Halloween-Themed Pumpkaboo Being Distributed For Pokemon X And Y

By Ishaan . October 1, 2014 . 9:31am

A special Halloween edition Pumpkaboo is being distributed for Pokémon X and Pokémon Y via the Internet, starting today through October 31st in the U.S.


The “Super Size” Pumpkaboo comes with Halloween-themed moves such as Trick-or-Treat and Scary Face. It’s also holding a Rocky Helmet, which causes damage to its opponent when they attack.


Pumpkaboo comes in four sizes, each one with different stats. The Super Size version typically features a greater HP stat then the smaller versions. When traded, this Pumpkaboo evolves into a Super Size Gourgeist, which can be used to compete in the Trick-or-Treat Friendly online competition.

      • ShawnOtakuSomething


  • I don’t think it’s up yet, but hey, this is cute of them. I think last year people sent out Pumpkaboos over Wonder Trade– I wonder if they’ll do that again this year?

  • Robert Hendrie

    Well it’s not just the US it’s North America, South America, Australia & Europe

  • Eder García

    this is indeed a “scary” surprise

  • Adrian Duran

    Should have been shiny

  • Aemette

    Just received mine and I realized that this is the only way to get me to play X again… I hope the full Battle Frontier is in the RS remakes~

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    ……in the box you go

  • soulz

    In this day and age they should just distribute all Pokemon through Wi-Fi.

  • Narrator 1

    Size thing is kinda sorta neat, but they should have given this thing its Hidden Ability, Insomnia. As it is, only the average-sized ones get it because Friend Safaris have only the average variety, which is a bit of a waste.

    Still, the thing is cute. I can see why James picked up one.

        Is that this promotional Pumpkaboo, or did someone find a way to breed a Super Sized HA?

        • Landale

          That’s the promotional one. OT is Spooky2014, pure red pokeball.

          • Narrator 1

            Ah, I see. My bad. Guess my skepticism concerning the Pokémon promotions that make it stateside got the better of me.

            Though if I may suggest, the writer of the article should mention that this downloadable Pumpkaboo has its Hidden Ability.

          • Landale

            Looking at Serebii, it doesn’t always. It merely can have it. Basically, I got lucky.


          • Robert Hendrie

            Well it’s random, just soft reset until it has it.

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        shiny? too

        • Landale

          I would assume it’s possible, as it doesn’t seem like anything other than its size and attacks are set in stone. Mine isn’t though.

          • ShawnOtakuSomething

            I got an adamant one =.

      • wububu

        Whoa so it comes with its HA? Cool!

  • Am additional rocky helmet is always welcome

  • GreatKino

    Perfect IVS? Nope? Into the trash…I mean PC box!

    • ishyg
