During the Pokémon Unite Halloween Festival, players will be able to unlock lots of Halloween-themed items for their Trainers, such as a Pumpkin Pikachu mask, a Halloween candy backpack and more. There's also a new Pokémon available to unlock and a creepy makeover on the battle map to fit the season.

Pokémon Unite continues to grow as one of the best Android games available. The game is also completely free-to-play, though players can choose to pay for various boosters that help speed through the ranks and unlock items faster. There's a growing roster of Pokémonand since this is a service game, that list can very safely be expected to grow quite a bit in the coming months.
