The latest "Pokemon GO" 0.189.0 APK breakdown is rolling with hints about the upcoming Halloween event for the next few weeks along with some updates of AR scanning for Gyms and Pokestops.

Pokemon GO Hub, known for releasing leaks and updates about the Niantic game, revealed that a Halloween logo will be used for the event. There will also be three different gift boxes with spooky designs, new pokemon, new moves, and others.

New Pokemon

It was previously reported by Game Rant that Giratina, a Ghost/Dragon Legendary Pokemon will be returning for a limited time in a five-star raid. However, fans are not that pleased since this is not the first time that Giratina became part of a raid and its overused in the game.

The appearance of Giratina in the Halloween event is actually just right considering that this is a Ghost-type Pokemon. This legendary pokemon, which looks like a spectral serpent, will be available October 9-23 in its Origin Forme.

Apart from Giratina, Runerigus, the evolution of Galarian Yamask, will be joining the game. However, this does not mean that Runerigus will be released in this year's "Pokemon GO" Halloween event.





Introduced in Generation VIII, Runerigus (Deathbarn) is a dual-type Ground/Ghost Pokémon. To get to this form, Galarian Yamask should travel under the stone bridge in Dusty Bowl. However, it is required for Yamask to take at least 49 HP in damage without fainting.

New Gift Boxes

Tied with a green riboon, one of the gift boxes has orange pumpkin colors which seemingly resembles the creepy carved mouth of a pumpkin. Another one is gray with striped dark violet ribbon and cobweb design while the third box is red with black and white polkadot ribbon. However, the content of the boxes are not yet confirmed.



New Costume

The code SABLEYE_COSTUME_2020 suggests that there will be a new costume for Sableye, which is also a Dark/Ghost-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III. Read Also: 'Pokemon GO' Grubhub Special Weekend Event Might Be Your Chance to Encounter Shiny Ferroseed!
