkaboo available to players of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y via Nintendo Network. They are also launching a Halloween-themed page on the official Pokémon website with various tricks and treats. Head there now at Pokemon.com/TCG.
This distribution will allow players to easily qualify for the Trick-or-Treat Friendly Online Competition, which video game players can find details about on Pokemon.com. To qualify, every participant’s Battle Box must include a Super-Size Gourgeist. The easiest way to find this Gourgeist is to get a Super-Size Pumpkaboo for your Pokémon X or Pokémon Y game, and then trade it to have it evolve into the battle-ready Gourgeist.
Even non-competitors can get in the Halloween spirit with Pumpkaboo! This Super-Size Pumpkaboo comes with moves perfect for Halloween, including Trick-or-Treat and Scary Face. Plus, it’s holding a Rocky Helmet, which can cause damage to its attacker.
Pumpkaboo, the Pumpkin Pokémon, comes in four sizes, each featuring different stats for players to take advantage of. Super-Size Pumpkaboo typically possess a larger HP stat than their smaller counterparts, making them more durable during Pokémon Battles. Even more bone-chilling than that, Pumpkaboo and Gourgeist are the only known Pokémon that can learn the move Trick-or-Treat, which can add an eerie element to any encounter by adding the Ghost type to opponents.
I’m a sucker for all this exclusive stuff. But I haven’t played Pokémon Since Heart Gold/Soul Silver. Been on the fence since Black and White.
How do we get the Pumpkaboo?
There’s a guide right here. Probably shoulda linked it in the article.
There’s an off-chance that the Pumpkaboo you’d get would have its hidden ability “Insomnia”, according to Serebii.net.
