Following the conclusion of the 2023 Pokemon GO Halloween, at 8 PM local time on October 31, Gengar will only be available to catch through the Showdown in the Shadows Research.

However, if you missed out, there’s a chance it could return in next year’s Halloween celebrations.

Can Tricks & Treats Costume Gengar Be Shiny in Pokemon GO?

Yes, Tricks & Treats costume Gengar can be shiny in Pokemon GO, and you can find it in the wild or from Raid rewards.

This is unlike the shiny version of the non-costumed Gengar, which cannot be shiny in the wild.

Despite this, whether it is wearing a costume or not, the shiny version of Gengar will always be a darker, purple-gray color.
