Pokemon Go: Debut Of Galarian Yamask Teased For Halloween Event

Niantic has confirmed that Galarian Yamask will debut in Pokemon Go later this month via a tease on social media.

For a lot of people, the biggest, busiest, and best time of the year is the upcoming holiday season. However, before we get to that, there’s another very popular time of year to celebrate. Halloween. For Pokemon Go players, Halloween has become the most eventful time of the year. Outside of Go Fest, of course, which takes place over the summer.

There’s so much spooky stuff in the Pokemon universe that Niantic will have enough new content to add each Halloween for the next ten years or more. Whether it be ghost-type Pokemon or the addition of strange eggs, which will still be available once their event comes to an end. This year, there have been a number of rumors doing the rounds thanks to various leaks. It turns out that one of those leaks is true, and has been confirmed via Pokemon Go’s social media accounts.

It wasn’t a full reveal, but rather a tease that confirms the imminent arrival of Galarian Yamask. A short clip showing a silhouette of the Pokemon shrouded in mist was posted along with the caption “guess who?”. Surely this would have been the perfect opportunity to dust off the iconic “who’s that Pokemon?”. Maybe that would have been a little bit obvious.

Players of Sword and Shield will know that Galarian Yasmak evolves into Runerigus. While that might imply the gen eight Pokemon is coming to Pokemon Go, the unique way in which Galarian Yamask evolves might prove to be a bit of a problem. Trainers have to walk under a particular bridge after Yamask has taken at least 49 HP damage for it to evolve into Runerigus. Sword and Shield players who have no idea what we’re talking about can check out TheGamer’s guide on how to evolve Galarian Yamask.

Rather than have trainers find a bridge to walk under in Pokemon Go, Niantic could ignore that odd element if Pokemon lore and just have Galarian Yamask evolve via candies. Either way, the addition of a new Pokemon to Pokemon Go is always exciting. No word yet on when exactly it will start appearing in the wild, or if Galarian Yamask will be available via other means. Prior to Yamask’s arrival, trainers can occupy themselves by trying to find and catch Shedinja.

Josh has been gaming for as long as he can remember. That love began with a mild childhood addiction to the Sega Genesis, or Mega Drive since he lives in the UK. Back then, Sonic 2 quickly became his favorite game and as you might have guessed from his picture, the franchise has remained close to his heart ever since. Nowadays, he splits his time between his PS4 and his Switch and spends far too much time playing Fortnite.
