A Spooky Message - Catching Spiritomb in PokemonGO

A Spooky Message - Catching Spiritomb in PokemonGO

For Halloween 2018 Niantic launched the third Special Research Quest - A Spooky Message. This is the first Special Reseach that doesn't feature a Mythincal Pokemon encounter. At the end of this 3-Stage Quest trainers get an encounter with the Ghost- and Dark-Type Pokemon Spiritomb.
