New Pokemon have come to Pokemon Shuffle to celebrate the holiday season. In honor of the spookiest time of year, a number of festive ghost and flying types are appearing in two special events.


The first Pokemon Shuffle event is Dusknoir Descends. People must defeat Dusknoir in 20 moves to win. If captured and used in a puzzle, Dusknoir might occasionally use the skill Last-Ditch Effort.


Pokemon Shuffle’s other event is a randomized, Pokemon Safari. You won’t know what Pokemon you’ll face before entering the match and can only take three in with you. (Ones strong against ghost or flying types are advised.) Once inside the match, you’ll have between 5 and 12 moves to attempt to capture Pokemon like Crobat, Dusclops, Duskull, Golbat, Gourgeist, Pumpkaboo, and Zubat.


The Pokemon Shuffle Dusknoir Descends and Pokemon Safari events will end at 1am ET on October 26. The event puzzles are available in both the Nintendo 3DS, Apple iOS, and Android versions of the game.
