Team Rocket’s infiltration into Pokémon Masters EX’s limited-time events is at its end. So what new event will take its place? Now that we’re gearing up for Halloween, it’s only fair for everyone on the island of Pasio to begin celebrating! This year we’ll see two more characters get a Halloween makeover and take part in a spooktacular story. See Elite Four member Caitlin and Gym Leader Morty in their Halloween splendor and get ready to collect a bunch of Pika-Lanterns!


Story Event: Midnight Spookfest

  • Morty and Caitlin are dressed for Lear’s fantastical Halloween bash! Join them and Hilbert in Story Event: Midnight Spookfest, earning Pika-Lanterns with every battle!
  • Exchange Mini Pika-Lanterns and Big Pika-Lanterns for Items!
    • You can earn Mini Pika-Lanterns and Big Pika-Lanterns by completing battles. After collecting enough of them, trade them for valuable items using the Exchange Items menu.
  • Lineup Bonuses – you can earn bonus rewards if you have specific Sync Pairs in your lineup for battles in this event. The more of these sync pairs you place in your lineup, the more rewards you’ll obtain!

      • Example 1: If you place a x1.6 and a x1.2 Sync Pair on your team, you will receive x1.8 the number of Mini Pika-Lanterns and Big Pika-Lanterns.
    • Note: Acerola (Fall 2020) & Mimikyu and Acerola & Palossand cannot be in your lineup at the same time. 
    • Note: Sync Pairs with Pokémon that were hatched from Eggs are not applicable for lineup bonuses.
