Pokémon Go added Sirfetch’d and Galarian Ponyta while celebrating the launch of Crown Tundra for Sword and Shield, but now it’s all about Halloween. While there’s plenty to do in Niantic’s hit mobile game right now, there’s also a Pokémon Go Halloween Cup 2020. Here you’ll find a list of potentially best Pokémon to use for teams, and you’ll also find an explanation for the rewards and end time.

While the tourney is something for players to participate in, trainers should also be opting to complete the tasks and rewards for A Spooky Message Unmasked. Not only that, but there’s also Darkrai to battle via five-star raids, and everyone’s favourite creatures are donning costumes to celebrate this wicked time of year.

But, away from all of the above, below you’ll find an explanation of the rewards and end time for the Pokémon Go Halloween Cup 2020, and you’ll find a list of potentially best Pokémon to use for teams.

When does the Pokémon Go Halloween Cup 2020 end?

The Pokémon Go Halloween Cup 2020 will end on November 3rd at the time of 13:00 PST.
