Halloween-Themed Pumpkaboo Being Distributed For Pokemon X And Y


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.
